Some Best Days Of My Life

the day I meet my wife, the day I got married, the days my children were born,the day igot my first logging truck, the days my girls got married, the first day of gender counsiling, the day I walked into the ford dealer as a woman and bought a brand new ford T bird and nobody new the differance, the days I was a Mary kay person and went to meetings and no one knew I wasn,t a women but my directer, and all the day,s I got to live as my real self,  that was some of the really most comfortable days of my life, evan when i had a bad day. It has not been the same since I had to cut my hair, take off the nail polish and cut my nails, hide my breasts and go back to union work for 3 years to finish my retirement hours for my pension.I'm working on finding my way back now but its like starting all over agin and it takes a lt out of you. at least I'm still on hormones and that alone takes alot of the edge off. plus I have a home and a lot of my famly around me almost every day so I'm not lonely, and with my family not bored either there is always somthing going on around here. Pacific northwest is some the most beautiful part of the country to be in, thankyou for being here for us      Dippzie

Having not "walked a mile in your shoes", I can only speculate how this "trade-off" impacts your life. <br />
<br />
Here's the view from the other side of that particular "fence".<br />
<br />
I'm pre-op and have been told I "pass" fairly well for a tall gal. At this point, I answer to NOBODY about my trans-status. That's the good news.<br />
<br />
I'm also broke, on the verge of homelessness, with no family, very few friends, and no reasonable expectation of relief in the foreseeable future.<br />
<br />
And still there are those who seem suprised that the suicide rate is so alarmingly high among transgender people.<br />
<br />
Go figure.

You have so much to be thankful for. Thank you for sharing them with us.<br />
