so you’re new to this “journey”, eh? In one way or another, we all are. I’m a little older than you and although I’ve known that I’m one of the unfortunates to have been born in the wrong body since way back in the day, I too am fairly new to all this. I’ve been on hormones now for 2 years and I have never felt better in my life. I live in Los Angeles California and people here are very receptive to me. We (the LGBT crowd) are a huge force in society here. There are great supports here as well. Nobody is here to “judge” you in any way. You are who you are because god made you this way. You sound like a young woman so explore, be happy and enjoy life and this journey.
If you want someone to talk to you can talk to me anytime. I’ll help when I’m able. Feel free to email me at XXXX
