Recommended Posts

So happy to hear @KymmieL! I'm joining in your happy dance and I hope your journey on E brings you much joy.

 

@Willow I'm happy to hear you and your wife had a positive conversation! I agree, the more my partner and I talk things through, the closer our relationship feels.

 

@CD Rachel I'm so sorry to read this. I hope you and your wife can talk through your feelings together. Stay strong, I'm sending positive energy your way!

 

Today was a pretty good day, all things considered. A lot of positive conversations at work with clients. One of them told me I had a very reassuring phone voice. So I asked her what it was she liked about my voice - she said she liked how I spoke quietly and like a "soft melody" in her words (I'm not out to any clients). I have been working on my speaking voice but this was so uplifting to hear! In other news, I was disappointed to have to send the skirt suit I recently ordered back because the jacket didn't fit right at all. Also rescheduled my next electrolysis appointment to heal more from the last one (I mentioned that in another thread). Tonight I'm looking forward to a quiet evening, I have so many shows in my streaming video queues that I may never see the end of it!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

With the Estradot, each patch is about 1" x 3/4".

That may have been the brand I used a few years ago. I was guesstimating the size of my patches from back then but this sound like the same patch I once used. I will request that brand next refill unless Kymmie’s patches are smaller in size. If anyone else is using patches and they are smaller than my current 2” x 2” circles, I would love to hear from you. I was taking E caps and I sort of enjoy the freedom now of not having to take multiple daily pills....at least for now. I think my PCP like me on patches too due to my age.

 

Thanks @Jackie C. and @KathyLauren!

Congrats.  Hope to get all you want from them.  Start ordering the batch super early so you won't be delayed.

@Susan R I'm on Climara brand patches and the smallest one was tiny.  Once I started with the larger sizes in multiples I use tape to protect them from pealing off by my underwear rubbing.  I use this product that I buy on Amazon.  I just cut to length and round off the edges.   it works really well and a roll lasts a long time.

Thanks, Bri. I hope to get the same experience. Will be going for piercings end of nxt week.

 

Well Kiara, I think most of us would gladly take a little extra boobage. I read cardio exercise shrinks fat from breasts. Good luck.

 

Rachael, I'm sorry to hear about your marriage. I can't even imagine how you feel. I shudder to think of it. Hang in there. You ARE worth it.

 

YAY Kimmie !!! Congrats.

Thank you all for the kind words of encouragement. While I haven't officially measured it. but it is about 3/4 x 1 1/2.

 

There is defiantly something my wife has on her mind. Lately she jumps down my throat for no reason. Tonight she just looked POed about something of course asking what is wrong gets me the standard answer,nothing.

 

OH, Well. Ce le ve .

 

I got my E finally. Still happy girl. @Mmindygotta be a dress raising spin.

OH, well. I just got an email that the Cat dealer has moved on and I was not selected. I think the evidence specialist is also a no go. I am still on the search.

I appreciate this, Jani, This is the waterproof cover you place over the top of your patches I assume as you’ve obviously had it on during a shower. This would seem to be a much less expensive way to cover my patches if this is the case.

Thanks Kymmie, That seems to be about the smallest size out there in an E patch.

 

Thanks for sharing this info ladies,

Good Morning! I had enough hours in at work to take today off. Slept in a little later than usual. Coffee is wonderful.

 

It is so exciting to hear about all of you on HRT. It's a step that I can't take right now. I am happy for everyone!

 

Have a wonderful day!

This is sleeping in? What is it: 4am in IL? lol

I slept in as well because the wind chill is 10 degrees so the morning dog walk was a no go and my wife knows to let me sleep. She just took her out to pee and back in. Our dog is a chihuahua/pug mix so her cold tolerance is about the same as mine.  She ran back upstairs to snuggle back in bed with me. Of course, cold paws on me don't facilitate a continued deep sleep.  haha

Still, I refused to get out from the warm covers for another 30 minutes.

Then my amazing wife brought me my first cup of coffee to me in bed so.....more warm covers time. I love lazy starts to the day.

I will have to venture forth momentarily though, the rest of the coffee is downstairs. sigh....

On a work day I wake at 3am, so 4am is nice treat for me! All my life, I have been a morning person. Yes, I know that is sounds strange, but I am different in many ways!

No, it's 5 just feels like 4am.

