Doubts

Recommended Posts

BrandenLeon

I just feel like i am crazy... i keep doubting myself constently. I think i am trans, but everyone says no. 

Maybe i am just confused and lost in a sea of raw emotions. 

I keep feeling like i am trans, but i dont honestly know anymore. Maybe i am just confused myself, or just delusional.

 

Maybe i should just stop and expect me beginning so uncomfortable in my own skin. 

 

Sorry for the vent. I just feel like it the only place i can express myself, i guess.

 

Thanks for reading. Sorry for the vent.

Who is telling you you are not trans when you say "everyone" says no? I would suggest seeing a therapist unless you have already and they also said you are not trans? While it is nice to come on here and learn and gather others' opinions based on their own journey I would also seek the help of a professional gender therapist as well if you haven't already.

it's ok to vent, we all need that at some point I think.

 

I'll just add my 2 cents :

it's normal to be confused, a lot of us are in the beginning if it's just for the fact that all in all being trans is kind of rare and often we strive to belong and not really to stick out. I don't know if you are trans or not but just take it one step at a time a see from there? You can try things and explore and see if you are confortable.

 

look, I know that for me there was a lot of clues that I was trans trough the years. Never the less, a lot of people when I came out said that I was a very normal straight guy. Yet, growing up some people were conviced I was gay. I think that people develop a mythology about others. They see what they want to see. Don't listen to that. The more you will do that the more what you really are inside (trans or not) will be really jarring compared to others vision of you.

WIse words from Mia and MaryMary.  People think they know us better than we know ourselves and sometimes we're not even sure ourself.  Most of us mimic and try to be like people we look up to but even then that may not be who we really are inside.  It takes time and patience to find our true selves.  For me it was a lot of trial and error through the years.  My perspection of myself has changed several times through my life.  Yours may too or you may figure it out sooner than most.  A good counselor or therapist can usually get you started in the right direction.  Best of luck to you.

Therefore you are. Embrace yourself and the inner You that is trying to burst out! Have you spoken to a Gender Therapist? I fully recommend seeing one. They will help you speak out and express yourself. Continue your research and Im sure there will be many posts and people in here that can help you too. I hope the best for you on Your Journey!

      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.

      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)

      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.
