Back from vacation.

The last week has been a time of wonderful healing and emotional growth for me and my mother.

I am no longer her son, I am now her daughter. That is awesome.

To be honest I didn’t do much touristy when in Florida, I did go to the beach to collect shells but that is the only touristy thing I did when there.

I was so busy enjoying my family and the setting that I had plenty occupying me.

On Monday my mother had the opportunity to meet Cynthia. She is a wonderful woman and her acceptance of me is a gift I will always cherish.

Far too often a transsexual turns to their family for love and support, but are turned away because of various lame reasons. Most reasons boil down to ‘I am selfish and I do not want to change’.

The suicide rates of transpersons is staggering. 50% attempt suicide by their early 20’s. For most of us it is literally a matter of ‘Transition or Die’! For a family member to turn their back on a transsexual family member is to say ‘go kill yourself’, and many of us do.

Thank you for your continued support and love. It could possibly be the one thing keeping me alive.

yay!! I'm so glad your mother was open and welcoming to Cynthia. That is awesome. You are right, so many do not get that support.
