For myself, hairy legs and armpits occasionally too are in, because I have been suffering from a rare, immensely painful nerve disorder for three years. I had an unsuccessful brain surgery last year, and this summer when I’m not curled up in the fetal position in bed, I am spending time with my girls, especially because my eldest starts 2nd grade in just one week, and a few days after that my “baby” will turn 3!
Summer has flown by, despite the fact I have spent every moment of it in pain, doing freelance work whenever I can, starting a blog and raising money, because the only way to ensure my second brain surgery is done correctly is to go to a team of neurosurgeon specialists in Pittsburgh who only study my rare nerve disorder. I live in Southern Arizona, so I’m trying to raise and earn the money needed for the round trip flight plus a five-night hotel stay for my husband while I learn to walk and eat again, after the surgery is completed.
I have so much hope pinned on this being a successful surgery, because the relatively few people in the world, like myself, that have Geniculate Neuralgia ( a constant, horrid stabbing sensation in my right ear) and those that have Trigeminal Neuralgia, which is related to mine, but affects people differently, only get a chance at 3 brain surgeries in their lifetime. If this next surgery doesn’t work either the chances that the constant. life-altering pain I’ve been fighting may never stop.
I didn’t mean to comment so seriously to your fun post! I also rarely shave because my balance is terrible, and I will never be able to perfect the leg up on the side of the bathtub women are shown doing in razor, or shaving gel commercials! Plus, the time I save not shaving my legs can now be spent getting more sleep, which is a definite plus, watching my girls play and learning natural remedies to make my world, and my husband’s world of chronic pain due to a long-ago injury and disability in the Army, somewhat more bearable for all of us. When I am well we will finally be able to grow our homestead- adding two milking goats and many native plants and herbs. There is simply too much life to be living (good and bad) to stop and take the time to shave!
Thanks for this fantastic post!
Thank you for taking the time to comment. While what you are going through…I can’t even imagine. I hope you can find some humor and comfort in this post. I will pray for your, Tracy!
