I joined this forum several months ago but never brought myself to participate. I'm 33 years old, assigned male at birth, and I've been privately cycling through a handful of understandings of my gender. At present, I've been coping with the possibility that I might be a trans woman. I am super scared about what a transition would mean for my life, or if it's the right thing for me. I came out to a few good safe friends, and I'm experimenting with being a girl in all my interactions with them. So far it brings me a level of happiness that hardly males sense to me. I thought maybe I should try it here too... I am a 33 year old trans woman, my name is Jessica (or Jess), my pronouns are she/her, and I'm excited to talk to all of you.
