I'm Starting Gender-Affirming Care!

For those of you who don't know, I'm trans and came out on July 22nd, 2022. More more recently, I was able to get health insurance, and today marks my first day of gender-affirming care! A lot of it has been research and figuring out what works for me and what I have in mind as far as my HRT journey is concerned. Luckily I am blessed with a bevvy of wonderful GNC friends, all who know (or know someone who knows) a great deal more about these things than I do. So while it's been a bit of a learning experience, it's also been one assisted by teachers invested in a shared happiness; i.e., in helping a like-minded person find peace on her own journey towards self-fulfillment and -definition. For me, that means "titty skittles" (as my partner called them, haha); gonna start slow and introduce blockers after a few months, once I mark my progress:

Anyways, I'm posting about this to mark the event and celebrate it. In the meantime, I'm also continuing to work on my book; the second volume (the updated manifesto) is tentatively scheduled to go live on my website, January 2024! I'm excited to share that with you as well, and will post on here when it does!
