Face Lift

For the blog that is. Just a tweak. No surgery for me my friend. You don't pin up your skin when you are only 24. Then you wouldn't have anything to look forward to. Kidding, I'm kidding. Don't freak out on me. Actually the only surgery I think about saving up for is to stop the hyperhidrosis. That's right, I have a gland problem. My hands and feet are pretty much always clammy and it's been like that for as long as I can remember. It does make you very self conscious especially when you frequently meet new people in a business setting. I know my clients assume I'm nervous when I have cold, moist, hands but that isn't the case. I can't help it. Even if I carry around a towel it won't make a difference. I've dealt with it pretty well so far, no breakdowns or anything, but I can't help thinking about what it would be like if I were normal. I occasionally reconsider the surgery. Maybe once a year I start reading about it again. Honestly, it scares me. What they do in a nutshell: they put you under, enter through your armpit, collapse your lung, and cut or burn a nerve. This has a lot of possible side effects. My uncle had the surgery (by the way this is one of those lovely genetic things) several years ago. He said that the sweating just moved from hands and feet alone to a brand new awkward area. Yeah, um, no thanks. It can also make me sick since that is how my body currently gets rid of toxins. They wouldn't know where to go for awhile. I guess I'll just have to live with moist socks and gloves. *Wipes hands on pants.*

That's okay, most people will probably think that you just came out of a restroom that has one of those hand dryers that blows warm air but never gets your hands dry. ;-)

I guarantee that having warm sweaty hands is no better. I am always warm. I hate it!
