I have a trans woman friend who changed her name and is undergoing hormonal treatment (I must say, very successfully; she also did laser hair removal on the face with remarkably good results). She explained to me how important it is to "pass" as your chosen gender. So if a man wears dresses and makeup, the man would still not pass as a woman for a number of reasons including his deep voice. Hormone treatment increases the chances of passing as your chosen, self-identified gender.

Confirmed dx: Bipolar I w/psychotic features, since 2009 or earlier
Suspected dx: Narcolepsy type 2, since 2022

Current rx:

Geodon 40 mg (for mood)
Seroquel 75 mg (for sleep)
Gabapentin 1200 mg (against extrapyramidal side effects from the ^)
Dextroamphetamine 5 mg (for narcolepsy)

Past rx:
Way too many to list
