Trauma after relationship with a gay transphobic ex partner

Recommended Posts

 I am looking for material or info about encounters with (narcissistic) men who are gay but transphobic. I really need to read up on such cases because I
 have encountered it, and the results of it was really extremely traumatic, as it prevented me from being who I am and it triggered a massive psychosis
 with hearing hallucinations(eerie sounds not voices). It was 7 years ago now... Ever since that, I have a lingering anxiety and constant fear. Not for him, he is gone,
 but certain sounds scare me and I have even gotten physical issues with one ear. As a comparsion, this trauma has felt vorse than even the pandemic!
 The person who did this to me is out of my life since several years now, but it has delayed my transition, I have wondered if the doctors would say
 I don't need any transsexual treatment. The fear been projected onto the medical care when I need it as much. I also fear the neighbours.
 I probably would feel much better if there are others with a similar experience, with having a relationship with a gay (and narcissistic) transphobics.
 that would help me because I feel kind of lonely in this.

@JMG that can be a stressful combination. All thru late HS/early college I was BF close with someone who slowly came out as "gay". Was "adopted" in the sense that I spent much time with his family (parents + 1 brother) as well but wouldn't call him "narcissistic", that came later in the girl I elected to marry.


        What he "triggered" in me we probably both struggle with to this day. Still unpracticed in the ways of wanting to be "his girl" we simply wound up sexually frustrating each other and eventually went our separate ways.


       At the time he was angry with me but we remained distant friends and the irony, to me, was his later confession of "how difficult the gay lifestyle can be" . . . something which I had always hoped, in vain, to change? 


Toxic people are never good why still so stressed over something you say is long over?

@KieraWhat I was through was really stressful. To the point of traumatic. This person was very manipulative, definitely a gay activist, but he had a thing for long hair, both on him and others. As I always feel better having long hair (A trans trait I did not know concuiously was a trans trait), we found each others on the net. But I found he was very easily annoyed and angry, that became a problem, I did not even know much about manipulative people  and ignored that fact. When I told him I was trans after I had realized that fact about myself he got very angry, that was then, all hell broke lose, even though pretty slowly. I remember how I dreamt WWIII broke out and he had moved to where I lived, but somehow I did not want him under those circumstances. I also know now that he really did not have any empathy at all, if I should get in huge trouble, he would not help, just get angry at me. In addition I tried to talk about female clothes on Facebook but was not sure how to put it among a place virtually the whole world population could read it. So I put it in a way they could read between the lines to find out what I wanted to talk about and dress in, but I got trolled! I tried to suppress my transsexual identity by all possible psychologic self manipulation because I was scared of his anger and I did not have the heart to be single out in the cold. I dared not even think of it and I invented and used metaphors even for myself because the topic got too "charged". Very much of the memories from back then are very vague.  I am not clear about those fearsome sounds  either, I do have weak memories of how I created them with "SynthEdit" which I had bought for other uses, and then blamed them on the environment. But the thing is, there is nothing in the environment that could sound like they did. It reminds of an electric toothbrush but very loud, but I have only ordinary brushes and I live alone. Perhaps it is a hair razor held closely to the ear? Because finally 2 years after this started, I got tired of him and his hair mania. I had suppressed my transsexuality so much that I could see myself completely as a man and I knew I resembled a "Commander Riker" from Star Trek. So I cut my hair and grew my beard to look like him, and my ex (Who actually did like Star Trek) was outrageous, I thought he could be angry as much as he wants, and this alter-ego became my super power. I felt completely secure as Riker and nothing could hurt me! I was happy and the sound imagination disappeared. My ex was not happy... I realized how shallow he was. But basically, that was what ended the "relationship" with him and that made me realizing what was wrong. All this has left me with some doubts about my transsexuality even though I am about to cure this issue finally. But reading about others with similar stories could give me support. It is pretty common that trans women think they are gay men until a certain point in their life. I have seen that on Youtube.

