Manly Bits

August 20, 2010

So the hormone replacement therapy is working. Without going into the awkward details let it suffice to say that I’m going through a second; and highly accelerated puberty. While something like 85% of my readership is female (30% of it being my mom) and therefore wont be able to identify with this, I can honestly say that the worst thing about all this is that I forgot how distracting functioning male genitalia is. Not in the “oh look a new toy I wanna play with it” sense, but in more of a “I notice girly bits again” sense. It’s hard to get things done.

Should be getting the results of the growth hormone testing today, lets hope for the best. I’m definitely all for something that makes me feel like I can fly and shoot rainbow lasers out my eyes, but I’d rather not have to worry about finding the $500-$750 a month.

Hormone Therapy

Speaking of money, I had my re-evaluation call with the firm that’s representing me in my disability application. It felt somewhat awkward as they went down the list of symptoms on my previous application and most of the time I responded “That only happens every once and awhile and it isn’t an issue.” Which is a good thing I suppose. My case worker said that she thought I probably would get approved, but that it wouldn’t be until the third or fourth appeal.

    um, er… as your mom I thank you for your discretion in detailing your “functioning bits”. However, with that said, i am glad you are feeling “perky” again!

    Good news……! And hang in there with the disability people. We are living in a blackberry jungle. It is taking over the yard. And there are cats everywhere….that is the news from here. Love you Chris.

    Oh Chris, you filled my morning with hysterical laughing…unfortunately some of the water came out my nose. Your fault.

    Accelerated puberty…wow! I’m glad I’m not having to go through that one…although for a girl it would be a tad different, I suppose.

    I get the feeling that if more people were taking steroids there would be less sad single people like me! Hah.

    (Okay, it’s like, a day later and I forgot to press SUMBIT. So some of this might not make sense. Sorry!)
