Not Many

The only people that are providing emotional support while I transition are the woman that I am "dating", my brother, my best friend, and my niece and nephew. My sister kind of tries, but seems to forget a lot (no matter how many times I remind her). My mother isn't even trying to accept me.
I thought that when my voice changed and I started growing facial hair it would help them to remember. My sister can't seem to remember no matter what changes occur or what I do. Her children accept and support me (they only need to be reminded sometimes), but she can't seem to.
My mother will grudgingly and grouchily address me as he when I remind her (which is every time). Then this is the same woman that when I went to the court to change my name she told me that this was my last chance to change my mind and not mess up my life. When I started HRT (hormone replacement therapy) she told me that she was afraid that I was messing up my life because I was just confused. I don't have much to do with her any more.
My brother and the woman that I am "dating" are the only people that have accepted me wholeheartedly from the start. My best friend has just started referring to and addressing me correctly. I have known him for almost ten years and the first nine of them he knew me as a woman (I understand that it takes time).
I guess I can't complain. At least I have a few people that accept and support me, some people have none. That's one of the reasons why I am here for anyone that needs support and to talk, so that they know that they are not alone.
