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

      Thank you for sharing this. I wish I had the ability to have conversations like this.

      My wife initially set a boundary at “no surgery” but has since changed her mind, or become resigned to that surgery actually occurring. I discuss everything with her, but it is my decision. She has acknowledged that she has also changed during our 14 years together (she’s an aneurism survivor) and wants to continue our relationship as a lesbian couple. The sad thing is, or really the thing that is hard for me to deal with is that she is very dependent on me. She doesn’t earn a living wage, has no credit, and long ago gave up helping to manage our finances. I feel that she is trapped and her support for me is due to not having any other choice. This breaks my heart.

      Since on HRT, my hair has actually grown back some but it will never do much. I haven't had much hair on top for too long. It's wig time. I went to Hair Club recently. They have a hair transplant system but I don't have enough donor hair. They have another system where they glue on hair that looks natural. It's only for the wealthy. We're talking about $4,500 to start with and $350 every few months to replace it for the rest of your life. Not for me. A good synthetic wig can look awesome. Just wash and put on stand to dry. Never loses it's shape. A real hair wig has to be styled like any other cis womans hair.

      @DianaW I thought I was reading my own entry except I've been married 28 years and my wife is in the same mindset. We just had an explosion yesterday with me on HRT for nearing a year and a half. Just finally found a separate therapist she plans to see. I have an incredible therapist and I must say find one you like as soon as you can because it is vital for you. Best Heather

      Parting ways with someone that you shared your deepest thoughts with has to be hard. It sounds like your new therapist will be good for you though. Hugs

      This brought me to tears. So sad. That very easily could have been my spouse. I firmly believe it was divine intervention that stopped me from ending myself. I am so thankfull.

      I had my last session with my other therapist last night. It was surprisingly hard despite the negativity I had been feeling over the last couple sessions. We skimmed over what had been worked on and I how feel now about thing. I think I really surprised him at one point, he had asked if I remember our start date and how sessions we've had. Not only did I know the exact  date, off the top of my head, but also how many sessions we had and the fact that the day and time were changed after 2 weeks.  When the clock ran out I did have to end things rather abruptly as it was getting hard to hold back the tears. It was hard to say good bye and I did actually cry a little afterwards but it was for the best. Now that I've already had the first meet and greet with the new one last week and just ended with the old, it feels like a passing of the baton as I start a more definitive leg of my journey.    Gotta go for now; have no idea what I'm wearing today.

      I think this is the way it is for a great many of us. I've been married for over 50 years. I started taking transitioning stuff without telling her. I think that made it easier for me when I came out to her. Then it wasn't a question of me starting HRT. It was a question of what is safest for me to take. I'm not suggesting that this is what you should do though. Starting this way caused HUGE trust issues, a lot more than if I would have talked with her about it beforehand. Communication has always been a big problem with me. I'm learning how to now. Since then, every step I take is a huge step for her to accept, almost game ending for us. It's a delicate balance between my moving forward and holding back to wait for her acceptance. My spouse is in end stages of autoimmune pancreatitis. She was born with it. She is never below level 4 pain even with heavy pain meds. We're alike in that I didn't figure myself out till recently. Not till after I retired and had more time to dwell on things. My spouse didn't sign up for this either. It will never be the way it was between us, but we are working through it.  I wish you well. Hang in there. Don't give up. You deserve to be happy with yourself. I don't regret transitioning at all. I am so much happire now. I can never go back to who I was. Hugs.

      faceapp is really kind of useless for seeing what you'd look like. I look absolutely nothing like my faceapp pics from before I transitioned! But I'm happy with what I got/am getting anyways   also I don't know why but snapchat and faceapp filters always gave me the most awful dysphoria, so I stopped using them and was happier as a result.

      Students had been encouraged to wear rainbow colors to school on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day, as part of the celebration, which was hosted on campus by the Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club in support of people who publicly “come out” as a member of the LGBTQ community, said Heather Bailey, a Windsor Unified School District spokeswoman.   https://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/news/group-of-windsor-high-students-don-red-white-and-blue-and-gadsen-flag-to-p/?taid=617233c17778c400018f0c1a&utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=twitter

      Stop the communication without assigning fault to either of you.  Some things are just not meant to be.  I know it will be hard, I had to wait until both my parents were dead to make headway.  I make public presentations about parents and children's relations and the thing I am faced with most often is a situation where a parent has the idea that they OWN A CHILD.  Sadly there are people with certain religious views that are told they do own the children and have gotten ideas that if the kid does something wrong the parent will be punished and the parent does not want to be punished, so they pound on the child, even adult children.  When I am talking to groups I point out that they are not a child's owner, only a temporary steward who will give the child up.  Let your therapist know about all of this and see if the therapist can help you make a plan to make a clean cut so you can become yourself.  Your mom will not listen as things are now, and while I know she is scared and mourning for you, still, that is her life.

      I have come to a new depression low with having to sever communication with my mom. She ants to control every aspect of my life with no concern about my feelings and happiness. She has been putting out there that my therapist and doctors are hurting me and hate men. I am not going to give up who I am. That doesn't mean I am killing the person I as but evolving to a better more healthy person I am to be. To experience who I feel inside. She does not want me to do this and doesn't care if I am truly happy. All she cares about is her own happiness so she claims I am killing her son but really evolving into the daughter she didn't have and I as supposed to be. I guess she thinks if I reverted back maybe I would find someone and produce some grandchildren for her but that is not going to happen due to the fact I am not able to father children. The woman inside me knows it will not happen. I didn't want to make the decision to stop talking but I have no other idea what to do with the hope she will see the truth and accept it.
