Still working through all the life stuff so transition still on hold.
BUT it's not feeling like a deperate situation yet. Still getting waves of dysphoria but it seems much more body based and less social based. No idea how long that will last but it's ok at the moment. Things are only on hold until I have at least one out of the two house moves sorted. And then I can think about going clothes shopping and make myself some more binders and stuff before transitioning at work. I kind of feel on the cusp here, and I'm happy enough here for the time being. Still no word from the clinic. No idea how long to leave it before I chase up there, but I'm going to have to try and change my address with them again. When I move from my village I'm going to have to pay for my post to be forwarded to me JUST BECAUSE OF THE CLINIC.

It made me feel better chatting with WP and filling him in on how it went telling our manager this afternoon. And it's nice to mentally think every time a customer double checks my name (still female name at work) "nah it's not that name, but ok".

I'm still wondering about the wisdom of trying to present as male over the phone before hormones.

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.

this is how panicked I was about this )

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.

I've had randy dreams about two of my male collegues in the past week. Very bizarre and very strange.
