30: Aaaaaaah!~ Going back to work after coming out

It's my first day back to the office after outing myself, and I'm understandably a mite apprehensive.

I've been here almost 45 minutes, and thankfully it's usually very peaceful and calm in the mornings. At least until the management team starts arriving, that is. Then things pick up less-than-subtly.

I did my best to dress nicely, femininely, and modestly. I have a "Hello, my name is" sticker on my dress shirt with my preferred name written in with pink highlighter. I'm even in a pretty darn good mood, all things considered.

I think I'm going to have to pee before long, though. Sheer terror...

Breathe, Clover. Breaaaaaathe...
