    People in my school's GSA have been calling me my preferred name! Even people who don't know about my gender are starting to use my preferred name because they hear other people use it (they assume it's a nick name so thankfully I'm not outed).

    While I could have had them by now, I've decided to have my therapist write the letter of recommendation for hormones.

    Wait, you aren't on hormones already? No joke, I thought from your albums you already were. :slight_smile:

    My 10 year old brother as I left the house this morning: "Goodbye, brother!"
    I never officially came out to him but I guess he picked up on it. I guess he's happy to have one, with his two sisters!

    Also my dad rescheduled my first gender therapy appointment because my mom can't right now, and offered to take me if she can't... He was so unsupportive and in denial even a month ago... Is he beginning to come around? I'm nervous to even hope.

    No I am not good sir. I am just working with what God and Sephora at the mall gave me.

    And it is amazing that sometime if parents truly love you they will come around. Once denial is over, it gets better. Not an instant gratification but you do get some chance for the wound to heal.

    No, no hormones for me yet. Waiting for tenure confirmation basically, but getting tired of waiting so I'm actually starting the process.

    You aren't the only two who thought I'm already on hormones. I get that a lot.

    Got a date! With a guy! On one of my manliest days :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I have a feeling that I'm even more attractive to men when I look and behave like myself? The last time I had such a manly day I also ended up with a date invitation XD My latest ex also met me in not too feminine circumstances.

    Today, I called my bf and his mom talked to me like always, but my bf's brother (we babysit him while his mom is campaigning) called me his second mommy. I told him I am practicing on him when I get my own kids.

    Lately instead of my gender-neutral nickname irl I've started using my male name. So far in LGBT friendly groups.

    yesterday I have met my sexuologist for the first time to start diagnosis.

    this is sooo cute.:slight_smile:

    ---------- Post added 3rd Mar 2016 at 09:14 AM ----------

    on a personal note; i found out that i am next on the list to get into see a sexologist to explore my gender more fully and decide what, if any, path i want to take going forward with my gender expression etc.

    and, i got a date for a maintaince hearing regarding my divorce, so hopefully i can get the judge to sign off on the actual divorce papers and let me be free to date etc.

    so i mentioned in another post that the lawyers changed the date and i was driving home yesterday and got to thinking about timelines etc. i realized that the new date for the divorce hearing is 3 days before my son's high school grad. and i have to sit next to this woman on that night for dinner and the Grand March etc. so to be the real parent here and to be adult, i have decided to get my lawyer to push it back some more, maybe the following week or so. it's killing me on some levels but it's best for him.

    im counting this as a victory because as a dad and a mom i want whats best for him and it's his night. but i will be free and i will explore my gender and see where it goes!

    Not so much a small victory, but a big one! This morning [00:00] I came out on facebook, and 18 hours later. I have over 100 people having 'liked' the statuses about it. My mum has called me Nicole, my stepmum did and my dad just continued to look awkward.
