I just finished reading an article on another site where a girl out on a week long femme vacation switched back to drab because she needed to go buy a razor and I had to give a little giggle. Having been on regular electrolysis for almost a year I know that there is no way around having some days where you just can’t shave in prep for the next appointment. The first few time s I had to do this I was not living full time so it was no big deal, but half way through the year I had deal with being femm and having beard growth. After all this is going to take 3 yrs or more I’m told. Fortunately I have my own office so I could just hide out there and minimize my exposure, but eventually there are needs to be out more publicly including the 5 block walk down Main Street twice daily. Eventually I figure out a foundation and bronzer combination that mostly hid it, but up close in the mirror it looked horrifying. So I found my self trying to keep as much distance as i could. Then my boss decided that every morning his team needed to huddle in his office. I ended up begging my electrologist to fit me into her Saturday schedule so the worst day was a day off. Now its just Fridays that are uncomfortable, but through time I’ve found that unless someone gets up and close to me they cant tell that I have a couple days growth, which by the way gets to be shorter and shorter. The funny part is, I see women who have more facial hair than me now. I know some of them are just as uncomfortable as me and I feel sympathetic pangs of anxiety.
