Jessica's Rose Garden

Jessica_Rose:
As many others have done lately, I have decided to start my own transition thread. I have several important events coming up and I want to keep them all in one place. Hopefully some of you will find a flower of wisdom or encouragement among the thorns.

I joined Susan's the day I started HRT, 23 March 2017. My intro post is here:

My four month HRT update, on my birthday!

I came out to my manager on National Coming Out day, 11 Oct https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,229369.msg2036456.html#msg2036456

I came out to a co-worker two days later:

After Eight months on HRT:

I needed some help telling my daughters:

I came out to my daughters the day after Christmas:

I also had a trachea shave in Jan 2018:

...and I recently realized that I don't need to be beautiful to be happy:

I started working on a name change in November. I sent my paperwork in for an FBI background check, and yesterday I submitted the request for a background check in Colorado. I was asked to indicate what my new name was going to be. I had given my daughters a short list of names I was considering and asked them what they liked. They both liked Jessica Rose, so that is what I put on the form.

In the past I would sometimes refrain from posting something because I did not want it to seem like I was hijacking someone's thread, but with my own thread I will probably post more about the day-to-day happenings in my life. Comments are welcome.

Jessica:
I love your name!  I’m looking forward to reading your future exploits.

Hugs from anther Jessica

Bari Jo:
Yup, I will be watching this one too.

Tomorrow I am going to a different laser hair removal salon - Milan. I had been going to Ideal Image and am seeing great results, but Milan is about 30% cheaper so I thought I would give them a try. Ideal Image is taking care of my back and face, while Milan will be doing my legs and stomach. HRT has thinned out my body hair, but there is still too much for my liking. Milan wants everything shaved before I visit them, which I should probably be doing anyway.

Hi Jessica 🙋‍♀️ You seem to be about 5 months in front of me with HT.  I have noticed nearly hairless areas on my lower legs in the last month and I’m hoping for more of the same.  What has been your experience with body hair loss from hormones?
