Hi Miranda. Wow, you’ve started a journey as scary as a hobbit with a ring. I’m glad you’re starting with a therapist. There is a great clinic in Chicago to get medications. I’m sure you’re therapist will hook you up if that is the true path. I started that path many years ago. It brought about changes that scared me and completed me. Now I live as the woman I knew I was as a little girl. That was a time of zero acceptance. Now the internet and social media are in your hand to help in ways I wish I had. I wouldn’t have waited so long. Find support in people who know the real you cuz you might loose those who know you now. There is too much to say for now.
