Just wanted to get a post up detailing more or less where I sit currently.
I went to see one psych about getting on HRT, and was told that it would take anywhere from 8 – 12 sessions with her ( at $180.00 per session no less!) for her to evaluate me.
OH REALLY? No thanks.
Through a trans male friend of mine ( yup going the opposite direction! ) right here in Calgary, I was able to hook up with a much better psych, who just happens to be gay as well. This saves a whole lot of time explaining anything about shame, hiding, fear, self hate… ALL of that.
1 Session with him, moved onto the next round! Easy peasy! 🙂
Thanks to his referral, I am now waiting for contact from Dr. Raiche’s office, who is essentially THE Gatekeeper in Calgary, the last stop before Dr. Jablonski (Endocrinologist, hormones).
While I wait, I have to also consider how I am going to approach coming out at work as well, and the effects it will have. It is the final step to me going full time.
Frankly I am terrified.
I will make it work, but it scares the hell out of me just thinking about it.
Peace and love!
