Well here's a news flash
.... I saw Dr Russell Ried on November 17th 2004, and he is treating me
for Transsexualism. Having had various tests with my GP who is
giving me "shared care" I received my hormone prescription on 8th
December, and started taking them on the 9th. I have started a transition
diary and there is a link to it down this page ...
The section doesn't
really deal with Transsexualism as such, but general "Transgender"
matters ... I do realise now that Transsexuals are different ...
because I finally addmit I am Transsexual. Most of this site deals with
matters before I had an appointment with Dr Russell Reid, while I tried
to find who I was ... so the rest of this is quite old.
bare with me it will take me a while to get my ramblings sorted.
I'm a 40 something heterosexual transgendered
male ...trying to be the girl I should have been born as with
the support of my wife of over 22 years.
I've known what I am (and should have been) since the age of 3 or
TRANSGENDERED is a big word .... It means a lot of things
to a lot of people ....
I know I'm not alone .... But if you can be
lucky to be born transgendered, then I am because unlike most I
have the support of a loving wife ....
Being transgendered is not something you can become ... GOD has
made you that way and you've always been that way ... some people just
take longer to identify themselves ... and it's not our or your fault.
I'm transgendered, I'm not "queer", "gay as a
male" or "hetro as female" ..... I love my wife always ....!!!!!
what does that mean .... Sarah's a lesbian .... yes that may be correct
.... to be honest I'm not sure.
Being the girl you see and more.....
Silk, Satin & Velvet when femininity matters...
Earrings (mine are pierced) .... bold, delicate and elegant...
All things feminine, make up, jewellery,
Stiletto heels (higher the better, wear 5" for upto 10 hours).
and when not femme ... I'm a yachtsman ... oh
to be a yachtswoman please .. like Ellen ...
Real Life ... Family ...
In real life I am a professional person working in "the media". I
have interests outside of this world, but I am
aware that Sarah has been a growing influence in my life .... it seems
happen to TG's in their 40's.
My wife and kids are my real life of course, they come first for
everything. I love my wife very deeply and I am
totally monogamous with her, I know of no other couple where the
wife is as accepting of her "best friend, husband and lover" as mine
in all I want to do.
I have male and female friends in "drab" life
of course who know nothing of Sarah, if they do then they haven't
said and must be accepting of me. I'm
not interested in
being pursued and harassed by men or women simply wanting to date, but
to be friends with "girls" and when possible their understanding wives
( for my
wife) is a great pleasure and desire.
friends here are the "girls" and their wives I've met on line via messenger
chat through various Yahoo groups I have joined, and at parties both
private and "public" that my wife and I have attended ....
Well I could list about 50 from my friends list on Yahoo Messenger , but they are
all over the world, mainly in UK but also in Australia, Canada, New
Zealand , USA, Yugoslavia .. all over the place, one in every village
surrounding mine here in Surrey, England.
I would say about 20% have wives that know but are not supportive other
than accepting, 10% have wives that do accept and are happy to
socialise with others ....
It would be difficult to list my friends by name without offending
people in some way, why name her first, I chat more often, etc ...
If one deserves a special mention then it must be Linda Martin. Linda
and her wife encouraged my wife and I out to meet
them in their own home ..... and we haven't looked back. Linda is
amazing, she can look so convincing and so different from her drab
self. Her wife is welcoming, friendly and encouraging to those she
meets. We have spent many pleasureable evenings with them in their
and our homes, and out at venues.
Honesty ... it's a difficult thing to find in the transgendered world
... but I'm trying .....
