Welcome to Transgender Pulse, good to have you with us.

 

You are definitely NOT Cis gender from what you describe here.  Genderfluid or Non Binary are the real possibilities I see in what you describe.  Both categories (or maybe they are the same) have come to fall into the Trans circle of life, and that is not a bad thing.  You need to find a Therapist who understands gender diversity and Gander Dysphoria, and really carefully work with them to find the best niche for you, and develop a program of what you need to make your life right.

whats tough is that i think that i might have social anxiety and last year i was not  able to wear things that made me happy without being scared about what others think.This year i have been able to wear what i want to. I feel quite confident and nice in a v neck t shirt flanned , jeans, and jewlery but i also feel confident in boys clothes.

I am a sneaky old grand parent, so here is a suggestion:  Gender Dysphoria can disguise itself in many things that make it hard to do school work, get along with friends and generally find yourself depressed because of the pressure it puts on you. The counseling can also help you with the other anxiety A counselor can work with you on those issues and since as a teenager they cannot tell your folks everything you tell them, you can put in the gender issues as you get help for the other issues.  Gender Therapists started out as the garden variety therapist but most therapists are becoming aware of the problems and may be happy for you to help them improve.

Welcome to our family.  I guarantee there are folks here that feel the exact same way and hopefully they chime in.  
I was going to suggest a school counselor too. To get some help up front and get the ball rolling.  Work in the gender topic when you feel comfortable.
Good Luck!

Hi and welcome Kitty!

I cannot add anything to excellent advice given above, except to say talking with a counselor can make a huge difference - at least it has for me.

Welcome Kitty. I too can’t add anything to the great advice above. Just know you’re not alone in what going through. Many folks stories, while unique, have a lot in common too. 
 

Speaking to people, especially those with training is usually of great help to many. I know that once I found my therapist and was able to start to open up and share, I have felt better. Still have a long road ahead, but at least I’m walking down it and not frozen in place in fear. 
 

This is also a great place to ask questions, share and see that you’re definitely not alone. 
 

*hugs*

Kitty,  There is no quick fixes or guidelines we can tell you to make your life as you want it to be right now.  We can only support and encourage you as best we can and try to give advice but in the end it will be up to you to decide and do for yourself.  Up front you need most of all to be calm and try to be understanding about how what you are saying effects others.  Being all upset all the time and yelling or getting angry serves no one and may make things worse for you.  It is easy to feel its all about "us" but it is also about everyone in your life who cares and loves you too.  It can take time for them to understand. 

Unfortunately as a youth you have more constrains then just society too.  Its a shame your family does not support you as things would be so much easier in your home life.  For you in general, but no crying over spilt milk as they say.  Keep trying to communicate with your family.  Over time they may see the light and what you are going through is not just stage.  But pain and emotional hurt. This takes time too.

For you it will be an up hill battle but you can only fight it one day at a time.  Maybe hour by hour some days as you live your life and grow.  You can do it.  I suggest giving yourself some long talks or serious time to think about what it is your are feeling and how to fix or heal it.  To try and make a plan to get to where you want to be,  Try to fix the things you do have control over first.  There will be a lot you don't due to your parents it sounds.  But there are many you can if you think about it.

You as a trans youth will have to summon a lot of courage to be who you are inside.  It will be hard and scary.  Well past your years living with your parents.  But eventually you will get to a point where you can triumph over your fears and tell those that can help and encourage you.  It may take quite some time to reach this place I'm not going to lie.  It took me about 4 decades so I feel your pain.  Though my story is way different from yours.  I only wish I had the courage to come out when I was young. 

Please don't give up on yourself.  In the end you are the only one who can take care of you in this journey.

      Salutations Tristan, as someone still on their journey I can only say take your time and explore ypurself. Step by step be they leaps or bounds, baby steps or even down to a crawl... The direction is to the truest you that you can be.
    • Miseria
      Salutations and welcome Lily, hopefully you can find some peace of mind and learn of yourself as well as others... The time to grow is now bit by bit🎵

      Well, I suffered for years not knowing or understanding how I felt or why.  Depression, anger and periodic “needs” involving being feminine.     When things got too bad to deal with I finally sought help.  It didn’t take long for my therapist to figure me out.  I am on hrt but no plans for gcs.     like others here, could I forget who I am?  No way.  Could I stop everything that I’ve done since ?  Not likely.  But, I am not full time.  That’s because my wife of 48 years is not happy about this but I don’t desire to let things go.  Lastly, I’m not ready to come out completely.   Could I go back to being cis, not likely.  At least not without bringing back extreme depression.

