How I Do My T Shot | Testosterone Shot Tutorial FTM
How I Do My T Shot | FTM Testosterone Injections For A More Step By Step Tutorial Visit My Article Here: https://bit.ly/2o4naHY Here's A Great Trans Owned Company For Shot Equipment Storage https://www.stealthbrosco.com/ ----- This Is How I Do My T Shot: How To Inject Your Testosterone Shot (Intramuscular) At first, the thought of administering a testosterone shot weekly at my home was scary. It gave me anxiety and I wasn't sure if it was the correct path of HRT for me. Once I took the leap and decided it was the best course of action, it worked out for me. The first testosterone shot at home was intimidating especially because my girlfriend was giving me my shots and it was both of our anxiety we had to battle. But once we did it the first time, we got more and more used to how I do my t shot. Now, it is a weekly task we are able to knock out pretty quickly and I'm so thankful for it.

Overcome Self-Doubt In Two Steps | Positive Mindset
Overcome Self Doubt In Two Steps | Positive Mindset Click Now To Learn More 👉 https://bit.ly/2lSDLN ----- Am I good enough? Can I do this? Why me? I'm too young. We are constantly putting ourselves down. Speaking negativity into our own lives and attracting it., instead of maintaining a positive mindset. It's easier to accept defeat than to stand tall and weather the storm. Everyone has goals. Everyone has a vision of what they want their life to look like and instead of buckling down and attacking that goal, most people just stick to daydreaming. We need to learn to overcome self-doubt and stick to a positive mindset. But why not you? Why can't you? What's holding you back? Life is too short for you to waste your days wondering what life would have been like if you had taken that step. So whatever step that is for you....Take it. Think about how you can make your goal a reality and GO FOR IT. Subscribe To My Channel 👉https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIN9sgo6HXw

KT Tape Dos and Don'ts | FTM Binding
KT Tape Dos and Don'ts | FTM Binding Click Here To Try It 👉 https://amzn.to/2GIUmMb ----- Here’s some KT Tape Do's & Don'ts that I follow for my daily KT Tape binding results: DON’T USE NEW TAPE every day. Change the tape every 3 days. I know this may seem unnatural to leave it on when you shower, but it will leave you with the best results for your skin. If you put on new tape every day the skin WILL tear and become raw making it not only painful but impossible to continue taking over the top of it. To create a buffer between the skin and adhesive you can apply Phillips Milk of Magnesia to the skin prior to taping. Allow to dry, and apply the strips over the top. This can help reduce redness and itchy irritation. Irritation issues have been seen when applying with too much tension. It is difficult for me to say to not overstretch the tape because we are over-stretching by binding with it.

6 Months On Testosterone Comparison | FTM Transition
I hesitated posting this. I’m not ripped. I’m not jacked. I’m not the tallest guy. I have acne. I’m not perfect. But this is my body. This is me. I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am mentally. So here’s an inside look at the difference and the comparison. My neck. My shoulders. My torso. My chin. There’s so much I’m proud of. There’s so much of me that I’m happy with and I can’t believe any of it was even possible. I faked looking in the mirror with confidence for so long and now I’m genuinely happy with the man in the mirror. I am transgender. I am transitioning. I am FTM. I like this picture because it looks like I’m looking at myself. Like coaching myself through the hard times of back then. Im always going to try to be a better me. Improve my health. Enhance my fitness regimen. Push myself to be more positive and thankful. But right now, after 6 months on testosterone I just wanted to take a step back and see how far I’ve come. Bless. Up. 💯
