Hey gals,

Being a new member I just want to say thanks again for all of the support. Every day I realize I'm on a long journey. Sometimes I feel like digging a big hole and jumping in. Ugg.......Anyway, I ran across this hair removal product called Finally Free. It uses Radio Technology. Approved by the FDA and it has a patten. All fine and dandy does it actually work? Feed back anyone?

Best wishes,

*******Jessica

I looked up reviews... it has a 1.1 out of 5 stars on Amazon, also being FDA cleared only means that it is safe... it doesn't mean it is effective (there are multiple levels of FDA approval). It appears to be a ripoff. As far as I know there are only 4 types of effective hair removal, Laser, IPL, electrolysis, and more recently ultrasonic (although very few places offer that in the US, and it is more costly and more time consuming than electrolysis so i don't see the point). Electrolysis is the only guaranteed way permanently *remove* hair.

Also there is only one laser machine FDA approved for "permanent hair *reduction*" and that is the cutera coolglide. I recently switched from a place using the soprano XL laser to the cutera coolglide and I can say from my experience that it is far more effective (the place is also cheaper, 175 for a full face session vs 200 at the old place)

Thanks jodie. My Endo is using that laser. YAY

      I feel for both of you. I worked 7 years 7pm-7am in the PICU and it wore me down and I ended up with severe depression.  I wasn't seeing daylight most days  Shift work is for the birds. I'm happy for both of you on your post op recoveries and happiness!  @Aurora I didn't realize how similar our hair is! Mine was that bright at your age but has lightened up a bit since then.  My goal is this woman's hair!  She's got some great pointers for our hair texture BTW.

      I've got one here that comes by to help out with the cat food.  Sometimes shows up in the middle of the day.  It gets up in the attic also.  If I'm out on the porch at night it come anyway, and just looks at me from time to time while eating.   I just gave up and named him/her Rorrie.   I was exposed to depleted uranium, which may have helped.  But I'm right on the edge income wise.   I would hate to loose it.  They've been good to me.

      Glad it's going well for you.

      Inspiration What inspires you today? I’m not sure myself what inspires me. OK, I’m trying to write stories about the only non-binary trans bi-gender person I know (don’t know). I’m trying to be inspired, but trying doesn’t seem to work. I don’t feel inspired yet. So I’m asking myself—and the only answer now is coming right here to TransPulse. Thank you, Davie

      I forgot, I can't upload a bmp file.

      Definitely @Bri2020, you'll really be filling that out.   Hugs!

      Sorry about your chickens. I don't know what got to them, but I know from personal experience that a raccoon can climb and squeeze through a tiny opening. I've been trying to get a mother and babies out of my basement for weeks now without hurting them. Finally yesterday the mother abandoned them and I was able to get the little ones to a shelter. The lady from Raccoon Ridge was thrilled to get them. 5 wk old baby raccoons.bmp

      I understand how you feel. We had good luck with our hens but our ducks and turkeys didn’t make it through the summer. This was when we live in the country a few years back. Those little dinosaurs were fun.

      You look comfy Shyla! I went thrifting last night with my wife, looking for "summer evening wear" to wear out to music in the park and happy hour kinda of things. I found three dresses. 1 is a maxi with spaghetti straps and slit side. It barely fits my chest so once I get my BA it will have to go but it looks great now. I also got a bodycon maxi in almost sheer black with a racer back strap set up.  Last but not least is the pre-sewn sarong pictured below.  I absolutely love it and it will accommodate my BA just fine ( I think I will look fab in it at that point although I'm feeling pretty fabulous in it right now!)

      @KymmieL thank you for that. I just failed in being open with my wife and couldn't get away from a life of hiding/lying and she called me on it. Your wife is right and I'm glad you were up to the challenge. I hope I am able to overcome my weakness before losing someone extremely important to me.

      Liz I'm sorry about the chickens. Predators are highly motivated and can be pretty impressive in their efforts.  You might need a corgi lol   They are poultry herding dogs so get along with chickens just fine.   Kimmy, people can def be pretty good at denial. You may have to choose whether to confront the issue head on or let her live in that denial state. I'm all for just being upfront and clear but you know your situation better so.....  good luck either way.   Not much to report in my life other that a great shopping trip at the thrift stores. Pics will be posted in "What are you wearing" thread.  I was specifically looking for summer evening dresses and found three.

      Well to be fair, if I didn't already KNOW what those patches were for, I'd be confused too. Kudos on finding a fun pride event! It looks like I'm going to be sitting it out again, nothing pride-based around here to DO this year. Le sigh.   Hugs!
    • KymmieL
      I am going to a pride event tonight, a story telling called tales from the taphouse. Being open with the wife I told her last night that I was going to this event. Just now my wife says, thank you for not hiding it but I still don't understand. It gave me strange dreams last night. I guess that she is living with blinders on as well. While I haven't came out an told her I am on HRT I am not hiding it either. There are three packages of the patches in the cabinet I have my medication in. right there in plain sight. I think she is just in denial.   Hugs to all, Kymmie

      Sorry about the chickens @Elizabeth Star. I know when something happens to one of my babies, I'm pretty wrecked. I mean I cried for two days because I was getting rid of my CAR. I'm useless if I lose a cat and it would be even worse if I felt that I'd failed them somehow. My deepest condolences. I know exactly how hard that is and how much harder it is on E.   Hugs!
