The story of a New York City couple who changed their lives when they discovered that their own wedding dress could cure herpes.
By Anna O’Brien.
“My husband and I both grew up in New York.
We were both raised Catholic, and we had both been married for 30 years,” said his bride, Lauren St. Pierre.
“I was never really aware of herpes until I went into my first STD test.
I was shocked.
I remember my husband going to the doctor and seeing the blood on the test.
It was red and it was on the outside of my neck.
I thought, Oh, my gosh, that’s really bad.
But I thought it was just a blip.
My doctor said, It’s actually something that can affect you.”
Herpes was one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United States in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
She said that she had been sexually active since she was 16 years old, but she never had sex.
Her husband, Joseph, also grew up Catholic and didn’t have herpes until he was 27 years old.
His father was a doctor and his uncle was a surgeon.
They didn’t know about herpes until they went to the same clinic that Lauren was going to, and they both had herpes.
“When I saw the blood and the redness, it was like a warning sign,” Joseph told The Associated Press.
“My dad looked at me and said, I’ve never seen anything like this before.
I said, No, that isn’t right.
I asked, What do you mean?
He said, You’ve never been in the same room as somebody who has herpes.
It’s scary to know what that means.”
Joseph said that he was shocked that he could not tell his father and uncle.
They said that they had been having herpes since childhood.
They both also suffered from depression and anxiety.
“I never thought that I’d be in a position where I could do something like this,” Joseph said.
“And that was the most painful thing in my life.”
In an effort to find a solution to the problem, Joseph and Lauren started a foundation called HealHerpes.
They have given out over $2 million in funds to more than 150 organizations and organizations across the country.
Joseph says that he and Lauren are now able to share their story with other couples and to help other people who are struggling.
“It’s really important that we know that we have a cure.
We are the first generation that has been tested and we have tested, and there are no treatments or treatments that can stop this virus from spreading.
We need to be part of a solution, so we can find solutions to the problems that we see around us,” he said.
