came out to my dr

Recommended Posts

Alexx21

I just came out to my dr  i have already came out to my friends and family apart from my mother who am going to tell her the next time i see her 

my dr told i must live as a male for a year before  she can refer me to the gender therapist  but most of them are in Glasgow  its the next big city  to Edinburgh   i dont know Glasgow  that well 

but i crossing that bridge when it comes   she said they want me to be stable in  my mental health  and not cut or Od  or put myself in danger of any type 

i am focused on this   the  only thing i am worried about is when i come out to my mother it could make me a little unstable if she has  a  go or saying anything negative

but i know my mother will not understand and most like say its a phase or some other  rubbish  she isn't going to stop me from my goal 

everyone else i have told  are supportive

Alexx, it sounds like you're on the right path. Your mother appears to be the domineering type who would object to anything you might do. If you have to cut her out of your life, so be it. The doctor is right in that you have to be mentally stable before anything can be done. For now, you need to focus on that. Get the medications that you need to accomplish your mental stability. Take it one step at a time and you'll succeed in your goals. Please keep us updated with your progress. We're here for you and we care.

I'm glad you were able to be open and honest with your doctor.  that is a great step Alexx!  Don't worry about your mother. You will be ok and she will come around in time.  Instead please care for yourself and listen to your doctor.  She supports you in your goal and getting stable and dealing with mental health is the most important thing in your life.

 

Hugs,

Good news Alex.  As Charlize says focus on you, not your mother. You are important and valued so look after your life. Your mother has her own life to live.   As to a referral to a Gender Therapist, today can start your first year of Real Life Experience!

Hi Alexx,

 

It's surprising how much difference hair can make in how we feel. And it sounds like you're having a pretty good day today. That makes me happy! Enjoy getting out to your group. I'll be thinking about you.

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf🐾

It sounds like your prepared for a beautiful day.  Enjoy it.  You certainly deserve that and short hair makes it easier.

      Agreed! The bad times always pass. I’ve still been up and down emotionally. Everyday is a challenge but I gotta keep moving forward. It’s just hard not being able to freely dress when I need and want to. Lately, I have been watching drag queen shows and love it! I would really like to see one in person. The queens always look so sexy!

      I pluck mine and the initial clearing was brutal but the maintenance is easier since I get the hairs when they are lighter in their initial growth stage.  Eventually I will have them done with electrolysis.    Jani

      The only problem with waxing is that it seems to need to be repeated too often.  When i stared plucking(pre-full time) i cried as it hurt so much.  Seemingly that pain has lessened or i've become used to "beauty" over comfort.  It does help that my brows are very thin and light in color so if things get ahead of me all most see is what i draw with my pencil.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hang in there!!!  As we're all aware here, the human body is an amazing thing and sometimes it just doesn't respond as we wish.  It sounds as if you've got a good doctor working on your team.    Jani

      Oh, I'm behaving myself.  Humor is my way of coping with things that frustrate me, and boy does diabetes frustrate me.  I do everything right and my numbers are still terrible and I still have gotten to the point where I don't produce any insulin on my own.  The nice thing is it's just as frustrating for my endocrinologist.  He's worked incredibly hard at trying to find a solution, and what progress I have made wouldn't have happened without him.
