Well Christmas is over, and I survived with an average amount of misgendering from my grandparents. They call me Harris, so I guess we’re moving in the right direction… sigh. Christmas with Mom and Sarah was good. I like my presents, and Mom made me a stocking with my name on it.
We have family friends that we consider to be family that I haven’t come out to. I would like to see them, but I’m not sure how it would go. There are some people that I would like to see that I know wouldn’t accept me. It’s kind of sad to know that there are people that I’ve grown up with that I probably won’t see again. Maybe I should give them the benefit of the doubt and try, but I don’t know that I could take the rejection.
I didn’t hear from my dad on Christmas, but he did text me a week ago saying that he wanted to talk to me. I didn’t respond. It’s just not worth it.
I think my chest is healing well. I can’t wait to see it without the bandages and tape. I can tell that it’s going to be really good though. Everything seems to be going as the doctor said it would. It’s really stressful though. I just hope I don’t mess anything up. I am excited to stop wearing the Ace bandage in a week.
Yesterday was nine months on testosterone. I’m trying to think of any changes that I haven’t talked about. I don’t think that I’ve said that my feet have grown. They’ve grown about a size. I hope that they’ll grow another size. I’m about a men’s 7 now, if I can grow into an 8 then I should be able to wear any men’s shoes I want. I love men’s dress shoes so I get pretty frustrated that it’s so hard to find good-looking ones in my size. I’ve found that Stacy Adams is a good boy’s dress shoes brand and Tomboy Toes makes an affordable dress shoe in smaller sizes. If anyone has any suggestions on affordable dress shoes, I’d appreciate it.
My facial hair is starting to be visible in pictures. I’ve got two weeks to grow something acceptable before I have to shave for my job next semester. It’s not looking too good right now though… haha! I’ll probably leave my mustache regardless.
All the best,
