I Just Found Out

I found out that I have HPV about a week or 2 ago. I'm 18 years old and really struggling with it. I know it's not my fault or anything, but just knowing that I'll have it for the rest of my life or until there's a vaccine or something is really hard to deal with. My mom and boyfriend are both very supportive of me, which REALLY helps. But after I found out, I've been a lot more emotional and easily frusterated and irratated, and I've been crying a lot more over little things, too. I don't know if it's because I'm just trying to deal with the fact that I have genital warts or what, but it's not easy.

I can empathize. But, from my research
and from talking with a dr., I learned
that it is indeed likely that after
treated, HPV can leave the body within
two years. I thought once a virus,
always a virus, but not necessarily!
If 80% of people have this, you'd be
weird if you didn't right? ;)

man im going through the same thing ,
i have never cryed so much in my life,
but kate is right the longer you go
with out outbrakes the less likely it
is to pass it on to someone, cheer up
man, it does get better!!

SO sorry to hear. I've been recently
diagnosed and although I haven't been
crying I've just been completely
depressed and feel like I'm in a bad
dream taht I can't wake up from. Not
a day goes by that I don't think about
it a few times or more. I'm so much
more sensitive now than I used to be
and get depressed really easily. I
hope things change for you and for

I too have it and I have become
paranoid about other diseases even
though I know I do not have any of
them. I have been depressed, crying,
not wanting to go to college or
anything just laying on the couch.
ya'll make me feel better, to know that
it happens to the best of us.

Im 18 and i just found out that i have
this std, and im really depressed about
it. I think about it everday and i
dont feel good about my self. i feel
as if im dirty and wont be able to
enjoy life without thinking about it.
Ive never heard of it leaving your

that or maybe even info about how to
prevent out breaks? i just dont want
