My 4:00AM survivor’s guide to #FFS#recovery. While deep sleep eludes me due to insomnia, irregular potty breaks, and necessary rotation of ice packs, these key ingredients make for the most comfortable rest possible. Just what I’ve found works best, a sort of “check list” for others considering #facialfeminizationsurgery or any kind of facial #reconstructivesurgery. These work in tandem with my prescribed #painmeds and #antibiotics per usual, as well as the obvious application/sterilization elements such as Q-tips, Curad pads, gauze, etc. Please note the essential oils, star dust, and lotion aren’t for my face, but for body to soothe and comfort both my mind and dry skin as much as possible between quick showers. Lastly don’t forget your #dehumidifier and pillows stacked to kingdom come! Hope everyone else is asleep and wakes up feeling awesome. Nigh nigh. 💗
Joburg visits and the BEST MOM in existence❤️. I’m taking a bit of a break while in JHB (even though it’s actually a work trip) bc of a serious injury and some tlc needed for my psyche as well.
Thank you so much for the incredible and continuous support. I am blessed and so loved - I promise to take care of myself and better care than I have offered in the past.
You are not on your own side if you don’t take your feelings and pain seriously and if you don’t give yourself space to be - be hurt, be patient and FFS BE KIND TO YOURSELF!
I watched a movie the other night which taught me something remarkable:
When presented with the choice of being right or being kind, always choose to be kind. 💎
That kind of molded my perception and where I’m at rn.
Take care peeps!😘 #soblessed#letgoofstress#hugs#love#tlc#takecare#ffs#bekind#instadaily#travel#johannesburg#mom#best#love#grafitti#shoot#tbt#throwback#oilburn

Two years ago today I began my social transition. I started living my life full time out loud, it’s really astounding to me how much has changed and how much growth I’ve seen in myself emotionally, spiritually, and obviously physically too. I’ve fallen in love and started to learn what it means to me to be this woman that I am. I’m so far from done but I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.
Good morning! Update from the treehouse: I’ve got this icing thing down! Basically up on the hour every hour throughout the night which is no fun, but I have to take meds anyway so we’re just being troopers. Puffy as a muppet marshmallow, this swelling is the biggest factor right now. I’ve got great video of the docs taking my bandages off, but there’s a lot of dry blood and it may make some queasy, plus I don’t wish it to be reported etc. Taking notes on this whole experience to share later w any other humans who are considering #FFS, but quick insider’s tip; these eye mask ice packs are a lifesaver for the neck area too! Big shout out of gratitude to Aeriel England at Studio Elements for working tenderly to remove all the clotted blood from my matted hair, and fixing the color so I can still have my silvery white shade. 🦄 Trying to get some sleep, thank you for the support everyone. #transisbeautiful#facialfeminizationsurgery#recovery#thankyoujesus
