Friendships and HS (Part 3)
Last updated: March 2022
In this video, Katy and Gwen continue the discussion on friendships and HS. Katy has had hidradenitis suppurativa for 19 years and Katy and Gwen have been friends for 16 of those years.
Katy asks Gwen how she would encourage someone with HS to open up to their family members or friends if they are feeling nervous. Gwen’s advice includes picking someone trustworthy, setting expectations for the conversation, and opening up about daily experiences with HS to make it relatable.