      Good morning   so much happened since my last visit and that was just yesterday.  Back to 4am today, off tomorrow my schedule bounces around all week but Friday morning I leave for my weekend of Lay ministry school.    let’s see, guy who wanted to see your DL, run away and block that one.  Doesn’t sound right to me. Sorry for your losses this week.  Always sad to loos a good friend they are so hard to come by, and same is true with cousins, although I never knew any of mine.     One thing I don’t have and never will is a LBD. Too old to do one any justice.  Besides where does one hide the 45?     Don’t meet a stranger without one!   well gotta try to walk the dog.  It’s raining but not cold.     and don’t take everything I say to heart.  Sometimes my sense of humor is a lot worse than I realize.  LOL   Willow

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sarah.  I think this site will live up to your expectations as a friendly, supportive and knowledgeable place.  I know that transition can be stressful and daunting and we've all been where you are now at some point.  I do hope that you are seeing, or have seen, a gender therapist or at least and M.D. to ensure that your hormone use is safe and appropriate.  We want everyone to be safe, because hormones can be dangerous if not done correctly with good supervision.  If you don;t have a gender therapist, that would be help to add to your tool kit, too.   Please ask any questions that come to mind.  The only thing we can't answer is about hormone dosages.  Please have a look around and enjoy your time here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Update:  Judge blocked the AG until a hearing on March 25.  I don't think that hearing will go well for the Bully In Chief.   https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/judge-blocks-texas-collecting-info-transgender-children-receiving-107731447   Carolyn Marie

      PFLAG and the families have some powerful legal minds working for them.  Paxton may please his base of bigots, but he won't win.  I think he knows it, too.   Carolyn Marie

      This one is not that far "off the wall." They just consider us mentally ill anyway.  We need to be corrected somehow - kinda like the Chinese do with the Uyghurs.  Time to break out the pink triangles.

      hi i guess this is where i tell you about myself and some goings on. my quick and dirty trans history about 20 off years ago I confessed to my best friend about wanting to be a girl she was super supportive said she'd get everyone to use whatever name I want and treat me like one of the girls at the time I didn't know transitioning really existed the LGBT was really just an LG so I didn't think it was actually possible to more than cross dress and dismissed the idea and forgot about until 6 years ago I met a transwoman in a Discord community which and awoken 20 year old memories, a few years later after self debate I admitted to myself that I was trans eventually came out to a few people and in October of last year started taking hormones. The actually transitioning is taking time I duelmode mainly being my true self at home for right now. How I ended up here: I wasn't prepare for the hormones which have been a struggle wild mood swings and just constant anxiety attacks, I've only recently been able to clear my head and quell my anxiety with medication enough to function. I had some bad moment and alienated myself from some people dear to me and I'm questioning whether to keep going or not. I've been doing a lot to improve my situation picking myself up doing self care but I realize I can't do this on my own so I've been adding to my support network, people in my circles, support groups and communities like here. From what I read so far this feels like a wonderful community and I look forward to being apart of it. Thank you

      All I can do is shake my head. This will be followed by the other 19 R states soon enough. They are more persistent than piranha. A few days ago I received an email from a recruiter trying to recruit me to a hospital in Oklahoma. I told them that I was a transgender female and would not consider Oklahoma. The recruiter could have cared less.   Sadly, I am not sure the rest of the public really cares what happens to us. There is going to be some massive pain down the road regardless of who wins the national election. I think the next logical move is that they will try to roll back the insurance coverages we gained with private insurers.   Short of a huge blue wave hitting the country, they have zeroed in on us. I just wonder if there will be Schutzstaffel troops coming to take us away. Seems like the only missing piece.

      Ivy, these folks are beyond psychotic. Make America Germany Already. You could not make this stuff up. I am waiting for an initiative to be launched requiring us to go to a re-education camp, and receive forced HRT of our birth gender. Sometimes there are no words that one can express...
