      Hi Emily It was probably a shock to them and you mum sounds really good and that your dad was there means he cares as well even if he did not talk.  It's a start and in time it may well get better. Take care Carrie

      My wife and ate out with four friends on the socially-distanced patio at a local restaurant, last night.  We haven't seen them since last year.  I got an interesting comment: "Your face looks thinner."  Well, I guarantee that I haven't lost weight.  If my face is different, it must be because it is more feminine!   I didn't think my face was still changing that much.  It has been three and a half years since I started HRT.  But our friend noticed a difference in the last year.  That made my weekend! 😄

      Well my wife and I had lunch with my parents today and it was the first time I had seen them since March according to her I have changed a lot. So as we were were getting ready to leave my mom asked me point blank if I am getting a sex change. I just responded yes and I have been on hormones for 2 months now. Then I was asked well why and how long have you known this. I said because I was tired of being miserable and I didn’t want to kill myself over it I just wanted to be happy. I said I have felt different my entire life and that I’m finally doing something thing about it. I was then asked about my work and if they knew I said no I’m not ready for that yet. She replied That I don’t ever have to. I said that I do because I will be going full time and I will be getting a name change along with everything else. Then it was asked why didn’t I tell her sooner I said the only people that knew was my wife and sister no one else it’s not a subject I am comfortable with the world knowing. All in all I think it went ok she did hug me before we left there wasn’t really anything negative said. My dad on the other hand never said a word and barely looked up from his phone

      So, after about four years and my mind changed on a good many things in absentia from the site: Hello again! I'm Lunitaria - a name I crafted for myself that I have been using for a few years now. I'ma non-binary person that is leaning very much towards an actual gender affirmation, or transition (not being sure of the proper term to use). I was raised in a predominantly religious family and spent many years living with them and the... birth name that was given to me. I've been working in or at a computer for longer years than I can fully remember. I am taking the now-delayed and complicated steps towards fully revealing the self that has been hidden for most of my lifetime, because I find that I do have a family that supports me now, and live somewhere that allows somewhat better access to the needed resources for proper care.

      Hi Susan - thanks! It's been an interesting ride. Back when I transitioned I would never have guessed that trans*folk would be anywhere near as visible as is now the case, let alone a common subject in the media. There was a lot less info back then and finding therapists, access to HRT, and surgical options was sparse. When I first started feeling the waters with transitioning, it was in the mid 90s. At that time it seemed near impossible, but got a little better closer to 2000 as the internet was really starting to populate and access to information increased, which was an immense help. I will forever be grateful for and admire those who transitioned earlier than that. The world was so much less accepting prior to the 90s.     Thanks Sara!   Thanks KayC!

      Hammertime,   All of the recommendations made by everyone that has commented previously are terrific, however, makeup usage and application is such a personal science.  Therefore, to offer you advice, it would help to know a little more about you and your objectives.  To offer recommendations, I'd like to know if you are trying to hide masculine flaws, or, are you blessed with androgynous features that don't require any camouflage?  Makeup tips that "transform" are quite a bit more involved and require specialized products and techniques that really aren't suitable for genetic women, or those in our sisterhood who possess flawless skin and feminine features.   I'm one of those women who uses makeup to help transform and camouflage my masculine features.  To achieve such ends, I apply makeup a little more heavily than a genetic woman might.  Still, with careful techniques and the right products, I have learned to create a very natural appearance.  I can't say that people don't notice I'm wearing makeup, but the way I apply it makes it look natural.   So, let us all know what you are trying to achieve, and our advice can be more focused and specific.

      It could be that he is reading apprehension in your attempt to not seem pushy. I totally get why you might worry about being too pushy though. Like others have suggested, maybe shoot him a text when you feel up to it. Maybe you can arrange a skype 'date; or something!

      https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2020/07/04/erica-coates-cork-ireland-farmer-comes-out-transgender-joe-duffy-liveline-rte-radio/   We've got a couple of farmers on this site about at that age.  Hmmmm, maybe farming and being trans go together?  😄   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you for the thumbs up dear Carolyn. I do a lot fancy films of the old period.
    • Carolyn Marie
      I saw it and yes, I thought it was well done.  I was not a huge fan of the series as my wife was, but this was a very well made, well acted story that stands on its own.  That said, it does help if you're at least familiar with the characters and their back stories.   Carolyn Marie

      Has any one watched the film (not the episodes)?   I want to buy it today and I don't want to give 20 dollars if it not good to Apple. I am so bored today, in fact all Sundays I feel that way. Unfortunately, they don't have it for rent on Apple TV, I see it only as Buy It, so is it worth it?
    • Ursula
      Hey Sara! I’m pretty new to this whole shebang too and just wanted to say that you couldn’t have picked a more lovely or open community forum! it already sounds like you’re being an amazing supportive partner and really a transition isn’t something that should come between you.  I have benefit immensely from therapy, just having a third party to discuss my feelings with and who can offer profession insights is great.  I would say not to downplay how you feel, she’s going through a lot but so are you x  love xx
    • Ursula
      Hey! Thank you for your responses  I’ll be doing a bit more research and I’m sure my ex will too xx
