      I have no words. 😞 I can only offer prayers for your peace. 
    • Jani
      Is it worth it?  I've got a ton of money invested in myself and I think I received a good value.  As to the grief, the hard part passes and you move forward.  I can't say I've lost anyone.  I will say I've met some amazing people though.  Going with the flow is an option, albeit painful at times.  The choice is ours to make.  
    • Lyla
      I knew I could transition when Christine Jorgensen was news.  I just never felt strongly about it and there was always the internal question of if i may.  Over the years I didn't learn how to fit in but how to play a role.  I've been playing that role for so long I've grown into the part.  Is it worth all the time and money and grief to leave that role behind?  It's so much easier to just go with the flow.
    • BreM
      It is going to like my new job.New boss,she is glad I work with the transgender and crossdresser community very well including the genetic women
    • Jani
      Ahhh, life is a mystery isn't it?   Until I realized I could!  As to hobbies and such I can be like that.  If you tried to put all these thoughts aside, could you?  Quite possibly not, at least at this point.  The question really is how far do you need to go to feel happy?   Answer that and you'll be golden.   Jani

      I want to apologise to @Rosalina101011 and EVERYONE on this site for not reading her posting and misgendered her. I am absolutely ashamed and embarrassed. She is a very beautiful woman and I will never be anywhere near as beautiful. How she can be misgendered is totally beyond me (unless like me you misread the post which I did as I was being interrupted at the time I read the post.  Believe me Rosalina that I meant to?assure you not make fun and I pray I haven't done any more damage. I have suffered with GD my entire life of 68 years and I never want to make it worse. I know how it feels. I am not even to a point where I might even not get clocked and I can't imagine your suffering. Please please please accept my apology.  
    • Lyla
      I'm beginning to feel like I'm trying to solve a mystery.  Looking for clues in my memory.  Looking up information to try to put those clues together.  Possibly even following false leads or red herrings. I am not someone who has always felt that I was misgendered.  I have never felt that I was really female.  I have never felt that I had to transition.  This questioning is something new in my life that I'm unsure is real.  I can look back and see clues pointing towards being transgender but is that enough. The way I've always handled new interests such as hobbies and skill was to find as much information as I could about it, then find other peoples writing about it.  Basically do a lot of research until I felt I had a good handle on what I was getting into.  Then I would go at it whole hog jumping in feet first.  Usually after being involved in whatever the interest was for three years or so I would lose interest and move on to something else. Is that what I'm doing here?  Am I just obsessing about something that interests me?  If I make a decision will I change my mind a few years down the road? Lyla

    • BreM
      My life as Bre was not easy at first,I grew up struggling with non accepting parents in my life growing up with two younger sisters.My bio parents wanted me to be the big brother also being rough and tough.This wasn't me at all,at age 10 I started to like the feminine clothing and shoes and my bio parents didn't like that at all.Most of the times I was caught trying on mom's shoes,they would scold me badly.It included trying on my younger sisters dress.I was hurting inside and two ex family friends of theirs,a couple brought me in including my sisters.My bio parents gave up on me.These ex family friends of theirs,said I could go through her closet and try things on which I did.First was her heels and loved it.I was happy thing were getting better.As I got older,the crossdressing was part time at first and knew I had to make a choice later in my life.It was when I was 20,knew I had to make a decision go fulltime as Bre or stay part time as Bre.A talk with my real parents happened,said the ball was in my court with me making the decision with their support.Finally it was going fulltime as Bre.Finally one day brought a few boxes over and dumped my male clothes into them getting  rid of them.It was the happiest day in my life seeing I was going to have a much happier life.Still is and no regrets what I did to this day.
    • Jani
      Good for you!  It can be scary but we need to move forward and its rarely as bad as we imagine.  I hope your journey is a smooth one.   Jani
    • CallMeKeira
      @BreM That's good news.
    • Jackie C.
      Congratulations!   Having supportive people in your life is: The. Best. I'm glad the people who are closest to you love you for you.   Hugs!
    • Lyla
      Within the last several weeks I've told my life partner and told my mother that I might be trans.  Both times were scary but for each time the result was not what I expected and was very supporting.  I see myself as being very lucky.  I hope the results will be the same when I finally figure things out.  
    • Aurora
      Why was I born like this.  Why couldn't I just have been born as a cis-girl.  I just wish that I was cis and not Trans.
    • BreM
      I overcame the struggles in my life not letting anything get in my way.Learned to figure it out and know I am well loved for who I am now
