Testosterone

First I preface this post with the confessing I have had nearly a bottle of red wine tonight, Rosso to be exact.....

Yes I'm writing about testosterone here.  I have too much testosterone in my system.  It goes along with going through menopause and the lessening of female hormones.  Today, I went to the Skin Care Institute yet again for another round of laser hair removal.  This was not on my legs or armpits or neither regions but on my face.  Yes, my moustache and chin hairs.  ARGHHHH!!!!!  My great grandmother had a very full white moustache, in fact a Fu Man Chu kind of thing going and I vow not to have that.  I have told my girls that if I die and they choose not to cremate me and people are looking at my body that they are to tweeze me or I will haunt them.  I hate this!  It is just not fair.  I have dealt with an abundance of hair on my legs, arms and brows most of my life to find that my hair is thinning and the chin and moustache are growing thick.  I have been several times now to get rid of the stuff and it is a little, well, it hurts sort of.  An hour before I arrive at the office I have to apply a numbing cream to my face, chin, lip and lower cheeks to prepare for the OUCH!  J calls me back and I lay on the table, don the protective glasses......excuse me...I digress................................lots of wine...............oh...don the protective glasses, and then we're off.  The little wand thing, (I don't look so imagine) begins the zapping...OUCH, OUCH..OUCH!  I am grinding my teeth so much that the thought of taking Advil crosses my mind.  Just as quickly as it started it was over.  Really it wasn't bad and the zapping/hurting was just as quick as the zap.  I made yet another appointment in another 6 weeks or the temporary pain and hopefully that will be the the last one.  Do you think the testosterone driven black hair on my face has given up the fight and retreats forever!  I do!

Oh my goodness! Ouch! I'm glad there is something you can do about the hair. Laser hair removal hasn't been around all that long. Also, glad there is something you can do for pain...wine! lol

funny that you mention this. I am on round 4 of laser treatments for my legs and pits. Hoping my 'stache doesn't get any darker or I'll have to get that done too. Right now it is fairly invisible - yay!

I have been bringing a book to keep my mind of things - which helps - a little

You may want to try it.

Ouch! That sounds painful. But I can so understand why you would endure it.
