The Paratriathlete Diaries: Sweat and Tears

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.
