The incurable disease

Crossdressing may be an incurable disease

Surely with all our scientific research we’ve stumbled upon a cure for cross dressing? If only to save all you wonderful genetic girls from stretched clothes and missing lingerie.

There’s plenty of sites out there that will boldy claim that crossdressing is incurable. Starting with the prelude that crossdressing isn’t a disease (hence needing no cure). We could get into endless debate about whether it’s a disease or not, so setting that question aside, is crossdressing curable?

Over the next few weeks I’ll see to answer that question (at least reserach it and present some points of view).
For my own part, I’ve been crossdressing ever since I was four years old. There have been periods when I’ve dressed, and periods when I haven’t. There have even been months, almost years when I haven’t thought about slipping on a satin evening gown, or strapping on a pair of high heels. Then like a snake in the night it’s back – and I find myself daydreaming about being transformed into a beautiful princess.

Makeup Magic

For the last few year’s I’ve believed the common wisdom that there is no cure for crossdressing. In fact, have even come to accept who I am (and dare I say enjoy being who I am!). I can’t honestly say that I’ve ever given a focused, dedicated, and constantly renewed effort to ‘beat this thing’.

Sure, I’ve purged (who hasn’t!), in fact I can count three times where I’ve thrown away clothes I’d love to see still hanging in my closet. Usually the result of guilt, building up over a few months. One purge was a result of my noble intentions to truly do something better with my life. After all, spending hours learning how to put on make-up, and shopping for the perfect top aren’t exactly “productive” time.

Is there really a cure out there?

    I’ve purged many times and always came up empty. All I can say it is a lot easier to handle it with acceptance. I fought it constantly for years to no avail. We are wired this way so please don’t beat yourself up over the dressing. We are very unique in a lot of ways. Just enjoy who you are and remember there are many people out there who are willing to help you. It’s not a death sentence. Enjoy the ride!

    I have loved lingerie ever since puberty since it gave me blasting orgasms and it has stayed with me all my life, I am 71 now and divorced of course, no woman would tolerate me. I have purged my lingerie collection too many times and I will no more. I just bought a lovely black full slip and a black lacy full length nightgown.

      Sounds great Laurine! I love full slips very much. I feel so calm when I dress. Ever since I started accepting my girl inside things have been great. I am still closeted but I refuse to let it get me down. Would love to hear from you sometime. Take care! Jennifer.

    Well honestly its the first time i do write to somebody to tell about my crossdressing… in fact i cant explain , but when i was young on an holiday home i did put a pair of stocking of my sister and slep with them. today and after so many years i still like to wear women clothes.i am married and got two grown up suns , i dont exactly know if they know about this, but one thing is true, i feel very confortable on dressing like a woman, every night, when they are sleeping.. i never went out dressing with women dresses, but i would like to try once… i hope anyone can tell me what to do.:)

    I started at 12 when I tried on a pair of my mom's panties. Later, a year after I married my lovely wife, she learned about and accepted my fetish for panties which grew over the years to bras, pantyhose, slips and shoes. Then one night I had a very vivid dream that I was wearing a dress and very excited sexually in it. I told my darling wife that I wanted to wear a dress and she went along it. I ever wore my dresses etc outside the house, though I wore bras, panties and pantyhose to work everyday. Then one day when I was 57 my darling wife passed on At that time I gave my life to the Lord.and some three months later, one day I had the urge and next day the desire to wear dresses was gone. But I still had a panty fetish from my early years. Several years later I remarried. She was and is also born again and loves the Lord. She also went along with my fetish which over the years grew to wearing bras and nightgowns, but nothing further and the old desire for women's outer wear has not and will not return. I am pretty certain of the source of that first dream. Resist the devil and he will flee.

    I struggle with all this. I’d love to swish. I dream of wearing skirts. But St Paul says, “Anything not done in faith is done in sin”. And I was born a hot-blooded man. Many times I’ve prayed for healing.

    Why do we who have accepted who we are need to find a cure? Do we try to cure those who may be trapped in say a religon that condons punishment to those who will not believe as they? No, we just simply brush it aside as their beliefs. I for one do not believe that i need to be cured from my TG. Though it can be a difficult path to stay on it is the one that has been laid out for me to follow. I find not only joy but purpose to my life just as i am. Let us band together and show to those that might judge, by not judging others ourselves!

    i think maby it releses a cemicl in the brain kinda like when someone takes drugs, that makes you feel good but without the side affects of drugs, maby crossdressing could be used to help poeple stop taking drugs.it helped me stop drinking.

    I find it a bit ridiculous that it’s being considered a disease, let alone one in need of a cure. I honestly don’t see how it’s any different from any other interest, like, hell, music is for me. I think the reason some people feel the need to cure anything is maybe because it’s a hobby that isn’t socially accepted.

    Is there a cure? Maybe if your willpower is strong enough you could switch your ‘tranny’ side off. I think it would be much like making a promise to eat nothing but bread and water. Sure, you’ll survive, but is surviving living?

    It is better to accept who you are and deal with the consequences or better to fight against it for the sake of some ideal?

    I’ve tried both and to be honest, the latter brought me nothing but heartache. I’m not saying that it will be the same for everyone, but I’d hardly class myself as 100% unique. 🙂
