Brand new, unsure, and nervous

Okay so... First off... I'm biologically female. When I was little and a teenager, I never liked to see myself in the mirror. I hate(d) the fact I had (have) female genitalia. I hate wearing dresses and I don't care for pink stuff. On the inside, I feel more male but on the outside it's obviously a female body. When I look in the mirror at myself, I see a boy. I just need help, advice, whatever. Just feeling a bit lost and confused. :'/

Hi Max (if I may shorten your name to that), welcome to Trans Pulse 😊

 

You will find people here who feel very similar. We help each other to understand and work out the way forward. Please don't hesitate to read around, ask questions and join in as you feel. It takes a while but you will understand yourself far better and be more relaxed. People here are friendly and helpful.

 

I look forward to seeing you around.

Welcome Max.  Glad you have joined us.  Time here reading and responding to others has helped me find my own path to self acceptance.  Each of us find that in different ways but knowing others are here who understand and offer support helps.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

Welcome Max.  I can tell you this a great place to discover you’re not alone. There are so many great people here that share their stories. Most of the time I’m just reading and trying to better understand myself. This group is super supportive, if you have questions , you will almost assuredly get some replies. I recommend touring through the various boards, you will likely already find helpful answers to a similar question. 

 

Remember that self-discovery is a step at a time. 

 

*hugs*

Welcome Max.  You're on the way and this is a good start. As noted self discovery can be fraught with perils as it challenges any preconceived notions that have been planted in our heads.   Take time to work through it all.  Read stories here to find that you are not alone.  Join in the conversation to feel apart of the community.  It takes time...

Hi Max and welcome. You have come to a wonderful place where everyone is accepting and supportive. I would suggest finding a gender therapist in you area. He/she can help you find answers and sort through any confusion that you have. I never thought that I needed to seek help, but it turned out to be one of the best decisions that I could have made. Also it helps to talk to someone who understands.

Feel free to check out the different threads and ask questions as they come to mind.

 

Hugs,

Brandi

Welcome Max!

 

Glad you found this site! It has been one of the best things that has happened for me and I know it will help you too. Like everyone is saying, just read through some of the posts and ask questions. A lot of people here have gone through the same situations and have first hand knowledge on almost all subjects. 

 

Hugs :)

Hi Max, I'm Rey. It's okay to be confused and unsure. It's a hard thing to swallow...looking at yourself and feeling disjointed and that you don't fit in your own skin. It's especially harder when you look at yourself and see a man but society is constantly telling you different. Feel free to send me a message if you need someone to talk to. And definitely explore the forums. I found it to be a relief reading about others going through the same (or similar) experiences as myself.

I also began gender therapy with encouragement from these forums and it has an enormous resource for me.

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      My opnion is. They should man up and play Rugby Union.  It's like this you speak of but without all the cotton and bubble rap.   Proper mans game 😉

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
