Is anyone else on here transgender/transsexual? I'm going through kind of a rough time getting to know and accept myself and I won't be able to start transitioning at all for another year or two - I'm still a minor living with my mom and I know she won't be very accepting. Right now, I bind and pack when I'm at school, then quickly change before I get home. Back in september, after a year of figuring things out, I came out to some of my friends and they seem okay with it, but still refer to me by my legal name. Only two of my friends really try to call me Zak, and it's discouraging. Has anyone else gone through this? Any advice?
I would also like to know what steps need to be taken when I am finally ready and able to transition into a male body.
Basically, I just need a little hope... I'm slowly, but steadily, getting depressed.
