Exited and nervous

After school is over I am finally going to start assessment therapy. Long goal is to see if hrt is something I can or should consider
So many hurdles still in front …. But I have the feeling this is going to be a positive things no matter the outcome

Good luck on that. In the meantime... try get a job with responsibilities and supportive people around you. Build your confidence while the therapy is doing its thing.

God knows I've known enough people who drastically change their body but don't gain any confidence. They're just in "Less" pain. It's like leaving a massive project unfinished.

@twistedrope thank you

Why would you want to experiment with something that could do you great harm and ruin your life?

Research shows that long-term use of combined HRT (for 5 or more years) increases the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, heart disease, stroke and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs).

What is the objective of assessment therapy, to make sure it’s the right path for you?

Unbalancing the natural hormones in your body for weird cosmetic and sexist reasons can and often does have detrimental effects. Find another way to self harm. People supporting this and calling it love need to reassess themselves.

@WhyThooo ok 👍 thanks for the advice
Hopefully, you get more clarity and a greater understanding of who you are...

Aren't you a bit young for hrt
@angie8819 Every trans person takes hrt as part of their transition.

@angie8819 if it ever happens it won’t be after some years could be up to 5
