Where I am – April 2013

Posted on

sifanHere I am, just starting my first blog!  Let me say a little about where I am in this transition.  My next post will describe a bit more of who I am.

As of this post, I have more than completed the required 90 day WPATH requirement to begin hormone treatment.  I expect HRT (hormone replacement treatment) to start on May 22.  Another requirement is to live fully as a woman for 1 year before GRS (gender reassignment surgery).  For the last year I have been fully immersed as a woman at home, Dr. appointments and at the transsexual support group.  I plan to wait until the HRT has enough of an effect (about 6 months) before coming out full-time to the world.

All my friends and the people I work with know about this.  However, especially at work, this will give them a 6 month period of time to gradually get used to my transition.

About sifankahale

Aloha ! This is a difficult (very personal and scary) thing for me to share. I have seen and read many other accounts of people who have transitioned – those have helped me immensely. But we are all unique, and my journey does not seem to fit others. So, in hopes of helping others as well as documenting my journey – I’ve created this blog. I am a transsexual woman; my gender is female and my birth sex is male (this is the official medical definition and its in my medical record). This is not a choice, nor is it a lifestyle or even a preference. It took many years, with professional help, to find who I am and to finally merge all of my life’s descriptiveness, talents, sensitivities and general outlook on life into a deep understanding of self. As that phase progressed, it was my maleness that started to fall away, like layers of an onion. Rather than becoming a woman, I realized I am a woman. This is my diary of my journey through transition. With kindness and Aloha, Sifan
