    Omg I did it. Yesterday evening I finally told my mother and step father (who basicly is my real dad imo). I knew they would take it well cause they thought I was gay when I was younger so we already had "the gay talk" if you know what I mean.

    It still was very hard to do. Somehow I cant get the words to leave my mouth. So I "eased" them in with other diagnoses I had had (Borderline, ptss-complex) and they responded in a calm and collected way like, yeah we knew that lol. So. Yeah.

    Then I just blurted it out. "IGOTDIAGNOSEDWITHGENDERDYSFORIA" and hid behind the couch hahaha. And again they both were likeyeah we kinda knew this. Turned out my mother was looking out for me in puberty when I used to steal my sisters clothes (had 4 so enough choice, and if they missed something they would blame eachother haha) but she found out pretty early and cleaned up after me aince I was pretty dense, sloppy and untidy back then and they already had extensive talks about me concerning this ordeal.

    They took it really well. They gave me a lot of love and understanding and Im super thankful for that. Ofcourse they had a lot of awkward questions but overall it went very well.

    So lets hear a hurray for my parents! :slight_smile:(!)(!)

    Haha yes. All important people know now. It makes me feel less forced into the male role. Some room to breath.
