Re: Gender confusion/dysphoria - how do other people deal?

@DruidChild wow that last sentence - ".it's kind of a paradox...I can't survive until things improve but things can't improve unless I survive..." That is incredibly powerful.

Have you ever had a look at other forms of therapy? A bit of a broad question.. But I used to struggle with a couple of the Psychs I had around sexuality/identity etc... My challenges were a little different..I was dealing with sexuality purely.

For me it was transpersonal therapy that won out - but there's whole bunch of different counsellor's around who specialise in different things; sometimes GP's etc don't have all the contact details. Anyway just thought I would send you that brain wave, something to think about another day when you're feeling up to it Smiley Happy

Re: Gender confusion/dysphoria - how do other people deal?

I kinda hate being gender fluid atm. Like today I'm female but I don't like it and always want to be male. Sometimes I'm cool with it but I feel wrong today.

That sounds really frustrating @redhead! Is there anything you could to feel more masculine today if that's how you want to feel? Gender can be painful Smiley Sad

Re: Gender confusion/dysphoria - how do other people deal?

I need to find someone to talk to about what I brought up last week, but I don't know who.. I'm not sure I can verablly talk about it, because it's silly and was all my fault. Like I can write it down but say it out loud... not really...

Kids helpline is out, case manager out. I still don't have a GP or anyone else. hmmmmmmmmmm

Re: Gender confusion/dysphoria - how do other people deal?

Hmm @loves netball what about writing an email to Eheadspace? They usually reply pretty quick and then you've gotten everything out that you need to share without having to wait in their stupid queue

Re: Gender confusion/dysphoria - how do other people deal?

Thanks for the suggestion @j95 but the two times I've used eheadspace they've told me to stick to kids helpline. And I did kind of talk to KHL about it a year ago on web, but web doesn't really help. I probably didn't word things right before sorry. So I have tried to talk to people via online chats etc but writing it doesn't make it anybetter. So I guess I need to talk to someone verbally but I don't think any of my current supports are right and it sucks soooo much, because I don't know what to do anymore
