Kathy Dear (Assitant Sectretary)

I too was aware that I was different from a very early age without really understanding what the difference was.  It was a different era and not something that I was able to talk about.  It was long before the internet came to life, so there was no access to information.  I thought I was just odd and did my best to get by.  By and large I coped, although I have always been rather solitary, and eventually married,  having convinced myself that I could be strong and make it all go away.

Needless to say, it never does, but I stayed in the closet for a long time.  My wife did eventually find out, and has been very supportive ever since. That unlocked the door. I found Unique and with their support Kathy spread her wings.
