I`m seeing my new therapist tomorrow, and this therapy is all about me being trans and how to come out to my family. I know what I want and what I need, but there are still doubts.

I am so nervous, I am shaking at the thought of tomorrow. I don`t know if I will be able to say the things I want to say and I am so very afraid that she tells me that these feelings I have are just a lie. I don`t know what else it could be, if it is not trans.

I need these hormones and this transition so badly. What if my therapist says no? I hate having to prove who I am and being dependent on one therapists opinion…..

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I know this feeling all too well. I have been going to therapy for 10 months and finally had those exact words come out during my last session. I kept thinking it (especially during the last few months) and it finally came out. Good luck to you and I hope you find a supportive therapist.
