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.

Hey, I almost forgot. Oak island is on soon. Love that show. Maybe someday they will actually find the motherload. The journey is good. Get some interesting facts and theories. Talk later Ladies.

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.

      I'm proud of you!  That is one more hurdle you can check off.  That leaves you more energy for tomorrow's goals.    I just got back from electrolysis.   My upper lip hurts.   When I try to stop transitioning,  I always hurt more.  
    • Pumela
      Thanks for the replay. Hopes and dreams. I just want him to be happy and feel loved. It’s ripping me apart seeing him like this. He is so angry dosen’t want to talk to his counseler anymore and is sick of all the dr calls.

      Well I did it. I turned it into the news paper today this morning. Lol. I’m so excited that I know that in about a month I will be Holly legally. Omg it seems like a dream.

      I have 3 seriously Christian customers that know what I am doing, -trans-.   They don't preach , they live by example.   They have always liked me and support me now.

      OMG - same is tryue here and I never remembered much about my dad and my wife notices I am remembering more in those areas - the almost continuous life of hints and clues and smacks in the sub-conscious - my sub-conscious now says .... duh .... what did you think was going on?   @claire1000 - I forgot to mention numbing the pain with pot (gave it up but it didn't help) and drinking heavy (gave it up but that didn't help either) - the only solution has been "quit denying yourself and find the resources you need." the current society acceptance and with more and more folks coming out - it is getting easier - and I can't deny the frustrations of the past and wished I lived in an era of acceptance back then - I choose to be BETTER not BITTER about the past - that was my journey and only I could go on the journey.

      There doesn't have to be a HAHA moment as I said before it was constant hints through childhood that made me feel different from other boys, and my teenage years were a nightmare as I tried the hyper masculine {playing football}way of trying to hide how I really felt which in the sixties would have been looked on with disdain or even thought to be a mental illness. When I was sixteen or so I found a copy of DR Harrry Bengamin's The Transexual Phenomenon  when I read it I cried thinking there was a solution but cried realizing that the chances of me being able to do this was slim and none. Forty  plus years of frustration, and 20 years of drinking alcoholiclly left me little hope for real happiness. What happened when I started HRT wasn't any physical change{they were relatively slow} but just the general feeling of well being of feeling this must be what being a female is, not sure if it was the estrogen finally in me, or the Knowledge that I was on my way but it was if I was walking on a type of cloud nine that the weight of the male world was finally beginning to lift that for me was my HAHA moment.
    • Shay
      I gave up hiding - after 50 years of depression, anxiety , panic attacks, anorexia, multiple therapists and gray market self-HRT - I finally said I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I TRY SUPERVISED HRT AND A GOOD GENDER THERAPIST. And that is what I did - I knew I was trans but denied it all my life asnd the previous therapist knew depression and anxiety but never went to gender dysphoria even when I was caught by my wife using gray market HRT.

      Sounds awesome Myles97  Post a pic if you want but if you choose not to thats OK too. How the clothes make you feel is the important thing. Went out yesterday looking for a few clothing items and didn't find anything I was looking for but it was nice getting out .

      While I do look at a certain chain of events, really I find that I am still constantly processing it all.  As time goes by I remember more things in my past.  Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had made different choices.  But there's no point in that, since the past is past. And I wonder how much do I break from my past?  How much is just a continuing story?   Sometimes I feel as if I'm still in a holding pattern.  I suspect the covid pandemic has something to do with that. I'm not young, but I don't know where to go from here - it probably won't be far, LOL. Guess I'm just rambling now.
    • Linda Marie
      No turning back. All the dreams come out, now you can't turn back. Now you are face to face with yourself, you think to yourself, what have I done. Where do I go from here?   My no turning back was when I came out. What was yours?  
    • Linda Marie
      Well, when did I know I was in DEEP.... When my sister moved out, she left a lot of clothes. I hit the gold mine! Dresses, panties, hose, the whole nine yards, That is when I knew, I was in DEEP.  
    • Linda Marie
      Gosh, when did I realize I was in deep. Was it the time I dressed upped in my sisters clothes? We shared a bed room back then. Or was it when all I could of think was, I want to wear what's she's wearing?   What woke you up to that  Deep inner person you are today? I gave my hints up there ♥️

      Hi all! My name is Dee Jolly and I'm a nonbinary researcher at Boston Children's Hospital's Center for Gender Surgery. We're doing an interview study to understand transfeminine people's experiences with needing to discontinue their gender-affirming hormones (particularly estrogen) before a planned surgery and wanted to pass along our information. We are interested in understanding both what it's physically and emotionally like as well as how information is communicated about this process.   We are asking people to participate in a 45-60 minute 1-on-1 interview over Zoom with a member of the research team. People can be located anywhere in the United States or Canada to participate. The audio will be recorded. Participants will only be identified by a pseudonym of their choice to protect anonymity.   To participate, people must be: - Aged 18 years or older - Have been asked to discontinue their gender-affirming hormones (i.e., estrogen) before a planned surgery at a time when they were taking estrogen for a minimum of 12 continuous months (Surgery does not need to be gender-related). - Able to reliably access the internet - Comfortable with having audio recorded (for research purposes only).   For more info and next steps, please email [email protected] or visit cgsresearch.org/estrogen

      So to finish my dream and outcomes, I hope my story helps those just starting or thinking about coming out. Electrolysis came next, then the meetings, sometimes my wife would take me and read outside, she even baked cake for our meetings. I went through counseling and approved for srs, one thing was in the way...me. I still had obligations to the family. What do I do now? I called HR and my union reps, sent them pictures of me as Linda Yeah that was a rough one. But I had to protect my job. Being a federal employee also helped. We were protected!!!! This is stuff I never DREAMED I would go through.  So now I'm set so what's next. HRT, yes, and approved, also approved for breast implants.  Then I wake up. Why at my age should I go any farther? I have it all as it is, I'm outed to all and free to me at any given time.   As far as the HRT, my doctor who knows all about my lifestyle recommend I not start HRT at my age but he referred  me a plastic surgeon for breast implants, gosh  that was a bright day at the doctor's office. ( will I have them?)  I'm leaning that way. ♥️    
    • Linda Marie
      By now I'm very well known on the circuit and home life has settled. Still the fear in my wife's eyes when I went out.  I had been noticing this for a while now and finally asked her, and she blind sided me again. She told me she was scared I would not come back home, she said, and believe this...I'm scared the -transgender- circus will take you away from me. The -transgender- Circus...never heard that one before she had said it. I had a good laugh, and we both laughed. waking up from a dream I stated calling her every chance I had while I was out as Linda. I mean at least 3 times a night. I kept her up dated, Then.....electrolysis...the the meetings, counseling, ext. And finally where we are at today.  We have been married 45 years now, rain or shine♥️
