Thanks for this Danielle! Speaks a lot to the daily struggles that replaced the old ones: this voice telling that you aren't succeeding because you are not measuring up to other people and their "better" results.  Of course, logically, you can know that it isn't correct, but doesn't always keep the thought from emotionally tormenting you anyways.  At some point, I pulled away from a lot of the virtual community, because those comparison issues just weren't healthy for me, and I was weaker than I though, it terms of giving in to them.

Thanks for the reminder that I'm not alone in those feelings.

I will agree with Ellie and several here. There doesn't seem to be a typical transgender lifestyle. And yet I have found there are similarities as well. Not very long ago I didn't realize the similarities. Many times we each have thought we were alone in what we thought.

Zirconia mentioned puberty and it got worse. I definitely relate. And yet my choice right now might not be transition or death. At the same time I would not want a long life without the surgery I need.

The path is yours and you get to choose it.

You’re very welcome!  I understand.  I really do because I share those same struggles.  Sometimes I get so caught up in my emotions even while logically I know I’m only tormenting myself and can quit at any time.  Other times I get struck with real depression and quitting that is not so easy or always self-chosen.  Still, I tend to be my own worst enemy.

For example:

First to come out of the closet.
Then to transition.
Finally to live happy stealth or openly transsexual after srs?
Are those steps correct and complete?

Is this the life a transsexual has to strive for? What is with other ways to handle this? Are there alternatives?

--- End quote ---
We are all different. There is no typical way of life.
There are vast differances in appearence and mannerism at both ends at the spectrum and all in between.

I am openly transsexual. It is impossible to hide it från people I’ve known for 20+ years.

How to live your life? As yourself. Do what is right for YOU.
