I had no idea exactly what she needed so I face-timed her, now who's embarrassed?

No need be embarrassed, if you don't have kids, or it's been a long time since your kids were babies. You can't go wrong with buying the perishable items that every baby goes through. Wet wipes, disposable diapers, baby lotions, bath wraps, and the like. Then cute little onesies with you favorite unicorns and rainbows on them. Toys will come later, and if you're not having kids, then you get them the noisiest ones they can operate. 

 

Have fun with it,

Ahhh  Hun.  Arthritis sucks, I know.  Hang in there.

Thank you Kimmie,

 

I'm learning to deal with it, now I'm understanding why people retire at this age. There is no way I could meet a production timetable as a full time mechanic anymore.

Women might like inviting us to their showers and such cause we aren't jaded veterans of such events, we'd actually be enthusiastic attendees!

 

The first baby shower I was ever invited to was for the lesbian couple next door, who were expecting their first baby.  Who'd have thunk a few years ago that this conservative, rednecky fishing village would see a baby shower with a trans-lesbian/lesbian-by-marriage couple as guests and a lesbian couple as the stars?  Everyone who was anyone was there (the women, anyway), and it was a lot of fun.

 

I might need an extra coffee this morning.  The rain we were supposed to get overnight came down as heavy, wet snow. :(

I’m only 33 and I’m already thinking of ways to stop being a mechanic. I just don’t want to be 60 still turning a wrench, especially on heavy equipment. I’ve already noticed that I don’t even attempt some of the things I did in my early 20s or maybe I might be a little smarter now haha.

 

I managed to get a few hours of sleep no I’m up getting ready to go and getting laundry taken care of. Before my surgery.The truck is clean and ready to go. Well I had to borrow a truck because I have mine torn apart and my friend who is going to drive me couldn’t use hers because her husband needed to pick the kids up later, because like me his truck is a regular cab. So I had to borrow one lol. Very rarely do I need a car because I’m always in a company truck. Maybe this is a sign to get motivated and put my truck back together.

All this talk of D&D and RPGs has gotten me all riled up.

 

It has been a very long time since I have played. Inmy youth in the early 80s there were a lot of time spent in my friends basement playing various campaigns. My favorite was always the G1-3 Giant series that led to the D1-D3 Drow series and yep into the Q series. And I would be remise if I did not mention The tomb of Horrors!

 

We also played a game called Gamma world that was a post apocalyptic scenario and Traveler that was a futuristic space setting.

 

I went ahead last night and down loaded the Dragon Age Origins.  My Daughter had played the whole series and recommended it. So far so good. It is not as good as a room full of gaming friends but since I have been short of friends this will do for now.

 

@ElizabethStar That is so nice getting invited to a baby shower! I would be so excited. That is just so affirming and accepting I would probably be in tears. Have fun and enjoy it.

Hope you heal quickly Emily.  When i had mine i was certainly uncomfortable for a few days but the level of pain wasn't bad.  Maybe the hardest part of recovery was not being supposed to lift anything over 8 lbs.  A gallon of milk!  I was difficult to be a good kid as i moved around the farm but following the instructions to the best of my ability helped me heal.

Just a reminder........  The various threads we have here at Trans Pulse help organize and help others as they navigate their lives as non cis gendered folks.  If we discuss everything in this social thread it may well loose that ability to help folks in the future.  Chatting is lovely but please consider whether your post might be better placed in an individual forum rather than being added to a social thread.

Honestly, I am very excited but I have idea what to expect. Like so many other girly things I refused to learn and avoid them because it may have caused me to question my identity before I was ready. I know there are guy that goto events likes this and don't think twice about who they are. Maybe hyper-avoidance? And yet when my wife asked me to goto the store to get something from "that aisle" I was OK with. Of course I had no idea exactly what she needed so I face-timed her, now who's embarrassed?

 

It's a party! There will be gifts and games. The games will likely be home-making themed and stupid. It won't matter because you'll be playing them with friends. It's a celebration. Go celebrate!

Yup yup. I played Gamma World as my introduction to post-apocalyptic mutant fun. I've got several iterations of that too. You're missing a spot on the story progression for those old modules though. They started with the A series A1-A4 Against the Slavers, then G1-3 (though 1 was kind of short, they were bundled for the reprint), then D and Q.

You can not mention the Tomb of Horrors. That thing was a meatgrinder.

 

They've reprinted the Gs and Tomb of Horrors for 5e though. They're bundled in a hardback with some other classics. Goodman Games reprinted a lot of them too. I met Goodman at a convention, nice guy.

 

I played Star Frontiers instead of Traveler though. Later Star Trek. It's hard to find a good SF game, but I have a writing credit in Myriad Song. Under my dead name sadly. I got to make one of the alien species.

