  1. I am a true hermaphrodite. I knew I was different than others as a small child but was not sure where I fit in with others.

Im not yet ready to come out of the closet publicly with my news but I do accept me finally and am able to love myself. It has taken almost 6 decades to get here and to forgive my parents for the lies and for what they allowed to be done to me surgically. Maybe someday I will be ready for the next step in my progression and healing but for now Im content to know the truth for myself.
