Am I Transgender Enough?

78741754.jpg

How do you know you're transgender or ready for transition? In this episode we answer a question a lot of listeners have asked. Do the thoughts and feelings I have make me transgender? What if I'm not ready for that? Am I really transgender enough to transition? Other trans people I've seen seem so much more advanced than me. On this episode we'll discuss how to deal with dysphoria and questions about whether transition is right for you.

Here's a link to the DSM V. This one's big and expensive.  Don't buy it, but if you see it in the reference section of your library and have an hour to kill, it's fun to flip through.  "Gender Dysphoria" is what we usually talk about on TGR, but the whole book is pretty cool, according  to Kath.
