Yesterday marked my second (month) anniversary with T. It’s been exciting so far, especially as I’ve seen the most changes in the past two weeks. Check out the below video to hear about some of those (and hear how my voice has definitely, albeit barely, dropped) and see how my endocrinologist appointment went.
