Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on July 11, 2019

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough."- Member of myHSteam

Members of myHSteam experience the burden of hidradenitis suppurativa physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of HS. Other times, we experience relief and support from others who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my pain anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with HS has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." - Member of myHSteam

Here are recent conversations from members on myHSteam:

"I am proud of myself for once I managed to walk a mile and a half and didn't pass out."

"It's so beautiful outside! And because of the scars I have, it's hard to see myself in a swimsuit!"

"I'm glad I'm not alone. My doc made me feel awful about myself because I'm overweight."
