I stumbled upon this site accidently while looking into hair removal creams.
For many years I’ve had unwanted facial hair. No one else in my family seems to have this problem and I rarely discussed it with my mother. The only thing she ever said to me was when I had enough money saved, I should get electrolysis…and that was many years ago.
I am too embarrassed. …and like many others, I am petrified of having to go into a hospital and having my facial hair grow out. I think that alone would kill me, nevermind what I might be in there for.
I’ve been shaving for as long as I can remember…probably since it started in my late teens (I think). I’m 38 now. I’ve never had a boyfriend and am so self-conscious…thinking that no guy would want a woman who’d need to use his razor! I feel like a freak of nature.
Then I found this site (just today) and realized that there are so many other people like me who are struggling with this problem. And while I take some comfort in that, I also know that everyone is on their own personal journey where this is concerned. I’m still gonna freak about going into a hospital…and I’m still gonna feel that no man would find me attractive. I can’t help that.
I just wanted to say thank you, Andrea (I believe this is your site?)…for creating a place where we all (woman AND men) could come to deal with this problem. Bless you.
