Wondering the correlation between the two.


Recommended Posts

I have been wondering this ever since I realized that I am a girl.  Before the realization I had dreams were I could barely walk, to get moving I would have to push off something to start. This was a common theme in my dreams. No matter what type of dream the common thing was barely walking.


However ever since my revelation that I am really a girl. I have not had any of these types of dreams. It is almost like my being barely able to walk was a sign that my mind was finally healed by my revelation?

I've had quite a bit of dreams where I either cannot walk or can only walk very slowly. Usually this is when I am dreaming about crossing the street or someone chasing me. I don't remember the last time I had a dream like this. It might have been a few years ago or a few months ago. I've been on hormones for 2 years and wanted to transition for at least a decade before I finally did. I have no idea if my dreams of being unable to walk have anything to do with my gender dysphoria and have never thought about it.

Sounds to me like subconsciously healing is taking place.  Internal acceptance if you will.  

JMO but I see that as a good thing.

I understand this completely. I used to always refer myself as “we” like I would say in my mind “we are going to the store”. But like talking to myself. Every since I transitioned and truly discovered that I’m Non-binary and changed my name to Mason. That’s saying “we” has stopped in my head.

I just woke up from a dream where I could only walk slowly so these dreams have not ended for me. I'm still presenting as male and have other issues that are not resolved yet.

There could be a connection.  Dreams where you can't move (or can move only slowly) are fairly common. One possible explanation is that the body is more or less "turned off" during sleep, and in some dreams, you become aware that your body isn't responding to your brain's signals.


Most people don't have such dreams consistently, as far as I know.  I think in your case, there just might be a connection. Only time can tell!

      Hi Jamie,   Welcome to TransPulse. Thank you for your service. My immediate family and very close friends are all that know about me as well.   Hugs, Mike

      Good Friday morning    I get a day off today, well sort of.  House work, grocery store, rain coming later.  Tomorrow evening our son is coming for a short visit. He has to be in Atlanta Tuesday so he is coming here first.     I had a nice talk with my therapist yesterday.  We discussed a number of things.  She indicated she could tell I was doing better than the last time we spoke, much happier and more outgoing.   my wife hard me mentioning a diagnosis of severe depressive disorder.  When we ended the session, my wife says to me would I be happier if I was fully out.  I’m thinking where is this coming from.  Turns out she heard severe depressive disorder I thought I was having serious problems.  No, that was my original diagnosis from when I first saw my doctor and first therapist about being depressed and needing help.  But knowing how she feels, I felt very loved that she would express that to me and say that I should just be out if that’s what I needed.  Just talking about this is bringing tears of happiness .   Cant see right now so I’ll be back later.   hugs   Willow

      I found that if I run my mouse across the whole line at once, it sounds like a major accident/spill in a restaurant kitchen 😁

      Hi @Kelli  nice to meet you and Welcome!   I think Questioning is natural, and for me (and mostly likely most of us here) it was really a first step of the process.  It might be the end point, or just the beginning of your journey. I agree with @Susan R and @Gabriel on the importance of therapy to be able to truly explore your feelings and identity in an open and non-judgemental environment.  Therapy has been an amazing experience in self-acceptance for me. Also, my experience from my time here in the Forum, is as I read more and more from other Members, it was easy to make a connection to some of our common shared experiences.  That was very helpful for me to start to connect the dots. Wishing you all the best, and hope to hear more from you❣️   Deep breaths ... one step at a time

      Good luck with that Mira.  Hopefully the therapies you mention will help you find good sleep.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Some good information there.  I wear Soma all the time .  I like their softness and side coverage.  But admittedly I also have the falling straps issue.   I’ve considered Third Love and Pepper but since I’m in a growth phase I’m going to hold off.   Willow

      I didn't come out at work and applaud you for doing so. I know acceptance of me would not happen in my day. I know it is hard but I am pleased you are doing it and braving it to know YOU are the reason things ARE changing and the next generation will thank you pioneer women and I'm not talking cooking. I admire you. I have been on HRT for 5 months and my internal pains continue to stew and tears come so much quicker but even now I am still such a rookie that you probably don't need to think of that any longer. You are making great progress. Be happy and keep doing what you are doing because whether you notice it or not you've come a LONG way and i am so proud of you.

