HPV and Pre Cancer. Dealing With It. Giving Others Support.
I found out I had HPV shorty after my daughter was born when I called to schedule my appointment for my IUD. The nurse told me that I had HPV and I called my mom in tears. They scheduled a coloscopy and I had a friend go with me. I lost my insurance before the results came back with pre cancerous cells on my cervix. I remember thinking I'm only 20 yrs old how the hell is this happening. I'm now trying to get back on my insurance before it turns into cancer and spreads. I know theres nothing I can do about it so I try not to dwell to much though its hard. I can guarantee my daughter will be getting the vaccine on her 9th birthday. I never want her going through this and I now know how common it is. Right now the only thing I can do is try to live a happy life for the sake of my children and husband. I don't want my kids living with this cloud over their heads. I use to think I was invisible cause I was young. What a rude awakening I recieved that day.
I want young girls to know that HPV is not a death sentence. You can live a full life with it. It doesn't make you nasty, or bad, it makes you human, and you have to remember that ITS OKAY TO BE HUMAN. Don't hold your head down in shame. Women with HPV need to ban together and fight this disease. Don't let it destroy you.
