This is My Story

Hyperhidrosis has been in my life for as long as I can remember. Even though I have learned to cope with it in time, it never stopped affecting my confidence. Once I found out this was my genetic footprint, I had to adapt my behavior to my condition: from avoiding to wear a wide range of colors to avoiding handshakes or touching specific surfaces, from adding absorbent insoles to every new pair of shoes to not being able to write in school without resting my hand on blotting paper and from treating my itchy skin to explaining my condition to every new friend I got. No matter how creative I became, it never stopped being a burden.
