Woohoo! My first #progesterone Rx arrived this morning. I imagine tonight might be interesting. First time in almost 13 years of GAHT that I'll have prog.

Debating oral vs anal (boofing) administration. I've seen the anecdata indicating boofing is much more effective. And I really would like to see some movement toward Tanner stage 4. After all this time, I'm still in Tanner 3. 🤷‍♀️

With thanks to @Impossible_PhD

I really appreciate the support from you. I think your articles had a definite (positive) effect with my doctor and her concerns over the cardiac situation. 💜

I'm thinking about this as my wardrobe choice for on Saturday. Pink and blue stripes, on a white woman. Opinions?

I haven't been to Pride in many years. As a who is also and an , I'm worried whether I can tolerate the crowds, and if I will have the for such an outing. I'll gauge spoons that morning I guess. A recent music festival was overwhelming. 🤷‍♀️

@Meyltje

Therein lies my concern. That's not really an option, as my only way there is via my housemates. They're going and I'd be riding along.

And Lyft to go home alone is $50+ one way on a normal day. On Pride? I can't count on that option.

It's currently 10:55pm ET. I'm normally in bed asleep by now. Tonight though, I have a customer who needs a data file recovered. Said file is open anytime anyone is logged into the application, which is a point of sale.

The customer's stores all close at 11pm CT (midnight ET), so I should be able to take control of the file by about 12:30AM or so (ET). The file recovery will probably take around a half hour or so. This is running in the negative spoons already.

Lovely. I walked outside to pickup the mail, was out there maybe 3 minutes. It's wet and chilly here this morning. 58 F (14.4 C) and drizzling currently. So of course as soon as I got back inside, a aura started.

OMG, didn't know that this was a 'thing' but Minnesota Gov Tim Walz signed a ban on the gay and trans panic defense into law on Friday. How could this ever have been considered a defense????

@janetlogan@mas.to avatar

@Bwheatnyc

Only 19 states (plus D.C.) have banned it. Check out this map.

What are your thoughts on self-diagnosis being belittled by many in the autistic community?

For clarity, I’m not asking to start a debate, just a genuine discussion. I currently don’t have the option to get a diagnosis, but feel fairly confident that the research I’ve done over the past year and a half has been legitimate and credible.

I don’t feel comfortable saying that I am definitively autistic, but I am ok with saying I’m “self-suspecting.” @actuallyautistic

janetlogan,
@janetlogan@mas.to avatar

@chevalier26

I agree completely with @pathfinder on all of this. I am very recent to what is referred to as self-realization or self-diagnosis.

It was only late last year that I started down that path, and I am transgender, female presenting, and almost 66 years of age. I won't seek "official diagnosis" for many of the very reasons Kevin mentioned.

FWIW: My current (trauma) therapist accepted my self-dx declaration, and has never questioned the validity.

I had a few friends suggest that I take some of the tests available online. Embrace Autism is a good source if you care to do so. I took the AQ, RAADS-R, CAT-Q, and Aspie Quiz. I scored high for traits on all of those tests.

Last evening, I stubbed my big toe on my right foot. I don't remember doing it, which given how bad it was, is strange. You see, I broke the nail and exposed the nail bed.

I discovered it around 6pm, and it wasn't really painful at that point. Then, sometime later, I knocked that loose nail off of my toe entirely. Then it began to really hurt.

I'm currently NOT wearing the compression socks for my as they are very tight on the foot. I won't be doing so for awhile.

Echocardiogram

"I had a transthoracic echocardiogram on Monday 20-May, as a followup to my cardiac diagnostics. They wanted to check on that enlargement of the ascending aorta, as well as the aortic valve calcification. Short story: Everything is stable."

Mae Dean quote-boosted the author that wrote this blog post on Bluesky and I figured linking it here would be useful for my followers, particularly planning on/currently taking/thinking about taking and maybe if uncertain about the 1-2 year "maximum effect" thing studies mention, because (spoiler) they weren't long enough: https://stainedglasswoman.substack.com/p/transition-timelines

I am a well educated woman, a demisexual lesbian, and an eclectic . I am loving, and giving. I am a type, who often fails miserably at self care.

I am a widow. The day that my wife died, the doctor came to me asking for my permission to stop all life-saving measures. I said “Call it” to the doctor, thereby finalizing her death.

I am complex, complicated, and worth the effort.

That's the nice thing about online support. Don't need the spoons to actually get dressed and go anywhere. 😆

My wife had lupus. I am sadly very familiar with it. 😢
