11)"How do you manage dysphoria?"
Well, I guess it kind of depends on the situation. What most transguys get dysphoric about is that certain time of the month, but not me… anymore, anyway. Think of it like this: it's like getting a gunshot wound in your junk, slapping a bandaid on it and going about life for an entire week as per usual. Now that is incredibly manly!
But other things that I've done when I'm feeling upset and dysphoric- is to listen to alot of music. For some reason bands like Blue Stahli and Billy Talent make me feel worse though...So I usually end up listening to the soundtrack from Across the Universe or just Dubstep. Or sleep...Or just so simple exercise.
Because I'm really self conscious about my hips,thighs, and butt. My chest is small and I don't really pay much attention to it...Hah. I don't really have bottom dysphoria much, but I always point out to myself, my big hips, breasts, girly facial structure, voice, thighs, curves, all of that. But yeah for those days I'm usually just sleeping it off or whoring my lonelyitis on DeviantArt.
Of course, no matter what I physically change about myself, at the end of the day I still feel different, which blows. I just have to keep reminding myself that no matter what, I'm 100% male- even if I'm missing a few things.
I just try to go on with my life… although ice cream helps. I fucking love ice cream.
