Talking to Others About HS

Telling your family, friends, intimate partners, workplace, school, or anyone else about your HS diagnosis and the challenges associated with living with a chronic condition can be scary. What are your fears? What are your triumphs? What advice would you give to your fellow HS warrior?

  1. I just tell. Most everyone I’ve told cares about my well-being. I’m not shy about it at all.

    1. Hey . So glad to hear this! I know it's not always easy for some folks. Do you have advice for those who might not be as forthcoming/comfortable with having these convos? We're interested to hear more of your thoughts. Thanks for being here. -Amylyn (Team Member)
