After a particularly good session with my therapist--and I had a great one last week, too--I was washing my hands in the bathroom today and looked up and saw my reflection. And thought, "Good boy. But you really need a haircut."

So sometimes, I guess, I see the boy within. Even if he IS a bit shaggy.

I see a girl who wishes she had started transition a lot earlier, before her beautiful hair thinned so badly.

well seeing as i get a full body shot as i'm walking toward the mirror - my first reaction is always 'WOW that bitch's got great <breasts>'. 

I love you Nero! :) Made me spit my coke out! (Yeah and I am at work) lol :P



I see a man.. a young looking man.. normally first words to my head is "damn my hair looks
<poo>, damn it!.. Need a hair cut" If its a body shot "You cant really see those lumps much..
damn I look fat.. need to change"

Thats it!

I usually think "The bathroom needs cleaning" I usually only see the mirror in the bathroom

Depends where I look... If i look below the neck, I think: I'm pretty lucky and HRT (eventually) will only make things look better.  If I look at my face... I think about how painful FFS will probably be and how painfully I wish I'd known what would have been possible fifteen years ago.

Sometimes I see my online persona it's a comforting picture for me... Somewhere where we really aren't judged for who we are, we just wanna play games. Sometimes I see the person I don't wanna be, and sometimes I see the person who has great possibilities waiting for her in transition, and finally a very small percentage of the time, I see someone with anger brewing inside, needing a release and vent.
A merry christmas to all

What's that? Oh but it's too early for christmas you say? BLASPHEMY

That's funny, I was just talking about this in my AIS support group.
When I look in the mirror, I see nether male nor female, I just see the same face I've looked at for 20+ years out of 35 years.
And that's after being on ert for 17 months.
