Good morning everyone,

 

It's finally Friday! I'm hopeful to take a half day today, I feel like I'm practically running on fumes, but I know that's just wishful thinking since I'm supposed to host a team meeting this afternoon. Yesterday's staff meeting via Zoom was interesting in that I had a side conversation via text with my colleague who knows about me being transgender during the meeting - how I was shrugging off all the "your hair is so long!" comments, and the fact that no one said anything about the rather obvious eye and lip makeup I was wearing. Or, maybe they *did* notice, but they were too shy to speak up. I might take that a sign that acceptance among my other colleagues will be forthcoming when I do come out!

 

@Emily michelle It's so wonderful to read how involved your workplace has been in supporting you and your transition there over the past couple weeks. Hopeful that that continues as you go forward!

 

Really happy about a girls night on Zoom that a couple friends planned for this weekend. They really want to watch the first few episodes of the new Bachelor series together. I'll go along with them even though I don't really care for the show, because it just means so much to me to feel included as one of the girls! ❤️ 

 

I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Good morning everyone,

 

The coffee started off home brewed Folgers Dark Silk HOT, black, and strong.

 

I'm sitting in a Ford service center for the third morning in a row. Three different vehicles to service, two company vehicles, and today it's Suzie's Explorer. Ford Srevice Center coffee is warm, mild, and endless.

Good morning

 

i hope everyone is able to end the week on an up beat.  The support coming from your employer is really great.  The changes at the federal level are encouraging for all of us.

 

I usually start my morning with my Facebook friends then come here.  As I read posts I find myself looking for the “like” button.  lol

 

im sure if there was one we’d quickly fill the server space with like buttons.  Not much happening here.  Expecting rain later.  I do wish I could get on my boat.  All this time to do nothing.  Three more weeks at least is going to drive me crazy.  At least I get this big bandage off this time next week. But in its place I’ll be in an air cast.  Which I can take off to shower or sleep.

Good morning everyone. Just getting to my second cup of coffee. I am off from work today so i am getting a late start to my day. My cat is super excited that I am home and has not left me alone for a minute since i got up.

 

I am very excited to be starting with my new therapist today. I have not been in a therapy session since December 28 . It has been too long a wait to get started on working on the new me.

 

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!

I've had 3 mugs on "Counter Culture #46 coffee this morning but apparently is wasn't enough. I slipped on my knee high boots and left the house thinking, "hmmm they feel a little tight today, it must be the thicker socks".  nope, wrong feet!  SMH. I had to go back inside to set things right and start the day off on the right foot.   I need a day off. hahahaha.

God, I hate my body. MMM I may have expressed that some other time, or 5. As normal up early even with getting up for almost 2 hours last night. Probably pass out in the chair later.

@Willow I may call on your expertise once again. Let me see what I come up with. 

 

At least I am alone today my youngest came home early yesterday. Saying they wanted him at another school today.

 

Hope, everyone has a good day. Again waiting for the coffee to warm up.

I bet you thought "Start off on the right foot." was how to begin a march, hike, or business. Nope it's all about foot wear, and I've done exactly the same thing getting dressed in a hurry. I'm glad you're back in step with comfort.

 

Hugs,

As promised, an update on my therapy appointment this morning. They formally asked me if I wanted them to start using preferred pronouns on notation and calling me Keira instead of -deadname- in the waiting room/in conversation. (For clarity, I see a general therapist at the moment under supervision of a psychiatrist due to depression). So she asks me, and I say "yes please", and she's all "I got you". Obviously -deadname- will be on paperwork for insurance reasons, until I can change it legally, but this girl is taking a step in the right direction. I'm giddy. Don't mind me. I'm off to work. I'll catch everyone later.

-Hugs for all,

Keira ❤️

This is just wonderful to hear, Keira! It truly is a wonderfully affirming feeling to hear our own name that validates who we know ourselves to be. I also love when my healthcare providers use my preferred name with me and do so without hesitation, and even with a smile. It's even on the bottle with my estradiol prescription.

 

@CBabe Speaking of smiles, you have a lovely smile! 😃

 

@Mmindy I think you may be an expert on car dealership coffee at this point. ☕

 

Off to my afternoon meeting. Last thing before the weekend!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Good TGIF afternoon everyone,

 

It's paycheck Friday in our house. The weekend has started for me and soon to be for Suzie. She's had a tough week working even though it was from home. So we're going out for dinner and adult beverages, at Koto Japanese Gril & Sushi. 

 

@Bri2021I never thought about how much ones feet would gain or loose size as they loose weight. I haven't been able to put on these Harley Davidson Boots since 2010, and as I was reorganizing my portion of the closet, I tried them on and they fit again. Yea!

@Mmindy as soon as I saw those boots I thought Harley. My minds think alike?

