I failed to actually post this last week when I should have, but here it is anyway.

I got my sixth T shot today.  I watched as the needle went in again, and I noticed that I move around more when I'm watching, which makes it hurt and bleed, so I'm going to try to learn to do it without looking at all.  I had pretty bad anxiety the whole day though (bad enough that I got misgendered on the phone, which never happens anymore), and I slept through all of yesterday.  I seem to have trouble staying conscious 6-7 days after each shot, and I get anxiety during the day after my shot.  When I'm doing it on my own, after top surgery, I think I'll try out an even shorter injection cycle to see if I can avoid the low energy slump, and I'll do the shots in the evening so I can sleep through the anxiety I get when my levels are low and I'm awake.  Random: my injection site has also been itching all afternoon.  I hope it doesn't mean I'm allergic to the oil, because I have a big honkin' vial of the stuff I'd hate to waste.

In T-related news, I got another period while I was at the Trans Health Conference, and it was surprisingly not bad at all.  I'm wondering if maybe injections are doing what a higher dose never did, because this one was short and light and all-around not a pain in the ass.  It'd be really nice if it were the last one ever because the next predicted one coincides with my top surgery in a little over three weeks.  Speaking of top surgery, I'm seriously freaking out.

So my top surgery is in a little over three weeks now, and I'm still freaking out.  I thought I'd feel better after the Trans Health Conference, but it didn't make any difference.  I'm still flip-flopping on a daily basis.  I'll have to mail my paperwork via Priority Mail so they get my payment by Wednesday's deadline.  And I still haven't told my mom yet. . . I'm just not sure how.  I also have to book a hotel and am stressed out about the cost.  My insurance now claims they never said they pitch in for travel expenses for SRS, and I don't have the energy to fight them on it.

It was great to see you at the conference. Wish we'd had more time to chat. Did you make it to the medical museum? We did - it was bizarre!

It was great to see you at the conference, too! I'm really sorry I didn't follow up with you there. I ended up being really low-energy, not doing much of anything outside the conference and spending a lot of sessions in the community hang-out room instead of at talks/workshops. I'm glad you had fun at the museum though! Hopefully the next time I go I'll have more energy and make arrangements to hang out ahead of time. (-:
