Now my therapist knows …
« on: September 17, 2019, 04:20:32 pm »
Today I told my therapist about my problems with gender identity. I was very nervous before and afraid that she might doesn’t take me serious when I tell her that I feel neither completely masculine nor feminine. But she was very kind and understanding. I also told her, that I’m not out of the closet that far and she responded that I should take all the time I need to reflect and think about my gender identity. I think I’m non-binary/genderqueer/androgynous, but I’m still not 100 % sure about this.

I’m glad it all went well. I’ll see her again in 4 weeks.

Sounds very good.  Taking the first steps is great and taking time I think is essential. Can't say it is an easy road to navigate but I am getting to know things about myself and that I would never have if I did not connect with my primary doctor.  Take care!   :)
