Is this a good place to start breaking my shell?

    Hey! I’m Asher! You can call me Ash or Asher, it doesnt matter to me. I’ve accepted being trans for about a month, though the feeling of hating my ackowledgment as a female has been there since I was aware of my existance. Im currently in college, living with parents. I major in music, and plan on getting four different degrees. I’m pretty clueless besides the research I do to better myself on knowing. There are plenty of things i’m confused about, so hopefully TGH helps me like I hope. Nice to meet you!

      Asher:

      Glad to you found us and I hope it will be a good experience for you!

      I’m originally from Ohio, Toledo to be exact, so Double Welcome!

      As you will soon discover, the members here cover the spectrum from questioning to transitioned years ago and all points in between. It is also a very diverse community in terms of location, occupations, family situations, community support, etc. For younger and/or newer folks, it reinforces the notion that we are everywhere and doing everything. However, that is not to say that there are not serious challenges in the lives of some trans folks. Sadly, for too many, their lives are a daily uphill struggle. To me, this is one of the powerful things about community. When you need it most, and usually unexpected, kind words and encouragement drop out of the blue; often because someone has been in a very similar situation and they speak from personal experience.

      Does your school have an LGBT organization? If so, I would encourage you to get involved. It’s a great way to begin to get involved with the community and to meet others.    . They may also have resources available for trans folks. The same would also apply to any LGBT organizations for the general public.

      Also, many here have found it useful to work with a therapist. They are not going to “fix” anything’s for you, but they will help you to put things into perspective and help keep you focused on what needs to be considered. However, it is important to find someone with experience in gender issues as not everyone has that particular background or interest.

      You can search for other members in your area by clicking on Social in the menu and then Member Directory.

      Also, know that you can update your Profile page at any time if something changes for you. It really helps other members understand with how things sit for you, what your goals are, etc.
