Hey Bobbie! If you look to the right of the page and scroll all the way down, you'll see when our next substance abuse meeting is! Hint: August 30th at 9pm.

Hi Jackie

Yes, yes, yes, I wanna' come to that meeting. Great to know Bill's been here, too. My problem is, I don't know how to log into Discord. It's too discordant to me. I guess at some point, I "registered"[?] my email, so now it won't let me set up a new account, but I don't see anywhere to log into an existing account.

I think I mentioned, I'm 76 The buttons I learned to push were dark red on a Royal secretary model that weighed about 100 #, with paper which instantly disappeared under any sort of eraser. My tech education hasn't advanced much beyond that point. So, my sweet Sister, could you guide me through the maze, or am I lost so far in the swamp that I'll vote for .... [bleep, bleep, censored for peace].

Sweetie, I'm 50 but sure, easy enough.


Step #1: Launch the Discord app on your computer. If you don't have the app, download and install it. The web-based version of Discord is... not great...


Step #2: In the left-hand pane, click on the Transpulse channel. It looks like North America backed by the transgender flag.


Step #3: Substance abuse meetings are in the #Meeting-Room. @Charlize and @VickySGV are the moderators.

We are discussing two meetings here.

   The Trans Pulse meeting takes place in chat in the meeting room.  Any with a substance abuse problem are welcome to join us there.  Jackie has given good advice above to get to that meeting.  There is more on that meeting on a separate thread.

    TGAA takes place on a Zoom platform as well as using a list serve(email chat).  To access that group use this link:


Just fill out your email and the name you wish to use.  Hit the submit button and sit back. At this point you need to ask Ravin to join the Zoom meetings.  You can do that on the list serve.

  You must join the list serve prior to joining in at Zoom.  We do that as an added layer of security to protect our members whose anonymity is often very important to them.

Last night's Thursday TGAA meeting was wonderful.  It struck me that in the group of 30 trans* folks we had many attending who were finding sobriety in the midst of the covid epidemic.  We had day counts of sobriety ranging from 8 days to 95 days along with those with over 40 years.  For years i heard folks in real time AA meetings saying that AA couldn't work on line.  In fact it does.  For the trans community simply finding a place where others understood my addiction as well as my gender issues is magical.  I have often heard that is is beautiful to see a person grow in sobriety.  Seeing them embrace themselves as well brings additional joy.  I feel the same seeing the beautiful people here at Trans Pulse.

If you have an issue with substance addiction please join us.

Yes, Ma'am, it is wonderful. I think the tgAA meeting is one of the best groups I've ever attended. Literally international, "local" members from all over the US, ages from 18 to ... um ... me and maybe a few others, different takes on their Programs. I'm lovin' it, and I'm sitting here dressed for goin' online in company, j ust killin' time waiting for the 3pm PST/6pm where it's already getting dark. See ya' soon, I hope. 

~~Hugs comin' right back at'cha, from Lee~~

Unfortunately i need to post that this wonderful person, Lee H has died.  We who got to know her and saw her lead meetings with wisdom and love miss her deeply.

We miss Lee as we miss all our brothers and sisters who have passed. Lee's no nonsense take on AA was so enlightening and fresh, I miss her.


For me Lee will be looking down upon us and will help us find strength when we are feeling we don't have the strength ourselves.

      Good afternoon and Welcome Ay-la. As you've seen by the responses above, you're in a safe place to be who you really are.   Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      You have all prompted me to do some research. Being of Scottish descent, I went in that direction and learned a bunch of things, some of the most unusual were:   On Christmas eve, the children leave a slice of mince pie and a shot of whisky for Father Christmas.   A rowan twig is often burnt on Christmas to restore good relationships between neighbors, family members and friends.   And, most unusual of all, Christmas wasn't celebrated openly by Scots from 1647 until the 1950s. Originally, this was because of edicts under Cromwell's rule and later the Presbyterian Church of Scotland discouraged the practice of celebrating Christmas.

