I am some way into the autumn of life. I have lived much of my life in a cupboard. Knowledge and help were unknown in my younger days, I felt very much alone,afraid of my feelings,and of the consequences of being discovered.

I have visitedyour website fairly frequently and I plucked up courage a few months age to ring your number. I spoke for some time to Katie outlining my life to date. I do not think that at my age I would wish surgery nor do I think I would easily shed ” my shell ” which is alas very masculine. I read your description of the gender spectrum and, given my age and physique I am drawn to the possibility that low dose hormones may bring me some peace and contentment with myself.

I do, however, wonder how outwardly noticeable such treatment,if approved,may be.

I would welcome your thoughts.
