Christine Daniels worked for the Los Angeles Times as sportwriter Mike Penn for more than two decades before she began the transition to Christine Daniels. Her article, Old Mike, New Christine, when she announced her transition made me a little teary:
All I can say at this point is that I am now happier, more focused and more energized when I sit behind a keyboard. The wicked writer's block that used to reach up and torture me at some of the worst possible times imaginable has disappeared.Her blog Woman in Transition documents her journey in the workplace and beyond.
My therapist says this is what happens when a transsexual finally "integrates" and the ever-present white noise in the background dissipates.