 

Dragon Age: Origins is pretty good, but I'm not a fan of the team-based fantasy game. You might try Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Highly underrated game and a ton of fun. Skyrim is more popular, but I think Amalur might be the better game.

 

Of course neither one is as much fun as getting together with a group of friends and a DM. I miss meeting in person, but tonight is my game night. Once more into the breach!

Yesterday was a rollercoaster. I officially came out to the rest of my household. It went well. I was pretty sure they already knew. I was right, but I needed to make sure. No one will be a problem, but no one wants to discuss it. That's alright. My wife got real upset with me telling them though. Says I'm pushing things too fast. We had words, then she told me I'm not "transgender". It was like being stabbed in my soul. I had to go to the garage for a while to be alone to get over it. It was all I could do to keep from harming myself. After a bunch of crying, I went back in and we talked, made up and cried together for about an hour. All good now.

 

I was accepted as a new patient by a transwoman therapist who is in network for my insurance. Have an appointment in about a week. I'm so excited. Have a lot I need help for.

Really? My wife and I swap jewelry all the time. The only pieces that are off-limits are ones I specifically gave her for one reason or another. Otherwise I have carte-blanche to raid her jewelry box and vice-versa.

It would be more awesome if we were the same color palate. 😉 She's more of a autumn, where I'm more of a winter. A lot of color combinations that work for her don't work on me and vice-versa. Tragic, but we do what we can. For example, yellow gold looks like garbage against my skin but looks fine on her. I'm more into silvers and blues.

 

What can you do?

I haven't been on much lately. It's hard to explain and I doubt anyone really wants to listen to me complaining. I am so happy to see so many of you moving forward and feeling better as your true selves. I imagine this is part of my avoidance. I am not having such great luck and really just want to give up on myself more than anything. I hope things get better some day.

      @LusciousTheLock while I never have been into the BDSM or kinky as you describe it (possibly due to the abuse suffered growing up), I did enjoy the story as you told it. As I kept reading I thought to myself that you having to restrain your wife so you could tell her that you were trans for your safety and her safety was interesting. I can only picture her as someone that is fairly strong as a woman, and that is not someone that I have seen in a very long time. My adopted mom was very strong, not that she looked it. I am glad that you are still married after three years of your transition, but to me if your wife has issues to the point of not even wanting to get undressed in front of you; how supportive is she really? Not trying to start anything, just asking your opinion on that because you posted it.  Respectfully,  Gina
    • gina-nicole-t
      @SheenaT my ex-fiance did the same thing to me that your wife is doing to you now. This is why she is blocked from calling me now. I tried explaining everything to her over and over again. I even told her I would put off GCS for her, then she decided at the 11th hour she didn't want me to transition at all. I told her that was not her choice since we are not together, and now are not going to be together since you can't be any kind of supportive. Obviously you are a grown person that has her own mind, and can make her own choices, however if your wife can't support you maybe it's time to move on. You can try to educate her, but if she continues to make derogatory comments about transgender people there comes a time to make a choice to stay in a toxic relationship, or move on for your safety and mental wellbeing.  Respectfully,  Gina

      I'm a pessimist of sorts. What that prompts me to do though is to have a contingency plan so if things go sideways I can go to the backup plan. Hope for the best. Plan for the worst.   Diving into transition was different. Basically it was, "Any result would be better than now."   Same with my GCS honestly: "No matter what the result, my dysphoria monster will shut up."   Fallback plans just come up in everyday life. "Well, I can't do X, but there's still Y. If Y falls through, there's always Z." I find it better than my female birth-parent's strategy of, "If I can't do X, then give up and go home." She was a "joy" to deal with.   Hugs!

      I am (sarcastically) shocked... shocked I tell you... that someone would misquote the Bible to further a hateful agenda. 🙄   Jesus was all about love and acceptance. No hate. Love thy neighbor, all that stuff. It's like they never read their own book.   Hugs!

      Yes.   However, as my endo kept saying, the changes are completely reversible. You can afford to dip your toe in for a bit before you commit.   Hugs!

      I looked it up and found that this was likely the part they mis-quoted and proceeded to embellish:   "For you formed my inward parts;     you knitted me together in my mother's womb."   There is no mention of gender.   Here is the whole: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=psalm 139&version=ESV   Tracy

