Reply To: My experiences and thoughts about transitioning at 40

Dana Munson

Hello, Jennifer, and welcome to TGH! It’s not at all unusual to have “feminine” desires and to still be conflicted as to whether one is merely an odd man or a woman trying to break free. In my own way, I fought that battle for a couple or three decades. Spoiler alert: I finally sided with my femme instincts. Anyway, you may not need a psychiatrist to deal with your inclinations toward womanhood. Rather, you might benefit from a therapist with experience in (trans)gender issues. I say this because psychiatrists generally are here to help diagnose and treat real mental disorders. Identifying as a possibly trans-person is NOT considered a mental disorder by the AMA (although it was, many years ago). A good, experienced therapist can help you work through a variety of mental conflicts and uncertainties.
