Anyway, I'm 24 years old. I'm basically doing okay in life. I wouldn't call myself a great success yet, but I'm doing well enough. I have good friends, a promising career (though the money isn't much at the moment), and life is basically alright.
hey sorry to hear about your misfortunes, hope everything is better for you now:)
You didn't creep me out. I actually think this is very interesting.
I can't possibly overstate the importance of speaking with a psychologist (particularly one who specializes in gender identity disorder). I've been seeing a psychologist about this for a while now, and it's been really helpful. Actually sitting down with a professional and discussing these issues is the only way to uncover some semblance of truth. There's usually so much shit surrounding gender-related issues, that you might uncover something you hadn't really thought of before (i.e. various reasons that you may feel more feminine than masculine, etc.).
The surgery costs thousands of dollars. And it doesn't actually turn you into a woman, you know. You'll need to use lube because you can't get 'wet' naturally and you'll never have a period or children or menopause.

there was a recent special on tv about children with gender identity disorder- very intriguing stuff.
oh, and for a recommended list of therapists, look here:
What I'm curious about is WHY you want to be a girl?
For example, do you just appreciate feminine beauty and traits more than male ones? Or do you want to take up feminine gender roles such as feeling dependent and passive?
Alright, so, late response.
I think I understand the situation at least a little; I'm a vagina-haver who has had some gender confusion in the past, though not as severe as your situation.
