    Hi I am Christy and I am a pre transitioned mtf. I knew I was different back when I was a child. I am now 30. I have been married and divorced with one daughter. I am currently dating someone but I am in the closet still with them and my family. I have always felt more like a woman than a man all my life but never had a chance to express myself due to the ridicule I would receive. But at this point in my life I am ready to be who I truly am inside although I have one catch. I am so afraid that my ex wife would try to use my transition against me to take away my daughter. That one fear is what holds me from being 100% open and it is tearing me up inside because my inner woman is truly restless.

      Hi Christy,
      <p style=”text-align: left;”>Warm welcome! I am new here too. Have you thought of talking to a lawyer to see if your ex can really do that?</p>

        I actually hadn’t really thought about that but I will definitely be looking into it. Thank you so much!

      Christy:

      I suspect that there are many here that understand your situation with your ex-wife and daughter. It seems to be potentially a mine field. Hopefully some can share their experiences, plus and minus, as lack of success can often teach us as much as success can. It may also help to seek some legal advice as geographically we are a bit of a patch work. It often comes down to exactly who is doing the judgements and their slant on the trans community.

      So, a couple of things:

      If you would like to search for other members in Kentucky, click on Social in the menu and then Member Directory. That will take you to the search utility.

      I encourage you to complete your Profile page. It is a living document as you can update it as things change, your journey moves forward, etc. It is also a great way for other members to understand your situation and think about how they can help or support…

      HI Christy,
      Wow do I “get it”. Sounds like we share some background. I’m still unfortunately shy enough to not know the direction of my journey. I need to relax from the excitement and the anxiety. Hope there is a friend here that can help share info on the who,what,when,where and how life book. 😉
      Hope your burden eases for you.

        Thank you Case! I am sorry to hear about your shyness and anxiety. I want you to know I always have an ear to listen and give any advice I can. I hope both of our journeys become so much easier and happier.
