My life was a struggle at first to happiness.At age 7,knew I was feminine wanting to be one of the girls.Remember wanting to play dress up with my female cousins,did not mom distracted me for some reason.I tried to suppress the feelings that worked at first.My mom knew there was something wrong watching it watching me grow up.Dad ignored it it.Finally at age 39,began electrolysis for hair removal and started growing my hair out at age 38.Ex wife  knew something was going on at first.It also was shopping for women’s clothing and shoes.I was wearing women’s clothing when she was gone also.It was after I turned 40,things came out,Ex wife found my stash of women’s clothing  and shoez.She was frustrated and left.We ended up divorcing on good terms.During the divorce I did come out to my kids,daughter was 18 and son was 16 at the time.They adjusted day by day that dad was going to be much happier.My family,it took time for them to adjust and accept it.Friends accepted it and were on for support.Work,it was good right away making a coming out letter.Other family members knew I was hurting inside and were glad I did come out.Seen a therapist,diagnosed me with gender dysphoria.Finally after the divorce was final,completely purged my male wardrobe and began my new life as Heather not looking back.My son and daughter whom are 21 and 19 now see me much happier including my family and friends including co workers and boss.A healthy relationship with my girlfriend Ashley which will be 2 years in Febuary of next year.My ex wife and I still talk to this day,I understand she could not deal with this at all

 

Yours is a positive story and I am happy for you Heather. So many of us struggle internally and do not take the steps you have taken to embrace the real you. God Bless.
