  1. Congrats you two *hugs both* A beautiful friendship!
  2. I'm so sorry I was sure I had posted <.< Misheru, Aes Sedai, Green Ajah I have no idea since I don't care the least about football XD
  3. Re: the blood clots increase. I think it's about the same chance as for women who use birth control (that is, after all, an oral estrogen and/or progesterone supplement), that the risk is enchanced right away, but then it stays that way for as long as you are on pills (some women think the risk will keep rising the longer you are on the pills). Unless the chance for you is significantly higher than for a woman taking birth control, my advice would be to choose what is most practical for you.
  4. Heya! I signed up. But I can't login. This link: http://thecrockery.org/login-4/ just gives me a 404. PS: Having the whole password show in the signupmail isn't a very good idea, for safety reasons. I try to have unique passwords everywhere, but if someone is able to hack into my mail account, they will then also get ahold of my Crockery account. PPS: You guys should set up a mafia forum Is it Day 3 yet?
  5. Misheru, Green Aes Sedai. My BFF and I are prob gonna buy it for each other for christmas XD
  6. People will always fear what they cannot understand, and fear leads to distrust and hatred.
  7. Welcome home dear brother *hugs* We've waited long for you! And are so happy to have you! :)
  8. The usually get a stern talking-to from me. I can't even halfway understand how it feels to be born in the wrong body, but I do know how it feels like to be trapped in a sick body, and how frustarting that is when your body keeps you from living the life you wish. It's not the same, but it's enough that I am very protective about trans rights and respect. I'm also queer myself to those two together has made me a loud trans advocate.
  9. Thank you :) I prefer to ask, I think that's the respectful thing to do. I get so mad when people refer to the guy I earlier mentioned as "she" and calls him by his old name (on purpose); that's just rude and unforgiveable!
  10. Yes I use metformin now to try to help me loose weight; PCOS has led to me having insulin problems as well, my body doesn't burn fat on it's own, it stores everything (I've gained 30 kilos over 2 years). The BC pills only makes that worse, so I take metformin on top to try to help my body first stop gaining weight, and then hopefully be able to loose some eventually. I've tried metformin only and no BC pills and that didn't help on the other symptoms though.
  11. Also yay: hormones. I actually need to always be on birth control pills because I have too little estrogen (PCOS). If I'm off birth control pills I start getting black body hair, especially in places a girl isn't supposed to have hair (I had to shave my thighs every day when I went out, and I had a moustache if I didn't remove hair), I also got bad acne (wich also is gone now that I'm on pills). I went almost two years without pills, so starting on them again was harsh on the body. I can't even imagine how it feels like for a body that's not used to those hormones at all.
  12. Hiarth, thank you so much for sharing your story, you are so brave and I really hope it will end up with you being able to live the life you want and that feels like you, if that makes sense. I am glad your mother took it gracefully, even with the comment about dressing down arund family ( ) but it could have been much worse. Also YAY Joy Division shirt! Do you prefer she or they pronouns? Just good to know :) Someone I know has just gone through a FtM transition; he had a stroke at 32 and figured life was too short to live as the wrong gender. He looks so extremely happy now, he works as a personal trainer at the gym my husband uses. I haven't seen him in person for a while, but before he came out we used to talk every now and then and I got the impression several times he wasn't happy with his life, his body and his lifechoices. According to my husband now he's glowing everytime he sees him. I'm really happy for him, and I hope you can reach that feeling too.
