Slow and steady as she goes.  Oddly enough I'm getting some breast pain now so I know something is happening.  

         It's 4AM and Gevalia dark roast here: oddly enough does anyone else here get "breast tingles" when they miss a dose or two? Been taking those blue tabs forever and it's like they're reminding "feed us girl, feed me" or else ogre you shall remain forever! 

 

          Shape lookin' good Maddie gotta lose those jeans and show some leg! You workin' a Amason warehouse? We 'ave a brand new, hated one here for $15/hourI understand they're redefining the meaning of SLAVERY why can't they "automate" like everywhere else?

You lost me on "miss a dose or two." I'd rather lose an arm. Though when I had to go off my HRT for surgery, I don't remember tingles. Hot flashes and night sweats after about two weeks, but no breast tingles.

 

In other news, my spouse was exposed to COVID on New Year's Eve (at work). We found out yesterday. Today I have a cough. Later today we're getting tested.

 

Wish me luck!

 

Hugs!

Good luck Jackie.  And wife :(

 

Kiera the Amazozanity has probably been helping my shape!  No 'bots where I'm at either.

 

Plus I'm lucky!!  Was running up to five miles/day over the covid summer.  Barefoot, til I got yelled at by a neighbor who thinks he's my boss...

 

Have good support shoes now (thru aMaz0n of course)

 

Good morning

Chafing in the summer heat? Sounds like there will be tights and nylons in my future. Feel free to try to look up my skirt you're in for a surprise. I also don't feel a need for pockets. They don't hold that much anyways.  I've been carrying a bag for the last couple of years.

Aye Matey! I was down to 165lbs back when I was wresting with passengers and loosing their baggage! lol Add gallons of "kool-aide" plus jet blast in 100+ heat and it does wonders for sweating out those otherwise dry, clogged up skin pores.

 

That was around the time I finally quit "spiro" watched others collapse, was literally (almost) passing out myself!

@Jackie C. Hoping you and your wife both test negative. How scary... I'm keeping you both in my thoughts!

Pockets are overrated - bags are where it's at. Also, I feel like if I'm passing well enough to tempt someone to look up my skirt, then I'm doing something right and I'll take it as a compliment.

 

My appointment is in two hours. Hoping for the best! Have a wonderful day everyone. ❤️ 

 

Love,

Crap. I had written a long response but was trying to correct a spelling and touched my picture.  Lost  it all.  Abbreviated responses:

 

@Jackie C. i hope you are both negative.  Contact tracing we could all have to quarantine right here.

 

Sorry i dont know what breast tingles are.  I have constant bruise like discomfort under my aureoles.  

 

I dont have wide swings on shots.  Likely because i also take progesterone daily. 

 

Now ill try to figure out what ive missed.

Good morning everyone,

The coffee is still HOT, black and strong.

We have two cat additions to our family this week. The cat in the isolation cage is Amy, her name at the time of adoption was Mazikeen, and we're not bringing a SheDevil into our home. She's caged because she has a respiratory infection and is on medication. The cat not caged is Sheldon and he currently has run of the house. They are both 6 months old and Humane Society adoptions. We had two cats for 17 years who were litter mates and they died within a few months of each other. The first was Hamlet, and he had cancer, the second was Puck, and we believe he died of a broken heart. Puck was never very vocal and once Hamlet was gone Puck would walk through the house moaning for Hamlet. It was hard to see them go. So now we're three years past and have these two to add some extra joy and entertainment to the house. To quote my Suzie: "Amy and Sheldon have been a BIG BANG for us in 2021.

 

Hugs,

 

Mindy🐛🌈🦋

Hi again

 

went back through the prior posts and i dont think i failed to comment on very much. 

 

I normally view and comment using my iPad.  Well it died on me in Virginia. And i dont mean battery.  So ive been using an old MacBook Air that has died an$ been resurrected twice or my phone. The computer battery is weak and doesn’t last and its hard for me to get my fingers in the correct place on the small phon screen.  New iPad arrives some time tomorrow.  It is slightly larger than my last one and 4 years newer.  I think the dead one was dropped too many times.  

 

Life goes on.  I use my ipad more than my phone or computer.  And i use it on my boat for navigation and weather.  It connects all my systems together. Or will when i get a nmea 0183 to USB converter.  For computer geeks thats the old 422 serial interface.  

 

Well Willow has house work to do.  She is out of the closet today for the first time since mid December.

 

Speaking of closets, i have to rebuild ours the day we were packing for Virginia it decided to collapse.

