I Am A Trans-woman Under Construction

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 806 People

    This Christmas I have more to be grateful

    for than I ever have in my life. From claiming my identities and becoming myself to learning more about who I am and what it means to be me, I have grown over the past year in ways that I could not have previously imagined. I have faced adversity on multiple levels and have...

    Thanksgiving 2013. A Time Of Reflection

    This year marks the one year anniversary of the week that I told most of my family that I'd be living openly as woman.... I know that many of us during the holidays have a difficult time dealing with family members who for what ever reason seem to go out of their way to cause...

    Sisterhood Knowing what I know now

    after all these years of learning of what it is like to be a true female I can honestly say it is an incredible feeling to feel free from the worries of not fitting in. I continue to read everyone's experiences because knowing what I know I can compare it with yours and god...

    While At Work.

    I have only started my transition this winter. I am developing faster than I was told to expect and because of that I now have A cup size breast on my chest. My chest was beginning to hurt in ways I did not understand and I went to my doctor. He told me I needed a bra and it...

    Alright, I figured this would be an appropriate

    thing to post on here. But it’s just a few basics of how to treat transgender people. Do: 1) Try not to make a big deal out of it. This is a generally good rule. If you find out someone’s trans, shrug and move on. If you slip up with someone’s pronouns, do what you...

    Guilt? In my experience I am not the victim

    but the villain. It is seen that I have made a lifestyle decision that will embarrass my nearest and dearest and that I am being very selfish and not considering them in any way. They feel that they are the victims and therefore I am guilty of being uncaring and self centred...

    I Am Who I Am

    I may be under construction but I am already the woman I always knew I should have been. The only thing I need is to get my physical out look to match my inner being.

    A story I shared with my Therapist at last

    week's session. It was during last week's session with her and we sat facing each other in her office and she asked me this question. "Have you ever regretted being a male...when you look back are there any regrets?" I told her "no, I never had any regrets presenting male." I...

    Who We Were Isn’t Who We Are!

    One of the hardest things about being transgender is leaving who we were behind in order to live as who we are. It’s uncomfortable. It’s scary. It’s unknown. We have lived for years as someone people have come to know. We are expected to behave in a way that matches up...

    Having My Friends to See the Woman Inside.

    The most important part of my transition is growing more comfortable with living internally as a woman; as the years roll by, I feel female when I think about myself and the world around me. It disturbed me for how long I instinctively addressed myself by a male name in my...
