    Come on hun... fight for what you want! It is okay to be scared, but have the courage to fight for what you want! :slight_smile: You'll see, at the end of it all you'll emerge more beautiful and amazing than you ever thought possible.

    You're right. I can't give up. I don't want to die a man, I want to be a woman when I go out. Th other end is bright and sunny if I just push through...

    My crisis is over. You can all have the thread back now.

    Super glad to hear is all better.

    But for the love of all that's good, reflect on it when you feel stronger. I love the exuberance in your posts and your sense of humour, and you'll be a wonderful young lady if you chose to, full of life and laughter, I can already see glimpses of your absolutely fabulous spirit, BUT I don't like this sentence of yours at all at all : "I don't want to die a man, I want to be a woman when i go out."

    I wish you would feel that you chose to transition to live better, a long and fulfilled life together with loving friends and family... not to die with a different body. (&&&)

    Please sweety, reflect on it. The dysphoria is a mental beast, not physical. If you don't address it completely, it can and will emerge with you on the other side of the transition as well. Make sure its potential other causes are addressed in parallel with your physical transition as well okay? Lots of love . Stay strong. Stay courageous :slight_smile:. (*hug*)

    when you sleep with foam breastforms and a bra on, and in the morning almost forget that they aren't real breasts and feel super happy to not have a tottally flat chest.

    You see your naked back in the mirror and think you look good. Just don't turn around.

    You see a pack of pills on your desk with "for women" on it and you're like WTF is this doing here until you realize that these are against period pain.

    you wake up feeling great and for the first time without much dysphoria, you dress and look like a guy and go to school. and your period comes and reminds you of your flaws as a female when you want to be a guy...

    In light of those other recent posts.

    When it's shark week and all you can do is lie in bed and stare up at the ceiling and accept that happiness is impossible and you will never achieve it because of your body.

    Or, or, when you're so depressed so you start picking and scratching at yourself uncontrollably until you realize your arm is so messed up and swollen that the circulation has been cut off and you have no feeling in your hand.

    OR when you can't stand the sight of the blood so you make and adult diaper out of pads with your underwear just so you won't have to change it and see it for as long as possible.


    When will this hell end.

    looking back I can see where I self censored, it was automatic and very effective.
