Grs recovery (mental and emotional), Madoka
Madoka spends like ten-and-a-half episodes out of a twelve episode series NOT being a magical girl. Not sure if she wants to be, or sure if she's ready, and faced all the social and internal pressures of doing it for The Right Reasons.
So in as much as Magical Girl stories are metaphors for transition, Madoka, in particular, is a story of someone who transitioned "late."
I've joked that because they're using a giant wad of material as a bolster to apply pressure to the surgery site, it looks like my package is bigger than ever and they obviously did the wrong thing. Like, literally it is hard to use the tray table at a useful height without bumping it.
My mom came to visit yesterday and made the same joke. "Nice package," 😂
Today is the last day with my prosthetic cotton package—which is apparently sutured directly to me—it comes off tomorrow.

Me: "I had my perineum remodeled, because I wanted something more open-concept."
@t54r4n1 : "...on the next Gender Flippers."
They seem to respond to me being "cost conscious" with confusion.
I got this plastic contraption to work out my lungs while I'm in bed. They're all super confused when I'm like "hey let's make sure my insurance will pay for this."
"Oh we usually just 'give' it to you when you leave." Uh huh, sure. I'm sure SOMEONE is paying $50-100 for this thing I just want to make sure it's not me holding that bag six weeks after I leave.
(Watch me get a bill for it after multiple attempts)
I have "perfectly normal" junk today 🏆
Lewd, genitals implied, mnpol
Jokes that hit different all of a sudden.
The amazing @t54r4n1 replaced the picture of jesus in my room with this:
It's fine actually because I can just not connect to the internet and then no update is needed 😆
It's just badly designed and that makes me angy
