I Have A New Provider

I had a most wonderful visit with a new provider—A psych provider. She is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. The reason why I am seeing her is specifically to get a letter of recommendation from a competent mental health provider for vaginoplasty surgery. WPATH’s Standard of Care (SOC) recommendations for this surgery includes two letters from […]

Legal Name Change is on Its Way

Well, I have been contemplating making a legal name change for some time. It wasn’t a priority when I first started transitioning last July.

A Quadruple Play

This day has been mind blowing. I am on gender cloud 9 x 9. In order of appearance: I saw my roommates presenting as woman for the first time. I am rarely there because I am practically over my girlfriend’s 24/7, but I went to pick up my new picture state ID card. The card […]

Yesterday saw a significant event in the drive for the LGBTQ+ community to gain full legal protections against discrimination. What happen? The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled in favor of three individuals (two gay men and a transgender woman). They were fired for being gay and having a transgender identity respectfully. SCOTUS […]

An OMG Times Infinity

That is oh my goodness. I made a phone call to a transgender surgery center today after finding out the closest surgeon doesn’t except my insurance. They only work with my secondary, and they won’t accept it the because of the primary, something about state rules. Initially, I was devastated. Every other emotion was just […]

I Became Stephie

Wasn’t I her along. Deep deep inside it may have been, but I was not aware of it. My memories are so fuzzy growing up it is hard to recall my gender feelings. Some gurls know from very early on. Some have memories of dressing in gurly clothes as a kid. Well I don’t and […]
