One Year on Estrogen

We didn’t know we were a girl from a very young age in the same way as the oh-so-common narrative of what it means to be a transwoman because we were both male and female. We did know that we were a girl from a young age, but we also knew we were a boy too. Imagine how confusing that must have been when society says you must be either one or the other, and dammit you better be the one you were assigned at birth!

This is a relatively long post but really well written.  Throughout much of the post, Emma refers to both her female self and her male self as "we" and "our".  In her words, this is a  ...... twin-spirited existence we live.....

In this post, Emma discusses the past year of her life, since she began hormone replacement therapy.  In that year, her brain has changed, her physical appearance has changed and, indeed, her life has changed.  She says,  I am a completely different person than I was a year ago.

For those considering transitioning, Emma's One Year on Estrogen post will give you a good idea as to how your life may change.  She also includes several pictures, documenting the first year of her new life.

Great chronicle of the past year, Emma.  You rock!!
