    Last night was a big step forward. As the title implies, I finally started hormones. There was a mishap at the pharmacy so I got them later than I wanted, but now I finally have them.

    Honestly, I was excited throughout most of the day, and then when I finally had them in my hands, I was scared. I was hit with a wave of anxiety that even had me process some passing second thoughts. I was told by other trans people that second thoughts tend to be common because of how intimidating this journey can be.

    Change in general is scary. Especially the kind that has to happen. And that applies to transition I'm heading down a road I know is gonna be worth it overall, but things have been moving with forward momentum kinda fast. I went to my HRT appointment now I'm really doing this. But I ate my dinner and popped those titty skittles in me. (starting out on orals, may switch to injections down the road)

    It's happening. And oh, here's some pics of me as I chronicle this journey. Day 1, Month 1 on HRT.

    Yaaaaaay!
    I started my own hormone treatment just an hour and a half ago.
    I had a bit of an awkward reaction too, but physical, not mental. My tummy got a little bit weird.

    It's funny that we started less than a day apart! :D 
    We can keep each other updated and support one another! I had always dreamt of having an estrogen buddy lol !

    My hormones are a gel that you apply on the skin. In France, there is also a patch to stick on the skin.

    That's awesome! The best of luck through your journey as well. I am very happy for you :)  I questioned my gender in the past and I was scared to death (I decided to identify as non-binary). I admire anyone with the courage and strength to do what you are doing.

    Also
    that made me snort, I haven't heard that one before
