So since going public with my trip over the last day or so, I have encountered the kindest and coolest bunch of people from all over the nation (and beyond). Throughout the Hidradenitis Suppurativa community I have had people come forward already offering to meet up with me, to donate to me and help me with supplies, to give me a place to sleep and eat in their homes, and even people offering to walk part of the way with me.
The reception and support I’ve already been offered this soon, my feet not even hitting the pavement yet, is super touching. I just really want to take a moment to thank all of you. You all are awesome!
