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~~

      Hi! I'm a questioning afab (It's ok, you can refer to me as a woman or just a person) and I have a large chest, E/F cup. I am searching for a rather cheap and comfortable binder, are the gc2b classical ones good? Do any of you have other recommendations? Thank you in advance.

      I've had many favorites over the years.  My first was Ultima IV, which managed to pack a surprisingly vibrant (and large) world onto my 128k Apple IIc.  Star Control II was the next game to really capture my attention.  Both games managed to convey a story of surpising depth for a video game.   I had a brief affair with Total Annihilation. 4x games aren't usually my thing, but TA had a mod community that kept the game fresh for a few years.  As long as I played against the computer, my weak strategy wasn't a handicap.   Minecraft is my number one game, and is likely to stay that way, given how long it has held the top slot.  I loved Lego when I was a wee child, and Minecraft scratches that itch in a big way.  My daughter is always telling me that the things I build in survival mode are better than what she sees others making in creative mode.

      When I was a teenager, I was fortunate to have my sister backing me up.  There's less than a year of age difference between us, and we went to school together and played on teams together.  We also look very much alike and had the same style.  It helps to not be alone.   I wear boxers most of the time.  Actually, around the house, that's about all I wear.  I really dislike clothing of any kind in warm weather, so about the only thing my partners can get me to wear is shorts and a t-shirt.  One layer, nothing underneath.  I can be pretty stubborn about things like that.   A lot of the time, I wear basketball shorts.  Silky texture, good at sweat wicking.  If I have to wear a shirt, I often use ones that have the arms cut out.  Anything to stay cool in summer.  Bonus is that it is androgynous looking or even masculine.

      Hello & welcome @Beginsat43 . Nice to make your virtual acquaintance. I relate to several things you shared. Due to intellectual incompatibility, I also found making friends difficult during the early part of my life. To compound the issue, I was raised in a deeply fearful Irish Catholic family - my mother was afraid of everything and indoctrinated me into that legacy of fear. It took concerted effort on my part to learn the art of friendliness and how to relate to others to realize intimacy on levels other than that of the intellectual. One practical part of this process, which is rather amusing, is that I had to adjust my conversational lexicon because I had spent much more time reading (I also did not own a TV until about 2012) than talking to people that I rendered myself "conversant", but unrelatable - I'd speak words that most folks do not know. (Sometimes I'd get asked in a mocking way, "what are you, a librarian?") To say it's been worth the effort to learn better how to relate is an understatement. I am blessed with many wonderful, beloved and loving friends in my life. Related to that, my study of Eastern religions has taught me in part that the intellect is but a tool and not my identity. This knowledge has deepened my understanding of how my existence is an aspect of a unified oneness, and that truly there is nothing to fear. Also, like you, I began to self-medicate at age 19. And, as I gain insight into my asexuality and gender identity, I realize that, similar to what you describe, my attraction to men has been very much steeped in envy. I am gratified to hear you are feeling positive and eager to realize your genuine identity. It is indeed exhilarating to let go of restraints which have bound us for so long. In many ways, it's like starting a new life. Cheers to you.

      I'd also add, that a friend of mine does trans yoga through her trans affirming enterprise "My Feminine Heart." She's a sweetheart and I'd be remiss if I didn't point you her way.   Hugs!
