Physically sick from dysphoria


Penrose-Pauling

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have this? I know I have very awful dysphoria- I get mad at just seeing a male. Things like learning about the differences between afab and amab biology makes me sick. My head and chest will hurt and my hands will shake, on the emotional side I just feel angry and depressed. I really can't do anything about it because it happens the most in class and public. At home I can be alone and everything and I guess just wallow. I feel like im being driven insane when this happens because it sucks so damn much.

You need to be calling your Therapist and probably your Primary Care Physician about this one.  What you are describing needs medical attention and possibly other groups of medication to treat it depending on what they find after a careful medical evaluation.

I've seen a doctor recently, I'm a generally healthy person. I hardly ever get sick and I don't have any conditions aside from mental ones. I've had this thing for years now- I'm almost totally sure this is from dysphoria as it only happens when I'm upset about it.

You still need Behavioral Health attention for that type of thing if it is really as upsetting to your life as you claim.

Penrose-Pauling If you are being physically affected and sick from dysphoria, you do have a medical condition which needs treatment. Dysphoria is the stress from gender incongruence, and generally cannot be fixed quickly, so if this is causing you physical distress, or significantly affecting your life, you need medical treatment. 

 

I cannot stress enough how important this is. I fought dysphoria, and lost. It initially caused depression and reduced immune response so that a simple virus almost killed me. The long term stress caused changes in my blood and blood pressure which led to a heart attack and two cardiac arrests. Dysphoria is a beast we must deal with to survive long term. Unfortunately, not every doctor or therapist is experienced enough to properly treat gender related health problems, so it is very much worth doing some research to find experienced providers, recommended by other trans people. 

 

What we do about these things has consequences, make sure they are good for you and not bad!

 

Hugs,

 

Allie

      It's funny that it takes a bit before it sinks in. Then it's like.... Oh wow! They are hitting on me! 😲

      Not to mention our economy for our first 80 or 90 years as a nation relied on slave labor.

      Welcome Cindy. I found the same some years ago.  Then there was mostly porn on the internet and finding this site where i could safely share with others was a great support as i found my path. Its simply great to know we are not alone.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Apparently  Most of us missed out on the socialization.

      It was that top you were wearing!!  Sometimes we all get taken a bit by surprise. I walked out of the house last week to walk our puppy and dead into the Fedex delivery guy. I just kinda freaked out, babbled something, tried to grab our puppy and was just totally a nerd. I still am embarrassed but it was the first time I wasn't in control of who and when people saw me.   We're just learning things most women learn in their teens, aren't we?

      Had a guy try to pick me up at the grocery store today.  He was very persistent. As a trans woman in my 70's, I am not used to this.  I think I might have been too friendly.  I'm kinda confused at how I acted.  I still feel weird about it.  Really I was kinda stupid.  But I did not give him my number.

      There are days I think, "I should make some calls to a few legal organizations to see what they say about the treatment Birdie gets". You muscle it out, but what happens to the next person that isn't as tough? Or the next?

      What a nice story. The world's a better place when we make connections.

      The romanticism for a form of society that can only be viewed through the beer goggles of history is kind of odd IMO. "We did it right, back then" is a bit reductive. There was so much we did so wrong for so long. We continue to do right and wrong things, but to say "let's oil our guns and set it all on fire" is far flung and would destroy society for a very, very, long time. Maybe forever. And not in a "it's better now" kind of way. In a "we're all dead" kind of way.

      Finally did finish that single mom's house,was the door I replaced.Her son helped and taught him to use my finish nail gun when putting the trim back on.He was not scared of it.Did what I taught him on the spot.That single mom thanked me knowing I went through hard times in life too and helped her out back.Said it will be her turn to help someone out back going through hard times in life.Saw I was open about my life,she noticed something about me too and told her I have a female side of me.Told her I crossdress part time going by Hailey.Said she has a couple friends that are transgender that she loves and accepts.Said to come by dressed as Hailey sometime
