That's great Sally. I will watch for it.

I just finished A Shot in the Bark, one of the dog park mysteries. (hey they are fun and sometimes I need fun).

Just started one of the Bones books "Devil Bones". I am trying to get through her whole series.

If editing a novel counts as reading a book, the one that I am 'reading' now is tentatively titled "Never Stop Dreaming" and while originally written 14 years ago (I guess that makes it a period piece as I am not planning on updating it - only polishing it) it does not contain anything at all about trans issues - I was still in total denial.

I am not sure what name will be used as the author because it was written from the perspective of the male lead, any suggestions?

Sorry for the shameless plug but when I found this one and the half written one from the same period I had to read them and you know what - I liked them!

Watch for Never Stop Dreaming to hit Amazon sometime next month and if it sells I will work harder to get the next one finished.

Love ya,

Sally

Sally, did you ever get your book published on amazon

Mike,

My first book - the poetry one is available on Amazon but if you would like an autographed copy, send me PM and we can exchange information- no additional charge fro the priceless (or is that worthless) inscription.

Love ya,

Sally

After my previous Post I finished "Conundrum".

I'm currently reading "My Husband Betty" by Helen Boyd.

Almost finished that one too. Winter is good for reading.

Huggs, :wub:

I started reading "How Green Was My Valley," after having seen the movie recently. Pretty good so far.

Last week I finished books 1 thru 5 of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin.

Then I read Janet Mock's book Redefining Realness. I can really appreciate her book and the struggles that she went through. As I have been here in Hawaii since 1992 while I was still in the Navy. I started my transition here in Hawaii in 2010 and have heard about some of her story while I was in transition.

I also just finished Kristen Beck's book Warrior Princess. This is another book that I could relate to. Having spent 20 years in the Navy onboard Submarines and having worked with the SEAL community while on those Submarines.

Finished off "Stone Butch Blues" in 3 days.

Just could not put in down.

Impossible to read and to keep a dry eye at the same time. :blush:

Next up should be "Butch is a Noun".

I think this will be my last reading for a while. I can always hope.<giggle>

I think I've done a lot of reading this winter. :dunno:

"Cosmos" by Carl Sagan. Can't wait to find out how it ends (fire or ice? :huh: ).

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. Between him, Christopher Hitchens, and the videos on YouTube by The Atheist Experience, they've pretty much converted (de-converted?) me.

The "highlights" of Dawkins and Hitchens on YouTube are very funny.

"Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme" was a bit of a let down after "Stone Butch Blues".

None the less it was an interesting read.

On to "Butch is a noun" by S. Bear Bergman.

Don't judge...

I'm currently reading "50 Shades Darker".

I bought "50 Shades of Gray" a few months ago, just to see what all the fuss was about and I ended up reading it in a weekend, so I decided to buy the 2nd book in the series and see how the story continues. Also...I'm not a reader. The last time I cracked open a book was in college...

^^^ So, what do you think of them, Lizzie?

I have mixed feelings. The steamy scenes were lovely but just as things were heating up, they'd stop and do something else. Lame! lol

I really fell for the love story and I actually cried at the end because I completely understood where Ana was coming from. Because I had thrown myself into the book over a weekend and the story was so intense and emotional...I actually had to take a week or two off from reading before I could start the second book. I had to recover!

The second book has been interesting so far. I'm not reading it as intensely as the first one, just little bits here and there when I feel like reading. I'm looking forward to the movie, to see what they do with it. Also so I can be a snob and say "the book was so much better!" :P

I LOVE the first book! One of my favorites. The second I wasn't a fan of. Do they get better?

      They have done so already I am afraid.  Nothing new really, but Cass included views of our home brewed bigots to create this.

