Perhaps it is because this is the most 'official' recogfnition of my altered status so far. Or perhaps it is because it is what I use, quite regularly, to prove identity when collecting post from my local postal sorting office.
I know for others in transition, achieveing an altered birth certificate is important. I am not so certain that is significant for me. After all, I was born male, at least apparently, and the change to female is something happening in my 40's.
All I can say is that I am now very comfortable indeed with the altered me, and the quicker the remaining steps can be completed, the better. Almost without thinking about it, I note that it is now only 11 months to my 'final' surgery and I know that the months will click by faster and faster. Be ready, Dr Kunaporn!
