I Am Transgender

    After several years of denial

    and self debate, I think I'm ready to take the next step. Hi everyone! For as long as I can remember I've felt more like a female then a male. It's been very confusing for me. I mean up until recently, I told myself that I was just a crossdresser. I always knew it was more...

    I am at work today dressed completely

    as a woman. Well I'm wearing all woman's clothing. Women's jeans and tee shirt. Women's socks and shoes(athletic). Also panties and pantyhose. So no one is going to know unless they look closely. The thing is I feel so alive. Probably more alive than I ever felt.

    Why is it so hard to come out?

    Why can't I just say the words to my family "I'm a woman and always have been."? Why do I even have to? It shouldn't be like that. A cisgendered person doesn't have to come out and say they're cis. So why should I have to say I'm trans? I wish I could just walk through my Dad's...

    I was diagnosed as being transgender at the age

    My Fear Of Being Outed

    I do have a fear of being outed. I am very careful. I know its my fault. I should just come out. I will get there. This is the year, but on my terms. The shame is me feeling comfortable sharing with people all over the world, but not my family. I am afraid, but that fear is...

    Crossing A Threshold

    Very quietly last week I crossed a threshold. I was at my therapist’s office and we were discussing my transition.  As we spoke, I became quiet and withdrew into myself.  I could see a doorway and I was on one side of an open door, staring through into another room.  As I...

    I grew up in a fairly normal childhood. I had two parents who loved me. Ever since I was little I loved to dress up as a girl. I would wear my mother's clothing any time I could. I just liked looking and acting like a girl. I secretly wished I could be a girl, but I never...

    There have been few instances where,

    out of the blue, it hit me how much I've changed. I looked back at how I was months earlier and noticed that I felt different inside. It must have been evident because people on the outside treat me as a woman. When I first went out in public I vowed that I was going to live...

    It's getting to the point

    that whenever I get dressed in my day -to-day boy clothes, it feels like a part of me dies a little. I now begin most every day in quiet reflection of the choices that I've made and the ones not yet faced.
