my options

- become part-time student, work, get line of credit, move out

- live at ‘home’, suffer for two years, graduate with bachelor’s degree, get a job, move out

- move in with dad, still experience birth names/pronouns but maybe have more progress?

- quit university, become a barber, work, move out

- yell at mother, become (more) depressed, tell her “if you don’t want a son, you’ll have a dead daughter”

my mother is going to freak when she finds out I am planning my top surgery. what to do, what to do.

not sure if i can ask my parents again to use my chosen name. it hurts so much to hear no.

opinions, thoughts, experiences, love, suggestions welcome.
