Things you expect from 2018 transition-wise?
« on: December 31, 2017, 05:28:24 am »
It's New Year  ;D!

So what changes are you waiting for to happen next year?



---
Me:
Legal name change ASAP
Getting a referral to a gender clinic ASAP after that
Hopefully completing that stuff in a year & waiting for T ;D
Plus working out & flattening my chest

!!!REBIRTH=legal name change on Feb 16th 2018!!!
This is where life begins for me. It's a miracle I finally got it done.


My body is the home of my soul; not the other way around.

Ohh this is a good one! Positive- I like it!

Here's my list..
- longer hair
- less body hair
- boobs
- flatter tummy
- curve to my hips
- less upper arm fat/muscle
- at least 1 consultation for ffs

Edit:
- work on my voice more!
- be more confident in myself/isolate less
- maybe switch to injectable estrogen
- see more facial changes from hrt

My chest to continue healing
Facial hair-come on already  :P

Might try to get my birth certificate amended. About 70% of my facial hair is already in after 2 months minox so I hopefully the rest will appear in 2018. Supposedly I'll have the chest taken care of surgically by the first quarter of 2018 but at this point I'm not sure I believe that; I haven't had the surgeon's letter yet or any appts. with them.

I want to start working out regularly as well.

I'd like to accrue a year's worth of T in my backup supply as well. I just like to be prepared like that.

I think I might finish off transitioning in 2018. Scary.

While walking if frigid temperatures yesterday I found myself thinking the same thing!

1. referral to endo and starting HRT
2. watching my hair continue to grow and looking for regrowth while on finesteride - very important to me.
3. starting HRT and experiencing a change in my inner life - this makes me smile just thinking about it :)
4. beginning electrolysis to get rid of this stupid facial hair!
5. witnessing physical changes in first, second and third months in face, body and skin.
6. beginning to sort out whether I will live stealth since I know I will never come close to passing, and cannot afford FFS.

2018 should be a big year for us all :) :) :)

- Continue jumping through hoops for GRS.  It'd be nice to actually have it in 2018, but that may be optimistic.
- Continue electrolysis for facial hair.  Be nice to get that finished, and it may be do-able in 2018.
- Continue waiting for birth certificate changes: July 2019 is the earliest likely date for that.  (Darned Brits!)
- More boob growth.  C'mon, girls, even an A would be nice.  I just want a letter!

I hope I get better at makeup lol. I'm excited to see the continued effects of HRT, I feel like my body hair is a little thinner now but I would love to see it thin out even more!

I have 2 huge things for 2018, I need an apartment and then I need to publicly come out. I was hoping to come out on the first day of spring but I think it might be too soon :(
January 8th, 2017- Got sober
February 9th, 2017- Came out to my first friend
March 18th, 2017- First session with therapist
July 8th, 2017- First time in public as Maddie
July 17th, 2017- Started HRT!
September 30th, 2017- 2nd time in public as Maddie

1.  Checking off items on a list my sister and I made of activities we can do as sisters.
2.  FFS consultation and whether I will even do this.
3.  Hairline restoration.
4.  Coming out at work.
5.  Voice work.
6.  Finish the facial hair removal already
7.  Find and hold for dear life an SO that accepts me.

Not trans related...
Exhibit at trade show and hopefully line up commissions.
I'm going to attempt to use my own pictures only from now on.  I will have a bit of makeup, but want me to show through now.

11/6/17 - came out to sister, best day of my life
9/5/17 - formal diagnosis and stopping DIY in favor if prescribed HRT
6/18/17 - decided to stop fighting the trans beast, back on DIY.
Too many ups and downs, DIY, purges of self inbetween dates.
Age 10 - suppression and denial began
Age 8 - knew I was different

Legal name change before I turn 31
Go vegetarian, and hopefully reduce my stomach.
Dye my hair red.
Learn make up and build a basic make up supply.
Save money for GRS or an Orchi, still trying to decide which.

Last year my "resolution" for 2017 was to start therapy, get my parents involved, and get on T. I did a darn good job in completing those goals - been in therapy since January, my parents have ben coming (mom more regularly than dad but he came a few times too), and i've been on T four months now.

I was just thinking about what i wanted to do for 2018. There's a huge list of things i need to do but i think i can narrow it down:

1) Name and gender marker change
2) Enjoy the physical changes from being on T
3) Start the process for top surgery (i have to consult with hematologist first and foremost - then find a surgeon - then set a date - i'm shooting for 2019)
4) Save up $$ for top surgery costs that aren't covered by insurance (and find out what IS covered)
5) Be healthier (start an exercise routine, eat better/healthier, lose the gut)

Top five, right there, and no particular order i guess. I've been working on #5 already with some good results, but the holidays sort of got me (hello mom's home made fudge). I think transition wise my next thing is going to be the name change. Once that's out of the way i can focus on top surgery. In the mean time, enjoying the changes and working on my overall health.

Not related to transitioning, but i'm always saving up $$ to some day open my own business - once i get my transition fully out of the way i can focus 100% on that. It's exciting to be one step closer!

1. Keep going with HRT. It's quite possible my voice will finish dropping, and my facial hair will really start to come in.
2. Keep saving up money and accumulating paid time off for eventual top surgery.
3. Wrap up some loose ends I never got around to updating after my legal name change.
4. Experiment with more clothing/hair styles to figure out what looks good on me post-T.
