Meet my hero! This picture was taken this morning after a surgery I had for a genetic disorder called hyperhidrosis. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing surgeon and have a successful surgery. Today I have overcame this genetic disorder after 10 grueling years of this condition. This is a rare disorder with only 5% of the population as carriers and only 1-3% affected. This has affected my life socially, physically, and mentally. It has made relationships, social situation, and everyday routines much harder. I have never felt happier, braver, and more confident.
If anyone knows of anyone with this disorder please let them know there is hope! I am so thankful for Dr. Reisfeld and the surgical center at Beverly Hills and for my family and friends that have gave me all their support. I am also very thankful to have such a wonderful sister that has taken great care of me during my recovery.
