Was it the hormones? The poor sleep? The stress ? Maybe burnout at work?
I threw in the towel this week. I decided I could what if the question to death but there is only one way to know what employers can do to you… make an appointment and drop a couple of hundred dollars and sit down with a lawyer.
Oh I tried all the other options first, and most places won’t say a word unless problems have already occurred. So once I’m fired they’ll tell me what I should have to have a hope of getting some justice? Seems too late.
I found a lawyer who was considered friendly by the local community, and though he no longer practices employment law, he was very familiar with the ins and outs and even helped write legislation regarding equality for LGBT+ people. I knew this, and when I contacted them, I explained what I was looking for.
well, today was the first time I actually had trouble saying the words, “I’m a transgender woman” I don’t know why. Emotionally I’ve been on a rollercoaster, so it might have been that. Fear, fear of hearing that I’m screwed no matter what I do was certainly there. I’m sleeping 4-5 hours a night if I’m lucky. A lot going on, so sleep is not my friend right now. And with what’s going on at work, I’m really burned out. So maybe a little column A or some column B maybe both.
the good news is that I’m not totally screwed. In fact, I’m in a better and safer position that I thought I was, and as far as my religious corporation having exemption… turns out I found policies that can be used if necessary to defend me… the policies waiving their religious exemption, or their right to fire me because I go against their beliefs,
I can now have some serious conversations about coming out full time. Which is priceless.
