Is it just me, or maybe just coincidence--or maybe after four shots my disposable razor is having a really good run--because I think my five o'clock shadow did not appear at five o'clock yesterday.
I was afraid to type it or say it out loud, because I can't decide if I have high hopes for this prescription or not. I still don't enjoy being on it, though I think all side effects are imagined, except for the diuretic properties. I think I'm even getting the hang of managing that last bit, taking it with a mid-morning snack instead of at lunch, and then I'm not waking up at three in the morning bursting.
Maybe it is my imagination, or an exceptionally good make-up job. It is definitely too soon to be expecting results. But I haven't been doing anything different hair-removal-wise since about October, and when I came home from work yesterday, there was only a slight bit of shadow on the sides of my chin.
Actually, just peeking under my shirt here, I'm seeing the dark but vellus hair above my navel is looking... uncharacteristically sparse. That is odd. It can't be right.
Even if my eyes are playing tricks on me, it felt good to "notice" it. It's been a week where I've just felt tired. Tired of feeling stressed and unwell. Tired of the way I look. Tired of feeling under-appreciated at work. Tired of worrying about family and friends. Tired even of feeling tired. Just the thought that something might be going as planned was, well, nice.
Two weeks and I haven't heard word about the results of the last blood test. I think that is also a very good thing.
