Who Am I?
Who am I?
I’m Tracy, 25, and female to male transgender (ftm). I’m at the beginning of my transition, still living as a female, pre-surgery (scheduled for November 2011), and just started taking testosterone as of September 2011. You can read about my decision to transition in my first post. I grew up in New Jersey and got a degree in Psychology at a large state school in the northeast in 2009. Recently, this past spring I got my a master’s degree in Higher Education at a large state school in the southwest, where I currently work full-time.
I live with my partner, Alex (also ftm) and our four cats: Tigey, Peanut, Butter, and Andfluf Onwheat. Get it? (Peanut, Butter, Andfulf Onwheat. You can roll your eyes now.) I think I’m you’re pretty average guy…I like to watch TV, play videogames, sleep, read, do crossword puzzles, take pictures that I think are cooler than they probably really are, cut coupons, etc. The usual stuff.
A part of my reason for doing this blog (besides wanting to document my transition, which I talk about in my first post) is to be able share my story with others who may be going through the same journey as I am or who just want to learn more about this process. I know that as I’ve begun to consider the real ramifications of my transition, and the changes I’m going to have to make (using the men’s bathroom, for instance), so many questions have sprung up and I wasn’t really sure where to go or who to turn to for answers. There seems to be so much information out there that it’s really just overwhelming, and I would have loved to follow some blogs or people on Facebook who were documenting their transition. I plan to document as much as I can every step of the way. While I may not write about everything in detail in a post, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to or won’t talk about it…so feel free to shoot me an email!
