mormoons asked: hi !! i saw your message about young trans* kids deciding on the surgery, and i just wanted to say thank you. im still pretty young and even though surgery would be years away, i still stress about it everyday. but whenever I bring up my worries to my friends they treat it as if its just a simple procedure that you can choose easily. but im stressing over the future of this, and your message really comforted me. thank you c: oh god i must sound crazy right now oh gosh AHHH
Oh no problem! Glad to help. Surgery is a big deal and it’s completely normal to stress out about it, even if it is years away. For the first few months after I realized I was trans I was super worried and asked myself everyday “Do I really want to do hormones? Do I really want surgery? Am I really trans” and it was quite nerve-wracking!! But it’s because I asked myself those things and dealt with the anxiety that I’m more sure of my transition today. Believe me you’re not alone if you’re stressing out over your identity. It’s healthy to be like that early on in the process!
