ezs note:  No matter where in the world you are, it's just silly to believe that you can 'go it alone'.  Find a respected licensed psychologist. But be warned: those who would have you believe that they can make you into a 'ex-transgender' is a  QUACK!!!

ezs note: When you are dealing with the daily difficulties of being transgender, it might be a good idea to see a therapist.  When you are struggling  with addiction problems (one estimate is 30 percent) it might be a doubly good idea.  First, make sure the therapist is certified.  Second, make sure that you  are comfortable with her/his methods.  But do it!  You'll be happier, I promise.
