    For the first time since coming out,

    I had to use the public bathroom @_@. The other night I went out with my friends to the mall, and then had dinner at the golden corral, which is where I started feeling the inner urge. My friend said she'd go in with me, but I stood in front of the two bathrooms; frozen...

    I am currently looking forward to the day

    when I can finally be me, but I have a question or two, because a lot of the TG Vloggers I've seen have spent a year or two living as the "Opposite" sex, but this normally just equates to clothing changes, and maybe breast forms. But to someone like me, who isn't interested in...

    I used to be transgender

    when I was in my teens. Some years ago, I started going through surgeries and procedures, including gender reassignment, to become a girl. And ever since, I feel more alive. ♥

    Well I have come a long way over the last few

    days, I finally told my parents I was transgender and want to make the transition to a woman. They were both very calm and knew about my crossdressing from when my Mum caught me in a dress and her underwear. There was a lot of tears but I felt so good being open with them, they...

    My grandma bought me a very expensive necklace.

    Its very girly, and I told her in advance not to buy me anything for a girl. When I opened it, I almost cried, 'cause I will never wear it. Makes me feel a little selfish, but I don't her not to buy me anything for a girl........... (alyx)

    How do you explain to someone what you can't

    as who I am. I'm not going to fight it anymore, in fact, I love it :) Since I was little, I always noticed differences between me and other boys, but I pretended not to notice... As I got older, that gap between me and other boys widened. I could only find myself relating to...

    Sometimes, the pain becomes almost unbearable.

    The feeling of being in the wrong body, of having to present myself wrong, of having the wrong parts, of just being completely wrong, becomes overpowering. It all sometimes just makes me feel physical pain, like in my tummy, and makes me feel emotional pain, similar to the...

    I feel like I need to finally take the first

    step to transitioning. I have been afraid to do anything mostly because Ive been afraid what others may think but I need to think about me for once. Id love to talk to other trans individuals and make some friends maybe get some advice from others.

    I recently started wearing bras

    that would give me the appearance of having breasts, and my dysphoria has gotten worse because it felt so fake: I felt MORE like a male because I was wearing unrealistic make-shift "breast forms" (they were socks stuffed in a 40B sized bra, actually.) For a bit, it caused much...

    but women's clothes. Even though no one knows I am wearing women's clothes, as clothing is very gender neutral looking, It still has me feeling so wonderful, better than I ever have. But I am very fearful of how my wife will feel, not as good as I do needless to say!!
