This poem is from one of our members, makes me smile every time I read it…Hits hyperhidrosis right on the head.
Hope you enjoy.
A poem called S.W.E.A.T.Y.
Sweatybettys and sweatyberts,
We have one thing in common, our sweat glands ‘squirt’!,
Each and every one of us, sopping wet with sweat,
Afflicted and uncomfortable, it makes us fret,
Thus we fight on for a cure that’s new, and
Yearn for the day we won’t constantly say “Phew”!

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a skin disease which produces a lot of unhappiness. It is estimated by the medical profession that 2-3% of people all around the world suffer from excessive sweating. Non-medically speaking, the figure could easily be far, far higher. In our experience, many people only find out they have Hyperhidrosis because they stumble across the name of it by accident. Many people don’t want to bother their doctor because they think it’s ‘just them’. There are many reasons why people can go throughout life and never mention it to anybody.

Welcome to Very Sweaty Betty (VSB)
We are a small group of normal people who just happen to sweat a lot. We’re not alone – millions of people worldwide suffer from this acutely embarrassing and socially isolating condition, but, because of the negativity and misconceptions surrounding sweating and being sweaty, they attempt to keep it to themselves and suffer in silence. As with all taboo issues, it only takes a few like-minded people to get together to blow a taboo wide apart and tell it how it really is. Hence www.verysweatybetty.com was born. We are committed to raising awareness of Hyperhidrosis and dispel the stigma and ignorance surrounding sweat and sweating.
We are setting up lots of new things, but if you want to get involved in the meantime, you can still use the forum as before, just click the FORUM link above in the menu – it’s full of great info and great people all helping each other!!
This is Anne filming her first documentary for RAW TV – This brought the VSB team together – read about it in the ‘About VSB’ section above.Tags: anne, documentary, embarrassing, forum, get involved, help each other, ignorance, millions, misconception, normal, suffer, suffer in silence, sweat a lot, taboo, tell it how it is, very sweaty betty, vsb
