      Have the chin strap of your hard hat under your chin, buckle the seat and shoulder straps securely, keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times and enjoy the ride.  Toooowhoot toooowhoot.

      Congratulations!   Now you too can say, "-what the heck-! I had my injection ten minutes ago! I should already be a woman!"   Strongly recommend the Bowsette the Queen Koopa series of transmemes on YouTube. Not all of them apply, but there's always one or two that make me laugh out loud.   Hugs!

      OK, so first off... two weeks isn't really a drop in the bucket. You might not see physical changes for six months. Mental changes happen quicker. I really started to notice around the second month. I think part of that is that we allow ourselves to be more in tune with our feminine side and let the male conditioning drop away. Like my endocrinologist told me; it takes about two months for your hormones to settle into the new normal. Then there's more blood work until they get the dosage right. On that note, I had no issue with "male performance" right up until about eighteen months when I had my GCS. Total non-issue for me, though I understand others have had trouble.   Secondly, don't feel pressured to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. If you don't want the HRT, then don't take the HRT. Do what makes you comfortable in your own skin. That's the whole point. If that's crossdressing on weekends, then do that. We need to find our own paths. What's right for one person might not be right for another. Never let yourself feel pressured into doing something you're not sure about because it's "the right thing" to do.   Hugs!

      I just saw my NP at Equitas (virtually) for my first consult and just need to have doctor records transferred and next week I begin my HRT.   Thank all of you SO MUCH for your support and I could never have gotten this far without.   I'm ready to join the SISTERHOOD,   Shay

      Thanks KayC, It's really easy to focus on fear then the positive changes which are to come.

      Well, I’m in the waiting room having coffee and just completed all the digital paperwork. Met lots of other people like myself. Great experience so far. Will be with him (Dr. Stiller) shortly😁   Susan R🌷

      ok not really hear to ask but yea still don't know my gender but i think i narrowed it down to bigender, tans (i don't know if its transgender or transexual yet), and gender fluid. there really is so many pieces 1. before this school year i never even cared about it but i was closed off to care yet 2. I've wondered what my life might have been like if i was born a girl 3. there's a girl side of me right now its like a different version of me but not like a split personality i know this because met someone in a VR game that just brought the whole side out but he's just a friend 4. the parts of me that I've known is strong right now stronger than the girl side and 5. never really liked my voice when i hear a recording of it for me it doesn't even sound like me at all for me    all of these and yea i still don't know i know i don't have to label myself of my gender so i do settle on one if it feels right and so that's another thing to consider because that's closer to gender fluid but i decide my gender right? so i still say unknown but most likely one of the 3, right now transgender and i think maybe bigender soon (as i said I'm probably genderfluid even tho I'm not saying i am yet. does it seem like i am?)

      Morning all, back to the daily grind. for now, closing the next three days. next weeks schedule isn't put up yet.   Kind of looking forward to the interview tomorrow. But I'm not gonna lie, the thought of leaving my family scares the crap out of me. I know it is my best interest. as I know I cannot be who I need to be living here. There is now way in heck I can live here and not be with my wife. Then there is leaving my sons. I still haven't had any true conversations with my oldest in 3 months.   Hugs to all my friends.   Kymmie
