I Wanted to be a HAWT Divorcee…..


I'm 56 years old, and I suffered from the facial/chest perspiration since my teens. A little excessive, but bearable and not so frequent. Then I had a hysterectomy at 29, and was told I would be thrust into the joys of menopause as a result. Well my temp began to rise , and more frequently, but I was sidetracked by the ridiculous facial hair. Through all this time I paid attention to my appearance,  never left the house without the face and hair done. My divorce came at 39, and I thought I would eventually get back “out there”, but first I had to fight Hodgkin's for 14 months. Oddly the sweating stopped during that time, but returned with a fury about the same time my hair did! It got so bad and so frequent my hair would be drenched, make-up running down to my knee socks, shirts wringing wet. A virtual waterfall will be cascading down my face. I haven't been able to keep makeup on for 4 or 5 years now. Doc says it wouldn't be hot flashes but he offers nothing else. I was thrilled to find this site, I'm for sure finding a dermatologist and making an appt. I can't imagine doing too many more Ohio winters with the A/C on. I'll post again after I make that appt!
