Been a wee bit lazy with the blog for a couple of weeks. But that’s because things are generally going alright. I feel tangible progress and that’s not something I’m always able to measure.
Finished up with speech therapy for now and although far from perfect, I’m starting to grasp how to change my voice with less conscious effort and close to being able to do it at will.
And I’ve just had my second opinion in order to get to see the surgeon. Was actually offered another surprise cancellation and it’s saved me months of waiting. So it’s all good, I’m in the queue and early 2017 is soon enough.
The best and equally worst bit is that at around two and a half years, hormones seem to be kicking in properly. I can literally see physical change happening now. Which is also scary but exciting and probably what I always looked forward to most. Like the best sort of Christmas present.The moodswings aside.
The change itself has been fantastic though but there was another surprise gift attached. Relative anonymity. I still occasionally come to the attention of the small minded but mostly day to day, I rarely get noticed. Which is pretty awesome when I think about it.
So, all in I’m not in too bad a place as this year draws to a close. I won’t be sorry to let 2016 go at all. Parts of it have been grim but I’ve survived it at least. And 2017 should now offer surgery finally. Which will mean whole new challenges.I have plenty to look forward to either way. Back in a cheerily optimistic glass is half full mood. Because that’s just how 2017 needs to be.
