Not So Happy Pride For Me But One Beautiful Part.


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

On the way to my truck last night after Los Angeles Trans Pride I tripped on the sidewalk on the way to my truck and skinned my arm up pretty bad, and just to finish the job up, broke my left wrist which was discovered when I went to the Kaiser ER on my way home and they saw the swelling in it. My left arm is in a splint from palm to elbow, and a sleeve of gauze over the skinned arm part from elbow to arm pit.  On the good end though, I was treated wonderfully in the ER even with my chart showing I am  post-op Trans.

 

Better yet, my chorus was in the closing show of the event and pulled off a beautifully touching number with a 9 year old Trans Girl from one of the LGBT centers youth programs where the little girl read a piece about her life, and the Chorus came on stage and serenaded her with You Have More Friends Than You Know.  

 

I may not be doing much here for a bit, it is hard for me to type with on had

Oh, Vicky! No bueno. ?

I'm glad to hear that Kaiser treated you well. The chorus event with the little girl sounds beautiful. Were you able to participate?

I was not on stage, but there were several of us in the audience that stood up in our seat area and sang the second & 3 rd verses with thr chorus from there.  My accident was 3/4 of an hour later.  I had been at the event for 12 hours by then.

I am so sorry for your injuries :(

But the rest of that story is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. I love reading about things that rekindles my faith in humanity.

Make sure to get lots of rest, that's the fastest way to heal!!!

I'm sorry to read that you managed to get hurt Vicky.  We are getting a bit older and need to be more careful at this point of our lives.  I'm glad at least it was your left arm.  Oops hopefully your not a lefty.  

 

Hugs,

I am so sorry to hear this.  I fell and broke my wrist a few years ago and it was not nice.  I hope you heal well and good.  

 

Congratulations on the successful chorus event.  I know you are proud of that!

So sorry to hear about your accident, hon.  At our age, bones are pretty brittle.  i hope you have something for the pain, and that you'll heal quickly.  Congrats to you and the Chorus for another lovely show.

 

HUGS

I had had a blood test last Monday, and they had tested for vitamin D and calcium, and mine were normal for a person a bit younger, so I have been keeping my bones in pretty good shape, and luckily the pain has only been single Tylenol level.

Update--  I was going to change the dressing on my upper arm today and found the area has no open sores or bleeding, andthe bandage I had taken off was almost completely clean.  I think it is where I can by with a one of my 3/4 sleeve tops on, or one of my notoriously baggy T shirts.  (To hide the small remaining yuck factor).

 

Cast comes off in 12 days.  Counting down with happiness!

Glad to hear your healing well Vicky.  As we get (just a bit) older healing can be more difficult.

 

Hugs,

      Still don't drink coffee. My normal suppliers of caffeine, C-C & MD, are not presently at hand, but my vitamin water is. Had a couple of emotional pick-me-ups today (in addition to those I got here), and they were much needed on an in-person level. First, I went to return an item at Kohl's (only in person returns), which worked out nicely. The nice lady at the return counter was teaching another nice lady the ins and outs of the process. Thrice, she unhesitatingly referred to me as "she."    Secondly, as I was on my walk, I ended up passing three women, two maybe 30ish or so, the other a teen. We greeted as I passed, then one of them said something about legs. Then the other adult one said, "She's got legs." The word "legs" drawn out for emphasis. Yeah, that perked me up!

      You are beautiful and I agree men can be really insensitive pigs!

      Thanks. My hair lady, and a former boss also said the same thing about the top. As for him saying he's sorry. He's a manly man. I know im never going to get a sorry from him. Even I knew as a man. If I said some thing stupid to woman in my past life. Hey everyone dose. I would say im sorry. As for saying I'm ugly. I can take being called ugly. I'm not that sensitive, but when I'm being compared to two men doing drag. That is what pissed me off.  Yep. I worked with a lot of men in my life. There has been many times. That they have said stupid stuff, and I have said how are you married.  Can be?  He really not a bad looking man. Again not my type. He dose treat woman with respect for the most part. I'll give him that. Like you said. He just says stupid things a lot. I also know he dosn't care about gay/trans stuff. I've know him well enough to know he could care less about a person's sexual or gender choices. He hasn't even known about my transition for a year yet, and we really don't talk about. As we don't see eachother in person. Because he's a trucker. I think if he saw me in person. It might be a lot different l. I still have male friends because I need a bit of testerone in my life. As munch as my female friends have tried to be into my interests. They just aren't into cars, or other male interest. Plus if a male friend want to hang out. It means a i can wear sweats, a over sized t shirt, and no make-up. Hanging out with the girls means going out in public. A hour of prep time, etc.

      Yes, thank you. Sorry, should have said that originally.

      Check your local LGBTQ+ center. I gave mine to a friend who donated them to the community where they live. They were much too nice to throw out.   Hugs!

      I’ve been wearing a bra with false breasts for almost a year, but i too have started to feel uncomfortable due to my breast growth. Yay!   So i’ve switched to some bra pads instead. It doesn’t feel as heavy or “natural”, but the lack of pressure is a definite plus.   Now I just need to find an organization to donate my old breasts to. Anyone know one? 😀   mara

      @JaycieI was in the Boston area for about 10 years with my previous (#3) wife. My job for 37 years was overwhelmingly male dominated. During those 10 years, my best friend was a woman. She came out to Chicago a few years after I left Boston to be the "Best Man" at my (most recent) wedding. Years ago by, and we exchange Christmas cards and occasional birthday cards. Sadly, I haven't told her that I'm getting divorced and transitioning. Lack of courage. Soon. Same for the friend who cut me off 5 years ago - maybe.    Funny, it only occurred to me as I wrote about the past regarding my chosen middle name. Renee means reborn, and that was my conscious reason for adopting it. I realized that, subliminally, it was because of Renee Richards.   @MmindyAgain, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you. Hugs to all at TGP.❤️

      Hmnn, worth a shot I mean using that angle [thank you] but issue with him is its his way and his way only, there is no compromising. I will try your way next time the topic comes up and will report back.

      I hope it feels really good to know that your wife supports you as she does. That she sees you as more than a collection of body parts and as a person who desires to be more themselves.

      You look amazing 💖

      At least maybe you can get the typewriter fixed properly now. Found one somebody was getting rid of and regret not picking it up.😔Oh well.
