New hair colour time. Few more shades and I'll be happy. Given I'm 40% grey it should be easy to maintain...

Your new hair color looks great, but it is so much fun experimenting with shades and colors.
Hmmm, where is your smile in that picture ???

Thank you for sharing and posting,

I swear every term moving my classroom furniture is getting harder. I'm struggling to move relatively heavy desks now. Might have to start to work out a little... there is a cost to having low muscle mass!

Maybe your students who can help might help you move some of the desks too? 

A little muscle toning is usually good though.   :)

On reflection...

I am pleased to be able to show people that being trans is ok... and you not something to hide. But, today I found something that pleased me more. Dressed as I was today (which wasn't overly different to any number of women at the hospital to be honest) I just blended. So much in fact I sat there and watched the guys looking around for our group to arrive. I must have looked in his direction for 2-3 minutes and never picked me as trans... given he was looking for trans people to meet him he was primed. :)

Yay!

Had a good conversation with Linda (my girl friend) this afternoon. We are on the same page and have a good time line but its still two years before any major changes are possible in terms of living etc. I suppose good things take time. :)

I'm getting very good at ... waiting ...

A red letter day!

As mentioned earlier in this thread Transgender medical services in New Zealand when it comes to SRS were... very poor. In addition health insurance excluded SRS - and I tried many companies. Today it was announced that the government is lifting the surgery cap. This means many more surgeries will be performed and with a qualified surgeon now up and running things are looking up.

Realistically with the backlog its still years of waiting and I'll probably just go private anyway but there is hope now if money is not available.

On other fronts...

I feel I am more than accepted these days. Lately no one looks at me any different to anyone else. Today at the supermarket I really looked for odd looks etc. There aren't any. Not a one.  Been talking with my girlfriend. She will transition very soon (waiting on a really slow letter it seems) and it looks like in two years we will be able to implement plan start again.

For the last few weeks this feeling of ... calm ... is upon me. Other than genital dysphoria (will be resolved) I feel... right. Like I'm no longer fighting myself or my nature cause they finally match. I feel powerful, at home in my skin, very feminine, and no longer afraid of being me.
