About Me

THANK YOU! for your interest in this subject matter and in my story. INTENT: #support for the #significant_others of #transsexuals and #transgender, to #advocate the necessity of being your authentic self, and to share information with others. By this, I hope to support your own journey, or add to your understanding of the journey of someone you know. ABOUT ME: A 45 year old #heterosexual woman, divorced w/children, I met Jack and fell in love. Six years into our relationship, he confided his secret desire--Jack wanted to be a woman. Before his disclosure, I had no reason to suspect his interest. It was a shocking surprise! It was the decade of the 1990's. Little information was available to help ME understand 'Why' and 'What next". Not only was Jack in transition, but by virtue of the circumstance, so was I. Guided by my heart, I began a journey of my own. Stepping out of my comfort zone I challenged my attitudes and belief systems, as well as, my own sexual orientation to help me decide 'Do I stay, or do I go"?

The transparent window on a dark closet's wall... 7727 views and counting...

Writing about a subject that for many people is still "behind closed doors" in the U.S., I am gratified to find, blog views are coming in from all around the world: Europe, UK, Russia, Canada, China, South Korea, Ireland, Germany, France, and South America. This is motivating. When I give public open mic readings to audiences of the "average man/woman on the street", I have often been approached by people who say, "My brother did that." Or, "My wife left me for a woman." Or, "I know a person at work that changed." Most end their statements with "I don't get it." but each, wants to talk. I learn their interest is more than curiosity, there is a desire to understand. To me, this is proof that education, information, and conversation needs to be had. I hope, ultimately, it shows a willingness to want to know, to change old ideas, and adjust perceptions. Thank you for your views! Your views are encouraging a transparent window onto what has been a dark closet's wall!
