If I Were The Last Person On Earth

I would still transition, but...

when i ran into another group of people, and one of those people got sick and needed surgery, i would feel guilty and like it was my fault that they couldn't get the surgery then. Because I would have used the surgery robot on myself.... :mellow:

Stop over thinking things.

You're not responsible for the world and it is not for you to eliminate everything that ever may be for you because "someone might need it". I see I'ma have to get you to put Alex first. And you got to. Because if you're not taken care of , even worring about anybody else is destructive. You're 'sticking' them with not just a "regular" human who wouldn't be able to save them anyhow but a "deminished" one cuz you neglected yourself. You are not doing anybody any favors when you do that. People are not meant to be one anothers "rescuers" . In the very best scenario all you are capable of is guiding or teaching someone to take care of themselves. But never ever do it at the expense of yourself.

YES! I will do it in a heartbeat because I'm doing this for me not others. Even if there were small groups somewhere on the planet with one trans-friendly group and the other being trans-phobic, it's still a YES!

Everybody in real life cannot see me as female anyways, they see me as "that boy is a huge weird who somehow look like a chick and will have his male part snipped off" I do not care at all anymore, because I'm doing this for myself and ONLY myself.

Ooooh also this emoticon which I actually never seen before: :ph34r: looks SO CUTE! Ninjas are cute to me. :lol:

YES YES YES. While how other people view me is a big factor, and a big dysphoria causer how I view myself applies too. The haters wouldn't know, and even if they did let them hate. I would just leave them before they could do anything. All I need is a nice Will Smith I Am Legend-esque canine companion and I'll be set. Come to think of it if there weren't other groups of people I wouldn't need a voice, but I may still practice for the hell of it and maybe the robot surgeon could do that too.

The answer to question 1:

I would still get the surgery. There's no other people, so anyway, I can't reproduce. And, like Donna said, I don't really need to please anybody else xD Or even repopulate the Earth. Generally speaking, I don't feel that urge of responsibility - just let nature take its course, and let me get meh HRT surgery! Not to be selfish, but if I'm the last person anyway, I don't see the urgent need for me to not get the surgery...

As for question 2:

Hm. Sounds a lot like Earth xDDD Everywhere you go, there's gonna be people who are trans-phobic and trans-friendly, right? So, y'know, why worry?

Earth has it 100% of the time!

Interesting questions, though. :'D

Heck yea! And if I was the last person on earth, I'd loot every clothing and shoe store I could find, maybe especially the lingerie sections :D

Yeah... :D

Yep. I'd do it. And I would gladly live alone on Earth, actually.

And about the small groups elswhere... Hmm... So I'm not the last person after all? Well, if they're trans-friendly, then it wouldn't be a problem, I guess. If they're transphobic... I don't know. Why would I want to meet them? Why would I want to tell them or anything like that? I'd just... live my life without having anything to do with that group.

But if I found out that they don't know much about this stuff in the first place... I'D LIEEEEE!!!

      That's what I've done and you're right, it helps.  I used to focus solely on my body being wrong, what I thought of as body dysphoria.  HRT gave me congruency in my head and I worried far less about the body issue.  Now, without hormones, I've lost some of that congruency and the body dysphoria has returned somewhat, but I now understand (I think) that my brain has a dysphoric problem that needs attention.  I need some E to rewire it back to the way it was.  From one angle it seems like I've gotten it all twisted around, but somehow it makes sense to me.  I think.  Like they say, this is all a process... a journey not a destination.

      Yes the phone interview went well to say the least.  It helps being a veteran when your being hired by a disabled vet owner and everyone in the company is a vet as well.  His bread a butter is government contracts and hiring me evaluates his companies status to include LBGT compliant too.  I just got a $15K per year raise same vacation and a much shorter commute time to work. The timing is a bit overwhelming and I am feeling a ton of nervous anxiety this morning as I am truly not all wrapped up in VT, but I have always seized opportunity when it is presented so I had to jump.  I'm thankful to @Patti Anne and all her support and love and I am very excited that our life together is starting sooner then later. Also a big shout out to our newest friend @Tori M who lives fairly close to us in Oregon and is excited for us to get back there.  Its nice to have a new friend in place when moving across country.   Though honestly I have no intentions of driving my stuff off a cliff so.......  No to Thelma and Louise!   More to come shortly.   I have a phone therapy session in a few minutes so I have to close for now.

