I'm A Mature TranswomanI am a 60-year old transwoman living in Florida. I came out to my wife a year and a half ago. Needless to say, it wasn't what she was expecting to hear. We love each other dearly, but she is struggling to accept that the person she loves does not love the body she has been born with. I came out with a lot of anxiety, as we all do. I truly did expect her to support me and be there as I have done for her, but I'm disappointed and upset that know that I've come to terms with who I really am and I do fell so much peace know that, that it cannot be embraced by the person who means the most to me.
I'm in therapy and she's joined me for join sessions. I know she's trying and I also know I've had so much longer to get used to this, but I'm ready to grow and live as Cate.
