I’m a trans woman. I have been dealing with, suffering with and generally sharing a flat with gender dysphoria for over 18 months now (although, let’s be honest, it was slowly creeping up and trying to let me know of it’s existence for the first 27 years too). Continue reading
So, a quick update really.
With my hormone levels not being quite where I wanted them to be I have spoken to my doctor and am now moving on to a Sandrena Gel form of oestrogen, rather than the Evorel patches. Continue reading
I’ve had a bit of a down/angsty week, which resulted in venting this frustration through a couple of blog posts. The first one is this piece on the NHS waiting list.

It has been almost 2 months since my last journal update and plenty has happened. Quick intro, I’ve got a job, but have gone back to work male; Laser is painful but working well; and I’m close to going full-time! Exciting! Grab a drink, sit down and read all about it. Continue reading
