Thank you for posting this thread. I appreciate your candor and the courage you have shown in telling it like it is, not like it's "supposed" to
You are beautiful, you are perfect, you are who you were meant to be.
I am glad to hear you have a support system of loving and caring people at home.
A thought crossed my mind: maybe you felt compelled to post here to test the waters for telling your story to others in real life?
Either way, I am glad you took the time to write out your experiences. They are important and they are truth.
