When i came out to my friends, it was because internally I’d resigned my will to live. This gave me incentive to come out and tell my closest friends, at the end of the day how could anyone make me feel any worse. My friends were so accepting it filled me with such energy to continue and actually make the change, things were moving forward. 3 years is far too long just to get diagnosed with something i already know i suffer with.
It annoys me because i know a ciswoman can walk straight into the doctors and ask for HRT just because she feels bloated or not feminine enough. I’m just as much a woman as she is, i just have different sex organs which is the main cause of my dysphoria. Looking down makes me physically ill. I would love to take matters into my own hands and take supplements Alexis,but my main concern isn’t the HRT, it’s the bottom surgery. Things are really tough mentally for me right now, however I’m looking into every avenue to get this shortened otherwise i really fear for my own sanity.
Well Lydia , you will have a very hard time if it’s only bottom surgery you are seeking . You won’t be able to go for surgery without being on HRT first and when you do see a therapist there is still a long waiting list before you go for surgery . The World Health Org are the ones who set the stand for our care and nations follow this somewhat . Taking some type of estergon will help relax the mind and calm you done on this . If you don’t what supplements then eat foods high in est such as soya sauce . When we relax our minds it helps with the dysphoria . Won’t fully take it away but it helps managing life a lot better .
I really wish there was more I could help you and give you a big hug .
