Resolved Question:

Hi,
I have been cross dressing for a very long time. I know that I should have been born female and I want to start my journey to womanhood. I had testicular cancer and had one removed. I all ways wished something would happen to the yukky thing but not cancer. I felt this way from a very early age that I should be a girl from around the age of 5.

My Doctor is a specialist. Very open minded. I have been researching for a very long time. Have take a few test the COGIATI and scored 600 on it . Classification Five, Transsexual. just what I knew all along.
Expert:  Nancy replied 7 years ago.
Yeah, most people say they knew in childhood. I think it's more prominent then than any other time because of the focus on same-sex play.

I am glad you're taking the next step!

I want to keep talking to you, but it's late here, and I am off to bed. Can we continue this tomorrow?
