I'm in the UK. I hope you can give me some advice.
From my earliest years I have dressed in female clothes, this has brought me comfort, arousal, happiness and comfort.
I have been married for 16 years and my wife and I love each other very much. She tells me that she doesn't mind my "hobby" but I always feel awkward when dressed with her.
I seem to go through a yearly cycle of repressing everything and then getting to a point where I can't restrain my inclination to wear my clothes/make-up etc.
My wife keeps saying she is happy with my dressing but I am sure she is not. I don't want to hurt her or do anything which will destroy our marriage but I feel as though I am living with a bursting dam behind me.
I can't ask you whether I am transsexual or a transvestite but if you could give me some advice I'd be very grateful.
