So here goes. I am 40 and I am trans. I have known it all my life. I have had financial, relationship and social problems due to how this has made me feel my whole life. When I finally embraced it a few months ago I cried and cried for a while. It was a good cry though and thanks to my dog I feel wonderful about being me when i am home. I hate going into the world and having to be what I am on the outside knowing it’s not right.
I have already started exercising and eating right for the body I want. But I must admit at 40 and being 6’1 this feels so daunting I am terrified to move forward. However I cannot live another 40 years in the prison of a body that doesn’t fit. I want to start hrt so much but I do not have insurance and even if I did most don’t pay for it anyway. That aside I need help in a lot of ways.
I need friends. I live in the South so of course the help is near non existent. I just don’t know where to begin. Money is an issue of course like it is for most of us but I know others have found help and I was hoping some of you lovely people could start helping me find my way. I don’t want handouts I just want friends and support with some advice about how to do this. I CANNOT live any longer like this it’s literally killing me.
I act completely different at home than I do when I am out and I cannot stand it. Any help in finding low cost services or just some friendly chat would be a major boon in my corner. Thank you all.
