Hey,

Reintroducing myself feels like the right place to start. I was once quite active here, and I thought I'd gotten to a point where I could move on from the transition part of my life. I did too. Then COVID hit.

I had a breakdown in April. The stress of the pandemic, work, and this constant reminder hanging off of me of my male past caused me to confront said reminder. I thus came to the conclusion I've got one more step to take in my transition. I'm afraid, and looking for people who understand what I'm going through. While I'm blessed with wonderful friends they're not going through any of this transition stuff, and I'm not comfortable being unfiltered with them on this subject. Which has lead to my return.

If a man can make you smile,
even if you don't want to,
then you love him.

Welcome back Misato!

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 your 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.

Hiya :)

At 40 (+ a bit), i've realised that friends come and go, jobs come and go, family eventually go  :icon_cry:

The only constant throughout your life is YOU, and you need to do what is right for you x

Hi Misato! Welcome back, i am new but can relate to your story !


Hey,

I never left the house very often for the two years running up to covid due to depression and other problems. Now that my psychological state is on the mend i want to go out and meet new people and practise my ability to pass in public (if it exists). Not to mention things like hairdressers, beauticians etc ! So i havent even had my first trip to the hairdressers yet as a woman !

But the online trans communities are strong all over the internet , and we are all here for one another - and its working fine for me ! i hope you get what you need here and feel better soon!
