Transition experiences: I’m in transition? Hard to tell from not having electrolysis in three weeks and the grunting, lumbering beast I see in the mirror.
I did go shopping for some bras tonight and was gendered as a man. I didn’t try any on and I’m sure that the goatee I’m growing out for electrolysis didn’t help either. Still, it’s disappointing that I don’t seem to be having the male fail going on yet.
Emotional: My wife had a needle biopsy Monday and while everything came back okay, it had been making everyone very anxious. Something I had hoped to do this summer fell through, and that’s bumming me out, too. Work sucks. It sucks so bad I’m ready to quit.
I need a vacation because I’m a total burn out downer case right now.
Physical: Feeling fat, weak, and out of shape. Bleah.
Weight: 184 lbs.
Dose: 5 mg/day estradiol
