You sound alot like myself. I always put my femme side in the background. It started fully wanting to express itself through me in my late 30s. I turned to alcoholism as a way to cope. Now in my late 40s I'm more bold, brave and struggling to keep sober. I'm still not sure if I'm truly trans or a casual crossdresser yet though. With no partner or kids I feel very fortunate because I don't need to explain myself to anyone in my personal life. I hope all goes well with you on your journey of self discovery.Thanks Allie!
What to share? I am a middle-aged New Yorker starting over both professionally and personally. I was married (for about 20 years) and had a very successful career and lost both as well as a lot of my self-confidence and self-esteem a few years back in a midlife struggle with depression and anxiety. I suffered from some gender dysphoria nearly all my life, though I didn’t always understand it fully; but I have recently achieved acceptance and peace.
The path form here? I don't know and that's OK. I am exploring both social and physical transitioning steps, but don't feel any pressure or urgency about deciding. Or any need to make any decision to please anyone but myself.
And looking forward to hearing about all of you and your own journeys!
