Support Meeting Today- “Stigma & Me” 

Today’s Topic: “Stigma & Me” 

This week we will explore the stigma that comes with HSV- why is it taboo when it’s so common? How did we get here and can we change it?!

Why is it we feel so alone when first diagnosed? When most of the population has a form of HSV? Stigma, y’all! It’s something almost everyone has and refuses to discuss. It’s up to us to stomp it out!

People hide behind terms like “cold sores” and “canker sores”. We all know what’s on your face, Karen!!!

See you tonight!

We’ve partnered with the Polk County Health Department to provide an in-person herpes support group. The group will meet regularly; every 3rd Tuesday of the month @ 6pm. Hope to see you there!
