    Are my parents too old for me to come out them?

    My parents are long gone, but I know how they would react if they were alive. My mom would struggle with it and eventually be accepting. My dad would probably disown me. But people are unpredictable, so who knows?

    The Journey

    Welcome Traci Lynn, nice to have you among us. I have to agree with this statement. Coming out to my spouse was by far the hardest thing I’ve had to face since starting my transition. That unknown of how my revelation might change my relatively comfortable life made it a a very hard choice. Like you say, it was necessary to move forward. Thanks for sharing some things about yourself today. I look forward to getting more insight as to your journey thus far and maybe a small glimpse of what the further holds for you. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

    I Fell Apart

    Asymetrical? Yikes! My right one is coming along just fine. But the left? Not so much. Over the past 10 years, I've had 2 surgeries (2 on the left, 1 on the right) for gynecomastia when I was overweight. I think that the target cells under the areola on the left were probably damaged. For one reason or another, it does't seem to be uncommon.

    Just to clarify ladies my hrt is supervised, my clinic is very progressive and listens to its patients about what approach and meds that are used. Self medicating is a very bad idea.

    I need to loose weight before I go on hormones

    Increase water intake. Regular short walks as suggested. Get rest. Try not to push too hard too fast that will aggregate your conditions and possiby set you back. You can do this Cara. You can have a better life too. Step at a time. You matter too. Actually, you are already doing it. Congratulations hon!
  9. Thanks Brandi, and everyone else on this thread Alex started. Felt like maybe I ranted too much. I'm pretty new here, and don't want to bite people's hands that were only trying to comfort me. Because yeah its hard out there sometimes and there have been times I overreacted and got defensive. To be honest sticking up for myself at those times in public did not seem to do me, or any other gender non-conforming people, any favors. In the spirit of the thread title, I absolutely feel this way. I'm not that into makeup and if I wear it, its to try and just look less like a man. Maybe I need more expensive makeup and just paint roller it on. Going to look for a stir crazy thread to post on because I'm ready with spoons

    What a nice, refreshing story! Too bad about having to wait out the virus, but I hope you have a good time when you eventually get together.

    Thank you for your positive and encouraging response. I know it's going to be hard for me as I progress forward but I know I'm a good, caring , and empathetic person. Like you I hope good will find me someday. Shawna. How long have you been on hormones ???

    I Fell Apart

    It is nice to hear from others that fears like I was experiencing are not just me. I am also reassured by all this talk of asymmetrical breasts, for while my forms are identical (almost as if they came from the same mold!), I find it difficult to place them in perfect symmetry. I guess "abnormal" is normal...
  14. So to keep it somewhat short. A lovely young , well younger then me, lady sent me a message early this AM. She asked me if I knew Jeff. Who is my brother so I say I do and ask her who she was? I have never met her but she knew me through my brothers. So she introduces herself and we chat for like two hours. Just sharing things but nothing to deep. We grew up in the same town and she apparently knows both my brothers and my sister. A ton of the same people so I felt comfortable sharing. So she then asks me what my story is she would love to know. I assume about me being trans. So I said what the heck and shared. She asks me a ton of good questions as was in general very kind and very interested in it all. So it’s getting on in the morning and we both had stuff to do so she asks me if it would be ok to get a friend request from her. Yes I’m ok with that. She then asks me out on a date. 😳😳😳🤔👍 Of course it is delayed until the virus lets us all out again but I accepted. 😊 I admit I find her very attractive. She had mentioned how young I look and how very pretty she though I was. She couldn’t believe it was really me. I said it really was and then we had to go. Wow is all I can say. Ive said I’m not ready to date now and that’s true. But this virus could delay that for quite some time so I thought why not. By then my divorce will be final so I’m free game. Lol

    You'll never satisfy a woman.

