    Hi, my name is Robyn, I am from Texas and proud to be a southern gal! I’m working on coming out and still very afraid of what I might loose and if I will gain anything (hopefully my happiness?)  I am 41 and I’ve known to be a girl since I was 4.  During that time I was afraid to be who I was due to… well fear of being beaten.  I really wanted to come out during pride month but the problem is I still have no pride, I still feel shame for being me.  I am married with 4 kids, 3 are adults now and 1 young one, so not sure how they would take it.  And I work in construction industry so that’s not the best field to be open in.  I do feel trapped and not sure how I should handle my life.  But I am sure you all have had it easy. 😉 hope to meet some new people and wish lots of love on all of you.

      Glad you decided to join us!

      However, I have to tell you that there are no easy roads here. As Sheryl Crow said: “Every Day Is A Winding Road…”. That’s just how it is. While many of us have common threads in the course of our lives, there are also many differences for a vast number of reasons and it is very easy to come upon land mines.

      However, weighing the pluses and minuses about coming out is a frequent dilemma here and there is no simple answer as many things have to be considered. While many here have had a better experience than they thought, there are no guarantees; only probabilities.

      As you live in or near a major metropolitan area, I suspect that there may be some support groups that are in progress. That could be a very useful first step. Also, there should be therapists in the area who are experienced in gender issues. The idea is to figure out where things really sit for you and begin to plot a course forward. This is not the work of a minute. Think of it more as a journey rather than a sprint.
