Dad, you’re so beautiful: these are the words my daughter said the first time she saw me after my transition. This sentence continues to resonate in my head…
As Simone de Beauvoir says so well “we are not born as a woman, we become”. I waited 53 years to become the one I am today. A long, sometimes but extraordinary process of love, sharing and support.
My transition from man to woman, I chose it from beginning to end, my particularity being to make this change overnight. I entered the hospital as a man and came out five days later as a woman.
I have the audacity to believe that this book can help other people in the same situation, parents, relatives, friends. To give them a new vision of what dysphoric people are living.

just my life and what recently happened to me
BANGKOK JUNE 2, 2017, D-DAY -1 BEFORE THE SURGERIES, this day will be decisive, it is the cardiologist and the two psychiatrists who will decide my future. The sun seems never to rise. By consulting my emails, I discover that Jeannette contacts all my relatives by trying to convert them to her cause. She who for twenty years lived next to a woman in intimacy does not support that I can live it finally in broad daylight. How far will she go to stop me from living my life, she who said: "whatever you do, I will follow you". Naively I believed it. My parents, my sister support me … fortunately.
In the morning, I will return to Piyavate Hospital to meet the cardiologist and a nephrologist. The cardiologist will decide whether or not the surgery can be performed, this visit is mandatory for people over 45 years old.
Once finished, it will be necessary to change hospital to meet the two psychiatrists.
Boun, the customer manager of the clinic advises me to make up and look as feminine as possible.
– Psychiatrists take more account of appearance than anything else.
In the space of half an hour, the doctor will get an idea about the person and will sign the famous “open sesame” giving access to the surgeries, what an insult to their art!!!
I wear makeup as best as I can, this is the first time I will appear in public … A very low-neck T-shirt, a white satin cropped pants and small sandals recently bought …
I go down to the lobby of the hotel, no driver at the moment. Nobody pays attention to me, I move, I cross, I sit, I feel good … so good! My God, am I really going to be able to live this happiness every day?
Arrived at the hospital, a nurse takes me to the cardiologist's office who I met the day before. He talks in Thai with this nurse, obviously there is something that does not please him in the electrocardiogram done the day before … Oh no, not yet a new problem!
To dispel this doubt, he wants me to do an ECG monitoring under effort. Another review, will it never end? On the other hand, it shows the seriousness with which they treat patients, it is not the commercial aspect that takes over.
Before this exam, I meet the nephrologist. The blood test showed a too high potassium levels, the cause is the anti-androgen drug that blocks the production of male hormones. I should have stopped my hormonal treatment two weeks before the surgery but then, I was leaving for hair implants, not for a vaginoplasty!
