      This can be hard. In my case, my ex was also a stay-at-home mother, so when we split she had no income other than our SS and my unimpressive pension.  (The split happened before I came out - even to myself) We agreed to to split this evenly between us, although it is an "informal" arrangement.  I still feel obligated, since I have always viewed it as "our" money, and she had contributed as much as myself.  Fortunately, we did have 2 houses and no debts.  She stayed in the trailer, and I moved back into our old (very substandard) place. We each have enough to get by if we're frugal. She has a boyfriend now.   Personally, I think she has been able to move on pretty well.  As for myself, less so.  But that is a different subject.

      Tragically, Susan has larger breasts than I do and a narrower chest, so we're not going to be swapping bras. Also, hers are boring. Bleah.   We're both an XL top though and a 16 pants so we're close enough that we can swap clothes. Honestly, I have a couple of tops that she bought for herself and didn't fit her right, so they became my tops. Yay!   Hugs!

      Haha, I can relate!  My wife had one of those "Did I just say that" moments when she asked me to pick up a bra like I wear for her when I went to Ross

      Everyone is looking fabulous lately! ❤️ Today I'm just wearing my "some of us evolve differently" transition t-shirt that I picked up from Etsy and some black leggings. The thing about working from home (still!) is that I have to find reasons to put myself together in a real outfit. And failing that, feeling good about myself is reason enough sometimes... or really, always!   In no universe would I ever fit into any of my partner's stuff. It's probably better that way anyway - after I came out, that was still one of her very first questions whether I'd worn any of her things.   Love, ~Audrey.

      You should absolutely not operate your spear gun in your current state. 🦊   That breakfast sounds delicious though. WAY too much sugar for my diet right now, but I want some.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      I'm impressed that you asked. My spouse and I are more, "Is that my top?"   I'm not really sure why we have separate dressers to be honest.   Hugs!

      Hi everyone    if I start slurring my speargun, it’s the drugs.  OMG what a mess Siri can make.  Or did I slur that.  Hmm we’ll never know.    @Mmindy thanks for the digital hug.  Here is a hug back.   I know I’m not thinking strate. No strite. Oh gee wiz straight.  Lol just having a little fun.     My wife is being very good to me.  Tried to make a secret breakfast for me but unfortunately I was awake and needed meds and coffee.  I ruined her surprise.  But it was very good.  Pillsbury cinnamon rolls mixed with scrambled eggs and cook it in a crockpot. Add apple slices to taste. When done serve with maple or other syrup to your liking.   hugs   Willow

      Welcome, @I-think-im-a-girl1808, it's nice to meet you and I'm happy you've joined the community here at Trans Pulse. As the others have already said, this is an amazingly supportive community and you'll be in wonderful company here while you are at this stage in your journey. I also agree with everyone that connecting with a gender therapist is a great thing to do. That person can help you process your thoughts and feelings around your identity and expression and be an essential ally if you do take steps to transition medically or legally. I also wanted to share that I relate very much to those feelings of envy, and the elation when I took steps to express my femininity. I look forward to getting to know you better!   Love, ~Audrey.

      I love your confidence, it makes you shine and it's inspiring.  Nothing like a comfy hoodie!

      Salutations!   Yes, absolutely be sure about what you need. That's a good instinct. Transitioning is all about figuring out what you need to do to feel comfortable in your own body. Maybe that's presenting as a woman on weekends. Maybe it's full transition with all the surgeries. Maybe it's any number of steps between. The important thing is your comfort.   Now, as other people have said, a gender therapist will be able to help you figure out what's right for you. If you want to do anything besides dress, WPATH standards say you need a doctor's note from one anyway, so you may as well start a relationship sooner rather than later. We can give you advice and support, but the heavy lifting is going to be you and a professional.   So yeah, welcome to Transgenderpulse! We're glad you're here. Please feel free to join the discussion and ask whatever questions come to mind!   Hugs!

      There are more aggressive treatments like hair transplants/plugs. If you have testosterone and are losing hair, it will continue unless you go on blockers.  Blockers won't regrow lost areas but will stop the progression (usually). I have just a bit of thinning on the top but definitely have receding "widow" peak happening.  I started HRT so don't expect it to get worse and my curly hair can hide it unless I pull it back.  My plan for dealing with the front is to have some scalp transplanted to round out the front when I have FFS.   If you go the wig route, shorter hair is easier because not as much has to be tucked. Depending on the wig they can be fastened in with bobby pins, adhesive on forehead or just a "snug" fit.  Learning to wear a wig is a skill and you get what you pay for in them.  Good, natural looking ones can be expensive and they do wear out.
