Aloha !

This is a difficult (very personal and scary) thing for me to share.  I have seen and read many other accounts of people who have transitioned – those have helped me immensely.  But we are all unique, and my journey does not seem to fit others.  So, in hopes of helping others as well as documenting my journey – I’ve created this blog.

I am a transsexual woman;  my gender is female and my birth sex is male (this is the official medical definition and its in my medical record).

This is not a choice, nor is it a lifestyle or even a preference. It took many years, with professional help, to find who I am and to finally merge all of my life’s descriptiveness, talents, sensitivities and general outlook on life into a deep understanding of self. As that phase progressed, it was my maleness that started to fall away, like layers of an onion.  Rather than becoming a woman, I realized I am a woman.

This is my diary of my journey through transition.

With kindness and Aloha,

    Hi Sifan,
    I’m really really glad i came across your blog, honestly i just feel less alone ? I am transgender too but for now i dont have the occasion to transition. It feels very frustrating but i keep hope to be myself in the future. I hope you’re doing well now 🙂

    • Thank you! Yes, I’m doing well, life is ‘normal’ now. It was the best decision/action I’ve taken. As an older woman I blend in well here. I hope for you the same!
