You look lovely. :) I can only hope the results will be that good if I ever decide to transition. I've actually wanted to live as a girl since I was about 4 years old, and long story short, I'm still living as a man (for the most part) 20 years later. I've recently put some serious thought into transitioning though, and I came out to my mom about my TG feelings *literally* 2 days ago. She was very sad that I didn't tell her sooner as she could've supported me when I was a kid. I knew that's how she'd react as she's an ultra-progressive supercool mom. You'd think that with a mom like that, I would've just come out 12 years ago when I first started considering a sex change, but sometimes it's just not that simple.
Anyway, being a full-grown man makes me reluctant to go through with it. Will the results really be worth it? Will that little bit of happiness I gain from it really be worth it? I mean, it's not like I'm standing on the precipice of suicide. It's a big decision, and I don't know if simply being happier is enough to warrant it. I was actually diagnosed with dysthymia (mild but long-term depression) at age 6, and I feel this either never went a way or resurfaces on a regular basis. As a result I've just gotten used to being unhappy and it's become part of my character.
