Social anxiety and gender dysphoria
Hi, when I was a child I developed gender dysphoria, basically I feel as if I should have been born female and am extremely unhappy and depressed with being male. I also have social anxiety problems and with my gender dysphoria they are very bad.
For example, when I am in a room with lots of people, my heart rate becomes very fast, I feel like I'm burning, sweat starts pouring down my face and body, every little thing irritates me, and I become depressed and hopeless. Also, when I am talking to people that are shorter than me, I become very anxious and uncomfortable. I also become anxious and uncomfortable around women.
Is there any medication I can use to control this? I was offered:
Which medication would work best for my anxiety issues?
Also, are there any medications to treat gender dysphoria? I have already tried SSRIs and illegal drugs but the dysphoria persists. I wish I was dead.
