... in many ways :-)
My name is Tiffanie. I am in my mid 40s, and although I've known I am a girl my entire life I have barely begun the process of accepting myself. I have done a few things over the past couple of years to alter my appearance slightly ... grown my hair long, got both ears twice, but am barely now seeking counseling and taking true steps to become female.
I had my first laser session recently to remove my dark and heavy facial hair ... a rather intense experience. I hope to get on hormones by the end of the year.
My wife is incredible. She has tolerated my increasing desire to present myself in a more feminine manner. Only recently did I tell her how deep this desire is and the fact that I truly am a woman and want to do everything I can to match my body to my brain. It must be horribly difficult for her, but she says she will stay by my side.
I am looking forward to making new friends and being a part of this community. I have so much to learn and such a long path to travel.
Sorry ... Ditsy blonde will stop rambling now ;-)
LOL ... love the joke.
I am not getting my hopes up that everything will be perfect, or even easy ... that would be a touch naive. I am willing to take my transition slowly (not that I ever jump into anything quickly) if it will increase the odds of my wife staying.
Welcome & glad you joined us!!!
