1) From the friend who knew from the beginning, 5 years later on a little get together: "Aren't you over that yet??"
never mind that it hadn't ended yet,. . .or that I have PTSD,. . .or many other things.
2) From the first counselor I tried: "I really think all of this wouldn't be a problem if you would just get married." <br> (I was 22).
I politely left and cancelled all future appointments,. . .took me over a year to try therapy again.
And to throw in a positive spin,. . . . I love my good friend who encourages me to dress up and be feminine, understanding that such a side is scarry for me at times, as my confidence in my own sexuality still wavers.
