      Its been an interesting day. People I've avoided for a few years have been phoning me up. One of my cousins was on the phone for three hours. It makes me wonder if I've just been punishing myself for the last four years? I've been inviting old friends back with a short messenger messages explaining who I am. Take-up is really good. Even one of my neighbours along the street has accepted a friend request and we've never said much more than "Morning, or Hi" Turns out she's a counsellor and fascinated by my situation. A long lost sister has been in touch and wants to meet the new me... She never met the old me, but never mind      I'm not really a fan of Facebook, but as a tool for contacting old friends and broadcasting "News" there is nothing else. Again, I appear to have enough support to cover anything one miserable old relative has to say. Even if he is the head of the family.

      I am going to also say what others have said but elaborate a little.   Linda, You always most certainly dress the part and the best thing about it, you dress to your strengths. You have got to grips with looking what other women of your age wear (No disresepct intended. We are all getting older) and use that to fill your everyday with a certain class that only a woman of your standing could.

      https://www.si.com/college/2021/04/09/leaders-on-ncaa-remove-competition-states-anti-trans-athlete     IMO, those on the right supporting this legislation want this kind of reaction.  They want the boycotts, b/c they want the war with the LGBTQ community.  It stokes the base, drives the funding appeals.  It's a quandary.   Carolyn Marie

      Welcome to Transpulse, Alex!        I am fairly new here and I just wanted to let you know that there are fantastic people here.   I'm sure you will be talking with others who have the same struggles as you soon.   I fully sympathize with you and respect your issues.   I just happen to have the exact opposite problems and needs.   You can still talk with me any time about any facet of gender issues.   I am far more Non-Binary, just from a female spirit.      much love, ---WILLOW---

      @Susan R according to the item description it is supposed to be a water proof bond. I just tried going without the bra today and after about 7 hrs they were still 90% attached.  The forms I got were originally adhesive but not very good, basically just enough to stay in place with a bra. I did t try anything crazy (yet) just wanted to see if they really would stay on without a bra. I will let you how they hold up during workouts and such as I try them.    Forms are the Y-NOT silicone breast forms in Nude-C from Amazon   Adhesive kit is here https://www.glamourboutique.com/buy/breast-forms/breast-form-adhesives/budget-breast-form-adhesive-kit

      Hello all,     Name is Alex and for about 15 years now I have struggled with my body dysmorphia- specifically referring to my breasts. I identify as nonbinary and don't prefer any pronouns. My legal name is Alex and that's what I prefer people to call me. I'm 6 ft (born female) and have size DD? (i dont know because I only wear sports bras...never been properly fitted for a bra but trust me, they're hard to miss) and again, for about 15 years have always worn double sports bras, taped them down, smush them across my chest so it looks like theres just pec muscles. I am a very outgoing and confident person but I know this has been limiting me for the past 15 years. I'm never comfortable having them out during sex, and everything else that involves them. I have called doctors offices to get quotes, briefly spoke about body dysmorphia to a therapist (who wasn't that great so that was a one time and done type of thing) but even if im home alone I dont choose to walk around topless (although I so desperately want to) because they're just there.... hanging out.     I really hope/pray that someone on this forum has gone through a similar experience and has chosen elective surgery to remove them. if this is you, PLEASE reach out to me. I would love to hear your experience.    Thank you all for your time. Have a wonderful night.

      Shay,        I will have to read the book, I have never read it.   Jamie

      It's really interesting, our stories are similar. I am 20 years older than you, but when I was your age is when it really hit me as well. A lot of things just kind of came together at that age for me and I realized I wanted to be like a girl, even tho I didn't really think of it in those terms. I was doing things like shaving my body hair, finding an excuse to use a women's razor even to shave my face, etc. Before that age I had still hated my facial and body hair, my voice, how I looked, but I just didn't make the connection. I don't think I thought of it as a phase, more like something I was scared to pursue so I quit. I wish I would have stuck with it. Since you are young, you do have plenty of time to explore it and see what really fits for you.

      Greetings @leongreen and welcome.  It is not unusual to have feelings of doubt.   Particularly when you have made a change as you have.  As you are younger than I, it could be a phase but only you can say if this is so.  Remember you have time to mull this over before you decide to take further steps.  Take time to get comfortable with the "new" persona you are occupying.  Eventually you will determine if it fits or needs adjustment, just like a new shirt!  Also consider that you can evolve and still maintain certain attributes of your prior life that you find enjoyable or desirable to have.  There are no rules except the ones you make.  Do not confine yourself to a box.  The world is yours to live in!  Please join in the conversation.  I know you will be comfortable with the group here.    Cheers, Jani

      Watched  Boy Meets Girl.   It was pretty good.   But now I'm crushing on Michelle Hendley.  I'll get over it.

      I had just about every breast form made in every material and size way back in the 80’s but I never splurged and bought a pair of those adhesive breast forms. I always wanted to try them but back then there was no internet to get reviews or ask anyone about them. Let us know how you like them. Are you able to jog, run, or go down a stairs and feel them move like the real thing? That’s what I was curious about so many years ago when I first heard they existed.   Susan R🌷

      Welcome @leongreen, It’s a pleasure to meet you. It’s good to reach out with questions...especially gender related questions here. I personally can’t say I had this experience with sudden onset questioning of my gender. It’s something I always knew and had to deal with from the get go but I am sure there are others here who have had this happen to them. We all have such unique backgrounds and stories which make it nice to compare notes. I wonder if there was a recent trauma or trigger that brought this to the forefront. In my case, I was suppressing my GD the best I knew how but a few major triggers started the ball rolling to help me see I needed to complete my transition. Maybe something similarly related happened in your case too. It might be something to talk about with a close friend who you could trust as an ally. Maybe one or both of your parents even. I don’t know your family dynamics but if that was possible that would be another good place to start. They might help you with getting therapy to dig a little deeper into these questions you’re having regarding your Gender Identity.   I hope to read more of your journey as it develops. I think you’ve found a wonderful resource in this group so don’t be afraid to explore your feelings, emotions and ideas here. We are here to help!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      More updates   I've been trying to see if I can get an earlier appointment with my endo but so far no luck, can't really go on the waiting list for cancellations because of my work schedule.  Got a gel nail kit ordered, supposed to be here sometime tomorrow.  Also got a new adhesive kit for my breast forms, so far it works great and I can go braless if I want to.  Spent the last couple of days playing "how in the heck does this go together?!" with a couple of exercise machines. But I got them together with only 5 spare parts (jk)
