I think I got checked out by a creepy man.  He walked towards me while I was at work.  He looked about 80.  He stared at me; and looked me up and down.  I figured I must be in his way, so I moved.  He turned to leave, did a double-take back at me, leaned in and read the male name on my shirt.  He immediately left without another word.  Now I can only imagine the day when something like that is more annoying than exciting!

I had my first blood test with gender dysphoria written in the comments section.

Mine say something like "hormonal imbalance."
Yeah, too much testosterone and not enough estrogen.  ;)

Amanda, for the first time you gave an 80 year old dude something new in his life to complain about!  (It's his problem, not yours.  If he can't handle people that aren't just like him, he probably shouldn't leave the house, because the whole wide world is different.)

Well I'll start with the good, went to my first endocrinologist appointment, took my first Estrace, Spironolactone, and finsinrade pills today.

My wife and I had our worst fight in years this morning. For the first time she decided to stay at her moms. We've been in a rough place for a while again. We had talked about spending some time apart before. Well she said maybe we should spend some time apart before. I hope we can both cool off and come back together. God I'm not sure this time though.  :'(
Trying to find myself in this life.

A lifetime of depression and repressed emotions is nothing more than existence. I for one want to live now not just exist!

You did just fine.  That looks really good, like a polished everyday look.  Nice choices!

There is a local LGBTQ group in my small town.  I went last night for the first time.  Myself and 4 others plus a licensed therapist and an intern.

Not the experience I intend to frequent since I was the only "T".  Nice people, but not what I had expected.
1st Person out: 16-Oct-2015
Spironolactone start: 16-Mar-2016
Estradiol Valerate: 26-May-2016
Stopped all meds 01-Jul-2016
Restarted Spironolactone 26-Aug-2016
Restarted Estradiol Valerate: 02-Nov-2016









A haiku in honor of my grandmother who loved them.
The changes begin
Estradiol Valerate
Right on schedule

This isn't so much about taking big steps, but yesterday for the first time, I saw her looking back at me when I took a glimpse in the mirror. I've seen the real me before when presenting totally female, wig, makeup & the like, but never when I was totally dressed down with a beard shadow & boy clothes. Something about the look in my eyes or the smile on my face just seemed to bring Libbey out! Or maybe I'm finally just starting to settle into my own skin.

Found myself walking, heal to toe with hands resting high and across my tummy in a very casual, feminine way.
Nothing planed, nothing forced just being normal, natural, going about my business. Until I did of course... think about it. But it's nice to know i'm getting comfortable in my skin. It felt like a moment.
