I have learned something today. Why Woman seem to hold onto what seemed trivial at the time. A male co worker was a but unreasonable and the sheer intensity of the annoyance caught me off guard and it still bugs me hours later! I had to tell myself to smile and wave. The intensity of emotion you feel (positive and negative) on E catches me off guard some days.
Every day is a totally awesome day
Every day provides opportunities and challenges
Every challenge leads to an opportunity
Every fear faced leads to one more strength
Every strength leads to greater success
Success leads to self esteem
Self Esteem leads to happiness.
Cherish every day.

These days I wake up, stumble into the bathroom and see... a woman first thing in the morning, looking a total mess, no shaving and there is no questioning what I see in the mirror. The little doubting voices are just about ALL gone with only the annoyance of having to wait for surgery causing a little dysphoria. The amazing effects of laser - just one sessions so far blow me away. I took some really close up photos of my cheek and neck this morning thats 24 hours after the last shave and I really couldn't see much growth. A bit for sure, enough to maybe cause shadow at some point today but honestly? Even that is all in my head now.

I've commented before that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Its so close now. Local laws are set to change soon making changing my birth certificate gender easier. Once thats done there are no legal ties to being male left.

Hmm I took a photo today and I don't recognise myself...

It is so wonderful and uplifting Kelly to read yet another happy event in your update.

As you say there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you are now virtually there! Excellent.

A wonderful update for sure.  I remember the very moments in my earlier transition journey when I would step out of the shower and look in the mirror...  I was dumbfounded seeing the woman that I had become....   like you say, almost unrecognizable... then soon enough, it all looks completely normal and most of the shock and awe eventually dies down and I go on and live my life as my new self.

Your new picture and new Avatar/profile photo is most amazing as I recall most of your previous photos that you posted going back to February when I first started following and commenting on your thread....  CONGRATULATIONS to you for your wonderful progress and of course your willpower and determination to see this through so far to this point in your transition journey.

Thank you for keeping us up to date.
Hugs and well wishes,
Danielle

Today we had a national teacher march. 4000 people on the street and a large gathering at the end. In addition I lost count of how many random people I interacted with. Despite this.. NOT ONE PERSON seemed to see anything but a woman. :) I think that conclusively proves that I can not only pass but blend well even when interacting 1:1 and voice isn't a problem.

Great day!

Your continued and regular updates are what all transitoners should see no matter where we are in our journeys.

In the middle of working through a string of IEP meetings. One of my students has gender identity issues. The grandfather of said who I just met for the first time today looks at me at one point and asks how we are doing with those. This is interesting because this is a man who knows the signs yet never reacted even a little bit or showed any indication he saw anything but female. IN a meeting that lasted for an hour with lots of talking going on.

The evidence is overwhelmingly stacking up that I did it. All I need now is a few Ma'ams on the phone because I know that I look the part. Voice still has a little way to go. :)

No need to say it yourself... I would have liked to beat you to it.... you indeed "look fabulous and a million times better than the first one!" ...
... and I am most certain that any of your followers will say the very same thing once the photos are viewed.

YES, Go HRT !!!!
Thanks for sharing this most encouraging post and photos.

Hugs,
Danielle

Well I figured I could push the boundaries and use the women's changing rooms but in all reality with the gender neutral rooms available why? There isn't any need to.
