"Repurposing" this blog

If you were to do a web search right now, you might come across my initial use for this blog...to help keep myself honest and accountable when joining Oprah and millions of women participating in her healthier eating program.

I didn't exactly quit the program...what happened was I became ill. There was no way to follow any exercise/healthier eating program as sick as I was...so this little blog simply languished in the ethernet.

Until now.

I've toyed with the idea of an audio blog where *anyone* could call and talk about their story about how they got herpes and/or genital warts, how they feel about having herpes/genital warts, their desires to educate others and eliminate the unfair and undeserved stigma that having either or both of these STD's...

You get the idea.

The purpose of this blog is to help others and bring media attention to a problem rarely discussed...because it is a disease that is, for the most part...DOWN THERE...which many people interpret as being dirty or embarassing.

Stick around for stories, statistics, and articles to help you become more understanding of what having herpes and genital warts is all about. If you know someone who has either of these STD's...please refer them here. There are links on this page that will take them to support groups where they can get the emotional support and understanding they might need...and gain many friends in the process.

Thanks for visiting.
