Will you still recognise yourself after T? | Christopher Greenwood

Now when I look in the mirror, I see...

A few people told me that I wouldn’t recognise myself in the mirror after a while on Testosterone. I’m starting to realise that I never recognised myself in the mirror. Now when I look in the mirror, I see the person I always have been. But this time, my reflection is me. I recognise myself more than ever.

I have been on Testosterone for 3 years now. I wouldn’t change it for anything. I had top surgery just under a year ago, and I can finally look in the mirror and say, that is me. I am happy with what I see.

So, people who are struggling, please hang in there. I know it can be hard, but everything is possible.

I had so many set backs to get where I am now. After my referral for top surgery, I still had to wait over a year because of my blood results.

I also got my treatment through the NHS in the UK, so that made waiting lists even longer. I got there in the end, and I’m here to say that you will get there. Just hang in. One day at a time
