DEAR DEIDRE: RECENTLY, I went out dressed as a woman for the first time in my life.
My wife had taken our two kids to the park and I walked around outside for an hour. It felt great.

I am 33 and my wife is 29. I have been cross-dressing since about 15.
I cannot ignore this side of my life.
It is part of who I am. I feel so magical when I am dressed as a woman that I can’t fight the urge to want to do it more and more.
My family still don’t know. I fear telling my wife too because she would not approve.
The lack of private time during lockdown has been agony.
I don’t want to lose my wife and kids over this but I am becoming increasingly desperate.
DEIDRE SAYS: It is an agonising secret and you can’t just wish away these feelings.
I’m afraid your wife may find your revelation threatening and distressing so get help to find the right words to start explaining to her.
