    I have a super random question about HRT and if you don’t want to answer I understand. I work in a retail pharmacy and every now and again I get a script for the estradiol tablets to be chewed or dissolved in the mouth. First time I called on it but nurse gave me some bull shit reason like “that’s what the doctor wrote.” That shit has to be fucking gross and normally it’s like four tablets. Patches aren’t strong enough and most women don’t inject estradiol even though it exist. So why chew/dissolve?

    I imagine you answered your own question.

    I had to do an IM injection 3x a week for a few months. My wife did every one. I tried on several occasions (even boozed up) and couldn’t do it. If there was a pill option I woulda done that in a heartbeat.

    still no jokes about the first openly trans poster being a bama fan. i'm not sure if i'm proud or disappointed, probably both.

    It is crazy that the most repressed, least progressive state/fanbase, provided us with a closeted gay football coach (RIP cheely), the most perverted guy this site has seen (6 seconds), a guy who did gay porn for money, and now our first openly trans member.

    I’m really only proud of glimmer in this case, though.

    she’s been so amazing. i couldn’t have done any of this without her

    still alabama but i’m in downtown birmingham these days. we’ve got a small but solid community here and i’ve got several bars/restaurants/stores that are definitely safe spaces. for most people around here, being trans isn’t something too foreign to them - but that changes quickly once you get into the suburbs and even more so out in the sticks.

    dissolving under the tongue is my method. Dr said some studies have shown it has better uptake sublingually than just swallowed. it helps that it legitimately does not taste bad, kind of a minty sweetness. there’s a reason the pills have nicknames like tit-tacs and femme&m’s

    i laughed out loud in starbucks and everyone stared

    When you told me about this and I prepped my wife about it before we visited you, she could not wrap her head around it. She grew up in an extremely conservative Southern Baptist household and this was so out of her wheelhouse. All that it took for me to convince her is the stat you shared with me of the suicide rate of kids that go through this unsupported. It immediately changed her to being supportive. Not that that matters much to have people be supportive 1000 miles away that you see once every 1-2 years. But the point is, awareness and specifically awareness of the consequences of not being supportive are enough to sway a lot of people’s worldview.

    Can you be a doll and share that stat? I forgot it.

    i have a trans patient on a shared roster with my 3rd year little at school. he didn’t need much help other than guidance so she asked for me to stick around and hold her hand during the procedure. went great and kept her from needing a root canal for now and now she’s telling all of her friends to get their work done with us so hopefully ill get a few more on the roster

    I don’t recognize you glimmer but I am so happy for you and proud of you for being able to do what is right for you. It truly bothers me that you don’t have the support of your family and I really am sorry for that, you don’t deserve that. But sounds like you have a great SO and happy to see so many members on here support you as well. You are awesome and continue to be you!

    I truly believe we (the board in general) helped drive man to commit suicide. Now I’m not going to argue with anyone on how large of a role we played. I’d hope we wouldn’t do anything similar in this situation. Fuck anyone who makes glimmer feel anything other than acceptance. I’d ban them in a second.

    He had been away from the board from a while when he died. He came back briefly and appeared to have a new good life in Denver. And then we heard he died of maybe a drug overdose. There was some distance between his interactions with the board and his passing.

    Have a friend who almost killed themselves before realizing there was a support group and people to talk to about it. He has now become a she and continues the transition but she's alive and amazing and that is all that matters.