 

@AudreySorry to hear the outfit didn't fit right. It's usually the shoulders and arm that cause me issues.

 

I was feeling overly emotional yesterday. My E dosage was changed a couple months ago so I suspect it's finally catching up to me. Makes me wonder if that also means my transition timeline now has a "new" starting point. I would be very happy to have more changes. Despite what people tell me, my mirror says I haven't changed that much. That feels like a double sided statement......

(Sorry I don't have time finish this thought,  need to get ready for work.)

    Well I got some good news thought I'd share this AM. Been off from my PT delivery job since last Friday due excessive rain & cold here in Georgia but also discovered, via a missed email dated Jan 11th, that I'm off Dr Powers' wait-list and can make a first appointment as soon as my Humana insure card arrives, having just signed up on Tues.

 

     Not only did I get an Advantage PPO for FREE but am getting a monthly $50 rebate off my $148 SS A/B deduction as well! Go Figure since when are insurance companys ever really helpful, forgiving or nice?

 

    Wee shall see! Dr Powers also requires an annual cash $300 "out-of-state fee" which can pay via paypal and while listed "in-network" he's "specialty" too so will see what THAT means . . lol have found bonus cash to play with? 

 

     Daughter and kids moved OUT this week, just around the corner, am upset 'bout that too as her and her mother (my "ex") were butting heads constantly so hopefully just temporary . .

 

Workin' on the "ex going next"?

Good morning 

 

sipping my coffee and catching up.  
 

we went from our warmest day thus far in 21 to the coldest in January record in two days.  Not nice Mother Nature.  Lots of patch’s and dancing going on.  It’s my injection day today.  I wasn’t as depressed yesterday so things must be leveling out.

 

 Back later.

Kiera, That's awesome news. I also have Humana choice advantage. Like you, I just found an "in network" LGBTQ qualified specialist. It took a lot of searching. Humana's search engine is worthless for people like us. They changed my primary care physician to Dr. Adam Houghton right on the phone. I've found Humana people to be very nice on the phone. Specialist means higher copay. Hopefully better care also. I can call for my first appointment on Feb. 3rd. They are sending me a new card with his name on it. 

Hey did you know your plan comes with "Silver Sneakers" ?  I belong to 2 gyms for free with this. If not sure if you are eligible for this, go to Silver Sneakers website and type in your name and it will tell you. You will have to sign up to get a number that you give to gym. 

 

Best of luck. Jamie

23 this morning, which is a bit chilly for us.    Fortunately I got a load of firewood yesterday, so it’s coffee by the wood stove for me.  I should cut back on the cherry turnovers though.    They’re making me fat.  
It is sunny though, which helps fight depression.
  I’ll need to go to the laundromat today since I’m about out of clean undies.   It’s a good chance to catch up on some reading.  

Hope everyone has a good day.

I wish I had known about this when I was still on the birth control patch! I had so many time where I'd have to worry about it peeling off. This would have been so helpful!

I had a big chest before I gained all the weight and I now I have entirely too much. I really need to get back out there and get rid of the rest of this extra weight already. I really wish it would warm up a bit so I could start walking again at least.

 

 

My anxiety has me feeling so scattered right now that it's hard to focus. I've been trying to keep up with all the posts, but it's been very difficult lately. I have my interview later this morning so once that's done it's one thing off my plate, but last night we discovered that we have mice in the kitchen. I ended up spending my night gutting cabinets and scrubbing everything down and just generally being angry about the whole thing. We live on the second floor and we keep everything fairly clean so it's just that much more frustrating that they made it this far. I was so exhausted by the end of the night that I couldn't even work on getting ready for my interview this morning.

It's wonderful to hear so many of you are on HRT. I didn't know the patches came in so many shapes and sizes! I really love hearing all your positive news. It's those little things that give me hope for the future. I'll just be here, lurking in the background, cheering everyone on.

Jandi, I love the smell of a wood fireplace. Sitting with a warm cup of liquid and staring into the fire is like going to heaven. Someday I hope to have one. Right now I have to dream. 

Have a great day.

Yes.  it is waterproof.  I use it primarily because it seems as I move my clothing will rub just enough to curl the edges and peeling them off.  This stops this from happening.   They stay attached well.

