Hello everyone. I hope i am not going to get dogged on for this, I am at the breaking point for my facial hair. it has got to go. since i have waaay more time than money i ordered a clean and easy home electrolysis unit because It is Absolutely ALL we can afford. Going for laser or pro electrolysis is impossible right now. so, when this is your only choice you have, you go for it. It does work. I have the time, am Highly motivated, I do not care that it's tedious work; better than this hair. I will let everyone know how it goes. it will be here tomorrow..

It most likely will work. The only trick is finding the right setting. Too low and it won't work. Too high and you'll get burns that could lead to scarring. It's a good thing you have the time. It's going to be a long and tedious process. Good luck.

Nikki!

GOOD LUCK!!!! You consider getting some dental numbing creme - it works well on the lips also (that is what my electrolysis uses when she worked that area. And please be careful, you do not want hurt that that complection you have. Maybe start at a low setting and work from there. Sometimes itis better to zap it a couple times with a low then one time with a higher one - it is also less painful. And make certain you have plenty of ice packs on hand to keep the swelling down.

Afterwards, it is a good idea to use an anti-bacteral on the area you just finished so that it will heal faster with less chance of further complications , like scarring. Most importantly, PLEASE BE PATIENT. Working with a professional can take a year or to complete, and doing it yourself will probably take longer. There are serveral good sources on line that explain the proscess. One is in THE TS ROADMAP that is available here on Laura's site.

AGAIN GOOD LUCK!!! Many hugs and best wishes on your success!

Good luck with that road you are traveling down. I have started the HPL or home pulsed light technology for permanent hair removal. This is an FDA and Canadian FDA approved device for hair removal that is almost painless, you do feel a touch of heat when the device fires a flash of light. It recharges in seconds and you move on. I cannot report results yet as I am into my second go round. As a professional beach bum, I am too tan right now to try this on my face, according to directions. I have used this where the sun does not shine and upper thighs. But am still shaving as well. It works best on dark hair, blondies might not get help here. Will report any positves/negatives when I can. I got mine at Amazon. http://www.silkn.com/flash-and-go/

Hello everyone, Well, I thought i would give a little feedback to my experience thus far with the clean and easy home electrylosis unit. MY experience has been positive so far. I have cleared my upper lip about 95% so far.Zero starring, redness always clears pretty quickly, The hair thus far HAS Not grown back, I started with a smaller area on my upper lip this past July, It never grew back. Now i have about cleared my entire upper lip. It is time consuming, but, I really enjoy using it. It is alot of fun! does hurt a little. I use it on setting 4, for about 15-20seconds, the hair comes out efortlessly. So far I Love it! and give it ***** stars!!

Nikki

      I've been devoting time lately to my late-in-life hobby: an on-line radio station. I spent 13 years in the industry back in the 80s and early 90s, both out on the air and in copywriting and production. In terms of audience, I'm pretty much targeting people close to or in my age group. I think the scientific term is "fossils".   I'm getting positive feedback from this toy of mine. It turns out that when you do something just for fun it can impact people in a positive way. Who knew?

      Hello,   One of my best friends has an autistic 11-year-old. I have known them for about seven years. When I transitioned 18 months ago, the child had questions about the new situation. I explained things as best as I could and answered every question. They have had no problem adjusting to my new name or my new pronouns.   But they have repeatedly made comments in my presence like "when is she going to sound like a woman?"   I have had two conversations about this topic previously with her. I tried "well, I have been speaking this way for fifty years and it has been very hard to change." Then I tried "not all women have to sound a certain way in order to be women." Neither has been effective. Is there another line I am not thinking of that will be clearer? Or is this just going to be an eternal thing?   I do not feel my attempts at voice feminization have been very successful, so when I am among friends I often don't try very hard. I am not angry when they make these comments, but it does hurt a little when I am reminded of the fact that I am 'different' than other woman in their eyes.   I intend to discuss this more with their parents, but I wanted to get any tips from y'all before I do so.   thanks in advance!

      While the Los Angeles area is much safer than many areas, even we have our problems from time to time.  No direct evidence in this case, and maybe none ever, but the Holiday Season with parties in many welcoming and supposedly safe places have a problem with  "Date Rape" drugging/  A Trans friend of mine whom @Carolyn Marie may know or at least know of was the victim of that a year ago. The person is a survivor but is still dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of the experience.  I am there for the person, but they are having a tough time still.  Please be careful about who you are with and what is happening to you.  Make sure there are several people with you and that all of you have each other's backs.

      @KymmieL, I'm sorry for your loss. It's sad to lose a family member; so sad that mere words aren't adequate. It's especially hard during this time of year. You and your family will be in my prayers. May you all find the comfort and healing you need during your tie of grief.

      I am not on any HRT so my body is the one I was born with pretty much though it creaks and pops rather more in recent years. I am fairly well accepted in most places in the sense that people don't seem confused about how I present with regard to gender so that's OK. With regard to behaviour, I can't say I have adopted a different walk or way of moving so if that draws attention maybe I am to thick skinned to notice now to be honest. My speaking voice is different depending on if its people I know or not, so it tends to vary quite a bit. I would say if anything gives me away it might be my hands which are not huge but fairly long. I don't really think about being trans 90% of the time. I have to be a bit more careful in regard to presentation to try and look right   but practice makes perfect they say. I have two different modes really, if I am out playing music on a gig I tend to go for a more showbizzy look.  At other times I am a bit mumsey or grandma ish.

      My brother died at 48 a couple years ago from a lifetime of chewing tobacco.  It sure is hard to see people never make it to recovery.   I've been trying for years to pull my best friend out of his alcoholic retirement home.  I can't help but to keep trying, but there is only so much you can do for someone else.  I think he is better off where he is than locked up where he couldn't get a drink.  He's a musician I grew up with and we never played together much as adults.  It sure would be fun to play with him for real finally.   Finally doing transition and getting on a formal road of recovery as a way to fix my social anxiety is starting to make me feel better.  I've been trying to get up the nerve and figure out the logistics of hiring some musicians to record with for a couple years now.  I can be pretty slow at making things happen, but I do make steady progress.  It sure has been a challenge breaking out of my anti-social shell.  You should see the notes in my journal from a couple years ago.  I really have been working on this for years.
