numbnuts gone

I had the first round of genital electrolysis back in October, where I had very little pain and barely even felt anything. In my second round in January the pain was about the same as my face and now that I've recently started the third round, the pain is even worse than before. Is it normal for genital electrolysis to get more and more painful each time? I was thinking maybe the difference in pain could the result of not using enough numbing cream, or not spreading it enough, or maybe in certain spots the cream is sitting on top of the public hair and not the skin, or maybe the saran wrap gets messed up and the cream is absorbed by my underwear, or gets moved to the wrong places.

However, last time I taped the saran wrap to a pair of underwear so it stays in place, and I used a lot of cream. I used a full 30g tube 2 hours before my appointment then another 30g tube 1 hour before my appointment. I made sure to spread it around and rubbed the cream around so it would not sit on top of hair. It was still extremely painful. Does anyone have any idea why it could go from painless to excruciating?

I have electrolysis around the base of the penis and the perineum. In the second round, the perineum was less painful than around the penis. So far in the third round, only the hair around the penis has been treated. At my next appointment I will probably have 15 minutes of work done around my penis and 45 minutes on the perineum, so maybe the worst is over for this round.

      Boebert is a Boob! (no offense to boobs intended)😊  Her recent public spectacle of shallow human behavior is additional proof.

      Definitely love the change in weather ... and the end of summer humidity!

      I agree @Carolyn Marie!  it's a start. Also, please share NTS results when they come out.  That will interesting (and likely more accurate).   @awkward-yet-sweet That's cool.  Your choice.  I understand your concerns about Gov agencies and security/privacy.  But the way I look at it, Google, social media, and whatever agency has most all my information and probably know everything about us anyway.  So, if I am asked to participate ... I'm ALL IN! 😊 https://www.census.gov/content/dam/Census/library/factsheets/2019/comm/2020-confidentiality-factsheet.pdf   @Charlize here is what I found on the Census HPS website about latest round (which it seems they do 3 or 4 times a year).  Fortunately I maintain a U.S. address also. "The Census Bureau randomly chose your address, not you personally, to participate in this survey. A limited number of addresses from across the country were scientifically selected to represent the entire population. Your participation is important, and your response cannot be replaced by one from another household address." https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/household-pulse-survey.html

      Welcome Raelyn! Glad you're here! Another Florida belle here! I understand the need for some to leave. Some wonderful friends have become refugees fleeing this "free" state. I choose to stay! I hope you find the wonderful advice, support & acceptance here as I have.   Hugs! Delcina

      My therapist lives about 700 miles away - we’ve on.y ever met by videoconference. She’s awesome.

      My VA counselor is a 70 some mile drive.  I usually do the sessions on line.  But she also facilitates our support group which I usually drive up to attend twice a month.  She is LGBTQ herself, which helps.  I like her a lot.

      I  wonder who gets invited to participateI.  The links above don't get into the survey.  While some may not wish to participate i certainly don't mind having my voice heard if it might help in the understanding of trans issues.  In the past census any questions about gender other than male or female were not allowed.     Hugs,   Charlize

      Okay, this analogy seems a lot better. What do you think?

      Well I had my first appointment with my new counselor this morning. Even though she is just an Intern. She is great. She is a Navy Vet. Stationed of all places, Pearl Harbor. Lucky girl. I think I will like working with her. I have another appointment next Wens again.  Only problem is that she is in Loveland, CO. About 80 miles from me. But she is OK with doing video appointments if the need arises. Today was almost a 2 hour session. Being it was the intake appointment. We touched on a lot of points. Some she noted to discuss later.   So being it was the VA Of course, I dressed feminine. Gray camo skort, and a gray woman's Harley t. Once I got home, and changed to go into work. He asked if I wanted to show off my legs, then something about fat rolls or something. Then He asked if the zoom meeting I attended last night was a trans anonymous meeting. Nope just a meeting of friends. I wonder if he has changed again and not supporting me anymore. Did my wife get to him? Do I only have my middle son supporting me.  I hope I am wrong. It just kind of hurt when he said that.   Hugs, Kymmie

      I love the cooler weather. Pumpkin spice, college football, colors even though I’m in the city.

      How about this revised analogy?   Would this be more clear to as an introduction to these important terms?

      These cases will all end up in the Supreme Court.  We'll see what happens then.