    I can assure you my entire life I’ve only held attraction towards women. It was one of the most confusing thing to me at an early age that I felt so female living in a male body and being so attracted to women. I just thought I had some weird fetish of something. I did not understand nor know anything g about LGBT back then. I was just weird so hide it and live life with the cards I was dealt. Even after coming out I had zero interest in men. Gross. Today I get all weak in the knees when one pays attention to me. So I’m not sure but it definitely seems like a change in preference or at least an expanded gender pool to play in. Jmo

    The Journey

    Hello to everyone, my name is Traci Lynn from just outside of Austin, Tx. My male name was Tracyee Lynn, i wish to thank my Mom for choosing two androgenous names for her son at birth, thanks Mom! Hated my name throughout most of my life, most people called me Trace and I lived by that, now I am embracing my original name. Plus not so confusing for those who know me from earlier, family, friends, and my children. I started HRT back in october, and have never been happier. Coming out to my spouse was the hardest part, but a necessary step in my new life.i am the Maddie of triplet 2 year olds as well as older children. There is alot more to my story, as i am sure there is to everyones, but thats for another time. Hugs Traci Lynn

    You'll never satisfy a woman.

    Well, as my last psychotherapist said to me during one of our termination sessions, "If you decide not to stay with your current spouse, you're going to have to start fishing in a different pond."🤔 Guess that pretty much applies to most, if not all. TG folks? Prior to hanging out here, I was pretty much of the opinion that one could almost guarantee that a transitioning person would be separated &/or divorced within 6-12 months of commencing transition (always exceptions, of course). [The number of elderly T's on this forum who have stayed in their marriages continues to surprises me.] You know, I was always dubious about whether a transitioning TG's sexual preferences/attractions truly change. I always subscribed the Kinsey-Pomeroy Continuum, and thought that the reports of changing attractions during/after transition were that transition freed up latent "same-sex" attractions, attractions that had for a variety of reasons had, heretofore, been suppressed/repressed.

    Are my parents too old for me to come out them?

    I recently came out at age 52. My entire family took it very well to super supportive. Accept my mother. She said I had killed her son. Now since then she has been ok but not accepting it still. “Not in 1000 years will I ever see you as a women”. Now this being said my mother and I have always had a strained relationship so please don’t read into it. To me I’m good either way. Now I didn’t tell you this to discourage you but you know your folks better then we do. It sounds like you kind of know their reactions so I say take it really slow and just be honest. If they take I badly then just deal with the fall out. You are who you are and have every right to be happy too. I did not think my mother would take this stance nor did my sister who has had hundreds of talks with her. It’s sad she is missing out on a wonderful daughter that pretty similar to her son.

    I Fell Apart

    I guess that I too am "abnormal" as my left breast is the smaller one😕 It's not quite as firm as the right one either.

    Good morning All. Coffees on.

    Heather and I been making up for lost times big time even before the paternity test done.I did show her the old pictures of me as male and our relationship is going great.Heather says I am a great grandparent to her one year old son,said I am invited to his 2nd birthday party next month.Did spread my dad's ashes over the lake he loved to fish at yesterday,Mom did it.My friend Kevin is a great helicopter pilot flying over it at a safe speed doing it.My family and I know he is at peace there.
  22. Maddie, I agree with you completely. Please don't take my words as misunderstanding you. My older sister and my youngest daughter do not understand and can't accept my being trans, but that is ok by me. I can't change the way they think, however I can try to help them understand that I am the same person that they have known all their lives, it's just that who I am doesn't match my anatomy and never did. I would not have reacted the way Alex did (no offence Alex). I would have taken the opportunity to try to help them understand that I am just as human as they are.

    Am I being “too much”?

    Oh no hon I did not take it wrong at all. I actually respond well to tough love and sometime you just need to be told the bare bones truth by a person to finally get it. Goddess only knows there are many here that need some tough love. Though what you said was nothing like that. We are good!
  24. ShawnaLeigh

    I Fell Apart

    Yes I know. Does make it want to grow and faster though. LOL Though happily they are both equally sore so growing still. Its my left that is smaller @Jani so I am continuing to beak all the molds.

    Am I being “too much”?

    Patti I don't think your reply was over analytical, just honest. Sorry to hear about not being able to sleep. I know the feeling well. Take care and find some time to rest. Jani

    mens and ladies shoe sizes

    Cara, Look at the top of the page on the green bar. At the far left side is "Transpulse". Select it and you'll be taken to the Transgender Pulse resource page. There is a Resources link with a list of values that contains Clothing Size Charts. At the bottom is a section on shoes. The conversion begins with your foot size in inches. I hope this helps. You might be able to find other conversion data online. Jani
