J'aime lire le francais ici! There are so many great expressions in French, maybe because they're "foreign" to us "tetes-carrees" :-).

Thanks for your cheerleading Vicey!

Hugs, Brenda

Brenda sweety,

I had no idea that you spoke french! Bravo Cherie! Hihihi!

So girls, is it therefore possible for Lucky to do Laser for her beard? I told her that for the legs its just TOO damn expensive, but I can always lend her my painful hair ripping machine MOUAHAHAH!

As for percoset Kathryn, i think ill just buy EMLA, its OTC here :)

I dunno about Laser, but i know for electrolysis you need to buy *time* here, so they have plans for say 2hrs, and they just take time off your card as you use it up... you don't need to pay everytime... so something like eyebrows, which takes say, 10 mins, could only take a full hour in the 5 sessions you may need to clear it completely... its not that expensive for that part of the face...

LEGS on the other hand take something like an hour PER leg PER session.. a friend who did it told me it cost her 2000$ for her two legs... ill keep using my 30$ machine thank you!

again... *il faut souffrir pour être belle!*

It's totally possible for Lucky to get laser done on her beard. Mine took 8 sessions before my tech said "No more laser for you, from here on out we'll do electrolysis to get the white/grey hairs and whatever few dark hairs that are left. I dunno how good Lucky is with pain. Laser hurts, even with the cream on. Granted I think it will hurt more without the cream. I have heard if you do laser after you've started HRT it kinda hurts more because your skin is more sensitive and softer from the estrogen. I got all my sessions in before HRT and I muscled through the pain.

I was talking to my Gender Therapist about electrolysis and found out she was a licensed Hypnotherapist and she is going to record a hynotherapy session for me with a trigger to numb my face to pain. I go back in two weeks to see her and I'll be able to keep it on my iPhone.

On another bright note, today my face looks like a train wreck from yesterdays electrolysis. I had some stops to make after my appointment and didn't go right home and put ice on my face. I'm paying for it today. I've had a couple people comment on it.

And if that wasn't the only thing I've had to deal with today, my girls have been sore all week. I arrived at work before I realized that I was wearing a form fitting shirt today for the very last time. I got to work, stopped by the rest room and looked in the mirror and had an OMG moment. That was when I realized that my development was showing. And I've caught a couple people obviously staring at my chest. It has been a long day. Quitting time is taking on a whole new sense of urgency.

Knowing my famial genetics, I may be reaching male fail pretty soon. The woman in my family were blessed by chest development. I suspect I'm not going to need augmentation surgery after all. My daughter is so going to give it to me the next time we get together. Little Miss Eagle Eye will notice.

Sighhhh........ Kathryn having a happy Thursday NOT :banghead:

Ice does feel good on the face afterwards Kathryn. I go to band after electrolysis sometimes and i wonder if others see the redness, gawd this is a long process !

Male fail happens in many ways, hang in there, actually getting kinda tired of hiding the girls and went out for exercise in a form fitting top today it felt great, a few gawkers from cars and guys in trucks, oh well, just smile....

Hi Cindy

I grabbed a half dozen cold packs after work today that one of the labs was tossing out. They receive reagents and they are shipped cold. I'm going to take them with me on the electrolysis days so I can ice down my face. My face is a little better today. KJ

Yeah cold packs work nice too and less messy then ice cubes in a baggy.

Glad your skin is feeling better Kathryn, just in time for the next cook off ;-)
