Transitioning: How I though it was going to be vs how it went


Before I was able to transition I was confused, worrisome, did not know where to start and felt like i was the only one born like this (even tho i wasnt...clearly) I thought when i started transitioning it was going to be smooth sailing, however i knew that people would see me different and they would judge me more. From my experience i found out that it was complete opposite. IT WAS NOT SMOOTH SAILING, i didnt know all the hard work i had to do to become who i KNEW I was with all the drs appts, battling insurance, finding drs, trying to continue HRT even when i couldnt afford my meds. however, IT WS ALSO OPPOSITE THAN WHAT I EXPECTED FROM PEOPLE. They were more welcoming (in my experience, living in south florida people are more open minded) Those who i thought would shun me wanted to learn more and actually felt compassion and understanding.


ACNE

i didnt know how much acne i would get. i thought i was going to inject myself with testosterone and i would just wake up a sexy guy. however it didn work like that. i had so much acne it hurt to look in the mirror and im sure it hurt the mirror as well seeing this pimply face. It does go away and after 4 long years of acne i finally have my cleear sexy face i always wanted lol.


HEIGHT


i stand tall at 5'1. yeah that it. i thought i was going to grow at least an inch or just anything and i would be happy lol. nope. however because i am more confident in who i am and the way i look i do stand more straight and people did think i grew an inch but nope just better posture. so stop slouching rn.


DATING

"once im a guy i will get so many girls' those words replayed in my head cause that all i wanted just to be seen as a regular guy and date so many girls lol well i ended up in a couple pretty serious relationships. so i know i had potential but im such a great guy i wasnt whoring around.


HAIR:

did not even cross my min that i would be balding. i just never thoufht about it but jeeze it sure did happen. if you think youre thinning or losing hair do something about it asap because you probably are experiencing hairloss. I use Keeps to regrow and thicken my hair and it actually works for me, howver thats another medicine i have to take forver if i want hair forevr. this really sucks


QUESTION OF THE WEEK: WHAT ARE SOME THINGS YOU DID/DIDNT EXPECT DURING YOUR TRANSITION OR WILL YOU EXPECT WHEN YOU DO START TO TRANSITION?
