It's a good day

I'm feel good for the first time in a long time....


Today is 3 years since I came out as *insert my name* 


Coming out as trans was the best thing I've done for myself. 3 years down the road and I'm so proud of myself. It's also been 14 months in T today. 


This man loves himself now. Yes I have a serious ED but it's not because I hate the man I've become





Also I'm walking (I did 10m today 😁)....68 days down after a significant suicide attempt that I was told I might not walk again and I'm on my feet (with a support frame but I'm doing it) 


Despite my mental illnesses it is possible to have good days and I need to remember that on the bad. 


Things change, nothing stays the same.
