To all of the boys who want to be girls, and the girls that want to be boys:
My heart aches for you. It pains me to see your confusion and struggle in a world that doesn't quite understand you. I know what it feels like to want to be of the opposite sex, to want to be a male and look in the mirror without accepting what I see. To hate myself and feel weak just because I'm a girl. I know what it's like to buy male clothes and hang out with the guys because I feel more accepted and comfortable.
What helped me, what took away my depression, confusion and pain was one man that said "I have loved you with an everlasting love". one man that took the time to see into my heart and say "you are a beautiful woman, I have created you a woman, and I love you as you are". Through Jesus I found my Creator that made me the woman I am, and began to see that it wasn't a shame to be a woman, that I can be strong, bold, beautiful and celebrate the woman I was born. I found my identity in Christ. As he loved me through my confusion, he loves you. Those who are crying for help, this is the best solution. Please write me. amapolagirl@
Research suggests that hair loss during menopause is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Specifically, it’s related to a lowered production of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones help hair grow faster and stay on the head for longer periods of time. When the levels of estrogen and progesterone drop, hair grows more slowly and becomes much thinner. A decrease in these hormones also triggers an increase in the production of androgens, or a group of male hormones. Androgens shrink hair follicles, resulting in hair loss on the head. In some cases, however, these hormones can cause more hair to grow on the face. This is why some menopausal women develop facial “peach fuzz” and small sprouts of hair on the chin.
