Studies have shown that the more we take ownership of our condition, the more engaged we are in maintaining behaviors that help us live better. An important factor in having the confidence to take this ownership is self-trust.
"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers." - Member of MyHyperhidrosisTeam
"When I was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if my doctor said something incorrect or wrong for my body. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up." - Member of MyHyperhidrosisTeam
Here are some conversations about trust on MyHyperhidrosisTeam:
• "Your doc blaming it on your weight is totally out of order. It's a medical condition and you have a right to be treated for it same as any other condition. Go back to your doc and be very persistent that you want to be medicated for it as it is your legal right. Do not take no for an answer."
