    Yesterday morning, I found myself with a

    handful of sleeping pills and seriously considering taking all of them. I know with my weight and their low dosage I would need around 53 to be lethal but eating the whole bottle seemed almost too tempting. I didn't though and decided it was time to do something. So instead I...

    I was recently asked by another EP member

    if I was a cross dresser or transgendered. . .even though it clearly states on my profile that I am transgendered I guess I can understand why I was asked the question as many cross dressers also identify themselves as trans. So to be clear. . .I consider myself a non-op...

    I am tired of people mistaking Gender Identity

    with Sexual Orientation together These are two very different issues, just because I am an MtF, doesnt mean I like males sexually, same with FtMs. I may have been born a boy, yet I have always felt female, I hate being called a man, that is very disrespecting. The Gender Surgery...

    I've been exploring my gender identity recently

    I am a male born inside of a female body.

    In-prisoned. Have you ever felt that way? Imagine yourself trapped inside a cage and the bars are impossible to break. You know this but you still scratch away at the bars hoping to be free someday. That's how I feel. My body is a cage and I wish to be free from it. But I am...

    I came out to my step dad this morning.

    While he admits being out of his element, he told me how touched he is I trust him enough to tell him. How proud he is of me for figuring out who I am because it takes courage to look inside and find yourself whether it's gender exploration or other personal exploration. He has...

    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. ♥
