I just wanted the folks here who have or think they may have a drinking problem that there are at this point 4 transgendered Zoom meetings available. The times are Thursday at 9:00 eastern, Saturday at 6:00 eastern and Monday at 7:00 eastern (now Sunday at 8:00 EST as well). I have found them to be wonderful with the trans* spectrum from all around the word in real time meetings. It is also possible to not turn on a camera if one is worried about privacy.

I am not the only person from Trans Pulse who attends. If going to real life straight meeting is difficult or not, these meetings offer a great alternative. To join us please an e-mail to https://oso-aa.org/mailman/listinfo/tggroup_oso-aa.org . You will be sent links to join us. or PM me here at Trans Pulse and i'll help.

Hope to see you there.

Hugs,

Charlize

Might want to see if you can get this pinned?

I agree it's a wonderful opportunity to engage with sisters and brothers from far and wide...

I might go to the one on Saturday, Thursday is definitely out of the question. Besides, my looks have changed. ;)

Our looks are not as important as our desire for sobriety which is good for me.

With any luck we will get you there.

Myles go to this link and simply ask to join the e-mail group. https://oso-aa.org/mailman/listinfo/tggroup_oso-aa.org Once you have joined write a note to Stuart about joining in with Skype. Sorry i wasn't correct on the link in an earlier post. i fixed that one as well.

Hope you will join us.

Hugs,

Our real time face to face on line trans* groups have gotten bigger than Skype can handle so we are using a different program to get together as we did before. The link above will bring you to us if your interested. You can be up with a live picture or not and like any meeting you can share or not depending on how you feel.

This group has expanded to have a Monday Zoom literature meeting at 7 eastern as well as the 6 pm Sat BB meeting and the Thursday 9 pm topic discussion meeting.

Hope to see you and hear you there or if you wish you can simply monitor without sharing or being visible.

The online f2f on the internet trans* meeting has outgrown Skype.  We are now meeting on Zoom.  We have also added a new literature meeting on Mondays at 7 eastern.  During the week there is a forum like meeting on line as well.  This is a wonderful opportunity to join an AA meeting if you are isolated or unable for whatever reason to attend in person meetings.  We have both audio and video of each member of the group but if your shy you can also simply be a fly on the wall.  Many of us feel that way at first.  Laughter and happiness can be part of life as well as the serious problem of finding relief from our addiction.

The link to get started if you are interested is:  6 posts above this one.

 

Hugs,

If you think you might have a problem with alcohol you may well find these meetings helpful.  The list serve goes out to over a hundred trans* alcoholics.  Our Zoom meetings  have up to a dozen folks in real time, able to speak and see each other if they wish.  We have everyone in the spectrum represented with one purpose.  To help each other with sobriety.

 

Hugs,

The TGAA Zoom meetings are expanding to add a 4th meeting taking place on Sundays at 8 eastern.  Join us if you have a problem with alcohol or other substances either at the list serve or the Zoom meeting.  You  are not alone in having issues with substances as you are not alone in being Trans*.   I found that i could find sobriety with help and in doing so i found acceptance of myself as well.  Please know there is a way to be sober and enjoy life as well!

 

Hugs,

I have just finished rewriting the text of the TGAA groups listing on the AA's website and thought it might be of interest here.  I've certainly been enjoying the meetings with trans diverse addicts from around the world.  If you think you may have an issue come join in.

 

TG-AA is a group of transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  We use an email forum with a weekly topic as well as having Zoom meetings 4 days a week for transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  
Meetings are as follows:   9:00 pm Thursday, topic discussion;  6:00 pm Saturday, Big Book study;  8:00 pm Sunday, speaker;  and 7:00 pm, Monday,  literature study. All Eastern Standard Time.   
We share our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking
To join us please contact us at:   https://oso-aa.orgmailman/listinfo/tggrouposo-aa.org

Hope to see you there soon Robin!  You won't be our only member from Australia.  Hopefully you will ask Ravin for our Zoom info.  

I saw your welcome e mail at the list serve.  Just email Ravin at the address he posted at the bottom of that email if you wish to come to the Zoom meetings. 

 

Hugs,

Thank you Charlize.

They went to my spam folder so I missed this weeks.

I will have everything sorted for next week including time zones.

      This sort of statement is true about everything related to my transition. 
    • Ivy
      Well, well well… I never knew.  They're still fun to bust - just not as much.

      I normally keep my headphones level set at 16.  At that level, I don't hear the bulbs breaking.  When I cranked the level up to 90, I heard them.

      I had the connection thing with girls/women as far as I recall which is about 5. Lot's of things I didn't notice because of life events. It is all mostly spelled out in three sequential blog posts, you can start here if your interested - https://stephiegurl.home.blog/2021/07/26/trying-to-look-back-through-the-gender-fog-part-1/.   Good luck.

