Today (Saturday) is my 2 year HRTversary.
Thinking a little tonight about how monumentally unhappy about my body i was two years ago.
And how incredibly different it looks, and feels to live in, now.
I still have a hard time with a consistent mental self-image of anything other than the adult body I got used to seeing over decades.
But looking at myself in the mirror even just these last few weeks I actually believe I see a different person. A woman.
HRT is amazing. Body alchemy.
@squiggy It really is. Congratulations.
@squiggy So proud and happy for the journey you've been on!
@densetsu thank you! It is strange to be so public about myself, but the public nature of this part of transition is sort of inseparable and can't really be entirely private. So might as well talk it out…
Seeing other people talk about their experiences helped me get the comfort I needed to understand myself, so it's also paying it forward…
@squiggy I'm so excited for you and feel so lucky to have known you through this part of your life.
@lawremipsum I'm puzzled that Eugen hasn't yet come out, TBH. =:)
@porsupah while that would be fitting, I also sort of relish the notion that it was all just an incredible blunder by some cis person who *thought* he was just coding up some communications protocols and web interfaces, but accidentally wrote software for crushing the gender binary.
