    When you're a guy a lot of time hair appears to be growing into a mullet or just get's 'thicker and thicker'. Once you get to the 'few inches past the shoulders' mark it ends up being fine.
    I've gone over a year without cutting my hair once, it doesn't work

    That's exactly what I did. Then I trimmed it and it decided to grow even more of a mullet yet only slightly.

    I'm doomed to have short hair :/

    Well, basically had to resort to a complete emotional breakdown to get my parents to listen to me. That was fun.

    On the bright side, I should be starting HRT as soon as possible. Just need to talk to my counselor. Yay n_n I am very excited.

    1 year won't get it past the shoulders. I started growing my hair out at the start of 7th grade, and it didn't make it to my shoulders until halfway through 8th grade.

    I really feel like I deserve a second chance on this HRT thing.

    I should really get in contact with someone who knows what they're talking about, and can tell me the risks of doing HRT.

    I'm pretty sure my sister lied to me.

    She made it sound as if nothing good came out of it. Like, there were literally no benefits.

    I'm aware of some of the risks that come with HRT, but I haven't really read any problems people have had going on HRT.

    I really need to get in contact with someone about this. Then it just comes down to deciding to do it right away, or wait a little longer to see where I'm at.

    I've actually heard people say they wish they were trans / wish their kids will be trans.

    What the actual fuck. What kind of horrible person would want their child to be trans?

    It was in Chat Threads until just recently, so that's probably why you're only just seeing it.

    Generally the reason people don't have problems is because HRT is the solution to the problem.

    Sure, it doesn't fix everything, but it sure as hell changes a lot about you. Mentally and physically.

    Yeah, a gal I know who went through it mentioned how it was essentially a second puberty. But considering what it did, pretty dumb to say there are no benefits. Talk to a doctor.

    Even if she's right, the estrogen/testosterone isn't for physical appearance. It's required by your brain. Your brain was washed with estrogen/testosterone in the womb and now it can't properly function without it. The dysphoria transsexual people feel isn't actually psychological--it's the physiological result to your brain not being able to properly utilize neurotransmitters because you're missing your sex-specific mood hormones.

    Even if the HRT doesn't change your body at all, it will do wonders for your depression.

    (And it will anyway. She's wrong. It helps A LOT. I've had friends that have gone from completely male-looking to completely female-looking without surgery just from HRT)

    This.
    HRT has done far more for me than any of the various anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications that I've been on throughout the years.

    The physical changes are just an added benefit.

    Yeah, although for some people (especially older folk), it can't do as much as is desired.

    I also find it hard to find videos on youtube that have transitions from MtF after a year to 2 years. Everyone always seems to post videos when they've only been on it after like 8 months or so.

    Is this common? I don't think I'm missing my sex specific mood hormones.

    This has been the biggest concern for me. I'm forced to wait until I'm 18, so I'm afraid my results won't be nearly as good as if I had started when I was 15, as I had wanted.

    I don't think you have too much to be concerned about. Obviously the younger you start the better, but even starting at around 18 is extremely early. A large portion of trans people don't start until later in their life. Also remember that male puberty doesn't actually end until you're around age 25. If you begin transitioning before your puberty is finished, you shouldn't be concerned with too much. Once your puberty ends, it won't make a huge difference when you start.

    My family already knows I have depression, and I'm already taking meds for it. They make me more energized and a little more out-going.

    But to be honest, one of the things I'm looking forward too is the physical changes.

    I was referring more to old old, like in your 50s, but it's best to start as early as possible.

    Isn't it closer to 22?
    There are so many people who wait until they're retired to even tell anybody and I think that's really sad. Even sadder is that I saw some comments 'thread' on an NHS site and it was full of transwomen in their 50s-70s talking about how their GPs hadn't taken them seriously, wouldn't refer them to any specialists and told to "Think about how their wives/children/grandchildren would feel and how much you're hurting them"
    That worried me to all hell.
    Still does.
