I just started testosterone yesterday (Saturday December 29th, 2007)
This will be my transition journal.. where I write about the changes I notice, etc.. as well as other aspects of my transition.

My doctor started me on Androgel, a topical form of testosterone, which I need to apply to my stomach, chest, upper arms and shoulders daily.
He started me off on the gel, because I have pre-existing mood disorders and since testosterone can increase anger, irritability, and rage.. he wants to ease me into it so I don't lose control.
He's also started me off on a very low dose of the gel. It's in a pump.. so one pump a day for the first week, then 2 the next, then 3, then 4. 4 per day is the standard dosage for the gel.
