That Was Easy

I’ve been gone for way too long, I know (well, for my liking anyway).  I had full intentions to post at the end of last week about how coming out at work went, but obviously, I didn’t.  I think work caught up with me, and then I wasn’t feeling too well, so it kind of fell by the wayside.  Anyway, as the title of this post suggests, coming out went as smoothly as could be.  Check out my video for updates on how my coworkers reacted to the news and my first month on T.

(The first 7 seconds are weird and I don’t know how to fix it…but it’s good after that)

  1. YAY!!!!

    You know, I think the majority of people are really OK with our group of awesome people. The media wants to make it a big deal and the uber conservatives want to make it one, but deep down, I think people don’t care.

    I know that T effects are actually rather quick on their approach. You won’t have to wait 13 years as other boys have to. 😉 E takes a little longer to work. The T is just one hell of a hormone.

    Since you said guy “with big boobs” (which made me laugh), there will be a major adaptation among your coworkers. Not a bad one, don’t worry, but it will bring you attention. I had a friend who had her breasts reduced, since they were giving her back problems, and the amount of attention she received upon her return was crazy. She went from a D (or possibly some double letters in there somewhere) to a B. I got lots of attention, too, because I was the one she flashed them to and was asked if they looked and felt ok. Yes, I’m that non-threatening and always have been.

    Will await further updates. As for your video, tell everyone you were being creative with the intro. 😉

  2. I sure hope the T effects are quick-ish. Ideally they would just chill in my body until Nov. 21st and then BAM! all release on the 22nd. I can dream, I suppose…:-)

    And I can only imagine the amount of attention your friend received…I’m currently “some double letters” and I’ll soon be…well, zero letters! I’ve always hated being the center of attention, but this is going to be something that people can’t help but notice. Not to mention that now and previously, any mention of my chest makes me want to run and hide in embarrassment, so I’m not sure if I’ll have similar feelings post-op, or if I won’t care since I won’t actually have breasts anymore.

  3. You know I feel really selfish and a little self centered. I had been reading your blog but never read deep enough or long enough to see that you too had come out at work. I love your little video, it really gives a different kind of insight into your journey.
    Anyway congratulations on coming out, on being brave and on starting to shave (quite frankly I wish I had no hair it would save so much on electrolysis).
    Are you planning to post anymore videos? It would be interesting to hear how your voice changes. I spoke to a MTF trans today on the phone and she had vocal surgery sometime ago which I had never really heard much about but it was amazing she was just very feminine without trying.
    I am not sure, as a teacher, that i could take lots of time out for vocal surgery but it is another thing to add to the ever growing list of possibilities

    • Not to worry!

      I do plan on posting another video, actually sometime this week. It’ll be 2 months on T tomorrow and I’ve been told my voice has been changing, so we will see. And I consider myself very lucky to be able to take the time I need off for top surgery (only a week or two), but I can’t imagine what kind of healing process is needed for vocal surgery.
