Well… now what?

Three of my closest friends know about my gender dysphoria now. All three of them I told through text. It’s not much, but I was able to tell the last two while sober, so that’s a win I guess. I told them that nothing was going to change yet and I’m not sure what it means, but that I needed to have people in my corner for when it gets shit.

Well… now what?

What do I do now?

I’m stuck again.

How do you know when it’s right for things to start changing?

I need to go to therapy, I know that. Not just for the gender stuff but for my mental health in general. I have an appointment with my GP next week so I just need to pluck up the courage to start a conversation about it and get that ball rolling. Once I am hopefully in LGBT+ friendly therapy, I can start to figure out what I want.
