I haven't made one of these in a while, although I have commented on T changes in friends-only entries.  Since my third T-versary three and a quarter months ago, I've noticed some changes that were probably in the works for a while.  I increased my dose of T to 1.25 g of AndroGel 1.62% daily exactly one week after my third T-versary, so exactly three months ago yesterday.  That's worth posting about, right?  The higher dose helped with the hot flashes from Lupron, although it didn't entirely eliminate them.  It's manageable enough that I'm not thinking of increasing my dose further.

Things I've noticed since my last post:  I now have visible hair on my arms, incuding a stray hair on my shoulder and hair on my hands.  It's strange.  I still feel jealousy when I see men with hair there, so I think it's just weird to get used to it on me, even if it's something I want.  Additionally, I have visible hair on my feet and my big toe.  That's most of what I posted about in bits and pieces over the past few months.  I'm also building muscle easily now that I'm exercising again, but my hips are very much still there in shape if not size, and my waist is still troublingly small.  I have a long way to go with building up my upper body.  Finally, I was able to confirm that my feet have grown since I started T.  I'm not sure when it happened, but I tried on old shoes to check what the numbers already told me.

That's all for now!

Woah, good to hear from you, too! I made it just for the last day because I had to work during the first two days. It wasn't as good as last year, which wasn't as good as the year before, but I guess that's how it always seems, eh? How about you? And how are you doing?

I'm doing well. I had top surgery in June, and I've been back to work for 2 weeks now - so far so good.
I've been getting involved in a local, community driven, volunteer radio station, which has been really fun. I have a one hour show once a week, playing 70s and 80s new wave, post-punk, goth etc. type music!

Awesome, that's my favorite kind of radio! (I used to be really into a similar radio station when I was a teenager.)
