How to ease gender dysphoria

This is a loooooong overdue post, but here goes…

1. Listen to the goddamned music honest to God, listening to your favourite songs will put you in a good mood (no depressing music though, just happy stuffs that make you wanna dance! XD)

2. Cut yo hair - I bet you’re thinking wtf Matt, cutting my hair? Yes person whose name I do not know, cut your hair (unless you are mtf which go ahead to numero tres). I did this today actually and for about 3 hours I felt happy with myself, until I saw a whole heap of transphobic comments on youtube, which brings me on to my next one…

3. Turn off your devices Yup! I mean it, no internet can be good sometimes, so get yo ass off Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine or whatever and go read a book or something

4. Pick up your favourite book and read it - don’t just pick it up that’s just strange. An example of one I’m reading at the minute is Connor Franta’s A Work In Progress, such inspire.

5. Or watch a movie (if you don’t like reading or just like watching movies) Go watch Big Hero 6 and dream about being Hiro or Male Technician 1 & 2 getting it on.

6. Sleep Hard to do if you’re busy or at school but sleeping on things definitely makes it seem better.

7. Clothes! Wear your binder or a loose t-shirt/jumper or a pretty dress and walk around your house like you own this place, because chances are you do, or your parents do… 

8. Video games what better way to let off frustration and steam than battling a boss on Zelda or trying to beat your amazing friend on Mario Kart eh?

9. Play a musical instrument doesn’t matter if you’re good, bad or indifferent go have a strum on your guitar, toot on your trumpet or bash on your drums

10. Write a story, fanfic, poem, post on tumblr, your feelings, whatever. Or if you can’t write then draw or paint or really anything creative. You can even talk to your dog, cat, mouse, goldfish, lion, llama, dinosaur

That took a while to write! XD I hope it helps though and remember to block out the haters and just be who you are and want to be.

Letter for Travelling with Testosterone and Needles Template

Today I got a letter from my endocrinologist so I can travel with testosterone and needles in the future. If anyone is looking for a similar letter and there doctor is unsure of what to say here is what this one contains: 

To Whom it May Concern, 

RE: William [last name] 
DOB: April 11th 1994 

This is to certify that Will has an endocrine (hormones) condition. He must therefore carry medication, needles and/or syringes in his possession at all times while travelling for the administration of his medication. If you have any questions about the validity of this medication, please do not hesitate to contact our clinic. 

Thank you for your attention 

It’s a simple letter but will do a lot of good when travelling across country borders. 

Hey check out my story that i submitted to the series of editorials being compiled by the NY Times about trans people in the world today. This is kinda one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of… anyone can submit, so feel free to check out the stories and share your own!
