G'day All

Um. How the heck do I explain all this? Some of you already know it, but

many don't.

Towards the end of BSG, it started hitting me where I live.


Because on the 4th of May, something weird and still unexplained started

happening to me.

The first symptom was a full-blown GD (Gender Dysphoria) crisis. That 
was odd enough, but it happens to a lot of people. They end up changing 
their sex after years of hormone treatment usually capped by surgery.

Then, at about the same time, maybe a little earlier, maybe a little 
later, the body started changing shape without treatment. Radically. And

very very quickly. As I said, it's still unexplained, hormones can't 
work that fast, and I'm not getting any therapy whatsoever anyway.

Please just go read 2 articles (with pictures) on my blog.

I was planning on making the transition in January 2006, after giving 
the planned HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) time to work, and some 
necessary facial surgery in November. But my employer had a chat with me

today, and confirmed that even with my best efforts, I'm not looking 
particularly male any more, at least, to people who have known me. Not 
that I look particularly female either, just more F than M now. She 
suggested I transition whenever I felt comfy with it.  All of my 
colleagues, from the CEO down, have been immensely supportive,	as has 
my partner, Carmel.

So this is a warning to all my friends, gamers etc that my name will 
change to Zoe Brain some time in August or September, depending on 
bureaucracy etc
