I am a person who doesn't produce hormones. AMA!
Note: I don't make *some hormones. Sorry to imply I didn't make any at all!
I was born with Septo-Optic Dysplasia and Panhypopituitiarism. I don't make: growth hormone, oestrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormones, and the stress hormone cortisol. I'm also blind in my eye. I take pills multiple times a day, injections and T-gel to make up for this. I have other conditions such as anxiety, PTSD, OCD and I'm on the autism spectrum.
Quick FAQs you may want to ask that I can already answer: * I have a vagina. * My eyes don't look any different to most people's. * I identify as agender. * I'm not asexual. I am bisexual. * I heard the hormone pun joke already.
EDIT: I will have to scoot off in a bit to do some boxing but I shall return later!
EDIT 2: Right holy cow that was a lot of comments folks! I've got a few more in the inbox but I need to head to bed. A few people have asked if I'm crowdfunding for my surgery and if they can help. Yes I am. And if you'd like to help you can go to my surgery fundraiser. Thank you. I'll answer more stuff and PMs in the morrow. :)
EDIT 3: Right so I'm going to take a bit of a break until the evening so I don't get carpal tunnel! If you're not convinced by these proofs, I'll snap a picture of a letter I have from my endocrinologist when I get home, if you'd like. I appreciate the kind well wishes from everyone and I'll respond to PMs when I've stopped getting over 150+ messages every time I log in!
EDIT 4: Right so, you wanted more proof?
- Letter from my endocrinologist with diagnosis
- Second Letter
- Third Letter
- Cortisol profile test letter
- Thyroid clinic letter
- Image of my medicine
EDIT 5: I know I have some unread messages from this thread but I'll be taking a break from this thread for a week. I wna tto say thank you for all the kind messages and to anyone who has helped me with my surgery fundraiser. I didn't expect my ama to be that popular or for people to offer to help me. Thank you.
