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.

@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

@KymmieL I think I owe you an apology.  I wasn’t looking for a job but one has fallen into my lap.  Part time working from home.  I was on Facebook and saw a post from someone who I didn’t know I responded .  She got back to me and 3 hours later I have a job

      Always liked this Dave Clark Five song and like it even better hearing Tom Petty doing it..............

      @Shay As a congenital nonconformist, I love the rebellion! I also think a monkees shirt and a leather skirt with heels matching the shirt would make a great outfit.   A second odd pairing of bands   . This also occurred in 1967 when the Doors opened for Simon and Garfunkel. Doors opened with   and one of my favorite songs

      I like sports bras because the cup size isn't much of an issue.  It's fine under a sweater or some cool weather clothes, but I'll switch off to something else with a lighter top - or lower neckline.

      I can echo all the above, and you may have read how I did it- Strangest ways of coming out... Not totally recommended if your relationship isn't as "Creative" as mine.    The worst one I had to do was actually my boss. Everyone in the office knew about me and so I went to talk with my boss who is bit of a dinosaur. Nice fella, but opinionated. I told him about my depression and how it was started by low testosterone and some realisation about myself, when he interrupted me... "Well, we all get problems as we get older. the ones I don't get are those F*king Perves. Forty, married, Couple of kids. Suddenly decide they want to be a F*king woman! What's that all about?". I told him I would speak with him later and crept out of his office about 3" high.   It took me six months to try again, and after several "Are you sure about this" and with 10 other members of staff looking on through the window, he eventually looked back at me and gave me a hug. He admitted he was a dinosaur, but said he wasn't afraid to evolve with my help. Actually, he's never failed to call me Tamsyn or call me She / her. in the six months since.   I think the answer is- give her a chance. You need to be you. If it fails, it fails. Nothing can change that.

      It is exciting and very scary too. I just wish I would have been true to myself so many years ago. I knew who I was. Just scared to live. I had no support system then. I had many gay friends but that’s the point they were gay and I’m trans. I do hate these titles so much. I am a women inside so even though we were very close and they didn’t get me, I was an outsider in the gay community funny how that works isn’t it at least my experience we are all in little groups segregated why can’t we all just be who we are. So. I’m slowly taking the mask down letting my true self hopefully shine through this is going to be a very long long process but it is a process that needs to happen. I thank all of you who listen.

      Wise words. I know she has trust issues as evidenced by her behavior towards me i.e. wanting to know where I am and what I'm doing constantly. If I'm not with someone she knows she wants to know why etc. It has made me quite angry at times. I can't seem to go anywhere or do anything unless it's in secret unless she approves.
    • LusciousTheLock
      I received my first mail as Tamsyn today. It was a registered post / parcel. He asked if Tamsyn could sign, and so I did. It was my new glasses. I never bought female glasses before as I felt too ashamed as James to do so, but now I feel even more complete and comfortable
    • SheenaT
      Thank you. I need encouragement right now.

      While I agree you MAY have a rough road ahead, it may not be as tough as you think.  You are worried about hurting your wife, I get that. I felt the same way.  However, my wife was hurting just watching me withdraw and suffer in silence. She didn't know why I was being that way but felt the relationship was about to crumble.  When I finally came out to her she said it was a relief because being with a transgender woman was far better than a relationship without communication and trust which is where she thought we were heading.  I was blown away.  So here's the thing, hold back and not tell her and risk the relationship becoming toxic from deception or tell her and risk the relationship breaking apart because she didn't sign up to be a transgendered person's wife. There is a risk either way. Or- it may turn out to be good or at least something that can be work through with therapy.   The risk factor always comes down to "how good of a relationship is it now".  Good luck, I know it's torturous at this point in your decision process. and as Jackie said, have a life backup plan for support/housing etc in case it does goes south. I had already scoped out cheap housing and looked at my budget to see if I could survive without financial help and knew I could do it albeit with a lot of scaling back.

      Well, we're not kinky anymore. Now its all she can do to get undressed in front of me. But I have my memories lol.
    • SheenaT
      Oooo pretty. Part of my reasoning is to get used to wearing them. I'm trying to hide some of my current changes too since I'm not out to anyone but a close sis friend and partially to my wife.

      Estrogen is wonderful. You are beautiful. Your body clearly loves the E.
