Dear Friends ... I never knew I had HPV until I was diagnosed with cancer. I feel shameful and am having a hard time dealing with my shame and sense of "causing" this in someway. My husband (second husband) loves me unconditionally, however I'm having a hard time with accepting myself right now. Can you share your feelings and your experience? I find I don't even want to tell people I have "anal" cancer...I say "rectal or colon cancer". Help me get my mind around this and get to a place of more acceptance. All advice and input welcome. Thanks so much ...
