So umm well yes. So I've carefully held onto the piece of paper needing my most uptodate personal details. And feeling a need to be brave earlier today I filled it in before my one-to-one with my new name and title.

I was so scared about today that last night I woke up a nightmare where the beasts were even scarier than zombies. It's funny really, growing up my nightmares were all set within a large manor house and/or its grounds. ALL of them. And cropped up again on into adulthood. And since the zombie nightmares my nightmares are all set outside. I was once told that the house is representative of being trapped within my own mind. So I guess it's fitting that my nightmares have moved outdoors. Anyway, it was scary and I woke up in the worst panic I've woken up in in ages. I had to put my sarah-jane adventures audio book on to be able to get back to sleep. I also sent the day with my stress levels racking up higher and higher until I was near shaking. But the timing was right and I knew that I would feel better for doing it.

So I went into my one-to-one with my team leader. Chatted business stuff. If you really must know - I am awesome. And then I was asked if there was anything I wanted to talk about. I said about the gender identity disorder and changing my name and how I'd written that name on my sheet because well, I'd signed to say that I would give up the old name.

I'm not entirely certain that my teamleader understood what I was getting at, but I also spoke to ex-team leader today (who knows) and team leader said he'd find out how we make the changes needed in work. My only other one-to-one with him so far (due to only taking over a couple of months ago and him being away and them being cancelled over easter) I went in with a list of stuff I wanted him to do for me and he got it done within 24-48 hours so I know he's good on his word. Felt slightly anti-climatic but I got out and Work Pet checked how it went (because he'd had me gittering via email earlier in the day).

I'm kind of glad I didn't go in with a high expectation of this meeting. I think I should have had something more of an action plan to take to table, but considering everything else going on in my life right now I'm happy that they know and with the knowledge that I can move things along faster if I need to. I don't have to worry about that awkward conversation now. It's done. There's many more to come, but that one's done for now. And I'm off now for a bit so I'm pretty certain that by the time I return my team leader will have a hell of a load of questions for me. I need to send off for my copies (but can't find my paperwork for that discount) of my deedpoll so I can get my driving licence changed.

Part 3 is the driving licence.
