Questions About Life After Transition
« on: August 07, 2018, 03:46:40 am »
What is daily life like after finally having finally transitioned? Does dysphoria sort of fade to the background? And will mental health improve drastically, especially if before transition, daily dysphoria was a main contributor to bad mental health? I guess what I am asking is, what are the thoughts and emotions you have when you wake up in the morning knowing your finally in the right body?

For myself, my gender dysphoria is a distant memory, completely gone from my mind. My dysphoria did not slowly fade into the background. It was suddenly and completely gone the minute I woke from genital surgery. Then there is the recovery period which is a challenge with pain medications and being so sore down there. Once your body  heals and you settle into a routine, life is remarkably normal. What we obsessed about before, is not not a problem. It is time to get on with the rest of our life.

It is important to plan for a life after transition. I see too many girls so completely focused on transition that they have little or no plans for their life after they finally feel proper. 

On a daily basis, I do carry water, but I have no need to chop wood.  :D
