I'm Terrified of Starting HRT!

You mentioned that you're getting hrt from a nurse practitioner, I am getting my hrt from one as well. I am completely comfortable with her and wouldn't think of changing my provider. She is well versed in Transgender issues.

That's good to know. 🙂
Only reason I'd change my provider at this point is if I moved to Farmington Hills, Michigan, as Dr. William Powers of Powers Family Medicine would've been my ideal choice if location weren't an issue lol.

I suppose what makes me a bit hesitant/uncomfortable with my local provider is that it's based out of a women's health clinic that performs abortions for the most part, and I'm largely pro-life. 😕

Oh hey! A friend of mine sees him. Of course Farmington Hills is maybe ten minutes from my porch.

 

Hugs!

Yeah, I know what you mean.   I had to work through this myself.  They do do a lot more than abortions though. 
I was glad when I could move to the VA instead.

Coolness! I've heard he's like, the premier HRT guru to see and is a bit of a pioneer when it comes to advancements in transgender healthcare. XD

Indeed; and at least the clinic I'm going to refuses to perform abortions beyond 12 weeks...but still; I looked up a 12 week fetus and it looks an awful lot like a little person. O.O

At the same time though I can also understand the need for abortion; I just feel it should be a last resort to save a life rather than an alternative form of birth control lol.

Not something to do lightly.

      Today, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signed House Bill 1503 into law — legislation that allows student groups at colleges, universities, and high schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students.   https://www.hrc.org/press-releases/north-dakota-gov-doug-burgum-signs-anti-lgbtq-house-bill-1503-into-laww

      I have found therapy to be useful over the years, however, there was always this one thing that kept coming back that I didn't know how to deal with. After finally getting after my gender identity, I have noticed a lift in my mood, and improvement in several symptoms. What is hard though, is this time of year, normally my mood naturally increases. So we have to wait until October time frame to see if it dips down super low again. It isn't that I don't get dips week to week, because I still get some dips, just they haven't been as low as they were in the past. I think therapy has been pivotal to my success and will remain to be key to my continued success.

      Nothing special today.  Black high-neck tank and jeans. The neckline is more conservative then I usually wear but I really like the look and feel.    Also added finishing powder to my makeup routine. Not that I need it for work but practice makes perfect.

      Ok, thanks so much I'll be sure to check it out!

      Jandi, This is my life in a nut shell. I'm several years behind you, but this is exactly how I have come to see myself. @Jani is correct in pointing out that most of us are not girls, but women, and in my case an older woman. My Suzie is still coming around slowly to the fact that I'm transgender and we can openly talk about how this affects our relationship, and our different feelings. This June 26th, we will be married for 45 years, now she understands that my many girl friends, were just that GIRL friends. Nothing More. I'm not looking to be with anyone but my Suzie, and have to always remind her of that. It's human nature to want to be desired, in my opinion. Relationships die or fail when the people in them stop pursuing each other. It's the hunt, not the kill. It's about the fishing not just the landing of a trophy mount. My joy in gardening is the gardening, not just the harvest or cut flowers.   Good morning everyone, the coffee was HOT, black, strong, and never bitter.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Retirement opened the door for me. I'd told myself I needed to free myself but the fear of more abandonment and rejection and as has been said in the most recent postings - I looked to please and comfort others and deny myself. It's getting easier but the road to recovery is long and grueling.

      I've seen probably 5 therapist over the years and they treated me for depression and anxiety, anorexia and panic attacks but my symptoms always came back. My current Therapist was the first Gender Identity Specialist I've seen and the effects have been so refreshing and helpful. I notice the waiting lists for GI specialists and the lack of coverage and lack of available therapists, specially when you get out of major cities. Zoom helps but in person meeting so much more beneficial.   How about you? Have you found a therapist that has helped you become YOU?

      I had always been a diplomat, trying to get the people around me to get along - damage control.  And I was willing to compromise myself to preserve the peace.  I think I had gotten to a place where I was no longer living, but only reacting. I wonder if I would have ever felt free to look at my own issues if I had stayed in that relationship.  It was only when it collapsed that I felt free to explore my own neglected identity.  I had been living for other people for years.   This said, I do think we have to consider those around us.  But we can't let them, or our fear of offending them control us.

      YOU would have to decide that during sessions with your Gender Therapist.  For some individual, it could be, for another Enby person it may just be a normal feeling of growing up that comes on and disappears as a feeling in a few months or less.  ALL teenagers Cis/Trans/Enby go through periods where their bodies do not look right and give them some form of distress, but if it is actual GD is up to each one and their therapy team to explore, and as I said it is an individual realization.  Also it will not be a single body part likely to do it.  I am in my 70's and my two Cis teenagers are "deathly stressed" about whether their bodies look right, along with their AMAB sister and her stress is not related to her gender.

      Love this top although most days I cover it with a jean shirt to hide the tats. Although the laser treatments are really working at removing them.  Electrolysis day so no makeup- lipstick on a pig theory. lol.
