I'M FINALLY ON T! :D

23 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I just need to shout out my joy because today i the day that I joined the On T-side of life :)

After a drawn-out and seemingly futile attempt to get T through health care I decided to do it privately. I have been talking to a therapist since August last year but everything has stalled because he got sick and transferred me to a doctor who is not knowledgeable at all. The two of them even seem to fundamentally disagree on how this process works. The doctor says he is willing to start me out but it doesn't sound like it's gonna be right now and he doesn't sound confident about how to go ahead with it. So anyways...

I saw a specialist privately today and he just ran some tests and then gave me T right away! It was so cool! He treats a lot of transpeople so I feel like I'm in good hands. Today, everything just seemed to pan out. I managed to catch the train back from the specialist to make it back to my town before the pharmacy closed. The specialist told me that they'd probably have to order it so I could pick it up tomorrow but they had it in stock! It's so cool! So I had my first dose this afternoon (I'm sitting around waiting for the beard to come in). The specialist started me out on gel just to see how everything goes with the possibility to switch to shots later on. Until he knows how I react to it and gets the results of the bloodwork he did today to see what my natural T-levels are and what the final dose will be, he's put me on half dosage which is **** gel once a day. So I don't really know if I'll even see any big changes fast. But my body is extremely sensitive to testosterone to start with so I hope so! I'm just really anxious to find out. The main thing is the ball is rolling and what half dose won't fix, full dose will in time!

I'M ON T! WAAHOOOOOOOO!!

Thanks for listening to that. And thank you to everyone at Laura's for all the support and love you are showing here! For me, that really means a lot and I know others feel the same way :)

Much love,

Talon.

Talon,

Goofy me, I thought you've been on T for a long time already. Anyway, that is great news.

You look good already, but with facial hair and muscles, oo la la.

Hugs,

Shari

Ended up only getting 3 hours sleep and so am not up to posting too coherently but I HAD to tell you how happy I am for you.

Welcome to a whole new world.

At least it is for me. Hope it will be as great for you.

It's like someone finally turned the lights on and I'm no longer fumbling in the dark

The physical changes are a little slower but you'll wake up one morning and be surprised to see how fast they really have been happening.

Great news!

Talon:

Heck, yeah, man!!!

Honestly, I believe transguys generally have FANTASTIC transitions, I really do! Okay, bottom surgery is far from being perfected yet. However, notwithstanding that I believe transguys often have remarkable transitions ... better than we transwomen more often than not. Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

Heck, I love transguys: The confidence, the class, the style. What's not to like. I don't care what they're packing down below. To me, they're guys ... all the way ... and better than cisguys in so many ways. Hey, I just feel that way.

May your light shine brightly, our brother! Enjoy the ride, man, because it's a doosey! Just rock it!

Peace & Joy :thumbsup: Lacey Lynne

Thank you so much guys and girls!

Johnny, that's totally how it feels :) Even though nothing physical has happened yet, the knowing that I'm on T just makes me happy and today after my 2nd dose I just feel strangely elated and really confident (And I sweated like a horse at the gym ha ha). And the knowing that physically things can and will only go the right way from here means everything. Hearing your story, it sounds like T fixed your life on many levels. That is so awesome :)

Lacey Lynne, I feel the same way about MTFs! I think it may come from having to live on both sides or something. You girls are just down-to-earth, wise people and it's like you know how to appreciate all the good things in life and the things you have fought for. So often you're not really concerned with all the petty BS that bio girls tend to freak out over (generalizing here, I know bio girls can be great people too but this is just my life experience ha ha) :)

Hugs!

Talon.

Soon, when you wake with a "thick" throat and think you're coming down with a cold? You're probably not. ;)

I started out on Tostran gel myself, and while it was sticky and annoying, I'm glad I did (although I'm very happy to be on Nebido shots now). I've read that starting with a slow development is better for the development of the voice in the long run. I'm not much of a singer, but I still need to be able to sing for work, so I'm glad I started out slow. But that's just me I guess. XD
