Just An Update

The only thing more uncomfortable than going to the doctors office, is going there with your mom while your wearing your binder…
The other day was the first time I’d been to my new doctors office and I had to have an EKG done. In order to do that I had to take my shirt off. Before this, I hadn’t informed my mom that I was wearing one. But the upside to this is, it got us talking about it again and she didn’t take it away.
For Christmas break I had family over. Having them over always makes me crazy because I just want to tell them I’m a boy. It’s one of those secrets that you don’t want to be a secret, but you just don’t know how to do it or you just don’t have the guts to.
One another note, I hate Minnesota winters. They’re too cold and dark and windy. The only part about them that I like is the first heavy snow and the fact that I can wear my binder and it’s not totally noticeable.

Happy 2013 everyone, I hope it’s a good one.

Hi everyone, I’m Alex.

A little bit about me that I think you should know is that I’m trigender / genderqueer, as well as bisexual. I go by male pronouns. Most of my friends and my teachers know, though my family still has no idea, aside from about four people. I’m a senior in high school in south Minneapolis.

I haven’t come out to my parents, and I’m a little nervous about trying. For the most part, this blog is to help me through the next year, in which I plan on coming out. It’s also to help me keep track of things like a journal.
