IamA Sufferer of Hyperhidrosis (I sweat too much!) Looking to spread some awareness of this 'silent disability.' Ask Me Anything!
My short bio:
My word this is scary! However, as the title says, I sweat constantly, mainly on my: hands, feet, underarms and back. While I live a perfectly healthy lifestyle, my body has decided that sweating is what it likes to do best, 24/7.
I myself am perfectly accepting of my situation, and as you can see in my 'proof' I have preventative treatments for this otherwise incurable condition. However, as I mentioned in the title, some see the condition as a 'silent disability.'
Imagine a life where you are too afraid to shake hands, to give a high five, or in some cases even write on standard paper. That fear makes things worse for sufferers, and the vicious cycle repeats.
There are many out there who hide away from social activities, purely because of the judgments of others. I myself suffered through school, however at the age of 22 I now find myself the moderator of /r/hyperhidrosis, hopefully helping others in the same situation as myself.
So feel free to ask me anything! :D

Edit 2: It has been requested that I add this link for 'The Thompson Tee Men's V-Neck Hydro-Shield Sweat Proof Technology Undershirt' Hope it helps a few of you guys and girls out! :D
Edit 3: It has also been pointed out to me that not all sweating issues are related to hyperhidrosis, so ideally see your doctor before you search out treatments!
