Every time I take Izzy to the after hours doctor (we’re here now) I have to write her birth name and a note saying “please use the name Izzy and female pronouns”. My palms get damp and I feel sick.
It’s always ok, but each time I feel so nervous and I think how horrible it must be for older transgender people in these situations.
I haven’t figured out a way to get around the name used on her prescriptions, every time the pharmacist calls out her birth name. So far Izzy’s never heard this, and by the time she’s old enough to collect her own prescriptions her name, and I hope, gender will be legally changed but you’d think the doctor could sort something out – all it would take is a note added to the prescription.
