      Wow, that’s an incredible amount of change in a short period. I applaud you for being able to recognize the problem and be able to move to taking active steps toward living authentically as you!  Howdy Neighbor! Heck, I practically live up the road from ya! Must be difficult making all these changes during a pandemic. Although, I will say Washington state (mainly western WA) is a great place to find acceptance and/or affirmation. It’s both an opportunity and struggle as you can (eventually) express yourself with a new set of people with no preset expectations of who you are. On the other hand, due to covid, there are restrictions in how you can go about doing this. It may take a bit more time getting to know people in your area but you can still get a lot done on your journey without socialization. But I have to be honest, the social aspect of transition is what I miss the most during this pandemic. Hopefully, that will change soon. In the meantime, enjoy yourself here and learn more about who you are with the help, advice and friendship you’ll find here on our forum.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Hello Audrey, I absolutely love your name btw. Welcome to our second home! No need to wonder any longer if this has been true to others too. Many of us waited until it was hardly a choice...for some of us it was more a case of life or death. I know that I came to a crossroads in my life and could no longer deny who I was. Some can hang on to our faux persona longer than others but doing so has major blowback in some way or another. I was becoming more and more depressed and it wasn’t fun for my wife to deal with this. Thinking I would never be able to reach out to her also had it’s own set of problems for me. It seemed for me that once I started seeing and accepting my true self, it became overwhelming to keep that from my wife and I eventually had to tell her everything...and I mean everything. What a weight off me that was....my God, I felt like a different person almost immediately.   Yep, This is exactly what happened to many (not all) of my relationships. Once they see that you are more genuine and open, they seem to let their guard down too and it changes a lot within each relationship. It so good that you are at that point. It’s a scary but exciting time. I wish you the best on your next steps. It will get easier as you see that your life is yours now. Enjoy these moments...they pass so quickly.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I agree.  I’m attending church as Willow although I’m not sure that many people have recognized me yet.  I don’t go outside at home except to go to the car.  But I told my wife I was to the point that I didn’t care anymore.

      Thank you for your warm welcome, @Jackie C. ! I must confess that I have many worries, but also at least as many hopes. One of the most joyful parts of my experience so far as been how supportive and understanding the two friends I've come out to have been. I must have talked myself into and out of confiding in them a hundred times out of fear of how they might react, or whether I would regret saying anything to them. The opposite turned out to be true, and now I actually feel much closer to them than I did before! I look forward to exploring the other threads, connecting with other members, getting support during my own transition, and doing my part to extend support as well. ~Audrey.

      Oh yeah @Princess-audra, I adore Bunny Bennett! Nice to meet another fan.   OK, Pink too but Bunny is my favorite.   Hugs!

      Salutations @Neoncat! Welcome to Transpulse!   Your story will resonate with a lot of the girls here. I grew up in the 70's and 80's. Those weren't very tolerant places either. 😋 At least they weren't in the Midwest. Congratulations on figuring things out decades before I did.   Please feel free to join the discussion. Chime in. Ask questions! Obey the forum rules! We're glad you're here.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Fantastic news!   So where are you at? My paint job could use a touch up. 😋 (You can PM me so as to not violate site rules. After all, I asked.)   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Salutations @Audrey! Welcome to Transpulse! It's lovely to meet you.   Congratulations on coming out! It's a girl! 😋 May the experience be everything you're hoping for and more besides.   Please feel free to jump in and ask questions as the mood strikes you. We're pretty good at being supportive.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Hey @suzy, welcome to Transpulse!   You're absolutely right that labels don't matter. They're for other people. You're a Suzy and that's all that really matters.   So yeah, please feel free to post ask questions and join the discussion as the mood strikes you!   Hugs!
    •  Kylie

      I think this is a thing myself.   When I was just starting to go public, I ran into a bunch of my former co-workers at a festival uptown.  (I retired from the city).  I just said, "I've been through a lot of changes."
    • suzy
      I am on a nontraditional path. I have pages and pages of conversations. With myself, with others on fetlife, grindr and plain old text messages.   What I am I? I started off AMAB. I have tried to find labels that work for me. Every label is imperfect or incomplete.   I love to wear women's clothing because I like the look. I hated that my body shape didn't make the mirror image of myself look as good as I thought I should. I thought that this made me a crossdresser.   I thought that I was bisexual because I enjoy playing with people regardless of gender.   I thought I was transgender (MtF).   Each label was only a 80% match. The dictionary definition always listed out things that was not me.   *** Section about Phytoestrogens removed. It's a violation of Rule #14. We don't talk about dosages and we don't condone herbals or other OTC products here. They're dangerous to take without a doctor's supervision and results vary wildly. ***   Now I look at some pictures from some angles and I want more.   I am blessed with a loving wife. She accepts a great deal and we seem to be successfully maintaining a loving sex-positive marriage. My kids accept me.   So why am I here? There are very few trans people I know. Cis people may be kind and understanding but they don't have similar interactions with their sexual identity. They know their answers in ways that I don't relate to and they don't relate to my ambiguous sexuality.   I suppose I could label myself a genderfluid. I stopped worrying about labels though.   I like smart imaginative sensitive play partners who can accept that I can't give them my set of labels.
