Dont Sweat the Little Stuff!

Just like everyone else Im a sweater. My sweating...

Just like everyone else Im a sweater. My sweating started 30+ years ago. Im 46, so this battle is hopefully come to an end! Ive read alot of reviews the past couple of weeks before having miradry done. Ive gotten to the point that leaving the house was so scary, that I had to make excuses to not go. Sweating rules your life to the point it makes you miserable. when I was 15 I remember being at a buddy's house, in the winter time ,and having to throw my shirt in the dryer. My pit stains where so bad that he said what the hell! I told him I had the flue and was sweating. My excuses ran to the extreme for my sweating. My shirts where so yellow that I have to buy new ones yearly. Wearing only black and baseball Jerseys was my addiction.
Taking extra shirts was the norm. I can sweat sitting in the air conditioning which makes me colder having sweat drip down my side. The smell, well you know, makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it. So fast forward to miradry! Its been 24 hours now and Im very optimistic. Just like everyone else you get a number of shots. A grid is placed over your pits and traced. Then the machine is put into action. I didnt feel a thing, except the shots. Now talking to my doctor we agreed to a level 4, since Im an extreme sweater. The procedure took 2.5 hours or so. He emphasized ice! ice! ice! After leaving he gave me two more packs for the ride home, which was an hour. I had already put 4 water bottles at the ready for home, when I arrived. Now the numbing effect lasted a few hours. The procedure was done at 4pm by 9 or so it was wearing off. It felt like being sunburnt, the night sleeping was a little uncomfy, you just have to find the right position. Now in the morning I could not put my arms to my side. Kind of felt like a body builder, with arms out to the side. By 4 or 5 pm the swelling has gone done considerably. Absolutely no pain just feels weird, a little itchy but passes.  By the way its 70 today and went all day with no sweat or oder at all. typically I would be soaked on my second shirt for the night, and washing my pits in the bathroom sink. Even though its day one Im very happy to have this life changing procedure done. By the way Im planning 30+ years of catching up on the things I have missed! God Bless.

Today is great!

Can you wear a grey shirt? When its 82 degrees out? I CAN! Today is hot outside, decided to test the grey shirt. Now any day I would NOT wear grey at all, but decided to try it out. Needless to say absolutely no sweat, no oder, no anything. I cant explain the freedom miradry has done for me! Last night I went through all my shirts for the upcoming summer, use to be just black, and no muscle shirts. Now its mostly grey and muscle shirts. As youvcan see in my attached picture of my grey shirt, that Ive had on all day, no sweat marks at all! Yesterday i wore a muscle shirt all day, was a little apprehensive, but all worked out. in the past I would have been sweating down my side to my shorts, and stunk. I keep feeling my pits for wetness but there is none! Feels like I should be drenched but there is never anything at all. As far as the swelling its mostly gone now. Had this done friday, now its monday. I can leave the house with anything on now, crazy right? I have put my arms up so many times today in front of people, that its going to be a bad habit to break!
