5 STARS so far....Had my first appointment at a nationally recognized hospital that made me feel like 15 years of weight has been lifted. No, I'm not suddenly lesion/ abscess free. But what I am is renewed to feel warm & welcome from the moment i walked (ran) in the door (Late cuz of traffic & nervous as hell btw). Given speedy directions from lobby to 9th floor to Clinic. Greeted by the intake staff sweetly 16mins late as if I was early, didn't have time to get the coffee or tea she offered before getting called back. So detailed, so thorough, so interested & patient, listening & asking questions the jerk ass docs of the past would never. Of I forgot the detailed packet of vulvar conditions & management I got as I was initially greeted as mentioned before. Thorough & compassionate & still interested & engaged and asking they questions I don't mention cuz what Dr ever cared before. Every single moment of the hour and half the two physicians consulted and inquired about my quality of life & expectations, respecting that I'm not trying to be cut all up & don't want surgery to be thrown around as if the only option & being positive and caring of my dislikeand fears of doctors in General (which I mentioned repeatedly:/) then the Conclusion, a consultation about the approach they felt I'd be most comfortable (doxycycline & BC) neither of which I've tried & the birth control I was previously denied by my pcp because she's a .....Anywho, she also recommended zinc gluconate 50mg twice daily & asked if I'd like to speak with the sex therapist regarding any concerns. As I tried to get my hands on some coffee during a short interlude I was wisked away,after two yummy sips to room with a gorgeous View (sew pic) to what I expected to be brief to a detailed, Frank and complex funny conversation with a very down to earth and open minded sex therapist who gave me (who thinks she's excellent & skilled at what I do despite my diagnosis) tips and tricks I hadn't thought of and I'm faaaar from prude. Overall it was something I really can't put into words but was utterly compelled to share this with anyone, women especially who have felt down & out, sad, confused, embarrassed, ashamed, pained by hidradenitis. I'm thirty single and have no kids but I honestly in my heart & soul feel more beautiful, exceptional and free than I have in my entire life and that's my God's honest truth. I feel anew and ready to start my life :*)
