I know the title sounds so serious, but chill. It's just a title.
Well, this is my 4th entry of Being Me and yes I was being diagnosed with Hyperhidrosis since I was standard 4.
But what is it? Do you know?
|Illustration on point!|
Basically, this is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. The word “hyperhidrosis” means too much (hyper) sweating (hidrosis).
Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary. People who have hyperhidrosis, however, sweat when the body does not need cooling.
Many people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. Most often, they sweat from their palms, feet, underarms, or head. While the rest of the body remains dry.
And for real, I'm typing and my hand is sweating on this keyboard and mouse right now. But, it's not every time, just when it is a hot day, I tend to sweat more especially my palm and foot. And sometime, at one stage, my shoe will get wet and it looks like I just went to the toilet. Serious! This is based on the true story. Fuh.. can you imagine that.
Then when I encounter people, surely they must give a shake hands, then I am the one who was like an idiot, drying my hands on my trouser or jeans.
And then, back to my life in standard 6. My mom insisted on bringing a handkerchief during UPSR so that I can put it under my hand to avoid the papers from my sweat. Some of my friends even laughed at me. Sad life T^T
There is 2 type of Hyperhidrosis which are the primary and secondary stage. I'm in the primary stage which is not severely bad. The secondary stage is more to diabetes, obesity or frostbite, but I am not any of them. I just sweat more than others.
and one more, when I get back from my daily jogging, my friend was like
"Are you taking bath or what?"
"Is it raining?"
and I was like....=="
Being diagnosed with Hyperhidrosis was not easy dude. but I still thanks God because of giving me an opportunity of life.
Do you have anything to handle like this? Share it in the comment dude!
Let's embrace ourselves together.
See you in the funny paper!
