No, it’s not a typo – just a bad pun. The endocrinologist wrote the script for T today; I have officially started the next phase of my journey. We agreed gel was the best option for me. Even though injections might work faster that is not what I’m after – I’m 50 and want to give my body time to gradually adjust.
The stuff reminds me of the alcohol-based handwash gels – clear and antiseptic smelling. It’s absorbed pretty quickly so it won’t slow down my morning routine.
My only worry is getting the big bottle of gel through the airport – at least until I’m a bit more male looking! It’s too expensive to put in checked luggage and the cargo hold probably gets too cold/hot depending on the season.
My first business trip is tentatively scheduled at the end of January – I hope it gets moved out a few months.
