:cry: Ive got to the stage in my life now when i have to insist that someone takes my condition (+ feelings) seriously. I started having my legs waxed at 18, my beautician suggested going on a combined pill, she said it helped, so i did, but it didn't! I spent all my 'courting' years, shaving every day (and sometimes night too) so my partner didn't realise i was hairy. in the final stage of pregnancy with my son, i became excessively hairy on my face, the doctor said it was an increase of m,ale hormones and it shoudl calm down, that was 14 years ago, im now 44, divorced and i dont socialise at all, i thought i controlled the hair on my chin well, until people at work started talking about it and last xmas, my boss (who is lovely) got a bit drunk and felt under my chin and asked if 'it' itched and did i shave or pluck? i was mortified as i'd only plucked the hairs a couple of hours earlier, but there are some i cant get as they grow under the skin and i have to 'dig' them out with tweezers causing bleeding and redness. I had a test patch done on my leg with a laser machine a couple of years ago, it caused much discomfort and scarring for a few weeks, and although the results were pleasing, the massive expense and also not being able to pluck the hairs, having to let them grow in metween treatments would be too much to bare. I have been on my own for nearly 2 years, i had a date a few weeks ago, but afterwards, i received a text message saying that i was not what he expected and he told a friend that he could not go out with someone who could gorw a better beard than him, so now there is no way i'll consider entering into a relationship or even dating again. From a distance and in passing, i get a lot of attention from men who say that i dont look any older than 30, even my son in law when he first saw me, thought i was my daughters sister, it's just a shame that doctors dont want to be bothered with people in my situation and that controlled therapy is either painfull and/or unbelievably expensive - im a single parent and struggle to keep my house and family comfortable, so even if i could put up with hair regrowth during laser sessions, i couldn't afford treatment anyway.
