Who is Justine-Paula?
I am a 38 year old trans* woman, I have been living my true self for 4 years since I decided to transition from boy to woman. I have battled with depression throughout my life, and I could not deal with this aspect of my life, and at the age of 34, I was ready to proceed.
I was a freelance television news video editor for the national broadcaster here in South Africa, and things went wrong for what ever when I told them I was transgender, I am not blaming them for what happened, I made the decision to transition, and this has brought to the surface a unknown but suspected autism which is believed to be Aspergers.
The last 4 years have passed with a blur, it has been one crazy ride, I have no idea from month to month what is going to happen, August 2013 sees me make a number of flights, Burlington to New York, New York to Dubai, Dubai to Durban, then Durban to Dubai, Dubai to London… Enough flying.. Not what my life is, and I am paying for every airmile… Not by choice.. I have come to love the USA, I get to leave on the 19th August.. Not happy about it…grrrh
