I can hardly believe it’s been four weeks since I began HRT.
No, really, I can’t believe it, because nothing’s really happened yet. Other than last week’s observations, I really haven’t felt much this first month. Is my skin a little softer? Maybe, though it’s hard to tell in the cold and snowy weather we’ve had. Is my hair changing? The hair on my arms and legs does seem to be growing more slowly after shaving. Am I thinking differently? Only when I look in a mirror; I look at myself now and I’m more confident in my appearence, more happy with myself, and more able to see the woman in the mirror instead of a man. But that could just be psychosomatic.
I just have to keep reminding myself that this is a slow process. The SOC only list one effect before month three on average, and I’ve already gotten that one. All good things to those who wait. In the meantime, I keep downing my pills — ALL of my pills — and hoping for the best.
I get my blood tested later this week and, according to my doctor, a likely increase in E. I’ll be sure to let you all know the results.
