When one faces the potential of significant life-altering possibilities, it does require a lot of thought and evaluation. There is no easy way and no short cuts. Many here have worked with therapists and they have found that to be very beneficial. However, it is very important to find someone with experience and interest in gender issues. That is the key. There are many good folks out that, but if they don’t have the specific experience, it probably won’t be very helpful.
I suggest that you complete your Profile page. It is a good starting point for people to get to understand you and your situation. The page can be updated at any time and will always be available, but regular threads will eventually wind up at the bottom of the pile.
You can also search for other members by clicking on Social in the menu and then Member Directory.
Glad you found your way here and I hope that you will feel well supported…
