When did you figure out some thing was off about your gender identity.

I was around 8 years old right before I started puberty when I felt something was really off with my inner and outer view of myself. I was not able to figure out what exactly though I knew it was something with my gender. I hated the thought of my voice deepening and getting facial hair/ hair all over my body. I finally stumbled across an article in my late teens/early twenties about transgender. This article fueled my search more and built up the courage to see a therapist and an endocrinologist to help me.

What gift would you like to receive on the upcoming holidays?
