What do you do when you feel overwhelmed by HS?

Today I looked down at one of my HS wounds and some skin is hanging off of it. I broke down in tears today because it can be extremely hard to be present in that reality. When these moments come up for you, what do you do?

  1. When I feel overwhelmed, I do my best to stay present in the moment. I used to run to some very unhealthy vices. I learned processing my feelings and being present in them also helps with healing from HS because it's not only a physical battle but its a mental one as well.
