    TW Dyshporia, mentions of needle shots, one swear #venting

    I really wish there’s a way to just take the flu shot at home. Or just any shot at home for that matter.

    Almost everytime I go to get it, I get misgendered. Because of it, I absolutely despise Walgreens because before they didn’t want to change my name or legal gender (even though I’m really nonbinary, have to wait three freaking years to get our mark even though the bill passed in 2018, what’s taking so long?!) in their system. Because of that, and the last time I went for the booster shot and when I was being called to take the shot, I called “Miss” ‘last name’ in front of everybody.

    My mom says that everything should be changed now, but honestly I don’t really even want to enter another Walgreens anymore. That’s how crap I’ve felt. Me and my mom are going this weekend (hopefully) to another clinic other than Walgreens.. and I still don’t feel good about this. Especially if we’re getting restaurant food to take home afterwards, I’ve often been grouped with her as “ladies”. Ugh. 😔

    This damn society..

    (Just in case - please don’t mention - or censor - the words c*v*d-19 (o, i), c*r*na (o, o), p*nd*mic (a, e), or q**rint*ne (ua, i) in the comments.)

    I got misgendered from behind | TW dysphoria, mentions of suicidal thoughts, self-harm, one swear #venting

    Sometimes I really hate being trans and nonbinary. I wish I was just born masculine.
    It’s not fun. It happened as soon as I came to the bus stop, too, and I immediately just went back home. Clearly all society sees is a girl. No matter what I freaking do. I have long hair, but I’m not a freaking girl.

    Why can’t this stupid society see that I’m not a girl? Every time I get misgendered now, thoughts of being off dead get into my head, oftentimes even having a plan right then and there. And I went back to self harm today, but I’ll try not to do it again.

    I hate this.

    So fuck it. I’m not going back outside. Not even to eat (which is why I would even be outside). Not even to pick up something from the door if someone’s standing there. Not if everyone is just going to misgender me as a girl like this, even if they usually don’t mean to hurt me. It still freaking hurts. This is why I can’t even just dress how I want to dress. I try to, but stuff like this often gets in the way, and this is why I sometimes avoid wearing skirts (which I guess didn’t even freaking matter today anyway).

    Oh, and just for clarity’s sake, I don’t identify as a human. It’s nothing pessimistic or degrading, but it’s more in a spiritual nonhuman way. So I ask to please not call me a human, thanks.

    I can’t even order food without the fear of being misgendered in person | TW dysphoria #venting

    It’s the only reason I always eat out to the same places that at least know me over and over again. Otherwise it’s just “okay ma’am” “yes, miss?” Or “okay ladies” when I’m with my mom and/or sister. It’s so annoying and invalidating!! I can’t even order food to here because I’m usually not in my androgynous clothes or binder, and I still feel very insecure if my chest is still obvious even with my binder. So that means that if I ever do, I would literally have to dress too masculine for my tastes just to go outside and pick my food up from the delivery individual. For like a 5-10 second period!! That makes no sense!!

    But I refuse to be seen as a woman who lives here. That’s not happening. No way. It’s either a man or nonbinary, and even though I’m really nonbinary transmasc, it just going to seem to work dressing too masculine for my tastes. Social dysphoria’s that bad. This state sucks. Well, society sucks in general.

    I’m just a mom who loves herTG adult child

    My son is TG and he is in crisis. He is 26 yrs old, graduated from College last December. He is a teacher with special Ed children. He loves deeply, would give someone the last dollar he had. He’s loveable, quirky, but he’s hurting. He won’t tell his dad or I what’s wrong. He’s been ill, uses edibles, and has 2 freeloaders living with him. I don’t know how to help him. My mom is in palliative care and when he tried to talk with her, she did not respond (has dementia). He has gender dysphoria and has passive suicidal thoughts. Currently, he has no SI. He knows I’m there for him , his dad is there for him. He has ADHD, depression, anxiety. I text him daily just about. What can I do to help him? I know there’s organizations out there. #Worriedmom

    Being misgendered | TW gender dysphoria

    Being misgendered by another non-binary individual or a binary individual who goes by different/no pronouns sucks the most, I feel.. apologies if this sounds rude or inconsiderate, but I thought especially we would know by now to not assume someone’s gender or pronouns…

    I hope this can be one place for me to actually be safe here | TW exclusionism, drama | #Anxiety #GenderDysphoria #sad

    I hate drama when it comes to real life or any kind of non-lighthearted arguments. I also despise exclusionists, especially those in the LGBTQ+ community. As someone who’s LGBTQ+ it’s so sad and irritating to see. Those who take fiction too seriously in a negative way, especially if someone uses it as a coping machine, get to me as well. I absolutely despise cringe culture and the word “cringe” itself (unless someone reclaims it). Death threats (to anyone, and I mean anyone) are also an absolute no (they’re such cruel phrases).

    Those are some of the reasons I stay away from most social media, including Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, even most LGBTQ+ wikis and servers, etc. I can never get around to being on those, not often anyway. I only post on Discord, but I’ve left many servers due to toxicity, one from a toxic user that has been spreading pretty unfair and toxic assumptions, and he wasn’t even a friend to me or any of us.

    Looking up information sucks, too. It suck seeing “he or she” or “both men and women” or “*insert trait* is when women have *blank*” when I’m nonbinary and hate being seen as a woman. It also sucks being erased when I’m in a polyamorous non-romantic relationship when all I see is monogamous (couple) based information, and polyamorous being mostly defined as romantic and/or sexual..

    Because of all of this, I often feel that this world doesn’t make sense. I see so many things wrong with it (especially with America and the internet, I have a love-hate thing with it). I hope that this place can understand me at least because sometimes I feel so done with this world.
    (Also apologies for the very long post, there’s usually so much on my mind)

    I had a TMS consult today. Will be starting it in August for OCD! And off label C-PTSD as those two disorders are very intertwined for me. I did it for OCD and bipolar depression last year with success. So here’s to hoping it helps again!!
