An Interesting Day
I finally went to that class earlier this afternoon. It was definitely more than I was expecting. It was like sex education on a level you'd never see them teach in school. We had to watch a video with different scenarios and say what the people in them should do, put a condom on a fake penis showing the right way to do it, and we also put a flavored condom on our fingers and tasted it. I found out strawberry tastes like cough syrup, and that cola is no good at all. It wasn't so bad though, I met a couple of really nice FtMs in the waiting room before we went in and got to talk for a while. There were only 4 of us in the class, and it was me and one other MtF, and 2 FtM's, so it was pretty even. At least it was a one time only class, so I won't have to worry about it again. I did find out that they're starting a support group for MtFs, so who knows I might get into that at some point. I had my blood pressure checked after that was over. It's still up some, 130/80, so she's getting me to come back in 2 weeks to see how it is then. I don't really have high blood pressure, but it being a little higher then normal is an indicator that I might have it later in life, so I can see the concern. She said once we get the blood pressure under control she'll increase my estrogen, so I'm going to do everything I can to keep it down for next time. Once I get on the meds she said I'll probably only need to come back every 2 or 3 months, so hopefully I'll be able to get a job by then. I'll write more later, I'm kind of tired and distracted right now.
