Its strange, coming off and back on hormones makes me feel no different . Same with surgery , no great whoopee just seems okay and fits my past life brain. Strange how my brain works .
Fish curry today to make , done the vac and cleaning and its 11 am . My female cousin ,is popping in tonight and she is bringing alcohol . Very tempted to go to breakfast classic car/hot rod meet as its last one before winter lay off tomorrow , will see if she wants to come. Bacon and sausage baguette then !
It feels from afar like you really are doing so well hun! Go you! xx

Davina I am with Pammie.  You are doing so well.

"Its strange, coming off and back on hormones makes me feel no different . Same with surgery , no great whoopee just seems okay and fits my past life brain. Strange how my brain works.

I think you just feel normal and how fantastic that is!  No internal emotional clashing between testosterone and your body versus who you are and who you know yourself to be.

I am so happy for you!

Gave up on the breakfast run, my cousin didn't leave till late and then I had to dilate so it was nearly 9am when I woke. Just a little sore today, cooking French beans later to go with my fish curry. Need to find something to do later ,yawn-----

Hi Davina, I'm just dropping in to say hi. I'm so glad your surgery seems to have gone well and you're well on the road to recovery. It also sounds like you have good support from family and friends. I'm glad! Randi

My smartphone thinks it's smarter than me. It's probably right.

Randi makes a key observation, which is the support you enjoy, Davina. I too am glad for that!

Had a nice dinner off fish curry (cod , salmon and prawns in coconut cream) with green beans , potato and tomato curry and rice. Only prob is weight has gone up . Still a bit too sore on r/h side for long walks as it rubs and pulls. Almost zero bleeding now , just the one small spot. Need to empty my recycle bin, full of lube tube boxes!!! Still its lasting longer now just using the blue one.
Good frost this morning, clear pale cold sky today . No sun on my flat/windows till afternoon as west facing and this time of year there is not a lot of heat gained.

Had a bleed after walking the stairs, stopped and was dry over night again so think I will wait a few days before trying again . GIC video chat this morning , well not sure as no email link yet .
Must be careful how much I eat as weight gone back up a bit. Yet another day stuck in -----------
Update, video chat was fine. She did not know I had the op , another one in a few months time and then will get discharged.

Thanks dear, had another bleed last night before going to bed . Not sure why as just sitting, now I have to clean my bedroom carpet from some drips . Its the r/h side again , for some reason it doesn't seem to have healed or blood build up and leak from stiches?
Will still go shopping tomorrow as mum (bless her) got me the wrong chillies and yogurt . Must start getting stuff for Christmas as well.
Have to write an email to gender clinic for a letter for gender recognition certificate so I can change birth certificate, more faff !
No curry tonight as its faggots, mash, carrot, cauliflower , peas and gravy . Comfort food.

Managed shopping okay, showed the girls at my nieces business my surgery pics and they were impressed. It was the dont want to look but just have to that made me chuckle !
Bled a bit but no more than have done sitting down, just a bit sore at times and glad to get back and sit down.

Another busy day in, how much I do yet who knows but have a list of cleaning, washing and cooking . Only urgent one is the cooking for dinner.
Cold again, showers a bit ago but clear pale sky now and a north west wind . Brrrrrrrrr, had to turn heating up to keep flat warm so big electric bill time.

Glad I am staying in, its horrible out side. Blowing a gale ,wet and cold. Feel an improvement every day but still taking it easy as only 23 days since op . Hard bit is finding something to keep me occupied.
Booked my seat for hot rod club Christmas dinner in a couple of weeks time , it will be good to see my friends again.
