That is not a small victory! Congratulations!
I have a girlfriend!!! She like me for me, the real me. I asked her out yesterday and I was so excited when she said yes that I ran around my backyard for a good 20 min.
thank you, im still giddy about it.
I was on another site I frequent, and a trans girl just asked how I was trans ftm (she was saying that I looked like a cis guy).
While I was getting groceries today, a cute girl gave me a smile. It was one of those moments where she smiled, looked down and back up at me and smiled again.
I felt super masculine/male and confident today, it was great.
I went to church for the first time since I discovered that I'm trans. My mom gave me a big hug and told me that she's with me all the way.
I got called Ms. by a salesperson at a grocery store without even trying to present as a girl. It was very surprising, because I still have a men's haircut, and haven't transitioned at all. I was wearing skinny jeans and a woman's cardigan, and I think that in combination with a pretty youthful face threw him off. Once he got a closer look at me he addressed me as sir and apologized, but in my mind I was like "dude there's no need to apologize, you just made my day!". I've never had anyone use feminine pronouns for me in real life, and it felt very good.
Saw my doctor today, he said I could start HRT in about a month or two! Just have to get some blood drawn and go through an intake process.
Put in an order for some cute sports teams t's, Rangers, Jets, Yankees. Two of each.
Also I've been wearing whatever I want and not caring. It seems like my parents don't care either.
Next week my T dose will be raised, and I'm officially in the process of getting top surgery. My doctor said it is very possible it could happen this summer!
so I've mentioned that my regional manager was on side with my transition and doing so much to ease my coming out at work. she cleared it with me first a couple weeks ago, and yesterday she had a talk with the two managers in my building and this morning one of them asked me into his office and congratulated me on my transition and apologized in advance if he messes up my pronouns etc. I told him it was ok, and thank you. it went really well. I figured it would with this one. the other can be an ass at times so we'll see how that goes. but yeah, a victory for me.
way to go man, big happenings for you my friend.
ok a couple victories a girl could get used to these, went to the queer prom put off by one of the groups at the university for queer people to go and be the person they couldnt while they were in High School, of course i went dressed properly in the right shoes, dress, wig, make up everything so much fun.
and today is my 'transiverary' its been a year since i put the first patch on my side....... such a full progressing trans-formative year it's been.
It's been getting warmer here and I like to run outside, but I hate wearing men's sport shorts. They just give me a huge amount of dysphoria. So I ordered a cute pair of women's athletic shorts to wear when I work out. Being out to my sister has made it a lot easier to wear what I want, and it's great.
It's funny to hear the other side. xD My little victory is oldish (one month?) and opposite: I have new sportswear and, despite being from women's section, they hide curves without being too baggy and one of the hoodies flattens the chest like magic. I managed to run without having to stop for dysphoria-induced sickness.
It is funny to hear the other side, and I'm glad you found clothes that make you feel better. Working out is bad enough without adding dysphoria to the mix
I had a wonderful birthday yesterday, either 51 or 1 depending on how you count it. lovely dinner with my son, and then a great session with my Trans* Support group.
Belated happy birthday!!!
thank you so much.
