On the MALE side of my body - the left side - I now have unwanted hair growth. You know, rogue course chin hairs and wacky eyebrow hairs that just come out of no where. They don't even know they are ruining the entire landscape with their bad behavior. They don't seem to know the rules, let alone, follow instructions. Very male.
The female side of my face - the right side - is still is obedient and not prone to bad behavior. I think these hairs are still playing by the old rules and are compliant and obedient. Very female.
There are other symptoms in other parts of my body, too. My left boob has shrunk a bit and is now smaller than my right boob. This was an unexpected change. I have become lopsided. And guess what else is out of whack? The joints on the male side of my body are the ones that can't suck up any discomfort! They have become a wuss. Each time I get out of a chair, for example, I now hear that new "male voice" in my head whining about a little pain on the left side. Such a baby! The right side will just patiently wait, and wait, and wait in silence for the left side to get up and be a man. The right side is still a trooper.
Yes, I miss the good old days when my body was in balance and the male side followed the rules of balance. But I'm adjusting to this new partnership, My goal is just to get 'him' to take out the garbage without complaining for now. These small goals, I believe, may help him know he is wanted and has important jobs still to do. With luck there will be a reset in the balance of power and we will learn to get along.
