You talking about wedding ring losing stones brought back a memory. I got married at 18, and unemployed, and my gal 3 months pregnant. I had to buy engagement/wedding ring set from pawn shop. The night before our wedding I decided to clean the rings. I didn't even notice I lost a couple small stones down the sink drain. When putting the ring on my wife's finger at the alter, she noticed. She's a Virgo. They notice everything. She was really good about it. The pawn shop replaced them for a small fee. Lesson learned, NEVER clean rings with drain open. We've been married 50 yrs now.

 

On another subject, I'm really excited. Just got off of phone with my insurance company. I found an LGBTQ doctor in network. Adam Houghton, in Bloomington, Illinois. Only 30 miles from my house. My insur. co. set him up as my primary care physician while I was on the phone. I can go to him after 3rd of nxt. month. I'm jumping for joy!

That's funny. Everyone in my house has at least "B" breasts, even the guys. The women all have at least "D" cups. Both the guys were overweight. The 17 yr old thinned down to normal. The 23 yr old was almost 600 lbs. He's around 300 now. Working hard to get down to 280. He's really strong, but has a lot of extra skin. My 2 older sisters and mom are and were "B" gals. I'm hoping I will be too.

Been there! I had larger breasts when I was just heavy. They're the right shape now though. Tragically, my weight-loss routine is not conductive to huge breasts. Well, maybe not huge. I was hoping for a B. C tops. Still, I'm only about halfway to the point where breast growth generally stops in older gals so hopes remain high.

@Willow I didn’t think about the fuel. I think it just celebrated its 2nd year in the tank. We didn’t get much snow last year. 
 

@Bri2020 I’m holding off on another fashion show for a bit. My friend said she has more clothes for me. 
 

it’s very interesting how I’ve changed. I used to disappear like a ghost at picture time.

I think mine will still grow more. My nipples are still tender, and seem to get hard quite often. I have nice firm "A" breasts now.

Yeah, funny that. I got real camera-shy about the same time puberty hit. Now? Yeah, take a picture. I look amazing.

This is (still) me. Someday soon I hope I will feel less fearful in front of the camera. Working on that self-consciousness demon.

 

Four months into HRT (anniversary was yesterday), I mostly have extremely sore nipples and what might *barely* be called an A cup. I hope the estrogen goddess gives me her blessings in due time.

 

Back to work...

 

Love,

Yes I’m hoping the E goddess friends me soon.  I was on Spironolactone for a year, and Progesterone for nine months before my left nipple showed any signs of life.  That’s when my  endocrinologist gave in and put me on E. Not quite 3 months on that along with the other two. Almost the next day my right nipple woke up.  They both still hurt. I will say I think there has been shape change but not size.  More feminine perk, less male flop.

 

on another note, saw my foot doctor today because of the wet episode yesterday.  The nurse took out my stitches, and sent me to x-ray. No sooner were the X-rays up when in walked the doctor. Looked everything over and decided I was good, healing nicely x-rays showed everything was as it should be.  Told me stay with the boot and the scooter.  I could take the boot off in bed and I could shower but not soak my foot.  All that and three days early!  
 

This girl would do a happy dance but it would end up one footed hopping until I fell on my face.  😃

 

happy hugs

Good evening everyone,

 

I am not an all day coffee drinker so no coffee for me now. I posted this morning about how happy i was to be working from home and being able to stay in girl mode all day, well that lasted for 30 minutes. I got an email for an appointment at the health clinic with less then an hours notice. I did the superman quick-o change-o (minus the telephone booth) into boy cloths and out the door I went. Made it in time and now have received my first dose of the Moderna vaccine. So I guess it was worth it.

 

 

Well the puck drops in 40 minutes so have a great night everyone, see you in the AM at the coffee mess.

That's the way mine started, male flop, hard buds, then shape. And lets not forget PAIN when trying to squeeze through a tight doorway and rubbing nipples on door frame. That's an experience I didn't expect.

 

 Hope we all get the breasts we want.

 

Oh, great news about your foot.

I'm skeptical they'll ever find it but it is kind of fun to watch.

