The T Chronicles

Welp, I just did my first self-injection of testosterone! Super scary, but manageable.


I am going to be chronicling my transition by taking a picture of myself every week for at least a year. I hope to have a nice montage by the end of year one! I will eventually post the video on YouTube. No links, I know, but it will be there.

That's fantastic news, Trilly.  Congratulations!  Your journey to manhood has begun.  I hope its a smooth one, filled with joy and discovery.

Good for you! I am still having a really hard time grappling with having to put a needle in my leg, so I am probably going to have to have the doctor do it for a while longer. That takes some strength right there. I can't wait to see your progress!

Changes are happening! I have recently noticed increased muscle mass in my arms (I lift weights, so I LOVE this!) and increases in other areas that are not safe for this forum, lol! Exciting times. I can’t wait for my voice to change. Hopefully that will start soon.

Neat! So you've got kind of a Hugh Jackman thing going on now? All growly and gravely?


I'm a little jealous honestly, I wish hormones did jack-all for MtF voices.

I haven’t posted here in a while, so here’s an update.


I can hardly tell, but I’m told that my voice deepens every day. I’m a lot hairier in general except for my arms, which are about the same. Still gaining muscle; I’m embarrassed but quite proud when I flex in the mirror! 

I just got a letter from my doctor to facilitate my gender marker change at the courthouse later this month (hopefully)! I will be changing my name at the same time!


Cool stuff!

Does it itch yet? I used to hate that part. Nearly as much as I hated shaving. PRO TIP: A little Vaseline will soften your hair up a bit so it's not so scratchy. Chicks dig that. ?


Or are you going to grow it out? Something like ZZ Top?

It does not itch yet, but there’s not much there yet anyway. I plan on shaving regularly once it comes in a bit more.

I suddenly have leg muscles for the first time in my life. That was a nice surprise.


Acne has become a bit of a problem. I’m using an over the counter face wash system for that, though.


Hopefully (finally) getting my name and gender marker changed next week. I feel like that will have a great effect on my disphoria and self-confidence.


Mostly good things!

My name has officially been changed! I am so happy that this has finally happened after weeks of roadblocks. I’m going to start insisting that people stop using my deadname and call me Trey instead.

Hi Trey.  First time just catching up on your original post.  Its cool to start at the beginning and see your steady progress and how it makes you happy.

I decided that I needed to throw myself a name day party to celebrate getting my name legally changed (yes, I got the idea from Game of Thrones). My family and I ate Chinese food and Boston cream pie and watched Netflix (Derry Girls). It was great to feel the support of my family. I even found out that my brother (who has never said anything at all about my transition) is happy for me. I finally feel like my whole family is supporting me at least a little bit.
