Yesterday was quite a monumental day for me really!!
Over the past few months I have had appointments with 2 different consultants at the Sandyford Clinic (Gender Identity Clinic) in Glasgow where I have had to prove to them without any doubt that I have the wrong body!!
And yesterday was the day that I found out their professional opinion. And as you may of guessed they were both of the opinion that I am Transsexual and that I can go ahead and start hormones and work towards Gender Reassignment in the future!!
Good news? Kind of!! It’s a bit of a double edged sword for me at the moment in that, Yeah I’ve got the conformation that I wanted that the medical world believe me and understand my inner turmoil, but on the other hand for the rest of my life no matter how gorgeous/feminine I get I am always going to have the label “Transsexual” follow me around!!!! Which to me is societies way of saying “Pretend Woman”!!! And therefore “Freak” in my head!!
I know, I know!!! These are probably just my own issues, that I am going to have to confront over the coming months and years!! And that I have to learn to embrace the term and all it means to the wider society, good and bad, but that is going to be a challenge in it’s self!!
But for now I plan to just celebrate that I am not mad and that I know the medical experts don’t think so either! xx
So here is to day one of officially being Transexual!!! And all that entails xxx
