    So I posted here a while ago.

    Just an update. I have canceled my operation date. I don't think I'm ready yet. I know who I am. I know I was born in the wrong body. But I'm not ready to change the body I was born in because the thought of operation scares the living **** out of me.

    Hi. I'm 19. I am a transgender.

    I am not yet in the process of getting the operation but I am starting to live my life as a boy. I have lost my real parents because of this but I don't care. I know that sounds nasty but it means that I don't have to pretend to be something that I'm not. I am who I am. Take me...

    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. ♥

    So I am on day 11 of wearing nothing

    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!!
