After decades of hating my body in particular and my life in general, I’m learning to love myself even as I strive to change my body. I can honestly say my depression and anxiety really got going at about the start of puberty. Well, the first time I went through puberty. I started hormone replacement therapy in 2011, causing a second puberty at about age 42.
I’m on psych meds, too, these days. There’s a lot of damage a lack of societal support has caused. I’m trying to work through it, but I think it will be an everlasting process.
I’m just your average middle-aged, transgender, queer, polyamorous, kinky, punk, Christian witch.
