Re: supernatural crossdreamer

I have to say, Lost, I feel your love of anime as such a close parallel to my own affinities.  Fantasy such as the anime female or the superheroic female is not an escape from reality for me but rather gives me the way to assess what kind of reality I aspire to.

Re: supernatural crossdreamer

Thanks everyone for your openness.  I'm finding that my depression causes my words to be very dark compared to the voices of encouragement of everyone here.  I'd rather preserve the hopeful tone here and take a step back from active posting, but I am grateful to continue to listen.

Re: Alcohol and drug abuse among crossdreamers

If only it were occasional events like weddings, that would be one thing.  But business meetings, even casual gatherings with any number of friends greater than the most intimate 1- those present the same challenges and the same binding force to use alcohol to cope.

Re: Alcohol and drug abuse among crossdreamers

What can I say... the majority of my social interactions are assisted by that "perfect number" of drinks from which inhibitions are lowered and yet functionality is high quality.  Without it, introversion is guaranteed to be high.  It is certainly nothing to be proud of, but we are working through it.

Re: disinterest & frustrations

And to that end, I contribute a third pastime recently vanished.  Playing the piano is, as far as I recall in my past, vastly different as a girl.  Wearing heels feels completely different upon the pedals and also changes your posture and the entire way your body moves, even though you are seated.  ...

Re: disinterest & frustrations

It is indeed a cyclical problem: dysphoria and dormancy exacerbate one another with equally strong causality, and the very parts of the self that you know would be crucial to self-acceptance are the very parts inaccessible during our self-rejection.  April and Dawn, you pose the valid question of be...

Re: Gender question

I do have to ask at what point such arbitrary options begin to trivialize the very question that we take very seriously here.

Re: disinterest & frustrations

I am grateful for the encouragement of everyone, but I also recognize that I'm not yet in any position to be pushed into self-actualization.  That is why my original question was not so much how do I pick myself up again but more basic: are there things you would enjoy doing in your ideal body that ...

disinterest & frustrations

If I were indeed the goddess I want to be, I would find joy in doing so many more things.  But in this original body, I have no desire to do anything at all.  And if there is anything that even remotely requires effort, I become irremediably angry. My question for everyone is- what things do you eit...
