How to deal with hidradenitis suppurativa

I was diagnosed with stage 3 hidradenitis 6 years ago and I'm in constant pain I get no relief even though I am on pain meds. I have clusters of forming abscesses and open wounds in my groin on my bum under my arms and on my breasts. I'm constantly depressed because of the pain and the appearance of the scars and the forming abscesses. I have had more than 17 surgeries to drain or remove clusters and nothing seems to help. I'm wondering how to deal with the frustration, pain and depression that's comes with having this disease.
