Transition Update 3 : Day 91 - Losing Confidence

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 27, 2015, 5:23 AM
Day91

Hello all. I'm now three months into hormones, and four months into electrolysis. I haven't done an update in a while for two reasons, A) there has been next to no changes so far, and B) I've been getting a lot of bad news about the transition lately.

I'll start with the changes, since there isn't much to say there. The only noticeable physical change I've had so far is that my nipples have become swollen and sore to touch.  As for other things like fat redistribution, emotional changes, breast growth, facial changes, ect, there's been none of that. I know it's still early, but it's discouraging to be no different than I was at the start three months ago.

As for the reason I'm losing confidence in the transition, it's because of a lot of bad news I've gotten about electrolysis, and body hair removal in general. I originally thought it would take 6 to 8 months for the electrolysis to remove my facial hair, and then I planned on doing electrolysis on other parts of my body. However, the electrolysis will actually take two years or more just to do my facial hair (at my current rate of four hours per week, which is a lot). If it takes 2+ years just to do my face, relying on electrolysis for the rest of my body isn't feasible because that might take a decade or two.

My only other options for removing my body hair is laser hair removal, or simply relying on the hormones to thin it out. However, standard lasers do absolutely nothing on redheads. I've heard about a few alternate forms of laser that might work, but all the research I've done is wildly inconsistent about whether or not any alternate form of laser works on redheads at all. Some say it works fine, others say it will do nothing. The same goes for my research on hormones effecting body hair, because the effect on body hair is just as inconsistent in what I've read from research and other transgenders.

At this point I don't know what to do anymore. I simply can't transition if there's no way to remove my body hair, and I have no solution for it. I would really like to hear from any transgenders out there who have light colored hair (red, blonde, gray), and find out what, if anything, worked for their body hair.

angelthewolf1012.deviantart.co… I'm trying to find the original owner of this. This is a clearly stolen piece- apologies if it is not yours! 

I am consulting as many people with "foxx" in their dA name as possible, as it corresponds with the sig. Sorry!

It's been 2 months since you posted your latest news about your transition, how many changes have happened lately then? Because don't they mostly take about 6 months (I think) till the body transformation is complete? If so then you must be nearly half way there! :D

But if you have time tell me about the changes so far!

Hormones take way longer than that. More like a year or two.

I will do an update next week.

Hello there, SapphireFoxx.
I'm WOLWATCHER12, an aspiring college student and cartoonist.
I'm even working on a comic book where the superhero is named after you.

Name: Madison Hawkins.
Hero Name: The Sapphire Fox.
Occupation: College Sophomore
Powers/Abilities: Agility, Super Strength, Adhesion, Steel Claws.
Talents: Solving mysteries, helping people in need, and when in battle with common crooks she'll use her good looks to her advantage.

What do you think?
I have been thinking about sending the idea to Archie or IDW Comics.

hey there, i have a few questions!

firstly, i am a straight guy, is it a bit weird i like your stuff?
secondly, i am by far not a very rich guy, so is it possible you'll ever release more subscription only stuff as you did with DP?
