Excerpt from the French version of my Memoirs.

Longues marches.     Une grande partie de mes souvenirs de jeunesse est entourée d’un brouillard dans mon esprit. Une de ces parties est claire, mais le reste n’est qu’un brouillard de sentiments, de craintes et de perspectives dépressives. Peut-être qu’il s’agit de la façon qu’a l’esprit de lâcher prise des choses qui ne nous servent plus, ou peut-être qu’est-ce juste les effets normaux de devenir une vieille femme ?      Pour moi, c’est douloureux  de penser à moi en tant qu’enfant, adolescente et adulte avant la transition.Cela impliquait de penser… Read more Excerpt from the French version of my Memoirs.

Motivations.

I wrote my memoirs partly because I saw it as a way to show women like myself as being human, with all this entails.

But they are wrong. I am a woman and like most women, I am unique in many ways and do not fit neatly into a preconceived mold of femininity or femaleness, of hormone levels, menstrual history, not even of how one is raised.

Why I wrote my story.

My story and why I decided to finally write it. I can say right off that this is not the story of a heroine, because I am decidedly not such a person. There have been many memoirs written by women like myself, women of trans origin. I originally started putting words to my Pages app a few years ago, mostly because I needed to read my own words and work through my feelings and try and get a better understand of who I am.When I began to transition, I felt… Read more Why I wrote my story.
