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

@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

and 4 hours later I quit.

      You do and thank you.  After the last time, something clicked and I'm starting to see the real me in the mirror and in my self image.

      Again, congratulations! Still jealous though. 🥺   Hugs!

      God, I love being a girl!

      My guess would be a realization of, "Nobody is agreeing with me. Maybe I'm wrong?" Good on her. Good on the nurse and like I keep telling you, you look just like a skinnier version of my sister-in-law. She's never mentioned anybody mis-gendering her so I think you're stuck with being "Liz the woman." Congratulations!   Hugs!

      I’m planning on having these done this summer in Thailand, so I will be following your adventure. Good luck! You must be so excited!

      Lots of good stuff in that story.  It sounds like your wife's acceptance doesn't run in a straight line...like a graph that ultimately goes upward, but is kinda jagged along the way.
    • RhondaS
      She must have really wanted them to retrieve you, @ElizabethStar . The other 'she/her' talk? That'd make me want to accompany my spouse everywhere!
    • Kasumi63
      I don’t know anything about Mexico, but I just had the surgery in Japan—less than a week ago. I can share more about my own experience, if that’s what you decide to have done. Good luck!

      I'm smiling with my eyes. 😷 Wearing my favorite denim skirt...just because.

      Knowing no trans people whatever locally (at least as far as I know) and just living in the community I don't see any advantage to it. To me it is preferable to live in the general population rather than segregation, which would likely bring as many problems as it solves.   Tracy

      Yay! progress! What a happy story!  I took a check into the bank today to get it cashed and the cashier said she liked the color of my nail polish! So nice!
    • AgnesBardsie
      I find this so true! The girl is fearless whereas the boy is a big chicken! Whenever I feel doubts rising I tell myself, "Agnes, you're in charge. Do what needs to be done," and it gets done! It's amazing! Agnes can talk to complete strangers about anything under the sun! I love this girl!
    • AgnesBardsie
      Great question! Number one. Be true to yourself. It's your inner sense that matters, no one else. When doubts creep in, put them under a light and ask yourself honestly where they're coming from. Is it anticipation of someone's negative opinion that is causing the doubt? If so, remember that they haven't actually responded yet. It's the anticipation that's causing the doubt. You know in yourself better than anyone else who you are. Keep your focus on that. Love who you are. Others will love you for who you are as a result. Two more pieces of advice. (1) Breathe! (2) Smile!

      To be honest I’m not completely out yet but my parents know and my friends so I can maybe tell you about that feeling, maybe, that’s more on my experience. I told some of my friends and my partner before saying it to my parents and I did not feel really better because I still had to tell it to my parents so I just kept thinking about this. So maybe idk this is based on me but maybe it’s because you’re still stressed about the fact that your sister and mother don’t know yet. And again you might not feel exactly better after they know or maybe yes depending on their reaction but you might feel it off your shoulders, but like I said it’s my experience and we’re all different. So I don’t really know but at least you’ll have a good end to this, and that you’ll be accepted by your mother and sister even if it might take a while ^^ so good luck! I think you can do it!

      hehe thanks that makes me even more ready lulz xD
