I seem to have another posting phase, I wonder how long thiso ne will last:
I am thinking if I shuold tell my mom about my desire to continue consulting with medical staff about a possible breast operation. I don't see my mom very often, she's oversees for long periods of time and ocmmunication is difficult. Now she'll be coming to visit me and extended family in Germany for about 2 weeks.
I don't want to ruin her holiday by bringing up trans/transition issues, but I feel I must tell her, because I have spoken to her about a lot of things already, and she seems to be ok with that (Neutrois, name change...)...but I'm afraid I will be going too far with this, as it involves money, time, there's more fear involved, it would be a big step towards feeling better about myself. . . I just don't want to add to her worries, but I also don't want to act behind her back and keep things from her.
I have a feeling I will talk to her, though I'm not sure how to start the conversation...maybe she will somehow ask me about it, cause I have mentioned dysphoria before.
Sorry if someone is reading this and wonders what I'm trying to say...it's pretty much just a rant about me being scared to offend my mom on her well-deserved holiday and being the spoiled, dysfunctional only girl in the family (I play this role really well)...
Has anyone else recently told their parents about the desire to have an operation, how does one ease them into such a topic?
