I feel your anxiety, and I know the fear. It is a huge step to realize, and then accept, the reality that you are transgender. Some of us, myself being one, knew from a young age that we were transgender. Others didn’t realize it until they were at various stages of their lives and at an older age. I finally transitioned at retirement age but still work, now as a trans woman in an environment where I am accepted.
But, it has cost me. My circle of friends has greatly diminished, and certain family members have refused to acknowledge the person I truly am and have always been.
So you have to face the fact there may be sacrifices that must be made in order to come out as being a transgendered person…
We are here for you Jenny, as most of us have already ventured down this path, and are willing to help you in any way we can.
Wishing you the best, and big hugs,
Ms. Lauren M
