Hidradenitis Suppurativa

I probably spelt that wrong. Oh well.

So anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis will have picked up on the fact that there haven't been many posts recently. It wasn't so much as my laziness that explains it but the fact that I've been ill and the title explains it. And the the post will explain this.

I haven't been officially diagnosed yet but that is what the doctors suspect I have. It's a disease that results in chronic and recurring boils under the skin that progresses and is quite painful. It tends to flare up at time and since November, I've been getting them pretty bad. And with a busy college schedule, this blog has had to take a back seat.

I started getting these boils soon after I got my first period and found myself getting new ones as time went on. Most of them would vanish after a week or two and some of them would burst and leak pus and blood. Fortunately, that stuff doesn't smell bad so I know it isn't an infection.

I've gone through some pretty awful flare ups over time and it's very painful but doctors seem to be reluctant to give me painkillers. They assume paracetamol will do the trick but it doesn't. I've been in so much pain at times that I've seriously wanted to just die.

It's incurable and difficult to treat. Surgery helps get rid of them in some areas but they can come back which sucks.

I won't specify where I get them but they have pretty much ruined my life and I often have to cancel events and stuff because I can't get out of bed.

I hope that there will be a cure one day but if there isn't then I just hope that I can soon find respite. And since it can be passed on to children, I think I'll be adopting. There isn't anything wrong with adopting and I will adopt some children but I only worry that I may get pregnant one day and since I don't believe in abortion unless in extreme scenarios, I worry that I may cause pain to my future child.

But for now, I guess I have to just deal with it. It also means I get to read a lot since I'm stuck at home for a few days every month or two.

But yeah, this is why I've not updated. It's not that I've forgotten.

To add to my health problems though, I've just found a bump like a balloon on my back. 2011 has not been a good year for me has it?

  1. Oh Kamille that sounds awful! I really hope they find something to help you!

    I'm thinking I will adopt too, but not for health reasons. There are just so many kids already out there, I might as well get one of them :)

  2. *HUGS* That's horrible! I'm so sorry you have to deal with something like this. I can easily see how the pain of it would get in the way of regular life. I'll hope along with you that a cure is discovered someday, since no one should have to put up with such pain....

  3. @ Kelley. Thanks. I really hope so too!

    I know. I don't understand why people want so many of their own kids when we already have a large number of them who desperately need a home and live in the most horrible conditions imaginable.

    @ Heather. Thanks! *hugs back* The sad thing is that a lot of my cousins and one of my brothers has the same condition.

  4. My gosh I am so sorry to hear this! Health problems are so difficult to deal with, and it sounds like you have really suffered. I'm amazed that you are still able to keep a blog, keep at your writing, and go to school. That shows such admirable persistence. Be well and get better soon.

  10. Hello everyone out there, I'm here to give my testimony about a herbalist doctor who helped me. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2011, I went to many hospitals to heal myself but there was no solution, so I was thinking how I can get a solution so that my body can be well. One day I was in the river thinking about where I can go to get a solution. so a lady walked towards me telling me why I'm so sad and I open everything by telling her my problem, she told me she could help me, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medicines to cure the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS and gave me your email, so I sent you an email. He told me everything I had to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed correctly. Before I knew what was happening after two weeks, the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS that was in my body disappeared. therefore, if you also have a broken heart and need help, you can also send an email to {oliha.miraclemedicine@gmail.com}or whatsapp him number: +2349038382931 or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/drolihamiraclemedicine/
