My blood test results are here. I have my fourth gender clinic appointment next Monday and, if all is well with them, the clinic will write to my GP to tell her to start prescribing estrogen. But there could be a hitch – one of the hormone results is off the scale.
Most transwomen are all too familiar with the trademark effects of taking estrogen – softer skin, fat redistribution, boobs, etc, etc. But there are loads of other effects that can kick in to a greater or lesser extent. I’ve been doing my research.
Every now and then, you meet someone who you really like – and you wonder if maybe there is something in the “everything happens for a reason” fate theory after all. I met someone through my work – and she’s turned out to be a brilliant trans ally and friend.