      @awkward-yet-sweet. Yes, you're correct about transmission wires, they are mostly aluminum; particularly residential service mains (ie: from the power pole to the house). The vandalism was directed at the transformers, though. Electricity is transmitted at about 50000 volts A/C if I recall correctly. Residential power is delivered at 220 volts A/C. The transformers' function is to "step down," or reduce the voltage, the service main wires' function is to deliver the stepped down power. The internal wiring of the transformers can be either copper or aluminum. Copper is more common in transformers because it's more efficient as a conductor.

      Welcome Miss Robin,   I'm sure you will find that there are a lot of people here who have the same feelings, and experiences as you. I too, AMAB always thought I should have been a girl, and now a woman. I however took the male over compensation route, doing everything I could to prove to myself, and others that I was a Man. Well I'm done with that, and now I'm transitioning to be the woman I know myself to be. There will be others chiming in to welcome you. Look around, jump in on some conversations, you're among like people here at TransPuluseForums. This is a family friendly site.   Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Good afternoon everyone,    Here’s a video of my breaking of the lights. I found that I only have sound when I’ve clicked on the page first.  IMG_9073.MOV

      Hi im a 27 year old male or at least thats what they decided to brand me as at birth.   But im not sure about that , i have always for as long as i can remember been very different from other boys . When i was little I always wanted to play with the girls , we played with dolls and dressed up as princesses. When i got older i always had a easier time connecting with girls and spending time with them was much better then hanging out with boys my age.    This continues to this day and i have started thinking that i might feel more connected with them because I somewhere inside always wanted to be a girl. When i was younger i always dreamed at night about turning into a girl and i never missed a chance to have makeup or dress up in my moms clothes.    a few years ago i came out as Bi and i have found that I prefer to be the bottom with men that would pass as straight cis men.   I haven’t thought about this for several years but recently I broke up with my ex and since then i have started to explore with wearing womens clothes again. I bought myself a pair of high rise jeans and panties , i even bought myself a bra .  I also had a girlfriend put makeup on me.   And it just feels right , i feel comfortable in the clothes and i feel complete.   I know you people aren’t therapists but i want to see if somebody have the same experience or can relate.

      Good afternoon Stella, (only guessing)   I didn't comment on your September posting, and I love all the responses you received. My original coming out to my wife was much like yours, and the folks here were great help. I'm glad you are working through the issues that come with being in a relationship, and transgender. Suzie and I are two years into my coming out and slow transition. We have more open and honest conversations, even inside jokes now that she knows.   Happy Holidays to you and yours,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Wowie! Well...a bunch of the 80 somethings I've known had great hearing (don't even think of getting away with gossip if they were anywhere near 😷)  
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      😂 Here I was wondering if I was the only one who did that... its like I have a compulsion to do it every time the page refreshes.    I'm going to trot off now, chew on the furniture, shriek a bit, and maybe knock something off a shelf.  I don't belong in the house.

      @Petra Jane old or not, it certainly has a following.  I must admit I never heard it before the recording provided by @Colleen Henderson so thank you for that, Colleen.  I always use my iPad and it apparently doesn’t always behave itself.   Willow

      Hello,   Not to "bump" an old thread, but as I navigate what my support system looks like I've largely drifted away from the internet and as a result, have been largely absent from this site. However it's been on my mind lately that I spent a lot of time before starting my transition surfing threads here and seeing what other's experiences were, and that it might be helpful for someone else to see where mine is at.   My wife and I attend couple's counseling almost every week. We mostly discuss plans and feelings about how we can navigate this together, moving forward, whatever that may look like. There are days where I am sad, where I can sense her hesitation, where I can feel her thinking "I'm not sure how I feel." There are days where we feel more connected than ever before.   For once in a long while I feel like there are ups and downs - not a steady dragging through the mud. I am experiencing what it is like to live without major depressive disorder and largely without guilt and shame controlling my every thought and action. Starting my transition didn't solve everything. It gave me the power to stand against adversity with a self-worth I never knew before. And this is just the beginning of my journey.   I can't know what will happen for anyone reading this and wondering themselves, but I do know that I had little to no hope that anything positive would happen when I spoke the words "I am transgender" to my wife. But many positive things did. Every conversation I thought would devastate me has been un-catastrophic. And the happiness I feel in the most mundane of moments is far greater than I could have ever imagined.   This is just one woman's story, and yours might be different. Just know that for one random lady on the internet who was sure things would only get worse, things got better.   Thank you all for the words of encouragement when I needed them the most. I wish you all the best through the difficult holiday season. ❤️
