Morning gorgeous xx
How are you all doing today? Hope you are all well and life is treating you good; if not, I do empathise and I’m sending my biggest hugs out to you.
So, first of all allow me to apologise for the lack of recent posts. I started this blog as a way of helping me deal with the thoughts that were going through my mind; as transitioned from my old life as a man to my new life as a woman. And I can now say with almost absolute certainty that my social transition is now complete. I am socially accepted as a woman wherever I go. I love it, I love my life now and loving my new life is assisting with my mental transition massively – I very rarely correct myself now. I refer to myself as Vikki and my dysphoria is much less evident (although it still exists).
So what have I been doing recently? Why have I been so quiet? Well… Between November and February I was working. I’d managed to land a contract working in my old favourite jaunt of I.T. – Application Support Analyst to be precise, nice job, paid well but ended way too soon. Ah well, que sera.
What that did for me though; was it gave me time to process everything that had happened during the previous 12 months. Time to come to terms with it all, to close the open wounds and give them some space to begin the healing process. And time to learn about myself & my place in the world. When the contract ended however, I found myself with a lot of time on my hands and an environment that didn’t fit the person I had become. Quite a few things didnt feel right about my life, and I desperately needed to change them – So change them I did.
Now I havent talked very much regarding the financial side of Transitioning (be it MtF or FtM) but it’s an expensive process – Very expensive. I’m not going into great detail now but what I will say; is I’ve managed to get this point very cheaply. It’s still in the mid four figures range though, somewhere north of £5,000 to give you an idea. The chunk stated above was around £750, easily – I got what I wanted though, you walk into my home and you are entering a feminine environment, there’s no evidence that a man ever lived here.
So I’ve done Me, both inwardly & outwardly and my environment. Next up is my job. How am I going to attack that one?… Hmmm….
Until next time. Much Love,
