everybody has secrets

do you ever look up at the sky & wonder if someone you know is looking up at the sky at the same exact time as you? or why some places put oranges in your ice tea instead of lemons? or how about the days when you have absolutely nothing to do but yet you're having the best hair day ever? or i know, i know those days when you actually have money to spend at the mall & can't find anything & the days you have no money everywhere you look you see something cute?!?!?!?! 

i know, you're probably thinking okay Kelly those are some totally random thoughts....but that's okay because today is the very first day of Random Wednesday hosted by Shanna of Because Shanna Said So....& today anything goes

so in honor of Shanna's new linkup & it being an anything goes type of day I thought I would take 
advantage of the randomness & share a little random secret about myself......

this is something that I have had to deal with since I can remember...so like forever. I hate it. It's gross. I'm embarrassed of it......& really as I write this I don't know why I'm telling you this but......


I have sweaty hands. 

& no I don't mean your occasional it's hot out & my hands are sweating a little......& no I don't mean 'omg I'm nervous & my hands are sweating'....

I mean full blown, water dripping, slippy slimy, puddle making sweaty hands.

I know. Disgusting.

Of course I have looked into getting it fixed but do you want to hear the awful procedure of fixing the sweat!?....well they take a ton of little needles & shoot your veins with botox to stop the sweat. I hear it is SO painful...so yeah i'll be skipping that
so I have been living with it forever & I guess will always be.....& you might not realize how much of an effect sweaty hands can have on your life. Let me just clue you in on a few of the downsides of sweaty hands 

no these are not my hands....& this would be a good day in sweaty hands land
You can't high five - Because most of the time the sweat will bounce off of the high five & land somewhere on someone's skin 

You can't hand shake - Because when you shake hands - the hand shook will be all wet & slimy causing them to look at their hand with a look of disgust, look at you with a look of 'what the hell is on your hands' & then continue to wipe their hands on their pants while asking why are your hands all wet causing complete & utter embarrassment for you....& seriously people this happens all the time. Hence why I hate 'hand shaking' 
& 'high fiving'  

Writing on paper is hard - When you go to write, at least with me, the hand holding the pen - part of it is touching the paper, so while I am writing, the constant pressure of my hand on the paper to turn wet & soggy and then eventually rip. You have no idea how many times this would happen to me in school with tests....especially 'scantron' tests. I would have to let my test air dry before handing it in I was so embarrassed

See what I mean  - hand on paper
You have to carry around a mini wash cloth - Well you don't have too but I do because it is so uncomfortable to be anywhere & just have your hands start sweating .....the sweat is literally dripping off your hands making a puddle...I mean what are you suppose to do?! So I take out my mini wash cloth & hold it & let it absorb all the sweat. Really though, it doesn't last long. The sweat comes back.....

It always comes back. 

ok i think that is enough randomness for today. I think we have all heard enough about my sweaty hands.....I hope I didn't gross you out too much......but don't we all feel a little bit more closer now?

OMG seriously think I just read all about my life! I have the same problem and have had it all my life as well. Seriously embarrassing and seriously not fun! In fact my hands are a sweaty mess as I type this! I have looked into the botox as well but don't think that will ever happen! You have no idea how nice it is to know I am not the only one who has this!!

Helene said...

hahahaha, i get sweaty hands too. And I am linking up today too!! thanks for letting me know!

Better to have sweaty hands than sweaty armpits!!!!! At least you don't have germs because your hands are always washed!!! Just looking on the bright side of things. Oh and I have sweaty head syndrome. Pretty sexy if you ask me!

Shelley said...

Oh my gosh that would be so sucky. I'm sorry!!

Unknown said...

We definitely all have those things we would rather others not know but most of us don't have the confidence to put it out there. So kudos to you for sharing with us! :)

Unknown said...

I was at a conference a few months ago and I met this incredibly successful man and I put out my hand.. and he said I'm sorry but I can't shake hands and went straight into a compliment without a second breath. Later in conversation he told me he had chronic sweaty hands. He wasn't at all ashamed of it and said well.. so I don't shake hands. It wasn't awkward at all.

