Also, I should say that this week Lyn/Ezekiel did the following:
- Told sister some of the gender stuff going on. This sister also supported Lyn/Ezekiel’s decision to talk to parents.
- Told parents gender stuff, including that she/he doesn’t really know exactly what is up and that medical transition and living as a man are theoretical possibilities
- Had a therapist appointment and decided to do weekly appointments at least for a while.
Each and every one of these is crazy huge. The evening after the therapist visit I had a bratty fit when Lyn/Ezekiel wouldn’t discuss heteronormativity with me for longer than a half-hour and was sobbing before I realized that I was just finally feeling a whole bunch of feelings after holding my breath for the two weeks since the therapy appointment was made. Lyn/Ezekiel likes the therapist, which is awesome and makes me feel better that someone else is watching out for them.
