I have memories since I was four or five, but I also denied to myself that I needed to transition, all I needed was to cross-dress. That eventually no longer worked, and I started therapy. I have mentioned to my therapist a few times that I wonder if I am on the right path or not. She has said that it is perfectly normal to question yourself on this major of a change. In my case, it isn’t that I don’t feel like a woman, but it’s about the transition process itself – and how my age, the current political climate, etc, will all have an effect on it.
I had tried to look into transition about a decade earlier than I did with my current therapist. At that time (2003-ish), the therapist I saw then definitely didn’t see me as a candidate for transition, and our sessions ended after two or three times. Things have changed a fair amount since then.
