Firstly, I would like to open by thanking each every one of you who read my debut article and left loving comments. This is a beautiful community and is made up of beautiful people.

For so long, I believed that transition was never something that I would be able to seriously consider. I’m so old. My nose is too big. I’m balding and so much more. But on reflection, maybe I can do something about that. I had this feeling that it might somehow help me to start to feel better about myself; something I desperately needed.

Before long I found that simple thought had grown into something bigger and had prompted action to get things moving forward. I made an appointment with a psychiatrist on Monday of that week, to allow me to share my thoughts with a professional. I wanted to make sure that I was of sound mind and stable in my thinking. I had also made another appointment on Thursday to get an assessment of my beard growth and follicle issue.

I know that this is likely to be an uphill struggle. I don’t have the resources of a famous lawyer, like some high profile people do. I can only work with what I have and need to make things count. I need to monitor the costs of the things I desire to follow my path.

All that taken into consideration, I have to believe that I have some hope. I need to believe that God loves me enough to help me become who he intended me to be, even though I have spent my life believing that I should have been female. I have started trying to raise money through a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for Facial Feminization Surgery and I hope it helps. Meanwhile, I know that there are many individuals who are disgusted with people like me, and they have a loud voice!

I know that having embarked upon this long journey, there will be many obstacles and challenges ahead. I understand that I may lose friends and my heart might be crushed many times. But if I can’t become who I was meant to be, how can I do what God has intended me to do? Surely there must be a light at the end of this tunnel?

If anyone has some insight that may help me on this journey I ask you with all my heart, please share your knowledge and experiences with me. I long for that elusive feminine figure and that girlish face. I miss having long, flowing hair. I want to wear a beautiful dress that makes me feel like a million dollars and one that may make a man blush too. I have a desire to claim the life that I truly believe I was meant to have, so much it makes me feel that I wish to claim my rightful soul back!

All I can say is be true to who you really are on the inside, It may be a long journey, and you’ll be bound to have a few “bumps” in the road along the way, but you’ll be much happier in the end!

Christina, Your article reads like the thoughts that went through my mind. All the things you mentioned matter and I can say staying in touch with my spiritual side has made my journey a wonderful experience. I cant say there aren’t bumps, setbacks , peaks and valleys. But knowing where to go to calm my soul and my mind have given me the strength to press on. My head is, well was more bald (thank you rogaine) and my nose is a nice roman one with 2 breaks to make it a good dogleg to the right. There are things… Read more »

Christina, Follow your dreams! As Michael Jordan said, “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”! I wrote a forum post a while back that was a modification of Teddy Roosevelt’s famous speech “Its not the critic who counts”-“It’s not the critic who counts; not the woman who points it how there cross dresser gets read, or where tre person who left home drsssed could have looked better. He credit belongs to the woman who is actually in the arena, whose makeup is slightly smeared from nervous perspiration; who dares to go out into the world; who fails to… Read more »

I don’t know what medical insurance you have, but I have Kaiser. Kaiser has a department called, Gender Pathways Clinic. They help you discover just what you want. They will pay for facial hair removal. I’m taking advantage of that myself. They will even pay for SRS, but sadly not breast enhancement, or facial surgery. They will however prescribe testosterone blockers and estrogen. All this under the “informed consent” model. (No psychologist needed.) I’m a little over a year into HRT and I’ve found that simply pushing my body chemistry to the female side has done a lot to give… Read more »

I think that you should keep doing what you want to do, I too am older, ( 69 ) but there is not any chance to my loved ones or friends, could or would except me as a crossdresser. Just yesterday I went shopping at a lingerie store and had a young lady help me find the proper size panties to fit me. And it was the most exhilarating and free feeling I have ever had, knowing that there is someone out there that knows I like wearing women’s panties. So please don’t give up doing what you think is… Read more »

Hello Christina
The basic fact you are in the right place. I’am sure that there is some one who has the same story as you. I would say work with your psychiatrist and your Higher Power, which you choose to call God.
I’am 71, I know age has big factor on what we do for the rest of our lives. My Heart is with you
Love, Vicke
