So, fun fact: TODAY IS MY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of starting my testosterone blocker, Spironolactone! This glorious little pill that I pop twice daily tanks my testosterone to hell (where it belongs!), and I couldn't be any happier to have it in my life. It also happens to be my 8 month anni of being on Estradiol aka TiddieSkittles™ (estrogen). Swipe right to see what the last year's worth of HRT has looked like for me! 😊 The first pic is my serum testosterone measurement from my most recent blood test. The normal male range for healthy, nonobese males (BMI <30) between 19 and 39 y/o is roughly anywhere from 264 to 916 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter)(smol bit per smol liquid bit). So the fact that my levels register at less than 3 ng/dL means that these here drugs are doing their job! 🖤🖤🖤 And just in case you were curious (@other trans friends & nurses/nursing students) here's the breakdown of my serum T levels over the last year vs. my drug dosage: Start: 712 ng/dL 1st quarter @100mg Spiro: 700ng/dL 2nd Q @200mg Spiro, 2mg Estradiol: 26ng/dL 3rd Q @200mg Spiro, 4mg Estradiol: <3ng/dL 4th Q @200mg Spiro, 4mg Estradiol: <3ng/dL Data is nifty af. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk. Disclaimer: I took forever posting this because I was helping my roommate/landlord fuck with the washing machine. As I predicted, I did nothing to remedy the problem, but at least an attempt was made. Technically my 1 year was yesterday now... #anniversary #oneyear #oneyearanniversary #trans #transgender #transgirl #transwoman #mtf #girlslikeus #lgbt #lgbtq #pride #transpride #wontbeerased #transvisibility #thisiswhattranslookslike #thisiswhatdatalookslike #thanksforcomingtomytedtalk

I tried something new tonight and changed my make up look without starting over. I deepened my daytime look, added eyeliner and a bolder lip . . . . . #transgender #trans #transgirlsrock #transwomen #girlslikeus #greeneyes #transisbeautiful #transgenderpride #trans #momentsintransition #translife #mtf #transvisibility #thisiswhattranslookslike #wontbeerased #lgbtq #lgbt #pride

so ready for my t consultation tmrw

12th shot. 11 weeks on T. I was reflecting back today on an online friendship I had in college when I was about 19. A friend of mine that I only knew through the internet came out to me as a trans man and described his experiences and feelings about his own gender. Up to that point we had both identified as ‘lesbian’ and somewhat ‘butch’. Once he told me about his experiences I tried to tell him about my own experiences of gender and my identity and how they were somewhat similar. I tried to open up the idea that maybe, just maybe I was trans too, of a sort (not the exact feelings he had), and that I had some gender feels that I needed to figure out. I had never said so before to anyone. He shut me down, and hard. He told me that I was copying him, that I was just butch and cis and it wasn’t the same thing, and to stop talking about it and trying to be like him and glom onto his experience as a trans man. I listened to that. I let him shut me down until... basically last year, 2018. I let this insecure teenager tell me I was wrong and define me and tell me that I couldn’t possibly have feelings about my gender because they didn’t match his. So I just bumbled along in the sort of fitting shoe of “butch lesbian” and then “bi drag king” or whatever I was doing. Finding a thrill in wearing “men’s clothes” and “doing drag” every chance I got to... getting weirdly angry when people called me a “girly girl” or a “lady.” I’ll never find that former online friend again. I’m sure they’ve probably outgrown their insecurities since then anyway and have no idea the negative impact they had on me. It isn’t important that I find that person, really. The lesson I take away from this is that other people’s trans experience doesn’t have to mirror mine exactly. It doesn’t have to look like or feel like mine. People’s exploration of their gender is valid and I support it, and always will. Because shutting people down is devastating and serves no good purpose. That’s why transmedicalist/truscum people who insist that there are ‘right ways’ to be trans are wrong and they should be quiet... (continued in screenshot second pic)

Laurie Frankel did such an amazing job writing a narrative about a family that has it's flaws, but loves and supports each other through them. The characters were written so well that I felt like each of them exists in real life. This book has become one of my go to recommendations for sure. Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thank you @desmoineslibrary for inviting @laurie.frankel to Iowa as a part of the AViD series this year. Excellent choice! 📚♥️ #ThisIsHowItAlwaysIs #LaurieFrankel #booklove #fivestarreview #bookreview #wontbeerased #representationmatters #buddyread #buddyreads #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookaholic #goodreads #avidseries #bookrecommendation #fivestarread #diverseliterature #lgbtqbooks #instabook #booksbooksbooks #bookphotograpy #hellosunshine #hellosunshinebookclub

CW: dirty conversations So one of my besties said: “Yep, when you’re counting you sound like a phone sex worker with one of those husky ‘call me now’ voices. You could make a mint if you ever needed a side hustle this month! Get it while the huskiness lasts! Hehehe” and I decided to run with it.... enjoy!
