Patient Leader

I am a writer and aspiring sexologist who intertwines creativity with holistic health, fitness, and sexual wellness. Shortly after graduating college in 2015, I was diagnosed with HSV-2, commonly known as genital herpes. After a deep period faced with tremendous amounts of shame and stigma, I decided to start talking about the effects of my diagnosis via a personal blog. Since December 2015, I have been writing about how to navigate dating, relationships, and sex after an STI diagnosis.
