We all have struggles to overcome, times we feel we just don't fit in and seek out the company of other like minded people. My struggle is a bit different in many respects but still just a struggle like others have theirs however I have really changed my mind and thoughts about things.
I should be able to "fit in" with people like me one would assume but I simply don't. Other than 1 thing in common there is nothing about me that connects with the others, not interests, attitudes, aesthetics, music, style, etc. to therapy that seemed to push HRT and/or SRS at times a bit to hard. (something I realized after many talks with my best friend) That also does NOT or will NOT ever define me. I am myself, period.
I will no longer seek to classify or label myself, not by assumed characteristics through groups of similar people or anything else. (further negating myself into smaller and smaller marginal groups) I am not male or female, I am not gay, straight, trans, etc. I am not tall or short, I'm not skinny nor am I overweight so what in the hell am I? very simply I'm a human being, like everyone else!.
