Thomasina's HRT Journey
« on: January 18, 2021, 12:58:54 pm »
In Nov I tried the herbal route and continued until the beginning of Jan. After tasting the effects of even e-lite as some refer to it, I knew I was home and needed to do it safely and monitored. My mind went to places I had long lost and I felt better than after any run I have ever done. The nice part is I didn't have to work so hard :-). Learning that my runs may suffer was a difficult but worthwhile trade. The start of HRT for me was key to get in alignment with mind and body. False faces kill me inside and I could no longer ignore the internal pull with life getting shorter by the day.

Took finasteride and decided on injection to avoid liver and patches would be an issue for me running. Felt a little flushed 30-60min after injection and waves of feelings with both my body and mind. This could all be psychological but felt real. For 2 days I had a random mild headache out of the norm and my temperature regulation is more out of whack. Have a weird tingling down below that comes and goes after 3 days, difficult to describe. Had something similar years back after too much sexual activity. 

Measurements as of 1/15.
--Weight 163, Height 5' 7-1/2", Waist 33-1/2", Hip 36-1/2", Thigh 22", Calf 16-1/2", band 36-1/2", bust 37-1/2"

Included leg measurements as I have been running hard for 2+ years and all muscle in legs so wanted to measure the change. In fact I catch a hard time frequently when someone sees my calves, not an easy fit for boots and would be nice for a decrease.
Will keep updating as we go for a log and thanks for reading.

Thank you for the resources and wishes. I never liked roller-coasters so I decided to turn my life into one :), at least I can control this one a little.
Hugs received and reciprocated
