“You can’t go to work in that shirt,”Mandy said. “At least, not without a bra and cami.” You’re probably right,Jess sighed.Too bad I don’t own any.”I can’t l believe you’re still committed to doing this,”Mandy said.”Look what it’s done to you.”Jess didn’t look at his girlfriend. He felt a mixture of shame,sadness, l and anger. Why did any of this have to happen to l him? Hun, what it’s done is let me live a life free of l pain. Remember what I was like before the l treatment? I could barely get out of bed in the morning.I could barely speak! I wasn’t your boyfriend anymore, I was a man waiting to die.”This treatment isn’t given by any doctors, though. And it’s obvious why! Jess, jeez, your tits are almost as big as mine. And those hips…” Do you think I like the side-effects? I hate them.
But the alternative is a hell of a lot worse. There’s no cure for M.S., it just gets worse and worse. This way I can at least live a normal life.”But this isn’t normal. You’re turning into a girl..” Mandy shook her head. “I just don’t know if I can handle that. If we can handle that,you know?” Jess nodded sadly.I do, but I can’t go back, hun. I’d forgotten how wonderful it is to just feel… healthy. I don’t want to be like this, but I’d rather be a healthy girl than a sick boy. Mandy let out a big sigh. “All right. I don’t know what the future holds for us. But if you’re gonna go with this, you need clothes that’ll fit your new curves. Come on,we’re going shopping.”
