    Gender Euphoria is a psychological condition which consists of comfort or even joy when thinking about one’s true Gender identity, often accompanied by a strong desire to change one’s sex to better match their identity or to be called the correct gendered language.

    Euphoria can be focused upon bodily attributes or treatment from others.

    Hello fellow TGH-ians It’s time again for the monthly poll.
    One of the aspects of Gender Euphoria centers around the treatment from others, With this months poll i’d like to discuss just how it felt the first time you experienced it.

    For myself it was not from a Friend or Family member that was privy to my transition and was trying to be nice or understanding but rather a stranger in the supermarket who politely asked his two Sons to make way for “The Lady” as I approached them down the isle.
    It was all I could do to contain my elation until I had passed them but the feeling is one I’ll certainly never forget.
    So have you experienced it ? If so rate how it felt in our poll and feel free to tell your own Euphoric moment.
    I’ll keep the poll very simple with number 6 being Extreme Euphoric Utopia and with number One being mildly affirming.
    Your individual stories would paint a truer poll but lets see where it goes.
    As always your insights may help others that are following in your brave footsteps.

    This is obviously the last Poll for 2019 so I’d like to wish you all a safe and happy Holiday Season.
    Hugs and Love Cami xx

      Twice I’ve experienced that total acceptance that resulted in gender euphoria.  Both times were when I found myself in need of a restroom. 

      The first time I was a shopping mall.  This was before I had become completely honest with myself and admitted that what I was going through was simply cross-dressing for the sheer pleasure of the clothes.  Mind you, I’d previously made sure that I relieved myself before leaving home and limited my liquid intake most often to zero while out.  But somehow this time I was going to have to brave it and use the restroom.  Mind you I was wearing a very feminine white blouse, long sleeves, high neck line and a hidden packet covered by a lace trimmed overlay simulating an ascot and a skirt.  I had full make-up on complete with perfume.  I had just intended to stop by J C Penney’s to pick up some underwear and nylons.  I started to ignore in and simply drive home.  But as I headed for the parking lot it became apparent that if I attempted the 45 minute drive home, I’d likely end up wetting myself.  There was no way I’d brave the men’s room dressed as I was, so that left the women’s room.  I approached via the short hallway from the main mall with some trepidation.  I pause at the door way.  There was no one in the hall, so pushed the door open and stepped in, only to find a line of about five women waiting for stalls.  I stopped short and considered taking a chance on that 45 minute drive, but I’d already spent 10 minutes finding the restroom and the pressure was verging on painful.  So I took my place at the end of the line, hoping that like in the mall, everyone would be too wrapped up in themselves to really look at me.  Immediately in of me was a woman I took to be about 35 and in front of her, two girls probably 12 and 15.  The line inched forward and at last only the woman was in front of me and I was feeling pretty good as no one had really looked at me.  Then as the next stall opened up, the lady turned to me and said, “I’m just waiting for my daughters, you can take that stall.”  I nodded my thanks with a smile and did just that.  Sitting there on the commode I realized that a complete stranger had accepted me in a place that no man should be.

      The second time was shortly after I’d finally come to the realization that I was really transgendered.  I’d started HRT and electrolysis to get rid of my beard.  I’d started out with a one hour appointment and then when the time slot ahead of me opened up, I went to an hour and half.  If you’ve ever had electrolysis you know that it’s pretty intense.  So my electrologist suggested we take a break at 45 minutes and I could go to the restroom and give myself a bit of time to recover.  Well it turned out that I needed that restroom break. 

      After my experience in the mall, I felt confident that I could manage the restroom in an office building.  I was sure it would be sparsely used.  On entering the restroom, the first stall was in use, so I walked past it and left an empty stall in between.  I no more than latched the stall door and the door from the hall swung open and I heard two women walk in.  I sat down to relieve myself and heard a toilet flush on the far end.   Apparently there was a stall down there that had been in use.  Both stalls on either side of me filled up.  The lady in the first stall got through.  When I exited my stall there was one lady walking away from the sinks, two more at the sink and another came out of a stall behind me.  Torn as to what to do, I opted for the “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” approach and waited my turn at the sink.  One of the women stepped away from the sink, smiled and nodded at me as she helped herself to some paper towels.  I stepped up and washed me hands.  The lady next to me made eye contact with me in the mirror, smiled and nodded and another took her place.  Of five other women in the restroom not one even blinked at my presence.  All had looked me in the eye and simply accepted me as one of their own. 

      Gender euphoria.

