“Stephan always made me nervous. I’d try to dodge him while on campus. It wasn’t that he wasn’t attractive, but I’d been warned to stay away from ‘the frat boys.’ He invited me to his graduation where all his close friends and family gathered to celebrate. Then he just announced I was his girlfriend. I was as shocked as everyone else. His family and friends were ecstatic. Little did they know, my head was spinning.”

“My doctor’s cold hands pressed against my breasts. ‘No lumps, but let me process the urine sample.’ 5 minutes later, she retuned with a beaming look on her face. ‘You’re pregnant! Congrats!’ I’m…what? Who? How? ‘Infertile’ and on birth control, I was in utter disbelief! We went from a quiet little house in Suburbia to catapulted into parenthood. I had no energy or desire for intimacy. We hit the one-year mark completely sexless.”

“The flyer tells girls, ‘Wear a little lip gloss. And don’t forget the approved dress standards. You don’t want the guy dancing with you to feel uncomfortable because of the questionable outfit you justified.’ No. NOPE. NOOO! My church taught me I needed men to tell me how to behave sexually. I lived my whole life with shame, guilt. This is not happening with my daughter.”

This has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. I finally surrendered. I had enough. I needed to give myself a chance to live.”

But I also knew I felt like a boy trapped in a girl’s body.”
