I totally understand your fear. I remember being 13 - 14 & not understanding why I was getting these “spots” and why I was so different from all the other girls. I thought I was alone. And really my mom made them seem completely normal. A huge majority of the population has experienced having a boil. But I experienced them on such a frequent basis, I knew it wasn’t normal. But I dealt with it alone out of embarrassment. When I was a teen it was not commonly known AT all. Doctors thought nothing of it because they didn’t even know. Please, I’m sincerely begging you to not hide this. Even if you feel embarrassed look up HS and if you can’t talk about it with her, show her the resources online. Look up all the info you can and present it to her. Especially how hard it is on the self esteem Because that’s the hardest part in my opinion. You are not alone. The earlier you seek treatment for it, the better. Show the doctor what you think it is so they can research it too if need be. But please don’t feel as though you can’t speak to anyone. I am here if you need someone. If you feel comfortable to come off anon we can talk more in the inbox. If not anon is good too ;) remember you aren’t this condition. You are beautiful ;) and your scars are just a reminder of how strong you are through all the pain.

“Sometimes people have to cry out all their tears to make room for a heart full of smiles.”
Well, yes, ma’am, I do… I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

If you follow me and you’ve never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then this is me telling you to make the life decision to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
#this show took some turns down some suspect alleys along the way but #as manifestos go the ‘shared power’ theme running through this scene TAKES SOME F*CKING BEATNG #a giant ‘screw you’ to the Batman-esque Saviour complex running though most dude-focussed superhero franchises #’it’s me and only me who must save the helpless!’ vs ‘HERE TAKE THIS - AND USE IT TO SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS’ #you don’t hide power and hoard power and swoop in to impose your power on others to ‘save’ them #you share it #you teach it #’are you ready to be strong?’ #[i’m not crying YOU’RE crying] (via harrietvane)
My favourite Buffy scene ever. Just this gif set makes me feel so proud and emotional.
In short, there’s really no point to anything, but sometimes you get to eat candy or have sex, and that’s when it all feels right.
