That was really positive!



So, fears for nothing, my phone meeting with my new doctor was amazingly positive!

Things started off just right when she asked me my preferred name and pronouns. Great way to set the stage for the remainder of the conversation which, to be fair, was the usual dive into medical history (or lack thereof) and basic general habit questions. Happy, still, to be able to say I quite smoking 9 years ago.

What was really great, from my perspective, is that this clinic does it all with transgender clients: HRT, assessments, help with name and gender changes, GRC referrals, and more. It's really comprehensive and she was really good at describing how they work. It wasn't a long session, not even quite a half hour. but it was informative.

So, next steps... blood work. Feels like I am actually getting closer.

Not Controversial: He's a Bigot

Incredibly disappointing, and deeply frightening, to see that the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives have allowed a bigot to testify as an expert on a subject that he has no expertise on.

Two months!

Time flies! I wouldn't necessarily say "when you are having fun" with that, but it's actually been pretty good, especially as the weather is getting better!

Life has been busy lately and part of me is wondering how it got there!
