Before T and passing, mates! 12 years old for life!

Recommended Posts

Mates!

 

I'll try to answer your messages and comments on other posts as soon as I find the time. So many notifications!

I just really want to share this with you right now.

I'll try to be brief. It's five a.m. and I didn't sleep last night so... I've been awake for a long time. Tired as hell now!

 

First thing's first: I cut my hair today and it feels brilliant!

It's so weird.

I entered the hairdresser as a girl and left as a bloke.

Bloody hell, mates... It's seems that I don't need T to pass! 

 

Something extremely surprising happened to me today.

There I was, short hair and boyish face, walking into a store. I had a paper bag on my right hand which had something with an alarm inside. Basically, I bought a product the other day and they forgot to take the alarm off. So, every time I entered a store, there it went, the "Beep!". 

This time was no exception. As soon as I walked into the place, the alarm went off. 

I looked around, searching for a store clerk, wishing to warn them about my "cursed item" and ask them if they could store it somewhere, so they wouldn't think I was trying to steal something from the shop. 

It seems that I looked confused from an outside perspective. I couldn't find anyone.

There was a girl who worked there though that I had yet to notice. 

She approached me cautiously and with a worried look upon her features. She got close, stopped and said: "Son, are you alone? Do you need help finding your parents?"

 

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

That! Happened!

Not only did she call me "son", she also thought I was a bloody lost child looking for his parents.

 

Mates, I'm 24. I'm 24 years old. 24! 

And physically still female!

This was brilliant!

My lips turned naturally into an awkward crooked smile (yes, my smile bloody changed all of the sudden and naturally, with no attempt whatsoever).

I did voice work in the past as well as play boys in Theatre. I know how to make my voice appear more, not "manly", but boyish (not toddler like though! shiver... like a 14/15 year old). So, happy and amused as hell, I answered. "No, miss. It's just me. I have a blablablablabla alarm thing blablablabla..." 

When it comes to the child issue, in her defense, I'm 5ft tall.

 

But yes, that happened!

 

Oh. Just changed profile pic. Attempted a natural smile. Failed. It seems that there are things that haven't changed. Smiling for pics... Forever a failure.

Peter Pan!

A dream many of us have shared at least one time in our lives.

If I could get back to that place, I would in a heartbeat!

Congratulations on your new-found status.

You can definitely hear the excitement in your writing!  This sounds wonderful to experience something as validating as being gendered as you want to be.  Congrats!

Congratulations! Being correctly gendered always makes me smile too.

 

I've heard FtM's complain about the being mistaken for being super-young before. Probably why so many grow beards when they can.

 

I wouldn't worry about the picture. If I take a good one, it's a happy accident. I can't "look natural" on purpose to save my life. Cute is completely out of the question.

 

I'm very glad you're happy. It makes my heart smile.

 

Hugs!

      congrats on getting your labs. don't be surprised if it takes longer than a week to get your scripts done so you can start taking your hrt. I got my labs done last week and it has been over a week and I still havent heard from my doctor on her assessment of my results. still hoping I can get my hrt before my next doc appointment.

      Don’t worry @Sandra6sandy9sand. I can’t wait to get my ballot in the ballot box.  We need some real change and fast. The saying...If you don’t vote, you can’t complain...is so true. Let’s get out there and do it!   Susan R🌷

      Sorry for the latent response here I knew I had read it before but I could not for the life of me remember where I had read it. How do I start a blog? Where do I go to do this...

      Hey Mex We all do that. Jackie is right it dose  take a lot of confidence and courage to wake up and be happy with you.  I know that sounds like some stupid Hallmark bull, but 2 yr ago i was ready to end it. I get the bills the booze  and wrote out a will. I took the bills drank the booze. Had the craziest nightmare. The next day i did not die,, i piss off. But it gave me some hope. Today i still get depress but not as bad and i stop judge myself against other CIS. Just head down , work save,  continue to fight  medical for my surgeries and work out.   Be safe, be proud and be happy being you

      Congratulations, Emily! on your commitment to self improvement and the opportunity for compassionate service to your fellow human beings. You've made a great choice.  Now, go and get it❣️
    • KayC
      That's a great post @Sandra6sandy9sand!  thank you for sharing your thoughts and connecting with what I am sure many of us are feeling. Regardless of our personal situations or differences, if somebody cannot see how interconnected we are by Covid and societies problems then they are truly lost.  This is actually a great opportunity for a fundamental change in America's "constitution" and direction (i.e., America's social conscious and morality ... not the actual Constitution... I agree it hasn't changed)   VOTE 2020❣️  
    • KayC
      That's a great attitude Leah, and that you have been able to settle into a comfortable place.   I see the value of therapy for myself (and others here I assume) as helping us to find our inner voice and start to live truly as we feel we should.  Its difficult to sometimes deal with the negative feelings as we may try to convince ourselves that the path to our journey should follow societies expectations. I hate labels, I hate the idea that we are somehow required to declare/come out, but I also know that's the reality that society places on us. YES!  I agree❣️❣️❣️

      My name was simple the female form of Andrew and used my moms middle name to honor her...

      My daughter is a little shy about her transition. First of all, after nearly 5 months, she looks like a girl and hard to distinguish otherwise, especially at her young age. How did it workout for you or your daughter? School is not going to start right away in person, however it will be online and he name is very feminine. The school faculty has been updated about her new status, but the students don't know as of yet. I appreciate you sharing your experiences so I can better prepare her.

      OK so here might be a fun question for everyone.   After you started presenting as either a woman or man, have you ever either dated someone you knew, like a guy friend or a girl friend, or have you been hit on buy someone you knew? I would love to know if transitioning changed the friend dynamic or made old friends think differently about you. You don't have to respond and you don't have to get specific with any details. I'm just curious if old friends see you as a completely different person after your transition.
    • TransMex
      I compare the way I look with how other women look a lot. That's practically all I do all day at this point. I want to look like them.

      Bri2020, I wish you luck, just know that what ever happens, you have us to get support from.. Did you like the duct tape hair removal thing.. lol
    • HollyNoel
      I had my first gender therapy session last Tuesday. I told her thatb I've always known that I was a girl fron the youngest age and that I wished I could have switched places with my sister. I told her that when I finally told my mom I felt like a giant crushing weight had been lifted off my chest. At this point in my life I feel I'm ready to have the surgery but I know they want to make sure I'm sure thats what I really want. I feel that that is the best course of action. I may feel I'm ready but I haven't even lived as a woman yet. Though I still feel I'm ready. I wont regret having it. Been a dream of mine since I was 12.
    • Bri2020
