I still try to figure out a proper comment, but I can't.
Dude, this sums up just all the misery I (and probably every FtM) has to deal with (minus external circumstances)
This is f*cking brilliant and sad at the same time.

Thanks. I was a little afraid of posting it 'cause I've seen similar works for the trans community. But hey, needed to express myself.

Well, that just shows that we all feel this way, right? And I think you did a great job expressing it yourself.

Ugh. This particularly struck a chord with me because I had the advanced stages of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I was up to the point where I hadn't had a period for over a year. My voice was really low and my breasts had shrunken quite a bit. I mentioned skipping my period to my mother, and she rushed me to the gynecologist, where I got the diagnosis and was forced to go on Yaz. Now, my voice is a lot higher, my breasts are big again, and I'm all curvy. Next time we go, I swear, I'm asking to get off of it.

If I had just kept my big mouth shut, I'd be able to pass a lot better and I wouldn't have to deal with this. :cries:

Yeah, but you'd also be really unhealthy. I don't know anything about the disease, but who knows what could have happened? I think it's better to get treated for something, no matter how opposed to it you are, than to have it threaten your health or life. It really sucks that you can't pass well 'cause of that :( Good luck!

Actually, no. The only adverse effect is loss of ovary function, which I had no problem with.

There was an alternative treatment option called glucophage, which I wanted to try. My mother didn't much care either way, so she okayed it. When she went to pick it up at the pharmacy, though, they said 'here's your diabetes medication!' and my mother freaked out and wouldn't let me take it. So, she made me go on the yaz.

Huh, that's interesting. Now I kinda wonder how a diabetes medication would have treated it. Do you know if the syndrome will come back if you stop taking the yaz?

It's called metformin or glucophage. It doesn't treat PCOS, it treats one of the symptoms of PCOS, hyperpigmentation. Which the Yaz did nothing to help. So, I could have just taken the glucophage without the yaz and have the same effect as taking both. There's no real need for the yaz.

Hmmm... my girlfriend takes a certain birth control and it like... I don't know if it stops or delays her cycle for a while. I have no idea if that would help at all.

But yeah. This has a high impact. Freaking ovaries.

I've been considering it, but there are a lot of factors involved. Plus I'd have to see a doctor and get it prescribed, and I'm nervous about that pile of awkward.

Thanks, high impact is pretty much what I was going for.

That's a good point. That's the problem I have with it >.< But like, I have other reasons for wanting to delay the cycle which overrides my awkwardness like WOAH. But i do understand. And you defnitely made the impact.

Yeah. I'm not usually this bad, I've been pretty okay the last six or seven months. It just.. hit me really hard this time. I am old enough to try to go for T, but I can't afford it, so I'm stuck too.

This should be a logo for something... I don't know what it would work for, but it looks really memorable and compact, like I'll remember it a year from now or something. I don't know why I just said that.

Heh, I guess that's good. I dunno, I wouldn't want something that came from me being so upset to be a logo, but it's nice to know that I made something memorable =) Thanks.

Ah, I know that exact feeling.
There's nothing like a menstrual cycle to make you realize your inside is not your outside.
And there's nothing like binding to make you feel so trapped in your own body.
It may be emotionally and mentally painful, but it'll be okay.
Just know that you aren't alone and that there will always be better days.
Always.
