T + 6 weeks

Today, the first day of the new year, was the first self-administered injection at home. Easy, without anxiety or problems. The needle is 1 1/2 inches long, but I'm apparently not needle-phobic.

Changes noted: as all other sites predict, voice change is beginning to kick in. It's been hard to tell because I've had a bad cold/cough/almost pneumonia for just about... 5 1/2 weeks. But over the past several days the voice shift has become clear.

Other changes: a little bit higher energy level than without T; body scent as with earlier shots; genitalia growth (!)

Too bad they can't schedule puberty for a lot later in life. I'm finding this time around much more fun! Even better than a second childhood...
