    being different from other people is ok

    because you gain more power then others of the different ways that you are different. Also by being different gives you a lot more courage then before you were maybe normal or who you were before you changed to become different.

    I am physically different in numerous ways.

    I won't list them all because most will never believe me but I will say more core body temperature runs around low to high 96degrees. If it hits normal core temperature range of 98 I feel sick with cold like symptoms. Any others out there like this?

    How Do I See Myself

    I'm different. In one way I'm there in others I'm so far away. The mind is the 'leader' of the body. The mind decides and sometimes the heart decides. I'm modest, some might say prim and proper. I'm also feminine, adventourous and lovable. The real me is somewhere in between...
