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,
