I'm an 18 year old girl that was just recently diagnosed with genital warts. I feel like my life is over, and that this is the end of the world. I feel disgusting and dirty all the time. Some days the warts are all that I think about. I hate not being able to shower without looking down and seeing warts down there. I don't know who I could have gotten them from, which is very stressful also. I've been with more than one person in the last 6 months. Part of me feels as though this is my punishment for being promiscuous in my teenage years.. Now I wish so badly that I could take it all back. They keep spreading, which I'm sure is because I shave my pubic hair, but I can't stand having hair down there. I know that it probably isn't good but I used regular wart remover to try and freeze them off, but so far no luck. My doctor gave me a cream (I don't remember the name, but it was a 5% something) to use twice a week but I seem to have lost it in the move up to college. I'm going to go to the pharmacy and get my refill tomorrow, so hopefully I see an improvement when I start that. I just wish this would go away. I feel like it's all a bad dream. Any helpful or positive comments will be appreciated. It's nice to read things and know that I'm not alone. I will be sure to keep you all updated!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
