This is my story of a very difficult and painful period in my life. A time when I was struggling to make any sense of where I fitted in the world. I enlisted the help of a few skillful people around me, and I shall be eternally grateful for their patience and tolerance.
The reader should be aware that my writing is very frank and honest. There are one or two expletives and, in places, descriptions of imagined violence used as a tool in the counseling process. I would also ask that you bear in mind when it was written, and in that sense it is very much of its day.
Needless to say, that nearly a quarter of a century on, I am in a very different and better place now.
Thank you for reading.
