First and foremost, I want to thank my family and friends who have stood by me during this turbulent time in my life. Please know that I love you and appreciate all you have done and continue to do.
It is forever inscribed in my heart...
You may not always agree with me or understand my ways, but you have always been accepting and compassionate. You have always, always made me feel loved.
To all those reading this, I have never attempted anything like this before so please be patient. I will try and make it as interesting as possible. I will share with you a life of extreme ups and downs. Addiction as well as sobriety, criminal behaviors as well as becoming a law-abiding citizen. My daily struggle of prison life as a transgender inmate surrounded by men who do not understand the struggle.
As I share my thoughts and life, I hope that it can help someone who may be heading down the same road as I have.
Life can truly be whatever you choose to make it.
