alignment update: 416 days on T, 177 days post op
during my teen years I tried my hardest to find a way to be who I am and identify with the body I was born into, but this never felt comfortable. After years of discomfort and thinking, I eventually made the decision to start a low dose of testosterone and pursue top surgery, which is often a surgery people only associate with transgender men. Some people who identify as nonbinary can also suffer gender dysphoria that justifies medically necessary surgery. It's been nearly 6 months since surgery and my body and inner sense of self have never felt more aligned. It is also important to recognize that I did not suddenly become nonbinary after surgery. I may not have been able to name it, but I have felt this way ever since I can remember.
