My apologies - it's been ages since my last post. I suppose part of it is because my focus on this condition ebbs and flows. AIS is a part of my makeup, and has made me who I am today, but it's not the only thing. Just as we are all a sum of many parts, and arguably, more than just a sum of them.
I guess that was a convoluted way to say I've had other things on my mind these days. ;-)
I've been busy these days - with the job search (I've been unemployed for over a year now), and with a divorce. Yes, the ever-supportive husband I mentioned in previous posts has decided he is done with our relationship. (Those of you who know me personally but don't know I author this blog will likely now know who I am. And yes, this is me. Only I change a few details throughout for anonynmity! ;-))
I mention this as I wonder if my discovery of my AIS was a factor in him falling out of love and wanting to end things. Supportive friends insist that it's not, but I guess the insecurity in me causes me to ask the question. Especially since he brought it up in one of our breakup chats. He suggested I wasn't producing the right hormones or pheromones to keep him interested. He still insists that learning I am 46,xy has nothing to do with his feelings for me, but I do wonder. If the discovery did affect his feelings, I would be a little upset. I don't think there's anything male about me physically. Heck, I went for a huge portion of my adult life not knowing anything was amiss myself, and I live with me every day!
In other news, I've changed the comment settings on this blog so now when anyone comments, I will be notified by email immediately. Before, I would go weeks or months not knowing someone had left a comment or question. This should happen no more! Thanks for all your great comments, observations, questions and support!!
