Ello!

SteamGirlEva

Hey, I'm Eva, a trans-female from NH. I joined this site since I'm pretty isolated here and there's not many trans folks where I live (that I know of). I started hormones in March and this summer has been the greatest time of my life. 

 

My family consists of my 6 year old son and my girlfriend. We are expecting another child in December. I'm so excited because he (as far as we know) will only ever know me as "Mommy Eva" since my name was legally changed last month.  

 

I work in a deli and write in my spare time. I also spend a good bit of time playing video games and card games (Magic the gathering), as well as a new found love of fashion and makeup.

 

I hope to make friends here, or at the very least, find people who understand these feelings I have. It's super hard to explain this stuff to a cis person.

 

Anyway, thanks for letting me join!

Hello Eva and welcome to TransPulse!   I think there is some variability in services in NH, north to south.  There is a support group that meets in Rochester and if you can travel, in Portland, ME.   Please join in the conversation and ask any questions you may have.

 

Cheers, Jani

Thanks Jani.

 

Unfortunately I live in Grafton county. There is very little up here in terms of anything really. Traveling to even Rochester is about an hour away. :(. I do work with one other trans person, FTM, but I never know how to start a conversation with him. Neither of us are stealth so everyone knows, but it seems like an awkward thing to bring up.

You might look to Dartmouth-Hitchcock as they do provide transgender health services and they may have contacts or provide support functions. 

 

This link has some data you may find useful, although I cannot vouch for its completeness.  There is a group in White Water Junction also.  

http://www.tg-nh.org/resources.html

 

I travel about an hour when I go to Rochester and quite a bit more when I travel to Portland.  I find them both well worth the effort.  You should certainly think about it.  

 

As you say neither of you are stealth, striking up a conversation with your coworker should be easy.  Initiate the conversation by saying you're looking for [support group/health care/emotional support] or whatever and who he know of any sources?  You don't necessarily need to become best friends but since you have something in common, pooling your resources and knowledge would be of benefit to both of you.

Hi Eva

 

Welcome

 

I know the feeling of lack of trans folk as I don't know any at all here, although it is some while since I last investigated. Logically there must be many! It does not worry me, and I have a steadily changing circle of friends, but the change in viewpoint means I just have to be aware of how may partner may see things.

Hi Eva, really nice to read your intro! It sucks you are in less supportive environment where you live, but I hope you will find many helpful people here that can give you the support that you need. I'm sending a smile and a kiss your way!

 

Hugs,

 

Sunny Kay

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani

      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Congratulations Shawnna on your one year anniversary.  I hope all your dreams come true!    Jani

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
