Today is a day of smiles. I went the Multnomah County Courthouse for legal gender. Sure my drivers license says female, however if you don’t get a court order of gender change. You can’t change your birth certificate.
The state of Oregon has made easier to cross this hurdle. My doctor had to write a letter in a specific format for the judge sign the order.
After I get the corrected birth certificate I will be able to get a passport so I can travel hassle free to Thailand.
Crossing these hurdles can be daunting, however I realize I will just take this journey one step at a time.
Today was a wonderful day in my journey. I went for augmentation consult with the best sister ever.
I was getting excited about this step, however I did not anticipate the feelings of joy and how feminine I would feel as we tested the look of different sizes and shapes of implants.
The doctor put me at ease and of course Sis and I had our running jokes. I am realizing that I have hit a major step in my transition. I have emotionally feel female totally. I see myself as female and who I used to be has slipped away.
This journey has not been easy, however at this time I feel my world is blossoming.
I will post later about the technical and fun antics we had.
This Friday I am going for the consult for augmentation and yes I am excited.
I have so many thoughts on this. As a transgender woman I have say countless time how I wanted to have the body of a woman. My Gender Dysphoria is the kind where my brain keeps reminding me that I have the wrong body. Yes I am better by living as a woman, however my brain is not satisfied.
So breast are important to me. Yes there is the mountain of social constructs that surround women’s breasts.
I just know that for me there isn’t much choice in this direction. I either satisfy my Gender Dysphoria or live in conflict .
