Hi! From the UK

    I’ve recently joined TGH from here in the UK. As my profile shows, I’m currently a 45-year old male who’s not entirely sure that ‘he’ should be a ‘he’.

    Many years ago now, I lived as a woman (Rachel) and I felt good about myself and life. Through a change of circumstances, I had to bring that life to a halt and have been fairly successful at keeping that side of me ‘underwraps’. But, as I’m learning from reading some of the posts here, deeply held feelings about who you are and who you should be don’t stay hidden forever and recently I’ve been more and more uncomfortable in my own skin and my own life.

    I’m hoping that exploring those feelings here and understanding how others have dealt with similar feelings will help me find the right path forward.

    Thank you to all of you who have already contributed to this site. Even just browsing the past posts show me that I’m not alone in this dilemma and that helps in so many ways.

      Hello Rachel. Welcome and we are here to help you. Only you can decide when the correct time to transition is. But you are right, gender dysphoria will not stay hidden forever and it only gets worse with time.  We all have been there.
