      I would like to see that article. When I first started realizing what was going on I watched a movie with my wife called Tranzformed. It is a documentary created by detransitioners (by the way, gigantic trigger warning for the movie). I would like to see the full stories of those people, and see if any of them are changing their minds now.   This movie has been a huge source of confusion, difficulty, and dysphoria for me. And it certainly didn't help my wife move toward accepting me.   Belle 😖

      Hi, everyone. You can call me Lily!   I’m 20 years old and just recently had my “moment of realization.” I’ve been questioning my gender for four-ish years, but was mostly in denial about it until a few months ago. I’ve pretty much decided now that I want to be a girl.   I don’t really know what’s next for me. I have (diagnosed) social anxiety disorder and talking to people is extremely difficult. I haven’t been able to talk to anyone about these feelings, even my therapist. Lately my disphoria has gotten so bad that it’s affecting my daily life and my family has noticed and is concerned about my well-being. I can’t keep bottling up my feelings, so I had to promise myself that I would do something. That something was coming here.   It’s very difficult for me to share here too, but at least I know I will be accepted here. I look forward to meeting everyone in this community!

      Not sure if it was this site I saw a link to an article that stated those that de-transition are in the minority, and de-transition because of external pressures, (money, family, friends, job, support, religion, social constraints, etc). The article also states that a high number of those that de-transition resume transitioning months, or years later.

      Thanks, everyone!

      Me too! It helps round your face out. They're really, really hard to find around here though. I feel fortunate that I managed to scrounge up what I did.   Hugs!

      Call your pharmacist and ask that one, beats me as to why.  I am not a pharmacist or pharmacist's assistant.

      This was hard for me too. My therapist suggested that I take it slow and start with explaining my behavior away as cross-dressing and telling her it was completely sexual. I did not do that. PRO TIP: Do not open with a joke. It might seem like a good idea to break the tension, but it really, really wasn't.   Hugs!

      @Miseria, both of those glasses suit you well!  I couldn't say if I liked one pair over the other, but I may be slightly biased toward the round frames, possibly because I wear round frames... 😉

      Thank you Susan. It has taken a fair amount of imagination, to say the least, to picture the person I want to be when all is said and done. But when that moment hit me that I COULD imagine it, it was quite the revelation, like a thunderclap on a clear blue day. And it's fascinating the ways I've already changed since the realization. I feel a sense of optimism for the future I haven't experience since I was a teenager and a confidence that I'm on the right track that I've never had before.   Second attempt at therapy is set for tonight, and if that goes well, I might try to talk to my wife this weekend. Keeping her in the dark is the only real aspect of this whole process that's really bothering me.   Thank you all for the positive vibes and messages, it is making a big difference. It's great that there's a place like this where we can share these journeys.

      Welcome to the forum Kathy! We welcome you with open arms and minds. I hope you find the same comfort I did here!

      Thanks for your advice I love the story and I am really good around with strangers because I am extroverted too, just when I like someone my brain doesn't want me to mess up and look like a complete idiot, but he finds it cute. This morning he sat in the back of the bus and he told me to sit next to him, I abided.    There was one time I was in the bathroom and washing my hands and looked to the person next to me and let the water overflow and I said "Wow, this water is really getting out of hand." They laughed at me and smiled, I like making people's day better

      Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!

      I get this. I respect everyone and I'm aware that each person is different but for me transition was a last resort solution that helped me a lot. I can't go back. (trigger warning) I know how suicidal I was before, I won't ever go back to that. That's true for my transition but also for other aspects of my life, how I make decision, how I take care of my mental health, how I allow myself to be positive or negative, etc. For me there's 2 options, accepting me like this or kill me, that's as simple as that.

      Welcome Kathy, nice to have you in our community!  I had an nearly identical experience at that stage and the outcome was the same.  It has created an even stronger bond in our marriage and I’m sure you’ve experienced something similar.  The  reception to my coming out to family was and still is mixed after the dust settled.  I’m glad yours was much more accepting.  Also, congratulations on the upcoming GRS surgery.  This is wonderful and exciting news.  My wife and I have recently agreed that I will be having the surgery with an appt. scheduled in two weeks to discuss it with my Dr.  I bet you’re having so many emotions regarding your GRS.  I know I am and it’s, at minimum, a year or so off.  Thanks for sharing some of yourself with us here.  I look forward to reading more. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷
