    I was diagnosed as being transgender at the age

    of 9, and consequently allowed to wear girls clothes around the house and garden, but my mother always said that I would have to wait until I got older before she would allow me to go out in girls things, eg dresses, but that was until one very hot summers day, we were going to...

    and they said there was only one anomaly. This is that prolactin levels should be 0-320 but my levels were 350. Does anyone know if this will affect their willingness to actually put me on hormones or let me go through with transitioning? Just a bit confused as I haven't been...

    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.
