Rachel I understand the need for an IV this morning. lol. It must be this weather system moving in but it took a major amount of willpower to get out of my warm bed and go for my morning walk with the wife and dog.

Hi again,

 

today was a shower day.  My wife was busy putting together supper in the crock pot so I went in on my own.  Bad idea, very bad!  I have to wear a bag over my foot to keep it dry.  Apparently I did a poor job of sealing it because my foot is pretty wet.  And if I thought it felt miserable, that’s nothing compared to wet.  I’m spending the day in PJs it’s all I had that would go over my foot.  I’ll deed the only other thing Wednesday and Friday.  My wife suggested I stay naked.  I didn’t think that was a good idea.

 

@KymmieL, one thing we all do is let our minds wonder and they always go to the bad side.  It’s not easy but try to just let things happen as they come.  Don’t always think the worst, all you are doing is building up your internal stress.  If she’s going to leave you, she will, but in the meantime don’t dwell on it, don’t think every odd thing is in preparation to leave.  You will drive yourself crazy with stress.

Good morning all. I had my coffee at 4:00 today. Waffles, peanut butter and honey. Speaking of cleaning, I can't even step into my garage. Been a construction worker for over 40 years, and handyperson. I think it's time to clean up at 68, I feel I should slow down on construction projects and enjoy life more. Besides, I don't have the strength or energy for that stuff anymore. Just about finished with a room I added to my house. House was built in 1900. Just way too much to do with old houses. Hope you all have a great day.

Good afternoon from the Central Time Zone,

 

@Jamie68 cleaning/reorganizing the garage is something I do every 4th or 5th project. Some of the things I'm working on now are to facilitate my future retirement projects/capabilities. My shop table is organized chaos with off fall from recent work. The most effective way to clean it is with a wire mesh strainer over my shopvac hose. Anything smaller than a #8mm nut will pass into the waste bin, all other objects are pulled off and sorted for later use. Sawdust, metal filings, and smaller nuts bolts and washers are gone never to be seen again. My tablesaw is my layout surface, my work bench is heavy duty for pounding, blocking, and bracing. 

 

They built a whole whole industry around "This Old House" including my favorite comedian/actor Tim Allen.

 

Good luck with your garage sort,

 

Mindy🐛🌈🦋

LOL.   My son bought a late19th century farmhouse.  He has been a very busy fellow.

 

Willow, you should just get a nice big flannel nightgown.   That will take care of it all - and be very comfy.

Well... 

Had my call with doctor about blood work today at 230 while at work.  It went great.  I had my HRT meds in hand by 430.  Super happy to be starting this but also a little nervous.

Congratulations!

 

Did you make it out of the pharmacy parking lot before you took your first dose? I didn't. Managed to the the first patch on in the (cramped) front seat of a '92 Saturn SL1 in front of the Goddess and everyone. 😉

 

May you enjoy the ride and it bring you all you wished for and more!

 

Hugs!

That's wonderful news. @2beBreanna.  Kind of scary though, isn't it?  I haven't started yet...but soon.  I feel your excitement/nervousness.

Enjoy the experience!

Yes but only because I did not eat anything today and did not want to take meds on empty stomach.  I made it home and ate then took first dose. 

 

@Ann W
Yes it is scary to think about the changes that will hopefully come.  It's funny how something we soo want to happen can be so scary at the same time.

Congratulations @2beBreanna I wasn’t nervous, I was excited to get started.  But, I still waited so that I took them on a schedule that was easy to follow.  I was momentarily hesitant before giving myself my first estradiol shot, but I just went for it.  Not hesitant anymore takes longer to get everything out and sanitized.

@2beBreanna That's wonderful news! Happy re-birthday! I remember being super excited and nervous when I started HRT. Hoping the experience and changes bring you much joy now and into the future.

 

Love,

Congratulations @2beBreanna, Here’s to the start of your medical transition. May your results be everything you’re hoping for and that the timing of the changes will be an easy adjustment for you.

 

My Best,

Susan R🌷

Thanks. I will need Luck and a couple more garbage cans. The big flannel night gown sounds good too. Congrats on your starting on HRT. That's awesome.

@2beBreannaYay! Congratulations sister!! I am excited for you and look forward to starting HRT myself one day!

Thanks everyone.  It happened a lot faster than I thought it would.  I wish everyone would be able to start as easily.  To many hoops to jump through for many. 

 

Gotta get to bed early tonight so I can wake up at 4 to shovel before work.  Where can I get a cozy flannel nighty.  Can't seem to find cute comfy pjs.

That's a great question! I never thought of getting one of those! That would be really nice to have in addition to pajamas.

Congrats @2beBreanna!   I couldn't stop myself and took mine as soon as I got in the car. Why did I park so far away? Stupid street parking.

 

One of my friends at work gave a bag of clothes today. She came into my office area with it and immediately started  rummaging through it. Pulling stuff out and showing it to me. I think you'll like this...This'll look good on you. I was only slightly mortified this was happening. My office mates are guys and knew me before, made it kinda awkward. I got some nice stuff though and a dress. A sleeveless dress none-the-less. Of course I had to try it on when I got home (I tried it all on). It fits....really good. I just started going out in skirts and now a dress appears in my life. Just need an occasion to wear it. And the wife thing. I think she said no dresses but I'm not sure if that was no buying, wearing or just not in front of her. Oh well, life's a gamble.

Aww, @ElizabethStarthat would be so cool! I would have such a hard time waiting to get home to try them all on! Love it!! That was really sweet of her ❤️

It's great that you have that kind of support with your coworkers. I don't think any of mine would have been that thoughtful.

When the student is ready...the dress will appear.  Good luck with the wife.

Early morning to y’all .

 

woke up an hour ago and couldn’t get back to sleep.  I won’t make coffee this early though.

 

so yesterday I took a shower.  I bagged my foot carefully so it wouldn’t get wet.  No didn’t get wet, it got soaked.  I tried all day to get it to dry.  Used a fan, a hair dryer anything I could come up with.  Still wet.  About 5pm I gave up.  I removed the wet cotton wrapping. Put on two clean, white Harley Davidson socks, and put on my air cast.  I know the doctor is not going to be happy with me but this is better than showing up Friday to get the stitches out with a damp bandage .  A lot more comfortable too.  Turns out there was a line of small holes on the bottom of the brand new Glad Kitchen bag.  Might as well buy the cheap ones.  
 

I’ll be back later when the coffee is made and and I’m ready for a cup.

      I had a 77 359 Pete with a big cam 400 Cummins, A76 GMC Astro cab over with a 600 horse Detroit Diesel / silver 92 TT/A. It was built to haul oil pipe to Alaska so it was heavy duty and perfect for hauling coal in Ky.

      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.

      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?
