I’ve found my 6 months of weekly zoom therapy incredibly useful. I was already searching for a therapist when l came out to my wife (lifelong depression, anxiety, self esteem issues). I then switched my focus onto finding a therapist specialising in this area. These talks have taken me from my ashamed guilty cd closet, through 10 weeks lockdown zero dressing opportunities, to omg I’m on hrt.
Finding the kindness of this community made me realise that I’m not alone, not a freak and have no reason to feel ashamed. Therapy has helped me dig deeper and really unpack my cd history. But the first step was admitting to myself that this was part of who I am.
It upsets me greatly that in so many places admitting that you are struggling, or even questioning, and especially seeking help, or even going to therapy is still so stigmatised.
wishing you a wonderful sunny Sunday afternoon/morning/evening xx
