I feel incredibly grateful that someone gave me a partner, a good knife, and an on-call emergency medic and otherwise got the fck out of the way. Below, he recounts how he found solace in nature amidst a torturous childhood, how life as an outdoor adventurer has transformed him every bit as much as his medical transition and how he fended off jaguars and feasted on snake vertebrae while completely naked and somewhat afraid in the Honduran jungle. They were initially interested in my wife and me. I also have the survival skills and experience. Honestly, no matter your gender identity, meeting someone for the first time while naked on the first day of a survivalist challenge in the middle of a new place is a highly pressurized situation. In the scene where we finally meet, I tell my partner Theresa about my surgery and my scars. We were both thinking about ourselves and what everyone else thinks of us. By being completely honest, we established an even playing field and ended up in the same boat. Overall, I think we both handled the situation very well. It was awkward.

His episode debuted this month. I try not to think of the jungle rain as unceasing. I try to feel it, drop by drop. Sometimes a drop hits a spot where my skin is cut or burned away, and I feel a little thrill. This is miserable, but I feel fortunate. Growing up knowing I was a boy when everyone around me considered me a girl — and not a very good one — already taught me how to survive alone. Being naked in this remote jungle is a relief. First, I rode horses, traveling alongside a team and wagon and rounding up cows on ranches in western South Dakota. These days my wife and I spend our time living and camping with a team of dogs in Alaska, Canada and the upper Midwest. I want to show what trans people can accomplish.
I'm so happy to know another doctor's wife. Moved into his house and it is hard to fit in. I think the secret to a successful marriage and a successful family is to respect each other's space and to enjoy all the good times no matter how trivial they are and to foucs on the positive aspects of the marriage an family life. Hiring someone to read for research does not work for a variety of reasons. The religious differences between you two are a deal-breaking fault. But you are setting yourself up to leave the Church more easily, and even if you agree the children will be raised Mormon, your kids will likely not continue to participate in the Church as adults. I love this post and this perspective. I guess I want to know if I do decided to start my future with him, should I expect to be constantly cheated on and be okay with it.