      Salutations Tristan! Welcome to Transpulse!   We're glad you're here. I'm going to stop short of chanting, "One of Us! One of Us!" Please avail yourself of the boards and the discord server. Join in the conversation, ask questions, participate as much as you're comfortable with. I think you'll find us an understanding and supportive community of folks who have, let's face it, been there.   I look forward to getting to know you!   Hugs!

      Here goes!   My name is Tristan and that maybe the first time I have officially introduced myself that way.  I was born in a body that I dont recognize on so many levels and, as yet, can't fully define.  I have had people try to define me for so many years that I have no idea what I really want for myself and that is part of the problem.   I hope that here I can find friendship and support as I puzzle through the jigsaw of identity that is me.    Right now I would like to use the pronouns he/him.

      I know what you mean. For the last 25 years, I thought of my feminine side as a "Michelle" but she only got a couple of chances to make an entrance into the wide world.  Now that I've decided to come out, I realized I would probably need a name that didn't also belong to my cousin.  The only names that felt right were variants of Michael, possibly that 51 years of using it biasing my thinking.  I have (for now) settled on Michaela, although I prefer the spelling "Mikhaila". Ultimately, I'd rather my name be easy to spell...

      we have to walk the line between painting a realistic picture to people who starts transition and also just being optimistic and giving hope to people. I love the model where you need to go see a gender therapist that has the job to be very real with you and tell everything about transition not being a miracle cure or something and helping people clear the confusion and on the other hand me personnaly just telling my story of things going far better then they were and not trying to put false shadows in the picture. We need the stories where things don't go too well to warn people but we also need the stories that are going well and that are giving hope. We need hope.

      My wife and I enjoy going out together.  No one thinks anything of it, and we don't get stared at.  The only time the question of whether or not we are a couple comes up is when we are asked if we want one bill or two.   My wife was a bit weirded out about being a lesbian through no choice of her own.  She considers herself a "lesbian by marriage".  But she has no reservations about us remaining a couple.  As far as she is concerned, my transition is part of the "for better or for worse" that she signed up for.  I am not sure I could have done the same had the positions been reversed, so I consider myself very lucky.   My wife likes to be bratty.  Sometimes when we are walking down the street and she spots someone looking disapprovingly at us, she will hold my hand, just to give them something to stare at.

      Thank you so much i do try my best   Sadly ive lost count on how many TS /TG  that have takend this step  (ie transiton + also in some cases HRT etc...  ) to fast and then crached (incl in here as well as otherwise online ) and its therefore i try to keep this aspect alive as much as i can  and this goes  for  fore all ages  young as well as even older then me  both MTF as well as  FTM  . Its VITAL that we that have transitioned   (with or without HRT or  and  SRS )  DONT  paint up this glorius life  and  happiness  /princess  / Prince life  without also mentioning the struggle and price many have to pay. + the medical risks of this as well as of course what we have gained  of course.   And i would also like to add  reg  our situation over here from  having to high  bounderies (they were  WAY to high )  to be alowed to  start the journey they have now lowerd  to much  and  therefore  we have this  problems  with   more and more  TG`s  /TS   being alowed HRT etc... to YOUNG when they get older  they regret  there  choice .   Also i must also add that of course  there are happy cases   of  (in this case  )  FTM  that have  gone back to female  but as i said  way more that havent been happy ending

      Welcome Lily.  I'm glad you decided to come here and that you thought it would help.  There are many kind people here to speak with and even vent every now and again, as life presents challenges.  I'm happy to hear you've been able to break through and speak to someone.  This is good.  Understandably your family knows you well and sees the change in you.  Talk to your therapist about how to address this subject with them.   All my best. Jani

      I couldent agree more  nor been able to express it  better  even as i tried  WELL spoken indeed
