I'm very self conscious.

But I'm trying to learn to introduce myself as I want to be known.

There's that terrible moment when I realize if I say my real name, the one I've chosen, that people will realize I'm not some chick with short hair.

I've been working on it.

Hi, my name is Fletcher. And yes, I'm a man.

It's terrifying.


(Ftm transitioning, for clarity)

Where you on cm as a woman, and now you are a man? Who are you introducing yourself too, strangers? Or people who once knew you as a woman, but now you're a man?

I bet as time goes by it'll be easier. Hold your head high and just keep going on.

But that's ok. it's natural and normal in the transition process to feel that way. Talking about it, is the only way to overcome it.

Strangers. We recently moved to a new area, so I'm taking the opportunity to start with a clean slate.
