      @Bri2020 love the dress!! @Elizabeth Star looking good! It is amazing what HRT will do.  Often the changes are subtle and take time, but they are there. I looked at pix of myself from 12 and 18 months ago and the changes are amazing!   And, yes, I am loving post-surgery. There is still swelling, but being in the right body is an amazing feeling. A couple years ago it was just a dream, so far away, but dreams do come true.

      @Mmindy @Bri2020 actually I’m about an hour away from Frederick too.  And similarly about an hour from Reston.  I’m at my daughters house near Winchester va.   Bri a number of years ago we lived in Centreville. We would load the bikes up and ride the W&OD, or the C&O, the Curtis or Mount Vernon trails. Ive ridden. All except the C&O from beginning to end. I’m probably 30 miles short on the C&O western end.  That’s something we miss, all the bike trails we used to ride.   Willow

      Attempting play the male "pursuer" role in dating. I am sooo just not wired for that.   That, and the time a few years ago when I had to move in with my dad for awhile. Yeech!   Coming out to my mom was actually, I won't say easy, but definitely somewhat less difficult by comparison.

      If a trans athlete ever wins a big match/race/event, you'll hear never ending bitching and hysterics from the Right, but when a trans athlete doesn't win, you will always hear...crickets.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you . . . @Jandi @Shay @Astrid @Charlize hugs, Davie

      Quitting heroin and all the ensuing years of getting my ish together. Amazingly, part of my strategy was: grow your hair long, quit wearing men's clothes and shoes, act like a lady, figure out what "being yourself" means, and "fit in". As you can see, some of those goals were contradictory, but I didn't know it at the time. Heroin was my self-medication of choice. Somehow I managed to get through a graduate program in mathematics with no drugs despite dealing with ptsd and psychotic depression. I'm doing MUUUUUCH better now. What's interesting about this question is that I realize in retrospect that some of the hardest things I've forced myself to do have been along the lines of giving up self-destructive behavior. Besides dealing with drug addiction and mental illness, this also includes discovering more truth about who I am and consequently shedding habits, behaviors, and sometimes people that/who were holding me back. Thanks for this thought provoking question @Shay.

      Not to discount the existance of male privledges, of course, but personally, I always felt weighed down and held back by maleless, like it's just one giant ball of social restrictions, and also causes people to view me with suspicion by default. Always hated all of that. Envied the heck out of girls for all of that, even with the bad things they're more likely to have to deal with. It's like, "Umm, I volunteer to trade places! Any takers? No?..."   I haven't found too much physical issues with wallet in the back pocket, but that's probably because I have an excess of built-in padding back there, 😋. But lately I've taken to keeping it in front pocket anyway. I figure it's harder to get pickpocketed that way.

      Update: she replied again a few hours ago and here's what she said... I'm gonna try to do what she said and get into contact with her a little more to see if she knows anything else and can help me more...

      Me....everytime it happens lol.... Just this Saturday I broke one trying to one grip the air fryer basket thing while scrubbing it, and it slipped and the pressure went all to my nails. Luckily it didn't break all the way to the bottom so was able to file it down and still have it be almost 1/4" long, visibly shorter than the others, but at least not just a finger nub.

      That's just an hour away from me. Frederick is a cool town. They really revitalized the historic district there.

      Well stated Willow,   Coffee was early, because I’m driving from Indy to Frederick, MD to teach at the Fire Academy Tuesday through Thursday.    Best wishes, and positive energy,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      I’ve circled back to an old outfit. Just thought it would be fun to post a then and now. The first picture is the same one from page 1 of this thread, back in November of ‘20 and the second is today. Same clothes just 9 additional months of HRT.

      Forgot one of my favorite ZZ TOP riffs.

      Nice dress.   Shoes are a problem.  It's hard to find anything bigger than 12, and even those are rare.  (and usually tight)
