Life With Hs *

I've had hs for 14 plus years. It's only has worsened over the years.  It's a serious disease and it's really hard to get doctors to listen. I have seen so many doctors over the years and spent a great amount of money with nothing to show for it. I am past the point of worry about the scars, what matters to me the most is the pain get's  in the way of normal day to day activities. I am married , 31 years old with two children 7 and 4. In jan. 2009 I had surgery on my left armpit because the arm was infected for months.The pain  is what people don't understand and I have learned to appreciate the days that the pain is some what under control. I have accepted the disease and now I am seeing a pain management doctor- pain med's along with rest with a heating pad { moist heat} during  big infection out breaks helps. I have the later stages of the disease {hs}