      Hi all,

      Today was my first experience and I had an inner glow. My wife called me her punk rock princess!

      Maybe it was more than that? Tomorrow a friend of mine and I are going to Sephora to have make overs. This will be my first time for that and I will have to walk outside in femme. I’m nervous and excited at the same time!

      If all goes well I will have to post a pic!

      Tara

      I have not experienced gender euphoria as described by other here, but I am currently experiencing some feelings that I would describe as euphoric.

      I am spending some days at home alone. No hindrances of any type being Charrie for much of the duration. I won’t be going out, others won’t validate me, I certainly would not seamlessly pass should I interact with others away from my home. However just the freedom to express myself as Charlene. Thinking, feeling, meditating, praying, working around the apartment all as my female self has proven very powerful and deeply satisfying – euphoric if I may in my small extent of time being free as myself.

      Thank you Cami for asking. Happy holidays.

      Euphoria marks the moments of masculine identity that I have experienced.  In fact, masculine identity is the sine qua non of the greatest joy and comfort I have ever known.

      Those moments of validation, sometimes fleeting, were moments which I have sought instinctively my whole life, but did not fully realize was missing…the signs were all there.

      My success in athletics in particular was encouraged throughout my school years and thus my gender variance went “unnoticed” and rewarded at the same time, as tomboyishness.

      It was not until I happened to put a rolled up washcloth as a packer in my shorts (I did not even know there was a word for it at the time), that I felt an overpowering spiritual and emotional epiphany.  It released an ecstatic and powerful realization of my true nature.

      I feel whole with this realization.  Pursuing gender euphoria has been a greater guiding light than avoiding the misery of gender dysphoria.

      I try to cultivate joy intentionally, every day!

      I have not had that Euphoria moment. Just that warm feeling of contentment.

      There are so many times I have felt this way. The first was as a child being dressed as a fairy for a School play. I had a dress made and wore makeup and when I was ready I was adulated by my peers. I was young and didn’t see the true significance but it felt so right.

      In my teen years I was dressed  for a pageant. I looked at myself and had that warm glow. This time I knew the significance and realised what this meant. 

      That warm feeling continues to this day.

      Mine was two weeks ago. I was driving back from New Orleans, where I’d just spent three days as myself, and I’d just finished coming out to my family, who were awesomely accepting. I was talking to my brother, whom was the first to know, about a month prior. We were talking about my upcoming visit with them this month, where they will meet Tiff for the first time. He proceeded to tell me that he had explained what trans was to his kids, and that his daughter, who is seven, couldn’t wait to meet aunt Tiff. And it truly sunk in then. I’m actually doing this. I’m getting to finally live my lifelong dream. Got a long way to go, but there’s going to be family that will grow up knowing me as aunt tiff not uncle dude. It’s been 4 years since I’ve seen them, and they will only know the weird redhead 😁.  Earlier in the drive my mom had told me she had changed my name in her phone to tiff too. People that I’ve known my whole life, who have accepted me as a woman, after knowing me for 43 years as a man. People whose opinions I deeply care about, and who I’d feared I would lose, loving me for who I am. It makes me goddamn happy enough to cry.

       

      We put up with a lot of bad, haters and the like, but sometimes life is beautiful, and the joy and hope and good overpower the bad in majestic fashion. I danced on air for days after that.

      My heart is in the game

      Actually, I feel very fortunate to have felt Gender Euphoria on several occasions but there is one time that stands out above the others.

      I had just began to “come out” when a very good friend of mine, a cross country truck driver, called and needed my help. He was broke down on I-17 just south of Flagstaff and needed fan belts that were only available in Phoenix.I had not yet told my friend of my up coming SRS as I felt he would not handle the news well. So, I jumped in my pick up fully en femme, drove to Phoenix and bought the fan belts, then drove to his location on the freeway about 1.5 hours from me. My pick up has limo tinted windows and someone outside my truck cannot see into the truck. As I pulled up next to his semi on the side of the road, I rolled down my window and looked him dead in the eye as I stepped out of my truck in my high heeled boots. He was at a total loss for words!! I handed him the belts and he went to work installing them on his truck without a word spoken between us. Finally, I spoke up and told him what I am doing and he replied, ” I have loved you for who you are and not your gender. Just don’t think I’m taking you out on a date!!” I was so elated, on cloud nine, the endorphines ran thru my body!!!!

      Since that experience, we go out to dinner “as friends” just as we always did and I never hear a negative comment from him about trans or gay people. He has become much more educated and now accepts the fact that there is a third gender in our world.
