Getting Gender Dysphoria Only After Realising I’m Probably Trans?
By - Lady-Maya
I think this sounds pretty common.
For me, things snowballed. I started doing similar stuff, and then things progressed over time. At first little things are enough, now I'm on hormones, my entire wardrobe is female clothes and I just can't imagine having arm hair, or leg hair, or brushy eyebrows.
Now that being said, I hated the way I looked in boy mode. Always have. I just didn't realize I had other options for a long time. Now I love the way I look:) mostly
The problem with a stress that is always on you is, that after a certain time you stop realizing it as something that is not normal, so it is there, but your brain copes with it somehow, and uses other behaviors to get released. That might up ending in dysfunctional thinks, like addictions, depressions, or other things.
What do you think is being disconnected to yourself other then a coping mechanism for dysphoria. Or your constant meh.
Once you realize what is going on, this mechanism fail, and you realize the dysphoria without this filters.
