Happy being yourself is the best.  I still love to travel and look back to the excitement when it was an opportunity to express myself as well as wonderful times of change and life.

Enjoy yourself but if the credit card is under pressure take a look at  thrift shops.  Like anything else they can be googled and my wardrobe would be much less fun and diverse without the gently used fashions i found at a huge discount.  Most of all be careful and have fun.

 

Hugs,

Thank you Charlize. I'll certainly check them out. Yes I totally agree with you in being careful. My profile photo is from my last trip. First time I've worn lip stick in years. Hugs. Amber

Thanks Tracy. I plan on doing some more shopping. Possibly go to a club in the area that's CD friendly. Hugs. Amber

      That's good to know! 😊     I'm kind of terrified of starting when I'm older, so that has been a good motivator for me lol. It's been kind of a game of trying to which fear outweighs my other fears the most, and "spending most of my life as someone I don't want to be" is kind of like, one of my bigger fears lol.     Thanks for the encouragement; I figure I'll quit all substance abuse on my birthday tomorrow; probably early morning; maybe 4:24 AM Mountain Standard Time, because I have a habit of getting baked at 4:20 lol, and because I want the digits of my Quit Date to add up to a number than can be reduced to eight by adding the two digits of the sum together because 8 is my Birth Number and I'm quirky like that lmao. 🤪 PS: Omg I love your name! My sister's first and middle name is Audra Jean. "Jean" as a middle name is a family tradition for me lol; mom's "Kathy Jean", my niece is "Nina Jean", my grandma was "Betsy Jean" and so on and so forth. I decided to take my grandmother's maiden name as my surname instead of my birth surname, because my whole family is kinda like...cursed lmao. I don't want my name to have anything to do with my father or grandfather lol. Both of them were monsters. 😕

      I've been getting my nails done for a while now. When I started it was plan Jane, and as time moved on. I went from nude color, with square tips. To nude with a oval tip. Then more of a nude pink. Well this time I went super bright pink. I don't know why I did, but I did.   I got a complement from a store clerk. Which didn't surprise me. As they scream look at me, but I was presenting as a male. So it kinda made me feel uncomfortable, but it did open pandoras box, and im already decideding on doing a blue/purple or a red/black ombre in a few weeks.

      This is wonderful to hear, and I hope you'll successfully get reimbursed. Kaiser seems to be one of the most progressive insurance companies when it comes to transgender healthcare. What I have through my employer is more than happy to deem as many things as possible "cosmetic" so as not to pay for anything. I would also gladly pay that price out of pocket. In NYC, electrolysis averages about double that amount. But then, *everything* is expensive here.   I also agree with @Jani, starting hair removal early on in transition is very important, and if you vet your providers carefully, it's quite safe. Electrology is generally a licensed profession so as long as you work with a provider who's licensed to practice in your state, you should be fine. As for laser hair removal, I believe that varies considerably from state to state, so you'll want to check what the requirements are in your state. Also, a good hair removal technician in either modality will be happy to answer any questions you have about the process before getting started, as well as during or after your treatments.   Love, ~Audrey.

      @NoCityGurlWelcome to the group!! It's great to have you here and to hear your story!! ❤️

      I have redish brown hair, and I can tell laser has at least worked for me after one treatment. I last shaved some time in the past week, maybe last weekend. Its definitely not as dense, there is a few balder spots, and when I do shave. I'm smoother longer. It probably helps. That I couldn't grow a beard to save my life.

      Hi @Zooeyand welcome to the group!! Boy, when I started reading your first paragraph I wondered if someone had copied and pasted mine here. I can really identify with a lot of what you shared. I hope you feel at home here. This is a great place with a lot of awesome people. Thanks for joining us! ❤️

      That's not cheap. I hope you get reimbursed.   On a similar subject, has anyone had any success at reversing a bald head? i really don't want to have to wear a wig the rest of my life. I'm trying to let my hair grow out, but the top is pretty sparse.

      Hi, Fynn! Welcome.   Unless your doctor says otherwise, a low libido is not dangerous. You don't have to worry about it. On the other hand, you could, potentially, be anxious enough that you're artificially lowering your libido. That would be okay, too.   Also, you may be asexual. if you are, that's fine, too. And it doesn't mean you're not trans. Gender and orientation aren't the same thing. You could be ace trans masc, or you could be unlabeled right now and for as long as it takes you to explore your feelings, until you wish to apply a label.   Labels are shorthand, but they're often not helpful at all. For instance, the only people whose business it really is what your orientation might be, is dating partners. And if you say "I'm asexual" it could mean a lot of different things to different people. It's so much easier in the long run to explain everything from where you're at. "I believe I might be asexual but then again I've only been on T for six months and I'm still figuring this out." So much more informative. Labels take less time to use, but if the information is important to share with someone, then it can be shared in detail.

      I’d like to add that Kaiser Permanente, at least in Colorado, covers the cost of hair removal after you’ve been on HRT for 6 months. I’m paying out of pocket for Thermolysis but keeping my receipts in the hope I’ll be reimbursed in 6 months. $90 per hour here. It’s a commitment since you have to stay with it for some time. On the bright side I no longer have a needle phobia!

      Hi Tomi, Welcome to our humble forum. The “life is short” idiom is the reason I moved forward with my transition too. I was 56 and realized if I was ever going to do it...now is the time. I think it’s never too late to try to better yourself. You seem to know exactly what you want. Thanks for sharing some of your story with us. I look forward to reading more as you feel the need.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Hi Tomi, it's nice to meet you and welcome to the forums. I wholeheartedly agree, this is a warm and wonderful place full of many lovely people with diverse experiences and perspectives. I feel very at home here since I joined right around Thanksgiving. I'm happy to hear that you're in a better place especially after your battle with cancer, and it's wonderful you have a doctor who's supportive of your goals with HRT. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.   Love, ~Audrey.
