What You Feel and How to Deal With it if You Are Affected by STD?
Sexually Transmitted Disease or STD for short sounds to be scary for those of you who do not really fully understand about it. It can happen to trans people of all ages who are sexually active. You have yourself tested for STD if you want to know if you are affected by it. When the test result comes out and it reveals that you are STD positive, you might feel this way:
If you are so preoccupied with so many things in your mind of why and how you got STD and you cannot express your thoughts simultaneously in one sentence, your emotions come to the rescue. Feeling emotional is normal. It helps you convey your inner feeling of disappointment, anger and fear. In order to deal with this complicated emotions of yours, you are advised to relax and breathe deeply. The next step is to learn to identify the specific emotion that you are feeling. If anger is one of them then take control of your anger first. Try to respond to your emotions one at a time. Then spend the time to meditate. Meditation is effective to calm your mood by improving your positive emotions.
Fast heartbeats, gasping for more breaths, and mild stomach upset are the most known feelings of anxiety. These reactions came from your brain in order for you to make a response. You can handle anxiety by not over analyzing the situation. Let the problem remains as it is. Do not think for a solution right away by repeatedly searching some answers to your questions from the internet because the response that you will find there might only mislead you. Anxiety won’t go easily, the more you want to get rid of it the more it will stick to you. By doing the opposite which is to embrace this undesirable feeling after being diagnosed with STD, the more you can cope up with this feeling.
This is a common reaction to all transgender after being informed of a positive STD test result. You will feel unclean and unworthy to be loved. You are ashamed for contacting such a disease and you are considering of distancing yourself to your partner or opting of blaming your partner instead. In order to make you feel worthy and whole again the first thing to do is to accept the result. Then talk to your partner if you have, then finally find a support system from those who experienced the same problem as yours. Do not isolate yourself because you are not alone.
STD is not as harmful as you think nowadays. You may feel apprehensive and worried upon knowing that you have it but you must also know that there is a medical intervention that manages it. The unpleasant thing to do is when you ignore and delay its intervention as your way of self-denial and wait for the worse to come. So do not keep the disease to yourself. Ask for help.
