I am like a caterpillar. I am transitioning. I am learning to accept myself as I am and love who I am. Everyday, when I think of a negative thought, I immediately try to change the dialogue. I am married and have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. I hope to keep working until I'm 70 and in in the meantime, I am working on me. I don't feel this is selfish. However, all of this is very difficult and I find myself needing a lot of support. I'm not on Facebook and have recently put myself out there on Instagram. The worries that I am working on right now is my appearance, losing the weight that I gained in the last four years and my hair loss. They have caused a lot of depression and anxiety and I'm trying to work through it. I love this forum so much and I want to thank all the people who give such great advice!