      Met up with a teacher I had back in high school and went good.Was 27 years ago I last saw her after I graduated.Walked into her classroom and we hugged calling me Adrianna.Remembered seeing me as male seeing I was holding something in.Told her I am much happier now and said she noticed it now.Even said seen me as an 18 year old and now as a 45 year old transwoman.Did get to walk down the halls bringing back lots of memories too.Ran into another teacher I had too.She said I changed big time.Told her I go as Adrianna now,transgender on the hormones.Also said she noticed I was unhappy at times and I am much happier now.I did take a picture with both of these two

      Hi, Kayla.   Another Bluenoser!  (Actually, I'm not a real one.  I am a CFA.)    I can't answer your question about the effects of spiro alone.  I started on spiro and estrogen at the same time.  I expect that spiro alone might relieve some dysphoria symptoms, but would not start any physical changes.  But that is just a guess.  The big thing with spiro is to drink enough water, since it is a powerful diuretic.   I started out getting my transition care from the Halifax Sexual Health Centre, but once my hormone regime was stable, I asked my GP if she would be comfortable taking over my prescription.  She was, so I no longer have to do the long commute into the city.   Regards, Kathy

      I can't answer your question since my doc's plan didn't start that way, but I do love to quote what she said to me when we began HRT when I see a post like this, "Let's get this party started!"

      Thanks for listening Vidanjali. And don’t worry, I am now planning two weeks off before I try to write a more in-depth response. I am well aware of how much Cass has been hurting me.

      Thank you, Mindy! Such a warm welcome!! I’m excited and honoured to be here !! 😊

      I don't need that "new math."  My brain does it on its own.
    • Willow
      You know the advantages we had using long division and multiplication, slide rules and log table?  We can look at a result and know right away if something is wrong with it. Kids that have grown up using calculators can hit keystrokes on their calculator but they have no clue that the answer is wrong when there is a factor of ten that they messed up.  Also we learned our basic math tables inside out and upside down. They use this new math that mixes everything up.

      Good afternoon Kayla,   Welcome to Transgender Pulse Forum, I hope you find this place as helpful and fun as I do. There are so many people from all walks of life, and locations in the World. Look around and join in on any threads you find interesting.   Best wishes, stay positive and motivated,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Hi All,   So today, I finally met with my Nurse Practitioner in her office to officially go over HRT for me. A little bit of background about gender affirming care in my province I live in - Doctors and NP’s now have the authority to perform gender affirming care as per a new directive recently. I only know because 6 weeks ago when I met with her and telling her about who I truly am, she said that before our appointment she was in a province wide zoom meeting with the sexual health centre in Halifax about gender affirming care and them explaining to all the PCP’s that if they can handle gender affirming care in the community as it would help save resources to focus on the more sensitive clientele such as children and teens.   At the end, I had to sign a document ensuring I understood everything. I grabbed the document so fast and signed away !!   So, she prescribed XXmg of spiro daily in the morning (Anti-Androgen) to start for 4 weeks and then seeing how I respond to that, she’s going to then start me on Estrogen pills. I already have a follow up appointment booked at the end of June.   I trust my NP wholeheartedly, kinda disappointed that I didn’t get the E, but I totally understand why. I’m a little nervous with the side effects however of Spiro, but regardless of side effects I’m going ahead with the plan and trusting in process and becoming who I’m truly supposed to be.   Question though as I’m curious - I know it’s a low dose of spiro but even then what sort of changes can I see from just the spiro alone without the e for those first 4 weeks?    thanks everyone!!   Kayla

      Yes I do... Creating/Building handcrafted gifts for family and friends using wood or metal. Camping and all the things you think could go with that, hiking, fishing, hunting, bird watching, meeting new people, and music festivals. Bluegrass, Folk, Americana. Seeing new parts of the world, and historical locations. Star gazing.   My father use to say he didn't trust anyone that didn't have at least to vises. I'm not so worried about your vises, however I don't think anyone should have less than two hobbies.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      We were not allowed to use calculators in high school.  Even if we could afford one, $80 (in 1970 dollars!) would only get you a four-function calculator, so it would have been pointless anyway.  Everything was slide rules and longhand.  Being a math nerd, that was no hardship for me.   When my brothers and I were cleaning out my father's house after he passed, I found a couple of slide rules in his wife's desk.  I appropriated them and still have them, my own having been foolishly tossed years ago.

      That is lovely, Charlize.  Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, and congrats on your "anniversary."  It's always been the little things that make me happiest about being a woman outwardly, and I'm glad that it's the same for you.  Getting older can sometimes be unpleasant and difficult, but we who transitioned later in life can appreciate the changes transition has brought us, as much as, or perhaps more than, someone who transitioned young.    HUGS   Carolyn Marie
