Manniversary! One Year on T.

Hard to believe that one year ago today I was getting my first T shot. Since then, so much more has happened. I’ve come out, lived as a man, had top surgery, and failed at growing a beard. This month I was taken as a man wherever I went. There were no “ma’ams” and the “sirs” were profuse and confident.

This month has been this little blue circle of happiness:

But check out how that’s progressed over the last year:

The combination of the changes from the testosterone and the top surgery have been incredibly satisfying.  I had the experience of seeing my face in a shop mirror yesterday and not realizing right away that I was looking at myself and not some random guy.

Is it what I expected?  Honestly, it’s hard to remember exactly what I expected.  It’s been slow and steady progress, and I see a long road ahead if the changes continue at this pace.  But I’m fine with that.  I’m out of the in-between world of second adolescence (despite my teen facial hair.)

But what do you think?
