The End to a Transgender Transition?

At my hairdresser yesterday, she asked me a question her transgender son brought up…does a transgender transition ever end. Her son felt as if it would never stop primarily because he would have to take hormones for the rest of his life. I agreed with that plus added in for me I wondered if my Trans-PTSD would ever go away.

An example happened today. Being Saturday, I went with Liz to two of her martial arts classes and went to the grocery store. Going into today and still loving my latest hair do, I thought I was doing my best to look good.

It must have worked, because everywhere I went, I didn’t have any problems. Well, actually, I did have a problem, myself. No matter how hard I tried, once again I couldn’t relax and live in the moment. All of a sudden, I was no better off than when I was a beginning cross dresser so many years ago.

I still don’t know how long it will take for it to ever go away. Perhaps it never will. Maybe living all those years as a guy will always imprint me.

  1. You may not feel brave living your personal life the way you want, but the fact is that expressing it is certainly an act of personal valour.
    In a society where people feel threatened by anyone different, it isn’t easy.
    You deserve respect

    1. Thanks! I go back though to the point we didn’t have a choice to be transgender but did have a choice to be survivors.
      Appreciate the comment!
