Hi everyone my name is Donni. Ive been Transgendered even before i knew what the word meant. I remember growing up and feeling like i was different....but i never really thought my internal self identity would end me up to where i am today as a MtF Transvestite. Until i met my wife i had never told a soul about who i really was, and even then 12 years ago i didn't know much about where this feminine part of me would take me. I ve struggled in the past with self acceptance and went through a long period of denial and tried to "Fix" myself by trying to purge the part of me that was screaming to get out. After hitting bottom emotionally and exhausted of being ashamed, i am now coming to a part of my life where i am starting to become more comfortable with accepting myself as Transgender.
Last year, i started seeing a therapist. After getting all that i needed to talk about off my chest, she recomended that i should start thinking about transitioning my life. TRANSITION...the word scares me, i dont know of any other context of this word besides the path that many other Transgendered people take towards Transexual Identities....Im not a woman, I dont have dysphoria about my body (other than unwanted body hair), so for me i am struggling with what TRANSITION means to me in my life...I dont understand any of the medical aspects of HRT as pertaining to people who dont want to fully transition. Though i have read on various sites about some of us who choose just to block the "T" side of things? is this even possible....i have so many questions about the right path for me and all of the resources that i find are geared toward transsexualism. I get frustrated finding only very few people who identify as i do....even among the Trans community.
Is PE the right place for me being a Transvestite?
Being closeted for so long and now coming out to the world has opened this whole new set of social challenges for my wife and i. She supports me and is my number one fan thus far so i consider my self very fortunate. And we are making strides within our relationship and both of our confidence in being a Transgendered couple have us to the point where we are trying to make friends locally so we have a support circle of friends we can be ourselves around.
So i have lots a questions about just normal life stuff after "Everybody Knows..."
