Being on antiandrogens for over six months did a lot to clear my mind. The longer I was on them though the harder it became to present male at work because the sense of "wrongness" escalated the longer I was on them, especially once my endocrinologist increased them from the low dose I was on to something higher.
Coming up on two weeks with E and a much higher dose of antiandrogens. It has been amazing so. Yes, just knowing that I started on estrogens has been huge for my mental state. Much of that is like a placebo effect for sure. It is like having an anti-anxiety medication in your purse to help with panic attacks and it reduces the anxiety and amount of panic attacks because you know that it is there.
I am noticing physical changes as well as mental changes. Softer skin is definitely on of the changes. My hair seems softer and shinier too, growing faster, possibly. The munchies are much better, or I'm getting better and not giving into them. Continued breast development is definitely there. My bra pads are close to not being able to fit in my bra any longer.
It is definitely a wonderful ride so far. Time to sit back and just enjoy the trip. :)
