A few weeks ago I made a thread about my discovery that I am transgender. Today was my first day starting HRT, and I was kind of forced to come out to my mother. She took it very well.
edit: here's a link to the original thread
While I was waiting at the doctors office, my friend (who I came out to a few days ago and has been very supportive) texted me that it was national coming out day. Funny coincidence.
The reason I was forced to come out to my mom is because my piece of shit car broke down at the informed consent clinic, and I had to call her to come help me, which required me to explain what I was doing downtown. She said she loved me no matter what, and was actually relieved because she was worried at first that my problem was drug-related. She said she was happy to have another daughter!
I'm happy I can finally start being my real self and I just wanted to share my experience. Thank you for reading.
It's honestly amazing that in about a month, you went from not even realizing you were trans, to starting HRT. And what your mother said made me really smile - this is truly a heartwarming post :)
Once I realized I was a girl I didn't want to waste any more time having to pretend to be a guy! It was like finding out a childhood fantasy of mine suddenly became possible, so I just kinda went and did it. Now all I have to do is wait for the slowest magical girl transformation ever to be complete. Thank you for the support! I'm glad my story made you smile!
Well congratulations on everything! That confidence is really admirable too
Congratulations! It's always nice to hear that someone wasn't cast out or disowned outright just for making the choice to be themselves. I'm glad you found yourself, was able to tell your mom and she was more than accepting of you. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Thank you for sending us the positivity from your treasure of an experience! You have a cool mom and she's now blessed with (another) cool daughter :D
I’m so glad she’s being supportive and so happy you figured this out for yourself :) Best of luck!
That's so sweet of her, you're very lucky. I hope your luck holds and you'll be happy being your real self from here on out.
