May the poor girl rest in peace. I had a 97 with low miles also. It sat in a garage for 3 years.  Gave it to my stepdaughter, She's still driving it.

Sorry girls, I still love cars.

Hey there @Bobbie Scott,

 

I've said this to @jae bear on several occasions. Girls can be MOTOR HEADS, Race Team Leaders, and even Girly Girls can be Motor Heads.

 

Have you hugged an engine today?

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Liquid motivation came in cold form today. (Mt Dew) a little nervous today because I’m heading with the family down to Illinois to surprise both of the boys grandpas for their birthday. This will be the first time I’ve fully presented to any family.

@KymmieL Sorry to hear about your wheels. Hopefully the salvage is good.

 

@JustineM Good luck, hope it goes well.

 

Got my hair done last week, first time with a traditionally fem style. Went with a chin length bob, that really works with my natural curls. What an awesome and amazingly affirming experience it was. My stylist was so chill and she took great of me. Can't wait until my next appointment already.

 

For me, work has no updated my contact details in all systems except payroll. My name change is off to the government. Probably a little more than a month before I hear back and can get my new birth certificate and name change form and complete the updates at work. With my contact details changed in most systems, word is starting to spread around a little faster. Still nothing but support from those who have reached out and those I have interacted with.

Trying to book an appointment for tomorrow to get my ear lobes pierced. Did some online retail therapy earlier in the week, now waiting for the first installments to my fall wardrobe to arrive.

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful day, stay safe! Hugs!

Is it weird that I pictured that as a Scooby-Doo style reveal? You rip the rubber mask off and, "Ah ha! It was Justine all along and she would have gotten away with it too if not for you meddling kids!"

 

Either way, best of luck. May you find only acceptance and love!

 

Hugs!

Yes, I used to race against some fierce women, many of whom knew their cars inside out.

wow, I knew my rabbit ears were burning! Yes indeed, I know plenty of women, both CIS gender and trans that love cars, motorcycles, mechanical things in general and are just gearheads galore! Nothing like the site of a Chrysler 400 in.³ block on your engine  stand stuffed with a forged 440 crank turned down to fit the mains with flat top Keith black pistons decked .005” below the top ready to stuff into your 1969 Dodge Charger... that’s 451 in.³ for all those boys out there who didn’t  know how to do the math! I love baffling them with that combo as they’ve never quite heard of it before...  But I usually get a marriage proposal right after baffling them!

@jae bear @Jani what what what.... Jae Bear plays guitar. Jani you should have said something. She needs to add some tracks to our stuff. GIRL POWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The funny thing is I used to love anything that was loud fast and had wheels or tracks. Now I can’t even stand them but, then doing it 7 days a week burns you out. Half of the time it’s not the piece of equipment it is the operator or the driver that I can’t stand especially when you hear that costs money and can you have it fixed in 5 minutes lol. Oh well such is life haha

Doing anything for a long time and we get subject to burn out.  Look at it this way, those bad operators provided work for you which you used to live and support yourself.

@KymmieL good luck!

 

thanks for the kind words. Actually big changes are under way for me. Interviewed for a new position in an ICU in Raleigh NC. They offered, so looks like end of November I’ll be moving. Now just to find people to pack 90% of my house!

Oh my goddess! This went so well! My biological family have all said I look so much happier. They even gave me a new real hair wig! Flying on cloud 9 3/4 right now.  Thank you ladies for all the kind words.

Why would you? Biker chicks... girl mechanics... just wow. Always been attracted to both groups.

 

If you look up "My Metal Family" on YouTube... watch the intro. I would have reacted exactly the same way.

Omergerd ... Jackie I love Mopar.

This made my morning thank you.

We didn't get any big block cars here so we had to make do with LAs, still a 318 done right makes 330hp 😉

I'm still wondering how or if my car friends will accept my changes.

Though I'm coming to the realisation that it shouldn't matter. I'll be me and that will be that.

Hugs

      suits. even tho they're quite formal, blazers and trousers make me feel like a man.  but also the baggy t-shirt/big jacket/straight jeans combo. they make me feel like any other boy my age, it makes me feel very happy.

