I don't know...

I'm almost finished my 54th year on this earth, and there are those who would think I transitioning late in life!  Well that's too bad, each and everyone of us have their own set of circumstances to deal with let alone beating each other up over what is right and what is wrong, what it means to transition, what makes a woman and what doesn't.  I'm a country girl, living in the middle of nowhere but that's no matter,  I like to wear make-up, I like to wear nice cloths, I like my hair to look nice, and I like to wear nice shoes as well.  When I'm slumming around I look like hell but that's OK too, god forbid you see me in the morning.  Notice there is no We in any of this.  I do things for meMy transition is for me and me alone.  Yes, as much as possible, I have taken care to ensure that my transition doesn't adversely affect others but if it does or has, guess what...  :-*

To say what women should or shouldn't do, wear or shouldn't wear, how they should act or shouldn't act is very silly, and self defeating.  I can't recall how many females there are on this earth but each one is different, I'm just one of millions.

I am a late transitioner myself, but I do tend to agree with all the posters here. But like Melissa said, changes will occur through our transition and sometimes they are unexpected, so I'll just take them as they come. Right now all that I'm trying to find is some comfort and peace within myself. And with the help of so many friends that I've made along my journey, my transition is going to be smooth.  :)

This has been a great discussion.  I echo what Steph said, I am an older TG (age 56) and I am doing this for me.  I don't want to hurt anyone else, but then I have to consider this is the only life/body I have - no one else can be me.

I like to wear make-up, dress feminine, have nice hair, etc.  For me I think it is because I denied myself these pleasures for so many years and I want to experience them with what little time I have left to live.

We each have our own path to follow, there is much we have in common, but we are each individuals with unique personaliities, likes and dislikes, etc.

I am just starting out on this journey and don't know how transition will go for me, it could be the best thing I have ever done or it could end up being something I am not expecting.  I don't know.  I am devoting myself to explore, learn, educate myself, seeking help and advise - and then go from there.  It seems to me that transition means different things to different people, and I can't presume to judge someones else's decisions, heck I have conflicts with my own decisions.

Molly I totally agree, I am aged 41 will be 42 in May this year and it has taken me this long to realise that I just cant go on anymore leading a lie. It is all about me, no one else.

I used to tell people I had a hormone problem (duh) now I really dont care and would gladly say to anyone who I really am (me).

As I have already posted many people already say I look female so what's the biggie, I guess it's kinda nice to have it sorted out in your head as well. I used to say that I was too old for change but have since had a re think.

Hey Sara,

It's probably one of the most important things for peace of mind. Many are still searching for that peace of mind. I'm personally very happy for you that you have found it and it's probably the thing I wish most for in those that haven't yet found it.
