Every morning I wake up. I look at myself in the mirror and I see a bearded 23 year old man. Every morning I take that razor and shave my beard off in the shower. I shave the thick hair growing on my chest and stomach. I shave my body. I wear 3 layers of foundation. I wear eyeshadow, mascara, and lip gloss. Every morning before I leave the house...I change into the woman I am supposed to be. The daughter, the sister, the girlfriend.... This is how everyone sees me.  I am a woman, I have female parts and physique. But I have a genetic mutation which causes me to grow hair like no other woman. no one know this about me. Not even my boyfriend. So I will remain forever shaving frantically just to walk into work, school, walk into my social life. I can't let anyone see my true form...I don't want to freak anyone out.  Society cannot handle anything deviated from the norm. Especially in California...where appearance is everything....I have no choice but to go through the motions....pretend..that I am no different than you.

My GF is just like you! She goes to an electrologist and has hair removed (Every week!) And if you think people don't understand in California---try living this way in IDAHO!

Whoa now - what about laser removal? Surely hair follicles can't be that hard to kill.

I dont know what to do. :( I'd rather die than show my face without makeup.
