We are a go!

The day finally arrived!!! Yesterday afternoon, I got my prescription for HRT meds! Yayyyyyyy!!!  Today is officially day number two and honestly don't feel any changes yet, I know I will soon. The info I was given when I got my first intake appointment (as well as the doctors yesterday) told me that I would probably be a few months before any changes would occur.  The doctor yesterday took my measurements (height, weight and chest, waist and hip lengths) to help keep tabs on any progress, growth and changes.  However, a friend of mine who's been on hrt for much longer told me that I would start to feel changes in feelings and mind within a week or so. Looking forward to it :)    I plan on using this blog to keep everyone updated on my progress as I keep moving forward.

I did, however, discover a slight problem.  The hormones themselves right now cost around $41/month and I only have funds to cover about 3 months worth in total, until I find employement.  And that has not been…

Lesson

So...learned an interesting and kind of painful lesson today.  I had an appointment today to get some bloodwork done (so I could get started on hormone therapy) and arrived to discover the clinic was closed.  I tried phoning all the numbers I had, but got no one.  So, I decided to leave a message with my therapist (who works through the same clinic) in hopes she would return my call soon.  Usually, I would chalk this all up as a minor inconvenience, but it hit me harder than I expected.  I decided to grab a coffee while I was downtown and just let my head process all this.

My mind and emotions where just starting to swirl as I sat down.  In the back of my head, I figured this shouldn't bother me like this.  I tried to think about the why and things started dawning on me.  Today was supposed to be the day that I got my bloodwork done. At the end of the month, I would come back for the results and start hormone therapy and I realized that I was really looking forward to starting the…
Hello all :) Welcome here.  As you can tell, I decided to create this blog account. Why?  More or less to just journal down my thoughts and experiences and to share them with you. I am also not working as yet, so I wanted something to do.

For those who may not know, I have been exploring different gender possibilities in my life for the last 5 or 7 months.   How it all unfolds and works out, I don't know yet.  At times, I feel comfortable with who I am and what I am and other times I can feel this pulling/desire towards other things.  I know this doesn't sound all that clear to some but, like I said, I've basically just started allowing myself to express different sides of me.  The desire to explore this has long been there.  Guess you could say since I was around 12 or so.  But, I digress.  That is a story for another time when I have more and clearer answers.

For know I just thought I would introduce myself and give some background info.  My given name is Curtis, however…
