Hyperhidrosis Stories Matter: One to be selected for a PROFESSIONAL Recording & Archived in NEW IHhS AUDIO Library
If you have hyperhidrosis, it’s likely a part of your story.
During Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month 2018, the International Hyperhidrosis Society's (IHhS') invited excessive sweating sufferers to contribute to a collection of permanent, uncensored and unscripted hyperhidrosis stories: stories from all walks of life that illustrate the significance, diversity and impact of hyperhidrosis. This was not about treatments, publicity or research; this was (and is) about building compassionate connections as a hyperhidrosis family and reinforcing empathy for generations to come.
After we review all the submissions, a representative #MyHhStory will be selected to be the inaugural entry in the new IHhS AUDIO library and archived in the Library of Congress – forever – because, with 4.8% of the population affected by excessive sweating, the Hh story needs to be honored, documented and shared.
The contributor of our lead story, and a companion storyteller of their choice — someone who can somehow participate in the #MyHhStory-telling — will travel to meet with the International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHhS) and record their story live in a conversational interview. Recording will occur during the first quarter of 2019. Travel and accommodations will be provided by IHhS.
The interview will be the first entry in IHhS' new audio library and archived in the Library of Congress so that future generations can learn about hyperhidrosis and its impact. The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world with more than 167 million items on approximately 838 miles of bookshelves. It's home to the most comprehensive record of human creativity and knowledge and you can help us make sure that a hyperhidrosis story gets included!
