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.

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.

      If I remember correctly, I was told trying to diet in a manner where you lose ten pounds then gain ten pounds then lose ten pounds again will help fat redistribution occur much more quickly; been meaning to try this out.

      Something similar happened to me, same ages. I feel the same way, almost all the time. I understand how rough it is. Luckily, I was able to get away from him about a year ago, but what he did still haunts me. I hate it so much.
