2014 December, I had an outbreak of genital herpes. I was 19 and was a virgin until I was dating this individual who was 24 years old. He had previously told me he had only slept with one person who was a virgin before me and gave me the feeling of safety. I was in an outbreak for many weeks with a lot of pain and my doctor almost sent me to the hospital due to how bad my outbreak was. I have been on medication ever since to keep the STD at bay. I suffered from depression and anxiety before this happened and this has much affected both of these things. This has emotionally affected me more than I could explain . I have been off the medication for a week but then due to the anxiety I have daily, I began to get outbreaks again! This has affected my day to day life and my fear of ever passing it on or having children. I have to pay for daily medication and deal with something that was the most horrifying, scary and painful experiences of my life. I was in bed for weeks and am now horrified to come off my medication. Can I sue this person for personal injury? We were dating but he left me days before I found out about this and refused to take responsibility.
