I was born with a serious facial disfigurement. In my teen years I've been trough many surgeries and now I have a rather "normal" face and see myself as "healed" from that disfigurement. But I can often relate to transgender people. It feels like also I wasn't born in the right body and that now after the surgeries finally gave the right body (face). And I don't want to tell about the disfigurement I used to have to people. I also am not able to show childhood pics bc they might see the disfigurement.
I think trans people feel the same. Is it weird that I relate? Or would trans people be offended by that? Anyone who recognizes this?
