Hello, all you fine people! My name is Amy, and I am the user formerly known as "Erbo." See, in the years since I last made an appearance here, I have transitioned from male to female.

The story of how this came to pass is a lengthy one, but I have produced a small summary of events here, which was posted about two months before I made the actual legal transition. (It includes photos!)

My name is now legally "Amy Gale Bowersox," and I have a driver's license identifying me as such, and as female. I will soon have a passport that also identifies me that way. I have now been working for three weeks entirely as a woman, and people there address me as "Amy" as if I've always been there.

Thanks to Snaggy for changing my login name so I can show you my true self now! [Smile]

Congratulations!

Life's too short to waste it pretending to be someone you're not.

Congrats Amy! It's wonderful to hear from you again and thank you for telling us this great news! I'm very happy for you and proud of you, and you are an inspiration to all of us, in other words, you rock! [Big Grin] I saw your pictures are you look awesome! I hope I can be a good ally.

This calls for a party!

Hi AmySox!

Welcome back. Hang around a bit. Most of us just lurk around in corners like the old people at punk shows, but we still love the music.

Thanks all for the great re-welcome!

I am in the middle of my fourth week now back at work after the changeover. Basically, much the same as before, except now I spend half an hour or so getting dressed and made up each morning, and now I get to wear prettier clothes. [Smile] Today, for instance, I have on a white top with a floral lace front that I found on clearance at Walmart, and a long orange skirt I got from Target a couple of years ago.

I still wear my silicone breast forms that I've worn from the start, to give myself a proper appearance, but, underneath, the real ones are coming along nicely. They've got about another 18 months estimated before they reach full growth, though. Yay estrogen! [Applause]

And yesterday I had to go from the office to a wine-tasting party (a fundraiser), so I changed into one of my "party dresses" and adjusted my makeup in the ladies' room before I left. It worked out fine, since I tend to be the crazy-prepared sort. [Smile]

So yes, this is my life now!

- Amy
