hand-holding my GP through the endless confusions about them not knowing what has to happen with regards to me requesting a new NHS number.

Me: "id like to request a new number so i can have my records updated with my correct name and gender"

"ok what number do you have?"

Me: *gives my number*.

"yep thats the one we have on our system"

Me: Right so i'd like to request a new one.

"okay! so what is your new number?"

Me: I.. no i mean i need to request you get a new number from PCSE.

"Ah alright, well if you can submit that form with PCSE and let us know"

Me: No, i mean it states you have to request it. There is no form for me.

"Can you call back in the evening?"

*calls back 3 hours later*

"Oh i'm sorry, our service manager has gone home for the day, you would have needed to have called when she was here earlier during the day."

@mxsiege Bureaucracying while trans is an extreme sport.

@LunaDragofelis @mxsiege FWIW, for me, it’s all been worth it and then some. And it’s gotten easier: I was able to update my birth certificate’s sex marker with nothing more than an affidavit asserting that I’m trans. Doesn’t mean I’m not upset that it’s still far harder than it has to be.

@drifa @mxsiege well 🤔 this makes me wanna get gay married while trans and have my daughter's birth cert changed to my new name and have me listed as another mom :thinkhappy:

@drifa @mxsiege … thereby causing the collapse of the German, Austrian, Irish and Bosnian governments.

@meena @mxsiege Let me know if it works, there’s some governments I’d like to see collapse.
