Reply To: How/when to “come out”


Hi.  I am 39 with a wife and 3 kids and have questioned my gender all my life and am looking to get therapy.

Lately I have felt depressed that I can’t express myself.  I feel like a balloon with air continously going in and if I don’t let it out it will pop. I am currently growing my hair out and am loving it.

My question to those who have/had a significant other and/or kids…when did you tell them (before/after therapy) and how did you tell them?

Seeking advice so my balloon doesn’t pop!



My wife has know about my increasing crossdressing for years. I decided it was time to talk with someone about whether I may really be trans. I scheduled my first appointment and then told my wife I scheduled the appointment.

It came as a bit of a shock to her that I was questioning that seriously and it was a rough night for her when I told her. She does seem to be processing it well and seems to be engaged and willing to help me work through the journey. I think that’s about as good as can be expected.
