I Lost the Worlds Second Best Wife

We could be friends, but… It was as if all the dominoes inside of me that had been …

The Truth Behind My HPV Diagnosis And How It Turned My Life Into Unnecessary Chaos

Amy Horton Updated September 22, 2019 By God & Man I stared at the doctor unblinkingly. It was a mistake—I had to have heard her wrong. Even as the thought flitted through my mind, I knew I hadn’t. It didn’t look like a textbook case of genital warts. I’d only noticed a few small, persistent bumps that refused to go away. Even when my Pap smear came back abnormal and the clinic informed me that I may very well have contracted HPV, it didn’t occur to me that I had the strain that also caused those bumps. I felt dirty and ashamed. Though the outbreak didn’t look like anything much, I felt the specific heaviness that goes along with the …

Whereas in previous generations, you would likely run the risk of bumping into the person you went on one date with and never spoke to again, nowadays you can delete an app …
