    Let me introduce myself I’m Alexia. Turned 36 at the end of may. I’ve fault my self for the same number of years. I almost killed myself by not giving a darn about my health. But since accepting myself I’ve got my blood pressure and diabetes under control and was able to start HRT on 6/27/2022. I’m happy to be here and meet new friends.

      Hi Alexis! I see you are from S Central PA. I live in Pittsburgh and went to Keystone in Harrisburg in March. Nt sure how close you are to PGH, but we have a monthly local Meetup group I’ve been a member of since October last year. The Harrisburg area is full of good trans support groups, too.

      If you are ever over this way, private message me and maybe we can meet. Just for a meal, gathering, etc. I’m not interested in hook-ups or anything past socializing.

      Hugs,

      Brie

      Alexis:

      Glad to have you with us!

      You’ve made an important discovery. As trans people, the problem isn’t our gender identity. It has to do with the society that surrounds us. We’ve been given a lot of BS messages and unfortunately, we have believed them. Initially the messages came from parents, teachers, etc.; basically people in positions of authority with respect to us. They didn’t have to tell us directly, although that sometimes happens. Children are great at sensing what is OK and what isn’t. Hearing people disparage those who are different, for any number of reasons, sends a very powerful message. Some are successful at stealth and some are not. Either way, it creates a lot of pressure, tension, guilt, self-loathing, depression and many other bad things. Many people think, erroneously, that we are unstable to begin with, but that isn’t the case at all. If we can live as we need to, the storm clouds part and the sunshine is revealed.

      Have you done a search for any transgender resources in your area? When things closed up, many organizations started doing their support groups and social gatherings online. This continues in a number of places as it is a good way to address lack of transportation, transportation costs and the time it takes up. It isn’t a universal solution, but it does help in certain situations. Anyway, it is very important for people to know that they are part of a community and that they are not alone.

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

      It would be helpful if you completed your Profile page. It helps others understand you situation and what’s happening for you. The page can be updated at any time and will always be readily available.
