My Hyperhidrosis Advocacy
Since my nomination in the 2018 awards, my puddle of hyperhidrosis hope and awareness has grown larger. I’ve been recognized for hyperhidrosis advocacy (directly or indirectly) in the following ways:
- I filmed a commercial for Carpe Lotion for sweaty hands and feet
- I was the on-camera talent in a patient perspective video with Pharmacy Times CE for a continuing medical education (CME) activity on hyperhidrosis
- I spoke on stage for the second time at the Women For One Pacific Northwest Truthteller Tour, giving my hyperhidrosis the back seat so I could talk about my ulcerative colitis and mental health story. Hands down (sweaty, of course) this was the bravest thing I’ve ever done.
- I opened my blog to the larger hyperhidrosis community worldwide and now accept guest posts. I have sweaty stories from people around the world, and I am so grateful to be making these kinds of connections. Welcome to the sweaty tribe!
- I was a guest on the following podcasts:
- 52 Phenomenal Women Project with Amy Boyle Photography
- Guest on Pamela Jessen’s blog There Is Always Hope
- Interview with Wicked Sheets CEO Alli Truttmann
- Interview with Everyday Health – 8 Wardrobe Tips for People With Hyperhidrosis
- Health Central – It Gets Better: 10 People Living With Ulcerative Colitis Share Words of Wisdom
- Clara Health’s Breakthrough Crew
