"I've been on hormones for 13 months now. Recently, my day-to-day life has become 'easier', because now I'm happy with the way I look. People don't 'notice' that I used to be different as much anymore. I can start a conversation with someone new without that person scrutinizing me for a minute trying to figure me out".
"I see a lot of friends transitioning now, because we can. You can be successful, happy AND trans. However, the first phase of my transition was a dark one. I'm still very introverted and people-shy because of that. The people who used to bully me...
... thought I was strange and broke my jaw, are suddenly starting to like me because I'm doing really well at the moment career-wise. But I'm still that same person with the same DNA. This contrast caused me to build a little wall around me whilst I'm actually super kind, soft and pastel from the inside".

"When I just started my hormone cycle at the VUMC clinic the 'It Gets Better' campaign was trending. I always thought it was bullshit; established names and people who have it all that will tell you that everything is going to be OK. But it is true... it does get better, and better and better".
