      @Chloe Cozee Hope you were able to get back to sleep.     Interesting afternoon yesterday. I am taking a delivery to a commercial customer. My phone goes off. It is my youngest. So I break policy and answer. 'We are stuck on the summit*'  Turns out they were stuck stuck. we had a band of snow blow through and made the roads real interesting. It was nice and icy and put the car in the ditch. I tell them OK I'll head up when I get off. (that delivery was my last thing to do)   So drop my parts off and head back to the store. I am counting out and get another call. don't bother the road is closed and will take you forever to get here. So I go home. I text an hour later, still stuck. roadside insurance has them in a totally wrong. They call another tow company. they have no small wreckers available at the moment.    they have law enforcement call for one. after almost 4 hours and $225 less they get home. When I could have save the money and time and did it. I however keep my mouth shut. don't want to start and argument.   Kymmie     * the summit is the highest point on Interstate 80 at 8100ft above sea level. It has a nice 5% down grade in about 6-7 miles. It is fun when dry. I've came down it any where from 10mph all the way over triple digits

      As my wife woke up at our usual hour of 5:30am I pulled the covers back over my head thinking- I'm not working today, I'm sleeping in for a change.  The warmth of the bed was calling me back.  Unfortunately, I thought about all the stuff I wanted to get done in my personal life and my head started spinning so up I got and headed down for some Sumatran Peaberry deliciousness.   On the agenda today: finish sewing a dress I'm making (or at least get it mostly done), distilling some rum, heading off to the apple store for computer repair and- watch some football.  I'm not sure I can get all that done.  I need a week off work to get caught up in life. lol. @Chloe CozeeI hope you wake up migraine free. I get HA from dehydration periodically but not migraines. I can't imagine those ;(.  Happy Sunday ladies

      This! Hi Brianna, it's nice to meet you and I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you're facing with your wife. My partner has also struggled to accept me since I came out as a binary trans woman, started presenting myself in a more feminine way, and began HRT. I will say that the idea of being in a lesbian relationship has been especially hard for my partner, and she has many of the fears Jackie described. My partner and I are striving to keep open and honest communication so we can share about our feelings, rather than keeping them hidden where they can fester into anger, resentment, or worse. Since I came out last summer, my words and actions have shown her that I remain committed to our relationship. She also understands that I have the same anxiety about it too, so there is mutual reassurance, and I feel it's helped us grow together rather than apart. When new challenges come up in the future, we will have a solid foundation of love to face them from. Also, joint therapy sessions can be a great help too as the other posters have suggested. Wishing you the best!   Love, ~Audrey.

      Dear @gina-nicole-t, I'm sorry to hear about your experience on social media. It's for reasons like what you describe, as well as keeping a lower profile online due to my profession, that I avoid social media altogether. Mainstream media does no favors to anyone by promoting standards out of reach of all but a lucky few. As a result, body image issues are something that so many people struggle with, myself included. Dealing with those issues *and* being transgender adds complexity because of the dysphoria involved. There is also the very real relationship between the ability to pass, and staying safe in spaces that may not be accepting of transgender people. I strongly believe in body positive thinking. I'm working hard on overcoming my insecurities with my body during transition, but it certainly isn't easy to break out of those cycles of negative thinking. Most of all, surrounding myself with supportive and affirming people goes a long way towards building that self-esteem!   Love, ~Audrey.

      Seconded, a joint session would probably do both of you good. Presuming your wife can deal with being a lesbian by marriage, she needs to understand that the person she loves isn't going away. HRT isn't going to turn you into a sex maniac hungry for boy bits. I actually saw a statistic the other day (not sure how accurate it was, but it felt about right) that only about 25% of us (MtF) are straight. By straight I mean into men if that's not clear. So you have no plans to leave her. You're still going to be yourself, you'll just have softer skin, less body hair and breasts. I mean sure you're also going to be more emotional too, there will be some personality changes but it's not going to turn you into Ms. Hyde. Just different bits of your personality rotate around to become more prominent while others fade into the background. It's subtle, but you're still you.   That was more than I intended, but the core is that you're still going to be you and you're not going to go anywhere unless she pushes you away. It might help her to hear that from somebody else. Someone with letters after their name.   Hugs!

      Greetings UKenby, welcome to the forums.   I think my personal suggestion would be to speak to your doctor in confidence about this. At this current time you can even do it over the phone or videolink, at least, that is how my practice does things currently.   If your health centre is like mine, you would have a choice of speaking to your family doctor, or any other within the practice. And of course, this consultation is protected under Patient Doctor confidentiality.

      I love that quote. That applies to so many things and people in society today. Especially the people.
    • gina-nicole-t
      @Susan R oh yeah on social media related to transgender you would be surprised at the amount of people who want to make sure you fit into their box, and if you don't out you go with a very swift kick. The fact is I still have many trans friends on my social media site that never abandoned me, it just appears to be the ones who think that their beauty rises above, and believe they can set standards for everyone else. I believe that is what leads to body image issues with everyone not just trans women, but cis women, and men who hate how they look also. I have a few trans friends that are very attractive, but they never rub it in anyone's face. They are some (like you) of the nicest people I have ever met. I guess it goes to show only some people use their beauty for power, and others not.  Gina

    • Susan R
      So sorry to hear about this, Gina. I can’t even see this person’s logic in requiring you to post any avatar pic whatsoever.  It’s this sort of thing that has kept me off of all mainstream social media sites but I had no idea that this stuff could happen on a ‘community’ based social media site put in place to specially serve and help members like us.   Susan R🌷

      As far as I understand thats perfectly normal for all women. I think I read somewhere that those kind of low grade feelings are from liking how you look,when you feel attractive and confident about yourself and really great about yourself you get strong attractive feelings. Cause feeling sexy is sexy. I think a lot of women get that way sometimes on a good day from what I understand.
