    So I Am A Girl Now....so What?.....school Days And More

    It's getting to the point

    that whenever I get dressed in my day -to-day boy clothes, it feels like a part of me dies a little. I now begin most every day in quiet reflection of the choices that I've made and the ones not yet faced.

    There have been few instances where,

    out of the blue, it hit me how much I've changed. I looked back at how I was months earlier and noticed that I felt different inside. It must have been evident because people on the outside treat me as a woman. When I first went out in public I vowed that I was going to live...

    Am I Too Old?

    I’ve been asking myself, am I too old to transition?  I think it’s a fair and honest question.  There are certain realities to which I must admit.  First, I am sixty-one years old.  I don’t feel it and I hope I don’t look it.  I know I don’t act it.  I take care...

    Why is it so hard to come out?

    Why can't I just say the words to my family "I'm a woman and always have been."? Why do I even have to? It shouldn't be like that. A cisgendered person doesn't have to come out and say they're cis. So why should I have to say I'm trans? I wish I could just walk through my Dad's...

    I am at work today dressed completely

    as a woman. Well I'm wearing all woman's clothing. Women's jeans and tee shirt. Women's socks and shoes(athletic). Also panties and pantyhose. So no one is going to know unless they look closely. The thing is I feel so alive. Probably more alive than I ever felt.

    I’m taking liberty in saying that

    for some trans women, getting a vagina is like climbing Mt. Everest. It can be a long, grueling, and expensive climb to the top, but in the end you feel like you can conquer the world. Others know they can climb if they want, but choose not to. Still others unfortunately can’t...
