A man who would like to remain anonymous told USA TODAY his story about changes of appearance and problems.
"At the age of 42, I became a transgender woman. Analyzing this decision, I found its origins in childhood, when my grandmother wore different dresses on me and said what a beautiful girl I was. It was the first time I began to see myself as a girl. After 30 years, I understood what I wanted and I decided to change my appearance. "
"Having changed my appearance and transferred several operations, I became Laura for the next 8 years. But later, I noticed that this does not eliminate all ailments."
According to USA TODAY, experts study the behavior of transgender people and in most cases, they highlight some psychological illnesses, such as depression, paranoia, and panic attacks.
"When I was 40 years old, doctors noticed my gender dysphoria. Later, they also said they marked my psychological trauma due to a child injury."
"A few years later, my grandmother died, but my parents learned the story of dresses and my doubts. Of course, my brother and his friends began to make fun of it and haunt me. After that, I realized that I did not want to be a man anymore. I asked God to turn me a girl every night. Why? I just wanted to be safe. I thought that my parents would love me more, if this happens. "
“I can also say that I have never been homosexual. I had several girlfriends and even married one of them. I loved her very much and we had 2 children. I built a great career, but I thought about changing sex from time to time. Being alone at home, I put on my wife's dresses and enjoyed it. I got tired of this uncertainty and made a decision, after all. I started looking for Dr.Paul Walker who helped transgender people in the 80s. Walker said that my childhood injury did not affect my current mental disorders. After that, the doctor recommended me special hormones as well as operations that will help me to reincarnate.
The man divorced his wife and a few days later, the doctors performed the first operation. After that, the man continued to take female hormones and study female psychology. But after 8 years, Laura regretted all the operations, as she wanted to become a man again.
"A little boy with a trauma lived inside. I can say for sure, it was the worst 8 years in my life. I had a happy family and a great career, but I wanted to satisfy my trauma and lost everything," Laura said.
