Marcy - My crossdressing Journey


Hello my name is Marcy
I’ve been crossdressing since I was 12 years old but I’ve always been forced to keep it in the closet because of family pressures.

For the past seven years since my wife passed I have been dressing more and more experimenting with make up and going out in public fully dressed.

I wanted to share how I love your website and the resources here and being able to interact in a safe manner with other crossdressers and transgender people.

I love to feel feminine but I’ve always been in conflict with myself because of external pressures from friends and family and my community.

I am really growing tired of living with this conflict and would love to more fully be able to live into my feminine personna.

Could you offer me any helpful resources to help me with this transition and to come to peace with my feminine self.

 Ever since I was 12 years old I always felt more like a girl than a boy and would experiment wearing my mothers bridal clothes. I’m tired of trying to be masculine and make believe that I am this manly man.

I much prefer my feminine personna and being out in public dressed as a female feel so much more natural and calming.

My counselor says I have developed crossdressing as a coping mechanism which is fine but it can also be fully embraced as a new lifestyle if I strategically take the steps to plan to make this happen with the least amount of damage to my personal life.

I’ve been wrestling with this for years.  I simply need direction on how to live in to my femininity without damaging all my relationships with friends and family.

Thank you for listening.
