Hey Arielle. Just made this account right after I saw the "Therapy Helped My Gender Dysphoria " Video. And I can say I understand a lot what he is saying. I also wanted to transition but I haven't/couldn't as I from a old school family upbring. Like women stay at home and have babies and that it kinda of family. But ya I had to deal with my own gender dysphoria my whole life almost. Well I notice more when I was in middle school and high school. As I remember wanted to duck tape my chest down as they kept growing. And I always wanted to be a male.To the point I dreamt about me being a man still to this day. I have accepted that I may never transition and at time about 3 month out the year I may get really depressed over it. But I do this to make my family happy. I never married or had children. As when I was a child I did get all that put in my head to be a good house wife and have children but at the same time my family also said I will never make anyone happy and all that.. So ya I wanted my own kids at a time but I also hate not having the male parts I wanted and the body I wanted. It was very confusing to say the least. Now I am 30 single and taking care of my father here and there. At time I do wish I could disappear and finally be myself but at the same time I did come to somewhat terms with the body I was given. I hope that everyone can have a outcome that make them happy and live their life to the fullest. I hope you have a great day Arielle and I will keep watching your videos no matter how much hate you get. You got a lifetime fan here. Have great day~
Hey, I'm a trans man. I have identified as male for 12 years, but only started taking testosterone (beginning a physical/medical transition) 2 years ago. For me, medical transition has relieved a lot of self-hate and anxiety. I could have saved myself a decade of pain if I had decided to do it earlier, but at the same time, I think I did need that time to work myself out.
If you ever want to talk to someone, I'm out here! Whatever your journey, I wish you a lot of luck and peace! I'm rooting for you!