      Edit: ...as MOST if not all human beings are lol.
    • Nora
      ...Buuut...crap. This might be one of those social situations where I just shouldn't say anything, but I'm a little drunk, so I'm gonna risk it LOL. Here goes it: The first thing that comes to mind, is...there is no free will. ...For anyone to decide to do anything at all is simply an illusion; a beautiful lie. The reality of the matter is that due to the laws of nature and the laws of physics, EVERYTHING is pre-determined; written in stone the moment gravity first got it's foothold in this most-likely-fake thing humans like to call the Universe. For me to think that I have any kind of say in anything at all just seems to be laughably absurd to me. ...We're all slaves to fatalistic destiny. No one is really responsible or to be blamed for anything in Universe. ...And that's pretty much the only way I've found for me to forgive people who hurt me and others...it's not their fault; they know not what they do lol. The second thing that came to mind is WAY less deep; it's simply that it occurred to me that perhaps a part of me doesn't really like the word "Dysphoria" because it sounds like a mental illness. I'm not sick. Nothing's wrong with me. I'm merely dissatisfied with various aspects of my body, as all human beings are. Thinking of myself as "dysphoric" just feels...WEIRD lol. XD
    • Nora
      Edit: ...and part of middle school before "the incident." Sorry; I zoned out and re-lived some crap for a sec. I'm fine LOL. XD
    • Nora
      Thanks for sharing! That makes a lot more sense; the social dysphoria you describe is something I've felt for literally decades, in the sense I never really got along with the boys and preferred playing house with the girls, especially when I got to be the baby LOL. 😆 Got bullied all throughout elementary school, and part of elementary school before "the incident" happened when I was twelve, and then I prefer to just fast forward five years later at the age of seventeen and just skip that violent-gorey-horror-movie section of my life that led to copious amounts of drug and alcohol abuse which continues to this day despite my nurse's wishes lol. Then the good old fashioned bullying from when I was kid resumed all throughout my five year long firefighting career starting at seventeen. It was nice; I actually enjoyed the hazing; it was WAY nicer than...the period of time we shall never speak of...at least not tonight. =P

      Indeed, I should not care what others think or say, but alas, I just can't help myself lol. I'm terrified of causing a scene. I live in a town fulla cowboys, mountain men and rednecks. ...What if one of them's a psychotic bigot? ...What if they go after my mother? ...What if I can't do anything to protect her? ...I'd probably end up becoming a serial killer who targets transphobes, collecting locks of their hair in a scrapbook as trophies; THAT'S WHAT! Rotflol. 🤣   ...And I just CAN'T let that happen lmao. XD ...I'll get out of the house more in a few years or so LOL. XD

      Thanks @stveee ! There are so many common threads in your story & mine. I kind of regret not thinking of feminizing my clothes, it would've given me a bigger wardrobe. ICurrrently: finally ready to face myself, sober, and will begin with a gender therapist who is transitioned. Questioning whether I desire or need to transition to female. I was right there nine months ago, so happy to have found this forum, & a wonderful gender therapist. I too feel more alive & someone is unfolding on this journey into my femme.   Hugs! Delcina

      That's no way to live. I have been this way and I am just getting to the point it doesn't really bother me to walk around the women's dept and look to see what treasure I can find to wear. I am in the building stage with my wardrobe and I know it will take me a long time to find just the right garment to buy and wear. I have been working on my transition actually for the last couple of years, but medically transitioning for the last year. I can say I am not as nervous today with wanting to step out as my authentic self. I want to do it more and sometimes it seems exciting and all I can do is smile. I don't care if I am presenting correctly. It is my differences that make me better see what to do next. I have a plan to go to the mall and sit, watch and learn what will make me better. Fear shouldn't become the factor for not presenting in public. You shouldn't care what others think and say.

      I want to feel cute but comfy, so it's either nightshirts/nightgowns lounging around the house, or an off the shoulder top or crop top really makes me feel girly.

