I thought I had made peace with my body. I am not transgender. Transition isn't an option. I am somewhere betwixt and between. I thought I was a freak. I though there really wasn't a way to present myself. So. I am a girl. It may be a costume, but it allows me to move through the world. In reality, I drank. I've been trying to maintain sobriety for years. It hasn't happened. I am sobor now. Recently, someone came in to my life who tried to help me. I fought her every step of the way. Bite the hand that feeds. Mostly because this person stirred something that I thought was long gone. Also neither,also an other. I thought they knew my secret just looking at me. Instead of being transparent. This is what I was holding on to. I drove them from my life. But this is cracked open again. I have to face it now. I need resources, or community or just some kind  sounding board.

Welcome Prukie.  Finding our way with gender is quite a process.  I've found it to be a lifetimes work.  Being here helped me.  You are not alone.

 

Hugs,

Welcome to Trans Pulse, Prukie.  It is never easy being unsure of yourself, not knowing what is real, what isn't, and who the real you is.  I hope that we can help just a little with your questions, concerns, and confusion.  Ask us anything, and we'll do our best to give you honest answers.

 

HUGS

Hey Prukie, Welcome!   Making peace with our selves, wow, that can be hard as just when we think we're there we get a curve ball thrown our way.  As Charlize says, its a journey that can take some time.  But that's OK as anything worth having is worth the effort.  I'm glad to hear you're staying sober.  Don't reject those around you out hand as you may find the strong support you want.  Having someone to walk along with can be invigorating.

 

We are definitely here as a sounding board for you.  

 

Jani

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani

      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