Jani, That is exactly what I am looking for. The peeled up edges of the exposed part of the patch are where the water gets in when the waterproof bandaid is slightly too small. I’m ordering a roll today.

 

Thank You,

Susan R🌷

@Jani I was going to add... This tape you recommended looks very similar to the material used to cover my small scars under my arms where they inserted my breast implants. That stuff was great! It was like a second skin it stuck to well.

Link to post

@Willow You should know that mother nature is a pure B-tch. '

 

Jandi, Just the thought of coffee by the wood stove makes me smile. I agree it would be heaven.

 

With the help of my bipap I was able to sleep in. Not much as the wife wants me to fix her cars door.  Then the youngest wants me to go with him to the body shop to get an estimate.

 

Take care all. Of course I shall return.

      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?

      Holly that top certainly does push the PG label.  A bit close to X.     I once dressed a bit over the top.  After all i had somehow noticed the women with short skirts  and low tops more than the "plain" ones.  It was also fun at first to excite that glance from men.  Time has lengthened my skirts and yet somehow i feel just as feminine even in dirty jeans and top working the farm.    We all have our styles which makes the world go round.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sounds like it may be loosely based around DBT but maybe not as in  depth.

      😉 lol I am very well liked at work but, problem is, son works there as well and doesn't like talking 'bout "my issue".   Big rigs? Used to drive a '78 "extended hood" KW aerodyne  with a "3408" when cabovers were the standard (55/60' length laws)
    • ValerieRun
      I have a similar style top, also sleeveless but a bit wider should straps, and while it’s on a hanger it does look a bit “adventurous”.  But when I wear it it flows perfectly over the contours of the bra (bra cups needs to be separate enough though). Of course, when you bend over it will hang down and show the bra but it’s inevitable. And you will be tempted to adjust it to a perfect position all the time 🙂 But it is absolutely lovely once you get used to it.

      Had an unusual comment from my youngest son. We had gone out for our Friday night dinner out. Our son met us at the restaurant. While we were eating. He comments nice color finger nails. It wasn't a sarcastic comment either.   Kymmie

      I used Faceapp for a bit of fun and this was the result.   But honestly, I think I prefer my profile picture which is all me, with just a little photomagic makeup.

      Yea, all my friends now do have big hearts, and I know they care about me. Just like I care about them. Its just hard to look at these woman some days. Knowing ill never be as good looking as them. They do say I look good, and am beautiful, but I wonder if they really mean it or are saying it because they are my friends. I'm hoping its because I really am beautiful. Its not like we are in competition with eachother over men, and they know im not in to men.

      Wow Lus You are going back a bit. I would love a picture of that I havent seen one of those in ages. Many years ago I had an Avenger with GT badges stuck on it. It wasnt a GT in any sense of the word. Drop me a picture when you have time. I was actually always brought up with Fords. My old dad had numourous Mk1 Cortinas. My only real dip in the ford ocean was a Mk1 facelift Capri. The first ever car that I brought with my own money. Im so showing my age now lol. Im glad i dont look it   Anyway. Back on topic.   Simply Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  If you use the above as a guide. I think Citreons are an abormination to my eyes. But others love them.  You cant please all of the people all of the time. But why would you want to? Its an old rule of thumb. But I always go for how big a persons heart is. Looks are just skin deep.

      For me I was sick of living everyone else's life that they had planned for me, and me being miserable among many things.    Covid happening was my start of my transition, and I didn't know it at the time, but I got to spend more time as my self. I was still working, but now I wasn't seeing my soon to be ex any more. Once the locks downs were lifted. I was going out, and enjoying my life for the first time, and made friends. With people that supported me.    As for losing things. I had nothing to lose. No kids, no wife, a dead end job. Yes I know i have had easy, but im a lot happier now. 
    • Red_Lauren.
      ,  I did think about wearing a tank or cami under it. I will show my boss a picture of it first, and see what she says.    I think I'm scared to wear it for a few reasons. One as munch as I love my chest, and show a bit of cleavage once and a while. I'm not sure im comfortable  showing that munch yet. Two people thinking it's not age appropriate. While I think its age appropriate for me at 35. Younger or older woman might not. Three being called slurs I can't say here. 
    • VickySGV
      Wear it but have a camisole in your purse or lunch bag to put under it if needed.  Then ask your boss what they think.  For ladies retail though I would think it was appropriate.
