Caitlyn Jenner thinks gender dysphoria is "a condition you cannot get away from".
The 65-year-old reality TV star - who was known as Bruce Jenner before her transition - has expressed regret for not explaining the "severity" of her personal torment over the mismatch between her sex and gender identity to her ex-wife Kris Jenner, who she divorced earlier this year.
Caitlynn admitted: "Probably a mistake I made was maybe not having her understand - not the severity of it but that this is a condition you cannot get away from.
"From that standpoint, maybe I blew it away a little bit, sort of 'This is what I do.'"
Caitlyn - who has daughters Kendall, 19, and 17-year-old Kylie with the showbiz matriarch, as well as four other adult kids from two previous marriages - confessed her life was riddled with "turmoil" as she tried to balance raising her children with coping with her personal troubles.
