It's Official !

I don't know why it means so much to me, but on Saturday I received my new driving license as 'Ms Robin Moira White' complete with new photogragh and female driver number.  I stood holding it for a few seconds.

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!
