Glad to have you with us! I hope that it will be useful and enjoyable being here.
Your situation is replicated across many members here. As the saying goes: “You’re not the first, and you won’t be the last.”. In a way, it is a bit of the Luck of the Draw and some situations are better and some are worse. It becomes a question of how to go about dealing with what you have. Also, while there are some similarities in the paths for each of us, they are all different. There are so many variables that make each of our lives unique.
Many members here have been helped by working with a therapist. Since we are immersed in our own situations, it is very difficult to maintain some degree of objectivity. What a therapist can do is help to keep you focused on the issues that need to be considered and also help to understand what’s going on. These are all uncharted waters and it is a situation where our fears and worries can easily take over and paralyze us. If that happens, all progress comes to a halt. However, the choice of therapist is important as not everyone has experience in gender issues. That is a key factor in finding someone to work with.
