Good work researching @Darcy
IPL is supposed to be permanent, & less painful than electrolysis - that's why it's good, especially with stubborn hair re-growth.
The problem is that it only works on dark-coloured hairs, & leaves the pale ones behind. I also did find it somewhat painful, especially on my face.

I need to work on reaching out for support (when I need it) - as a commitment to self-care.
Because when I'm most tired or overwhelmed etc - I tend to go quiet, & keep to myself.
Just when I probably need to connect with people (for support) the most....
I just practiced doing that (asking for support), by phoning Sane Helpline (I got through) for the first time.

I just followed-up today on a MH Support Group, that I initially made enquiries about, over 18 months ago.
As it turned out, I wasn't able to attend at that time - because it conflicted with my Psychologist appointment (on a Saturday).
My psych did not seem to support my going to the group (at that time) - now she has changed her tune, & supports the idea....
I intend to go to the support group for the 1st time this Saturday (19th of May).
The group only meets once a month, but it's a start...

It's for greater social interaction, hopefully a shared sense of purpose, & maybe some mutual support.
It maybe mainly Bipolar-focused, which I don't have. I shall see.
I find that with MH groups - if available (there are very few here), I don't fit the criteria they have. So I'm excluded.
That also happened with some grief groups & grief support services, that I wanted to access.
