I'm worried about spreading herpes to my children.
I just found out that I have herpes about a week ago. Like most, I am devastated, but have to keep strong because I am a single mom of 2 and can't let my kids see me down. My biggest fear right now is that I will somehow spread it to my mouth (I have genital herpes) and then without knowing it's "active", I will kiss my kids and give it to them. I couldn't live with myself if that happened. How common is it to pass? Should I avoid kissing them all together?
