I wear rings every day. Usually, I wear my class ring from college- a classy one that gets a lot of comments from people.
You already know that HH causes my hands to swell to the point where I need to get a ring size larger than normal for my fingers.
What you don’t know is what happens when people want to look at my rings.
Many times, people will grab my hand and start admiring my ring.
With HH, this is highly uncomfortable. I don’t want them to notice my sweaty hands so I immediately take my ring off and hand it over to them to look at.
Anyway, I’m getting older…and one day I will hopefully be engaged and have a ring on my finger. Many women love when their engagement ring is looked at and show it off. Many friends and family don’t even ask to look at the ring, they just grab the Bride-to-Be’s hand to “ooh and ahh”.
This is going to suck for me. I don’t even know how I will handle it. I’m not going to take the ring off for the person to look at. This might be fine for other rings, but not an engagement ring.
Don’t get me wrong…I still want a ring. I’m a pretty traditional person when it comes to weddings. I am just imagining some uncomfortable situations in my future.
It’s sad that I need to think of this. Being engaged should be nothing but happy. It shouldn’t be awkward and uncomfortable.
Anyway, thanks for reading!

Update: almost 2 years later, I’m happy to say that successful treatments of Iontophoresis has helped my fear of this 🙂