      Congrats that’s awesome. I’m glad you two will be together sooner than later.

      Yesterday we were out and in our area we are still wearing masks.  I was also wearing goggles.  My hair has gotten longer and my upper body has atrophied a bit and looking at myself in the mirror, I was like omg I so come off as female.  I’m not pursuing social transition at this point so I’m (trying to?) present male.   It’s something I’ve had to put a lot of effort into over the course of my life.  Anyway yesterday I totally got the sense I was coming off more female.  The longer hair, the body language I have always had a tougher time controlling and the mask just all combined together.     🙎🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

      This this this this!!!  For me I have always had more of a female brain, and that’s been really confusing.  I didn’t really get that is was gender dysphoria until later in life but viewing this through the prism of having a female brain (as opposed to being trapped in a man’s body) has made it so much easier for me to process.

      Be wary of cliffs. 😋   Congratulations for the both of you! This is a big step and I wish you nothing but luck and happiness!   Hugs!

      Well, Shawna and I had some crazy things happen today. The Good news is she's not coming to Oregon to visit. The other good news is it sounds like she was offered a job today about 15 minutes away from our house. It's a government contract and they want her to start yesterday. So, needless to say, things are moving along really really rapidly. It's looking more like I'm going to fly to Vermont and we'll both drive back with a truck loaded with her things. She was talking about driving alone, but there's NO WAY I'm letting her drive X/C by herself. We'll drive together, Thelma and Louise style.   So, as things firm up, we'll repost with progress notes.   Update: She just texted me and she's definitely been hired! They want her here on 6/29!    PA and SL

      I didn't get all the way through.  It was useful to me, but coming to this site was more useful.  It's really useful to read the sections about feeling alienated from the boys and wanting to be with the girls, but that appears in so many stories.  The piece that I was trying to figure out for myself is why don't I care so much about presenting as a girl IRL.  Here, I present as a girl because it's my inner self and I feel very girly inside most of the time.  But I just don't need to present that way for casual interactions in the grocery store.  I think.  I guess I won't know until I try it.  Still figuring it out, but I don't feel the aching need which so many here express.  I feel the aching need to communicate as we do here, that's where I feel most girly.  I want to interact IRL that way with my friends and that's the biggest mystery for me, how to get those interactions with close friends.  I think I understand it now, I was always holding back because I didn't want to be seen as being flirting.  Now I can just say what I want honestly and I think it will turn out better.  After quarantine, right?   All of that leads me to the most important thing, which it is all very individual.   I read and I read and I read.  I find authors who have a voice who seem similar to my inner voice, but no one is the same.  I'd say my closest match is Adrienne Nash.  I like her because she resonates so much with me.  We're all different sparkly snowflakes, that makes it hard for us to figure out what we are.  But it is all valid.   Hugs --Grace

      Yes, a minor can change their name. A minor has to fill out this form https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/nc500.pdf. It requires either getting the parents' signatures or issuing a notice to allow the parents to object.

      Thanks for all the replies. I’ve just kept playing on the humor. It just gets frustrating at times. the funny thing was there was another mechanic that had long hair too and they never said much about it. I can only imagine what will happen when I get my ears pierced haha. I don’t want to involve hr yet because I’m not ready to come out at work yet. Susan I wish my hair was like that unfortunately that is a wig. My hair is at the bottom of my ears now so it’s progressing.

      Thanks Jackie!
    • Patti Anne
      Thanks Em! It's definitely more updated.   Things are moving at the speed of light with Shawna and I! We've had some HUGE things happen this morning. We'll update as they firm up! 
    • Dana Michelle
      I am also from California and I discussed some of the issues I had with name change on this thread: My advice is: bring three copies of each form; bring change, cash, check book and credit card; bring envelopes.
