Alright, this one will definitely be short. I just had a memory pop up in my head after scrolling a bit on my post history. I passed the post about Leelah Alcorn, and it jogged my memory of that time. Years before, at the ripe old age of 37, I gave myself an ultimatum. And that ultimatum was to start transition within 5 years, or live as male, and possibly kill myself. A series of factors, including crippling gender dysphoria made me finally make the choice to attempt transition. What age was I? 42 (the greatest of all things). So, I made it within the 5 year time limit, but barely, lol. Either way, I think I probably would have transitioned, even if it was outside the 5 year window. So, that’s my quick memory. Transition is probably one of the greatest things I have ever done, and I am no where near done! Bring on the next year!
