a discussion

I spoke to my 83 year old mother yesterday about my transition reflections. Nothing is written in stone but she took it in stride and agreed with me that we all need to be happy in life. I told her that in spite of the fact that I love her and the extended family, I will not let their opinion be a factor.

It is only my children who get a say in the process.

It feels very therapeutic to bring something like this up and not get severe backlash but then she's known about me for years now so it's hardly a surprise. Its helped that I brought her along in tiny baby steps.

Plus if I opt to go that route it will only be a social transition and not a medical one which will still give me flexibility on the presentation front.

My life hasn't been easy by any stretch of the imagination, but I still consider myself pretty damn fortunate.
