Transition Experiences: Nothing of note. I hardly left the house over the weekend due to being ill. With the divorce click ticking, I can now turn my attention to my transition timeline this weekend when I get a breather from kids and work.
Emotional: Really good, actually! Getting the divorce paperwork filed has been a huge stone removed from my path. I’m now almost completely unblocked for transition and coupled with the unexpected surprise of falling in love, I’m trending into a very positive space.
My manager also seemed pleased to hear that I’m filed and I thanked him for his patience with me, and he and I both acknowledged we were looking forward to having a more focused person doing my job. Can’t wait to tell him that I’ll have even more free mental cycles as we shift into summer!
For all the emotional shit around transition and relationship I’ve been slogging through for the past few years(!), it’s liberating to know its coming to an end. I have many good things going on in my life and I can hardly wait to spend more time on them than managing the crap like I’ve been doing for so long.
Physical: My appetite has taken a dive, similar to other periods of significant emotional change in my life, and I’m happy my weight is going down again.
Weight: 172 lbs.
Dose: 7 mg/day estradiol via tablets, split into AM/PM doses of 4mg/3mg.
