I grew up wanting to be a boy. I grew up living as an adult in a teenage body. My first relationship was with my best girlfriend. My first arrest was at 15. My first hit n run was at 14. At 13, I was drinking with my middle school (male) teacher. By 16, I was in a relationship with a dean of students who was 30 years older (female). I was sexually assaulted at 14, then 15. I started drinking at 12-13 years of age, smoking cigarettes at 11, doing LSD by 14. Been arrested or in trouble with the law 10 times. I could write a lot more. By the time I turned 31, my life changed. I had survived suicide. I was invited by a friend at work to Starbuck’s and she said, “ Jesus.” My life has been radically changed. I have 13 years of sobriety. I have not engaged in sexual perversion since 2005. I have been celibate awaiting my husband from God. I was healed of Bipolar Disorder. I have recently finished Seminary and Bible College. I would love to share a lot more.
