    My recommendation letters have been mailed!

    The fourth one that has to be done with my family doctor is in the making and I'm supposed to see her just before Christmas for a medical exam!

    I should be able to have my first surgery soon :grin:

    Nik, my fiance, said while I was at my doctor appointment, my grandma used my PGPs. It's so refreshing!

    My new STP works. I know that's a little TMI but it was really annoying after my old one broke. Well, didn't break but it got so compressed that it was practically unusable. Boyfriend plans to repurpose my old STP for doing oil changes.

    And just added my uncle to Facebook. That's basically how I come out to people now. I just friend them on Facebook.

    I had a lady at work today look at me today while I was working and say "you should be glad you don't have to worry about these". She was buying bras. She was right, I'm glad that I don't have to worry about them anymore.. I don't think that she actually knew that I had to deal with them at one point...lol.

    The new manager at my workplace added me on facebook. She then asked who my sister was on my Facebook page. I have some old photos of me on there. She didn't realize I was trans until I explained it to her. Everybody in the break room was trying to keep from laughing while I was explaining it to her

    I figured out my label today. :grin: Demifluid (Gender**** isn't really a gender).

    I love diversity. I think girl clothes are boring. :grin::slight_smile:

    I let my facial hair grow out of pure laziness, and some morbid curiosity, but I have connectors now and can grow a weak chinstrap and goatee but it looks hella gross. I just shaved last night before going to bed and my face is all nice, clean and pretty now. :grin:

    I also attended a meeting at my local trans group yesterday, and we had a few new members - one of them thought I was a pre-everything trans woman, which was really nice to hear. Funny that I don't pass that often though.

    Coming up to a month on hormones in about a week and my chest has already started to become slightly prominent. That should be a good sign!

    No victories for me:frowning2:, no one knows I'm trans and I can't even dream of passing for at least another 3 years:frowning2:

    We all start somewhere. Maybe getting a piece of clothing or trying on lipstick or anything.

    I started small... and over twice your age. Have faith and be strong.

    I made the call, and now am waiting for a response. I'm so excited for this. On the flip side, my s***** has been coming in really nicely. If I can ever get my camera to be decent for me, I'll share a selfie of how my progress has been going over the past five or so months. I hope I get a killer beard when I'm on the T train.

    I told my father yesterday that I never felt like a woman and that I'm going to make the transition. He is not very happy right now, he just tolerates it, but at least I finally told him.

    You might have a look here:
    breast size
    This was a tip from a trans woman on the internet. I'd be careful with herbs...
    there are quite a few who said the massage was helpful...

    Adding more relatives, including my great-grandmother to Facebook (who I wasn't sure about coming out to). You know good things are happening when your great grandma sends you a Candy Crush request. :slight_smile:
