I’m about to come out to everyone reading this blog. I am a transsexual female and have been living fulltime as a woman for quite some time. This may come as a tiny shock to some and not such a shock to others. My apologies for the lack of artistry with this confessional, I’ve been doing this for years now and I really think the best way is just to dump it on you all at once.
There is a reason why I’ve chosen this moment to specifically tell you dear readers about my medical condition: I’m about to get it fixed.
I realized I needed to do something about the little girl who wanted to take over the asylum in 2005. I had been talking online to a few girls for about six months when I came out to my mother, the most important person to me. She accepted me completely and on Christmas night, 2005, I left Iowa for a trip to Virginia to spend a few weeks with a girl I had met on the net. I left Iowa as a female and have never gone back since. In 2006, I legally changed my name to Zoey Elizabeth. In 2007, I had facial feminization surgery with Dr. Mark Zukowski in Chicago. I had been obese for all of my adult life and so I received gastric bypass surgery in 2010 and have since lost almost two hundred pounds.
I have recently received word from my mother and the financial men that my funds for gender re-assignment surgery are in place. I hope to have GRS and breast augmentation in Bangkok, Thailand. High season there begins in our autumn, which means I have a very short time to get everything lined up before the last inexpensive weeks in Bangkok, sometime in early September.
I plan to document my plans and roadblocks and generally whine about the red tape we are forced to navigate for no real reason. Let the frustration and painful anticipation begin!!
