100 Words About Me:
I have been out full time for the last four years and on HRT for three years and 9 months.At this time the situation between my wife and I ( we are good friends)is to stay together for many different reason. Living full time has had its ups and downs but I would never go back to where I was. My children both grown and married do not want me around their families, I believe that is their loss. I do have the luxury of my son talking to me on the phone, however my daughter will only texts me an that's fine, I know things could be worse. I have a good group of friend that I can depend on when I need to talk along with my therapist. The major hold up on surgery is the fact I had an open heart operation in September 2006. But I feel everything will work out. I have been enjoying life and I am much more at peace with myself.. I lecture in a local college during the semester in there human sexuality classes, which is I find just fantastic. I love to bike, play tennis and golf, enjoy the theater, books, art and just being myself. I am an avid photographer,always have camera with me and just did my first wedding. I realize it has been a blessing that transitioning has come as a natural process for me. I have a great time socializing and spending time with my friends If there is anything else you need please e-mail me. Thanks & Hugs Allyson

Hi Allyson... I love living in Oregon.. although sometimes I feel it would be nice to see the sun as much as you do in Fl. I saw your list of interests, and they pretty much mirror mine... except that mine also including reading (voraciously), gardening (passionately), and cross stitching. I also love to go the Oregon coast, rent a small cottage during storms and sit and watch the rain lashing the ocean as it pounds the rocks while I sit in front a wonderful fire drinking some kind of hot drink. I am now 62 which I can't believe, but I think I have still quite a few decades ahead of me. Wonderful that you wrote me. Stephanie
I saw your profile, Allyson, and I empathize with you , sweety. My 27 year old daughter will only text wiith me also. I have, as you, a group of good friends in and out of the transcommunity so I am not lonely and furthermore I believe eventually my daughter will come around.
Weather? Well, Spring appears to be creeping in after the coldest and snowiest New Jersey Winter in my 26 years livng here. I also fouind transitioning, or maybe better put, living in my true gender very easy and natural and according to those who know me well, it seems illogical I was ever anything but female, and of course I agree.
It's encouiraging to see you are allowed to lecture at a college and I hope other avenues also open for you to speak about human sexuality and maybe gender. One of the amusing things I have found within the transcommunity is the reluctance we have to admit we enjoy sex, and I readily admit I enjoy sex in my true gender, well at least as far as I can appreciate it in my present condition.