Unknown said...

hahah, oh how I love you kelly! Your sincere honesty is refreshing as always :) My guy used to be so nervous of his "sweaty hands" when we first started dating... but the longer we've been together the less of an issue it is.
I promise you will hold hands one day :)

Because Shanna Said So said...

Really? Kelly, that is crazy...I mean I guess it's better than sweaty arm pits....those show through your clothes...at least you can wipe your hands...trying to look on the bright side ya know?? :) I can't thank you enough for all of your love and support for my link up! You rock my world!! xoxo

Chelsea Olivia said...

At least they don't stink haha! Props to you for being brutally honest, love that about you. Everyone has their odd quirks and nobody is perfect (even though you have the most perfect legs ever, ugh haha). My eczema is pretty disgusting when it flares up but whatevs, gotta deal with it! Go you!

Carissa has sweaty hands too. Not out of control but def always clammy!

My-cliffnotes said...

At least they're always clean! I totally feel closer! It doesn't change a thing I'd still hold your hand!

Hey Kelly! You should try drysol... I used to have insanely sweaty armpits... like ridiculously, as in have to always wear a sweatshirt over everything kind of sweat and the drysol completely fixed it. (I had to buy it from Canada, but I'm pretty sure you can find it online) I'll use it for like a week and it lasts (stops sweat) for like a year. And it says on there that it can also be used on hands and feet! I'd say it's worth a shot... sweating for no reason is such a horrible feeling!


Nicole said...

Although my problem isn't as bad as yours, I get sweaty knees, especially in the summer time. Like, enough to soak through my jeans. It's super weird, but then again, we all have something weird to share :)

cynthia said...

Huh, botox? no thanks! :)
Thanks for telling us so when we meet one day I'll just hug you. ;)

Megan L. said...

OMG! I cannot imagine how annoying this must be. I have heard of that treatment before. I assume it'd have to be done on a semi-regular basis as well. No other options. No medicines/ointments/creams?
Thank you for sharing!!! Don't be embarrassed. We definitely ALL have secrets.

I know all about this because my son has this. I have four kids and he is the only one who has it, so it's something either you have or you don't (it's his feet, also.) I believe it goes along with having a good metabolism and being slim, so there's a bright spot, right? And it's very true that we all have our own quirks... I have panic attacks/anxiety that can prevent me from doing things; when that happens I can't really eat... and I have acne which is mostly hidden except on close inspection... hmm... I guess none of us would truly want to trade problems once we learned all about the problems of others, right? ;o) And I saw that you can go days without washing hair? Mine gets oily after ONE day. :o/

I just LOVE your blog, you seriously always keep it real! I know what you mean, I hate my hands when I get so nervous and I get so embarrassed

ugg if you find a solution let me know!

Molly said...

me too! so miserable! once you have babies, though, carrying them is a good towel. :)

Holly said...

OMG, you poor thing! I can't even imagine something like that, and UGH for the only solution to be so painful and, I'm sure, expensive! I'm so sorry, doll, but you're still beautiful inside and out :) xoxo

Unknown said...

Following you via Bloglovin'. Visiting from Yours Truly!

Unknown said...

Found you through Yours Truly! Can't wait to get to know you better.

Tess @ AModernSuburbanitesLife said...

oh man. thats a hard secret to admit. I have a juicy one that I've kept in for some 7-8 years. maybe one day i'll tell it. ps. I wore my hair 3 days without washing, which was the longest ever for me, and all I could think of was 'hashtag embrace the mess' lol. I'd say that's some good branding on your part missy! thanks for the inspiration!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

Haha I agree with the first anonymous comment who said it is better than sweaty arm pits!

Janna Renee said...

That sounds like such a hassle! Sorry boo. We all have to have some challenges to keep us grounded ;)

Hyperhidrosis.... i have had it as long as I can remember and now my 7 yr old daughter has it. It pretty much sucks.

Anonymous said...

That's crazy. I've never had to deal with that so I can only imagine how annoying that must be. This is probably something you'll say 'been there, done that' to, but have you tried usin talcum powder or baby powder on them, to try to absorb something?
