If your struggling please read / The wanderer returns
« on: February 07, 2020, 01:00:30 pm »
Hi you lovely lovely people  ;D

It's been ages since i've been on susans but i just wanted to say to anyone that may be struggling out there to keep going, it does get better. Honest!

I came out & went full time last summer and never looked back, sure there's been some personal sacrifices for me to transition but i had to do what i had to do, right?

I'm going to start to re-train starting this Tuesday- i'm going to become a Gender Identity Councillor !! Sure it will take a few years but i honestly think i'm going to love doing that.

At work I've just applied for an extra role - Global Gender Identity Officer, even if i don't get this i'm still going to do my bit in helping whoever does get the position. Hell i'm even helping to organise the company's involvement in Birmingham Pride this year.

No idea if i'll be back on here tonight / tomorrow or whenever but you can always find me on twitter -@jobloggsonline

Here's the oldest pic i could find & few recent pics of me -

It's good to see you Jo.
Looking cute and happy in your photos, (the more recent ones..)
Good luck with landing the job position. Sounds like your ready in either case. 
Glad you have found a meaningful career path towards helping the future.
Not really twitterbound, but see around somewhere :)

Wonderful to hear from you Jo. You are looking really well.

I wish you every success as a Gender Identity Counsellor and hope you get the Gender Identity Officer role at your present place of employment also.

Sending you love and happiness. I also went fulltime last June.

Hugs
