Transition experiences: Wore an obviously women’s top and shorts to the beach and it was no big deal. Even a year ago I would have been petrified to do so.
The closet dysphoria is becoming harder every day to deal with.
Emotional: A hot bucket of messy oozings that I won’t pour out here, but it mostly revolves around my impending divorce.
Physical: I’m really noticing my decreased stamina with things. I become winded sooner than I used too and I’m much more achy the next day than I used to be. I notice it the most in my legs. Maybe it’s just advancing age…
Weight: 178 lbs.
Dose: 5 mg/day estradiol
