Hi, I’m new here
« on: December 16, 2018, 11:02:14 am »
I’ve been secretly on and off wearing lingerie since a teen. Alway felt a sting connection to liking feminum things. Have thought about castration for a long time also as high testosterone wastes so much time on sexual thoughts. Seven years ago I tried T blocker for 2.5 months and loved how I felt without T in my system, just a nice calm feeling. I knew someday I needed to do it again and for a longer time. Fast forward, devorsed 5 years ago and kids grown up and with medical event that paralyzed me from the waste down so nothing works anymore and just in the way, it’s time to do something about how I really am inside. I’m now a week in on T blockers and estradot patches. Can’t wait to see how I feel with no T and higher estrogen.

Sorry to here of your being paralyzed, but it doesn’t seem to make you unable to live your life on your terms.  Disability is a matter of opinion.

Gale,

Welcome!


Chrissy
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.

@Gale
Dear Gale:
This is good news.
Please know that being "nervous" is normal for all of us, especially when finally being serious enough to start HRT.

When you have more to report regarding your HRT and the beginning of your HRT journey you may want to start a thread and post your update on the
             Hormone Replacement Therapy sub-forum   (HRT)
   LINK:  https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/board,42.0.html

and/or perhaps start your very own transition thread in
                Member Blogs
   LINK:  https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/board,326.0.html

I will be eagerly looking for your future posts around the forums.
Best Wishes to you,
Danielle