      With respect to the second sentence, my mother treated me and my three siblings - especially me - rather poorly. None of us kept up with her much in adulthood. I moved away from her and my siblings at 13 to live with our dad. 'Tis why I avoided having children until I was 50, when I was "certain" I wouldn't be like her.   She did, however, if even accidentally, I still in me a love of different types of music.

      Krampus is another different tradition. I first learned about the character on an episode of General Hospital several years ago.

      @miz mirandathank you for adding to the Christmas Traditions list. Again, it's very interesting. As is the story of the actual Saint Nicholas, bishop of Myrna and Bari, the precursor of Santa. I've gotta say, I think I'll pass on the fried caterpillars though.

      LOL.  When I was a kid, there was an even worse variation of it, to the same tune, called "All I want for Christmas is a Beatle."  Click at your own risk... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ozoaBftyjI

      In German traditions, St. Nicholas is accompanied by a an imp or mildly evil fellow named Krampus.  St. Nicholas hands out sweet treats and fruit to good children, leaving the treats in a shoe.  Krampus beats bad children with a stick.

      SZA's new album, SOS, finally out. " Blind" song. Been a long-time fan since her first demos.

      This was popular when I was a kid.  It sucked then, and it sucks now:  "All I want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth."  Spike Jones and the City Slickers did the first recording of it.     Carolyn Marie

      That Yule Cat in Iceland!  I love it!

      some strange Christmas Traditions   Italy: The Christmas Witch In many cultures, Santa Claus is the person that travels around the world and delivers gifts to deserving young boys and girls on Christmas Eve. Kids are told to be good because Santa is watching them and will know if they behave! On Christmas morning, good kids are rewarded with gifts from this iconic figure. But in Italy, there's someone else delivering gifts. Befana is the name of a witch in Italy who is said to travel around Italy on Epiphany Eve (January 5th) to deliver gifts to children all over the country. If the children were good all year, their socks are filled with candy and gifts. But if they were bad? They get nothing but coal.   Iceland: The Yule Cat Animals are a big part of a lot of the mythology and traditions of many countries. In Iceland, there's a special Christmas tradition that involves a very special cat that roams the streets one time per year. But this cat isn't the cute, friendly, four-legged friend that we might imagine roaming the streets of Iceland. According to myths and legends, the Yule Cat is a ferocious creature that wanders around during the winter time and eats anyone who hasn't gotten new clothes to wear on Christmas Eve.   Japan: Kentucky Fried Christmas Many families have a tradition of getting together on holidays like Christmas to enjoy a meal together. Whether it's turkey, ham, or a secret family recipe, enjoying dinner together is a huge part of the holidays for many families. This is also true in Japan! Even though Christmas is celebrated a lot differently and has only started to be celebrated in the past few decades, it's still popular for a lot of people. So, what's the special meal that people eat during Christmas in Japan? KFC! In the 1970s, KFC in Japan started advertising a special campaign during the winter called Kentucky for Christmas. During Christmas, KFC sells a special range of family dinners meant to help people celebrate the holiday together.   South Africa: Fried Caterpillars There are some foods around the world that are slightly strange to people that don't live there. Some of them are surprisingly delicious once you give them a chance, but then there are others that we could never imagine trying. In South Africa, there's one really unusual food that tends to be eaten during the Christmas season. It's fried, crispy, and they say it's delicious. What is it? Fried caterpillars! On Christmas Day, people in South Africa snack on deep-fried caterpillars.

      I think this is true.  But I don't think that our core beliefs can't evolve as we grow in knowledge and understanding.  For myself, I had a core "belief" that I used as a lens to interpret my experiences and everything else.  There were times when it took a bit of mental gymnastics to pull it off - which bothered me.   When I was finally forced to drop that, it opened me to be able to interpret my realities in a new way that made a whole lot more sense.   Sure, I'm still looking at things through a lens.  But at least it's my own lens, and that lens can be modified as I grow and learn even more.   This doesn't mean that there is no such thing as "truth" or reality, it's just that we are seeing more of it, and hopefully that, more accurately.   I don't know.  Perhaps there is a time when our reality has to crumble and be rebuilt on a different foundation.  And perhaps it's not a one-time thing.
