Vaela, read your blog, I found it very interesting. I myself will never consider going all the way to fully transitioning. There is the cost not only of dollars but family relationships. My 3 kids are not accepting at all, so I will keep to my cross dressing, being my female self 5 to 75% of the time. We all my sacrifices sometimes , it could be the job we don’t like but pays well or has great benifits or living a location for said job or for the kids sake when we would prefer to move to a different climate. I love my kids so much and want to be part of their lives that I can keep Sandy in the background a little.