 

Willow

I was also exposed at work recently via a member of our delivery staff. Only a small portion of the people exposed were told, but HR is denying it to the rest of staff. I am so angry, but I will spare everyone here my ranting. Anyway, I hope your tests come back negative and you feel better soon.

The pockets are mainly just for my phone at work. I have a regular handbag I use to carry all my stuff when I'm out and about.

 

 

More hot chocolate coffee and stress this morning. My one partner is sick with what we hope it is a cold or sinus infection. He just feels regular sick and doesn't have any unusual symptoms. He does work in the same building as the person HR denies has COVID (despite the email I received quite clearly stating that person does have it). If he gets any worse I will make sure he goes and gets tested, but he's already been tested at least 3 separate times. He's just prone to getting sick especially when under stress.

Good morning all...so much to comment on here today.  Unfortunately, my mother passed away last night and I'm really sad...so I'm just going to say good luck to everyone today with all your adventures...and welcome to the new members.  I'm glad to have these online friends to turn to.  I'm pretty alone in my life, and it helps a lot.

 

Be yourself...live for today.

Pockets can be handy, but definitely overrated.  I like a nice big shoulder bag.

I seriously doubt I have to worry about anyone trying to look up my skirt, although it would be amusing.

@Ann W please accept my condolences. Losing a parent especially a mom is so hard. I wrap you in my virtual hugs.

Link to post

First, @Ann W I'm so deeply sorry to her about your mother. My sympathies are with you. 🤗

 

I'm back from my appointment, and still free of spiro! We're going to do another lab check in March, but for now things are in a good place between estrogen and testosterone. One less thing to be anxious about for now.

 

Also... @Mmindy Kitties! So adorbs! ❤️ 

 

Love,

~Audrey.

@Mmindy, cute puddies!!

 

@Ann W, I am sorry to hear that your mother passed.  Hugs!

 

Today was errand day in town.  The temperature was above zero (C), warm enough to eat in the car, so we stopped for burgers at A&W, our favourite.  Their coffee is so-o-o good!

 

I picked up another memory-foam-and-gel seat cushion today, since they were on sale.  I am always carrying the one I already had around with me, since I can't sit on a hard chair without one, so it made sense to get another.

 

Speaking of the reason I need a cushion, I have my first pelvic floor physiotherapy session tomorrow.  I am not optimistic that physio will work, but I hope it does.  If not, then I'll have to get in line for revision surgery.

      I'm proud of you!  That is one more hurdle you can check off.  That leaves you more energy for tomorrow's goals.    I just got back from electrolysis.   My upper lip hurts.   When I try to stop transitioning,  I always hurt more.  
    • Pumela
      Thanks for the replay. Hopes and dreams. I just want him to be happy and feel loved. It’s ripping me apart seeing him like this. He is so angry dosen’t want to talk to his counseler anymore and is sick of all the dr calls.

      Well I did it. I turned it into the news paper today this morning. Lol. I’m so excited that I know that in about a month I will be Holly legally. Omg it seems like a dream.

      I have 3 seriously Christian customers that know what I am doing, -trans-.   They don't preach , they live by example.   They have always liked me and support me now.

      OMG - same is tryue here and I never remembered much about my dad and my wife notices I am remembering more in those areas - the almost continuous life of hints and clues and smacks in the sub-conscious - my sub-conscious now says .... duh .... what did you think was going on?   @claire1000 - I forgot to mention numbing the pain with pot (gave it up but it didn't help) and drinking heavy (gave it up but that didn't help either) - the only solution has been "quit denying yourself and find the resources you need." the current society acceptance and with more and more folks coming out - it is getting easier - and I can't deny the frustrations of the past and wished I lived in an era of acceptance back then - I choose to be BETTER not BITTER about the past - that was my journey and only I could go on the journey.

      There doesn't have to be a HAHA moment as I said before it was constant hints through childhood that made me feel different from other boys, and my teenage years were a nightmare as I tried the hyper masculine {playing football}way of trying to hide how I really felt which in the sixties would have been looked on with disdain or even thought to be a mental illness. When I was sixteen or so I found a copy of DR Harrry Bengamin's The Transexual Phenomenon  when I read it I cried thinking there was a solution but cried realizing that the chances of me being able to do this was slim and none. Forty  plus years of frustration, and 20 years of drinking alcoholiclly left me little hope for real happiness. What happened when I started HRT wasn't any physical change{they were relatively slow} but just the general feeling of well being of feeling this must be what being a female is, not sure if it was the estrogen finally in me, or the Knowledge that I was on my way but it was if I was walking on a type of cloud nine that the weight of the male world was finally beginning to lift that for me was my HAHA moment.

