Um. For you know who? Does that mean your girlfriend or me, homo? (Homo is the most no homophobic way possible, mind you!) Lol anyways...
I'm happy for you. It may not be important to many around you, but it is important to me because sadly, I care. And do not use that against me! -_- Continuing on, I'm proud of you for taking a huge step in your life and a huge step in hopefully making you happier.
As for the first few weeks, I wouldn't expect many, if any, physical changes. However, you should expect, and prepare for, your mood and energy level to change. It happens rapidly. It will probably take time to adjust to your emotions as A) you will be going through a second, different kind of puberty and B) as the testosterone introduces itself to your body, your female organs will do that whole shut down thing soo... you will go through a sort of menopause. PREPARE FOR SHIT TO GET HOT. (And no, I don't mean you. )
Also, it won't change you as a person but while you adjust to your emotions, you'll probably be a super asshole. I sure as hell was. It sucks for your family and shit. I'm sure you'll get over it fast, though- or at least at your T levels out. Let your girlfriend know until you are at a standard dose, you may go through changes mentally. Or some shit like that, as a sort of warning. (Not huge, but just moodswings. Don't be scared! Lol.)
Other than that, will you keep your name since it is kind of unisex? Or will you pick a different one?
Course I'm talkin about you. I don't want Tania to watch my stupid videos. The last thing she needs is something else to make fun of me about. And I'll only take advantage of the fact that you "care" in inappropriate moments, don't worry.
I've already told people I may have mood swings. Worse case scenario I just lock myself in my room.
I was totally restless last night night though. I had to force myself to sleep and couldn't sleep past 7 am, even though I always do no matter when I go to bed.
As for my name, yeah I'm gonna keep it. Why change my name if I don't have to? Plus, it's easy for my gf's family because they can pronounce it in Spanish. I just have to fix the middle name, "lyn." So I'm gonna take my Dad's, "Curtis." It's pretty damn expensive to change your name in California though. Filing fees plus running it in the newspaper for weeks adds up to hundreds of dollars.
Are you gay? Bisexual, trans, unsure? Or just support your LGBT friends?
