Training involves sweating. Sometimes not training involves sweating too – as sweatiness is pretty common for folks with EDS (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome). So when my online grocery shop gave me the option of getting a 2-for-1 on a new variety of my deodorant of choice, of course I took it (and clicked twice). I was super excited as I love Mitchum. Bye bye sweat!
Behold. Mitchum Ultimate.
Also known as a nightmare for this paratriathlete.
See that cute little green dial on the bottom?
I cannot turn it.
Try as I might, I just don’t have the grip strength to do it.
So I ask my husband. I Insert tweezers to try to get better leverage to turn the dial. And I struggle.
And I sweat.
Alas. The struggles are real.
