Hello, new member.

Hi, as you can tell by my username my name is Rob, or Robert. I am a trans male looking for support. I was recommended to this website by a friend on another forums website. Not much to tell about me except it is debilitating living in the closet and a family member of mine would probably harass me for discovering I am transgender due to the fact they came out way before me. I also struggle with other issues that I won't mention for privacy purposes. I like music and movies. Not much to tell about me except that I'm glad I joined this website for support and I hope it can benefit me. Thanks for reading.

Welcome Rob.  This site was important for me.  Finding that I wasn’t alone in an environment of non judgemental acceptance certainly has helped me get through rough times.

Try to relax and enjoy.

 

Hugs

Hi Rob and welcome! This forum is full of friendly, supportive folks, who helped me a lot through my trans experiences and transition. 

 

For what it's worth, I've seen a number of articles about multiple family members being transgendered. I can't help if there is a genetic factor to these 'coincidences'.

 

Also, I can't speak for you, but perhaps the family member of yours who came out inspired courage in you to realize aspects of your own identity? 

 

Again welcome. Feel at ease to post and inquire here, it's a great supportive community. 

 

❤️

Hello Toni,  perhaps subconsciously it could have helped but after reading more and watching videos and movies about transgender-ism it helped me realize my identity. Thanks for the reply, it means a lot. :)

Hello Rob and welcome!  Please join in the conversation.  As to your trans family member, I wouldn't be concerned.  We are all individuals.  We live our lives and do things on our own timeline.  I sure they did as well.  

 

Cheers, Jani

Hi Rob! Welcome!

I'm pretty new here myself. Lots to read and learn here. Very good support from caring people who have very likely trod the exact same path you're on.

      We have a naughty word filter that takes care of most obscenities. F bombs will earn you a rap on the knuckles with a ruler as will the common word for feces. It might be a good idea to double check what you have written before hitting the submit tab   MaryEllen

      am i allowed to swear on here? i dont swear alot, but sometimes it just comes naturally and i have to remove it or block it.

      I always shave mine, but they just go hairy again. Still an inconvenience to have to shave, but to me it is much better than the horrible black thick hairs everywhere. They're my main cause for dysphoria.

      hi, i keep having thoughts that i'm not trans, even though i know that i am. i think its influenced by some of my family and other people that i know, who try to deny it. is there any way to stop these thoughts and reassure myself?
    • AnnaD
      thats just ridiculous to be honest, i already hate schools stopping students from wearing certain clothes (unless theyre offensive) or having certain hair etc... but when they kick a student out just for something that they can't change, its too much.
    • AnnaD
      i'm only out to a few people so far, but when i'm eventually out fully, i see theres quite a lot for me to look forwards to. i know that it takes a lot of pressure off. 👍

      So a lot of threads here are about the challenges of coming out and the such. One thing in all the therapy I have done over and over, is that we should try and look for good things. Now, their are struggles, and the other posts serve functions in helping people understand what they are about to face, and how they might deal with it. But, I thought it would be cool if we had a list of things from people of all the things that make them smile, or have bouts of joy that can only occur because they are out! For me: -When someone calls me Mackenzie or she/her it makes me feel good.  -When I see a dress that looks wonderful, I get to say, "Yeah, I am going to buy that" instead of "Damn, I wish I could get that." -The look of my body when it is hairless, and I am wearing my feminine clothing, and I see a women in front of me in the mirror.   Those are just the tip of the ice burgs! Share yours, and lets couple the advice in this forum with some highlights and silver linings!

      this is actually [messed] up (not sure if swearing is allowed here so i've blocked it out)

      this is a long chain of replies

      this is great ^^^^^^

      sorry this is quite a bit late, but yes, a nurse should understand. the nurses in my school are great, but i know some teachers who are just plain ignorant. at least your friend Will and your teacher is supportive, its good to have friends.

      you're basically going through another puberty, so you might feel a bit strange. a needle is still a small price to pay for your correct hormones 👍

      that's a nice poem, well done 👍

      I was exhausted after the movie Endtime I went to bed right away, actually sleeping til 5am. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I drove to a 24hr Mexican food drive through and bought a breakfast burrito, and drove to a drive thu Starbucks, 😂🚙🌯☕️.  Then the a/c technician called early, amazing, so I had to 🚙💨 over to my friends house to help. She doesn’t like to home alone with technicians, I don’t mind. That took a while. Then dropped an electric razor for my dad, then shopping for groceries, made it out of Costco with spending over $100, then finally back home to eat lunch.

      My breast forms became uncomfortable pretty fast when I began HRT.  Charlize idea about the "adds one size" type of silicone enhancers did work for a time as well.  Another product that I used are called petals which have s sticky silicone  surface on one side that keeps the nipples from being as obvious when you are not wearing a bra.  An old riddle that I have posted here a time or two that does have truth to it: What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.    I have maxed out (after 10 years) at a B and find the front closing bras to work better for me.  Part of my tissue is under my arms and the Front Close pushes that forward.
