Hi! I registered earlier today and spent the day going through the site and now I wanted to take a minute and do an introduction of myself (I apologize before hand if I ramble a bit)..
My name is Lauren Michelle or just Lauren (sorry but I do love being called Lauren). I am a 48 year old MTF woman. I have struggled with my identity all my life (I’m sure I’m not the first)..but after all the years I’m moving forward now with being my true self. I find I’m happier with myself as I become more accepting of myself as a woman. I used to think it was all about the clothes (the fetish stage for me) but more and more it became less about the clothing (don’t get me wrong I LOVE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF MY GIRL CLOTHES) and more about how I feel internally in my mind and heart as a woman. I look at my self and really don’t like the reflection…it’s just not correct. I even tried the marriage route but that ended as I had no attraction to her (I’m a heterosexual female).
Now while I dressed off and on since I was around 15 I really am a newbie at being a woman and I have not come out to anyone yet. I know one of my first steps is to find a therapist which hopefully will lead to confirmation of what I already know about myself. Then on to HRT…where I have done reading upon reading of the effects which are both positive and negative but the positive far outweigh the negative in my eyes.
Whew there’s probably more I could say but I’ve probably rambled on enough for now..
