Hello everyone! My name is Brooke! I’m 36, I’m a transgender woman! It feels good to say all of that. I guess I’ve started my journey around a couple years ago. Can’t say I ever liked how I looked in pictures until I used that snapchat gender filter. It was an odd experience for me, to realize that what I didn’t like was the gender staring back at me in the mirror. I don’t expect that I’ll ever look the way I did in the filter (and not sure if I’d want to to be honest lol). I think I would say that I accepted being a trans woman sometime between March and May. Since then I’ve been struggling with family–I’m married–so there are complications with that. I’m pre-everything, and not sure if I will transition or not but I want to. I don’t know that I could convince myself that I didn’t want to.
I’m at a point where I wish I had my own space to experiment more, order clothes, learn make up, start voice training, etc. I think finding a therapist would be beneficial and I would like to consider HRT. But I also think meeting others and making some friends would also be helpful. I have started to respond to surveys with being a transgender woman, or where I can respond privately I identify as female/transgender woman.
I think that’s all for me! Sorry if this is a bit much for an intro! (Proceeds to write a book after this…)
Oh, I guess I could add some other stuff more about myself! I like playing MMORPGs (FFXI, FFXIV), a bit of a nintendo fan. This sounds weird but I feel like I’m addicted to running servers. I don’t really have any users at this point due to lack of stability and time to sink into running them. I have a few private servers that I’ve been running I think the most up to date server is my minecraft server. I’m a programmer at a health insurance company. In real life I like long walks in the woods–well or short walks too–I’m interested in photography as a hobby (nature mostly). I used to love bicycling but I’m quite out of shape at this point. Ok that’s all for me! (For real this time!) Thanks for reading!
