I got diagnosed with HPV a few weeks ago and now I'm in my worst depressive state ever.

I can't seem to get to grips with the fact that it is permanent (yeah, in some cases your body can eradicate it but that's not always the case). I feel physically sick whenever I think about it, I can't seem to find anyway around it. My thoughts are always, 'it's fine, it will pass' and then I realise, no, it won't.
I feel genuinely disgusting, like it makes me worry that if my partner decides to leave me in the future, no one will ever love me again. Like, who on earth would voluntarily get an STI? Even if someone did, I would feel AWFUL for giving it to them, knowing that they may feel as horrible as I feel now. Please, I'm begging for some help with this. I really don't know how many more negative thoughts I can take.

@dopaminex your very positive. We each have a story and sharing removes those feelings of isolation. Keep your head up.

I have the same thoughts and feelings you are sharing. They are largely based on an unreasonable stigma. The current medical prognosis never suggests this disease is disgusting or warrants abstinence. Medical science does suggest the virus persists after symptoms resolve, much like the other 100s of thousands of viruses that infect human beings. That said there is no logical reason to fret outside the irrational stigma we've created, and can mend. Talk to loved ones. Get a dialog going with you medical providers and see a therapist if possible. Go on dates, and talk about this. Open and honest dialogue will reframe these irrational and depressing thoughts you are having. Before you know it things will adjust to a positive light. You got this!
