I asked Jenny, currently a non-transitioner, to do a guest post.Currently? I could thank her for the vote of confidence in my likelihood of success at this endeavour, but in fact especially given what I wrote in the piece, it's a fair assessment. I once knew a former alcoholic who had dropped the booze overnight when told in no uncertain terms by his doctor it was killing him, like most reformed alcoholics he never went near alcohol again because he recognised how easily he could fall off the wagon. Acknowledging this made him stronger in his battle, just as acknowledging that there are circumstances in which I could give up on this one helps define the path I'm taking to hang in there for my wife.
