How old were you when you started to realize that the gender that you were physically born with may not have been the one that you emotionally identified with?
How did you go about learning and understanding the idea of transgender and transitioning to the gender that you truly identified with?
In those first steps in the process of truly identifying yourself and your gender identity, what would you say was the most difficult part of the process?
Once you settled into the thought of you gender identity, and you began to follow through with the process, what were the emotions in that? Fear? Frustration? Comfort? Relief?

Now that you are "legally" recognized as female, do you feel that some of the weight has been lifted off your shoulders?
