The pandemic turned out to be strangely helpful. When something upends your life in a way you had not expected it forces you to reflect on where you've been and where you need to go. I would almost describe it as a watershed moment. Working from home has offered me the chance to rid myself of the schizophrenic back and forth between gender presentations and hence I have melded myself even more into one entity. The fact that I will be heading into partial retirement in this manner has been a panacea for my psyche and by this time next year my life will be changed yet again.
The thought process which took place in the isolation permitted me to coalesce ideas into an action plan and made me realize how strong my identity as a trans person truly is. As hard as this pandemic has been for so many, it turned our to be just what the doctor ordered for me.
