I don’t know what kind of doctor he was, except the kind that buys waitresses martinis after their shifts, in exchange for letting him give them backrubs. Dan and was supplied with a jar of mealy horsepills, a treatment for chlamydia I am pretty sure no one had taken since 1982. I spent the next month not texting back the people I had been dating or having sex with.I made excuses when my friends asked me to go out, trying to avoid meeting new potential partners.
While some people will choose to date someone else, there will be people who are interested, because they are looking at more than just your STI status or you as a sexual being. He didn’t tell me he was positive (I think he gave me all three STDs), and I had my first HSV outbreak four days later on a military flight headed to the Middle East.The truth is, STIs are not rare and shouldn’t be shocking, regardless of the whole “but it can’t happen to me” thing.
