    I'm sure many will still make honest mistakes, I only ask that if a mistake is made, the offended ask if the offender knows why that is a mistake. If they don't? Then that's a great opportunity to educate. If they do, then explain why it's offensive. If the offender continues to offend, then by all means fire away.

    Sorry but I do not know where that falls on the schedule. Is that a "yay, nearly there" or "sh-t, still so far to go"?

    Dumb question - how bad are the side effects if any? Will the dosage you're currently taking remain the same or will you ever be able to lower it?

    Not terrible, actually. There is occasional water weight, mood swings, cramping, and wanting to eat everything, but it's not so bad.

    The only thing is I thought breasts would materialize and they didn't.

    As for dosage, it depends on my endocrinologist. Currently on a 0.4 ml shot of synthetic estrogen once a week. And I take 100 mg dose of Progesterone as well.

    The testosterone blockers will stop once I have an orchiectomy at least.

    Ok, thanks for sharing. Keep venting here whenever you need to. We may be neanderthals but we wish you the best.

    In terms of my breasts, they're there. They might get bigger on their own, they might not. In the interim, I can either run marathons or have breasts. Can't have both right now.

    What I look like at 20 months. The smile certainly wasn't there 20 months ago.
