Here’s the thing – I have some sort of syndrome/issue. Every freaking time I get caught off guard/someone comes into my office/I have to talk to a group of people unexpectedly/etc. – I turned PURPLE/RED and immediately start SWEATING! It has nothing to do with being embarrassed or hot or even shy – its some sort of “red-sweatitis” – I think that’s the medical term. It’s seriously starting to get RULL old.
For example (and I have a million) – take today. My work crush came into my office to just “say hi” and chat. The second I turned around and saw him in my doorway – this was me…
And here’s the thing – I wasn’t embarrassed at ALL to talk to him. I was not hot - I was actually quite comfortable with the room temperature. So why was this happening?!? And the more that I thought about it – the worse it got. And then I was even more awkward. I wasn’t even doing anything weird when he walked in – I was actually working! So while we were chatting – I could feel the flushness going down and my sweating was coming to a halt. I tried as best I could to just carry on a normal conversation and interaction. But the damage was done. I was/am MORT.TI.FIED. that this happens when he catches me off gaurd. I had seen him the day before in the kitchen, when I walked in, and nothing – no problems. What is wrong with me?!
I think the main cause is when I get caught off guard. When I know I’m going to see him, or know that I have to give a speech – I’m totally fine. Calm, cool & collected. Well that might be exaggerating a bit – but you get the point. It’s just awful though. I mean the sweating is bad enough – but my whole face turns red and it travels down my neck! Atrocious! It’s just so obvious and out there!
So my question to all of you – is anyone with me?! Am I in this alone?! And if you know what I’m going through/suffer from red-sweatitis – do you have any advice?! HELP ME!!
