Trans 30 Day Challenge - Day 11

Day 11 -  How do you manage dysphoria?

When I had dysphoria, I usually managed it by writing about it or talking about it. Many a poem was written back before transition as I struggled with the inner turmoil within myself. When I came out, transition was all I wanted to talk about and now that I look back on that, it was helpful in processing any dysphoria I experienced.

Nowadays, I don't find myself with a lot of dysphoria. I think the only real piece of envy left when it comes to other women is long hair and mine will most likely be where I want it to be in the next two years. So I suppose the whole process works. =)

What hair length are your striving for?
In some of your earliest vlogs, I believe your wore a wig that had bangs. Looked cute. Will you ever go back to bangs?

@Sarah - Mid-back or so. It's currently past my shoulders now.

So glad I dont have to wear the wig anymore but no I probably wont go back to bangs for a while. I did side bangs for a few months recently and I just hate the grow out period.

As someone with curly hair, I feel your pain. :c) I also want mid-back length, but curly/wavy hair grows out before it grows down. God help me this summer when the humidity arrives! lol Yet another reason I look forward to returning to Seattle - dry summers!

P.S. You look really cute with bangs. Just one gal's opinion. :c)
