Lexi here. Today I got some of the best news of my young trans life!
I GOT CERTIFIED FOR HORMONES!! By my therapist. So that means as of right now that I can go to my primary care provider, talk to him about what hormones do, get my body tested to see if there are any red flags as far as what the cons will be when starting/continuing hormones and how they will affect me overall!!
Something all you trans folks and supporters should know about out there is the "Harry Benjamin Transgender Standards of Care" this is a resource I used to educate myself a little more about transitioning and a really helpful resource is the transsexual road map. http://www.tsroadmap.com/reality/wpath-standards.html
Another valuable resource for coming out as transgender is PFLAG, Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. http://community.pflag.org/Page.aspx?pid=194&srcid=-2
Best of luck Ya’ll!!
