Hi all, I’m Elliot, I guess recently I had a revelation in therapy that I wasn’t happy with certain things in my life. This lead to me to where I am now. Struggling with my gender identity. I think and I don’t know how to word this I am trans … I feel so at home with my new name and thinking of the future and how things could feel so much safer and comfortable for me. One positive I’ll share here is that with my new name and hiding certain body parts I feel so at home… I no longer feel overwhelmingly anxious when i go out I almost feel dare i say it, confident.
The negatives I guess is my family wouldn’t accept it with conservative views and that’s really upsetting to have to hide this ‘new me’ that I love.
My mother is coming to visit next week and I guess i have to put Elliot in a box and lock them away somewhere. I just don’t know how I’ll cope.
I hope it is okay that I’ve shared and that you are all well..
If i have shared in the wrong place please let me know!
Thank you all for letting me talk.
