Here I will blather endlessly about my feelings and opinions related to my transitioning.

Stealth in real life
This is a secondary blog, so I can't follow-back.
I would strongly prefer for the content posted here to refrain from being shared on facebook groups/pages/the like.
I have been about 6 kinds of bad at remembering/actually doing my shot these days and I’m finally feeling back to normal after getting it over with last night (only 3 days late…)
In other news, my legal name change came back with no issues and I’ll have the affidavit from the newspaper in a few more days followed by a trip to the clerks office to get 5 official copies of my name change for the DMV/passport office/social security/bank shit/health insurance/whatever.
As I mentioned briefly in other posts, my body does not generally react well to dissolving stitches and last night my body has started pushing remaining end bits of stitches out of the scar tissue in a mess of pus and blood
I discovered this at about 1am while looking down and wondering why I had a lump under my nip
It’s a lot like an ingrown hair but with bits of the ends of stitches thrown in
I feel like a massive chicken when I have someone else do my shot, it’s just so much easier in so many ways.
Physically it only takes about a minute and a half to ask a friend, draw it up, and inject it whereas if I do it myself I draw it, stare at it for an hour, spend an hour trying to do it, and then finally do it in a fog of anxiety. (if I don’t completely psych myself out and just do it a day late)
At least it’s done?
I can do it myself, and I’ve done it myself several weeks. I would just prefer to have someone else do it because I’ve got an abundance of friends who are nurses or EMTs and are trained to do things like that who don’t mind helping me out every week.
