New but not new
« on: September 27, 2020, 05:29:59 pm »
Hello :)

Long long story...... I decided to transition MTF more than 10 years ago (at 28), I got tangled up in the UKs NHS system, with horrible doctors who refused to refer me, Doctors receptionists were just awful people who saw fit to publicly ridicule me, followed by depression and self loathing for quite some time, right into my early 30's.

I left the "trans" (still don't know how I feel about that word) community completely because i'm quite a passive/peaceful person, and because there were just so many shouty/angry militant crazy people popping up all over the place, which I found very threatening.

Now 40 (ish), i'm Bi, i'm in a polyamorous relationship, so I have a GF and a BF, both treat me as female or at least not male. It works for us, but they don't really understand my issues and I don't know anyone who does.

I've found it very hard to find support online, the forums I used to frequent are now all but dead, so hopefully now i'm on the right path x

Welcome Angelaney!

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.
