Sworry for my lack for substantive postage the past few days … I’ll try to get you caught up on my misadventures. 🙂
For now … we’re talking last Friday …
I did the work thing in the AM and then did a little car ride to Ann Arbor for my semi-annual physical and series of tests as part of the University of Michigan Comprehensive Gender Services program requirements …
My doctor doctor is great … first, she’s from England, so she’s got that kick ass accent; second, she’s just totally kewl as far as a doc could be – treats me with respect, easy to talk to, knows her stuff, works the insurance system; and, thirdly, she tosses me compliments that I readily accept.
Anyways, physically, apparently I’m still fit as a fiddle … so that’s good I guess. 🙂 All my scripts were renewed … though we’re going to give a Climera patch a run as my form of estrogen. Usually I take 8 mgs of Estradiol tablets daily and in an attempt to increase their effectiveness and reduce possible damage to my liver, I place the chick tabs under my tongue to dissolve (that’s referred to as taking them “sublingually” in med-speak). It’s really not that inconvenient, but is a bit tiresome as it interferes with my opportunity to immediately consume coffee upon waking up. Anyways, I was gabbing with a friend the other day and she mentioned she had some nice breast growth after going with injectable ‘mones, so I thought I’d give the patch a try as though I’m not quite mooding yet to do the body poking, I figured that it might be a more direct hit of hormones than I’m getting now. We’ll see how I like it. I have a script for a 1mg Climera patch. It’s supposed to last a week at a time … though I’m going to be doing two patches simultaneously.
I am a little concerned about the timing of my desire to mess with my hormone intake regimine … I’m very accustomed to my level of girlnesss now … which is nice. I’m really not wanting to go through the emotionally puberty again that I experienced the first time my body had to get acclimated to my estrogen. (You know … the “LOL crying for no reason at all ROFLMAO sob sob sob LOL I I I I’m soooo …. HAPPY This is the kewlest … saddest, most horrible … LOL … day. I’m sooooo pissed !!! ” phase.) Oh well, we’ll see what happens.
Oh yeah, and if anyone needs an MD in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area … let me know, I’ll give you the name of mine … she rocks.
