HRT: Weeks 5-7

Hi all! Been a little while, hasn’t it?

Wow, I’ve been caught up in all kinds of life events. I moved to my own place, caught up with old friends, working like a mad-woman, and have been performing like crazy lately. I’m not entirely sure how I keep balance of it all but I suppose the occasional cocktail helps. 😉

All that said, I’m here to give you an update on how my hormone replacement therapy is going. Here are the big things I’ve noticed:

  • Breast tissue growth: My chest has been more sore than usual, so I naturally assumed I was about to drop dead on the stop. Ok, kidding. One day, my arm grazed my chest and I could tell something was different. I felt around a bit (mind out of the gutter, you!) and noticed something that wasn’t there – a small “bud” underneath. OMG, they’re actually starting to grow!
  • Continued mood swings: The smallest things seem to get to me, even more so than before. I had my first instance where a small comment almost made me break down into tears. It’s only a matter of time before the inevitable happens and I go into a full-on Peter Parker-style cry-fest.

    A straight-up ugly cry.
  • Facial structure changing: I’m noticing that my face is thinning out a bit & features are getting just a bit softer. I’ll take it.

I’m coming up on two whole months of HRT next week (wow, who’d have guessed I’d have made it this far), and wondering if and when my doctor wants to schedule some follow-up blood work & assess my current dosages. He seems to be harder to get a hold of than the President, so I must be patient.

Until next time!
