    MtF Transitioning in Adult Ed

    So, I've been slowly transitioning at the adult school I teach at. I started pretty much casually and piece meal. In the beginning, I was super worried about each little change I made to my wardrobe. For example, when I lstarted working on my weight and needed new pants, I bought leggings instead. But nobody seemed put off by it, neither my co-teachers nor my immigrant students (I teach adult ESL). Then, once I got comfortable with that, I experimented with women's tunics to cover the long torso I inherited from my dad, but thank goodness KingsizeDirect now offers longer length shirts that can function more like dresses (selecting the Tall option for these longer length shirts has the bottom hem landing about mid thigh.) Recently, I've slowly experimented with makeup once I feel like I got a handle on it: first some mascara which I like only on my upper lashes, then some concealer/foundation for a random bout of persistent acne, and finally lipstick. Again, so far no one has reacted at all that I can tell, except for one specific student who already was known for minor disruptions. I live in Arkansas, which isn't the best for protecting trans people at the workplace and in school, but certainly not the worst. Am I jumping the gun at all, changing how I present before starting any procedures like HRT? Should i keep doing what I'm doing or put a pause on it until I'm ready to transition completely and inform my principal and change my documentation? The therapist I've been seeing hasn't mentioned anything one way or another, focusing instead on my improving self-image and personal confidence.

    Mom does not approve

    I came out to my mom about 5 years ago, and from the get go she was appalled. She said that she would never stop loving me, but she did not approve of my being transgender. I realized then that my actual transition would be an uphill battle, especially since I live with her. This past week I was finally approved to start testosterone. I was SO excited! I called the pharmacy and found out that it was covered by my insurance - even better! But when I told my mother, she immediately fell into a depression/suppressed rage. She has been snapping at me about every little thing that I do and sleeping a lot. In short, I feel like a have come out to her a second time because of her reaction. It’s a major downer to my happiness of starting T. I don’t want her to be sad or angry at me, and I know that I’m not doing anything wrong, but it hurts to know that after all this time she is still so disapproving of my transition. Just needed to vent. Thanks for reading. -Trey
  4. I'm so sorry I haven't been on this site much. just been busy and so on but now, I have an update! A few Fridays ago...I finally got my name changed. 4 days ago, I went in to get the paper certified I think it is, and now, on Monday, we will begin the process of changing my name on everything. Once I get that done...Testosterone here I come!