      Here's a tale to tell. No not the SS Minnow but Robins night out. Robins first night out to be correct.   Started okay. Until I tried my partners antifrizz spray. Instant flat hair. Cue instant panic with 6 hours until going out. Emergency call to my hairdresser who was also doing my makeup to beg her to fix my disaster. With 2-1/2 hours to go. The lady is a saint, she calmed me down and redid my hair, applied my makeup and still had time to get ready herself. I'd already planned my outfit a month before and I'm so glad I did as I had all of 10minutes to get dressed ... 😬 So with that mini disaster sorted out it was an 45min drive into town (Australia you get used to driving anywhere). With every tourist and slow driver I could feel my stress going up a notch at a time. It's quite interesting how you think time is going so fast and you are going to be so late. AND I still had to find somewhere to park !. We made it to the pub/hotel/concert venue exactly at the time I had planned for 🙄 how does that happen, even walking from the multi-level car park to the venue. So we got to have a leisurely dinner.   Now the fun stuff. I haven't walked that far in high heels (in this case ankle boots) ever. It was easy, huh, why ? Cycling really does give you good legs for tippy toeing along. Okay exaggeration they arent that high. (My toes hurt a bit today though) My partner and I had to go past two other pubs/clubs before we got to our venue and nothing, no abuse, no comments, they couldnt have cared less. Mmmmm. So there I am standing in a hotel/pub dressed as Robin, makeup and hair great and just happy. No fear, no stress, just normal night out. Maybe because I was me for the first time in .... first time ever I guess. No-one recognised me, I was a new woman who had come along to the gig. Women asked about my nails (they loved the colour), one woman said I had great legs for tight jeans she just wished she did; a compliment !? They smiled I smiled, went to the ladies, checked my lippy and makeup and that was that. Nothing horrible happened. Did spot out the corner of my eye a couple of the blokes checking my bottom and legs, how do I know 😜 it was the same way I looked .. lol  it was kinda cool, I didn't wear these jeans for people to not see my legs ... hee hee. But again nothing horrible happened during dinner or the concert, or afterward walking back to the car park. i did get one interesting look from the lass serving drinks; not sure what the look meant, though I do know she is lesbian.   I had been getting wound up about the night and getting ready, and continually telling myself no-one will care, be natural and no-one will take any notice of you. And that really is what happened, my friends who met Robin for the first time were wonderful and it was a fantastic night with great music and company. I can't wait to go out again 😊   A big thank you to everyone on TP who gave me advice and shared their stories, it was like having a big family looking after me. ❤️   Hugs Robin

      My view is that to look to failure is often to achieve it. If I was too pessamistic I would never have reason to start my projects and, looking back, I have seen that many have turned out rather well. I usually find though that a balanced view is the good option.   Tracy

      As @VickySGV Women come in many shapes and sizes.   Personally before i had any work done I was always concerned about my hips and how they didnt match the perfect female body. The concerns were my shoulders were always going to be wider than hips. They still are even after all the hormones and work. However. Take a look around you! Granted some born women do have hips that are wider than there shoulders. But theres also many who are in much the same position as me or you. Watching some of the more elite athletes you will see that most if not all have a body shape much the same as mine or yours. Therefore the shape of yourself is not defined as predominatly female or predominatly male. Its your shape. so love it and work with it. of course you can always give the illusion of hips and shoulders being in proportion with a waist trainer or corset. But I wouldnt recomend them to vigorously. Especially if your just starting out. They can be very uncomftable and tight lacing a corset straight off the bat is just silly and dangerous.   I have seen some women who were born into it and have a body a man would be proud of. But they are women. You can tell by the way they conduct there movements and posture and voice. I doubt if anyone would question there gender.   So dont be disheartened. Own what you have and learn to love it.     I would agree with you @MiraM regarding makeup. Some good points their. Its what suits the individual best and there personal tones. Makeup can be a strange world. But its a matter of finding what works for you by doing your homework.

      Awww!!! This is so raw and tender! ❤️   I'm sorry for the difficulties involved, but I'm glad that it sounds to be an overall positive outcome. Coming out can be a wild ride, no matter what the nature of the relationship. And the closer, the wilder!
    • Heather Nicole
      Huge congrats on taking this step, Holly!!! 🎉🎉🎉   I'll admit I have very little experience with this particular process (yet!), although I have looked into it for gender-unrelated reasons. FWIW, My impression is that name changes tend to be so routine (ex: marriage, dissociating from a bad father, forcing a preferred nickname like "Bob" instead of "Robert", etc...) that the whole judge thing is usually more of a formality. My (novice?) understanding is they mainly just want to prevent anyone from trying to make cheap, obvious attempts at dodging debts or warrants. If you're even bothering to apply to change your name from a masculine one to a feminine one, well, chances are you're a legit transgender person, because, well, how often do cis people try to put in an application like that?   And if you're still concerned, then consider this...   A certain cisgendered man, named Vincent Furnier, legally changed his first name to "Alice" all the way back in the 1970's (Just think how LGBT+ was perceived way back then). His new last name? "Cooper". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Cooper   I absolutely understand your worry and apprehension. But girl, for what it's worth, I don't think you have need to worry. FWIW, I personally think a "no" is highly unlikely, and on the super-off-chance it were to occur, I have a hard time imagining that an appeal wouldn't overturn it.   Girl, You've got this! 💖     I love this story! 😄
