It depends: Your course depends on how much you're suffering with this problem, your personal medical & mental health history, family history, substance abuse, etc. Some people become very depressed and suicidal; others do whatever they can to appear like the gender with which they identify but pursue no other treatment. Some are bullied because of their differences, and this intensifies depression/anxiety.
