boy birthday

oh and not to try to outshine auditorium on her day, this is also a birthday of sorts for me: nine years ago today I got my first shot of T.

boy was I ever nervous. three days later I had a panic attack.

it was a rough start. but I'm so glad I did it I can't even begin to tell.

ah yes. once I knew this was right for me, I was like come ON let's GO. I did have some worries about what T would do to my personality, but having never had a drug-phobia before ;) I just figured if I didn't like it I'd stop.

suddenly a lot of stuff made sense and seeing loren's pictures was like being hit in the head with the possibility that what I had dreamed about for years was possible. I don't really know what made it seem so unreal to me before--other issues obscured this one so I didn't do any research--but immediately upon seeing the pics I recognized myself. that was the revelation.

Yes, when I met Lou in 1988, I knew. I saw him and thought, "Damn, if it works that well (T), then, OF COURSE I will do this!"

That's the value of having images out there, they speak volumes.

Congrats on your T-birthday! I also had some kind of intense panic reaction a da or so after the shot. I was just so excited! And, scared, and excited! It was a revelation and a complete trip.

We are just the "nervous" type I think.... : )

Yea, about Fairy Butch, she is pretty damn masculinized now, although I have noticed some change back. But, I guess it's true, that a lot of it is irreversible. I do think that is true about the revelation prior to top surgery, interesting. Well, better safe than sorry. Those don't grow back!

Well there's always the ftmtf transition!
