For many years I starting becoming more upset with myself and my appearance. It got to a point where I was upset when looking at myself in a mirror. I was so embarrassed I didn’t want to talk to anyone about it.
The problems included excessive hair growth on my neck - all the way around, and very thick in the back - hair in and ON my nose, and very visible - hair all the way to the top of my cheek bones that extends lightly right up to my forehead leaving no hairless area between my eyes and normal hairline - hair in other places, as well.
I began by shaving, then moved to waxing some (neck, mainly). To add to the problem I am very underweight and am extremely upset about that as well. I’m 5’11’’ and weigh 120 pounds - always been small and eat like a pig.
Sadly, I know I’m an attractive guy under all this. I used to sing with a popular rock band as my career. I had a girlfriend, I loved very much for 11 years. I’m 29 and at one time I had it all going for me.
I eventually gave up my band because I became too humiliated to be seen in public. I couldn’t look someone in the eye, and still can’t.
I started laser treatments and have gone to 5 so far, I think. There has been a bit of success in the neck area, but none on my nose. It’s as if that whip of the elastic was for nothing - and all those tears (like being punched in the nose:)!
They have told me they can’t do anything for my cheeks.
Now I am starting to also see hair in and on my ears. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
I’m losing faith in this laser treatment and am desparate for advice. I recently broke up with my girlfriend because I felt she simply didn’t love me anymore. I can’t remember the last time we really kissed.
Being single, I am eagerly seeking advice on treatments and options, so that I may someday look someone in the eyes again.
Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the woe is me ramble - I just need to be normal again.
