This resonates with me. At the time I felt overwhelmed (I didn't know I was in transition), felt like I was doing poorly, but everyone told me they hadn't seen any woman handle it so well in a long time and I was doing great. I remember half laughing, "I don't feel like I am!"

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
