My journey back to Estrogen

<< < (13/14) > >>

Maid Marion:
I haven't had any issues presenting female in New England.
I've switched to wearing skorts now that the weather is hot and humid.

Full time now, going to work, gardening in the yard, going shopping, and going to the golf course.

A lot of people in town admire my rose garden.  It is gorgeous from Memorial Day to mid October.
I just had a lady knock on my door.  I shared tips on growing roses for about fifteen minues.

Mandy M:
That's great MM.

I'm afraid the situation at the moment in the UK is pretty horrendous. What might be true legally (at least for now) is not true culturally with trans hatred rising and not a day passing without yet another "anti-woke" attack on trans rights.I wouldn't dare go outside dressed femme at the moment because I don't have the confidence.  It's very sad :(

Mandy M:
Hi everyone,

Had a superb appointment today with my, new, endocrinologist. She was so lovely.

My estradiol is now in female range (yay) and the small amount of testogel I take each day isn't affecting that: just gives me the same kind of level a cis female would have. She also says that there's some evidence that my testogel is continuing to convert to estrogen in my system anyway.

There's also some evidence that I'm slightly gonadtropin deficient: that my brain is seeking more hormones. My GiC had already recommended that I raise my estrogen dose and my endo has backed this up. So I will.

More blood tests in six weeks and then annually from there.

One thing made me doubly smile: 'your breasts are enormous' she said. And it's true, they are.  :D

Mandy M:
p.s. Oh we also discussed going forward with vaginoplasty.

That felt like a very exciting moment.

We  must live in very different parts of the country, for I have never once experienced any negative reactions to how I am dressed (and I am legally female and dress as such each day). Even my daughter was learning about trans issues at school at the age of 12, and when I transitioned all her classmates were very very supportive.

I am not saying there are not individuals in the UK that are negative, there always will be. There may even be places that it would be ill advised to visit (some bars or clubs, that I wouldn't visit anyway, for example). However, it is very possible to be trans and out in the UK, thousands of us are. Those laws certainly go a long way to making the place safer.. and if not safer they give a massive recourse to obtain justice and that will deter most but the most retarded of society.
