So if you are thinking about transitioning, just starting transition/HRT, or have been at it for a little while, just know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that light is reachable. It’s a long road. It’s a hard road, even without a divorce, a lost job, alcohol struggles and a sexual assault. It might be one of the hardest things you ever do, but it does end.
In this fairly long but well written post, Emma takes you through her past, which included alcoholism:

Among other things, Emmz considers herself an activist, yet she's pondering the idea of shutting down her blog. Be sure to let her know what you think about all of this, but first take the time to read, Transition Ends, Now What?
