I’m transgender from male to female but my grandmother is the only one who doesn’t know

DEAR DEIDRE: I STARTED the male to female conversion a year ago and it has been really good so far.

My grandma was recently diagnosed with cancer and I'm not sure how long she will live - I don't want to stress her out

My grandma was recently diagnosed with cancer and I’m not sure how long she will live – I don’t want to stress her out

But I’m really close to my grandmother and she’s the only person in my family that I don’t know.

She was recently diagnosed with cancer and I am not sure how long she will live.

Over the past year, my focus has been on social transformation so I’ve grown my hair, changed my name, and started using the pronoun she/she.

I am 22 years old and Gran is 79 years old.

My immediate family has been very supportive.

All issues receive a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.

The next stage is that I will need to make a medical transition and then it will be obvious to me that I am changing.

I don’t want to stress my grandmother, but I also want her to know the real me.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are clearly a very caring person who thinks of your grandmother first.

Whatever gender you are, you are still the person she fell in love with growing up.

As you said, your transition will soon become apparent, so trying to hide what you’re going through can be more difficult and potentially hurtful for her.

Rules-based honesty is the best route, but get professional help on how to deal with this.
