Yes I am at the stage where I would LOVE to go out and about as Jennifer. I have done it sometimes: taken walks, short trips to the grocery store, etc. I also know the more I do it the more chances that others I know will see me. There will come a time when everyone will know, I am hoping that happens after retirement. Unlike you it’s not so much the employer that is fine but it’s the people I need to work with at all times. Some will be good with it and I have confidentially told them and they have so far respected my wishes to let me disclose. There are others who are totally against trans and they are truly open about it. It’s a real balancing act.
Personally I love the changes I am seeing: breast growth, softening of the face, redistribution of fat. I feel I am in heaven, Transgender Heaven.
