      Good morning everyone. I am feeling tired his morning and it is another slow day at work, so that isn't helping. I am looking forward to having tomorrow off and the wife and I are going to go for a drive in the country which will be nice. I am going to be seeing my mom for the first time since coming out on Saturday, so that will be interesting. I am wondering what she is expecting, which I probably shouldn't be worrying about, but yet here I am. I am not sure what I am expecting myself to be honest.

      Good Morning!   Elizabeth that is wonderful news! I remember that moment I received my new work badge, was like a young child getting the toy they wanted so badly for Christmas!    Waking up this morning to my regular and tiresome routine. Hate to say this, but I’m ready to go back to work in about 4 weeks. While dilating and such keeps me busy, I’m getting more and more stir crazy in the house. As flu season approaches, I know my ICU I work in will be hit hard with the combination of the sick CoVID patients. I’m ready to return to being a Nurse!    So, about to shower and get myself together for another Doctors appointment and to get my nails done.    Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

      Good Morning Ladies! I'm sensing lots of good vibes here this morning. I'm loving all the positive changes I'm seeing in everyone's lives. Keep it up girls. Emily, good luck with the consult. I'm probably going that route in a year once eligible from a time of hormones perspective.  I would love to just do SRS instead but that's going to be a much longer wait time and I would rather get off the spiro faster and reduce the E needed since I'm older.   Today's adventure: Consult for laser tattoo removal.  I've got a big celtic knotwork tat on each deltoid area that looks terribly male and I don't do sleeveless because of it.  The big back piece I might live with for a while since I don't see it and most clothes cover it anyways.     I feel like I need more coffee . I rushed my two cups this morning since I over slept and didn't get to enjoy them. I don't need the added caffeine though.  Tomorrow I'm gonna set an alarm.

      Great morning everyone    the birds are singing their happy songs, the sky is a beautiful blue and the sun is smiling down at us!  What a great day.   And what a good news day for Emily and Liz and several of my local friends too.  Even for me, my wife and I are starting  to recover.  I guess having our kids (who are middle age which in it self is hard to imagine) sit down with us and force some difficult answers has pushed us along.  I think we were stuck on a plateau falling back but never moving forward. now we are climbing up again. It’s great for me and brings tears to my eyes.   Charlize, I haven’t seen you on here in a while.  I trust all is ok?     well, time to enjoy this great day.   hugs   Willow

      Good morning everyone, the temp outside is 44° and 64° inside. Welcome to Fall, the coffee is still hot, black, and strong. #GoPink #OctoberCacerAwarnessMonth #BreastCancerAwarnessMonth #SusanGKomen #SafeTheTaTas   Hugs for all,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      I am happy this topic seems to be resonating.  @Berni I will see if I can find a more extensions feelings list but be assured any feeling you or others wish to express is completely welcome.   I am ecstatic that we can and all of you so far have been so open and honest. It helps me me and I hope it helps you.   Heather Shay

      Yup, fifty-something! The nightie i mentioned is..I think a 4XL..? Maybe 5? The male puberty fairy hit me pretty hard! (Didn't bother me at the time, I saw it as "rite of passage" and much-desired "growing up", but now I envy the transwomen who started early and avoided it.)   I think that size will go down a little bit when I lose the weight I need to, but even before I ever started considering transitioning, I'd already been thinking "Yea, I really should get a good sewing machine and learn how to make alterations and make my own clothes." At least I'm not totally a novice at it, I have sewn before, just not often enough to remember how to do it...and I never could keep a straight line!   I heard about a documentary series called "My Giant Life" about a few very large-frame women, probably even bigger than me from the sound of it. I should watch it, hopefully they'll talk about how they deal with clothing.

      The Italian Medicine Agency (AIFA), today, established that HRT will be free for people with a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Until yesterday only in Tuscany the drugs were provided by the National healt service.  From now on trans people can buy all the medicine they need in hospital pharmacies for free.  I’m very happy, such great news! 😊     Link (Italian https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ilpost.it/2020/10/01/terapia-ormonale-transgender-gratuiti/amp/)

      Thank you @Jacqui and @Jackie C.. Ive been kind low this last 2 weeks as I just came out to my wife, and she spends lots of time crying. I have to give her credit she is trying, but im just besting myself up a lot for it. Luckily I see my therapist today. I really hope some day I can finally like myself because a lifetime of not has been tough as I am sure you are familiar. But just encouragement and solidarity from wonderful women and guys in places like this help. So thank you.

      Why do confusers always demand change when you are happy and have finally gotten things to work?  Perverse!  
    • Charlize
      Finishing my first cuppa now.  Then out to trim hooves and care for 15 full sized goats.  With any luck they are going off in a couple of weeks to work at producing antibodies for covid therapy.  I am getting a bit old to deal with these horned animals who are often quite difficult.   After letting the pastures rest we are looking at establishing a herd of sheep.  Meanwhile the maple syrup season keeps me busy in the woods.  I'll be patching and rehanging tubbing soon.   Eizabeth, i remember floating with every thing that had my real name on it.  Getting something in the mail was bliss.  It is a big deal somehow to see that kind of confirmation!  Enjoy!   Berni, i feel your love of scarves.  A lovely accessory. In the summer here i wear bandanas or have them hanging from my waist.  Scarves are great in cooler weather or floating in the wind riding a scooter or motorcycle.   Emily, Good luck with your doctor.  Surgery is a big step.  I remember the excitement, doubt and fear i faced as i approached mine.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I am feeling hopeful and pleased.    Hopeful that the pain from my surgery six months ago might finally be starting to get better.  Not that it's all gone yet, far from it, and I am still somewhat disabled, but I am better than I was a couple of weeks ago.  Maybe I won't need a revision after all.   And I am pleased that my paperwork saga is drawing to a close with the arrival of my updated birth certificate this week.

      Early to rise again. Good thing I stock up on coffee essentials. I have a very long day ahead of me. Remote learning with the kids. Both of them are keeping very good grades so far. Then doctor's for me. I strongly dislike public adventures of all sorts, this kind especially. Today will be quite intrusive. I guess it's just going to have to be that way. At least I can race home afterwards and watch a movie with my kids. They calm me down a lot. Have a lovely day all.

      What I wouldn't give to experience some "loss of sensitivity"!  My recovery from "zero-depth vaginoplasty" (a.k.a. vulvoplasty) has been slow and painful.  (I am at six months post-op.)  Most of the pain has been focused on my neo-clitoris.  Trust me, it is plenty sensitive!   I have had to learn something about the anatomy of the neo-clitoris.  They remove two of the three erectile chambers from the penis.  The remaining one, with the glans / neo-clitoris at its tip, is folded in half over the pubic bone and stitched in place facing backwards.  It is still capable of arousal, though being folded and stitched in place, it doesn't become "erect".  The sensation is much as you'd expect.  It feels like having an erection in a tight gaff.   The inner labia are also formed from the glans.  The sensation is confusing, because the two labia and the clitoris all feel like they are still part of the glans.  I am slowly learning to tell them apart.   I can't tell you about sexual function, because my aparatus is still too painful to play with.  I have no worries about whether the sensation will be adequate!