      **Update** We now have a target to shoot at in trying to deal with the fatigue.  Last Saturday I went in for a sleep study and I have been diagnosed with severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Periodic Leg Movement Disorder.  There are also signs of Restless Leg Syndrome.  They recorded an average of 42 apnea/hypopnea events and hour and 30 involuntary leg movements per hour.  The data showed an overall arousal index of 59 times an hour and a sleep efficiency of 54%.  They are pretty sure that this is a major factor in the my fatigue.   I am being referred to the Sleep apnea/C-PAP clinic to get set up with a C-PAP machine, and they may consider putting me on medication for the PLMD/RLS.  I guess time will tell if the fatigue gets better once I begin the C-PAP therapy.  They also said that the sleep apnea is likely contributing to my high blood pressure that is difficult to control with medication, and may also be a factor in my insomnia and weight issues.   I will post another update after I have been on the treatment.

      @ElizabethStarThis is one of my biggest worries about coming out at work. I'm sure it's deeply painful for you that some your co-workers aren't creating the emotionally supportive space for you. I do hope you have other co-workers who do accept you and a supportive HR department if it comes to that. I'm early in my transition and not out to anyone in my office yet, but I will need to do something because my physical changes will soon be less subtle and more obvious and that will bring the inevitable questions. My colleagues (and clients!) may have harmful views of transgender people as well and I'm sensing that I may face a similar situation to yours in the future. I work in a very small agency that's very prone to gossip so I'm fearful of what coming out will be like.   Love, ~Audrey.

      Hi @Tyler1 welcome to TransPulse. I empathize with you about the emotional eating, it is something I struggle with as well when I'm feeling anxious or depressed. You are doing one of the very best things right now by reaching out and connecting with a community who can relate to you through shared experience. You'll find everyone here extremely supportive! I'm pretty early in my transition, and I do experience a lot of dysphoria from things about myself that I would like to be much different than they are now. When I realize that's happening, I strive to change my thoughts in that moment to something about myself that fills me with hope and confidence instead. I find that changing my thinking often changes my feelings, which in turn helps reduce the chance I'll start eating emotionally. What are some things about your transition that bring you hope and confidence? Love, ~Audrey.

      Hello @Tyler1, allthough i'm not on hormones yet, depression has always be constant partner of me. Eating has alway be a problem, either binge eating or nothing at all. Following things helped me: - trying new recipes, not ordering food and always cook (mostly low carb). - going outside on a daily basis, even if it's just 15 mins - routine - yoga in the morning and some sport, even if it's just crunches and stuff at home - taking a bath - favourite games, movies and tv shows All in all, mostly selfcare. It's so important for me, i learned.   Take good care of yourself and kepp in mind that you are unique, loveable and precious the way you are.

      Hi Vivienne, it was an interseting video documentary, if a bit dated for me, Aiden and Michelle were at very different stages of their journey's. I am glad you found something that helped you to talk and connect to your siblings. This is wonderful!

      Well for me, my weight loss was fueled by a couple of things:   1) What Kind of Woman Are You? I mean sure, man in your case but the principle is the same. Is Jackie fat? No she is not. That got me into the gym. The fact that I wanted to be in the best shape of my life for surgery was also a motivator, but secondary to the idea that this is my body and I'm taking steps to make it something I feel comfortable living in.   2) Dysphoria. Once I started addressing my dysphoria, I went all-in. I wanted to look a certain way and I started doing everything in my power to make that happen. Every. Day. That means gym time and watching my diet.   For me it was absolutely about taking the time every day to lose weight. Side benefits included exercises to round my butt out (you can do the same thing, but build your upper body/chest) and narrow my waist. Exercise also helps with depression, which in turn helps you knock off the emotional eating. Also a vicious cycle, but a more positive one.   I hope some of that helps.   Hugs!

      I had the same problem for a while and I ended up having to just wear sports bras for a while or I did have one racer back.  I looked at third love several times and it looks like they have very nice bras. I would also try soma if they have one near you. They are super comfortable and the associates were happy to help.
