That was really positive!



So, fears for nothing, my phone meeting with my new doctor was amazingly positive!

Things started off just right when she asked me my preferred name and pronouns. Great way to set the stage for the remainder of the conversation which, to be fair, was the usual dive into medical history (or lack thereof) and basic general habit questions. Happy, still, to be able to say I quite smoking 9 years ago.

What was really great, from my perspective, is that this clinic does it all with transgender clients: HRT, assessments, help with name and gender changes, GRC referrals, and more. It's really comprehensive and she was really good at describing how they work. It wasn't a long session, not even quite a half hour. but it was informative.

So, next steps... blood work. Feels like I am actually getting closer.

This is the Alice Cos Group , a dance group from China that features only males in their cast. They are all, to put it mildly, simply gorgeous and dammit, I'm just a little jealous! Admittedly, at my current age (let's just say that I go back a few decades and leave it at that) there is zero chance that I would ever be able to pull off the look even remotely as well as they can, but hey, a gal can dream! I'm also really jealous that they actually live a life practically straight out of a Fictionmania story; I would have leapt at such a chance at that age. Ah well, such is the dice of life. Anyways, a sample of their work:
