    <p style=”text-align: center;”>Hello, My name is Justice (Jess)…</p>
    I’ve never spoke to anyone about how my mind works.. Sincei was 4-5, now 24 i have had the interests a female would. Knew i wanted to be a girl/women. And it never changed, it eats me away every day. I’ve been living a lie to satisfy those around me in what im “spose” to look like act, talk.

     

    When i was younger. Strangers would think i was a girl till i was in middle school.

     

    I painted my nails, put make up on wore womens cothing and got caught a few times by my mother. “If i wanted a girl, i would of had a girl”. And thats as far as that went.. She probably figured it was a stage. And got caught again when i was on highschool. And it was never talked about.

     

    I dont know how to start. Where do i go for a counseler i can trust? I would like to begin HRT and over the next 2-3 years start getting the surgerys.

     

    Advice please? I just want to be my self and feel good about my self. And i never will if i keep living a lie.

      You should definitely get a doctor with knowledge of hormones to monitor things for you. In the Chicago area I see Dr. Fred Ettner, who is great. I highly recommend him if you are willing to drive down here.

      Hi:

      Glad you found your way to our doorstep. Don’t worry. We’re all housebroken. Well, most of us anyway!?!?

      Seriously, though, many here have been where you are now. I won’t say that it is easy, but the good news is that it is survivable.

      I did a bit of searching and found a couple of things:

      https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists/gay/wi/appleton?sid=5ffd1ecf9ae3c&spec=1712
      Although the heading is Gay Therapists, there are folks who have experience with gender issues.

      https://www.mkelgbt.org/
      They have some trans-specific programs. Their gatherings are all over ZOOM these days, so it doesn’t matter that you are not that close.

      I also want to encourage you to complete your Profile page. It helps people to understand your situation better. Under “Social” in the menu is a link to the “Member Directory”. There you can search for other members from Wisconsin…
