From The Inside


  1. Hang in there, Biki. Bob at I Should Be Laughing said I should visit here. I've got a similar problem but it's reversed. I took a COGIATI test online and it pretty much confirmed what I knew already -- I'm female trapped in a male body.

    Most days I can cope but there are times when I wish I could transition without fear. Maybe I will someday. Maybe I'll stay tortured. I really don't know but I'm going to see a counselor next year when I can afford it.

  2. Leave it to Buddha to put it so succinctly.
    You need to sit in the silence of the peace within and hear what that voice says.
    That's the voice that knows, no matter how much you may not like the answer.

  3. @Bob: Absolutely, thanks, that applies to so much for so many of us.

    Peace <3

  4. A good quote for you:

    "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference."
    - Reinhold Niebuhr

  5. When you were with and then so recently back from mingling with people who were sharing your journey you were as though 'reborn' and there were lots of positive vibes around

    It can't always be like that but if you have a scrapbook of memories or even a diary or pictures . . . perhaps you have email addresses or phone numbers.

    You should seek the support of knowing now that you are far from alone and that RJ may be a kindred voice for you in what is otherwise a blogging community which tries to be supportive but ultimately mostly ploughs a different furrow.

    I just think that you didn't go to the conference for nothing.

  6. Biki when we try to control things that are not always within our grasp to do so, we can drive ourselves further from our solution. Try letting go of the definition you wish to mold and be who you are. No one said you had to be absolutely anything. Just be you and who you think you are. :-)

    I hope that makes sense to you.
