Day One

Hey everyone, here's a little video log for you!

Also, I have a cold.  That could explain the lower voice >.<

EDIT:  The sound and video are unsynched, I just realized.  Sorry 'bout that.

Rebirth Day

At 10:50am, I got my first shot of testosterone.  I was super nervous and excited, and now I'm so pumped for the weeks to come.

I started off on a low dose, and over the next few months I'll gradually work my way up to normal male levels.  Surprisingly, I didn't even feel the needle, and those things are scarily big.  The nurse showed Amber how to inject the T (because I have this thing where I can't watch needles), and then Amber did the shot! She did good (I didn't feel a thing, promise), and so she'll be administering the injection until I get used to it and can try to do it myself.

I can't really express how excited I am about this.  Suffice to say that I am ready for the changes ahead!

Big Day!

Well, the big day is close.  My first shot of testosterone is tomorrow morning.  My partner and I are going to learn how to do the shot, and then it'll be 50mg every two weeks.  I'm really freakin' excited. I haven't been this excited since high school graduation and getting into college.  I'm nervous too, yeah, but I've been waiting a year for this, and it's finally here!

Here We Go...

Hey everyone, I'm Shawn, and this is where I'm going to be sharing my transition.

It's been two years since I decided to start transitioning.  The social transition was the first and hardest thing I went through (still am going through, really).  

Now...I begin a whole new journey.  Physical transition is scary and exciting all at once, and I'm going to share my feelings and story with everyone throughout this process.

It'll be a wild ride.
