My view count jumped within a few hours of her acceptance (thank you and welcome to any new readers!). So I thought I would follow the suggestion of a few friends and put up a post containing the entries that tell my story so far, more or less. The Chronicles of Cass, if you will. :c)
I say "more or less" because I have at least one additional lengthy post to write: puberty, when I finally realized who I was. As you can imagine, that is not an easy subject to address. But I will. I must.
Writing these other posts has been incredibly cathartic. I can only hope they help even one other person the way that reading similar posts helped me when I was starting my journey.
These are more or less chronological in order, but in a few instances are grouped thematically. I will admit up front that they may be a bit intense in spots. I tried to be as honest as possible, and sometimes the truth is painful.
I *do* have a sense of humor, though, albeit an offbeat one. (Or as my friend April puts it, "Nope. You're just weird." :c)). So, feel free to poke around if you need cheering up. Try anything labeled "Conversations with C," which are inspired by my occasional chats with my 19-year-old nephew C. He is, as you will see, a piece of work. In the best possible way, of course!
Thank you in advance for your patience in slogging through these! I hope you find them useful in some small way.
