Three years ago today I had a massive panic attack and ended up telling Mrs Stace everything
As a result we talked all night and she sent me to the doctor, who sent me to the VU
It's strange to look back now. It's only three years ago, and yet it seems like a lifetime.
In the mean time I have fallen apart (the three or four months after) and gotten myself together again
I have had 2 1/2 years of therapy leading to the conclusion that I needed to transition
I have had several firsts, first time out as me, first time meeting my boss and friends etc.
And I managed to get through them unscathed :)
I have transitioned at home and work.
I have had 9 months of anti-androgen and 6 months of hormones
I have started, and finished, speech therapy
I am a different person, and yet still the old me in many ways
I am me :)
I am so much happier in life!
What on earth are the next three years going to bring?!
