Ellie,

Thank you for sharing.   :)

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Hormones progress: I have been offered an appointment on 3rd November 2020 for the first of the two consultations, so I can now book the second one which needs to be at least three weeks later but will probably be January.

Shame it couldn't have been done through primary care... Ah well. I think eventually it will be.

Breasts next year? Hoping :)

I have a date for the endo as well now - it's March next year. A long time to wait, but at least I now have that date.

I spoke about breasts in my last post. It blew my mind today when I filled my 36A bra completely!

I measured my body, and sure enough, there is now a 10cm difference between the size around the breasts and the size where the band goes.

OK, it may not be the case that I actually need a bra at this point - but the fact that I'm big enough to fill one is yet another indication of my trans nature! And that's not as if I needed any more!

And is that even before you start taking hormones?

You will know when you need a bra; they will start to giggle when you run or up/down stairs and you feel like you want some support.

@Ellie_Arroway
Dear Ellie:
Regarding boobs and when a bra may be needed, here is a "test" that has been handed down by mothers to their teen daughters.......

I had posted the following last year and perhaps on several discussion threads but here it is for your thread.
           
                    "The Pencil Test"
     For anyone growing female breasts it is always a
     good milestone to pass when one can place a
     pencil under the breast in the inframammary crease
     and let go of it,
     If the breast can hold the pencil then that is cause
     for celebration, it means that one is really growing
     breasts and one is most likely to need to wear a bra.


check out the following thread on this link:

Hugs and well wishes,
Danielle

And is that even before you start taking hormones?

It is!

Maybe it partly explains my dysphoria? I don't know. My waist-hip ratio is 0.8, right in the middle of the "ideals" for women and men. I'm a rectangle, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if I approach or even attain hourglass after going on hormones... I don't know how much the waist-hip ratio is likely to vary on hormones.

You will know when you need a bra; they will start to giggle when you run or up/down stairs and you feel like you want some support.

I don't need a bra right now. I do find one useful for reducing discomfort while running, however.

My understanding is that nobody actually has a medical need for a bra... which makes sense really.

That is nice and affirming.  Congratulations!

Hi all,

It's been a little while since I've been here.

Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by life and have to take a step back. This has been one of those times.

I'd just like to allay any concerns that I might not be OK. I am coping OK. I am still working.

Hopefully I will get back to normal fairly soon.

Thanks for all the love and hugs you all offer!

Ellie
