I know now, what I had back in kindergarten were anxiety attacks. I was happy kids asked if I were a boy or girl but anxious cuz mom wouldn't let me wear boys clothes.
I am what I call, "The King of Repression" and I repressed the trans issues (GID for you DSM folk) it's all rushed back since coming out as a woman who wants to be with women.
One more closet to go. Plz see HBO doc. Southern Comfort.
