HRT: Week 24

Hi folks!

Here we are again. After a few weeks of switching things up on my blog, let’s get back to basics with another weekly update on my hormone replacement therapy.

I seem to have hit a growth spurt of sorts. Things I hadn’t felt since a few weeks after starting hormones, like pain in my hips & sore chest, suddenly came back. More importantly, I seem to have finally reached the point a lot of trans-folk refer to as “second puberty”. Aside from STILL being constantly hungry, I’ve noticed a sudden change.

That change? ACNE!!

Not only did it sneak up on me, it hit me with all the force of a sixteen-wheeler. The breakouts are more than a little embarrassing, and now I have to kick my skin care game up a few notches to ensure my face doesn’t feel like a pizza.

My complexion, right about now.

I’m REALLY hoping this subsides in a few months. Meanwhile, aside from proper skin care, I may need to slow down on my performances just so I don’t abuse my face with heavy makeup.

And I had such a nice complexion too. Ugh. Well, until next time friends!
