Hello everyone. I love this site and from the stories I read it appears that I'm in the same position as a lot of the m to f trans gals. I've been stealth my whole life. Years ago I read Christine Jorgensens book and knew that j was like her. I have also been suicidal in the past and I'm beginning to understand the reality that I just need to live an authentic life. I've contacted a counselor and plan on beginning the process to hrt. I am not out yet so I'm worried about all of the things that will happen. I have a very complicated life at the moment, so I'm trying to work thru all of this. I'm glad I found this place.

Welcome to the site Jennifer.  I'm glad you've found it to be beneficial.  Seeing a counselor will certainly help in your journey.  Just be totally open as otherwise you may not gain the benefit you wish.   Please join in the conversation.  We'd love to hear from you.

Welcome to the site Jennifer! This is a great place of resources and support. The only advice I can give you right now is ask questions and listen to those who have traveled the road  you are about to go down. There is a lot of information and advice even in the older posts and threads that is very helpful. So don't be afraid to stretch your cyber legs and take a stroll through the back pages  of the forum either.

 

Huggsss!!

So I just set up my 1st therapy appointment with Doctor Dr. Michele O'mara. I'm a little nervous. Its via video chat. She is very active in our community and seems nice.

Nervous or excited??  Just starting the open discussion of what is and has gone on finally is a wonderful moment in life for us and should excite us but the discovery of what really is in us is just beginning and we know there is a chance that some of it may be spooky and scary, and also some of it will be painful in ways we have not experienced until the day we admit who we are to a person we do not know, but hope to trust with our sanity.  I do not know the therapist you are consulting, but if they are active with Trans people they know that your experience is different from other peoples, but they are also there to support YOU as well as others.  They cannot tell you you are or are not Trans, but they will help you calm your own feelings about yourself to move forward in YOUR OWN direction to YOUR OWN goals.

Hi Vicky..I guess I'm both nervous and excited. I just know that I've needed to take this step for a long time and it really wasn't possible until now. I really want to start hrt soon..

@Jennifer W  I have to chuckle a bit, since today is a significant anniversary for me on my transition journey and I just made a nostalgic post about it here.  One thing that HRT is now being used for in some cases is to see how the person will respond to it, and confirm the GD diagnosis.  It has a huge success rate.

Jennifer just let it all out. Yes it may hurt at times (it did for me) but it's really cathartic and it allows us to move on. And this is what we all really want. Don't be afraid or be fearful. Enjoy the moment.

Thanks Jani..I will. I have a lot going on in my life. I just want to begin living. I've always had this turmoil. I can remember when I was 6 years old or so wanting to be female. Thank you..

I remember the amazing relief and understanding i felt as i remembered and related incidents throughout my life.  It takes openness and honesty but for me it helped to lift the shame and guilt that had also been a part of my story.  I remember the incredible relief and how excited i was when i took the drive home.  I also looked forward to the next meeting.

We are all different but exploring our feelings with a non judgmental person can be as Jani notes "cathartic".

Take a deep breath, dive in and enjoy.

 

Hugs,

      Hello Chelsea and welcome.  I think you'll find friends here who can support you.  Please join in the conversation and post your own questions or observations.  I'm glad to hear your family life has returned to order.   Having a supportive family is great.   Jani

      I'm glad your life is back to normal.  That is what we all seek.  Your family sounds as if they are really trying.  Good for them!

      FYI,   https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/20/health/arizona-trans-woman-cvs-pharmacist-prescription-trnd/index.html   The article went on to say the pharmacist no longer works there. But it took filing a report to the state agency there.    How distressing.....

      Hi Chelsea         Wow, I am happy things are finally going so well for you. I am not sure what I am just yet I was born male and know that I feel female. I am still on a road of discovery about myself. If you'd like to talk I'll listen.      Natalie

      I am an avid MTG player, even though I've slowed down on my purchases due to saving money. Anyone else play? I've bought cards recently from Dominaria, but I'd love to find people to play with, maybe via Skype? I font play the online version, because, well... $$$. I also prefer the feel of a real card over a mouse.
    • ChelseaAnn
      Hello everyone, my name is Chelsea. I was born male but dream to be female. That dream is getting closer, but has been snagged from me a few times.    I'll keep things short, because I have a blog which describes things in more detail if you're interested. I came out back in 2013, only a few months after my son was born. I was cross dressing while my wife was at work and my son slept. I came to a realization that I wouldn't be able to hide it forever, and took the big step.   After nearly divorcing, my life is back on track and my wife and I have a five year old and a two year old. I have a great job, which isn't aware of my plans yet. Transition is only a few years away, even though I was weeks away from starting at the beginning of last year.   I was suicidal not long after I came out, and have only had thoughts a few times since, when large snags came up that made it seem like I'd never be able to transition. I'm good now though.   I came here to seek new friends and discuss things, as well as help those who are where I was five years ago. I'd really like to have a few friends who are trans or anything on the spectrum. I have some great friends (read family) who are 100% supportive, but only 2 who are under the trans community. So I am really looking for someone to be able to talk to who I can be openly honest and understanding with.

      So many things are going on now.   I'm Callum 100% of the time including at work (that was scary but it makes me feel so good! Except when my boss asks awkward questions in front of everyone and decides that I must have issues with my "downstairs" Her and a male co-worker were joking about certain parts of his body but anyway) My whole family call me Callum 24/7  there are still a few mix ups but those that are finding it difficult call me CJ (Callum James) I can finally bind!!(I only do it when I leave the house.) So happy altho I've noticed that it hurts when I take it off, I don't have any pain while wearing my binder, is this nomal? I was very very very surprised but my family bought up the idea of us going to the pride parade... I wasn't even going to mention it but they said it looks interesting and have now decided we are going to two different ones. We're going to the one at the end of this month because a distant family member goes to the same one with her gay son, shes offered to show us around and then the second one is in the place we live very excited!! The whole family is going!! Even my brothers who were very "no no no" When I joked about it when I came out to them.   I just... I don't have the words... This is amazing and I find myself worried I'm going to wake up and its all a dream. I don't wanna get too used to it in case it all goes wrong or gets wrecked (I hope this makes sense)   I did have a very strange moment and I was just wondering if anyone gets what I mean or if I'm just imaging it but as I said Callum  mode 24/7 but last week I had to go back to my female clothing and its like all my awkwardness and hating myself came back, my confidence just faded away... I could feel myself not wanting to be a part of the world and I felt so down.... Does this make sense? Now I'm back to normal and I'm the life of the party again lol What a strange life I lead.   Any thoughts folks?   *happy contented sigh*

      For the first time in all my 46 years of dressing as a girl,I have gone without wearing tights.The weather here in the Uk has been so warm for so many weeks it is not practical to wear hose.I love my tights as they make my legs look great but I have not minded going bare legged.Tights can be very uncomfortable im warm weather.Most women over here do not wear tights in this hot weather.As it is always my intention to emulate genetic women I am happy to dress like they do in the summer.Without tights I wear open toed sandles and mules.It's funny in male mode when I am out I never wear mens ooen toed sandals or flip flops and wear shoes with socks.I have never been comfortable in displaying feet.However,in female mode I do not mind doing this.Must be something to do with the duality of crossdressing.
