Nine Months on T
February 29, 2004
I've noticed a lot of new dark hairs on my chin, and my mustache keep filling in more each month. I can't grow anything really worth talking about though yet.
The hair on my arms is finally starting to get darker, especially around my wrists. I have been wondering if that hair would get any darker or longer. The hair on my legs and thighs is really long and dark, and I have two little bald patches between my legs. But Caitlin told me that many guys have that because that's where their legs rub together.
I'm really starting to see the fat padding on my stomach. I'm continuing to gain weight so I don't think this is fat that has redistributed, I think it is fat that I'm gaining, as if my metabolism is slowing down or something. I'm not sure, but I've been trying to exercise more to see if that helps.
Still no gym action this month, but I'm seeing a physical therapist that is going to go into the gym with me to show me some good exercises to help me heal the chronic swelling in my chest and to help build my pecs and arms.
I feel like I'm at a standstill with my acne problem. I stopped using my Benzaclin cream because I needed to get it refilled, and the acne is still there, not really any worse...so I'm wondering if it was even doing anything. I'm still considering antibiotics, or maybe even acutane.
I don't think my voice has changed much, if at all in the past month. However, I have been passing on the phone more. I wonder how much of that is luck and how much is due to actual voice changes, though.
Call it stereotypical, but I've always like blow jobs and now I really like them. I must admit they work the best for me.
The "little guy"
Not much change from last month, he still measures in at about 5 1/2 cm this month.
