Just wanted to write how I'm feeling down and really to tell someone other than my Husband that I have HS. I haven't shared this with anyone other than him and that is only because I have had to (if you know what I mean). I initially only had HS on my buttocks which started when I was pregnant with my first daughter 13 years ago, I hid this quite well, even from my husband for some time. I now suffer not only on my buttocks but on my breasts, under my breasts, under my arms, and groin. I feel disgusting most of the time. Over the last four years I have had acne on my face too, I am 31 now and had never suffered with acne before! I was told it was HS a year ago! This only happened because my GP sent me to the hospital as I had a 'lump' about the size of a strawberry on my groin that was painful to say the least, I could hardly walk! I now have two children, my six year old loves to cuddle me and squeeze me tight which to be quite honest can be really painful at times, but what can I say? She once saw my buttocks as I was getting out of the bath and said 'oh mummy I think you've got chicken pox' I pretended not to hear her and cried in private. I hate it! My husband is quite good really and avoids the subject which suits me fine however the effectionate pat on the bum as he passes me can sometimes bring tears to my eyes. Does anyone else feel that this is their fault? What have I done to deserve this? I know it's not life threatening and I should be grateful for what I have and I am truly, but sometimes the pain is awful, as I have it in so many areas sometimes I can't sit (without discomfort/pain)) I can't lift my arms (without discomfort/pain). Well, thank you for reading this and listening to me rant I actually feel better for writing it and when I'm feeling a little better about myself I will write again.
