Many transgender sites include personal stories written by trans people and their family members. Reading other people's stories can be very helpful to people who feel alone and isolated. Please keep in mind that personal experiences vary widely; no story should be read as a universal "truth" about transgenderism. Some personal accounts may include information about hormone dosages and herbal masculinization/feminization; we strongly advise consultation with a trans-competent medical professional prior to taking hormones or herbal supplements, to avoid potentially dangerous side effects.
