This is my first real effort to begin my transition. I am pretty shy, so this is a big step. I have a wife and two sons. My wife is not a person that I could share this with. I have thought about transitioning in a somewhat wishful manner, something like crossing a genie and getting three wishes type of thing, for many years. I’ve played with women’s clothing since I was about 12, and I still enjoy it. I have taken hormones and anti-androgen pharmaceuticals on and off for two years and tried the herbal junk for a few years prior to that. I have a real passion for education and I have a small collection of degrees.
