Reply To: How Do You Know if You Are Trans?


A bit late to this party….

I will be 50 later this year. Since telling my wife (partner of over 20 years) about my lifelong desire to dress like a girl I’ve been suffering from increased uncontrollable dysphoria. It seems like I’ve gone from occasional CD with a bit of a lingerie fetish, to almost certain trans girl, going to the shops fully dressed, in the space of 2 months.

I read that this is common; that when you admit/come out to yourself it frees up your mind, gives you space to think (almost for the first time).

Now I can’t help but think about it all the time, I can’t imagine buying boy clothes ever again, I’ve been researching hair removal for m body and face, and I’m talking to a gender therapist about the next steps.
It’s certainly a rollercoaster ride.

Hope you’re all staying safe xx
