It's my hope to post entries here about my life and experiences as a trans-woman, and everyday life in general. This is my way of making my voice be heard, and bringing attention to the issues that transgender people face every day.

I finally managed to get my estrogen yesterday, which helps put my mind at ease a bit. I talked to someone at the clinic today about the cardiogram. Luckily I can just wait until my next appointment and they can do it then since it's not needed right away. I did finally get my grandparents to agree to take me to the vocational rehab place if I set up an appointment. I plan on calling and trying to do that on Monday. I also found out from my grandparents that no one else in the extended family knows about me. That was a bit of a disappointment, but at least I know now. With any luck I may find a job in the next month or two. I have to make at least part of the money I need to get an orchiectomy before I turn 23. I lose my insurance then, which means I lose my therapy appointments. So, I need to get it done in less than a year so I can get a letter from my therapist for it before I have to stop going. If I can at least get that surgery I can take my time saving up for SRS. I know it's going to be a while before I can get it, I just want to save myself some money on meds and make electrolysis easier. I have to get my transition moving forward again, so this time I've really got to make things count.
My name is Sage, and I'm just a young trans-woman trying to get by in this world. I started this blog to write about my life and what goes on in it, and to talk about whatever I feel applies to it at times. Keep reading if it interests you. I plan to update as frequently as possible. If you send me friend requests on any of my sites, please send a message and mention my blog in it so I don't accidentally ignore it.
Donate to my transition fund if you're feeling generous.
