Yes, I know what you're going through and I completely understand how scared you are. Accepting this will be one of the hardest things you'll have to do. I was diagnosed last august, my doctor told me that the place where my warts were could not have been protected by a condom. I'm turning 19 in four days and I feel just as dirty and just as damaged. There are days where I hate the world for cursing me at such a young age, forcing me to grow up so fast. It gets better, you can live life, I'm sure by now you've noticed that you can have this virus and still have fun days. You never forget about the diagnosis but you can't let HPV scare you from life. You are functional, you can get over it. You will have bad days but HPV is making you a stronger person. Asking for help on a forum like this means you're taking the right steps. You're not alone and just because you have this virus doesn't mean you're a branded ****. It means you now have an extra guard to find the people who love and respect you for who you are and what you will become in spite of what you have.
