Plan of action
Okay. I think I’ve settled into a plan for how to proceed in the next year/foreseeable future.
Get a handle on my anxiety. It is time to stop being trapped by irrational fears and worries. I have a doctor’s appointment in two weeks to discuss this and start working something out (likely medication and maybe therapy, but one is more expensive than the other).
While I wait for anxiety to be better managed, acquire some gender appropriate clothes. The hope is that, given time to manage the anxiety better, I can start being able to leave the house dressed in ways that make me feel good about myself.
When anxiety has been managed in a better way or is reduced, start leaving house dress how I like.
During points 1-3 continue to slowly wear more make-up and other stuff while growing hair.
Decide on a new name and begin process to change it after year in this province is up.
If points 1-5 go well, revisit the notion of hormones.
This sounds like a good plan to me. I’m thinking about getting another part time job to pay for stuff.
