Finding a trangender counselor and joining TGH are important steps to help you on your journey. I believe it’s especially important to befriend and talk to other girls. There will be a lot of ups and downs on your journey. Having a network of friends can make things a lot easier. The girls here on TGH will be happy to lend an ear whenever you want to chat. I would encourage you to also seek friends that are local to you – that you can meet face to face. Socializing with other trans women fills a gap that can’t be filled online. The member directory can help with that. There may also be some LGBTQ support groups near you that would be worth contacting.
Best of luck on your journey.
