Welcome to Susan's Place  :D

Dealing with dysphoria is an "experimental science" and is more about finding out what gives gender euphoria than meeting other people's expectations (such as "passing" in public).

I wear a dress for a little while in the evening, doing the washing up etc., and it makes a huge difference. One evening I "couldn't be bothered to get changed", and then felt miserable the rest of the day. The rest of the time I wear pink hoodies, feminine underwear, a blouse and faux leather leggings: so on the outside I look like a man who likes to wear colourful clothes, but I know that these are all women's clothes.

Find what works for you and don't be afraid to experiment: I never thought that "tucking" was for me until I tried it!

WOW I think you have hit the nail on the head there, everyone as touched what you have said and I think it would be the best option I have right now. Its like i have this need, this want to dress fully and the thoughts will not go away

I went on a makeover to be fully dressed for the first time ever and the lady said I just relaxed and was so chilled, I am normally very stressed. Going home and presenting male I felt very sad and depressed, the makeover I felt like me it was wonderful and was able to feel wonderful without judgement, but being home that same day felt like i have lost something. Really need to sort this out

thank you

One of my favorite depictions of this is a page on a webcomic: The Seasick Squid, on Buttersafe
