Beginner's Mind - Not Knowing It All When Living With Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Posted on July 03, 2019



"The complexities of this condition make me want to read everyone's comments as I learn more and more. The truth is I know enough not to realize how very little I know."

"The more I learn about HS, the more I realize that it's not my fault."
