Those of you who know me are aware of some issues I’ve been going through, lots of different stress sources, difficulty dealing with all of it some of the time. I’ve started seeing a counselor, and yes she’s trained and experienced with gender issues. I got a really good solid vibe from our first meeting, and have scheduled weekly sessions through into the new year and beyond.
She seems really good, and managed to get lots of mileage out of few questions. She also asked if she could meet Bridgette at some point, and of course I said yes. Being trans is one of the big reasons I’m there anyways.
Leaving after my first session, it felt like we’d covered so much ground, but if course I realize we haven’t even scratched the surface yet. It did feel really good to get started though. It took a long time to get in to see her. There’s just so many people needing help, and few available to be the help. I feel better just knowing I have one more person whom I can talk to, even if only weekly. One more person who knows.
I actually saw two different people, because it was hard to get in anywhere, and I wanted to see if one or the other was going to be the right one, and after first visits, I think I know which I’ll pick, but my gp advised giving them 2-4 appointments to see how it goes. The other is only doing virtual meetings, and I’m just not sure that really gets the job done, you know?
Anyways, now that I’ve started, I’m really hoping to find more ways to cope, and deal with at least a couple of the issues that are plaguing me.
The support I’ve gotten here has been great, and I’m deeply grateful for all the kind words, pm’s, and texts. Thank you all very much.
