A Song That Made My Jaw Drop Open And Tears Billow Up In My Eyes! Somebody Understands!
HI! HS is nuts, crazy and something I think insurance companies/healthcare physicians should take more seriously than they do now. It seems like because it is so rare and people are so quiet about this it gets swept under rugs everywhere. In society today we are told that perfect skin is the way to go. I see a deodorant commercial about perfect underarms and I want to reach through the television and choke that person out, lol..I have had this condition since I have been around 8 (everywhere I read it says this only happens after puberty?) I am 36 now and it finally subsided a few years ago. I had it severely everywhere my skin touched my skin; between my legs, my groin, my butt cheeks (where I currently now have folliculitis), under my arms and under my breasts. I remember sitting in high school and feeling one burst under my arm, feeling it run down my side and then having to get up and just get out of the room. I was ashamed and I felt like I got my childhood ripped out from under me. I currently only have the scars, raised sinus tracks and the folliculitis on my butt and back of my legs. Skin problems never seem to go away! So anyway I was getting ready one morning listening to Pandora and I heard this song by Six AM called "Skin". Instantly I started to tear up and couldn't believe that an Artist would write about this, never had I imagined. I am sure it was about a girlfriend or someone who was burned or in an accident as HS is known to hardly anyone. I wanted to share this information as it is bittersweet and it felt good to relate to something "out there" maybe it can be the HS theme song! Also, I played this for my boyfriend who says "it's (HS Scars) not attractive but there is nothing you can do about it" and for some reason he didn't talk about it at all after the song was over. But I felt like the song explained what I couldn't. Hopefully I helped a few in this forum. If anyone listens to this song let me know what you think.. :) Maybe, one day, there will be something out there to fix our skin..Hugs to everyone!!!
