Howdy!
« on: January 15, 2021, 08:34:37 pm »
Howdy everyone!

My name is Jennifer or Jenny or Jen. Lol my wife calls me all of them. My wife and I have been married for just over 12 years and have 2 young children. My wife has known part of my truth for pretty much our whole relationship as she new me as a crossdresser, this is we’re she started calling me by the name of Jenny as that is who I was when dressed. In the past year I had taken my “crossdressing” to more public lengths as I started keeping my nails polished all the time, started wearing full makeup, and wearing a little more obvious feminine clothing in public. My wife and my family thought that this was just to deal with stress and cover up rosacea on my face. While that was part of it it was not the whole truth. In the last month or so the stress from work and all of 2020 just grew too much. I knew I had to tell her but I could not bring myself to say it. On this past Monday I was off work and my wife could tell I was bothered by something but I wouldn’t say. Finally that night she cornered me while I was taking a shower and pleaded with me to tell her what was wrong. It took a few moments and I asked her to promise me not to look at me any different and she did. So in a shaking voice I finally said it aloud “I am transgender.” Her reaction was one of love and support. She told me she still loved me and was happy that I finally told her. We discussed how I knew and how I always questioned it when I was young. She asked if I had a plan and I told her no real plan but would like help and would like to speak to someone about it as this is the first time I have told anyone. We talked a lot over the next few days about it and we both agree that I will look for a therapist and look to start HRT and see where that takes us. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted and feel so much happier. I now hope to find more people in this community to talk with and share experiences and struggles. I’m so excited to be here and be with all of you.

Welcome to Susan's Place Jennifer! Although I live in Colorado now, I was born in Texas. It sounds like you're off to a great start, having a supportive spouse is a tremendous help in getting through this. How far you want to take it is up to you, and some people reach plateaus where they decide to stay for a while before continuing on down the road. No one here will judge you, and many of us have similar stories. Feel free to look around and ask questions. You can relax, you are among friends.

Love always -- Jessica Rose

Hi!


    Welcome a Jennifer!



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.
