****trigger warning**** So I have struggles with self harm

****trigger warning****
So I have struggles with self harm for many years now. I just found out I have HPV and I honestly feel so hopeless. I want to scream and punch things and pull my hair iut, cut my skin open. Anything to just make everything go away but it's not that simple. At all. I don't know what to do anymore....

@northzn thing is, I'm not an adult. I'm only 16 and I was already struggling with anxiety, depression, and ptsd. Now I have this and I can't help being so alone. I feel like I changed so much from the person I used to be a couple months ago. That me wouldn't have made a mistake that cost me an entirely new life or worrying and regretting

my bad, but if it makes you feel any better the statistic actually applies to anyone sexually active, that includes teens. Believe me, it's not a big deal (I have HPV too) and you will realize that too over time. Since you are younger it may take a little bit longer but you will get there. As I got older I realized that life has many many worse things in live than HPV (i'm not saying it's a good thing but it certainly wont ruin your life). Just to give you an example my ex-gf stopped taking the pill on purpose and now is using our newborn child to drain everything from me and abuse me emotionally... believe me when I say this situation made me forget completely about HPV and put everything in perspective. You have your entire life ahead of you and HPV will not stop you from enjoying it. Maybe today this may sound like a generic cheering attempt but this is the truth.

@northzn I have only just joined this group and honestly just from this support that I'm getting on here makes me feel so much better. I actually had a pretty good day. I thought it was going to be cap but once I went to work, everyone cheered me up without realizing it. I'm glad my coworkers are as nice as they are, otherwise I'd be in a rougher spot. Right now I was feeling like relapsing on self harm but instead I went on here and it helps a lot so thank you, your words help me more than you know
