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!
