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 know this is sorta random and I'm not sure If I've acquainted myself here but, I'm Taylor and I'm a teen who's looking for other teens to hang out with. I don't really have any supporting friends or friends who also identify under the Transgender umbrella. And with this topic I was hoping to succeed in finding some people who may be interested in becoming friends. Y'know someone I could just message regularly and talk to about anything. 😄 If anyone's shy that's fine because I am too, I'm also a bit awkward so if someone's not SUPER awkward like I am I'd like to get to hang out 🙂 just message me and we'll see how it goes from there. Thanks!

      Looking great Liz! The high neckline works for you and it's always great to see you smile in your pics

      @AmberM I agree that I do go through cycles but with HRT and my GI therapist - the cycles aren't as extreme nor last as long and I am thankful for that AND because I am getting at the root cause of my depression and anxiety, those pains are less severe.   Getting the right therapist is a godsend.

      Today, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signed House Bill 1503 into law — legislation that allows student groups at colleges, universities, and high schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students.   https://www.hrc.org/press-releases/north-dakota-gov-doug-burgum-signs-anti-lgbtq-house-bill-1503-into-laww

      I have found therapy to be useful over the years, however, there was always this one thing that kept coming back that I didn't know how to deal with. After finally getting after my gender identity, I have noticed a lift in my mood, and improvement in several symptoms. What is hard though, is this time of year, normally my mood naturally increases. So we have to wait until October time frame to see if it dips down super low again. It isn't that I don't get dips week to week, because I still get some dips, just they haven't been as low as they were in the past. I think therapy has been pivotal to my success and will remain to be key to my continued success.

      Nothing special today.  Black high-neck tank and jeans. The neckline is more conservative then I usually wear but I really like the look and feel.    Also added finishing powder to my makeup routine. Not that I need it for work but practice makes perfect.

      Ok, thanks so much I'll be sure to check it out!

      Jandi, This is my life in a nut shell. I'm several years behind you, but this is exactly how I have come to see myself. @Jani is correct in pointing out that most of us are not girls, but women, and in my case an older woman. My Suzie is still coming around slowly to the fact that I'm transgender and we can openly talk about how this affects our relationship, and our different feelings. This June 26th, we will be married for 45 years, now she understands that my many girl friends, were just that GIRL friends. Nothing More. I'm not looking to be with anyone but my Suzie, and have to always remind her of that. It's human nature to want to be desired, in my opinion. Relationships die or fail when the people in them stop pursuing each other. It's the hunt, not the kill. It's about the fishing not just the landing of a trophy mount. My joy in gardening is the gardening, not just the harvest or cut flowers.   Good morning everyone, the coffee was HOT, black, strong, and never bitter.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Retirement opened the door for me. I'd told myself I needed to free myself but the fear of more abandonment and rejection and as has been said in the most recent postings - I looked to please and comfort others and deny myself. It's getting easier but the road to recovery is long and grueling.

      I've seen probably 5 therapist over the years and they treated me for depression and anxiety, anorexia and panic attacks but my symptoms always came back. My current Therapist was the first Gender Identity Specialist I've seen and the effects have been so refreshing and helpful. I notice the waiting lists for GI specialists and the lack of coverage and lack of available therapists, specially when you get out of major cities. Zoom helps but in person meeting so much more beneficial.   How about you? Have you found a therapist that has helped you become YOU?

      I had always been a diplomat, trying to get the people around me to get along - damage control.  And I was willing to compromise myself to preserve the peace.  I think I had gotten to a place where I was no longer living, but only reacting. I wonder if I would have ever felt free to look at my own issues if I had stayed in that relationship.  It was only when it collapsed that I felt free to explore my own neglected identity.  I had been living for other people for years.   This said, I do think we have to consider those around us.  But we can't let them, or our fear of offending them control us.

      YOU would have to decide that during sessions with your Gender Therapist.  For some individual, it could be, for another Enby person it may just be a normal feeling of growing up that comes on and disappears as a feeling in a few months or less.  ALL teenagers Cis/Trans/Enby go through periods where their bodies do not look right and give them some form of distress, but if it is actual GD is up to each one and their therapy team to explore, and as I said it is an individual realization.  Also it will not be a single body part likely to do it.  I am in my 70's and my two Cis teenagers are "deathly stressed" about whether their bodies look right, along with their AMAB sister and her stress is not related to her gender.
