wish i could be happy - December 8th 2016, 06:31 PM

so my case manager stopped by today who helps me get to appointments and stuff when I don't have a car. she took me to my therapy appointment on Tuesday and she gave me a short lecturer on how I'm so nice and easy to talk too she said as soon as I got out of the car she saw my smile vanish and my head drop down. so she asked me whether I was still having issues with self confidence and being comfortable as a woman (I'm trans) and honestly I don't know... I'm happy being a woman but she also told me I need to stop living two lives she says I need to choose who I want to be man or woman and I already decided I'm gonna live my life as a woman my name has been legally changed as well as my gender on most documents and I'm on hormones. but I still have to portray a man sometimes cause my mom throws a fit anytime I try to go out dressed as a woman that her parents are gonna be even tho they know I'm trans she says if I wear a dress or skirt around them it would be disrespectfull which I honestly don't give a damn if it is. I wasn't allowed to go to my familys thanksgiving cause I was gonna wear a dress and my mom forbid me to come if I was gonna dress as a woman..

I guess what I'm asking is what can I do to make my mom grow the hell up

Hey there,
I'm so sorry to hear your mum is not really being very supportive. Do you think its possible for you to sit her down and have a serious chat with her about how you're feeling and that is really creating a lot of stress for you?
Or perhaps tell her that you're an adult and that it is your choice how you dress?


PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

done that and they don't care...

went over to my parents house and my sister and her family were there so I walk in the kitchen where everyone is and next thing I know my niece runs upto me and calls me a crazy freak....while everyone just stared at me like daring me to correct her and all I wanted to do was backhand her..

Hey Kelsey,

I know how much you've been struggling with this huge change that's currently going on in your life. I can't offer much support as my family has always been accepting when it comes to this type of stuff. However, I do highly recommend reaching out to someone in your area who might be able to give you more advice about your situation.

Stay strong,
Brittany

How long have you identified as female, dressed as female, and been taking hormones for? If you don't mind me asking..

I believe you have a counsellor, correct? Are you able to talk to them to see what you should do? Either way, the decision is up to you. Yes you will have haters, but you need to do what's best for you.

I'm not really around much, hence the staff on leave, however you can always try calling a hotline, or you can ask your psychologist if there's any support groups in your area where you can go to meet other trans people. They have a couple of them here in Canada.

I hope you feel better soon!
