Heather, it is so great to hear how things have worked out for you! That level of understanding and support you got from family, friends and employer made a lot of difference, didn’t it? SO much less stress to deal with, when transitioning presents quite enough other challenges. Many of our sisters have to battle a much less accepting environment on their journey. It’s too bad that your (ex) wife couldn’t handle your coming out. Her feelings are at least understandable, because we (those of us who were married when coming out) do sort of change the terms of the “deal” in a way many wives cannot adjust to. I am glad to hear that she has accepted you enough to at least remain on good terms.
