Fear is a terrible thing. It keeps people from truly living their lives more often than not. It had kept me frozen until the day when I finally decided that I would no longer let fear dictate my happiness.

After Dany and I moved in together, we slept in the same bed, but I always insisted that the light be turned off before I got into bed. I couldn't bear to have her see me with that appendage still there. This was every night, with no exceptions. 

Dany eventually came up with this little lie that a good friend, ‘who liked to help people, had offered to pay for my surgeries. I saw through that immediately and said as much, but I loved Dany even more for it. Dany was always my staunchest supporter, forever trying to do anything to simply make me smile. 


So, Dany kept offering, and I kept saying no because I wanted her to know that she could back out of our relationship whenever hy wanted. I didn’t want there to be financial obligations. Dany, however, was not having any of it. I did mention that she was nothing if not persistent, right? It became official. I would be having surgery.

An excellent read would recommend for anyone going through difficulties in life and, more importantly, for people of trans origin and others in the LGBTQ+ community.
