Hi guys, I know I seemed to annoy a few of the members by posting my off loads in relation to my depression and HH but I'm here to ask for some advice. Over the past few month I've been MASSIVELY depressed and I frequently spend my nights crying to myself at my current predicament.

I know we're all in the same boat here, but I really feel that some people are stronger than others in relation to dealing with these medicial conditions/ailments. I'm not afraid to admit that I am a timid, weak person. I'm wondering if any of you lot have suffered similar feelings? More importantly, is there anything which you have done which has improved your situation?

I feel like my HH of my palms is my main burden, if I get this sorted I will feel like a weight has been lifted. I have an ionto machine but never stuck it out as I didn't see great results. My main issue seems to be that I have a fear that I'll die alone and childless because of this condition. Thanks for your help.

As much as I feel your pain and have enough family and friends with mental illness, can we not go through this again with you. As suggested numerous times by myself and others, please seek professional help. This isn't fair that you are putting us through your mental crisis yet again. HH in of itself sucks, but many of us lead normal lives. You are young. Do something about it now before your life really goes to sh*t.

I'm sorry Sprawling, I really don't mean to push this on you guys... but I really don't know what to do. This is the only place I can vent my feelings without being shunned. I'm sorry.

You vented many times here. How much more advice can you expect from us? We are not here to help you with these deep seated emotional issues. Please, find a group that can help you. HH is secondary to all your problems. PLEASE JUST STOP ON HERE. At least for now, try the social anxiety section. I mean no disrespect or harm to you. I would just like to see you get the proper care with the proper group.

I'm 17 and I understand what you mean. I spend long hours in seclusion inside my room (because of my sweaty palms) and it really depresses me because i cant do things normal people do i.e. drive, go to the movies, play video games with friends etc. The only time I come out is at night when temps drop to 28 degrees. What depresses me the most is that I wasn't born with hyperhydrosis.

If you cut off ones hands there is a good chance of compensatory sweating, not to mention the increased phantom sweating.

This is my first post here, ive just been looking through a little. I'm 22 years old, would say i have serve hyperhidrosis on my palms and feet and moderate on my underarms. I've pretty much been through it all expect for ETS surgery.

I was just looking at a few of your mosts englishman, and i do understand where your coming from. Obviously you can't stop thinking, feeling in despair, no real answers etc. Ive had hyperhidrosis for as long as i can remember, i used to be just like you as well, feeling in despair, constantly depressed, angry so many emotions regarding the condition. Thoughts of suicide, went through it all and sometimes still do. But to this day i can actually say I'm kinda glad(well content) i have/had hyperdhidrosis, it made me the person i am today.

I noticed in one of your religious threads you stated, why would god do this to me? and not make us equal etc.. well i am actually an atheist now. But i sometimes used to ask myself this same question. What got me through was just appreciating life, you may think this is bad, but as you open your mind and learn you will see there are many bad things out there and in reality's fact it really isn't that bad. Your alive and healthy, well fed, have people who love you, have opportunity. There are many people in this world who don't have these common things we take for granted. So in actual fact, your a very lucky person. Others on this forum, have said to you, that have had fulfilling lives with this condition, careers and families. So by no means is it impossible? You are who you are, everyone has there own problems, no one is perfect.

Probably thought it was weird i said i was kinda glad i had hyperhidrosis, ill elaborate. I believe it made me a much more caring person, opened me up to a career that i love which probably never would of considered. Made me more aware of my and others emotions and feelings. I don't like that i get sweaty sometimes, but i do like the person i am.

You say you have erecticle dyfunction to, and you smoke cannabis cant get motivated, despair, depressed, mental etc etc and this is all associated with your hyperhidrosis. Mate its just life, if you continually blame hyperhidrosis for all your problems you will be forever depressed i guarantee you. Can you honestly say you havent just been lazy sometimes? exercise best thing! helped me so much with my condition. Try it.

So mate i totally understand what your going through, but trust me its not just your sweaty hands and when you realize that you will actually be able to help yourself and condition then. I don't mean to downplay hyperdhidrosis at all, just don't let it be an excuse for wasting your life.

Great post RishRish and welcome to the forum! It is an attitude like yours that makes you stronger to overcome nearly anything life throws at you. You are so right about nobody being perfect. Even the hottest supermodels have quirks that they don't want others to know about.

Anyway, I wish you the best in your fight against perpetual perspiration.
