Living part time has been that solution for me and, while it is not perfect, I also know with more certainty than ever that I will never transition. I won't because I don't feel I need to in order to treat my dysphoria and because there are always compromises to be made regardless which path is chosen in this life. The main difference is that I have adjusted to the devil I know.
I have come to that place where anxiety over being transgender no longer holds me prisoner because I understand myself and how my dysphoria impacts my psyche. One cannot live indefinitely in repression and so I just accept the fact that I am like this and get on with my life.
As I age I see my body more as a shell that contains a spirit full of thoughts, emotions and creative power. These are all qualities independent of the physical.
Reading the comments on the latest Crossdreamers article by Lisa Mullin reminded me how much passion there is over this issue and rightfully so I suppose since it has caused so many to suffer. The fact that we can debate is because so much solid information is missing which becomes more incumbent on you to be happy with your own life and with whatever decisions you have taken.
The so called "experts" working in this field are skating on thin ice most of the time anyway.
