I guess i knew about age 8 but did not know the word to describe me. I played with boys and did boy thing but i never felt comfortable doing it either. My best memories of growing upwas when i played with the girls. I ENJOYED PLAYING HOUSE, ENJOYED BEING THE nurse in doctor nurse game, enjoyed playing with Barbies. I ENJOYED LEARNING TO COOK, SEW AND IRON AND TAKE CARE OF HOUSE INSIDE. Those are happy memories for me. I finally learned i was trans when i met a trans woman in high school. We never had sex but she still taught me the art of being woman. I was16 she was first person i was ever *out* to. Being trans and learning yourself is not easy at any time and it still goes on. It always will. I live as woman but am still learning myself. I am happy and comfortable. We may take long time tolearn the term for how we feel but that is only the start it is NOT the end step only the first.
