Hello sisters and brothers!
today was the day. my second birthday.
the last month has been a whirlwind of lab tests, consent forms, doctor visits… and scheduling snafus.
Wednesday was to be the day that I visited with my doctor. I love this doctor they are so way to talk to. So on Monday, something came up and I got rescheduled to later in the day. Then Tuesday happened the day I see my psychologist and just before my appointment the clinic calls to tell me the doctor has had an emergency and can’t see me.
at first I’m heartbroken. I was so very close…
but then, she is offering me an appointment with the mid level provider. That day! And it’s right after my psychologist appointment.
so I can hardly concentrate on my appointment with the psychologist. And we talk about my new birthday, and how I need to make it special and she asks me with a smile, are you ready to give up male privilege? And I answer that I can’t wait to give it away.
the appointment with the mid level is in short scary. I’m having to explain everything all over again and for a while it sounds as if we aren’t doing this. “Stay calm” I tell myself. And we decide that injections is the best way for me. She submits my prescription to the pharmacy and we scheduled my next appointments:
But now the frustration begins. Pharmacy A promises to have my prescription ready by 5:30 pm. 5:30… 6:00… 7:00 it goes from received to ready by… then delayed… to out of stock. Two components are actually cancelled. My sharps container and the needles! Of course this happens just before the pharmacy closes.
Wednesday still delayed with no estimate of time that I can expect it.
Thursday. I call around. Turns out another branch of the pharmacy had my estradiol in stock. But they don’t have anything to give it with… fine… give me my estrogen I’ll figure it out. And I find some legitimate needles and syringes sealed and in the package so still sterile.
I finally get my med. I’m so excited… after being ready to hurt someone all day as I tried to find someone to unlock my meds.
i’ve just taken my first dose of estrogen. I am happy. Kid on Christmas morning happy. My T was low. So low we are going to see if I even need t blockers. So I’m not taking any yet.
but I’m finally here. The end of
pretending to be male and finally starting my life as a woman.
happy birthday Mallory 🌺❤️
