I am new to this whole support group thing but it's great to be on here and know that I am not the only person suffering with HS. I was hesitant to join because for me it was like admitting that I actually have it. Well I do and I've been suffering for about 8 years now and I just turned 21. It can be the most depressing thing having all these scars and not knowing what to do about them and being so self consious about how I look and smell. after tonight I could care less about how many scars I have but the thing that frustrates me the most is the pain. I just had a really bad one that hurt like nothing else and the only thing I could think of was why do I have to go through this at 3 in the morning holding my breast up and not being able to do anything else but let the thing drain. It was super painful! Whenever I think about this disease I think of how I'll never be able to find someone who would accept this, but I don't care anymore the only thing I am worried about is not being in pain. I feel like there is always some kind of hope even when it seems really bad. I went to a new doctor today for the first time in about 3 years about this and so far she's given me a little hope that I will be able to control this better. I am just tired of the pain. It's so much more comforting knowing that I am not the only person suffering.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
