Wax on! Wax off! OK, this is not going to be a blog about the 80’s film Karate Kid, but life is short and I covered some intense replies yesterday.
If you forgot, didn’t realise and take it all in, recapping I have less sensation on my left side, generally looking like a stroke and referred to as a Hemi. Has a longer term, but let’s start with that.
(Hemiplegia: total or partial paralysis of one side of the body that results from disease of or injury to the motor centres of the brain)
Every so often, I still like to get a leg wax. No one see’s my legs that count. But every now and again even my Carers will comment. They don’t get out of control, but word from the wise;
HEAT ENCOURAGES HAIR GROWTH!
I try to keep an eye on them and I gauge it as;
It’s not that bad yet!
A little longer!
And God damn it! It’s going to hurt!
So, Fun-Fact Ladies
Things that make waxing hurt more.
Crazy lady hormones, 1 week on either side – JUST DO IT!
Save your coffee for after waxing…
So, you would think with my ‘Hemi’ that my left leg wouldn’t hurt as much?
I should be so lucky! They fucking hurt the same!!!!!!
Today my beautician actually asked which leg I wanted waxed first. To be clear, she does them both at the same time and you rotate like a chicken on a rotisserie “thing” in an over, but the reason she asked is because I’m right handed.
Therefore the left leg will hurt more. To be clear, it’s nice to get a leg wax every now and again, even if I don’t wear shorts out of the house and only my Carers all woman see them. It’s something I do for me.
But these days, I even self-medicate for a leg wax!
I find 10mg of Oxy normal is my ‘Happy Place’ for a level of tolerance! 3 hours of pain relief while my left leg twitches is about all I can deal with.
So, there you go, 1 F** Bomb and an amazing little ditty for something different.
