I'm back...


Hello again...
I think it's just over a year since I was last here. There seems to be a definite pattern for me - things will lie dormant for 12-15 months, and then dysphoria and everything else kicks back in in a massive way for around 3 months or so  :-\
Although over the past however long it's been, if I've stopped and thought about it, (which I have), it's not like I don't feel like I'm not transgender anymore, or like I've managed to re-repress it (is that a word?) It's more like "Yep, that's still there... Okey doke, on with my day then," and that's been enough, no drive or desire to do anything about it further.
It's strange though, it feels kind of different this time around now it's kicked in again. In previous iterations it's felt more like, "I wish I was like this, but I'm not, and that's rubbish." This time around, there's a much greater sense of, "I AM this, underneath everything, but nature/chromosomes/society means that I'm the only one who's aware of it." I guess in a simpler way of explaining, before I predominantly felt like a boy who wanted to be a girl, now I feel the majority of the time like a girl who appears to the world to be a boy. A subtle difference I know, but I thought it interesting that there was one.
Anyway, sorry for the ramble! Just thought I'd re-introduce myself :)

Thank you all, it's good to be back :)
I see a lot of familiar faces and some new ones too. It's amazing how far so many people have come in their journeys in the time I was away!
