"Dream-Dream=Dream all you want - I dream of still medication of hormones, would you help me out I really really dream of having breasts an less body hair which I wax (when I have the bucks) and shave.
I have questioned my gender since I was 8 or 9, would rather play with my sisters than my brother. Now that I am 65 yrs old I feel that to be a full time woman would relieve this burden I have carried. I have visited several therapist over my life ... with no success as to "why" I am this way ... my loving wife knows but does not understand. This is were I really need some help in my relationship with her.
Try reading some books as far as understanding your feelings. "She's Not There" by Jenny Boylan. All of the stories I have read about people like us I found we have a common denominator. Find a doctor you can talk to who is familiar with this topic. I have gone in with my wife, children and brother and some friends. I wanted to make sure everyone understood this is not a choice. Everyone is with me in this. Thank God.
Life does throw you for a curve if you are like us. Getting a spouse to understand is so difficult. I myself am in the same boat with you. My whole life I have struggled to find answers but finally have accepted that it is just who I am and I will never change or do I want to change. For now I will continue to hide but for how long is any one's guess. I realize that one day the proverbial cat will come out of the bag and then I will have to deal the best that I can. I would love to talk with you some more and gain insight from your experiences too. Thanks for being a friend and looking forward to chatting with you sometime. Kisses Lizzie
Hi Bobbie, thank you for the friend invite! Nice to meet you here, and yes, I have moved to California, last September. But, I'll probably keep a place in the IL and MO PE groups, at least for awhile, as I still have friends back there. I hope you're doing well! Take care, and thanks again!
For reasons I do not know, I cannot find your original text to reply. I was wanting to check if you had written 'earthquake' as singular or plural. We have had two earthquakes, one on September the 4th last year and the more recent one on February 22nd which was the more serve and did the most damage. It is recorded as being the most violent earthquake ever recorded anywhere with ground forces of 2g's, up and sideways, two directions; people fall over not to mention a few buildings.
I am fine; the area that I live in has not suffered any damage through different ground than some parts of the city which suffered extensive liquefaction.
Again, my thanks for your thoughts, Marita.
I 've honestly never heard Saginaw referred to as a cool, friendly town before. It's okay. I've lived here my whole life. It's got its highs and lows like every other town, I suppose. My feeling is that life is what you make it no matter where you are and your experience of a place has less to do with the place itself than what is going on inside of you.
