jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) I've been trying, all day, to start a blog.  I created it, but I can't find where to type the main text of my entries.  For now, I seem to have the easiest time with the shoutbox.  I know I'm heard, here, for sure, and I can easily find other stuff I've already typed, here.

pushkal : (25 November 2014 - 05:34 AM) Hello to all
jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 04:36 AM) Good morning all.  Its after 7 AM Eastern.  Cold weather's coming back to PA.  Yuck.  Anyway, in response to someone I read, I would like to start a thread on my unique issues.  I wonder if this is what intersexed is.  When setting up my account, I wasn't sure which gender option to choose.  All I know is, I want to honestly state my true physical makeup as a man, but just as honestly confess my internal female feelings.  I've always wanted to meet other people in my exact situation.  I trust I am not alone in this, and this forum is a great way to vent these feelings I cannot just tell anyone.  At least I shouldn't be criticized or judged for this.  I'd certainly get it if I told family and church members.  I've hinted at it to my family, but I definitely did not go into all the vivid detail like I'm doing here.

pushkal : (24 November 2014 - 11:25 PM) I want to appear in public as transgender
UsernameOpti... : (24 November 2014 - 10:39 PM) Hello jennifer38, and welcome.  Perhaps you would consider starting a thread on this topic - there may be others who encounter the same issues.
jennifer38 : (24 November 2014 - 07:57 PM) Here's where things get tricky.  I like my short hair and men's clothes, but my inner self feels feminine, and it is for that reason I crave the right to use ladies' bathrooms.  My inner and outer selves are constantly at war.  I've been deathly afraid to openly tell anybody outside the TG community.  I'm glad I can open up, here.  Please, any ladies on here, talk to me when you can.  I'd like that.
PamalaFlinn : (24 November 2014 - 07:57 PM) Sometimes it is better to bite the upper lip and give the flies the honey . You will be better off in the long run . Stand clear flies for the future may hold new truths.
PamalaFlinn : (24 November 2014 - 07:52 PM) One's most inner instincts must be trusted.

jennifer38 : (24 November 2014 - 07:41 PM) Hi, everyone.  I;m new at this.  I am a man on the outside, but a girl inside.  I'm 38 and I've been blind all my life.  I fit in the category of non-op.  In the real world, I am forced to be a man, but on here, I'm glad I can be one of the ladies.  I am glad I found this site.  After several attempts, I finally was able to create my account.  Perseverance pays off.  Anyway, I'm glad to be on here.  I am glad I can declare myself TG based on feelings.  I can forget about the external for a while.

It get's Better

Posted by MegganRS , 13 June 2012 · 267 views

I wrote this some time back as a letter to many of my friends on Facebook to clue them in on who I am.  I also wrote it as an encouragement to anyone else that may be traveling the same road I am.  We all have issues, problems or obstacles that keep us from moving forward in our lives.  It is only by the grace and mercy God has shown me that I have gotten as far as I have.  No matter what journey you find yourself on, I hope I can lend some encouragement along your way.

You might have seen some of the videos from some famous athletes, politicians or other celebrities.   Well, I thought it would be important to add my voice.  I’m nobody famous.  I’m just someone who understands that your teenage years can seem to be some of the most difficult times of your life.   It took a life time to come to the point of accepting myself.  Don't make the same mistake I did.

ALL through high school and for many years after, I denied the world to see who I really was.  As a good friend once told me, it wasn’t so much as I 'came out', but I finally let the world in.  I finally summoned the courage to let the world know the really me.  You see, I wasn’t born Meggan Renee, I was born Mark Thomas.  

Growing up, I truly feared what people might say or even do if they found out the real me, I did my best to hide that I wanted to be a girl.   Feeling different kept me somewhat isolated from the other kids – don’t get me wrong – I had my friends and those are the people that have stuck with me for over 30 years, even when I told them I was transitioning.

All through elementary school, I was the smallest in my class. That alone made me target of bullies from kindergarten all through my senior year of high school. There were times I faked being sick and went home from school just to avoid the bullies waiting for me between classes.  In high school, my Christian faith was also a source of ridicule.  With all of that going on, I never had the courage to speak up and let people know I felt different – I didn’t want the bullying to get worse.

Trust me when I tell you that depression and the thought of suicide was a constant in my life.  I felt many times that if I just walked off and disappeared, no one would miss me.  In my adult years, I dealt with Anorexia and Bulimia, just to feel I had some control in my life.   But I have just now started to truly learn that it is not the good and easy times in our life that strengthens us.  It is the storms in our lives that help us learn to live.  God gives us strength to endure and over come the obstacles on the road of our lives.  Many times, that strength God provides us comes in the way of family, friends, teachers, pastors, and even professional councilors.  

I want to tell you, You are NOT alone!!  There are so many people around you that want to help if you are feeling isolated, different, or alone.  There are three words I want you to remember -  It gets better!




I enjoyed your post. It probably will help others to see they are not alone.
I know what it is like to be a small guy and picked on even though the transsexual issues I am not familiar with.
I am thankful for that from what you describe.
Take care.
