I hope you find this funny!
I’m annoyed. One of the not so lovely side affects of ALS is a shift in hormones apparently, and while I enjoy not being as “regular” with the monthly “curse” I am sure as hell not liking the new forrest that has blossomed on my face! EW!
I didn’t have as big of a problem with it until recently but in the last 6 months the hair growth on my upper lip and around my mouth has gotten completely out of hand! Given my hands are weaker now I can no longer shave it effectively~ I can’t belive I’m even admitting that I have to “shave” . BLECH.
Free hair removal for all! Now there is a slogan I can get behind!
I know it’s not earth-shaking or tragic, it’s just one more annoying aspect of this condition AND I’ve written about other more embarrassing things like Powerful Pooping and the trouble with sex in the missionary position when you have a weaker diaphram~( you can hyperventilate! It happened to me.)
however I find this topic to be particularly embarrassing. I have plenty of italian, armenian and african american friends who will be laughing their ass off at my discomfort with my newly found facial hair issues…as a blonde austrian nordic mix it’s all new to me!
Just another moment when you go, REALLY? This TOO? BLECH.
