This teen’s reaction on getting first hormone dose is unbelievable
When some undergoes a life altering change, the only thing that person requires is support from his loved ones. If they support them, the person can overcome any obstacle on the way to achieving what they want.
A teenager from the city of Detroit, who decided to change her gender, finally got the permission to do so from her psychologists and her mother gave her a surprise that made her emotions to flow out uncontrollably and something that is worth experiencing yourself.
Here is the beautiful story and you can also watch the video of her reaction on the last slide.
1 14 year old Corey
A mother of five from Detroit Erica Maison stunned her transgender daughter Corey with her first dose of hormones. The 14-year-old had been waiting for this moment for over two years. As normal teenager, a usual day for Corey is filled with riding her penny skateboard, playing Call of Duty on her Xbox, and fixating over makeup. “She has more than I ever had my entire life,” Erica said.
2 What is hormone therapy?
Hormone therapy is customarily most valuable in adolescents before their secondary sexual features have developed.
Hormone therapy is useful when gender dysphoria is treated with gonadotrophin releasing hormones. Especially if your child has gender dysphoria and have reached adolescence, they could be given hormone therapy. These gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues are synthetic or manmade hormones that overpower the hormones which are naturally created by the body.
Some of the crucial modifications that happen during puberty are determined by hormones. For example, the hormone testosterone, which is created by the testes in males, helps motivate penis growth.
As GnRH analogues suppress the hormones that are created by your child’s body. They also overpower adolescence and can help postpone possibly difficult physical changes caused by their body becoming even similar to that of their biological sex.
3 The reaction on getting hormones
The minutes after the recording stopped were sensitive for both Corey and her mother Erica. “We were both crying and shaking. She literally took my breath away, as she has never given me a hug like that before. I have never felt so much love from her than that moment. It was a mixture of pure joy and relief from us both.”
“This was it, this was the most pivotal turning point in her life, and we both knew it,” Erica said of the emotions captured in the video. When Corey was in the fifth grade she was intimidated so badly her mother made the decision to pull her out of public school and begin home-schooling.
4 Struggling to find confidence in her identity
Erica then started a hunt for a therapist who focussed on treating transgender children to help the family through the process of Corey’s conversion. Ultimately she was headed towards the gender clinic at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. “At that appointment our lives were changed forever,” Erica said.
At the clinic and during her treatment, Corey was administered a puberty-suppressing graft just a few months later. “It’s usually a fight to get the insurance to cover it for gender dysphoria, and we were fully prepared to write letters, make phone calls, whatever it took to get it covered, as it costs $21,000 just for the implant — that didn’t include any of the doctor or hospital fees for placing it surgically,” her mother said of the process. The family was informed that the process would be fully protected by their insurance.
5 The video
The video shows Erica asking her daughter to search behind the cushion as she had hid something for her. Though Corey knows that something is fishy, she eventually goes to search behind the cushion and finds a bag.
In the video you can see the instant Corey comprehends what’s inside the box. “She squeezed me, and I stopped the camera so I could hug her back. Neither of us let go for what seemed like an eternity.”
