Yes I want a B as well.  But I’m barely moving at this point.  When I take my measurements and look at a size chart I am a D. Ha hai couldn't fill an A

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.

@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.

      Enigma went away after that cup of tea.   I switched to something a little something old and a bit more up beat.  I like finding odd old songs I have pushed back and forgotten until my female brain has gone digging.   What are good 60's  70's songs that are somewhat lost and hardly ever played?

      I checked in to my room and wasting time before my last laser treatment, hope to see someone tonight hanging out at the clubs.

      Self-doubt is very common.  My impression from seeing lots of introductory posts over the years is that doubting yourself is more common than being 100% sure from the beginning.  Like you say, though, it is okay.  It doesn't mean that you are not trans.  It just means you need to think about it some more.  Nothing wrong with that.   My self-doubt was sufficient to keep me from even thinking about being trans for 60 years.  Any time the thought came up, I'd smack it down right quick.  And yet here I am today.  The fact that the thought kept coming up anyway was what got me through the doubt.  Something I realized eventually was that, if I keep asking myself the same question over and over again ("Am I trans?"), it probably means that I keep coming up with the wrong answer.  Once I switched my answer from "Hell, no!" to "Yes", I stopped asking the question.   I don't recommend leaving the question hanging as long as I did.  If resolution of the doubt is not coming, it would make sense to talk to a therapist about it.
    • Jackie C.
      This is a very valid point. I mean if you're in the public eye, you want to appear as confident as you can be. Detractors will tear you to pieces over the smallest signs of weakness. I think self-doubt is more common than that though. Maybe not in people who were confident enough to post their stories on YouTube, but for the rest of us?   Take me for example. There were signs. So many signs. There wasn't any education though so I just assumed that everybody felt like I did. A totally unscientific timeline might look like: 3 yrs. - Started turning underwear around to look like a girl from the front. (Spontaneous invention of tucking?) 4 yrs. - Playing in mother and grandmother's closet and trying things on. Quickly reprimanded and beaten. 5 yrs. - Preferred playing "house" with the girls to anything the boys were doing. Building toys were an acceptable substitute, coloring was good. Cars were right out. Teased by the boys. 8 yrs. - Realizing it was possible to hide dressing in mother's clothes considering she never accessed one of her dressers. The one conveniently kept in my bedroom. Score! 12 yrs. - "Oh no. My D&D character has inadvertently put on the belt of gender bending (a real item in 1st edition). Whatever will I do?" Wow. How do I keep finding those? What a crazy, random circumstance. 13 yrs. - Back to mom's clothes, but it's more for bra stuffing as puberty has started to kick in and I like wearing the stuffed bra when my parents aren't home. They aren't home a lot. No idea that trans is even a THING past the occasional "joke" in the men's magazines one of the neighborhood boys keeps bringing around. 15 yrs. - REALLY into girls. "Wouldn't it be amazing to be a girl?" Every boy must feel like that right? I mean girls are so amazing. Why would anybody want to be a boy? Have to keep it quiet though. You wouldn't want anybody to think you were gay. (Hey, it was 1985 in the Midwest.) 16 yrs. - Well of COURSE I play female characters in the arcade. They have smaller hit boxes. 19 yrs. - Well of COURSE I play female characters on the computer. Who WOULDN'T want to watch a girl butt for 100 hours? Paired with, "Of COURSE I play female characters in RPGs. Why wouldn't I make the girl of my dreams?" 25ish to 48 yrs. - Become a miserable bastard. Continue game behavior, but don't think anything of it. Everybody feels like this all the time, right? 30 yrs. - Discover your best friend since Junior High is bigender. 48 yrs. - Goes full femme while wife is out of town. Gender euphoria is like mainlining pure love. Egg cracks. Well damn. I'm transgender. I mean seriously, there's a ton of self-doubt in there (self-loathing too). I think a lot of it is rooted in lack of education. I mean I didn't know trans was even a thing until I was out of high school and it was always represented as some kind of terrible perversion. Lots of internalized transphobia from the society at the time (and one of my parents). It's basically why I talk to my therapist once a week instead of seeing my parents.   Hugs!

      Hey folks! I am still early on in my transitioning journey, but one thing I have already noticed is the lack of discussion (not here per se) on self doubt! I have quite a few friends who are also trans men, and follow several trans folks on all social media’s. One common thing I notice is that they all say they have always been 100% sure of their gender identity. While this is great and exciting, I think it can be harmful to other trans folks who struggle with self doubt. I personally have been struggling, thinking “well if I am having any self doubt at all I must not be trans because so-and-so said they knew 100% since they were 4.” Or whatever. Yes those people exist, and their journeys are entirely valid! But there are also folks who struggle with self doubt. And who question. And I am slowly learning (thanks to many of you) THAT IS OKAY!!! It is likely that your brain was developed in a cis-het society/family that has consistently pushed forward those ideas and beliefs. Of course when you finally start to realize that you may be trans, it’s going to feel foreign! It’s going to feel unacceptable or impossible. That is natural. And even after you accept it for yourself, you will likely still have doubts!! A life time of being told one thing and then experiencing another will do that to you. You are still valid. You are still whatever gender identity makes you happy. You are not any less because of self doubt. I do not think that self doubt is always indicative of a “mistake” or a sign that you should not transition. It’s okay to be nervous and to have questions about making such a huge change. It’s normal. It’s also okay to explore your gender and decide that you are cis, or that you are a different identity than what you initially thought. It’s okay to have self doubt and still identify as trans! Self doubt does not mean you aren’t who you thought you were, it just means you are still adjusting. Do not draw boxes so tight around yourself that you cannot breathe. I would greatly appreciate any folks who could comment on here and talk about self-doubt you have experienced and how you have navigated it. I hope this post helps other people, but I think I needed to write it just as much for myself as for others. Thanks for always being my space to exist. - Myles.

      Nothing wrong with using colors you like to build on your look. Like I said, my personal style is more subtle. Maybe a little blush and some eyeliner.   Then again, I'm training to be a health-care provider so my makeup is kind of mandated to be "Light and fresh." Seriously, it's mandated in the ethics guidelines.     All you have to do is ask. Aside from the occasional problem with the software (we had a weird one a little while back) the staff is more than happy to make edits for you.   Hugs!
