Despite Jez's claims I'm not upset about this thread. If anything it makes it easier to explain what's going on in my life right now.
So after coming out to my mother she went and did some "research" that lead her to bad info for gender identity disorder (what we used to classify trans people as having before research and changing cultural norms renamed it gender dysphoria). Basically she thinks it's caused by PTSD and has decided that I never got over my brother's death 15 years ago (mind you I've known I was trans, even if not by name, 18 years ago as of this year) or my deployments to Iraq.
Mix in her husband claiming in that I mislead the VA into giving me HRT, that I'm using a faulty self-diagnosis to avoid getting the actual care they think I need for my PTSD (which is something I already got sorted out a long time ago, plus I'd have to clear that up before HRT anyways for the VA to bless off on HRT) and that I don't need medication or psychologist/psychiatrist but Jesus to solve my issues. Oh and he has come out and said he'll never accept any information I provide that proves him wrong.
Needless to say I'm pretty much done with this. I can't keep living in a house with people who ignore reality so blatantly, decide what I'm thinking for me and just outright treat me like horse shit before pretending nothing happened the next day.
So I won't be on a lot this summer sadly, and all my hobby stuff is getting boxed for a while so I can be packed well in advance of when I can afford to move out, which I'm taking up a second job to help afford sooner rather than later.
I wish there could be a better way but right now I can't find one.
Thank you for all your understanding and I'll visit when I can.
