Morning gorgeous XX
How are you all today? Did to get out of bed the right side? Good. If not, I feel you; but go back to bed right now and get out of the other side please! Lol. Seriously, it’s not pleasant when you wake up to a bad morning, I’ve had many of them in the past and I don’t envy you at all.
The reality for me this morning; though, is that today is a good day. I had my injection yesterday and my stomach hurts. But the doctor, a younger Asian lady who’s name I forget, was a brilliant doctor and we hit it off really well. She even shown me how to do the injection myself. We got on that well that I nearly invited her over for a glass of wine and a natter about being Trans. (If you’re reading this doc, the offers still open; give me a shout! – oops!).
But what she said got me thinking about what it’s like to be Trans, and what does Trans actually mean. It got me thinking about how the Trans world currently sees itself and how I, as an individual, see myself within it.
I read a lot about the different types of thinking within the Trans community – The old skool 1990s train of thought, the new age of inclusivity, the gender wars of the early 2000’s, etc., and it’s a lot to take in all at once. Reading it all makes me wonder just how the rest of society is coping with all this. I mean; I wrote this blog so I could understand it because it’s difficult and I’ve got an IQ of 142 (or thereabout)!
Then I read something this morning, it was a post about ‘detransitioning’ – a term used in the Trans community to mean someone who is going back to their original gender (or going off HRT, which I am on). And there’s a lot of discussion in that area, with some very intellectual thinking; judging by the post I read.
Anyhow, I’ve copied the link here because it’s relevant. It’s relevant to my train of thought, it’s relevant to where my head is at and it’s something I feel I need to understand.
We’ll to give you an idea; my current train of thought is this…
“Now that I have experienced contentment in my thoughts, do I stop here? Or do I carry on and complete the transition?”
Which has got me thinking as to exactly what my transition means to me. How far do I want to go? What do I want to achieve? Who do I want to be?
Time to work that out I think. But in the meantime, take a look at the link below and see what you think. What does it suggest to you?
Answers on a postcard…
Ps. Just to ally the critical mind. This post doesn’t mean that I, personally, am thinking of detransitioning – Far from it. But it does indicate a change in thought processes. Which is something I’m going to tackle in my next post.
