Sweet heartfelt page because Rain is adorable. XD

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but hormones have made me cry a lot. Just something that happened with me. Admittedly, I was always kind of a crier anyway, but I get set off even easier now. It’s not always a bad thing though. Actually, I’ve become more likely to cry when I’m happy (I never used to happy cry). I also laugh easier. And I reach the point where I laugh so hard I start crying now too. Really, I guess I just emote more.

In fairness, I kinda made Rain more of a crier than me even (pre-hormones, anyway). I too wonder how she’ll be when she’s on them.

Aww, I've had girl hormones all along as a cis but I never get to laugh-cry. :c But if this is Rain on pre-hormones, I can't wait to see her actually on them. You could probably dedicate a couple Rain Delays to her crying over the smallest things.

I wonder what ringtone Rain has? Black wing Kanimari(did I spell that right?) Or maybe an obscure song

You know, I've never actually determined what kind of music she's into. She likes anime/manga a lot though, so maybe J-pop? Perhaps she found a leak for the upcoming Kaminari anime's opening theme. XD

Hey, I love Rain soo much. Just wondering, what is Emily texting about, she still doesn't know, right?
Jocelyn 3rd Oct 2013, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

She doesn't know. But she's still aware of the fact that Rain's not going to be in school today. It will all become clear later. I promise. ^_^

As far as I remember, Emily still doesn't know that Rain is trans. Her text seems out of place~? :P

I always have to giggle a bit when I hear other people talking about being more emotional / crying more easily after starting estrogen, especially thinking back to what people told me to expect before I started HRT, because for me it's very much been the other way around. T made me moody and emotional as all hell (and still does if i mess up and let my prescription run out a few days before I can refill it)!

lol Rain XD Wouldn't be complete unless she's crying for one reason or another ^_^

I've noticed that HRT actually hasn't increased my likelihood to cry like that though. I rarely ever cry, and that hasn't changed much over two years on hormones. In fact, I'd say I cry a lot less, since I have a lot less to be sad about. But still... Is that normal? Is it just because I'm stuck at a low dose of estradiol?

I really like Jessica as a character. I just wanted to say that.

Also, don't worry. I was born female and my hormones still make me cry a lot. ^^;

I'm wondering how it will be for me, thinking about the Future. By the Way, I Know a Bit offtopic, but for the Future I was thinking about wether I May think about seeing a Speech therapist Not only for my Problems in Case of speaking, I stutter, but also in Case of vocal Training. Do you think it May Be Worth a shot? I keep on struggling and I don't want to Risk a surgery, which would have a Speech therapy As a necessity afterwards. Sorry, for the Long question ^^;

I've been practicing my voice for a while now. You'd be surprised how much an hour or two a day will make in just six months(gotta wait before I can even begin HRT, may as well get the voice down first).

Whenever I cry, it is more like a whimpering. For whatever reason, whenever I get sad, I just become very quiet. I don't think I know someone else who is like this, but I also haven't had a lot of times when someone was crying around me.

favorite page.

I cry a lot (I'm FtM Pre-T) and laugh way easier than my dad and brother do. And I laugh cry far easier than my brother. I hope I don't stop laughing as much when/if I go on hormones.

I nearly never cried before estrogen. But now I can cry at the simplest things, happy or sad. It's been pretty great ^_^. Yay for crying!

Heh. Jocelyn, I am the same way. Your comic has caused all sorts of tears (of all varieties).

Chiming in because I too am a crier and a trans nonbinary woman, who will likely eventually get HRT (funds mostly...) and will def become an even bigger crybaby when I do.

As FtMish (AFAB but male sometimes, nonbinary other times) on hormones for... I should know this... I think 7 years? I can say I emote about the same as before but tears happen less often, except tears of laughter. And yawning. My eyes dribble when I yawn and always have. I get sad or mad or frustrated but I don't cry when I do so any more. Don't know why.
