1st Testosterone Injection – May 26

26 06 2008

OK, so before May 26, 2008, the day of my first injection, winds as a mere fragment in my life, it’s time for me to write about it so that I can remember it for the rich, eventful and symbolic day that it was.

Jacky like [sic] it big?

26 06 2008

OK, so like many bloggers here at WP, I’m always interested in seeing how people wound up on my blog. Someone actually found this blog by typing in: “Jacky like [sic] it big.”

So now I’m curious as hell. What does Jacky like big? Fish? Lies? Videotape? What?!?!?!?!?!

On a related note, I’m honoured that someone found my other blog by searching for “dyke toolbelt bikini.”  OK, so the bikini part puzzles me a bit but, yeah, dykes and toolbelts totally sound like words I would use together in a sentence.





Blast from the past: Canada apologises for Residential Schools . . .now what?

12 06 2008

A mere 9 months after refusing to sign the U.N. declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples, Stephen Harper formally apologises to  Canada’s Aboriginal peoples for a system of assimilation that has had destructive effects up until today. The residential school system, funded by the federal government and run by churches, isolated Aboriginal children from their families and communities so that they could more easily be assimilated into Euro-Canadian cultures. Inside the schools, siblings were seperated and children were forbidden to speak their languages or practice their culture in any way. Living conditions for these children were abhorrent: bad ventilation, overcrowding, bad heating in the winter and rotten food led to much illness and death. Furthermore, since the schools were badly funded, children were often forced to work on school grounds on tasks such as farming, cleaning and so forth rather than get an actual education.

Ch-ch-changes

12 06 2008

OK. So for some reason, I haven’t felt like blogging about my testosterone injections. The morning that i went to go get my first injection, I thought: “Yeah, tonight, I’m going to write about my whole experience, down to the last detail, and bla bla bla.” But after all that, I just didn’t feel like writing. I will write a post on the near future about my first shot: the experiential process of getting there with my friend, what was going on through my mind, etc. But not now.

After the party

8 06 2008

So, last night, I had a party in my backyard to celebrate my transition. It was awesome and a whole bunch of my friends showed up. Here is the invitation that I had sent as well as the note of thanks that I sent after the party and a few juicy tidbits about the party itself.

Killing time while waiting for T

4 06 2008

Note: I started to write this on Wednesday, May 26 and am only getting back to it now. I’ve been a lazy, lazy boy. However, re-reading myself and completing the entry brings back the feelings that I felt two weeks ago . . . I don’t think I can ever forget that.

************************************************************************

As regular readers may have noticed, I rarely write the sort of post where I actually describe what I did on a particular day. However, today is worth describing. I was a nervous wreck for most of the day as I waited for my 1:20 PM appointment with my endocrinologist. It was my second appointment with him and he would have access to the results of my blood tests.
