Recent commission from a friend of mine, Ratte. (find him here: https://www.weasyl.com/profile/ratte) You can find the original submission of FA, also under Ratte, which I suggest you do anyway because he's a wonderful artist.

A few months ago I began to debate the status of my gender with myself. I've been uncomfortable with my masculine features for quite some time, and over the past few years the discomfort has grown enough to become distressing. So, a few weeks ago I made the decision to start HRT. It has helped in a lot of ways to reduce my anxiety, and generally made me feel better about things in general. I've decided to pursue a full transition, and to reflect this I decided to change my fursona to reflect where I want to be in a couple of years.

    Congrats, you're really brave to be able to make that decision.

      I guess? It really felt like something I needed to do for me. And having gotten the support of my boyfriend and quite a few of my friends ahead of time helped. Won't prevent some other things from being difficult, but it helps a lot and it's something not a lot of trans* folk get.

      Thanks. ^^
      It's honestly hard to believe it's been almost a year now.

        Wow! Yeah, it goes a little faster when your not dreading your day to day and feeling depressed or out of place with your own identity.

          Mostly I just like feeling emotion again. It'd gotten to the point where I was constantly numb before HRT, even with taking several anti-depressants.
          It's much better now.

            I can relate to that sentiment. Glad it's going well for you, also happy one year when it comes around.