 

Well I'm a happy girl. I just got a message from one of my GYNs nurse. We share a Star Wars fanaticism. Anyway, My GYN has prescribed my E. I should be coming by  mule express sometime. So this girl is doing the happy dance once again. Hope my dance isn't shot down in a flaming heap. As it very well could. I have come to expect the worse then I am not disappointed if it fails. 

 

Yeah, I know. I should always look at the positive. but with my life the way it has been in the past it is hard.

 

Hugs, To all. Especially @Willow

While I FREQUENTLY ride the pessimism train, it's not healthy. Don't do that. Happy dance. With high kicks and cartwheels. It's your time to get what you want. Reach out and grab it.

 

Hugs!

@Mmindy you’ve peaked my interest when I get this wrap of I’ll see if mine still fit. Especially post foot surgery.  My big toe should be smaller.  They may well be too big.

 

 

Link to post

@KymmieL thank you

 

and I’m routing for you on several issues.  I’m curious, why do you already have a gyn?  You don’t have to answer if you prefer not to but no one on my care team has ever mentioned that to me.

 

hugs

      I saw a heartwarming/heart wrenching love story called Soldier’s Girl (2003) about six months ago and it was worth the cry. I was not disappointed. IMDB gives it 7.9 and it was well deserved.   Susan R🌷

      I had a cowl neck like that many years ago, but pink. I had a love hate relationship with it. It gave me the illusion I had breast, but was less revealing. What I didn't like, and why I avoided any thing with low necks. Was because I didn't have any breast. Even though I was fluffy, a push up bra didn't do munch. Now that I have proper breast tissue, and my muscles have changed to fat. A push up bra is my friend.    Also a friend got back to me, and said it looked cute, and agrees with you guys. I can pull it off for daytime.  She just is worried about the fit. I told her I would snap a picture of me wearing it later, and send her the picture.

      I'll never have that hourglass figure.  But it doesn't really seem to be a big issue for women in my (older) age range.  Perhaps age has its perks after all.

      I like Carol a lot.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I'm under 50 but still wanted to comment if that is ok. You said you can't bring yourself to talk to your wife about it, what about your daughter? Can you confide in her, and even check in with her to see how the wife would take it? Sometimes getting confirmation from another person that it may work out OK could give you that boost of confidence to approach her about it.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I don't have cleavage, but I have worn shirts for work that showed off quite a bit of chest, no one has said anything so far. As for age appropriate, I'm 37 and pretty much dress like a teenager (I get free clothes from a coworker's daughter when she gets tired of them). I have worn very small tops that show off a lot of chest and tummy, and things like fishnet stockings (not at work but out and about). I really don't think that top you showed is alarming in any way.
    • Jandi
      Sounds interesting.
    • Beatriz
      I liked very much a Chilean film called "Una mujer fantástica" (A fantastic woman, 2017). It's worth watching. Perhaps you can get it dubbed or subtitled in English.   Many Almodóvar movies portray an LGBTQ story or have it as a background. They range from the kitsch / camp to the profound, and they also vary in quality or inspiration, so people may love some and dislike others. If forced to recommend only one, I'd go for "La ley del deseo" (Law of desire, 1987).   Also, I recently watched a documentary called "Bambi" (2013) about Marie-Pierre Pruvot, nicknamed Bambi: a French trans woman born in Argelia who performed as a showgirl in the 50s and 60s and then became a teacher. She tells her story and I liked it very much.

      Even before I began my journey, I was always fascinated by hourglass figure. I was, of course, making up some silly reasons why I would need a waist-trainer ("it helps with weight loss") or corset. With the beginning of transition, it only made sense and became just a natural hope to achieve it. Currently, I can get a fairly good resemblance with steel-boned corset laced up all the way. And I absolutely love the feeling. One additional benefit, it helps with the posture so it is another reason to use it at least around house if you spend plenty of time sitting.   Cannot comment much on the padding, as I was starting with very non-masculine figure waist-down, and new fat redistribution only enhanced those areas to a point where shaping clothes are new reality in my future 🙂

      Facial Team uses a private contractor, a trans woman, who is quite skilled at photo shop.   She tries to only show you what is realistically possible.   They are only interested in removing male puberty damage as much as possible and some aging in my case.  I hope it is OK to mention FT here, they are a wonderful organization.      ---WILLOW---

      Some films I especially liked The Dress You Have On (YouTube omelleto channel) Normal (2003 with Tom Wilkerson and Jessica lange) The Crying Game Transamerica Zerophilia The Danish girl Call me by your name Hedwig and the angry inch The normal heart My life in pink   Any others you recommend?

      Holly that top certainly does push the PG label.  A bit close to X.     I once dressed a bit over the top.  After all i had somehow noticed the women with short skirts  and low tops more than the "plain" ones.  It was also fun at first to excite that glance from men.  Time has lengthened my skirts and yet somehow i feel just as feminine even in dirty jeans and top working the farm.    We all have our styles which makes the world go round.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sounds like it may be loosely based around DBT but maybe not as in  depth.
