1 Day To Go…

Countdown - 1

Ok, so tomorrow is definitely the day I go to my doctor. I’m excited, nervous and also freaking out. My anxiety is off the chart right now. I know it’s what I want and therefore what I need to do, but stepping into the unknown is always scary. As I was taught in therapy: the more I do it, the more it becomes…ok, and normal.

Something that very few people actually acknowledge or even realise when it comes to the transgender community: practice.Read More »

Whilst talking to my best friend about how I’ve been feeling lately, she told me about a family friend whose son had transitioned (or in the process of transitioning? I didn’t catch that part) from male to female. Bear with me now as it’s going to get confusing talking about people involved using only pronouns!! I could use names, but at the end of the day the people involved have a right to anonymity.Read More »
