A man from Colorado (Not a Florida man, surprisingly.) who was admitted to the hospital for a kidney stone received surprising news when the nurse came back with test results revealing he was actually a woman.
Steve Crecelius, a photographer from Denver, said he felt different all his life and always had a strong feminine side. When he went to the emergency room five years ago, he wasn’t very surprised when the nurse told him she found traits of both genders in his ultrasound results.
“The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, ‘Huh, this says you’re a female. It was very liberating. I had spent so much energy after the age of 13 constantly evaluating how people looked at me and acted towards me.” Crecelius said.
Steve, who now goes by “Stevie,” said his wife and their six children accepted his new identity right away. Crecelius and his wife, Debbie, have been together for 25 years and she’s supported him every step of the way, including taking him to buy his first bra. She told him, “You know, when I first saw you, I said to myself, ‘He runs like a girl.'”
