Stubborn Viking Hair

As I now close in on 190 hours of facial electrolysis, I look back on my naive optimism from two years ago.

Still a long ways to go,* although these days I rarely shave as long as I’m getting two hours of work done each week.

But the remaining hair is pretty translucent, making it hard for my electrologist to find, so I have to let it grow longer . Thankfully, it’s not terribly visible, but the feel of it — and the gender dysphoria it triggers — isn’t much fun.

* Hoping that I’ll be finished up in another six months or so. It’s a triumph of hope over experience, since my “stubborn Viking hair” as she calls it, is not giving up without a considerable fight.
