You are absolutely correct in using the term “journey”. It is not the work of a minute. However, as many here will tell you, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I hope that your time here proves to be helpful.
It looks like you have the elements pretty well covered. The only thing I would say is that when you look for a therapist, finding one with experience with gender issues makes a big difference.
Thanks for completing your Profile page! I usually have to remind people to do that, but it really does have value. It helps other members to understand your situation and you can update it at any time as things change.
I am ecstatic that I have found a transgender counsellor local to me and am in process of arranging an appointment with her. Do I guess my journey is moving forward?
From my short time here I have found people to be friendly and approachable which is a big relief in my mind.
Thank You x
