Hello, I have known that I’m different for a very long time. I kept trying to be the “man” my parents wanted me to be. I was finally set free to be who I am January 2020. My wife did not understand at first but did start to accept me as a trans woman, but only for part of the time. I thought I had lost my best friend of 24 years, she told me she needed to reflect and think about it and would contact me when she was ready. My wife allowed me to wear the clothing I wanted to in the house, then eventually around the neighborhood and grocery shopping to feel comfortable. I started hormones in October. My wife became very ill a week ago Sunday and passed away last Thursday. We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary, the Friday before she got ill and it was not Covid-19. My best friend came back into my life about the same time and it was a good thing as I needed someone to help me grieve and she is not accepting me as a Trans Woman and trying to help me with questions I have.
I am here to meet others and get answers to questions that a cis female does not understand the question or have an answer to. In fact she recommended this site to me as another resource. I do know I have a long road ahead of me and with the help of others, it will be a happy journey.
