    just diagnosed with HPV
    An_249685 posted:
    I was just diagnosed with HPV yesterday. Of course I freaked out and cried. I looked up everything I could on it and also called my cousin, who is a doctor. I felt a little better after finding out it is nothing like AIDS or something. But I am still so ashamed and disappointed with myself. I don't want anyone feeling sorry for me, and I trust that the Lord will get me through all of these tests. But I just can't shake the disappointed feeling. Anyone else feel or have felt that way?

    I am not really familiar with HPV but one I can tell you is that God said he will not give us something that we cannot handle and will give us a way out. Hold onto your belief in the Lord and ask him to give you a piece agout this.

    God Bless you and keep us informed by letting us know how things go by replying to your post .
