March 2000

Comfort Zone

After a year of taking my meds, people began to comment on how skinny my arms and legs were. My doctor suggested DecaDurabolin, a steroid to build muscle. I went on it for about 10 weeks, and it helped, but there were side effects I wasn’t prepared for. Within six weeks I started growing hair like a man—on my lip, more on my eyebrows, a cute little one on my chin. Though that was the least of my side effects, I felt it was taking my femininity away. Tweezerman tweezers were a lifesaver. They kept me well-groomed, and the good grip made my plucking painless, speedy and efficient. Tweezerman saved me a lot of time I could have wasted in the bathroom.
 —Susie Melton, Miami, Florida
