I've always been interested in homeopathic medicine, your story helped me understand the Law of Similars. Let likes be treated by likes.
The curative virtue of medicines thus depends on their sysmptoms being similar to those of the disease, but the stronger.
It follows that...disease can be destroyed and removed most surely, throughly, swiftly and permanently only by a medicine that can make a human being fell totality of symptoms most completely similar to it but stronger.

This goes to show how some people can be so predjudce just becuase you are a Transexual, Gay or Bi-Sexual. Thinking that you can catch it or teach it. God Forbid they just accept it as normal, for that person and let it be each indiviuals personal choice!
Chris Bohjalian you touched my heart & soul when you wrote:
"Or walk with me a few generations into the future. You're a short man. You're barely 5 feet. And you are sick to death of being treated as...small. Especially since you are so big inside. So tall. You know it. You sense it. You feel it."
Chris, my Husband is 4'4" a Dwarf/Little Person. Yes, he is sick to death of being treated as different, a freak...not Normal! What the hell is normal?!! We have learned to live with the stares & the snickers & the outright rudeness.
I'm hear to say that the size of a man does not make the man. He is the most loving, adoring, sensitive, gentle, yet strong man, I have ever known and thank god I could see past his size to his heart & soul!! Maybe being different made him the awesome man he is...maybe it did not!
I'm 5'9", so yes we do tend to stop traffic...but it is our life and we are living it to the fullest! After 13 years together, thank god the internet chatrooms were around in 1995 when... of all the chatrooms... in all the world, we both ended up in a chatroom called 40-Friends(us both being 40 at the time) & FATE stepped in and for 6 months we talked online & the phone before SteffieStar flew from Ketchikan, Alaska to Santa Monica, California on Feburary 14, 1996 to meet in person the man she fell in love with and who had fallen in love with her...Fairly Tales Do Come True!!

Maybe because I have been Homeless for over 4 months (we did have our SUV...to sleep in), this story really hit home with me! I was in the middle of trying to find Meds to help with my Anxiety Disorder at the time too!
I should have seen the ending coming...but I didn't!! You never know what Life is going to hand you to deal with!
