One Month In
It's been one month (four weeks) since starting testosterone.
Things I've noticed in the past two weeks since my last T blog are muscle twitches and soreness in my arms and legs - especially my calves. The dizziness first thing in the morning is gone now, thankfully. My sensitivity to sunlight has increased, giving me a really nice tan mostly on my arms and legs where I apply the testogel. UV sensitivity is a side effect of testogel so I'm not surprised by this development.
As far as I can tell, there haven't been any other changes. My voice sounds the same to me and there haven't been any changes with my body hair, although I know these things will take several months before they become noticeable.
I've started a fund raiser to help raise money for top surgery as well. My goal is to raise £6000. As of today, I'm up to £2506. All money that is donated will be spent on my top surgery. Anything left over will be donated to another transgender person to help them with their surgery costs. If you would like to help me out, the donation button can be found at the top of every page on this blog.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to record a video yet. When I get the chance to do so, I will embed it here.
