I have had "bad cells" removed too. Cary's right, if found early, most abnormal cells and cervical cancer can be treated. Being at high-risk for developing the condition is not a death sentence. At least I hope it's not, I have been treated three times for precancerous cells on my cervix. I had a LEEP, a colposcopy, and cone biopsy. I have luckily not had a recurrence since last being treated in 2004 or 2005 (can't remember which). I was very scared about the word "cancer" too. It's OK to be scared and a little depressed, but like Cary said, if it goes on too long, you may want to talk with your doctor about it, and/or join a support group (maybe even a couple Groups on EmpowHER!), to get you headed in the right frame of mind again.
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
