Transgender: Becoming Me

Hello! My name is Jeremiah. I'm a gay FTM. I am a special education teacher in the bay area. I began therapy about three or four months ago. Biggest news is that my therapist is writing me a letter to begin hormone therapy. So, I will be starting my T-shots shortly. I have begun my "coming out" with my close friends and I'm beginning to "come out" to my family. I have an incredibly supportive boyfriend, who has been really amazing through all of this. The most difficult one for me will be my mom. I live really far from my family so I won't be able to do it in person. That's okay with me to a point.

I have waited years of my life to transition. I was always been so focused on the imp act that it would have on those around me. This year, I decided to finally focus in on what I needed and began therapy.

I am transitioning out of my job and job hunting. Due to the nature of my work, I felt that it would be better if I moved on. So...I'm moving to be closer to my boy who lives in southern California and job hunting. Wahoo! Dude, my pit, and I will be moving in a matter of a few months. I'm so excited and stressed out. All at the same time.

If you would like to know more...hit me up! Let's talk.

It is brave of you to take the steps to become the person you really are. I hope all is going well and that you will gain all your family support. It may take time for them to adjust but a pray that they do and accept the new you........ Goodluck..

How wonderful for you to be becoming who you are meant to be. I married a ftm and want you to know that the first few months will be the hardest, the hormones take some getting used to, but it will even out. Make sure you have good and genuine people around you to support you and you will be fine. Blessed Be
