I’ve posted a few threads here and there trying to help people and trying to help myself. At times I look at myself and think that there is no way I can get rid of this hair. It seems like I’m stuck with it. I guess that’s how most people feel before they begin treatment. But it has a huge effect on my social life and my social life is dependent upon this dastardly problem I create in my head. I’ve talked to several people I’ve met through here who have gotten rid of their hair or who are almost done. Maybe I just feel so skeptic because I haven’t began.
There is lots of talk about laser and I had five treatments done. There are people with success stories but the problem I found was that this is not universal. They say the hair does not come back…well they can’t say that to me. And what hair dissappeared could not be predicted and I ended up with patches. I guess the trade off from that is that it grew back. What would really be nice to have back is that $1375 I spent. The lower part of my neck and upper part of my chest was bare on two different occasions and grew back both times. From there I thought it was all over. The folks at www.consumerbeware.com bash electrolysis and praise LHR consistently but I found little hard evidence to back their assertions nor did I trust them.
I’ve been researching electrology a lot and I’m convinved that this is my route, my hope. I just want this gone, thats all. Sometimes I get scared that it won’t work on me, it will all come back once I’m done, or that I will be left with tons of pitting on my skin. I guess I can only combat that skepticism by plunging in one day. I would start with electrology right now as we speak but I am not going to be in one place consistently for the next year so that would make it impossible. Next January though, watch out.
Tell me I am not alone!
