    Aww thanks - I have a few female clothes in a box right at the back under my bed, you'd have to pull everything else out from under there so I'm pretty sure no one will find them. In my little collection I have mostly tops, so they hold down really small, and I don't have anything big like jeans, I've only bought female clothes for the top half of me because I have enough trouble finding mens jeans that fit so I'm pretty sure finding female trousers would be almost impossible. Plus it would mean spending alot of time trying on jeans in a shop which I see as an almost impossibility.
    you should put a lock on that box to be safe and do the shirts and stuff fit? because you dont have the boobs to fill them, pm me please, i promise I wont tell anyone who you are , I have some info ull want

    Well everything I've bought so far fits reasonably well, although it can be a bit hit and miss. I must admit I found one top that fits perfectly and doesn't seem to have too much boob space inside so there isn't loads of material left hanging down from my chest.

    DOA, I just PM'd you

    Never did Eddie Izzard any harm.
    I think it's worth pointing out that there's a difference between a transvestite and transgender person. Eddie Izzard is a man by both sex and gender. As far as I know he considers himself to be a man. He just likes to wear women's clothes sometimes. Same for Chris from Hollyoaks (if he were real anyway).

    Well apparently Eddie Izzard styles himself as a leisbian inside a mans body. All my friends keep meantioning him whenever transgender issues come up and tbh I'm sick of it, he's a comedian he puts on an act and part of his act is his gender, I can't help thinking it's all an act with him (although I think I'm wrong). It's just hard when people say ... "well its easy being trans cos Eddie Izzard is and he seems to manage fine" ... Yes maybe he does, but we only see him on stage and that hardly shows the years of pain that many TG/TS people seem to go through.

    Maybe Eddie Izzard is an ambiguous case (according to wikipedia he's described himself as all sorts of things), but it's still clear he doesn't live completely as a woman. And it's still worth pointing out that not all men who dress like women want to actually be women.

    Oh you're totally right, I remember hearing about Eddie Izzard then seeing him on TV in a suit and tie and getting all confused.

    And your right about men dressing up. transgender is such a complicated word (not all transgender people dress up), some people dress up to go out on a night, some people only dress up when thier alone and some people dress up all the time. I think its a question of why you want to dress up. I want to dress up because it makes me feel more femanine and brings me closer to that side of my life ... in a way it makes me feel more intouch with my mind - maybe that sounds a little wierd lol

    I can't offer any advice really, but I have been friends with a number of transgendered people and I know it can be very difficult. I also know how much happier they've been once they've begun the process. I was a bit sheltered and it was a shock the first time I got to know someone who had been through it but to be honest who they had been been completely irrelevant to who they were.

    I wish you luck x

    I read your first post, and thought "that was me" 3 years ago. Now I'm legally and socially female. (And I'd like to think that I do apperance-wise too, lol) Whatever you do, never run away from what your instincts deep down tell you to do - your instincts will guide you through the doubts and difficult times.
    If you can find a safe environment (perhaps people in a separate social circle) to 'test out' your new role, where you can be safe to pull out and not be socially bound to people, perhaps by joining a group as a woman, or simply dressed in a more feminine manner, for example. You can also figure out what you want to do - some will go the whole way with the hormones, surgery, etc, others will mix, match or not make any medical changes - it's all up to you.
    Feel free to PM me, I can give information on support groups, counselling and healthcare options if necessary.
