I'd have to say yes also, the fact that I was born a man (an accident of birth) has only caused me grief. I don't think of myself as a woman trapped in a man's body, just that I'd be happier as a woman. I don't think that I'd be loosing a part of myself so much as fully realising who I truly am. I have often fantasized about this and each time I do, I can't help but feel that my life would have been better had I started out that way.
Love and stuff,
