      Happy to hear things went well and the friendship rekindling will continue. 
    • SaraAW
      Nothing to add other than my support for both to find a solution you’re happy with. I know how important hair can be to ones self identity. *hugs*
    • SaraAW
      Welcome Michaela, glad you found this place. Happy to hear the support of your wife is with you. 
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Welcome Micheals it’s a pleasure to meet you.  Your intro post was quite pleasant to read and I am so glad your wife is being so d sad supportive and accepting.   There are some here not so lucky.  This is a great place to learn more about yourself and make some friends that are in the same boat.  I look forward to reading more!

      Thank you very much Kate and may I say welcome with a warm heart.   I am thinking about just going in to get my standard cut soon as my attempt to grow my hair again has failed.  So I am conceding defeat and I have ordered an inexpensive wig to use around the house and “practice “.  I live in Vermont so I am not so worried about the heat and humidity, especially right now.  Lol

      I am glad things are going well Susan. It takes time for someone to process things so the month may be ideal.   Tracy

      Hi Shawna, I'm kind of in the same boat, MPB recovered a good bit, but at 15 months of HRT, I'm probably just hanging onto false hope for a full head of hair.  I was clean shaven for a long time (20 years), and I'm not sure that's the best way to go.  In my experience, my skin wasn't too happy with the wig cap being on it all the time.  You can wear protective caps and then the wig, but I'd also think just having some shortish hair cover might give a little more protection, as well as provide some grip for some wigs with small hair combs to hold them in place.   The other option you should look into before changing your current hair would be toppers.  In men the short styles aren't often the best looking, but there are long haired female toppers with human hair that can be dyed, styled, and blended with your natural hair.  I'm growing mine out now to pursue that option.  Depending on where you live, it's potentially a much more comfortable solution, temperature/humidity-wise, and provides more flexibility for exercise.   Figures that my first post would be about MPB.   Best of luck, Kate

      HRT,I have a family history of blood clots and this was discussed with my therapist with the pill form.I had one 2 years ago and was lucky to survive it.Surgeon was good to me about the BA,he has done them with the patients not on HRT.One was my good friend Meghan done two years ago

      Hi Adrianna, This is wonderful news about your coming out to family and work.  as you are finding out, it gets easier as time goes on.  You start to care even less what others think of it, so much so, that you end up telling people you hadn’t even planned on coming out to in the course of your journey.  I had a question about your upcoming Breast Augmentation surgery.  I’m not sure how far along you are regarding the BA but is your surgeon concerned about you not having been on HRT prior to the surgery?  Once you've had the BA surgery and then down the road decide to start on HRT, your breasts can get so much larger than you had planned or possibly wanted (depending on your genetic disposition). My internal medicine doctor said that she wanted me on HRT at least a year if I wanted BA surgery.  I realize that other IM docs or endocrinologists may not be that conservative in their approach.   I am just curious if you’ve had this discussion yet.  In my case as it turns out, I’m not going to have any BA because I am almost where I want to be at 16 months HRT.   Congratulations on your coming out, Susan R🌷

      Thank you very much for your warm welcomes and the compliment. I still have a lot to learn and am trying to be more open, so I will appreciate your advices and guidance and share my stories when I can.  By the way, we are preparing for Lunar New Year holiday (we call it Tet holiday) here in Vietnam as well as some other asian countries and I am so excited.

      Ok, so, I've talked about this on PM some, but for everyone else, my relationship with this friend is totally kaput now. I waited a couple weeks of no contact and then called her to talk, she started things off by saying that she forgave me because she assumed my hormone medication was making me unreasonable (which I do not believe is a fair assessment of the situation). Not really a great thing to say to a trans person, it's kind of like telling a cis woman with a personal grievance "you're being totally crazy, but it's ok because I assume you're on your period." She tried to claim some kind of enlightened, insider knowledge on gender transition and how crazy it makes people because she had been friends with another trans person in the past. This really threw me for a loop and I wasn't very collected the rest of the call, it was obvious I was getting choked up or crying and trying to power through it. She refused to talk about anything and just wanted to "move forward" and make plans for the immediate future without actually addressing anything. I forced the issue and she eventually apologized but was obviously very irritated and really didn't want to.   I called her the next day when I had regained my composure and told her in no uncertain terms that we can forgive and forget and agree to disagree on all the past stuff, but she cannot blame either my past behavior or any future behavior on these nonsense hormone issues she's making up. She got so mad when I said this that she was literally yelling at me over the phone within minutes, shouting about how I wasn't in my right mind because I was hormonal. So that's over!   Jesus Christ, what a nutcase. I am not wasting any more time with someone who thinks I'm a mental invalid who can't advocate for myself. I mean, HRT can cause mood swings in the early stages, but it's usually relatively minor. I doesn't cause people to lose their mind and do and say things that are entirely out of character that they don't mean, which is basically what she wanted me to admit to, to say "yeah, I was crazy 'cuz of the hormones, you were right about everything." My god, I've never been more insulted and talked down to in my life. Good riddance.
