Hairy Arms; Please help.
Hi, I’m a 15 year old girl and I have problems with my hairy arms. I have dark brown hair and I’m really self consious. In sixth grade, I got made fun of alot, and sixth graders are pretty young, so it bothered me alot. I decided to shave my arms, and I did so. People noticed that I shaved my arms once and I got made fun of that too. I would wear my sweatshirt during class when it was really hot, and no matter how warm I would get, I always kept that sweatshirt on because I didn’t want to get made fun of. In seventh grade, I got made fun of a few times and people we’re always pointing it out to me that I had hairy arms. I kept wearing sweatshirts so I people wouldn’t notice. In eighth grade, nothing really happened. I guess a few times people pointed it out, but not too much. Now I’m a freshman and no one has really pointed anything out to me, but I’m still really self consious. It’s so embarrassing for me. I’ve tried shaving, waxing, bleaching with peroxide, and just anything I could do at home. I would really like the help. And you don’t have to tell me to accept it or whatever. Just please let me know what I could do. (:
