I am new here, and have joined in search of reassurance, help and a better understanding of what I discovered today.
This morning I woke up with a 'spring in my step'; so much to do, with a smile on my face. The post came and starring at me was a letter addressed to me. The letter looked rather official, so I quickly opened it assuming it would be (and hoping) nothing too serious. But BAM . . NHS Cervical Screening Result!I quickly skim read the letter, only to see the words ''Borderline Changes'', and positive result for HPV. I saw those words, and I immediately burst into tears. I didn't know who to talk to (still don't tbh), where to go, what to read, those words just starred back at me from the letter as the tears rolled down my face. I was planning on going a holiday middle of March for my birthday, but I don't know what to do for the best, since the waiting times for an appointment (Colopscopy) can take sometime. I haven't even told my Parents, as I know they will freak out especially as they live abroad! I just don't want to worry them unnecessarily.
Why have I written this? Well like everyone else here, really, just some clarity I guess, of what will be happening to me next. My head has felt foggy, fuzzy allday, leaving me unable to think properly.
Your responses would be much appreciated.
Thank you all in advance.
