    I'm suddenly concerned I won't ever be able to get HRT pills. I just remembered that I have a blood condition called ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) which essentially means that my immune system destroys platelets and my count is below normal. Honestly, my doctor is baffled because I don't show the common sign of the condition which is easy bruising/nose bleeds/bleeding gums. But. I still have it regardless. I have to be careful when it comes to stuff like aspirin because it thins the blood and if my count gets severely low it could be dangerous. Will this effect my chances of getting HRT? :(
    That's what the endocrinologist (hurray, I spelled it right the first time) is for. They don't just give you a prescription, they see if you're physically fit to take it or not. If you aren't, they'll try to help you take them anyway.

    Don't think like that. :c

    From what I understand about your condition is that you're at higher risk of things like excessive bleeding and hemorrhaging.
    But, Estrogen actually increases blood coagulation, so if anything it seems like it would help your condition.
    So, don't give up hope just yet.

    The size of your pill is nothing in comparison to the road you're going to have to walk in HRT.

    HorizoN I know you're finding it hard, same as everyone else in the thread, but will you please try not to be so damn negative all the time, not for the sake of us, but you. Things aren't going badly for you at all, you're flying through the steps that would take other people months (or in a case or two, years) to get through. You're already on HRT and you're letting a silly little problem like not being able to swallow a pill get you down?
    You'll do fine in the coming future, but you just gotta stop being so negative.
    Cheer up.

    Zeldy, you're doing great, keep us updated, nice to see it's going well for someone :D

    Everyone else, keep posting socks ;)

    Just to back HorizoN up, my spiro too's hell on earth. At first it was fine, just swallow it with spit, but now it's dry and almost powder'ish surface's so dry I can barely swallow it with a glass of water.
    After eating just a single, my stomach's acting as if I'd eaten a whole pack of mints.
    I noticed it's got an option for snapping it in half though, so they might've though of it aswell.

    My stylist is a dye specialist.

    She works wonders, I tell you. I saw the woman she was working on before me and all I have to say is "damn".

    Heh, so do I.
    I have no idea what to expect, really. I mean, I know the process in the UK (Similar to the American one except with loads of waiting around for appointments. Also sometimes RLE.) but I don't actually know specifically what the hell.

    I told my mum a few weeks ago and she helped me with this.

    My sister's friend (who is kinda homophobic, my sister told me) is talking to me on Facebook chat and she's really making me feel better about myself. It's kind of sudden but damn, I feel so good.

    "it looks wicked! i hope it don't offend you but you look hella androgynous, in a good way"
    "Aww thank you. That's what I'm going for. :D"
    "well you def pulled it off"
    "Glad you think so, that's awesome to hear :3 "
    "and you're super thin as well so it could go either way. there's a french dude i know that's trying to pull that off but what with his awkward plumpness it doesn't work at ALL. i can't do tht either coz i'm too 'feminine'..but you have perfect shape/face for that style, good on you man! first person i've seen that i know to rlly pull it off"

    I keep feeling better and better about myself. Today is a good day.

    I'm not sure if it'll help or not because he's not a doctor close to me. I'm not sure if he'd have consultants (or whatever) where I live.

    I told my doctor. He was very supportive but I still cried telling him. He asked a lot of questions, gave me a few hugs and told me not to be ashamed. He's going to make some calls for me and find a number of therapists for me.
