Hey there everyone,
As a new member here I thought I'd introduce myself and lay out what's brought me here.
I've been a believer of Christ since I was a young child, and strangely enough I also identify as transgender (born as Male, but prefer to identify as Female).
Across my life I admit that even beside being Transgender, my life has still been filled with sin, masturbation probably being my worst offense. I also used to go by the pseudonym "Celeste Amaterasu". I figured that God and Jesus probably would not appreciate me using a Shinto deity as part of how I choose to represent myself online, so have just shortened it to Celeste for now, and am taking strides to change my username wherever in online games, or starting a new account where I can't.
For the first time in a while I participated in a Church sermon as well. Overlake Christian Church is a pretty large church, and they host a livestream of their sermon that's open for me to watch. I hope to actually be able to attend at some point as well.
Last year I moved up to the Redmond area of Washington and don't have the ability to be around family as much as I used to. I was actually able to being hormone replacement therapy to deal with the depression from my gender dysphoria, and it was actually very helpful for the last year of my life, but feeling the guilt recently has caused me to stop taking my suppliments, and my next appointment with my doctor is this Wednesday. I hate to say that stopping this treatment has been very painful and has left me feeling a lot of depression over the last week.
Sadly many of my friends that I hang around with on Steam and even my friends from my hometown seem to be into fornication as well. (Seems to be a sin not many can pull away from.
So finding this site, I hope to surround myself with a lot more fellow followers and try to become a better follower of Jesus, and maybe find a few fellow gamers out there that I can enjoy playing with to take my mind off the pain I'm going through.
Thank you for listening to my rant,
