A lot has gone on since the last update. I have decided to change from identifying as gender variant to gender queer, as I learn more about the community and more about what terms mean I learn more where I fit. Since my sexuality is no where near heterosexual and is shifting with my gender identity as well as still staying somewhat on the asexual spectrum, I decided to go with gender queer. I talked to the therapist yesterday AGAIN about being referred to the gender specialist and I think it’s finally going to happen! At least she thinks I’m stable enough. I’m not going to mention the last bout with the voices to the therapist or my case manager for a couple weeks, just in case.
I plan on getting my hair cut to look more masculine and also because it gets super hot here in California in the summer, and it’s already starting to warm up. My roommates don’t keep the apartment as cool as my parents kept the house and next year it will be harder as we will be paying utilities. I know people will have a problem with my hair cut, but I hope they will adjust.
I got accepted to go to T-Camp which is a retreat for people under the Trans umbrella at colleges in northern California; it’s two days and coming up next weekend. I’m not sure what to expect but I’m excited I got accepted.
I’m also starting NAMI’s Peer to Peer class in mid April and I’ve been trying to get into that for like 2 years. It’s either been in the wrong county or interfered with my school schedule. It’s 10 sessions, twice a week.
So lots of exciting things coming up!