I am still a little fearful myself but I also want to live out in the world as myself. At least here I can push the envelope with my outfits and not receive destructive criticism. But this isn't FB. You hit that submit button and it's there to share. It's been helping me push myself along.

 

Congrats on hitting 4 months. For me things ...Well I thought my girls were growing a little at 2 months but then I had a, I guess say surge 6 months later. According to my trusty cloth measuring tape I'm a 34D and still fit fine in a 36a but maybe could be a B. I'm  throwing in the towel on this for a bit. I'll just wait see what happens. I'm planning to have made a final decision on BA by this next fall.

Good Morning! Coffee is on. Took yesterday off of work. Had to clear the driveway twice. Took a nice afternoon nap. Back to work today. 

 

Have a great day everyone!

Liz, I guess I have an advantage in the fact that I'm retired. Even so, I don't look forward to meeting up with my old boss and some coworkers that have been my friends foe around 30 years. I feel for you. 

 

My wife didn't turn off the tv till 2:30 this morning. She has severe health problems and can't sleep normal hours even though she takes sleeping meds. Her going to sleep woke me up. Then I just lay there with my brain racing and getting depressed about what I'm putting her through. She says It's ok with me changing, but I still feel like a total -censored-. She really can't leave me because of her health. I'm basically her home care nurse. She is in bed 22 hours a day on average. I feel guilty for being so excited about finally getting to change. So here I am again sitting in front of my computer doing a digital jigsaw puzzle, eating, being depressed, and dumping on you. I hope I'm not bringing you gals down with me.

 

Chloe, I think I have a transwoman relative with your name that lives around the Quad Cities. If it's you, please don't mention me to family yet. My wife's family is really a vicious bunch. I don't care what anyone says to or about me. I just don't want to make it harder for my wife. Thanks.

About five years instead of the 2-3 for younger girls.

A friend of mine keeps hammering this into my head. It's a hard lesson to learn because I really enjoy helping people. So let me share her wisdom with you. It's not "young" lady wisdom, she's 68. Anyway, the lesson is: You need to learn to take care of yourself first.

The logic is that you can't help anyone if you're a mess. If you pay attention, people who give their everything to their long-term sick partners tend to die first. Don't do that. Make your wife comfortable and as happy as you can, but do not neglect your own self-care. You matter too.

 

Hugs!

@Jamie68, no that's not me. I am further east than the Quad Cities. I would never out anyone anyway. I have family members who would never understand me, so I get it.

I totally understand this. It's pretty much what I'm going through. Watching my wife slowly fade away. Settling with my own issues has been the best thing I have done. Since I started hrt my ability to handle stress has greatly improved. If I had waited I would have self destructed by now.

Good morning everyone, happy Wednesday. A later start for me this morning. Felt good to sleep in a little, but I missed my morning exercise today. I've had the first cup of coffee already and looking to start my month-end projects today so I don't get bogged down on Friday and have to work late into the weekend. Otherwise it's been a much more mellow week this week compared to last, I think because everyone realizes that we'll need to wait a bit for the system to catch up on the vaccines.

I speak with caregivers regularly, and the frequency I repeat something like this is extremely high. In fact I am giving a presentation about self-care next week that I'm calling "Being Kind to Yourself." I understand where the sacrifices come from, and there are many noble reasons. In talking with caregivers especially for the first time, I often ask them to share with me something they did for themselves in the last week. It is an epiphany for many when they struggle to name anything.

 

@Jamie68 I'm sorry to hear about your wife. Please don't worry about dragging me or any of us down, we're here to support each other and I'm happy to read that starting transition has helped your mood and stress level.

 

@ElizabethStar Thanks for the congrats! I keep wondering when (or if) I'll have a surge of growth, but if I listen to my partner, she keeps saying I've already got breasts at this point. So I guess I should take that as an indicator. Or maybe it's just because she's a little hung up on them because they're the one of the most obvious signs of my transition.

 

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I retired before I realized who I was.   Since I worked for the city here, I sometimes meet former coworkers at festivals and such.   It can be a little weird.    I just tell them “I’ve been through some changes.”   LOL

I still have to learn this. Because most of the time i don't give 2 shites about myself.

