If I could say anything to a fellow HS hero who was struggling I’d say to take it easy.  HS can be difficult at times and it takes time for some wounds to heal.

In your darkest moments, it's hard to remember the best ones. If you're asking why you, first ask yourself if you wondered the same whenever something really good happened?

I would like to do things all the time without having to sometimes cancel plans. I try to stay positive by taking some self-care days 3 times a week and listening to music.

"A positive experience I’ve had that was related to my HS was when I met with other HS patients my own age and it was a beautiful experience of learning and sharing."

Kim

Hello, my name is Kim and I’m a runner. On Sunday October 17, 2021 I ran the Scotiabank half marathon. My goal was to bring awareness to my community of family and friends about HS, and to collect any donation amount to help HS Heroes in providing further education and awareness as well.

Once upon a time, I felt like I was so alone, but have since realized there is a whole community of support and knowledge. It's not going to happen overnight, and it will take some time, but keep your head up!
