Dose: 6 mg/day estradiol
Weight: 182 lbs.
Physical: Continued chest aches and tender breasts. This is very much related to my high estrogen levels, which I’ll talk about in a future post. I still haven’t been sleeping well.
Emotional: Touchy, anxious, and messy.
We told our kids yesterday that I was trans, and it was an emotional roller-coaster for everyone. (Another future post.) I’m trying to have a big cry, but it isn’t coming just yet.
The Christmas season generates all sorts of messy feels for me around family and myself. I’m trying to forgive myself for everything that I feel I should be doing and am not.
Tomorrow it’s off to navigate my mom’s house for Christmas dinner and I’m also trying not to stress myself out about what I’m going to wear.