 

Oh, yeah. My wife is a real gem. So get home from work last night. everything is normal, after her bath. She sits on the couch nodding off. like I said normal. after 11 my youngest comes home. He has this I had a bad day look.

him: "Mom, didn't tell you?"

me: Tell me what?"

 

So he proceeds to tell me on his way to work. probably not ten minutes after he left the store for a visit. Some lady pulls out in front of him. he winds up t-boning her. Luckily he had slammed on the brakes and the airbag didn't pop. He was shaken up. The truck is still drive-able. or should I say mine and my wife's truck. He is buying it from us. He has made 2 payments to my wife. I let that slide because she payed for it. She didn't have the courtesy to tell me our son was in an accident.

 

I didn't mention this in my post about what happened Sunday. They had used my laptop and had gone into my gmail account to get some paperwork. My gmail account is where I have all my job search and TG info going. I can't password protect this as my wife uses it for her Monday zoom meetings. OH, Well.

 

Still no E. I am going to check the VA web site and see if I can track it.

Well just checked and yes they put it on a dead horse. Idiots at the USPS. They sent it through Denver. Due Friday. sent Monday. 5 days to go 45 miles. So from Cheyenne to Denver back to Cheyenne then to Laramie.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to check tomorrow and it is in Tulsa or still in Denver, NC.

      Not impossible, but it takes a LOT of work to build man-legs without T. For example, I can press 11 plates (that's 990 pounds plus another 110 for the carriage) and my legs still look girly. It'll take a lot of calf and leg work to thicken them up without T.   Hugs!
    • AwesomeClaire
      Well, she probably won't be supportive then or use your name/pronouns, unfortunately. That's a tough one. You have to think about the possibility/eventuality tho that she will find out. How would you want her to find out?
    • AwesomeClaire
      Ok, have you tried strength training? For example, exercising regularly and including weightlifting, to reduce body fat and increase muscle mass?

      Shame and fear of how others would react and not wanting to disappoint my parents.  Growing up from the time I started kindergarten to when I graduated I was always subject to violence and bullying.  My parents knew of the bullying as well as the  teachers and principles. My mother just kept telling me that if I didn't just act the way I did the other kids would leave me be. My father took a different stance, he thought I should learn to stand up for myself so his approach was either you fight back or I will beat you myself.   It took me a very long time for me to change my believes about myself.  Overtime I got really good at hiding and avoiding others primarily for my own safety. In high school I had the opportunity to join NJROTC which I did because I did not want to deal with the gym locker room.        I enjoyed the experience but still wasn't sure what I wanted to do. My Junior year of high school I took a severe beating by a group of guys so I convinced my mom to let me sign up for the Navy and told the recruiter I wanted to go to Navy boot camp ASAP so I left three days after I graduated high school the next year.        I struggled in my first couple of years in the Navy.  I got better at fitting in and I made friends with a female Sailor and we started hanging out all the time eventually she introduced to me wife. The dysphoria got worse after I married and eventually I came out to her a couple years into our marriage. Eventually our marriage came apart a divorce was eminent then by the grace of God things changed  and we worked things out. At that point I was choosing the Navy; a job that I loved and was good at over authenticity, I had convinced myself that I could tolerate and live with the dysphoria. At this point my wife and I had endured four more deployments and the birth and death of our daughter.      By 2015 we had two more children  both had been diagnosed with ASD.  It was at that point that it just became extremely difficult for me to function and deal with everything on top of the dysphoria. My wife encouraged me and made arrangements for me to see a therapist, so I did and started to attend group as well.  Meeting other transgender people for the first time really changed my life because it gave me hope.       I was at 18 years in the Navy at that point and was very torn on what I wanted to do. I choose to stay Navy and endure.  I kept going to group and therapy when i could and  once the DOD changed the policy I started taking HRT.  Things never really worked out with coming out in the Navy or with medical just to many road blocks. I enjoyed being a Navy Chief so I continued on in my career.  The thing that caused me to move beyond the state of limbo was the two suicide attempts, barley surviving the second one. I held things together after that because I was so grateful just to be alive.        I retired from the Navy in 2020 and things didn't get better so I reached out to the VA for help.  They have been very helpful with the transition out of the Navy.  Along the way I stopped fighting with myself and made the decision to transition and start living full time.  For me it has made all the difference in my life.            Jamie

      Kind of. I always feel like my legs are the wrong shape, they look too feminine, they stop me from passing, they make me look like a girl, etc. Etc.

