    I'm in a long term relationship with a cross dresser that became apparent to me after being together for 15yrs.
    I'm suppoto accept & agree to this when I myself am denied an intimate relationship for the last 4 yrs. Am I wrong in wanting to escape?

    Hi Lyn, a warm welcome.

    If you have been denied an intimate relationship for the 4 years because of what's been happening, whether or not it's acceptable is not for me to make a comment on, however, if you feel that no attention has been towards you, then he's decided to make a change, then you too are also entitled to as well.

    I'm worried about your own health and wonder whether you have spoken to anyone about this.

    As your GP about the mental health plan, this entitles to 10 Medicare paid sessions to see a psychologist per year.

    This may have increased due to the conditions we're now in so ask your doctor.

    Like to hear back from you.
