In the parlance of the South, “Hey, ladies.” Well yes, I’m another new gal here…but I’m not new to the lifestyle. Like so many of us, I knew I that I was different since I was very young. I dressed in my petite mother’s (very fashionable and hip) clothing from the time I was 6. It was nothing but natural for me. And again, like so many others, I went through the numerous binge and purge cycles due to other outside forces (school, jobs, expectations). Every time I purged, I felt worse. I just hated not being/looking/acting/dressing in the manner I knew I was supposed to. Every time I binged I was the real and better me.
God smiled upon me and blessed me with a really fantastic wife. She accepted me for who I was and has been ever so supportive. About 10 years into our marriage, I had the great fortune to work solely from home. I was able to be Dianna for 13 months straight (397 days to be exact)! Yes, it was the miracle that I had always wished for. Our first child had been born, and we were two “moms” caring for our son. We just did everything as 2 cute (young) moms with a child. Daycare really thought that we were a lesbian couple as just 2 moms.
Well jobs changed, cities changed, and so did Dianna! She got put away in the closet for 19 years. The pressure has been immense, and Dianna didn’t quite like that dark space. Small town, professional, and you know all the rest of the sub plots. Do not get me wrong, the times weren’t dark! The real Dianna just needed to be out and excited again.
So….. and that brings us to present times. I am nearing retirement. And with that, Dianna gets a new lease on life. I will be who I know that I am, who I have always been, and who I should be for the rest of my life. This will be a time of both change and challenge. The kids would not be as accepting if it wasn’t for my wife’s ‘sales job’. Now, I was pretty cute 20 years ago, even if I say so myself! I’m really put out by the plain fact that I’m going to have to deal with gray haired wigs and the like. But, I’m going to get over that!
I’ll keep y’all posted as life goes along.
Dee (Dianna Marie)
