I won't drink to that


I hit a major milestone this week, one that isn't specifically about my transition, but is definitely related to it and I am super excited because of it! Enough that I won't drink to it...

So, in previous posts I have commented about where I was with alcohol consumption prior to starting HRT in July. A major goal I had in this journey was to bring my consumption levels below the maximum recommended weekly intake for women, which is eight.

This week, for the first time since I graduated College, I am below that number. That is cause for celebration for me, because in one week I will have had seven drinks and, before July, that's a hair more than an average evening.

Now, I recognize that this is just a major signpost on a longer journey, but for me, the goal was to bring my consumption under control and turn from a daily need into an occasional treat. I think I am well on the way to making that happen.

Rather amazing what becoming happy in yourself can really do for you.

Not Controversial: He's a Bigot

Incredibly disappointing, and deeply frightening, to see that the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives have allowed a bigot to testify as an expert on a subject that he has no expertise on.

Two months!

Time flies! I wouldn't necessarily say "when you are having fun" with that, but it's actually been pretty good, especially as the weather is getting better!

Life has been busy lately and part of me is wondering how it got there!
