I was always pretty clear in my own mind what this blog was. It has been a place for me to articulate the issues of my gender transition as I faced them. I would find my mind racing, churning, as I struggled to come to terms with the challenges of being transgender and transitioning, and writing about those issues always made it better. It helped me get things clear in my head, and by writing about them for friends and the public, it forced me to think harder and (I believe) more clearly.
This blog has in a very real way been my most important therapy, and if you track the frequency of my posts you'll see a correlation with some of the key points in my transition. You will see sort of a crescendo right around transition in late 2012, with a gradual decrease in posts since then.
And if you track the frequency of my posts you will note that they have gotten very infrequent. I suggested in my last post that this was a good thing, that it was because in many ways my life was becoming unremarkable. That was partly false modesty on my part - as I look at my life I'm amazed at where I've been and what I've done - the past year has seen me travel around the world, change jobs, speak publicly about my transition, get involved in trans causes, and more.
But this blog has been a way to deal with the process of transition, and that process is drawing to a close. Thanks to a month-long visit to Dr. Suporn in Thailand, I'm pretty sure the transition related surgeries are done, and even my birth certificate should soon be amended.
