I was going to name the blog entries after whatever song may be playing at the time but it was too tiring. Hence the title of severe procrastination because i meant to start this blog about 5 months ago.
So hey my first blog
Who am I? (As i'm not a very active member on the forums :/)
I'm a 20 year old photographic art student hailing from the welsh valleys. I've been living with gender dysphoria for about 4-5 years. When i was 18 i did more research into what i was feeling and came to the conclusion that i might be transgender. Either that or a asexual androgynous person. I don't mind either.
I decided to do something about these feelings because they were making me depressed alot, my parents didn't take it too well and preferred to consider the entire thing as a phase -.-'
When i was 19 they moved away and i moved in with my sister, where i had a lot more lee way. I began binding a lot more. I was eventually able to confide in her and she was pretty supportive of me, setting me up to go to the GP in my local area who set me up with hospital consultant (*)
I finished my a-levels in that year and moved away from sister to university and had even more leeway, i didn't feel as depressed as before but occasionally i would go days without eating because i forgot and i couldn't sleep well at night.
(*)The appointment for consultant came through during this time but he was unable to assist me because i was not in his catchment area anymore -.-' he directed me to my local GP and he set me up with a psychologist assessment which didn't go well as they believed i wasn't ready to be transferred onto the NHS and so on.
I'm now seeing a Councillor at my uni and she's advised me to write about how i feel at times, i used to do this anyway instead of cutting.
So yeah. After two years i'm still no-where, all I've manged to do is re-vamp my wardrobe.
My parents have no-idea that i went to all the GP's and doctors either, before i went to uni they said i should wait a year and they'd discuss it. I eagerly await August >.>
Sorry this is so haphazard but if i think about how i'm writing something, i forget what i was going to write.
