Thank you for participating in Stand Together for Hyperhidrosis, my theme this year for Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month.
If you missed all the videos of Jess from the UK, my special guest for the month of November, make sure you’re following me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so you don’t miss any other hyperhidrosis news. In the meantime, here’s a recap of all the things this brave little lady had to say. You might need to turn up the volume quite a bit (sorry for the technical difficulties).
I am grateful for many things this month; one of them is you. Thank you for joining me here for a conversation I never thought I’d be leading. 💦
Hyperhidrosis is under-recognized and under-treated, but talking about it like Jess did can help advance awareness. Using our sweaty voices might just be the bravest thing we’ll ever do. And when we speak up, we find others who have it, too. You are not alone, and there is always hope that one day we will have a cure for excessive sweating. Until then, I am grateful for all of you who follow my hyperhidrosis blog and social media and have the courage to interact with and leave comments for me.
If you’re one of my silent followers who don’t like, follow or comment on any of my posts for fear your sweaty secret will be outed, I see you, too. You matter. 💙
Hyperhidrosis makes us imperfect, and I’m glad. Perfection is overrated, and there’s no such thing as perfect anyway. Our sweaty condition can make us feel different, cast out from society, embarrassed or ashamed. The choice is yours whether you decide to allow those feelings to turn into thoughts that play on a loop in your head.
