So I applied to the Trevor Project over the weekend. Haven’t heard anything yet but it’s only been 2 days.  Hoping I can get back into something I can be truly passionate about again.

@JustineM, That would be so wonderful if you could be offered an opportunity to work with them. I think you would be perfect for that organization. Keep us updated. They really do some important work for the community especially now when the younger community needs them now more than ever.

 

Best of Luck,

Susan R🌷

Thats great! I have noticed that I am still so passionate about so many of things I was prior to transition. I am the same person just a better healthier version! That is so difficult for people to accept and understand.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I used to work EMS, well in therapy today I talked about how I was still having nightmares about a couple of the calls. Felt scary but good to get it out there. Long story short, I’ve been unofficially diagnosed with PTSD. I really hope I can move on and lay these nightmares to rest.

That's good news Justine,

My thoughts on the PTSD issues I face, is a lot like grieving for a lost family member. You don't get over it, it doesn't go away. You learn to get through it. I made my first therapist cry when I answered her question. What's the worst call you've been on, and what keeps you up at night? So we relived that event, we both cried, and she recommended another counselor, and never seen me again. I'm at a point now where I have a PTSD therapist, and a gender therapist who have my approval to talk about me to one another. They really are helping. I hope you find the same reassurance as you move forward.

 

Hugs,

I am sorry to hear this! I was recently diagnosed with PTSD. My diagnosis came from being an RN in the COVID icu at my hospital for the past 2 years. 
 

We don’t think of the events we are experiencing as causing long term effects until all is said and done.

Well that is no longer an unofficial diagnosis. Went through the assessment with my therapist last week and I’ve been officially diagnosed with PTSD. I guess I’ve kinda known in the back of my mind but to have the official word is kinda scary but relieving. 
 

On a brighter, happier note in that same appointment… drum roll please, I got my letter for my name change. All I need to do now is scam… I mean come up with the money so I can file the paperwork! The plan is before the end of the year to legally be Justine Karla.

Also not trying to brag… but my sisters are absolutely AMAZING! I have so incredibly lucky and blessed in my journey so far. Nearly my entire family has supported me.
