I haven’t posted recently because I’ve been working, working out, and getting ready for to restart my MSW in April. I’ve also been recovering from the foot surgery I had in July, and the recovery process has left me feeling deflated.
Things I really want you to know right now:
March 14 is when I mark 2 years on hormones. Never been happier, never been more content with my life than as of this moment.
March is when the default comes off my student loans and I can restart my MSW program. Have to say coming out and starting hormones helped give me the courage to even try for my MSW.
Transgender people are not a fad. Men who come here and tell me I’m engaging in a fad are sad, pitiful losers. Anyone who comes and leaves hateful comments, such as telling me I’m “fucked in the head,” “following a fad,” etc, will be deleted and blocked.
Last month, I went to the Secretary of State’s office and got my gender marker changed on my license. It was one of the happiest days of the year, especially when everyone else was complaining about January dragging on and on.
I put myself on the dating scene and have some hits already. If nothing else, I’m discovering plenty of people to hit the Apartment Lounge and Rumours with.
I’m a behavioral technician with Centria Autism, and I am really happy over there. Being trans is not an issue with them, pronouns and bathrooms are not an issue with them, and the kids are wonderful. Once again, I’ll say that hormones and living authentically helped give me the courage to find a job in my field.
So yes, life is wonderful right now and I plan on checking in more often. Just because I don’t post every day doesn’t mean I’m no longer trans.
