First Things

Angela is feeling better - slightly. So what are the first things she does? She blows off the patio, dusts the front eight rooms of the house, and gets out the sweeper. That's my girl! Of course, each of those items completely wore her out, so she took a thirty-minute break between each - and a two-hour nap before and after lunch. No, I wasn't home to see that she was overdoing it, but the evidence was clear when I returned from my meetings. She also confirmed her exploits over dinner. Yes, she was decidedly "done-in" for the remainder of day, evening and night. It'll be all I can do to keep her from cutting trees tomorrow! That's my T! It's also one of the Best Things About Married to a Transsexual.

Hi there! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I am a 26 year old female who has been with her soul mate, a TS woman, for seven years now. I met "him" when we were in 1st grade and we basically grew up together. We became "boyfriend" and girlfriend when we were 18, got legally married when we were 20, and she came out to me in 2006. It was a huge shock to me but once I thought about it, most of the traits that attracted me to Jerrie were feminine traits.

Our biggest problem was the fact that I wasn't completely honest with her on some issues. There was a period of time (I suppose you could call it the in-between time) when I wasn't exactly attracted to her. She would repeatedly ask me if I was attracted to her because she could tell that something was up, but I would always brush her off and tell her everything was fine because I didn't want to hurt her feelings. In the back of my mind I had thoughts such as "I need to get out of this marriage and find a man." Our relationship disintegrated and we basically lived as friends for a year or so. Since I denied my feelings to her AND myself and I never really dealt with them, I wound up falling out of love with her.

Things came to a head last February and we separated for a little while. This allowed me to find myself and realize how much I truly love Jerrie. We reunited in March just in time to celebrate our 7th anniversary. Now, we couldn't be happier! Now, I'm not embarrassed when people see me as a lesbian. I am proud to be with someone who loves me so much and who takes such good care of me.

Most of our friends and family members are very supportive. Jerrie's father and step-mother were the only exceptions; they disowned us when we told them two years ago and have just recently started speaking to us again. My family is under the impression that I need to find myself a man because I'm not gay (wrong!), but they still love and respect Jerrie and our relationship.

While Jerrie is on hormones, she has not had any surgery yet. We are hoping to have biological kids soon. (I also have fertility issues so it might be a stretch, but we're crossing our fingers!)

Best of luck to your and your wife :)
