Isolated...

I'm all alone, by myself, just me and no one else. How I felt in my teens, is still how I feel to this day. Living in the middle of nowhere, there is no one to cry to, no one to that understands, no one like me. The world is passing me by. People protesting, groups, gatherings, people with causes, all of one mind, one heart. I'm so far away, removed, alone. My friend, my comfort? This keyboard. I need more, a hug, a smile, the sound of laughter.
...For those of you who have someone to transition with, listen to them, embrace them, hold their hand. They need you and you need them. Cherish their friendship. It's no fun being all alone.

I feel for you dear. I too, am isolated and alone and it sucks. I just hope it gets better for all of us. Julia

I used to be isolated too. I would have a party and invite people out.

Can you get involved in civic groups? How about a church like UCC? I know that there are certain factions out there that can be pretty snotty, but Hot Springs is a big enough place that you should be able to interact with other folks. And I don't mean simply other T folks. My most rewarding interaction is with spiritual cisgendered women. For that matter, your spouse ain't chopped liver. She's still with you. That's something for which many transwomen would give their eye teeth.
Love to you, Hon
