Wow I can't believe I did it again and went so long without updating on here. Well a lot has been going on since I last updated. To start it off I got laid off from my job the middle of June but on the plus side I decided since I had nothing holding me back I started living as myself full time. I also applied to get my name legally changed which is still in process due to my background check getting delayed by what I was told was a technical problem. I also got letters from my therapist and physician so I can get my gender marker changed on all my ID's which I plan to get done as soon as my name change goes thru. In the meantime I feel like a kid who's counting down the day's till Christmas.
There has been some down parts to my transition which is my wife and I have decided to separate but we are still living together so we can be with our kids and also we just can't afford to live apart. She is still very supportive and has been helping me as much as she can with things. My two 5yr old son's have been awesome about it and have even told me that they like me better as Katie.
Right now the only thing in my future that i'm worried about is trying to find another job. I have been in I.T. for 16yrs and I am worried that since I have gone full time how it will affect my job prospects and also how it affect my previous job experience. All the people i've talked to have no clue since they transitioned while still working and stayed with their company after they went full time. Has anyone else been thru that experience? I am all open to any advice that anyone has.