      Out of the blue I get a call. I'm retired and have to go to a business meeting. Do not know what this about, all I know is I text back and told them, I'm wearing polka dots. They said please come as you are. LM♥️  
    • AwesomeClaire
      I was never an alpha male either.  A couple things stopped me from transitioning. Mostly fear and shame. Fear of what people would do to me when they found out, and shame of failing as a man and not living up to others' expectations. Also, I had started losing my hair at some point in my 20s and then I was just like "oh, this is it then, there is no way I can do this." So, another main thing holding me back was lack of knowledge. As far as I knew, "transsexuals" were these weird people that got their stuff removed. Nobody even knew one. I didn't even know about ftm. I didn't know about good wigs even or hormone therapy. It was just me all alone, trying to figure out how to look like a girl, failing at it, and then sadly giving up. I didn't have the words or ability to express what was going on with me. I just knew I wanted to look like a girl, and for a while I tried to make myself look like the very feminine male characters from some video games, especially Dynasty Warriors. I really started experimenting more after coming out to family and some close friends as bi, I tried on a dress and heels for the first time with some friends and just loved it. But then the dark thoughts and fear started crowding in again and I felt what I was doing was ridiculous and wrong, so I quit. It would resurface many times over the years, especially if I got drunk or there was another guy around that I liked. November 2019, a year after my divorce, is when I got a very strong urge to pursue this again - I decided to do it right, I did the research, learned quite a lot, and made the decision to be the real me.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I hadn't had a Facebook account in over a decade. But, my friends in my gaming group were using Facebook groups and I felt I was missing out. A few months into my transition I had decided on Claire, so I started up an FB account. Part of this was intentional. I spent a lot of time and energy talking to my closest friends, family, and coworkers about my transition, explaining why I was doing it, my history, etc. So, rather than surprise more people and have to explain a bunch of stuff, I just put myself out there on FB and let people react as they may. I got an overwhelming amount of support, and it just felt good to get it out of the way and have everyone know about it.

      Trying this again, the worry is alway lack of acceptance but it’s never as bad as you imagine.  My wife was my worst and she has given her concerns to God.  We are doing a whole lot better.   Purses, I don’t carry all that in my purse, but I will say after carrying one, I don’t understand why the MURSE never caught on.  I wear glasses in case you hadn’t noticed so a glasses case with my prescription sun glasses, or vice versa, lipstick, hair brush, keys, phone, a compact, I try to carry tissues but use them and don’t think to replace them, a face mask, and my wallet.  It matches the purse.  My wife makes purses and matching wallets out of different materials.  The one I’ve been using is cork.  But she makes quilted, foleather, and others and she usually manages a matching wallet. Sometime my wife and I want the same one and have to share.  Ok, I give in to her most of the time but I have a couple she made specifically for me.

      While I fully understand that some of us may wish to limit who we "come out" to, I was getting frustrated that I had to work out everytime I posted on facebook who knew what. So on 31 March (transgender day of visibility) I decided to post my transgender status to all those who I had not up to that point informed.  I had feared a bit of a backlash from some of the right-wing family members who were my fb friends, but in fact all the responses I had to my post were entirely positive. One of my fb friends obviously decided to unfriend me (I had made a note of how many fb friends I had before the post), but as I've been unable to work out who that person was - it's clearly no big deal.  But the big plus is that I now know that I don't have to tiptoe around what I post in FB. I have maintained two separate FB identities as I am genderfluid, and I'll post appropriate updates in my male and female FB pages accordingly. I did however invite my male FB friends to "friend" Niamh if they wished and a significant number did.   So I fully understand your desire to not have to hide your identity from anyone - it lifts a big weight from your shoulders and I hope that going forward that your family accept how you are even if they are not supportive.
