Dyshporia... and alone with it

Recommended Posts

Elliot

Hey ho!

Sorry if this topic is already here. Hope it's not that bad or stuff like that.

Yeah the title describes my problem pretty well. I suffer from dysphoria (I hate my breasts so so much) and I feel pretty lonely with it. I know I can talk to my friends but... I don't know... it's just... I don't them to know that I don't feel well right now. I mean... they shouldn't be worried about me, I can deal with it... somehow. But on the other side I know that I can deal with my problems better if I talk to them. Complicated I know. Maybe that's why I writing this here right now... or whatever.

But enough of talking about that sad stuff. Here's my question: how do you deal with dysphoria when you have "a bad day"? Do you talk about it or just go to sleep and try to forget about it? Do you have some tips for a lil person like me or do you think I should do this on my own?

 

Love and hugs :alien:

Hi

Welcome Elliot :)

I think you should not have to try and forget anything. You should accept and be able to talk about it. You are not on your own!

Here, at least, you can talk about things and share ideas with others. People here are aware of problems and feelings people have. Don't be afraid to talk. If you wish a more direct response please log onto chat.

Everyone is here for each other, and we all have questions and answers.

For one answer to your question - I think about things and try to workout what would have been a better approach to the day, or even dream about living it how I feel I should have. Then, although it is often practical to do so totally, at least work toward it.

Be thankful for what you were able to do each day, and there is much in each day that was actually done.  Spend the time looking for that. 

We can let our "real self" out even in our less happy clothing in small ways that we notice but others may not.  Maybe it is just seeing how pretty a dress in a store looks and we do not have to hide the fact that we would love to get it from our deepest self.  Imagine how nice it will be to receive flowers some day.  As a male you would grunt and make a noise about how they "smell OK", but to  yourself they smell wonderful and look so pretty and you can smile.  Let your girl self look at the day and let that self tell you happy stories each night.

Aw thank you for your kind words. It's so nice to read that, really. It means a lot to me. Thanks to you I feel better now, really I do.

I'll think about what you said and try to look forward. And I'll accept myself as I am, even sometimes it's just me who accept it. But I guess, as long as I do it, someday my closest people will it too :) Again, thank you. It's nice to know that I've a place where I'm not alone. Where I can be just the person I am.

 

Love and hugs :alien:

       So I know for myself separating at 7 1/2 years, that yes some VA centers provide some basic care and treatment. But for those who made the long stretch to 20+ I was under the impression ya'll get Tricare still correct? I'm not sure how the VA's basic services are compared to still remaining on Tricare. As for current service treatment, still Tricare but obviously on post, I've not stopped receiving care up to this point. The army still continues to refine, but March is still slated to be the termination for surgeries covered, but I don't believe that affects HRT or BHH. Assuming Tricare's on post and retirement plans or similar perhaps expect something along those lines? But of course your best bet is to probably start calling and asking about it now.   ~Sara J

      Erin, welcome and back to your point.  The VA will treat you regardless.  You can ask for a referral to therapist and even obtain hormones after normal protocols are done, just like in civilian life.     What branch of service? Jani

      It's worth noting that the rules, to which you agreed on signing up, advise against evading the profanity filter.  Offensive terms are not allowed to be used here; that's not censorship, it's common sense.

      We do have an auto word filter that will change offensive words to something that is less offensive. Looking at it now, I can see that the term, dimwitted, is probably just as offensive as the word it replaced. We'll have to see about fixing that. Please accept our apologies for the stress this has caused you.

      You are all so wonderful with your kind words. I'm so grateful for the love and family I have here. I don't post all that much, but when I do, you all make me feel so good about myself. Thank you so much! I love you all ❤️❤️❤️

      I think you have to have a intuition about it. It is super personal and other people might not think much of it like some others have said, but it's something you need to be comfortable with I think.  By taking your time and thinking about it, I'm sure you'll make the right choice for yourself!   Hugs,   Sunny Kay

      I did not write "dimwitted!" in my original post. I wrote that I was *filter evasion*  Are we being auto-censored here? Censoring is not what my military service was about.
