Nice to get a warm welcome.
« on: May 23, 2020, 05:53:51 am »
Hi Everyone

My name is not Sarah, but needed to choose a name away from my real life as a 48 yr old man in Queensland, Australia. I have been well within the realm of gender dysphoria for as long as i can remember. Even as low as stealing girls clothes of washing lines, trying on my mothers clothes, putting socks in a bra, sleeping with a pillow up my pyjamas pretending i was pregnant.

I always wondered what it would be like to have breasts and to be a girl.

 I was always more  interested in what it would be like to be the girl in the clothes that i met on a night out, rather than me whos going to be the guy who was going to have sex with her.

Its has been an on and off relationship, as where i was brought up, been different  was not an option, regardless of that i wish i could of done something sooner.

I am now in a loving marriage and have an appointment with the GP to start the journey from male to female HRT.

I just want know about if your experiences were positive or negative so i can get a general idea.

I will then tell you more

Love and best wishes

Sarah xxx

Hello...I am also a Sarah who is not a Sarah in real life.

In fact, in addition to our pen names, we share a lot in terms of experiences and where we are in life (although I have never been married). I have dealt with transgender inklings since childhood.

I made the decision to transition in October 2018 as you can see in my timeline below. Everyone’s experiences are different but at least for me, my transition has gone a lot better than I expected in terms of the coming out process. Just as importantly, I am so much more mentally at peace with myself, and many of my friends and family have remarked, “You seem so much happier!” Yes - ‘tis true!

Anyway, you have chosen to go see a therapist which is a most excellent choice at this stage. Take the time to have some really good discussions with your therapist.

I’m sure you will get an official welcome shortly from the moderators, but I too wish you a welcome as well.

Welcome aboard, Ms. Stevenson.

I began my transition 18 years ago with strong resistance from my late wife.
My wife passed 16 years ago, and I had my surgery 2 months ago at age 69.

I have never been more comfortable in my life.

I hope all goes well with you.

I hope you'll share your experience with the GP.
Give me ambiguity... or give me something else.

Hi!

Welcome Sarah!


Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Thanks everyone for your reply's. Its nice to know that i can ask questions and talk without been judged.

There are so many things i want to ask, but obviously you have other things to do than answer all my millions of queries.

Going to have a good look around first as the answers for half my questions will have probably been answered.

Thank you again and will hopefully talk to some of you very soon.

Have a lovely day/night/evening or mornig, wherever you may be.

Lots of love.

Sarah
