Just call me chewbacca and bring on the storm troopers

After announcing I felt better today I had a good look at myself in the mirror before getting into the shower..... Eeeeeeeekkk I look like next doors lawn with mange... No wonder I am always toasty in bed at night , I had neglected my underarms and legs for so long they had joined , weaved? Woven themselves together so I looked like a badly shorn sheep .... I am now looking much better though I may need some plug hole blaster... Think I am also a couple of pounds lighter

Glad it's not just me ;) x

I neglect the legs as I only wear jeans, this lead to the ATOS doctor putting in the report 'HAS NORMAL HAIR ON LEGS' Still have no idea what he meant by it, if I ever see him again I must ask him. But my under arms I do regular as clock work, once a month, under one arm one night and then the other two nightsa later after I have recovered from the first one lol xxxxx

Just had to google abnormal women's leg hair and there is no such thing as abnormal so that's got to be seen as a plus that you hadn't bothered to shave them...note to everyone called for atos go in as hairy as possible....if I get called for examination will not let my friend pluck my eyebrows for a month beforehand, gp with probably put, needs medical attention has a handlebar moustache over each eye

I have naturally red hair and virtually no grey - 2 or 3 now and again; it's a darker shade than before, but my one vanity as I am 55!

I'm lucky in that my legs& underarm hair is sparse, fair and fine... unfortunately the downy hair on my face isn't.

My facial hair is red and I owe the inventor of "no no" my thanks.

What a laugh you lot have just given me!

What a strange comment by Dr, wonder what significance it is?!

I leave my legs o'naturelle in winter, can't be bother to struggle to shave them except for Christmas parties! Underarm hair has virtually all gone, & most of my eyebrows too! I don't pluck them, considering drawing some in, but at least my fringe covers what is left of them!

I think onesie look ridiculous, but a hair one?! I feel itchy just thinking about it! AGH!

Gentle hugs xx
