I hope that everyone is better off than they were at the beginning of 2016.
When people who were frequently on the forum disappear there is some question of why they have left and if are they okay. I want to report that I haven't been better.
I have been full time for about a year, everywhere but in my home when my live-in granddaughter is about. Otherwise, I'm just a woman in the crowd, buying groceries, shoveling snow, dealing with city hall, dining in restaurants, etc. My name and gender have been corrected on federal and state identifications. I'm slogging through correcting the dozens of other places like licenses, certifications, registrations, living trust .... it seems to go on forever. I am valued and active in a local church, social, and activist groups. I am comfortable in my own skin.
I crossed the line ... I am and will be for the rest of my life, a woman, and it's wonderful.
