I have recently been diagnosed with HPV at 21 years old. I don’t know how to feel, ashamed mostly. I’m just lost in it all. Does life ever return to normal after this and will it ever go away?

It might not go away, but hun, it isn't the end of the world. How are you doing, how can I help support you? I know it seems like the worst thing possible, but it isn't. It is a medical condition, nothing more. It is nothing to be ashamed of.

I just have no way to know what is coming next, it's so scary to me. It almost makes me not want to be intimate with anyone. If I pursue a relationship with someone how do I tell them of the diagnosis without being frowned upon and seeming like I'm gross? It was horrible because I got it from someone i was married to. Plus outbreaks frighten me, how do I even handle those?