      I gave up hiding - after 50 years of depression, anxiety , panic attacks, anorexia, multiple therapists and gray market self-HRT - I finally said I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I TRY SUPERVISED HRT AND A GOOD GENDER THERAPIST. And that is what I did - I knew I was trans but denied it all my life asnd the previous therapist knew depression and anxiety but never went to gender dysphoria even when I was caught by my wife using gray market HRT.

      Sounds awesome Myles97  Post a pic if you want but if you choose not to thats OK too. How the clothes make you feel is the important thing. Went out yesterday looking for a few clothing items and didn't find anything I was looking for but it was nice getting out .

      While I do look at a certain chain of events, really I find that I am still constantly processing it all.  As time goes by I remember more things in my past.  Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had made different choices.  But there's no point in that, since the past is past. And I wonder how much do I break from my past?  How much is just a continuing story?   Sometimes I feel as if I'm still in a holding pattern.  I suspect the covid pandemic has something to do with that. I'm not young, but I don't know where to go from here - it probably won't be far, LOL. Guess I'm just rambling now.
    • Linda Marie
      No turning back. All the dreams come out, now you can't turn back. Now you are face to face with yourself, you think to yourself, what have I done. Where do I go from here?   My no turning back was when I came out. What was yours?  
    • Linda Marie
      Well, when did I know I was in DEEP.... When my sister moved out, she left a lot of clothes. I hit the gold mine! Dresses, panties, hose, the whole nine yards, That is when I knew, I was in DEEP.  
    • Linda Marie
      Gosh, when did I realize I was in deep. Was it the time I dressed upped in my sisters clothes? We shared a bed room back then. Or was it when all I could of think was, I want to wear what's she's wearing?   What woke you up to that  Deep inner person you are today? I gave my hints up there ♥️

      Hi all! My name is Dee Jolly and I'm a nonbinary researcher at Boston Children's Hospital's Center for Gender Surgery. We're doing an interview study to understand transfeminine people's experiences with needing to discontinue their gender-affirming hormones (particularly estrogen) before a planned surgery and wanted to pass along our information. We are interested in understanding both what it's physically and emotionally like as well as how information is communicated about this process.   We are asking people to participate in a 45-60 minute 1-on-1 interview over Zoom with a member of the research team. People can be located anywhere in the United States or Canada to participate. The audio will be recorded. Participants will only be identified by a pseudonym of their choice to protect anonymity.   To participate, people must be: - Aged 18 years or older - Have been asked to discontinue their gender-affirming hormones (i.e., estrogen) before a planned surgery at a time when they were taking estrogen for a minimum of 12 continuous months (Surgery does not need to be gender-related). - Able to reliably access the internet - Comfortable with having audio recorded (for research purposes only).   For more info and next steps, please email [email protected] or visit cgsresearch.org/estrogen

      So to finish my dream and outcomes, I hope my story helps those just starting or thinking about coming out. Electrolysis came next, then the meetings, sometimes my wife would take me and read outside, she even baked cake for our meetings. I went through counseling and approved for srs, one thing was in the way...me. I still had obligations to the family. What do I do now? I called HR and my union reps, sent them pictures of me as Linda Yeah that was a rough one. But I had to protect my job. Being a federal employee also helped. We were protected!!!! This is stuff I never DREAMED I would go through.  So now I'm set so what's next. HRT, yes, and approved, also approved for breast implants.  Then I wake up. Why at my age should I go any farther? I have it all as it is, I'm outed to all and free to me at any given time.   As far as the HRT, my doctor who knows all about my lifestyle recommend I not start HRT at my age but he referred  me a plastic surgeon for breast implants, gosh  that was a bright day at the doctor's office. ( will I have them?)  I'm leaning that way. ♥️    
    • Linda Marie
      By now I'm very well known on the circuit and home life has settled. Still the fear in my wife's eyes when I went out.  I had been noticing this for a while now and finally asked her, and she blind sided me again. She told me she was scared I would not come back home, she said, and believe this...I'm scared the -transgender- circus will take you away from me. The -transgender- Circus...never heard that one before she had said it. I had a good laugh, and we both laughed. waking up from a dream I stated calling her every chance I had while I was out as Linda. I mean at least 3 times a night. I kept her up dated, Then.....electrolysis...the the meetings, counseling, ext. And finally where we are at today.  We have been married 45 years now, rain or shine♥️
