Re: You know you're trans when...

When you're icing your penis, hoping it'll shrink or fall off. Trying to cause it as much pain as it causes you....

Brooke you'll have hrt soon! Hang in there! Be that strong woman we all know you are. "She'll" be taken care of in due time. Or at least hrt should help her seem less intrusive.

Yes, HRT will at least make her act the way I think she should.....I don't know if I'm all that strong to be honest.

When you're a few years into transitioning and think while putting on makeup, "Oh my god, being a woman f***ing sucks!" XD

I really don't feel like it...I want the process to begin o bad, but I just don't know if I'm strong enough to go about it....I try very hard to present as a strong, independent, bubbly woman on here, because that's what I feel my true personality is. But the reality is very different right now. I'm very shy, timid, and overall not a strong OR bubbly/happy person.

And why not? It's killing me....

I thought I was past this and had accepted it. I have a penis. I guess not, I fucking hate it so fucking much right now. If I wasn't going to be born with a vagina, I wish I wasn't born at all.

Re: You know you're trans when...

I'm sorry you're having such a bad time Brooke

it's okay to be angry. We're all here to help and talk to though. I'd rather you come yell and scream at us than you hurt yourself in any way.

you are stronger than you know!!!!!<3 and you don't have to be bubbly or strong, being shy, being vulnerable is perfectly ok too. being angry that the cards you were dealt suck is ok, being sad is ok, being Brooke is perfect. and you'll be ok too.

Re: You know you're trans when...

I see my therapist tomorrow. I get the note tomorrow. I should be ecstatic right now. But I can't be. I hate myself so fucking much. I honestly don't know if I'll make it to tomorrow. I don't think I want to. I don't even think transitioning will work. I need to die, it's the only way to stop this. The only way the pain will ever go away.

You have all been good to me, far better than I deserve. I'm leaving now, I'll be a beautiful woman in the next life, whatever that is....
