I maintained my “deep, dark secret” for 55 years of life, 32 years of marriage, and the birth of five beautiful children. I never told anyone that I was, and had always been female. But that day, December 7, 2009, I found that I could no longer manage this on my own. I had to tell someone or this torture was going to destroy me.
My wife and I were driving and I forced myself to tell her that the man she had married was not the person she had thought. I was terrified…I couldn’t breathe…how would she react…would she accept me…would this be the end of the most wonderful relationship of my life. She took my hand and waited patiently for me to say what I so needed to say. I told her that throughout my life, I had always believed that God had made a mistake when he created me. That He had given me the body of a male…but the soul of a female.
Everything was quiet for a moment.
And then my beautiful wife…the love of my life…patted my hand and said, “Well, that explains a lot!”
