HRT | robintaylorann's Blog
So yesterday was my second therapy session and it went fairly well we were just chatting and she asked what stops I had taken to contact the Endocrinology department at the University of Kentucky this caught me off guard for two reasons 1) even though I had been hoping to move to HRT after this appointment I had set myself up expecting it not to happen for whatever reason & 2) I thought that HRT was all hinging on her request and OK. So needless to say I spent the next little bit stuttering.
It wasn't til late last night that I was able to process the events of the day as something that actually happened and then the "fears" started to creep into my mind,,,, not the fear that what I was doing is truly what I want oh no I've never once had that thought cross my mind! what is crossing my mind is Am I strong enough?

So I've got my phone calls in BUT they do need the sign off of my Dr first before setting up any appointments so THAT's my next step
It's just hard when living on a strict budget every month to:
~save money to move
~ Transition expenses