      Hi, my name is Stevie. I started "crossdressing" in early teens, maybe before, by cutting up my clothing. My parents would find piles of them and who knows what they thought. But I just had to do it. Then when I was 16 was the first time I tried on my older sister's tops.    My father suggested I join the Army after high school. I did and would buy clothes for my girlfriends and end up wearing them. I would engage in intimacy but stopped short of sex. I felt like my genitalia was not connected to my mind and felt no pleasure through it.    While in the military I took to binge drinking and severe depression ensued. By the time of discharge, I was suicidal, had several attempts and detoxes. I was admitted into the VA hospital and the first two meds made me numb and psychosis developed. Then, I genuinely tried to take my own life. Finally, a few years later, put on disability and took prozac for around 12 years which helped a bit. I met my first transgender (older transitioned MtF) persons in the VA and basically brought up the idea: why can't I be somewhere in the middle gender? Answer I got was basically Honey, that's not how it works. So facing a transition to female, I think I was 28 at the time, seemed like what I had to do. Or at least, try to live as much female as possible. I ended up marrying because I was lonely and afraid I could not support myself, and she accepted my gender ID and crossdressing. But I was seeing no therapist, no hormones. Started electrolysis in this DIY attempt, and some kind of facial hormone cream which I didn't realize was all short-sighted. Early internet days, shoddy information, sketchy sites.  The marriage was a disaster as there was abuse, drugs, alcohol and our individual psychological issues. Finally was separated, on my own and basically just existing. Using substances to cope. Dead to the world. Continued to keep a wardrobe and just managing the "dual life".  Went through Vocational Rehab in a janitorial program to get back into work. Exterted myself and got the job I have today and making more than I ever did. A few years, tossed my wardrobe (again)...oh, except a few things of course, and thinking the dysphoria will just go away now that I am older. Nope.   Currrently: finally ready to face myself, sober, and will begin with a gender therapist who is transitioned. Questioning whether I desire or need to transition to female. Accumulating another wardrobe. Really regret tossing my shoes and I had some really cool things. I have the feeling of looking in the mirror and seeing a girl in there, buried under years of self-abuse. The fluidity is a bit precarious as the more I accept and go femme, the more alive I feel, like something is unfolding.  But I am still quite boyish and discovering what fits for me right now and the my physical limitations and working with them I guess as I am not just confined to the closet and want to be seen for who I am...which is a work in progress I suppose. There are still things about me that I very much like and don't want to change, and others which seem to cause conflict.  I get some comfort in realizing I do not necessarily have to be either one or the other gender right now, and it's more about how I feel about myself than passing or trying to live up to an ideal image. But sort of feel like a small minority as someone who has not gone through all the changes (yet?) of the transitioned, as I am still outing myself in small steps, in a small circle. I am naturally careful, but honest. I do not fear being hurt so much "out there", as I know from experience I am my own worst enemy and cause my own difficulties more than anyone could ever do.  Thank you for letting me share. I actually hope this has helped someone else who is lurking. After all, "Normal People" don't go years struggling with questioning their gender- we are all Trans here and in different chapters of the same story.  Love you All, S.

      Hey, everyone! I'm on low dose T now for about 7 months, I use Testogel and, except for a few more whiskers and other very little changes, there hasn't really happened anything yet. I don't wanna say I'm not happy with what has changed but I really wish for a little more, especially after that time. My dose is really low, now I want to take twice as much and hope to get closer to my goal during the next months. But there are two things I'm a little worried about so I thought maybe someone here could help me! About two or three months after I've started HRT, I noticed that I'm losing much more hair than before. It still looks totally okay but there IS a difference. Do you think I will lose even more when I increase the dose? I mean, if that's the case I will accept it. Before I started HRT I was waaay more worried about that. Now it's not that much of a problem for me anymore but it would still be nice to know what to expect. :'D And the second thing (which I'm more afraid of): I've read that transmen on Testosterone have to have their internal female parts removed (uterus and ovaries, as far as I know) because else the risk will be higher to develop cancer. I don't know if that's true and if yes, how quickly I have to do that to prevent anything! I'm afraid I'll have less time to undergo that treatment when I increase my dose, and I don't know when I'll be ready for that. (It's not that I want to keep those parts, I just have a problem with hospitals and suffer from panic attacks when it comes to certain check ups or medical treatments...) And another question that's just coming to my mind: Will the removal of those parts have any other effects on my physical and mental health?   I want to talk with my gynaecologist about all that anyway but I'd still like to hear some opinions/experiences from other transmen (or non-binary persons on T or others who know more than I do)! I don't know how much my gynaecologist knows about the whole topic, and unfortunately, I can't talk with my endocrinologist about it because she probably can't tell me ANYTHING. I don't wanna sound mean but she's really not competent, and I'm not the only one who noticed that. Everytime I was there, I've had bad experiences. She gave me wrong information. Not to mention the assistants. But she's the only endocrinologist within my reach so I don't have much of a choice.   So, I hope someone here can share their knowledge/experiences with me; I'd be grateful for any answer!
