Well, I finally worked up the courage to tell one of my best friends about my being transgender. I chose this friend because I figured he would be accepting. Even though he was very open minded and accepting about this, it still felt like the hardest thing I've ever done.
So now that I'm at least out and have a good friend that I feel I can safely confide these feelings in, I need to figure out what's next for me. I've been considering going to my city's lgbt pride center to see what sort of free help and resources I can find there. I'm trying to find some more subtle ways to be more feminine every day. So far for this, I'm thinking things like switching my bath products to using some shower gels and women's deodorant. Also have felt that I could get away with wearing panties full time.
So that's kind of where I am in a nutshell. I'm starting to become more accepting of myself as transgender. I know the next few weeks are going to be interesting.
