Anger and embarrassment are some of the emotions that I went through when I first learned that I had developed genital warts. They changed to some degree over time whenever the genital warts recurred, and on some level I learned to accept everything that was happening to me, but that took some time. To a great extent it was a high learning curve and I had to learn to cope with what I was going through, and understand what I was feeling, before I could completely accept everything.
I freely admit that I wasn’t strong enough to have done that on my own and it was only through the staunch support of my partner and support group that I arrived at the point I am now. And that point, is where I can put down in writing without embarrassment the fact that I suffered from recurrent genital warts for many years.
Anger often comes to our aid when we need it the most, when we need to feel like we’re in control of lives when the world is falling down around our ears. Anger is also one of the first emotions that we will feel when confronted with anything that is not within the bounds of our control. If something happens to upset the ordered world we live in, if something happens which will put the fear of the devil in us, anger is the foremost emotion that you will find yourself experiencing.
Anger can come in the form of anger at your situation; anger at yourself; anger at your partner; anger at the person who might have passed genital warts on to you; or anger at the loss of control over your life. And although anger can be a cleansing emotion, if it’s not tempered and if you don’t go to the root cause of your anger you could be denying what’s staring you in the face. This in turn can male it more difficult for you to accept the situation and get a better handle on genital warts to receive the treatment you need.
Embarrassment due to genital warts can be a strong motive for many people to stay away from anything even remotely resembling a doctor’s office, but it’s something that you should try and overcome. If you suspect that you might have genital warts you might not want to see your normal family physician as you might have known them since you were a baby in swaddling clothes and you would feel too embarrassed to do so.
In this case you might want to take the option of taking the demon that is the genital warts to one of the many clinics that are specially designed to help people with sexually transmitted diseases. At these clinics you can maintain your anonymity and still get the help that you need. There’s also no denying that sometimes the impersonal friendliness of someone who doesn’t know you from Adam, or Eve, can be just what you need.
