Why do you want to live as a female?

What's the ocd part?

I'm transgender but it doesn't really have anything to do with my mental illness. You can talk to a doctor about transitioning medically. You should only transition if you feel like it's the right step for you and you know you want it. It can be scary to transition because of how other people would react but for me it's been worth it. Even though I've had loved ones abandon me, being my authentic self has been more important.

I feel like I was born in the wrong body all of my life I'm 31 years old
And you have ocd? How does it show itself? Some people have intrusive thoughts related to their sexuality.

I think if you work it through with the doctors
then people will accept you

Have you got help for the intrusive thoughts - like medication and therapy? If those symptoms lessen, maybe things will be clearer.
