2nd Edition published December 2015.The contents have been edited to remove typographical errors and updated to include a new final chapter. I spent the best part of fifty years in total denial of my true gender. To the rest of the world, from birth to my mid-fifties, I was seen as male. Yet I knew that I was female. I start my story on the day I told my wife I was transsexual. The book progresses along two interlinked paths. One describes my early childhood and development into an adult, getting married and having children. The other path describes my journey of transition following the disclosure to my wife. It details the process up to and including my Sex Reassignment Surgery in January 2010 and the five years beyond. It details my receipt of a Gender Recognition Certificate and the issue of the new Birth Certificate, recording that all-important change of sex. The amendment is from the M on my original birth certificate to F on my new one thereby giving the book its appropriate title.
