Well, after my marriage imploded, I was ready to try and find out why I behaved like I did. My first stop in this journey was a christian counsiling center. They promiced a "cure" for gays and Tg, and I was desperate. The consilor was into Jung and dream interpertation, and encouraged me to write everything down. So not long after I started, I had a flashback and grabed a pen and paper and started to write. I had no idea what I was writing until I finished and read it. It was a graphic description of one of my assaults. I started to feel ill. I soon lost my job because now I couldnt stop thinking about it. I also lost my grandmother, who had been one of the few people who knew my secret and loved me anyway. I then lost the home I was staying in. I found a new job, and lasted 6 months. Now things were getting desperate. Then, out of the blue, I wrote a story called "The saga of E-Girl", and even though I didnt know it, I was on my way back up.

A "Christian Counselor'

...into Jung and dream interpretation? There's a real dichotomy if I ever saw one. I'm so glad you're you...I know that sound so Rogerian...Mr. Rogers to be precise! But you are whom you were created to be. I'm so glad to get to know your more through these posts. Thank ou for blessing my day.

When I Came Out As Transsexual

When I came out as transsexual, my sister-in-law took it upon herself to contact "Focus On The Family" and they referred her to a "Christian" therapist for me. She told me that this person was a former transsexual. I took the referral card and tossed it in the garbage. From all I have researched about the issue, there is nothing that will really "cure" someone who is really dealing with this issue. This person was obviously transgendered and not really transsexual. I told her that there are varying degrees of Gender issues. I tried to explain to her that transgendered was an umbrella term and that one person may feel entirely different than another and just because this person was supposedly "cured" did not mean they were really transsexual in the first place. Needless to say, I never went to see this person. Dr. Phil had one of these quacks on his show and all they did was demonize the parents on there that were dealing with this by allowing their children to be their trueselves. It was pointed out to these people that unless they had a child that was going through this, they had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. I have not paid any attention to anything Dr. Phil said since then.

I Sooo know what you are talking about!

I wound up talking to an aversion therapist, and did war with FOF,where it finally came to the point that I used the "blood of Jesus prayer" on them. It was odd, because after that they began to speak to me in pretty concilliatory terms and stopped using certain Rhetoric.

My treatment at the hands of the faithful was what caused me to begin looking at Islam, but the trinity thing had always bothered me. I'll have to tell you that Islam has just as many problems as Christianity.
