I NEED YOUR HELP! This is a serious issue. I can laugh all I want, but it is really just to make myself feel better.
With all the stressful situations in my world right now, I have developed a problem I haven’t had in nearly a decade”¦SWEATY, SMELLY PITS. I can normally get through my work day without feeling like I smell like a pig, but the moment I get home all hell breaks loose. Or when I am at work and something unexpected comes up, I will start to smell then. I think we can all see why this is a problem, but just in case you can’t read between the lines”¦I DON’T WANT TO BE A FUNKY BRIDE! Yes, read that sentence with an attitude and a black girl neck role. (It’s OK for me to say “black girl” because I am black”¦who am I kidding, it’s funny as hell.) I just can’t do it! I don’t want to go around raising my arms and being offensive!
Before this problem, I saw articles citing research saying that stress sweat smells worse than normal sweat. Before I didn’t believe them. Before I laughed in the face of stress and threw my arms high to the sky and twirled for the world to smell. Well, now I am getting comments from Papa Scooter that I should look at doing something about it. Even Mr. Scooter has suggested that I use his deodorant.
I am currently using Secret, but she isn’t good at keeping them. So I am thinking maybe Degree. When I used to have this problem I had prescription strength, and I used clinical protection for a while. I thought I had it all under control, so I started using regular deodorant. Surprise surprise, that has gotten me nowhere.
What should I do? Which clinical protection is better, Degree or Secret? Would powder help this situation?
