Not a poem, just words.
Gross but actually really sad,..
When I see a comment like this, I’m not sure how to respond. This was such a vulnerable story to tell. I was so scared to share my HSV experience with anyone and decided that Tumbr would be the right platform: somewhat anonymous, but with a community of supporters behind it. This was reblogged and attach with the word “gross” months ago. I first saw this comment at work and felt so dirty about myself. Was my HSV gross and sad? Was I? Was it wrong to open up about this?
No. I am not sad, nor gross. And my story isn’t either. It was a lot for come out and share everything, but HSV isn’t a dirty little secret and I won’t treat it like one.
Your words are powerful- watch how you use them.
