Emotional changes while on T [Jun. 6th, 2010|05:48 pm]
Taylor
Between weeks 10-14 I exp some bad mood swings. I was up and down emotionally. In the last 2 weeks it has settled down a lot, as I'm a lot more calmer and not feeling like I'm emotionally all over the place. and I didn't understand what I was feeling.

I still don't have a complete understanding of what I'm feeling (but it is getting better), as my emotions are different than they were pre T, I don't feel emotions as intense as I could in the past. I guess I know and understand what people met by the awkward stage with transitioning. I couldn't be happier with the physical changes, and I knew and read up on possible emotional changes, but I guess its one thing to read what may happen and another to go through it. I'm going to be paying more attention to how I'm doing while I'm getting used to how I feel emotional wise. I feel like I'm on a different world which I'm just newly exploring.

Be careful of rage when on T. I should know after years of being poisoned by it.

I am watching how I am with anger, as I do get frustrated easier/quicker, and I am trying to learn what makes me angry and how to handle it, as pre T it was easier to just be an arms length from my anger and deal with it differently. I have started to run as a way to help me feel better.

Now that I take estrogen, I feel I can manage any anger much easier than before. But other feelings like sadness are multiplied alot. Sad moments in movies make me cry now. I am not use to that yet lol.

Its unique how our emotions are now opposite from what we were used to (thoe I know the hormones do that). My other feels like sadness are not as intense as they were in the past, I was used to having more range in my emotions, probably like what your able to feel now compare to before (Pre Estrogen). It probably takes time to get used to our new emotional state.

It does indeed. I still have trouble controlling my emotional states now under estrogen. When I was pre-hormones, I was a rock for the most part lol.

We can both agree we like how we are changing both changing mentally and physically from our respective hormones.
