I'd been dressing since I was in my mid teens on and off. Went through the usual cycle of purging my female clothes and then getting stuff all over again. The autogynephilla was intense and I needed to find some sort of release I guess.
When I was made redundant in 2013 I took some time to get some counselling. Ended up with a gender therapist and I was diagnosed as transsexual. Started on hormones and then after about a year or me living mostly as a woman, I was told to think about the next steps if I want to. So I went full time and planned for surgery.
26 August 2015 I had B.A. and vaginoplasty. I was reborn as Anna at the age of 41.
My dream has come true in a way. I had thought about many years earlier what it would be like to have a woman's body, but never thought I'd get to know. Now I do.
As Ginger said, wow, that is a lot of change and moving forward with your life in a pretty short time. It's nice to hear you are enjoying it and experiencing everything you thought you might never get to. I hope you have the time to stay active on the site as I'm sure there are many of us who might benefit from your experiences.
I am sure there are many who have no current plan or desire to have SRS or even to undertake HRT but that does not diminish the benefit of your experience and perspective to the general forum. I know there are some of us who still do not have a clear path forward with a known end goal and a plan to get there. It sounds like you were able to put some clarity of purpose and actions to get where you are.
Anyway - Thanks for sharing your story to this point, and BTW - Have a GREAT time enjoying your journey forward
I think that those members who have undergone SRS gradually drift away as they either feel they (a) no longer need the sense of community or (b) no longer have much in common with the greater part of the membership.
That said however, the friendships still exist and anyone who has transitioned is still welcomed as part of our community. It would be interesting both those who desire to transition and probably many of those who don't to read as much of your story as you feel like sharing with us. It would probably be better if you started a new thread in the long term members section as this will allow new members to have their introductions shown first in this section. Sara x
