I had my 3 month endo appointment today... AND I went as myself. When they took my blood pressure, it was elevated, I think because of how nervous I was. So, my bloodwork came back amazingly! My estrogen is at 71 pg/ml, up from 19.5, and my testosterone dropped from 474 to 56 ng/dl. Good news! Happiest I've been in a while.

Thank you! If not so big of a change, just be patient. I was prepared to say, well, at least it went down some. lol

OMG I am exactly the same way but I was mentally preparing myself ahead of time so my doctor said my levels were a bit different you know estrogen was a little higher testosterone was a little lower than normal and she said it was probably from my mental preparation but she's not a hundred percent sure I never really tried self-medicating so I know what I ain't that but yes I agree and he is still change

Now, that's interesting. Maybe that's a baseline for you? Who knows. But, that's cool. I hope to hear about your progress soon. :)

During the past week I have found the courage to come out to my colleagues. They were wonderful. I was invited out with the girls for dinner and drinks - nothing was weird in the slightest. One of my bosses when I told them replied, “we couldn’t care less if you’re male or female, you’re a wonderful human being”. Very nearly cried there and then.
After nearly 50 years of self-loathing, feeling like a freak and living in fear... I thank all those who have gone before me. You made it possible. XX

Dear Christine: 
Well, I have heard it said, it is a good day when you wake up and you can see yourself in the mirror.... and also when you read the obituary section of the newspaper you don't see your picture there.

Hugs and well wishes...   you are only as old as you feel???? ????
Oh, and thank you for putting up your Avatar/Profile picture ... It is nice to see it again.
Hugs,

Hi Sienna Grace,              19 July 2018

Congratulations BIG Time; That was a wonderful gift from your co-workers and boss.

The world is changing, people are becoming less judgmental and more accepting, thank God. There will always be the idiots. They are stupid people and unfortunately, they are too stupid to realize they're stupid and stupid cannot be fixed.

Your last comment brought tears to my eyes. It's an absolutely beautiful statement straight from the heart; thank you so much for posting it:
"After nearly 50 years of self-loathing, feeling like a freak and living in fear... I thank all those who have gone before me. You made it possible. XX"

Wishing you all the best that life has to offer. God Bless.

Best Always, All My Love,
Christine

I know that it could not have been easy for you to hide your true self for over 50 years even I had trouble hiding it for 38 years.  I do know that even though it had to be horrible it also made you so much stronger than anyone could possibly realize and just by posting here you lend your strength to all of the lovely ladies here including myself and I thank you for that.

Hello Sienna Grace

I think we have corresponded before on the Transgender Talk Board.

Congratulations on coming out at work and for the wonderful reaction afterwards.

I must say I am most moved by your post above.

I know how difficult it is to hide for so long; I only took action at 62 when I could take the GD no longer.

I note from your other posts you have been on HRT 9 months.

You may wish to take a look at "MTF HRT for Older" Thread on HRT Board.

Wishing you further happiness and success.

Hugs

Pamela

I'm so happy for you!! You're clearly on your way. I can see why you're so pleased with your testosterone AND estrogen levels - estrogen at 71 is awesome. The woman inside is emerging :) :) :)
