Personally I like the starfish.  I hate jellyfish season.  Baby sea turtle hatchlings are really cute.

That's really cool @Bri2020.  You seem to have really put yourself out there, and get rewarded for doing so.  Have fun with the other football girls!

Good morning everyone. On third day of HRT. Nipples are tender today, don't notice anything else different. Hydrating, and peeing is no different than normal.

 

I went to Cannon beach, Oregon once and saw hundreds of star fish and a couple crabs. I agree, they're cute.

 

Kymmie, I'm so sorry to hear you're hurting. I hope you're doing better. There is no greater pain than the ones we love hurting us. Hang in there, it'll get better.

Having some green tea instead is coffee this morning. I still wanted caffeine but I didn't want to drink coffee too often, so this seemed a reasonable compromise. 😆

 

I realized the other day at work that I was subconsciously slumping forward at the shoulders. When I pulled my clavicles in and and straighted out my developing breasts were noticeable, if not glaringly so, through my three layers of shirts. Last night I was trying on the bras I had bought prior to medically transitioning and I'm mostly filling one B cup bra and comfortably filling the other (why can't manufacturers be consistent across brands?). So I'll be running over to the local Walmart and getting some bra strap extensions, and maybe checking out the A and B cup sports bras as well.

It sounds like the estrogen is going to town making changes already. I had to wait until I was in my fourth week before my nipples started the ouchies.

It may not be the bra. I don't think anyone has both breasts the same size. My right is bigger than my left. 

 

I think you're right. The Estrogen may be kicking in. I got my blood tests back from my first doctor app. before he put me on HRT. My testosterone was 378, in 193-950 range. My Estrogen was 11.1, in 11.3-43.2 range. My BMI was 1 point from being obese. Everything else was either normal or borderline. I'm trying to eat better now and exercising pretty much every other day. Didn't like the sounds of OBESE. I thought I was doing ok at 5'-10" 200# at 68 yrs old.

Well finally got my E refill. yesterday. So this is my 5th week. No tenderness, but I maybe seeing some growth. My nipples are calloused anyway from being pierced a few times. They are always perky.

 

Well today at work my son dropped off some paperwork I need to get copied. I didn't have time to put on my vest so he may have seen the name on my work shirt. Neither him or my wife are home right now. They came up together. so don't know where they are don't really care either.

 

So, to present more female at work.I am thinking of painting my fingernails again. I have just a clear-esh polish on them now. but looking at color. Thoughts?

 I was wondering what that status of son and wife are in regard to transition.... I hope you have told them and they are coming along if that is what you want. Depending on how work has accepted you I'd still kind of keep to lighter colors on nails to get them used to it unless you want to go gungho. I like a light pink.

I usually go clear, but I'm looking for a cool peach to match my skin tone. My suggestion is to find something fun and have at it. You need a little fun. Don't buy anything big at first, maybe find a sampler then go ahead and see what looks good on you. Find something that's really YOU and makes you happy. So long as it makes Kymmie happy, it's all good.

 

Hugs!

Hrm, so to spice it up... maybe one of those air/sea rescue colors that can be seen from space? Probably not very professional though. 😉

Hi viz polish, I’m in.

I'm not really to keen on how hard data on how many people actually detransition, and how only the smallest percentage of them did so out of regret, was presented and yet the claim that "so many people are detransitioning" gets parroted afterwards in article. And the concern that kids are transitioning just for the attention or popularity, when there are so many easier ways to get those sort of rewards, just feeds into the whole "transtrender" false narrative.   If this article were truly balanced, rather than "balanced" in appearance, it would have focussed on the actual data and what scientists, doctors and actual trans folk were saying and less so on the dissenting voices that lack the data.

 

But that's just my read of it. I do like the message of loving your kids no matter what though.

      My regular therapist has been great for me as I wait well looking for a LBGTQ therapist. Problem is She just went on maternity leave and I miss her already. I see a LBGTQ "doctor" tomorrow and am very anxious.____     Hugs Stefi

      I believe this is the offending portion of the legislation:   An institution may not discriminate against a student organization with respect toa benefit available to any other student organization based on a requirement of the organization that leaders or voting members of the organization:(1)Adhere to the organization's viewpoints or sincerely held beliefs; or(2) Be committed to furthering the organization's beliefs or religious missions.   Off to the Courts we go...   Carolyn Marie

      Hi, I know this is sorta random and I'm not sure If I've acquainted myself here but, I'm Taylor and I'm a teen who's looking for other teens to hang out with. I don't really have any supporting friends or friends who also identify under the Transgender umbrella. And with this topic I was hoping to succeed in finding some people who may be interested in becoming friends. Y'know someone I could just message regularly and talk to about anything. 😄 If anyone's shy that's fine because I am too, I'm also a bit awkward so if someone's not SUPER awkward like I am I'd like to get to hang out 🙂 just message me and we'll see how it goes from there. Thanks!

      @AmberM I agree that I do go through cycles but with HRT and my GI therapist - the cycles aren't as extreme nor last as long and I am thankful for that AND because I am getting at the root cause of my depression and anxiety, those pains are less severe.   Getting the right therapist is a godsend.

      Today, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signed House Bill 1503 into law — legislation that allows student groups at colleges, universities, and high schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students.   https://www.hrc.org/press-releases/north-dakota-gov-doug-burgum-signs-anti-lgbtq-house-bill-1503-into-laww

      I have found therapy to be useful over the years, however, there was always this one thing that kept coming back that I didn't know how to deal with. After finally getting after my gender identity, I have noticed a lift in my mood, and improvement in several symptoms. What is hard though, is this time of year, normally my mood naturally increases. So we have to wait until October time frame to see if it dips down super low again. It isn't that I don't get dips week to week, because I still get some dips, just they haven't been as low as they were in the past. I think therapy has been pivotal to my success and will remain to be key to my continued success.

      Nothing special today.  Black high-neck tank and jeans. The neckline is more conservative then I usually wear but I really like the look and feel.    Also added finishing powder to my makeup routine. Not that I need it for work but practice makes perfect.

      Ok, thanks so much I'll be sure to check it out!

      Jandi, This is my life in a nut shell. I'm several years behind you, but this is exactly how I have come to see myself. @Jani is correct in pointing out that most of us are not girls, but women, and in my case an older woman. My Suzie is still coming around slowly to the fact that I'm transgender and we can openly talk about how this affects our relationship, and our different feelings. This June 26th, we will be married for 45 years, now she understands that my many girl friends, were just that GIRL friends. Nothing More. I'm not looking to be with anyone but my Suzie, and have to always remind her of that. It's human nature to want to be desired, in my opinion. Relationships die or fail when the people in them stop pursuing each other. It's the hunt, not the kill. It's about the fishing not just the landing of a trophy mount. My joy in gardening is the gardening, not just the harvest or cut flowers.   Good morning everyone, the coffee was HOT, black, strong, and never bitter.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Retirement opened the door for me. I'd told myself I needed to free myself but the fear of more abandonment and rejection and as has been said in the most recent postings - I looked to please and comfort others and deny myself. It's getting easier but the road to recovery is long and grueling.
