Hi, I am a closeted mtf trans teen and I need to find ways to handle my dysphoria that wont be obvious to my unsupportive and transphobic family. The only things I managed to do is choose my new name and break away from most of my male side. I can't take hormones or anything so its tough. Would you have any ideas? Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Hey! I’m always happy to help! I’m a trans guy, ftm, so I don’t have any first hand experience dealing with mtf dysphoria. So, if any of my followers have any tips for anon here, please send ‘em in!
I have read from some trans girls that some small things that can help with dysphoria are things like taking a steamy hot shower or bath, doing your make up (in private if you’re not out yet), and pampering yourself in general. If body hair is a place of significant dysphoria for you, you can usually shave most places (arms, armpits, and legs) without raising much suspicion. You can say the shaving supplies are for facial hair, and if someone notices the lack of body hair you can say you lost a bet or something.
I’ve found that when I’m feeling dysphoric, getting cozy in some pajamas with some tea and a pile of blankets, and watching some Youtube or Netflix can help. I recommend checking out some trans girl’s Youtube channels online, as there will probably be some more tips for dealing with transfeminine specific dysphoria.
