That awful moment
When you reach to shake my hand
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I can’t express how thankful I am for this organization! I have felt alone all my life dealing with palmar and plantar hyperhydrosis. No one understands how drastically this impacts my every day life and self esteem. Thank you for helping me feel less alone in dealing with this challenge.
So thankful to have found these stories
Started crying instantly as soon as Melissa said “you can just be sitting on the couch watching TV and be sweating.” I’ve had to deal with sweaty hands, feet and underarms since my teenage years. Now, at 32, I’m just now realizing how much it has affected my life. Looking forward to finally searching out long term solutions.
