Hello all, Annorah Here

Hey there I go by Annorah Grace. I'll try not to ramble as I'm oft prone to 😅 . I am heavily questioning leaning more towards the trans side. I guess that's the best way to put it. I mean I do "feel best" when I'm dressed up in my alter, as I like to call her but less and less when I'm Annorah the more and more I feel she is who I should have been for so long now. Alas.

 

I didn't find this place as my therapist found it for me after I asked. It seems like a lovely place so far as I've lurked since Monday. As i'm questioning the only people that are aware are a very limited few. I guess what I'm looking for is community and people to feel safe around and ask questions and learn more about being trans and transitioning and all the fun and scary stuff. Well, it's all scary right now if I'm being honest.

 

I hope to make a small home here.

 

Cheers,

Annorah G

Welcome Annorah Grace! Glad you're here. I've found it a wonderful place to find answers to my gender questions, the people here have been very supportive & accepting. A book recommended here I've found very helpful is You and Your Gender Identity by Dara Hoffman Fox. They also read it on YouTube.

 

Hugs!

Welcome, @AnnorahGrace!  When and if you feel ready, please do ask any questions you'd like.  So many of us here started in a similar place, and we offer support that can help reassure you that you're not alone.  There are numerous books, web sites, etc. that we can recommend to learn more, if you're interested.

 

I completely understand your observation that it feels scary at the moment, because I've been there.  The good news is that, as many of us have found out, many of the milestones we felt apprehension about turned out not to be big deals, and in fact quickly became routine.  

 

With best wishes,

Hello Annorah Grace.  As my friends have said, Welcome.  Please ask questions when you are ready.  We've all been (or still are) where you are.  The journey doesn't have to be scary when you have others to  speak with.

 

Cheers, Jani

Thank you so much, I highly appreciate it. I'm aware that many have felt the same things I have and that makes it easier to talk and discuss. I would love those resources. Like you said I do hope that they aren't "big deals" but they sure feel like they are 😅

 

                                                                                                            

 

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone! :D

A few online resources:

Two books by Alex Iantaffi and Meg-John Barker (available for purchase or, oftentimes, at your local library);
with helpful descriptions of gender identities and useful exercises

  • How to Understand Your Gender
  • Life Isn't Binary

At some point, I would invite you to browse through the Therapy and Therapists forum threads here.  Many, many of us have found it extremely helpful to work with an experienced gender therapist. It can really provide ways to make progress in both understanding your gender identity and in considering options.

      IDK, Sakura.  I never liked it when I was on interview boards if an applicant gave too much personal info.  You'd be amazed at the stuff people would admit ("cop") to without needing to do so.   I think a good approach is to provide whatever info you do have, verbally if you have to, and tell them you're trying to get documentation, but that there are personal reasons it may be difficult.  Give them whatever you can give them, like the names of at least a couple of prior employers.  If your memory is such that you can't do that, I'm not sure how many employers are going to accept that an applicant simply can't recall their work history, without medical proof.  Again, U.S. laws prohibit them from asking about your medical history.   I am not expert enough on these issues that offer better advice than that.  You need to consult with employment experts, who may have better solutions.   Carolyn Marie

      There is some really helpful information to unpackage there. I think I'm going to try building my cv again from scratch and see how much information I have, then look into what resources are available in my area (if any).   Thank you both so much.   May I follow up with a few more questions, if you don't mind?   Do you believe it would be plausible to start a fresh cv citing that I have prior employment history within x line of work, that I'm not able to reveal due to a former abuser?  Obviously not an approach I want to use, but a significant chunk of my work history and certifications are out of my reach.   What would be the best way to go about explaining a seemingly late start in employment history if I went to an employer over here on a trial or volunteer basis to get experience to start my cv fresh, deliberately omiting my prior employment history and qualifications?   (sorry this seems a little vague but part of my former employment is very identifying, despite not being able to recall the employer well)

      @SheenaTHave you thought about perhaps a necklace that would hide well enough under your shirts, or perhaps a skin-toned polish on your toenails? I did that for a while before my wife and I separated.
    • Hannah Renee
      I quite imagine they would suit you well. Go for it.

      Used to be, I only saw shades of black, gray, tan, some red. Since realizing who I really am, I've discovered so many new colors, I need my daughter's help figuring out what goes with what. Never paid purple any mind, except when my older daughter wanted that for her bedroom walls. Now I'm sitting here wearing a lavender skirt. Heavenly.
