After living 50 plus years in the wrong body the first thing I did was tell my wife. Second was schedule the start of HRT. Third was telling my youngest daughter. Haven’t told my oldest yet about the HRT. The oldest knows about my gender dysphoria but isn’t yet aware of the hormone therapy.
I feel much more at peace and I guess time will tell how my spouse absorbs my transition. We’ve been married a long time and I’m pretty confident that she will remain by my side.
