Well .....................

Do I wish I wasn't transgender? Transexual?

That is an emphatic NO! I am who i am and that is what makes me me and makes me happy.

Do I wish things could be different and my life, in that respect could be easier? Of course.

Being born in the wrong body is tough. Feeling inside so girlie and feminine and then being interacted with totally the opposite way (as a man) because of the outside wrapping.

Being transgender is like being trapped in the wrong body and always searching for the way out.

Asa transexual I know the way out for me, is surgery. And hopefully someday, when the time is right I will have the support and the financial where-with-all to become whole.

In the mean time I am going to be happy and accept all the things (wonders and other) that this life brings my way. God loves me, He made me the way I am so ... yes, I am happy and accepting of myself.

Others may see my being me as idiosyncrasies or even out of character, but that's fine. I'll survive, in fact I'll thrive on showing the best me I can.

Do I wish things were different, well yes. But I am not going to let that stop me or cause me to be fearful in any way.

I'm gonna be me every way, every day!
