Abnormal PAP

So my last PAP came back "abnormal" and I have a colposcopy scheduled for next week. I am attempting to not be in constant freak out mode, but any words of wisdom and advice and calmness would be really appreciated. I had a moment of "I'm a young woman with a husband and two kids and I need to be around for everything I can't have cancer I can't die OMGOMG" in the bathroom a few minutes ago, even though I know that abnormal PAPs are normal (ha) and it's likely everything is, actually, fine. Anxiety sucks, as a side point. I am also trying to figure out if it's possible I have HPV - I was not tested for it, so I don't know for sure, but if both my husband and I have never had oral sex or PIV with anyone but each other, is there even a way for me to have gotten HPV? What is the difference between HPV and non-HPV cervical abnormalities, if any?

Thank you!
