Ermahgerd! Hermerns!

My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday. :)

Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.

Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!

Well, so far I feel exactly the same. I'm assuming the oestrogen is just counteracting the initial testosterone surge of the leuproreline injection. Hopefully I'll notice something once that's over. <_<

Time.........  I also felt impatient but remember just like puberty years past for all the changes to be visible.  Oddly i sometimes forget the amount of change that has happened.  Perhaps the most noticeable changes took place when my breasts were extremely sensitive during early growth.  Don't worry you will have the "joy" of the ouchies as well.

Its more the fact that mentally I don't feel any different, which is why I'm assuming it's due to the surge in testosterone. Hopefully by next week my T-factories will have shut down and the oestrogen will start to do its work.

For some of us even the mental changes can take a few days. The first thing I felt was a sense of calm. Remember it's not a sprint it's a journey. Enjoy it, Slow and steady is always the best. If the changes happened over night we would loose our minds. I know I would have. 

 

Many hugs

Ermahgerd!

 

I almost peed my pants laughing at the introduction!!!! I have a similar saying that I send out on some birthdays on facebook. Any updates on how you're feeling? I was 46 when I started HRT as well, that was three years ago. It changed my life sooo profoundly that all I can say is ermahgerd !!!! Relly looking forward to hearing  how you're doing. Some dread the crying spells but for me I have learned to appreciate them so much as it constantly reminds me of how hormones put me in touch with my sensitive side. 

 

Still Laughing,

Not hugely different; it's just taken the edge off so that my brain is no longer screaming at me. Also, my skin is starting to get softer and less greasy and I don't stink like a man when I sweat. I'm at the start of week 4 so still early days.

HRT, your mileage may vary....:)

 

For myself by week 4, my mind just felt a lot clearer. Other trans friends I know were complete emotional roller coasters, and other trans friends felt little emotional change. Remember your watching grass grow!!!

Oh my gosh, if I spoke that way like you did in your title to my wife she’d figure me out in a second I’d have a lot of explaining to do. And just like a joke I recently read, she’d yell at me,  accuse me of being a cross dresser, and tell me to get out... So I’d have to pack up her things and go. 

 I’d have to say I felt much like you did in the beginning, I didn’t notice much and felt very similar, but now approaching a year things are very very very very, wait where is my seatbelt, very very different. My mind is improved 92% my ability to reach For emotions far greater, enjoyment of myself Unimaginable. I no longer want to fight with my spouse or my daughter, I just want to hug them and love them. I plan on mending some old fences and I know it’s going to make me cry... I typically cry about something three or four times a week where I don’t think my face saw water for the last 40 years. But it’s all good, just like plants need water to grow let your feelings out sometimes... Write some terrible poems, it’s doing me wonders, you can access things you had no idea that you needed to put down on the page, and if you do let me know I’d love to read it.

squishy hugs,

Jae

I'm lucky in that my fiancée is pansexual and was actually the one who convinced me to start transitioning, so when I picked up my first prescription I literally shoved the box in her face and screamed "Ermahgerd! Hermerns!". :D

      dear dad was a terrible drunk
      he'd drink until he got sunk
      vodka worked very well for him
      his liver and kidneys did not   he had two wonderful sisters
      that would call him out on his junk
      they tried to help him get better
      but he died in his own pool of funk

      Diet!!! Exercise!!! I thought we weren't supposed to swear on the forum!?   Well, it's a swear word to me at least, I'm chubby and proud... I've been under the weather for a few weeks and have not been able to handle any food for the last 8 days, just a single top ramen with a pinch of the chicken flavor at best each day. This for me is nearly a sin (I love to eat!) and I've already dropped 10 pounds and counting, this by the way is NOT recommended, it is super unhealthy. I can't wait to eat again, I fantasize and dream about food! Hot dogs and mac&cheese, chocolate cake and some ice cream, maybe a dozen crispy cream donuts to feed my inner piggy.... OH I WANT TO EAT! My coworkers are sick of my whining, they all got better and eat normal again, if I see one more cubicle dweller munching a hot pocket I'm going home! From all the stories around work and from family I have another week to go before My tummy will  work again, it's like torture! I hate that my girls are not as fluffy under my shirt like they were before, I can't wait to feed my curves some chocolate cake when I feel better. I am hoping the upside to my unintentional diet will be loosing some boy fat and gaining some girl curves! Big squishy hugs, Jae

      Hi Brandi,  I only came out to her about the cross dressing, I have yet to drop the girl and hormone part... That's gonna take a while and some counseling before it happens- As I've said before, "if she screams, accuses me of being a cross-dresser and tells me to get out, I'll just pack up her things and go"   (not really, I'd beg at her feet on my hands and knees and lie my tail off)   squishy hugs, Jae

      Hi.  This is my first day here.  I have a 15 (almost 16) year old teenager, he was born a female and now is trans to boy. This was only brought to our attention 2 years ago.  My teen (we will call him David) had alway been very feminine acting, loved wearing dresses and playing with dolls.  Around the latter part of middle school it started to change.  He cut his hair short in 8th grade, then the summer before 9th grade, he told us he's like to become a boy.  We are very open minded and accepting parents.  So we were ok with it, and supportive.  Told him we'd always love him no matter what.  He seems to still like boys.  But my major question in my mind - this week - is when should we allow him to start on T hormones, and let him do his top surgery.  He wants to do top surgery right away.  We told him he needs to wait until senior year.  My "other" son, who is a year and a half older than him supports him 100%, and started a Fundme campaign for him to get top surgery.  He challenges me all the time on why we are making him wait.  I told him, insurance won't cover any of it until he's 18 (I think).  But the other reason is that I really want to make sure he is 100% SURE before he does anything. Just looking for discussion.  Thanks!

      Hey Jae Bear, That sounds like a great idea! It's always good to practice and then practice some more. Those books can be a bit difficult sometimes, but the usually are for different levels of artists. Keep drawing. ~Alex

      Hello All:   Thank you for the advice.  I know that I go back and see my doctor in March and will need to get labs done a week before so we can go over the results.   I have notice an itching around my breast and thought it was because of me wearing my breast forms.  Also I have notice that I did have a slight pain where it felt like it was on the bones, but when I put my breast on, the pain almost went away and felt comfortable.   Thank You   Amy

      My heart goes out to you, Jae. It's pure h___ if your spouse won't support you. I know from experience, my wife would have no part of it and demanded that I not dress that way, so I had to dress behind her back. That's hard emotionally and I completely understand how you feel. I guess I could have been the one to write that poem as it's my story as well. You nailed it!   Love, Brandi

      Hi Alex,  I got out my daughters 'how to draw furries' book last night and realized it is for serious artists, not beginners... I think the author was just trying to show off a little. I am just going to keep knocking out the same little body form and bunny body overlay until I can do it from memory, I try to draw one every night if I can, just to keep that pencil moving. I might have to explore more digital methods, but I would really just use that to color in the pencil sketch anyway... Hugs, Jae
