    Not out at all
    When you're so so worried your packer might be obvious because you're not out... but also wanting people to notice
    When you can only look at your face in the mirror because seeing the rest of your body is so painful, but you still wish your face looked different

    When someone smiles at you with that friendly but bemused smile that always leaves you feeling self conscious and ridiculous, but this time you look beyond your insecurity and gratefully smile back.

    I get this all the time! I'm trying to describe the pixie version of how I want my hair, I end up with the top too short and sides and back blended in too much, just like every dude that got their hair cut there this year!

    No they're not! They remind me that I'm 10" too tall, I have no boobs and my hips and bum aren't plush enough.

    Well, if you're not currently in a relationship, is it really a pressing matter to come out for your sexual orientation? I'm sure once you meet Mx Right, they'll figure it out when you bring by her home for Thanksgiving dinner...

    When you honestly thought you were okay, and then one day you start taking estradiol, and realize in the course of three months that all the rest of your life, you were not okay.

    It feels like that? I'm seriously starting to wonder if maybe HRT is something I should consider.

    Oh yeah, it definitely does. All trans women are different, but I was only stopped all the times because I didn't think I was trans "enough". Now the only thing I hate is not having started earlier.

    I had a marked mental health improvement after just two weeks.

    Wow! I'm so glad for you that you feel that much better, at last, but so quickly!

    I've been shaving mine, and underarms, and chest etc, for years now. I have let it grow back during periods of self doubt, or denial that it's necessary or what I want or that others will notice (and what will they think?!). I can't stand it though, but what's strange is that I didn't feel this way a) until after doing it for the first time, and b) until well into my thirties.
