I’m 36 years young, engaged to a beautiful woman who’m I love to pieces, I’ve no offspring to speak of, even though I would love to be a Dad some day, I do have a golden retriever called ronny (as in Cristiano Ronaldo – formerly of Man Utd). I’m a sports and fitness freak (as my Fiancee tells me), and I’m probably the biggest Manchester United fan you’re ever likely to meet. I’m originally from Manchester in the UK (hence the obsession with the Red Devils!) but I moved to San Francisco (Bay Area) when I was 23 to take on a job in Photography. I miss home even with the weather, and would love to move back one day.
***Update: I’ve now moved to back to Manchester for the next 18 months.***
I’ve suffered from excessive sweating for as long as I can remember. I didn’t realise what I was struggling with until I came across a work colleague (now my best friend) who was suffering from the same symptoms as me. For all those years I just thought it was me and that I was…well, basically a freak! It’s kind of hard to really shake something like that off, and I’m just lucky that I know someone else who suffers from the same thing that I’m able to remind myself that I’m just another guy who suffers from hyperhidrosis.
I hid my condition well throughout my life, as my parents, friends, or family didn’t have a single idea that I had this problem. Living with something like excessive sweating you just adapt to it, in my case I became a finely tuned sweat hiding machine!! Any situation that was thrown at me, I had the know how of how to conceal it. Obviously I couldn’t keep this up 24/7, in some instances I failed to hide it well enough, and suffered the embarrassment which I tried so hard to avoid.
Until recently I think the only other people I’ve told about this (apart from my best friend) are my fiancee and my golden retriever! Sad I know, and it’s not something that I’m particularly proud of either! Not letting close friends and loved ones know about this condition sooner has done my relationships with them no justice whatsoever. I didn’t want to feel the embarrassment or to be looked at differently I guess. If you’re suffering from excessive sweating then maybe you know just how I feel.
The site is aimed at striking hyperhidrosis right where it hurts from a birds eye view of the condition. I’ve been coping all my life with it, and I’ve been through a tunnel of emotions, coming out the other end with a great understanding of how best to tackle it and get on with the rest of my life. This site is now my second job, hence some of the ads you shall see as well as product recommendations scattered around the site. Don’t worry I don’t recommend any topical treatment that I haven’t personally tried myself and all recommendations are based solely on helping you better cope with hyperhidrosis. Don’t for a moment think that any of these recommendations are any less sincere because of the monetary reward involved. I put a lot of time into this site and I produce well researched and factual articles as a result.
You may also see some adsense ads placed on the site, these are by no means endorsed by me in anyway whatsoever. They are dynamically produced based on what content any particular article shows and aren’t under my control.
This site as well as being my part time job has provided me with a kind of emotional box, everything I’ve felt or feeling is intertwined within this website somewhere. I just hope it truly helps you as much!
Thanks for visiting, and please do get in touch with me if you are a sufferer of hyperhidrosis. We’re all in this one together, remember that!
