Transition progress

Oh my gawd I forgot to write about my transition, in the middle of all the trump bullshit I have not filled anyone in on how my transition is going!

I have been able to do a lot of research into supplements that will carry my hormone doses even further and I tell you what this is working greatly! This is going to be information for transgender women so if you don’t want to read any further right here is where you will want to stop.

Ladies, I have figured out that progesterone cream along with estriol cream along with the hormones we take boosts all the good feelings substantially! I use the progesterone cream once a day on my inner arms and I use the estriol on my chest twice a day. The results are remarkable! I have also been taking progesterone pills once a day, black cohosh pills twice a day, and biotin three times a day (biotin is for my hair and nails) doing all of this for the last several weeks has really boosted my hormones to right around where I want them. This is not for everyone please ask a doctor before you do this.

Another thing and for those of you who aren’t trans people but are still reading this is another warning about what I’m about to write down is pretty personal and in depth of what has been going on in my body.

Transgender women have periods! Yes you read that right! I had mine all last week. I was bloated, moody, extra emotional, in a lot of pain, extra annoyed with the dumbest things, and very snappy. All I wanted to do was lay in bed and cry. I’ve been having them since April and didn’t even realize it. I just thought I was insane and this was just another thing to keep quiet since being transgender is such a weird thing for folks. This probably sounds weird but it’s the honest to god truth, TRANS WOMAN HAVE PERIODS!

My chest has grown a lot and instead of having indented nipples I have breast tissue and they are sensitive like that good sensitive where when I brush them on something my whole body tingles. ALOT! My body hair has slowed way down I don’t need to shave every day anymore I just save two times a week now. It’s all happening and since I was 11 this has been my dream, this has been my truth, this is me!

Along with all of this body stuff going on I’m going to be getting my name and gender marker changed by September! I’ve got to get all of my important documents changed over ASAP in light of what is happening in America right now. I have a need of $500 to get this ball rolling I’m not sure what the exact number amount needed is going to come to but if you could take a look at my go fund me, Venmo me, cash me, or PayPal me I would be beyond thankful. I’m in a pretty serious time crunch so if you would like details on how to give just comment below and I’ll fill you in!

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
