Karen was born and raised in rural Scotland and she has always had an appreciation for outdoor sports, particularly sailing. From a very young age, however, she had sensed that something was not as it should be in her life. Karen was living her life as a male but knew that she should’ve been born a girl. Here is the story of Karen’s long and challenging journey of self-discovery. “I was expecting the worst. I was expecting to be laughed at and ridiculed and never to be taken seriously again, but what I actually got was an outpouring of support and love from all these people I used to work with. It was one of the most empowering things I’ve ever had” Listener warning - this episode contains reference to suicidal thoughts. ********************* Huge thanks to our sponsor, The voices.captivate.fm/rya-home">https://our-voices.captivate.fm/rya-home (Royal Yachting Association) (RYA) Visit the voices.captivate.fm/rya">https://our-voices.captivate.fm/rya (RYA website) to find your local club and get involved ********************* http://ourvoicespodcast.com/ (Check out the Our Voices website for more on this story) http://ourvoicespodcast.com/ (We're also on )https://www.facebook.com/ourvoicesinthenhs (Facebook), https://twitter.com/OurVoices14 (Twitter) and https://www.instagram.com/ourvoicespod/ (Instagram) A voices.captivate.fm/fascinate-productions">https://our-voices.captivate.fm/fascinate-productions (Fascinate) Production
