Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that causes a person to sweat excessively. It can occur on its own as a condition, but abnormally increased sweating can also be a symptom of illness or a side effect of medication. Regardless of the cause, constantly being overheated and sweaty for seemingly no good reason can be incredibly frustrating and embarrassing.

Despite the annoyance of having to change your clothes several times a day, or constantly wiping drips of sweat off your body, sometimes finding a little humor in frustrating or awkward situations can go a long way. Cracking a joke is usually my go-to when I start sweating profusely in public – especially in those situations where literally no one else is sweating – but laughter can also be healing and help me feel less alone in the struggle.

If humor helps you cope with excessive sweating, you may enjoy the following memes.
