For the second time now covid canceled my srs this time 4 days away from having it. I am so upset it feels like the world keeps screwing me over

Have you had your surgery yet?

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Natalie,

I know you were so disappointed with the prior surgery dates being canceled.
I also realize that this is so major and can bring about nervousness.
I could say to try to relax but that’s obvious.  I am not sure what I could say to give you some comfort.
You are a woman and you have wanted this for so long.  You have endured.

I am hopeful that all turns out well.  Please share with us about how it goes, as you feel comfortable in doing so.
Try to get some rest.

Hugs,

Chrissy

Covid has been a blessing and curse, I do believe given enough time possibly few more years I would have realized im more happy and myself when not hiding who I am, but being home alone so much I have been dressed in female clothes more than male clothes most of 2021 so far and even bought alcohol dressed in female clothes with my eye shadow still on I did put my male jeans over but under my jacket was my shirt and bra! I have a 1st appointment in just over a month then another one after that for trans health care and I'm hoping it won't be long from there to start HRT. I'm mid 30s. AS time passes thinking being alone I realize so many signs in my life stood out I wished I was a girl got jealous when in grade 9 some ladies wore skirts why would I feel that way and in my room alone wear my shorts going in one side to pretend it was a skirt and not knowing why unless I was born in the wrong body lol, I was into "girls music" in grade 7 and earlier lol I basically did live in denial for over a decade at least suppressed my true self so much passed it off as next life I hope im a girl. I don't want to live the other half of my life in the wrong body it's not healthy to suppress myself, well maybe longer than that but still.

Good luck girl! Happy healing after the surgery! If I start HRT this summer (im hoping) it will be at least until 2023 realistically before I have some of the money saved and that would mean me drinking much less alcohol smoking less <moderator edit>  but i'd be willing to do it, maybe my YouTube will grow enough im close to being able to monetize already so I believe in miracles. I remember being very young wishing I was born with a vagina I felt so akward all my life lol.

Transition wise I don't think it has had a massive effect. Though it has me not socialising alot and feeling nervous amongst people again. I do feel I'm going backwards.
It has also stunt the ability to find new work.
This has slow My wagons transition from D16 to K24 alot lol.

I like seeing the odd positive impact from it.
One I had was having more time to save for my BA, and when Lockdown eased in August/September time I had mine done.

Covid has been a blessing and a curse at the same time.  I was going to start HRT in February 2020 but pushed it back to April partially because of COVID-19.  It has been nice going on wearing a mask so if I have a little stubble in the second part of the day I can still run out wearing a mask without anyone seeing it.  Plus I have put off practicing makeup since its just not worth putting it on then wearing a mask most days.

Legal was also semi nice since it was online so my wife was able to work that day and then just join the zoom call as was my father who just moved to another state.   Changing my name seems to be more of a nightmare it took over two weeks to even get the court orders and its going to take 6 weeks to change social security, plus 6-8 weeks to get my new ID that shows me as female with my new name.  I renewed my ID back in 2019 and I seem to recall it only took 2-4 weeks back then but maybe the name change is making it take longer.  On the plus side the temporary ID's in MN have greatly improved since then since my temporary ID has my actual picture on it, hopefully I can continue to not need to use it.

Absolutely. Stopped it dead in its tracks. Finally had the balls to come out to my doctor after ~10 years or so, I know the system here works slowly so I hadn't gotten a referral by the time COVID hit a few months later...and that was the last in-person doctor's appointment I've been able to have, for any reason. Keeping myself sane by keeping busy - still working - and telling myself I'm just borrowing this body for a while, "playing" drag queen. It's much easier for me to handle thinking of myself as "fabulous" than "female". And being able to hide behind a mask helps, too.
