|Hi & intro

Hi, I'm Rowan, 40 / coming up 41, UK, female at birth. I started my transition to male/genderqueer about three years ago, and I've been on T since September 2012. I haven't had any surgery, and I'd been intending to have top surgery about a year from now ... until I realised that I don't actually want it, and from there, it's been realising that I don't want to be on T any more either. I'm not regretting because I needed to do this, and here is where I'm at. Finding communities of people in similar retransition journeys and reflections feels helpful right now.|
My sense of me is simply me - perhaps non-binary fits; my thing has been androgyny for the last 20 years and if I hadn't done the FTM thing, I'd have been sat there wondering. I felt I needed to come to androgyny from the 'male direction', so to speak. And there's androgyny, and then there's realising there are a whole lot more things I want to explore about experiencing myself as a woman again.
I love what T has done to my voice... and I gather that over time, body hair may well grow more slowly, finer, softer - and that all of this is very individual. As for facial hair, it's not growing in massively but it is noticeable, and as I have dark hair with fair skin, I'm currently wondering about laser and have started researching that.
anyway, look forward to reading, sharing, and thank you for creating this community.
