So I'm sorry its been a while, though I haven't forgotten about you, Oasis.
First, let me say this. And I'm not supposed to say this, but I'm anxious about one of my relatives, whose name shall remain unsaid. I don't know what to think about what's going on. But she was in the ER earlier and now she's been admitted to the hospital. And maybe you'll know her, so I won't say too much or else you'll figure out how to connect the dots and I don't want that happening. Anyway, she was hospitalized because her heart was beating really fast, apparently. That's just about all I know. So I have no way of assessing the severity or anything of the sort.
Uni is going well. Third week of classes just ended. The classes are pretty good for the most part I guess. I'm having a lot of trouble with the outside the class stuff. And by that, I mean that my health is not so good and it's really starting to get to me. I'm still seeing my therapist once a week and am seeing my disability coach once a week, too. So that's helpful. My doctor, I see her every 3 months. But she doesn't listen to me. Because apparently I "haven't gotten bad enough yet" for her to change the way in which she tries to treat me. It's annoying.
I submitted five poems for submission the other day, hopefully that goes well!! Sounds as though I won't find out for a bit, however. Maybe submitting some other poems for submission elsewhere, but haven't decided for sure.
Transition-stuff is going well, and people have been very considerate, and even so much as asking me what pronouns I'd prefer they use for me. All of my profs are calling me by the right name, thank goodness, except yesterday, a prof emailed me and even though he's called me Eli and I signed my email with the name Eli, he addressed the email to my girl name which is starting to seem more and more foreign by the day I think.
Everyone in my Poetry class knows I'm trans*. I haven't officially come out in any of my other classes yet, but in one class, we've been in groups for group presentations and so last group I was in, I told all of them. Then, I'll meet with my new group this Sunday, and at that point I'll come out to them. Because I need people to use the right pronouns for me (which are MALE). I have an urge to apologize for making things complicated for others because I know I don't look like your ordinary guy, but you know what? It is perfectly legit and I have every right to tell people how to treat me right. Eli is my name and I go by male pronouns. It's not up for debate, yknow. It is what it is.
Was going to write more, but can't remember what, specifically at the moment.
Questions/comments/suggestions, etc...feel free to write below or inbox me :)
