For someone who is pretty much stuck in one room and a bed all the time, you’d think I wouldn’t bother too much with prettying (is that even a word?) up myself, after all I don’t see a lot of people and some of the time I feel far too ill to even get dressed let alone put makeup on (though I do try to when feeling up to it). Despite all that, I still want to look my best which gives me a lift and I have a long standing hatred with my body hair (and polycystic ovaries which means excess hair!) and over the years have tried waxing, shaving, plucking, epilating, electrolysis, you name it I’ve done it all. I’ve even bought 3 home laser systems, none of which worked (2 Rio systems, you’d think I’d have learnt the first time and one whose name escapes me).
I have been reading tons of reviews online about a fairly new IPL home system from Boots. Called Smooth Skin. The reviews were mostly very favourable so I took the plunge, splashed a lot of cash and fingers crossed this one will work! I’ve just done my 2nd session, it’s fast and easy, doesn’t tire me out with my illnesses and will be a huge boon with permanent hair reduction. Being ill it’s so hard to keep up with all the shaving and I don’t want any visitors coming into my room and thinking there’s a gibbon sat in bed! Ok, I’m not quite that hairy but you know what I mean!
Anyway, yesterday I felt horrid, full on chest heaviness, exhaustion and all those lovely POTS symptoms. I think I may have overdone it in the past week. Yesteray was spent being a complete slob in bed, just catching up on trashy magazines, not to mention the new series of Grey’s Anatomy, yay!
The day before I finally finished my 6th psychology module (3 more to go then the exam) just waiting now to hear if I passed, I think i did a good job though!
Today I feel a little better in the POTS way but my neck and shoulders are so tight my ears are ringing and feel full and I have a headache, wail. If it’s not one thing it’s another. I feel like someoned twisted my neck round and round until it looks like a sprung coil. Thanks EDS! I’m kind of suspecting it may be because I may be meeting Mr N next week, all being well. The anticipation must be subconsiously making me nervous or something and making my neck and shoulders tense up, grrr! I want to feel as ok as I can be and actually enjoy it! Off to do my stretching excercises and to try and ease it off and keep it all relaxed!
