I am more than questioning my gender and have since I was 13. I am 39 now and would love to dress more and do it completely. However, I have a wife and three kids and no real time. My family doesn’t know my feelings either. I feel trapped. I have grown my hair to its longest length ever, which is medium length, dense, coarse and curly. My wife gave me a compliment on it the other day saying I was having a good hair day and it felt amazing. She bought some products for it and they are out of the female hair isle and I love that. However everytime I see a woman I am checking how she put herself together and my heart breaks wishing I were her.
I am working up the nerve to tell my wife I want to go to therapy for anxiety, I feel I am irritated all the time, short with kids and just not happy. I am hesitant to tell her I really want to go because I am questioning my gender. I don’t want to put more anxiety on her than I have to.
I feel I need therapy to confirm my thoughts and if that leads to transition to be happy, that is what I will do…I want to be happy and the best I can for family. On that note, how long does it usually take to confirm Gender Dysphoria? I feel it’s eating me from the inside. My insurance will cover some procedures but being diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria is a prerequisite.
