My gosh, that can be dangerous for health, because you would have to take so many hormones to change your appearance and hormones can cause so many problems. But I do know of one young person in Alberta who had this done. That made me realize just how much those types of people could suffer. At one time I would've thought very negatively about such an operation but now understand how terrible it must be to always want to do women's things when you are expected by society to do men's things. I would hate to be expected to do things that were not in accordance with my own sex. It must be a really miserable life.
Hopefully you realize also, that many people still look at these things very negatively and often people do lose total connection with their families (even their own kids) after this happens, so before considering it, if you have kids I think you should get their feelings about it and decide whether their feelings are strong enough to override your own depressed feelings or not. It doesn't mean you have to change things. You just need to be prepared for what might happen later. It would probably be a good idea to relocate after that as well, and start an entirely new life.
