Hello everyone. I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this but little by little I’m telling family and friends about my diagnosis. I’ve been getting a lot of “oh that’s no big deal, you’ll beat it no problem” Or “I know so and so who had HPV and beat it” I try to explain its not HPV but cancer… there is a difference and when I say I’m actually HPV negative they act like they don’t believe me. Not all cervical cancer is HPV related…sigh. I’m trying to believe they are reacting this way to reassure me that all will be ok, but it comes off more often as if they are minimizing what I’m going through or just don’t care.
