Sandra’s transgender

Recommended Posts

Sandra6sandy9sand

Hi All, Sandra here

 

I have been visiting Laura’s for two or three years now and must have one of the girls removed by the new software. No problem for me other than I have not been able to complete my profile. 

 

Anyhow, after reading many individuals life experiences and doing some other research, I have concluded that I am transgender and not a cross dresser. I have looked back over the last 67 years (I started cross dressing and dreaming of becoming a girl at 6 or 7) of my life and realized that there is a woman locked inside me.

 

I’ve been a successful husband and father doing all the things that society and family have expected.  I am out to my wife who would prefer having only a man around the house but accepts, to some degree, my feminine side.

 

At 73 I do not want or could afford surgery.  The important thing to me is that I have accepted myself as a woman in a mans body and I can live happily for the rest of my life this way.

 

Thank you to all the ladies and gentlemen who have shared their life struggles on Laura’s and now transgender pulse.  I do not feel alone.

 

Hugs

 

Sandra

Hello Sandra and welcome back.  We're glad you're here.  Accepting ones self is an important step to finding balance in life. I am so I am happy for you.  It really doesn't matter how old we are.  Thats good that your wife is accepting although I'm sure she finds it difficult to understand.  My own experience and as you've probably read here, is that we really don't change too much beyond the physical aspects.  Friends have commented that beyond the initial surprise they find I am the same person.  Hopefully your wife will experience your softer side and come to appreciate the complete person you now can be.

Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sandra.  You are never too old to be true to yourself.  I'm glad you've discovered that to be true.

Welcome back Sandra.  I made a similar decision at 63 and have found that decision to open a wonderful period of my life filled with the freedom and honesty of simply being me.  Enjoy!

 

Hugs,

Hello Sandra. Welcome back. I believe that we should be who we want to be and live our lives how we want to. I've been dressing since I was 5 so like you a lifer. My SO recently learned of my dressing and my feminine side. Like yours she's accepting and tolerates me but doesn't get involved. There are so many wonderful ladies here. We are all one big family here and I'm glad to call them sisters. Hugs. Amber

      An interesting read!   One of the sayings I often use, Jani, is that the difference between a man and a women is that they each inherit a different set of problems.   Tracy

      It looks very peaceful Jani. I love the colours on the trees as well!   Tracy x

      I personally started by being very vocal about my support of LGBT issues. This was during the presidential election and I've been Dem my whole adult life so it wasn't very surprising. I also worked my butt off (literally) losing weight. I prepped my friends by showing them my favorite band, Steam Powered Giraffe, who has a trans female singer. They all reacted with a kind of "that's nice, good for her" attitude so I felt safe telling them. By putting subtle hints into every day life it lets you know how people feel about the topic before you out yourself.

      Hi Arianna!!! I'm glad you introduced yourself! I know what you are going through.....I was such a sullen and broody individual before I finally THREW the curtains OPEN and faced my issues directly. I was a very moody person, and suffered some depression here and there but it turns out it was because I was not living for myself, and I was repressing who I really was. Anyway, fast forward to 38, and this year when I finally looked at myself in the mirror and started making changes. It can be a hard and scary journey though. I have never felt better, happier or more at ease with life than I do now....but the first steps were really scary. I hope only the best for you, Arianna......your doing the right thing! Go GIRL!  Kisses and Hugs,   Sunny Kay

      Hello Amy.  Things certainly sound like they are heading in the right direction for you.  Your GP sounds great too.   Jani

      A very good essay.   Interestingly the comments were not incendiary.  I liked this (partial) reply to one, though it didn't speak to the scouting aspect of the essay.  "While the specifics of moving from male to female and female to male differ, the motivations are essentially the same: they are all about identity, and really have nothing to do with "the grass is greener on the other side." We transsexuals think about this long and hard (because all we hold dear is at-risk), and we realize that when we change, we are gaining the problems of one side whilst losing the problems of the other (and having transgender problems besides!), BUT most of find the new problems worth the joy of being true to ourselves - very very few of us go back."  Hopefully the prior commenter who seemed supporting learned something.     Changing my problems for new ones; thats an action I can understand!   Jani

      Line up someone to assist you with daily activities like shopping, cleaning and the such for the first week or so afterwards.  You'll be tired and busy with "homework".   Jani
