Thanks for your response. I’m not going to pretend it’s easy, life is tough some days but I’m not going to give up now. I’m still some way off HRT, it might not happen until.next year now but I’ve waited 40-odd years to let Melanie out, a few more months won’t hurt and they’ll pass so quickly.
I still have crises of confidence, that I won’t “pass” or won’t be good enough to pass the counselling course. There are days when I can’t move for pain or that I can’t stop being sick. Then there are days when I feel so alive, sexy, feminine and exciting. When I just have to wear my best lingerie, stockings and a dress and it feels SO RIGHT. That I don’t care what anyone thinks, says or does.
I am so glad that I have supportive friends I can turn to for a virtual hug and a girly chat whenever I need one.
Xx from Melanie
