Uncured, Looking for a Cure – Hyperhidrosis
I am still uncured and looking for a hyperhidrosis cure!
Here’s my story (so far)…
I’m thirteen and just started eighth grade in August. (It’s now January 2009 for people reading this in the future : )
And for all of your information, i am typing on my ipod touch so i’m so sorry if the format isn’t proper or something.
On the first day of eighth grade i started sweating real badly. i ran home everyday just to rip off my shirt change into a tank top or an oversized shirt.
In my day i have tried alot of stuff. I cant imagine living with this for more than a few months. I have tried so many deodorants, baby powder, and so many other things.
I, unlike Josh and Christopher, have no one to “work” with. And this really sucks. I live in Arizona so its really unusual to where a jacket, and when I do, my sweat leaks through my jacket past my bra.
People have noticed this and i usually just end up saying screw you but this never really works.
Before i ever found out about hyperhidrosis i looked at my pits in the mirror and simply could not figured out what was wrong with them. i wear deodorant i thought, but this obviously dosent work.
So i googled “excess armpit sweat” and was in for a shocker. the first thing that came up was surgery and i am terrified of needles. i hated this even more.
i heard certain dry was a good deodorant so one day i went to the store (my mom doesnt know i have hyperhidrosis, should i tell her?) and got certain dri. This did not work at all.
And that’s where my story ends, i bought certain dri a couple weeks ago and now i have no idea what to do. i was thinking about getting drysol but heard it’s over the counter, do i need a parent to do this?
The end. Once again im soo sorry this story thing looks like crap. i try, really.
This website is real cool and has a lot of information about hyperhidrosis, i really wanna get the ebook, but i dont have a credit card so a parent would have to buy it, and im not quite sure i want my mom to know quite yet.
Thanks so much for reading this if you got this far(:
