Hello all, just a brief introduction here.  late 50's amab that's just accepting that i'm trans.  Started working with a therapist a few weeks ago and recently came out to my immediate family.  That went better than anticipated but things are still unsettled with my wife.  my therapist suggested i find community so i'm hoping to slowly spread my wings and learn from others here.

Melissa:

Glad to have you with us and I hope that being here will be helpful as your journey continues.

I say Journey very particularly because understanding our gender identity issues is not the work of a minute. It’s good that you are working with a therapist. I often suggest this as it is very difficult to work through things on our own. One thing that does make a difference is having a therapist with some experience in gender issues as not everyone has this background.

I would also do some searching for support groups as a number of LGBT organization started doing them online during the pandemic. A number have continued as they found that it was a great way to connect with those who are traditionally underserved as a function of where they live, their socio-economic status, etc. Anyway, we are social creatures and we benefit from time spent with our peers.

You can check our Member Directory to see if any other members live in your area. That can be a great way to catch up on what’s happening in your area. Click on Social in the menu and then Member Directory.

Finally, please complete your Profile page. It goes a long way towards helping other members understand your situation, what’s going well, what’s difficult, etc. Also, other topics such as what we do for a living, where we’ve been, our outside activities, etc. can serve as conversation starters. You can also update your page at any point in the future as things change.
