The Recovery Process: Weeks 5-6

The Recovery Process: Weeks 5-6

Before all this began, I was given an estimate of about six weeks recovery time. That is, six weeks to get back to being a normally functioning adult, more or less. Six weeks until “don’t push it, no exercise and like if you really need to have sex you can but take it easy and probably […]

The Recovery Process: Weeks 3-4

The Recovery Process: Weeks 3-4

Getting home from the hospital was an exciting prospect. No more being plugged into machines, or being woken up by nurses. More than that, it meant I was taking another step forward in my recovery, responsible for taking care of myself. And as much as I enjoyed having someone else worry about my food and […]

The Transition Process - 9 Months On Hormones

It’s that time again! It’s been three months since I last gave a HRT update, and nine since I started. So, what’s changed? How about boobs?

Trans Survival Guide: Passing vs Androgyny

When I first started to transition, I had a lot of trouble finding resources online that would be even a little helpful to me. That’s one of the reasons I started blogging about stuff here, just so there’d be a place where this sort of thing gets talked about. Today, I wanna write something a […]

It’s been almost exactly six months since I started hormone replacement, and you know what that means. It’s time for another update! Let’s start with the most obvious. Boobs. Booooooooooobs.
