talked to my primary health care person about what i’d need to do to start testosterone based on her requirements- she isn’t quite familiar with transgender and transsexual junk so she told me she isn’t going to set anything up yet but she’s going to research and then contact me with what she’s found to try to advise me.
i think i’m her first transgender patient entirely. i totally understand her sort of reluctance to say anything yet? it’s not out of transphobia or dickishness, she’s just not familiar and does not feel comfortable making any judgments yet until she’s looked everything up.
i’m hoping she’ll be able to work with me on it because if i have to go specifically to someone who deals in hormone therapy and gender therapy i might be up shit creek without a paddle. since we don’t have a car and we live in the boonies… no hope of getting to anyone professional.
but we’ll see. i’m hopeful, for now.
