UsernameOpti... : (12 July 2014 - 08:22 PM) Why does the media continue to mistakenly identify anti-TGBL haters as, "pundits?"  Doesn't calling a blithering bigot a "pundit," qualify as oxymoronic?

Where does the time go?

Posted by TiffanyS , 16 April 2011 · 82 views

Hello again everyone

I've been wanting to post a blog entry to let everyone know how things are going and whats happening in my life but I haven't really gotten the chance with working two jobs and trying desperately to get out of debt (much to my own dismay).  First of all yesterday I went to another doctors appointment for a checkup and to increase my dosage of estrogen and to get prescribed some mild antianxiety/antidepression medication.  Everything went really well, eventhough when I first got there, the nurse that intially saw me was visibly uncomfortable checking my weight and takeing my blood pressure.  I mean she was nice and didn't say anything but I could easily tell because she didnt make any eye contact, didn't speak very much to me, and left the room as quickly as she could.  It didn't really bother me too much at the time but I thought it was pretty rude of her but thankfully my doctor was, as always, nice to me and really wanted to know how I'm doing and seems like she truely cares about me :)

Recently I started talking to my work about the possiblility of me transitioning at work and much to my suprise, the talk went really well.  My store manager emailed the corporate head quarters and they said that they are completely supportive of me and my need to transition.  It was really great to hear that and now I am considering weather to stay at the store I am at or transfer to another store.  I am debating transfering when my hair is a little longer, and my body has changed a little more.  Im hoping to go through with my transfer around july or august or september.  I figure with my increased dosage and the fact that I will have been on hormones for over a year that I should be able to pass by then, at least I hope so.

Other than that, my life has been pretty tame.  My brother finally came around and has started to accept me for being trans and wanting to fully transition.  It took him a while but I think we can really mend our relationship to the way it was or possibly even be better than what it was.  Im working on figureing out where I want to move to in the summer.  Living with friends and my parents has been alright but I really need my own place where I can do what I want when I want and have total privacy.  I think it would also be nice for everyone else because I do work such odd hours and the days I have off I won't be bothering anyone being awake at 3 or 4 in the morning.

Also I've started to plan a career after I come out full time and I am planning on going back to school to get my nursing certification.  I've talked with a lot of people and they say that the medical field is very accepting of transgender people and are very much an eual opportunity empolyer.  So hopefully I will be able to start school early next year and be ready for a new career shortly after that.  I know its a long time away but I can really use this time to work and save money and ready myself for the coming months and anticpate the coming changes in my life.

Lastly I've stared going to more group meetings here and I've found them a lot more informative than I used to.  Also i've seen a few other girls closer to my age showing up to them.  Its nice to connect with other tgs who are closer to my age and really good to talk to them in person.  Eventhough most are still earlier in their transition than I am but its still great to talk to them.

Well thats all I have for now, hope everyone is doing well

<3
