Hi everyone, I am Tanya and I'm new to the group. After dealing with HS for 20 years on my own I thought it was high time I joined some people that know how I feel. For years I hid my spots that's what my loved ones and I call them. Then I finally told my mom about them when they got too bad for me to walk. Now I have reached stage 3 and can no longer hide any of them. For years I was so embarrassed to tell anyone because they look at me like I am dirty and contagious. Now I am at the point where I just don't care what others think. This weeks has been rather bad as I have 5 spots in my groin area that just won't seem to go away. The largest one was the size of a baseball. I have recently been back to the doctor to see about being put on some kind of pain medicine. I was denied. I went to a surgeon to see about surgery. He put me on 6 weeks of antibiotic. What a joke. I am tired of having to explain this disease to my doctors and tired of the looks like I'm a pillhead when I ask for something to take the edge off. I am getting breakouts on the back of my neck now. Sometimes it's really hard to handle. Anyway I just thought I'd introduce myself to the group. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
