Re: Do You Have Dysphoria?
Species and gender. I hadn't really thought much about it, but at the point of wishing I could escape being bound to a human form, yes, it's there. It would be nice to actually be able to shapeshift into the beings I become, yes? But in this form I can affect physical reality, so obviously there's a tradeoff.
In addition, my gender identity doesn't stay stable, though I have had experiences in dreams and subsequently outside of them in which I'm fully equipped with a male form. Dealing with that once it's brought up isn't easy; usually we have the presence of mind to know that it's temporary and that the alternative (physical transition to male) is permanent.
Third thing: Being physically female, mentally male, with the body seeming to transition on its own in the male direction. I am also experiencing this, due to naturally high testosterone levels...not sure what I can do about it other than go on (more) female hormones. Because of this, though; there's been concern over what to do if it continues to progress...
