Amazing Progress


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, sorry for not being active for the past few months, but i have a happy story for you all. 


 As a minor, the final decision to go on Testosterone is out of my hands. both my mother and father made it clear to me that they wanted me to wait until i was 18. I felt hopeless. It often feels that way as a teen, that my life just isn't in my hands, But i kept pushing. I didn't stop talking about it with them. i wrote a letter. it went through absolutely everything they needed to know, as well as what my feelings as a Trans person are like for me. 

It worked. They changed their minds. Over dinner my dad told me that i could go on testosterone. For the first time in months, i felt like my cries actually relieved something. a weight was lifted. I'll link the document here so that anyone who was in the same situation i was in can read through it, and maybe wright a letter of their own. 

I get my first shot very soon, and I'm really excited!

@hormonedifficientin2ways congratulations! Perhaps it's hard to say which is most affirming, getting to start T or having had your parents finally validate you. Two different realms of euphoria. Best wishes.

That’s fantastic news! I know this can be such a hard situation, but it sounds as though you dealt with it brilliantly. Congratulations, and much respect to your parents for listening.

That’s fantastic news and just as @Vidanjalipoints out there are two great realizations in your post. Acceptance by your parents and starting HRT soon. 

Congratulates and enjoy the ride.

Aww this is excellent news. As a person Newly on T, you can message me anytime if you have any questions etc... it's good to have support whilst you start out. So far T has been very exciting and gender affirming for me and I'm sure it will be for you too
