Hirutism

Hi, New here

After reading alot, I think I may have this condition. I have been dealing w/ the hair for 35 yrs. (I'm 47 now). I am so glad that I am not the only one out there and I just want to put my 2 cents in. About 3 months ago I told my dh that I just couldnt keep up w/ the shaving anymore and wasn't going to continue. Nair burned my skin, waxing is the equivalent to torture in my eyes, and with the amount of hair that I have, I would have the win the lotto to have laser/electroysis done.

I cannot tell you how empowered I feel, it's like a weight has been lifted off my chest-honestly. I refuse to hide in long sleeves and pants. (altho when I go out w/ my dh, I do wear long pants/skirts). My dh is very supportive because he saw what I went thru when I shaved. I literally had to do contortions to get to certain areas-I can't do that any longer due to a foot problem.

I will also say that I live in Florida, and I wear shorts when I ride to school w/ my kids. No one has said anything straight to me, and even if they did I don't mind telling them about it. If they give me attitude, I will give it right back. I figure that it someone else can walk around with a physical or gentic defect than why can't I? I mean really.

So have courage gals, we've got far more important things to worry about(like the current state of our country for one) .then the amount of hair we have on our body.
