I could be starting spiro soon.
The doctor was kind of intimidating at first. I think it was because she was trying to make sure I really wanted to do this, to set the proper expectations for HRT, and underscore the seriousness of this decision.
By the end of the appointment, she was very supportive, so I must have had the right mindset she was looking for.
Next step is some lab work, and then we’ll see…
I thought I would be more excited or nervous or something. I do know I am very glad to have taken these steps towards some sort of transition. I think regardless of HRT, I will continue to work on my voice and mannerisms, my clothing choices, experimenting with hair and makeup, and all the other things I’ve been keeping away from all these years.
I think if anything, I feel like there is a weight being lifted off my shoulders.
