      I just have to get my books.

      As far back as I can remember, I knew in my heart I was a girl.  I tried so hard to act like a boy, and do boy things, but I always felt uncomfortable. In school, when they would have the boys and girls line up separately, I always went to the girls line.  People would always make fun of my because of this and so could never understand why until i got older. I always knew in my heart I was a girl that was born in the wrong body.

      I was born into the same 1950 mindset as Vicki, even though  I was born inter-sexed.  We didn't know about it .until puberty started in and my internal sex organs matured first.  Then my parents were able to hide from me by saying I had an appendicitis.  Their argument was they were protecting from the backwoods bigots.  When I was nearly seven "I learned from the Nuns in my Catholic school.  that to speak out the desire that you were different and wished to be a girl. Why I was an abomination before God.  And they had a good Catholic sadist that was skilled in turning students around.  Ever pray kneeling on a hard linoleum floor.  when I was seated in a desk.it was sitting straight while he beat the Christian view on trans people.  One day he took it too  far when I refused to answer him until he stopped hitting me.   He shattered a 40 inch long hardwood pointer across my hand. 
      I remember it vividly,  I screamed at the top of my lungs and curled into a fetal position.  I was hysterical.  Never had i ever experienced so much pain at the hands of any abuser.  Father Hagenbarth picked me  up and carried me next door to the ER at the Catholic Hospital.  My parents were called.  The psychologist was fired.  And I learned about hiding in the closet and keeping my mouth shut..  Their treatment worked for many years.  Why do we need a gender therapist.  I needed mine to help me sort out things in my mind.  To help make me whole again.  Its why I spent all my savings to become me.  It made me feel complete.

      Hi Joshua,  I'm new here so we haven't met yet-- hello! My name is Kendall. I've struggled with depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation since a young age, so I think I have an idea how you might be feeling. If you ever want to chat or vent or just talk about things to pass the time, feel free to send me a message. I hope things start feeling better soon, and even if they don't we're all here for you. <3
