    Hey hi, selfish thread, sorry

    Hey! I just thought I'd let everyone know, (apologies if this should be in the Lounge) but I just discovered something pretty big about myself over the last five months or so...


    Long story short, this is me here, coming out as trans. I'm... I'm a woman, turns out. Yeah. So, that's a thing. I hope everyone's doing okay. Sorry I'm not around much. Thoughts? Questions? Please comment. I'm an open book. I still consider y'all my friends, and I hope this doesn't change things between us. I've had a lot of good times here over the many years, and I apologize for being annoying at times, as I'm sure I was, but y'know, this place is amazing, where all us weirdos can gather and express our love of horror films and undead flesheating ghouls. Yay. <3

    As long as you're happy and healthy, that's all that matters - and all the best to you, as well!

    May I ask, out of interest (and if you're comfortable saying), how the realisation came about?

    Thanks for asking! Well it's been a long journey, so there's really no one pinpoint moment that really decided things for me that I'm aware of, however over the past couple of years I've just been making more and more friends who are also trans (or non-binary/LGBT+). So, I've been doing more research about it basically, and eventually just came to terms with it like "Oh hey, yeah, that's me, actually". So I started trying out more feminine articles of clothing to see how it made me feel, and.. I just felt really good! And another thing is I've always felt uncomfortable with my facial hair, but my depression wouldn't always allow me to shave it as much as I'd like. So, but yes, I still need to start actually taking HRT and everything, working on changing my name... And now I've been spending time with other trans people in person finally over the last two months, and that's very reassuring. So, yeah? I feel like ever since I was young I wasn't comfortable with myself or my body really, always awkward and shy, and I especially didn't like going to the pool to be mostly nude in public, or changing in gym class in high school. Maybe this is TMI, but, yeah, it's just like all the pieces of my younger years coming together, adding up to this... Oh also I moved to Ohio recently, so that's another kind of big deal? Finally not living with my parents, yahoo! Sorry for the ramble.

    TL;DR Just a lot of personal reflection and research, partly initiated by just befriending others like myself online.

    Well I'm glad that you've been discovering yourself more and more in these recent times and becoming more comfortable in your own skin, as it were. Nice of you to swing by HPOTD and let us know, and it's always good to see familiar posters come back to pop their head in.

    Yay, Minion!! Yep, I've missed y'all. Sorry I don't have much to add to the zombie discussion lately.

    I think I know the kind of folks that frequent this forum to know you're only going to get good will and support here

    We may be weird, but we're level headed and sensible (generally)
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Hey congrats.
    I hope the internal struggle hasn't been too taxing on you friend.
    I stopped giving people labels years ago. Gay, bi, trans, whatever. Doesn't matter as long as people love you for who you are that's all that really matters in this short stay we have here.
    Enjoy the rest of your journey.

    AND... you're the third person I know to come out as trans in the past few years. Good luck with everything, blind2d, and I'll see you around the forum I'm sure.
