Hi to all the gorgeous women and men
First, a big thanks to the creator of this much needed website for people suffering from Gender Dysphoria. Do let me know if i can be of any help. I have created a Facebook page only yesterday and you can all find me by my name "Alyssa Beguile" with a beautiful archer
I am a 41 year old transgender from Delhi with wife and 2 kids. We have been married for 11 years and my wife knows my secret. I have hid this from the rest of the world for almost 28 years (i told my mom in 1990 in rural part of India, when i was 13 that i wanted to be a girl, when she said hijras will take me away and which frightened me back then). I did extensive study once i had access to computers and internet since 1998 and have been studying since then taking to various people across the globe. The past couple of years have become increasingly difficult to think anything else apart from change. It's then that something burst in my brain and I cannot wait for another life to fulfill my wishes.
After years of struggle, I finally succeeded in convincing my wife to help me. Considering my situation, I am happy to only have HRT in my life and I assured her i won't go for full change for the better future of kids and her (India and, in fact, even other countries are cruel to families).
We together met the psychologist thrice and he told my wife that she needs to support me at this stage as i am trying everything to save marriage. He gave his nod to see an endocrinologist. At the same time he told my wife that she should not feel cheated if i later want to go for complete change. He told me that my thought process will change and i myself might not be able to stick to my commitment of only having HRT.
So today, we both went to see an endocrinologist who got 39 years experience. I told him my problem for 30 minutes straight and my wife said she supports me but she wanted to know the risk factors, which she already studied though. The doctor said I know way too much than him and needed one week's time to study in order to help me. Paid Rs.2000/- for consultation.
Here is the confusion. Should i go see him again?
Is every endocrinologist aware of male to female HRT? The doctor has 39 years experience as an endocrinologist. Should i go see him again?
Even the psychologist and endocrinologist asked me if i met anyone who are transitioning. I am looking forward to meet to seek guidance.
Anyone willing to help and need help can add me in Facebook, which details i shared above.
