    I'm pre-t and just recently recut my hair after going through a really feminine phase in denial. I work in retail and today a lady came up to me and said, "Excuse me, sir?" And I don't know if she could tell the excitement or not but it felt so good to be sir'd again.

    so this happened. i shoveled my drive, and went to help dad next door. we were chatting about how my brother went on his deliveries in the height of the storm. dad said he (brother) had the nerve that he (dad) did at that age. i said i had that nerve once or i just didnt care except for ___ (son), now i have something to live for. dad just looked at me, for a second and said yeah your nerve changes when you get older. i laughed and said 'well he has more nerve than this girl'...... he looked at me what? 'he has more nerve than this girl' i know he heard me but he didnt say anything. i left it, sort of like planting seeds. waiting to see what sprouts....

    I was in my Anthropology class (one of my electives I have to take), and I love that my professor doesn't take attendance or have a list of face/names like my Theatre professors do.
    I was taking notes, and I always put my name and date at the top of the page, and I knew I wasn't going to be handing it in (since my given name is on the roster), I put 'Dylan' at the top of the page. It was just for me, but it made me smile when I did it.

    Came out to a family friend. We had a great conversation, she was extremely supportive. About halfway through she looked at my wife and said, "Well, this explains a lot!" I'm glad I'm not just going crazy, and this is something that has been going on for some time.

    I just got a couple of 'Joey packer pouches', and so far they're really comfortable, and I think I'm going to like them more than packing underwear.

    It went pretty well. One of the managers is being a dick about the dress code, but my store manager let's me follow the female dress code, so it matters little what he thinks. I feel great! Work is nicer and more pleasant for me now, overall. I'm female according to the customers so I get treated pretty well. Some of the employees have complained about me being in the ladies room but my SM says I'm supposed to use it so it doesn't really matter. They spelled my name wrong on my name tag (Brook :/) though. lol

    I haven't visited the site in quite some time but I was feeling pretty low again and decided to stop here cause it cheered me up. I was reminded by it though. The other day, I went to try on a second hand prom dress and the lady didn't even question it or anything. It made me so happy and it fit fairly decent and I can't wait to wear it to my junior prom. I'm not even going to think about the consequences until afterwards.

    Came out to mom and best friend from high school. My mom told me that if always be her son (sigh), but said she'd work on the pronouns and new name. Best friend was much better, he was all like, "Congratulations! That's fantastic!" Felt good to tell people despite the difference in response.

    Had my psychiatrist appointment today, which is the final step before being referred to a gender specialist :slight_smile:.

    I intend to start hormones before them, I can’t wait to get boobs :slight_smile:

    so I had my son and his girl friend out for the weekend from University. Saturday night I hear her call me from the other room, "Sarah, can you come here please?" it made me smile sooooo much, she usually uses my birth name when calling me.

    Came out to parents and at work. The company name is too close to my new name, so I'm still going by my old name at work, but now I can wear whatever is comfortable.
