Seeking out Euphoria
Over time, things are changing.
Waiting rooms of rough cast walls and silence.
Appointment cards, letters and medication become souvenirs, and milestones.
Reduced to body parts and medical terms.
Being placed on lists, alone with unanswered questions.
Counting down the days, hoping for a phone call or a letter until all hope is lost.
Trapped in a life of liminality.
Using the static time to learn to connect with a body that I have always lived in, but do not recognise as my own.
Longing for the moment that I do not fear my reflection and can look at my frame
without the urge to cover a section that resembles the body that was never mine.
Seeking a future where I can escape the beckoning darkness and find comfort in the light.
Growing and transitioning to live as my authentic self.
Seeking out Euphoria follows my Gender Transition from Female to Male, looking closely at the process of Transitioning and the emotions
experienced throughout the journey.
