Pre-t Confusion

Hi, I am 33 and have known I am a man since I was a kid. I was so jealous of my brother- I wanted desperately to be him. Everyone called me a tomboy but I wanted to just be a boy.
As I got older I identified as a lesbian as I adore women- but I am not one- or I shouldn't be.
My amazing partner supports me in wanting to transition but I'm scared how this could affect my step-children and my job- I'm a teacher.
I know I'm a straight man trapped in a woman's body and I have to sort it out. Typically I'm only average height and skinny with a pathetic build for a guy. Does anyone know if t will help this?
Just reaching out for support I suppose- I want to be the man I know I am.

Completion of bone maturation and termination of growth. This occurs indirectly via estradiol metabolites and hence more gradually in men than women.

It all about what you would like best for you but T can help with giving your body a more male look to make you maybe a little more comfortable, with your body that you maybe are looking for the first step is find infor on it yourself then go see a therapist if you want it. NOTE: Not all them things will affect you right away on T every guy is different, some will be faster and others slower to happen cause its about how your body handles it.
