I have recently discovered that one of the things I am most proficient at is building closets for myself. I had thought I was out and past that.
I’ve realized I’m in the process of building a new closet around myself. It’s all nice and framed, just waiting for drywall.
Tonight my sister held me and I almost cried. She saw my clothes and knew the pain that I’m in now.
My other sister was in a bad place too. I bought the drinks and she kept me company.
Transition is hard. Dealing with the things you did to keep yourself alive is hard.
Thank you for tonight.
New Yorker Christine Jorgensen was born George William Jorgensen Jr.
She fought in the US army during World War 2.

When she came back, she became the cover story of New York Daily which made her a household name.
Before I came out, I struggled with my appearance a lot. At the time I wrote this I didn’t have the confidence to be myself. I would stay up for days at a time, doing whatever I could to numb my emotions. I’m no longer the weak person I was and I’m glad I found myself. Solitude can be a very slippery slope. I’m so grateful for the people who’ve supported me. It’s okay to not be okay.
I’ve been dealing with a lot mentally and I’m not sure how long it’s gonna take for me to get over this but I’ve been feeling so unappreciated lately and it’s not a good feeling please keep me in your prayers and I’m sorry for my absence #transwoman#transgender#tranisbeautiful
