    Every day i tell myself it will be okay.

    .. it never is. My anxiety, my thoughts, my body.. nothing is the way it should be. I feel alone because nobody around me wants to see me change. I want to feel free, feel comfortable, feel like the man i was born to be. But i can't.. Taking testosterone gave me worse anxiety...

    I am 39, in a relationship

    for 20 years, have three teenage daughters and have hated being male for as long as I can remember. I used to (still do sometimes) pray / wish every night that I would wake up as a girl / woman. I have never aspired to being conventionally beautiful - just a plain Jane. No one...

    Awful Times

    I'm having such a hard time with my dysphoria today. My partner isn't answering his phone and I was only correctly gendered once this week. Is anyone around to talk? I'm not feeling well at all.

    I didn't have a name

    for it until a few years ago when society started talking more and were willing to listen to anyone who is transgender or going through a trans experience. I had always just thought "I don't feel right in my body" or "What I am inside versus what people expect of me physically...

    My Body Lies To Me

    I am biologically female, but I experience daily distress about my gender.  I feel as if my body lies to me, because in my mind I don't have a gender.  I am not a woman, and I am not a man.  I live outside the gender binary.  Forever trapped in this lie...
