it's not about a goal or destination, it's about prolonging the process 

I started a low dose of testosterone for many reasons. One being that I wanted to prolong my second puberty for as long as possible. I still see other transguys who are farther along in their transitions and feel envious of their lower voices, easily grown facial scruff, and physique (most achieved within 2-3 years of starting T). But then I remind myself, I'm not them...I'm me. 

As my body and physical appearance shift towards the masculine, I find myself searching for ways to channel and express my feminine. I'm taking an untraditional path- I did not start hrt and get top surgery to go from one gender to another. These were simply steps towards alignment, congruence, and standing my middle ground on the gender spectrum.
