Adventures in Flowering

Been a busy and productive few weeks. I saw my Endocrinologist a couple days ago for my HRT six months follow up visit. He was his usual peculiar but cool self. Had his staff take some blood to use to check my E and T levels. He doesn’t seem to be a huge believer in it but he humored me with a progesterone prescription and ALSO gave me my letter for legal gender transition. So now the name and gender change is much closer to being within my grasp. I hope to do both within a month. It’s really freaking happening! I’m going to be legally Lily soon!!!! 🌷

Then it’s hopefully on to consultations for GCS, vocal feminization surgery, electrolysis….and whatever else may arise.

After so many tortured years of hiding out, it’s absolutely surreal to be finally living the way I want. This is not to say that it’s not occasionally incredibly scary but…..

Living authentically it truly it’s own reward. I laugh, smile, and giggle so much more these days than I used to. I’ve made so many friends and it’s strengthened so many existing bonds in my life with family and friends.

I try not to dwell on the past too much but… I was a truly sick person most of my teens and twenties. I often wonder what I could have made of my life if I didn’t have two nervous breakdowns in my twenties which involved several hospitalizations and countless drugs.

The inner peace I have as Lily Jane is the peace Thom was never really able to achieve or truly enjoy for any appreciable amount of time. I will fight like hell with all the strength I possess to defend it. Believe that shit 🤘

I must excuse myself now to cook dinner for Shannon and I but, I’m hanging in there. Working out every day, kicking ass on the beach and plotting my next move.

Also, CAN’T WAIT FOR ST. PETE PRIDE NEXT WEEKEND!!! 🌈

Cheers!

-Lily Jane 🌷
