Definition - What does Dysphoric mean?

Dysphoric people often experience conflict over their gender identity. People who are gender dysphoric often feel as if they are not the gender that they physically appear to be. An example is when a woman who has a vagina and other physical female traits may feel that she is actually a male. The individual may strongly desire to have a male body and male identity. Feeling that your body does not represent your true identity can cause many internal conflicts and emotional turmoil. Many people feel trapped within their bodies and experience anxiety, depression, and severe depression. Dysphoria at its core is a feeling of dissatisfaction, anxiety, and restlessness.
