Aydan's Life

For the first time in months…

For the first time since the end of last year, I'm not in a really bad place mentally. For almost three weeks now, I haven't woken up in the morning and had to make the conscious decision not to take my own life. Life may not be perfect, but it's slowly heading towards something along… Continue reading For the first time in months…

Medical Nightmare

The recurring theme in healthcare when it comes to being transgender is either lack of knowledge or outright discrimination, both of which I have experienced at the hands of doctors sworn to first do no harm according to the Hippocratic oath traditionally taken by doctors. The most recent case of discrimination I've experienced has been… Continue reading Medical Nightmare

The Dirty Truth

Now once again I feel like everything that has started to settle down has been thrown into the fray once again, and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if we should stay in this area, or New York or move somewhere else. I’m at a loss. It’s being insinuated that my family and I ruined this person’s social life, and they can’t do anything and are now in a bad place. Just when I thought we were safe…

I have a new phone, and a new carrier.  After spending several days engaged with T-Mobile's customer support ( though I hardly think they qualify as support), several Twitter nudgings trying to get them to actually answer my messages, and a metric fuck ton of annoyance I thought we had reached some sort of resolution… Continue reading Resolution: Thanks for the Memories T-Mobile

The Clusterfuck that is T-Mobile

"Go Magenta."  This is one of the tags lines I heard from the T-Mobile crew in Richmond, VA a few years back at VA Pride. At the time my cellular carrier was Verizon Wireless, and while I wasn't really happy with their service, they had yet to screw over my bill and service to such… Continue reading The Clusterfuck that is T-Mobile
