Got my GIC appointment

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have just got me Gender Identification Appointment.

Super nervous about it and it is in 3 weeks.

Had to go private because the waiting list for NHS in Northern Ireland is beyond ridiculous.

Hopefully this will allow me to begin my HRT around September this year..

Oh and Happy St. Patricks Day everyone. :)

Hi all,


Just an update. GIC done and referred to the HRT Clinic. Bit of a waiting list, even for private. Should start HRT in about 6 months. Super excited and can't wait to start feeling again.

Hi Dear, Congratulations 🎉, I just had my first psychiatrist counseling. Now they wanted to see my wife. She is supporting since 10 yrs for cross dressing, but now I have decided for HRT and SRS. Now it's a really big question how to share this with wife and kids 15yrs and 9yrs.

Hi Radhika,

Thank you for your congratulations. 

Can't give any advice on letting your wife know. I discussed and we agreed together when the appointment should be and what the HRT plan was before booking my assessment.

Kids, I'm having the same dilemma, though my children are still young (8 & 11).

My advice would be: Tell them like you would anyone else. There's been enough representation in media and on the internet that they know what trans is. I've seen people tell young kids as simply as, "Daddy was born a boy, but it made him sad. Now he's going to become a girl and he'll be much happier."


Kids are accepting. They love you.
