Learn how you can become a confident and empowered person who is living with an STI, just like our Executive Director, Jenelle Marie Pierce, through overcoming shame, dismantling stigma, and reclaiming your narrative!
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for everything you have done. It really was the catalyst that I needed to start to talk to my close friends and family about this and, in turn, a lot of the stress has vanished. For the first time in a really long time, I feel like I’m getting better physically, and especially mentally, and what you have done here is a huge part of that. I hope you know that you change lives for the better.
Thank you so much for this. I deeply appreciate the non-judgmental and supportive space. It’s a process of peeling the onion, which I’m super committed to. I am looking forward to moving along this path of breaking my own internalized stigma and maybe even helping others with it one day, even if that’s through just one-on-one conversations.
I just wanted to say how thankful I am for having someone like you give a voice to those of us with STIs… Because of you, I was able to look at my diagnosis in a different light. I’m not HSV1, I’m a living breathing soul who just happens to have HSV1. Thank you for reminding me not to define myself by this <3
I love your website and your posts and your confidence! It’s always really hard for me to find people that have herpes that are super confident and can talk genuinely about it. I was diagnosed at 18 and had to go through the entire journey to accept myself for it and understand that it doesn’t make me any less of a person. Thank you for being such a powerful influence in that journey.
