I came out of the closet to myself about a year ago. I have done nothing to transition. I desperately want to start hrt. I think about it all day long.
My wife of 11 years has made it clear she will divorce me if a transition or even discuss my identity, and when I first came out it was clear she was going to succeed in taking my kids away from me in court because I live in a rural community. I love her dearly, and empathize with her plight that she feels I would be dead if I transitioned. I also have intense resentment that I have to choose between her and my own life long dream of being a woman. I am absolutely confused and really just need someone who may know what these shoes look like to hear my story.
You and I share soo much my wife of 38 years told me that 14 years ago! My heart ❤️ goes out to you!
