I think doing something like this is quite useful, not only for yourself, but any others that decide to follow along as well. You are showing great strength and courage by doing this. Have fun with this experience.

The YouTube channel is very important to me. I mainly made it for my mental well being as despite having people on this site I struggle to find people to speak too IRL so at least here when I speak to myself other people can see too. 

 

I'll be posting more videos soon. :) I hope I don't run out of topics to discuss.

Hi Sophie,

 

The YouTube videos are a great idea.  Not only will they help you, but they provide other people with a realistic insight into what it means to be a trans person.

 

I look forward to future instalments.

 

Robin.

Sophie, when you do your videos, don't just think of it as speaking to yourself. I promise you people will be watching, some from within the TransCloset, some for pure curiosity, and others for HATE. The best tip I can give you about the HATERS is: Block them, don't take them to heart. You will need to develop thick skin for the HATERS. The sad thing about putting yourself out there for others to see, haters are more vocal and seem to out number your supporters. The truth is that you have more people supporting you than you know because they're afraid to speak up. I'm looking forward to watching you grow.

 

Best wishes, stay positive and safe.

@Mmindy I've not had any haters yet. 100% likes on everyday video so far which I'm very impressed by. However, I'm prepared for any hate. 

 

Internet hate I can handle, I've been on the internet beat for a long time. It's the IRL hate I'm concerned about but I'm sure as long as I have friends going through similar issues IRL then I'll get through it just with that support.

Just caught up on your videos.  You're amazing, Sophie.  I could never do that on YouTube and I'm further along.  That first one had me in tears.  So proud!  Keep them coming.

@Tori M awh sorry. It's usually me crying in between the cuts, it's often times so hard to hold it all together whilst I make these videos. 

 

@Just Lee I'll need some more of that courage to tell the rest of the family but im all out right now.

      I'm 38 and I haven't had my hair cut in 18 years, and have been on estrogen and testosterone blockers for 2 1/2 years. My hair goes about 1/3 of the way down my back, which is the same length it was before starting hormones.

      Hello. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong area! I just joined yesterday.   I'm going to get right to the point. After starting T over one year ago, my inner labia (Which were not small to begin with) Have completely disappeared. They're just gone. There's a barely noticeable ridge of tissue where they once were, and my outer labia are about 1/3 the size they used to be.    I'm not complaining, but I have never heard of anything like this happening whatsoever. I've heard about a loss of elasticity, but what the frick.   As for the other issue, I sometimes get ''cramps.'' I haven't had a period in a year, but I get cramps randomly without any schedule or predictability. Sometimes they're severe enough that I have to lay in bed with a heat pack.   I would bring this up with my doctor, but he doesn't answer my emails at all anymore and his office is hours away. Does anyone have any similar experiences? Is this normal or worrying? Thank you.

      Yes we endured an eleven day ice storm and the resulting outages years ago.  Furnace, water pump, water heater and refrigerator are all critical!  I have a transfer switch that allows me to swap over to the generator safely.  I'm not a prepper either but some things are a given when you live where I do.  
    • KathyLauren
      @Jani, I am glad you were well-prepared for the power outage.  Out on the west coast, a few years ago, we endured an eight-day outage caused by a major storm.  That motivated me to get a generator.    I made sure both that house and our current house are wired so that the generator can power anything on the premises.  Not all at the same time, of course, but fridge, freezer, well pump and the controls for the oil-fired furnace can all run off it, as well as the computer and the TV.    I don't consider myself a "prepper", but I do believe in being prepared for some of the more likely events, like storms.

      The only person other than my therapist I told was my primary care physician, I new that because of other medical conditions she would see the hormone therapy in my blood work.I wanted to see how I felt on the hormones before I told family.At about 6 months my eldest daughter said there was something going on with me and wanted to know if I was ill, she said I looked different to her.What I had not realized that with prior weight loss the hormone therapy had started to change my facial appearance somewhat.She was the first that I told followed by her sister and my 2 sons.The girls have been wonderful but the sons not so much.But now living full time everyone knows this is going to be permanent, and whatever time I have left I am going to live as Claire.

      Oh ok, that sounds easy. How do you record your files? In the studio or do you have your own recording software?

      Congratulations! Good luck with the new path! I'm sure you'll do great!

      Yes our hair tends to grow dependent upon a number of factors including our genetic makeup.  Here are the stages of growth.   Anagen is the active growth phase of hair follicles during which the root of the hair is dividing rapidly, adding to the hair shaft. During this phase the hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days. Scalp hair stays in this active phase of growth for 2–7 years; this period is genetically determined.   The catagen phase is a short transition stage that occurs at the end of the anagen phase. It signals the end of the active growth of a hair. The hair detaches from its blood supply during the catagen phase. This phase lasts for about two to three weeks while a club hair is formed.   The telogen phase is the resting phase of the hair follicle. When the body is subjected to extreme stress, as much as 70 percent of hair can prematurely enter the telogen phase and begin to fall, causing a noticeable loss of hair. This condition is called telogen effluvium.

      @KathyLauren That is so nice that you can effectively communicate about what you love and that people respond.   Keep going!   With the storm running up the East coast we had a period of high winds and rain in the early evening.  Lights in the house flickered a few times but it seemed we were safe.  But at 8pm the winds kicked up again and power went out!  I decided against lighting candles and went to bed at 9pm.  At 11:30 it was still dark, although the moon was full and it was very bright outside.  As it had been close to 4 hours I was concerned about my refrigerator.     I got dressed and went out to the garage to connect and fire up the generator.  I pulled it out and connected the underground cable to the house.  Thankfully it still had some gas in the tank.  I went out to buy more fuel, but it was already 12:30am and I didn't know how extensive the outage was.  Thankfully I saw the streetlight was on about a quarter mile from the house and I was able to find fuel at a local station that is 24hour.      After topping off the tank I sat in my car to cool off and listen to the radio.  About 1:30 I saw a power company truck pass by looking at the overhead cables.  I went to bed and awoke at 5am to see the power had been restored.  Great!  I went out to the garage in my night shirt to turn off the generator.  We don't generally loss power in the summer but the winds were really strong.  Thank goodness for the power crews!!

      In regard to "Secret 'o Life" isn't it amazing how some songs really hit the point and speak to us in a deep manner?   I've always loved the positive message in "Shower the People".
