That is so lovely! I can imagine what a relief that is.
i agree with willow, i wish all parents were as accepting as your step mom.
Whenever I go shopping, I always take my Victoria's Secret pink shopping bag, it's just my little habit. And I love it when stock clerks call me " Maam " and ask me if I need help reaching a heavy item. Last week, I was dressed in a full dress and high heels, and the store manager did everything she possibly could, to assure that I remained a delicate lady.
I love being treated like a woman, like you said, it's the first baby steps toward our new lives.
Wow you're so lucky
My mom was asking me if I intended to keep my hair short because I looked like a boy. That's the nicest thing she's ever said to me
Thank you all so much it is nice to have an accepting step mom, and an old friend of mine found out today....
Her words..."thats awesome"...totally just made my day
congrats to all of you for your victories no matter how small or large ^.^
Saw the endocrinologist today for my 6-months-on-HRT check-up. Everything is perfect, says he. I know I sure feel good these days!
It's been hard keeping positive lately but at least I was able to come out to one of my siblings who asked about my preferred name and pronoun.
Also going to meet with a doctor in a few months regarding starting hormones.
Just came out to a dear old friend of mine - she could not have been more supportive!
My throat has been feeling scratchy and itchy lately. I think my voice is going to drop soon!
I passed as male again!
But then I spoke.
And was apologized to profusely. For 10 minutes.
Why must I have such a feminine voice?!
Wow... So soon?!
Got in touch with a charity to get rid of the old clothes. I also tried a LGBT center, but the charity was quicker, and I'm in a hurry. The charity is targeted to runaway teenagers, so I still feel like I'm doing the right thing.
I managed to get my father to call me V. ... Even if this seems like nothing, it's way better than nothing, a.k.a sub-zero nothing. I might go by V. for a while.
I'm also about to face my doctor again, and this time it's over with the pretending, and beating around the bush : I am what I am, either he likes it or not. I'm done with faking stuff in general, but specially about my condition:. If it doesn't work, try something new... And after all... I'm a man, damn it, why should I hide it?!
Went to the store and bought makeup on my own, I didn't even use self check for it~!
Fantastic Stacy, glad to see you around i was wondering if you were still here.
Thanks so much! Still around, just not as often as before - hope to be around more often going forward.
good for you, confidence is a good thing.
We had mock interviews at school today and the interviewer called me "young man" and I was so happy! It was short lived because I had to tell her my name, but this is the first time this has happened and it gave me so much confidence(!)
I had a job interview and gave my birth name and was presumed a girl though I looked pretty androgynous. After they told me I got the job I got up the courage to tell them I was trans and went by a male name. They were totally cool about it and it felt really great because it was the first time I'd claimed my identity and come out to someone that wasn't in the lgbt community.
Good for you, that's really great. i'd call that bigger than small.
