A transgender woman with multiple children admitted that she had settled for a life that had been a lie after her wife passed away 30 years ago. She said that her desire to look like her wife motivated her to fall for her. In her 70s, when she was growing up in Northamptonshire, she had a different mindset about women. She also feared that she would be rejected by society if she transitioned.
She had lived a lie for most of her life. She married and had children, but she stopped pretending to be a man when her wife died in 2019 due to her illness. She is now living her truth. She said that she always wanted to be a woman, and her first memory of wearing women’s clothes was when she was in a Catholic school.
When she was seven, she and her friends could play in the corner if they were good in the class. Every Friday, she would wear a bright pink tutu. During the 70s, she found it strange to be dressing up in women’s clothes whenever there was no one around.
According to her, she grew up dressing up as a woman and never actually went out in public wearing a dress. She said that she had always wanted to be a female, and she had lived a lie all her life. She believes that people like her, and they live in a fantasy world where they can imagine what life would be like if they were truly a woman.
When people ask her when she first became a woman, she says that she has always been a woman. She met her wife, Theresa, in a pub when she was 23 years old. She said that she struggled to convince others that she was truly female.
Theresa and her two-year-old son named Rob have been together for a long time. She said that she would never have met her husband’s wife, and she was too shy to talk to her. However, after she met her, she said that she was immediately attracted to her. She was tall, blonde, and wore a dress and heels.
It was clear to me that I wanted to be her from the moment I saw her. One night, after meeting her, I told a friend that I was planning on getting married to her. Soon after they met, she admitted to Theresa that she also liked dressing up as a woman. She said that she could live with this, but she felt ashamed of it.
When her sons, Rob, 20, and Keith, 13, were young, she told them that she liked to wear women’s clothes. She also said that Cody, 11, accepted it as well. In September 2016, her wife was diagnosed with cancer. She underwent treatment, but the cancer eventually returned and killed her in March 2018.
She said that she decided to become a woman after her wife passed away due to how short her life was. During that year, she spent a lot of time thinking about how she would be different. She said that she was still going through grief, but she was also filled with excitement.
During that time, she also visited some of the places that she and her wife had been over many years. She was able to reminisce about the things that she and her wife had done together. In September 2019, she went to her GP to talk about her gender identity. She then went to the local clinic where she was referred to.
After waiting for almost four years on a waiting list, she decided to go private and was diagnosed with gender dysmorphia. She was then given hormones shortly after. Currently, she is waiting for a vaginoplasty, which is a type of cosmetic procedure that costs around £18,000.
