Thank you for that thoughtful reply, DeeAnn. I am so grateful places like this exist. If it weren’t for this website and other trans sites I really would have given up long ago. It’s still a struggle but at least I have you all to lean on. I want others here to know I too go through these things. I am very honored to be a part of this community. My hope is that someday I will feel that without any shame and be more than just honored but even proud of it.
