Back to Rain, and... wow. :D

Once again, I'd like to back up the realism here by saying this is more or less how my first endo appointment went. Lots of talking. Some tests that I chose not to go into for the comic (though "bloodwork again" in panel 3 is meant to imply it happened once already). Then all of a sudden, bam! Prescriptions. XD

The only real difference is I didn't glomp my doctor. It might've crossed my mind, but knowing me, I'm sure I was worried about it being inappropriate. XD

I've been having a rough 24 hours, had a huge fight with my Mom that I won't go into detail over, but I needed this, something positive to lift my spirits. So happy for Rain!

And yeah, my endo appointment went about like this too. (though I had to wait 3 months for my dose to be raised, and I'm hoping to have it raised again in January at my 10 month mark) pretty laid back, a few questions and boom, hormones! Now if only these titty skittles would work faster. :P

Yippie!!!! I'm so happy to see this -- I can imagine how Rain's feeling right now!

It's part of endocrinologist training. Analysing blood chemistry and bracing yourself for sudden tacklehugs.

Yeah tbh mine went about as easy. of course, for some it can be a lot harder. I know someone whose doctor wouldn't do the bloodwork.

@Jacy Em Happy Birthday!

I couldn't find a local doctor at all who would see me. It's nearly a 7 hour drive round trip, over 3 hours each way to a large city where I could find an HRT endo, so I'm DIY. I do not recommend doing that at all, but I could no longer wait.

YAAAAYZ. *happy, happy, joy, joy, bouncy, bouncy* dance time!

I'm sorry I might be reading this wrong, but Dr Ravioli? Or is my dyslexia acting up against hipster names?
BlackSocks 21st Dec 2016, 9:13 PM edit delete reply
I read it as Dr. Raviede, but I too have had troubles in the past with the written word. I also have absolutely no idea how to pronounce that.

I glomped my therapist the last appointment (she approved my order for change of gender).

Huge grats!!

I meet with a psychiatrist tomorrow. Hopefully this is good luck for either a prescription (weirder stuff happens; I'm already self-medicating) or endo referral or back to the LCSW who will be my therapist through the next phase of transition.

In any case, this is the closest I've been to that piece of paper. Also, and equally important, closest I've come to diagnosis and treatment of my sleep and attention problems.

And huge hugs of congrato Rain. HRT is such an amazing, I've deep and spiritual experience - well, it's the gift of the right puberty.

Yayyyyyyyyyy :D

I just wanna send a huge good-luck-and/or-congratulations to everyone sharing (and/or not sharing! all zeh peeples!) their struggles and successes and soon-to-be appointments! Including Rain of course :P

(and Reimi, "titty skittles" is a beautiful phrase x3)

I didn't want hormones, but when I saw my doc, he probably would have given me a script for T after just a physical and basic bloodwork. And for top surgery, it was like...2 visits? Before my therapist was cool with writing a letter for me. Super low key and easy. (If only my insurance would be low key and easy but nooooooooo)

This is pretty much how my endo appointment went too lol
Lex-Kat 23rd Dec 2016, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
This is how my Endo went as well, minus the glomping. Though I did want to. I think I even cried, once I was outside the building and overcame the initial shock.

I've seen Fem-n-Ms and Titty Skittles.... hmmm....

I'm not trans, but bloodwork is something that i can relate to. I have to get it done about every four months to monitor the medications i've been taking since i was 5, most people don't realize that the pill you take can absolutely destroy you from the inside if something goes wrong.
