Therapy, so far

Alright guys! Here’s how therapy is going.

I’ve had some homework that I haven’t done. I was supposed to write something for my mom about what I expect out of our relationship. What I want from her etc.

Now I have been assigned something that I’m actually working on. A pro/con list for coming out to my mom as transgender. The pro list cannot consist of of stuff that results from T or surgery. So I can’t put passing more there etc.  So here’s the problem, I can’t think of ANY pros! Except maybe not having to hide it. But, other than that! I have no idea. If you can think of anything PLEASE post and let me know.

That’s the other thing. Eventually I will have a “T” letter, and a letter for surgery. So, what do I do? Do I start these things without telling people? Do I tell them and risk loosing everything. Then again, what WOULD I loose. I already don’t recieve much financial help or anything.

Other than that therapy is going ok. I look forward to every session and I really enjoy getting to talk.

Also, if anyone has ideas for topics for me to discuss then let me know and I’ll do just that!

    Maybe a pro would be being honest with your mom and allowing her into this part of your life and building a more truthfull and understanding relationship with your mom so she can support you and be there for your journey into the person you feel you are.

      The bad thing is that my mom is not going to support me and be there for me. Read the intro post I did and you’ll get a better image of my mom.
      she’s a WONDERFUL person (NOT).

      Thank you for your comment though and being honest is something I will add!

    I have to write a very difficult letter to my parents as well, just thinking about it makes my hands ache. I have no idea how to begin or how to say what I feel so they would truly listen and try to understand. So when you do manage to write your letter, be sure to blog about it, I am now a subscriber and eager await your post 🙂
    Good luck.
