I have been seeing a therapist for almost two years and a gender therapist for almost a year. She approved me for a letter in November, but I still had to get in to see a doctor.
I finally have an appointment for a doctor to start hormone therapy on February 21, 2012. It will actually be the one year anniversary of my coming out letter to everyone on Facebook.
I got a great gift today. My therapist gave me a copy of my approval letter for hormone therapy and continuance with the path to surgery. She faxed a copy of the letter to the doctor, but she gave me a copy in case they didn't get it.
I am so happy. I have an appointment and I have a copy of the letter which I can keep or make a copy of to have and to hold.
