My Battle Again

This is now April 2022.. My Dermatologist dismissed me from her treating me for Hidradenitis Suppurativa. I felt alone again with this battle that is now raging through my body now as weekly flares of at least 5 to 7 new painful breakouts.. I am only getting around 4 hours of sleep per night now. My anxiety and depression is just so hard to manage as well. I realize that we must the right path for our journey.. I am still trying to love myself again.. I believe that beauty comes from inside as well as outside. I just don't feel like I have a handle on this junction yet.. I believe that we have roadblocks and hidden roads to find. Yet we all have different flares in which we suffer from..

"We are strong"

I know that we are strong and beautiful, brave and humble and scared.. We must stay strong the best we can. I do believe that we still should love our skin and who we are. My battle is to keep strong and let the pain be unbreakable to my life. Every battle is a hard battle we must continue to battle to be HS warriors.. My battle is within myself to understand I am not alone yes scared and in pain. I will battle as much as I can to overcome my weakness with every flare I have.. Our battles will be easy to battle once we have the right medical team on board with us.. We are strong..
