My endocrinologist has seen trans people for over two decades. He has only had a few of them detransition, said it is very rare.

Hi y’all 

 

for all my diesel mechanic friends, just an update. I got the transmission separated and the cover plate off before my foot surgery.   I remove the bolts that held the flywheel to the crank as well, but that’s where I stopped.

 

today, I got back on the task. I finally got the flywheel off.  Then I managed to get the bell housing off. In Marine engines, the plate and the bell housing are made backwards compare to a car.  There is also a rear seal that is part of the bell housing but it doesn’t appear to be an oil seal though has the same construction.  Next I need to remove bolts from the front of the engine.  I’m hoping I won’t have to tear down the entire front end. Cam chain Timing, injection timing fuel pump, two water pumps lots of things I’d prefer to avoid touching.  But I also don’t know if it’s possible considering the gaskets.  What a pain just to pull the oil pan, to determine if the engine can even be repaired.  
 

on the nail polish debate, strictly clear for me. I tried a very neutral color once but that didn’t last long.

OK, Jackie. Where did you get my class picture?

 

Don't know. but Like I said.I contacted the District Manager for the Store in Deer Park, WA. Because there wasn't a store manager listed. I did it on Saturday.

 

So today, I answer the phone. It is my DM. It seems like the DM from WA emailed my DM about me. I don't know if it is good news. but it maybe Because they way I figure the WA DM could just as easily replied to the email saying sorry I have someone for that position. Things could be looking up.

 

On to other news. Well I painted my nails, Sally Hansen purple before I went in. So as I was doing my check out. My wife comes in. Talks to me about a part for her car. I'm in my work shirt clearly with Kymbrill clearly on it. Not a word was said. not even when I got home.

Sounds like my wife. Just pretend it’s not happening.

Good morning and my black coffee was consumed during this mornings spin. I’m getting ready to hit the pharmacy before work to pick up my first round of magic pills. Let’s get this show on the road!

I'm not sure how that would work. Is this a metaphor or the real thing? Colour me intrigued.

Congratulations Erica.  Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.  It may seem slow at times while at others  brakes seem necessary.  In some time you will look back and see how far you've gone.

 

Hugs,

Good morning everyone 
 

It sounds like there is a fair amount of good news or potential good news here!

 

Well, I made the coffee, had my cup.  It was good.  I’m just waiting for my wife to wake up.  She’s been having trouble sleeping lately so when she is asleep I don’t want to awaken her.  Guess I’ll start some quiet chores.

I do not know what is a real thing.

If I "really" am a woman, then why not the rest?

Good morning all. Got back last night from Colorado. It was a good flight 

passengers were happy to get back.

Good morning everyone,

 

I've been on vacation trout fishing, and avoiding social media even TV. I hope everyone is moving along well and working out the issues that you face. I can't stress enough how refreshing it is to just put down the electronic devices and boat along the river, even if the fishing is slow.

 

Hugs, stay positive, and safe,

I wish I can get away from everything and just float down a river.  I prefer kayaks while on a river.  Hope you at least got one fresh meal out of the trip.

For those who have worked with their companies or communities to get more inclusive environments...  I was just in a first meeting with my company about starting up a LBGTQ+ resource group.  I work for a larger place that has thousands of employees.  Anyways.. I am thinking about taking up a Chair position.  What was the experience  others have had with something like this.  Being newer to accepting myself would it be wise to put myself out there and be a large part of the community?  What would you all do?

Breanna, I would go for it. If asked. I would too if my company asked for me to be on a LGBTQ committee. With the L and G communities getting more acceptance the T community is lacking.

Go for it. it is good for the people in your company and shows leadership which is good for you in your company.  While it will be a very visible position you aren't likely to get to much neagativity because it's sponsored by your company and no one will openly put themselves in a position to get fired for hate.  My guess it will be a bit of work so if you have the bandwidth then boom!

Don't think I would want that. I don't have much shoulders to lose. Now if I could just transfer tummy fat to hips, that would be great.

      Hi everyone    It’s been an day of ups and downs literally.  I spent the afternoon working on my boats engine install. I am so close it’s amazing.  I had to get some materials to shim the engine. I made the shims and was headed down into the salon to install them and my companion way ladder slipped and down I went. Didn’t do any more after that.  Rested on the couch, took ibuprofen and listened to the radio until I felt good enough to drive home.  Iced and rested at home.  I’m going to feel it in the morning for sure.   @Elizabeth Star that is certainly the confusing part when things are good one day and not another.    Everyone is different of course but I take this as a sign of trying to accept but it is difficult still.   Willow

      How does substituting one form of bigotry for another help improve society? I find the concept of privilege to be 'acceptable prejudice'  that has been driven by political ideology. There is no question that there are significant inequalities in the world. There isn't a simple cause nor a simple solution. My goal is to have evidence before I judge someone. Human beings are extremely tribal thus less trusting of those that are different and reluctant to stray from their tribes world view.   I think we confuse entitlement with privilege. I worked in technology in the 70s, 80s and 90s when it was almost entirely a male field. In my personal experience, I was guilty of having preconceptions about women in technology that I learned over time were just bias. I preferred working with women because they more likely to discuss issues than dictate the solution. I did discover that those men that behaved with what we would now term privilege were mostly viewed with the same dislike by the women and men I worked with.

      That's a bleak and dismal view of humanity; I don't buy it personally. Like I said, every group has upsides and downsides. One of the downsides of being a male is that it's only socially acceptable to feel three emotions; "Fine/Okay", "Angry" or "-excited-". If you express any other emotion, society labels you a wuss lol. ALL groups have upsides, downsides, good qualities and bad qualities. That's the nature of duality; that's the nature of yin and yang, that's the fundamental nature of the whole Universe. Trying to say any one group is "more" or "less" is....illogical lol. Especially in America where all Americans have the same Bill of Rights under the same Constitution.  One of the downsides of being white for example is that anyone who isn't white will probably automatically think you're a racist just because of the color of your skin; happens to me all the time. Didn't used to. I wonder why??? Kidding lol. I know exactly why racism against white people is on the rise. (Identity politics. It's divisive lol.) Hell, look at our school system (what's left of it.) A lot of teachers are leaving because of the "Critical Race Theory" bull crap that's being forced on them, because, for some baffling reason lol, teachers just aren't comfortable with teaching kids that there's something wrong with the color of their skin. They don't want to tell black kids that they'll never be good enough in the eyes of society. They don't want to tell white kids that they're inherently racist because of what their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. Why don't they want to teach kids these things? Because it's racist, and Contrary to what the left would have you believe, America isn't a racist country. The left is definitely a racist party though if you ask me; all they ever see is race lmao. And it's disgusting. They don't judge people based on the quality of their character; they judge them based on their race and gender...so they're SEXIST too lmao.  I know I'm probably a minority in my beliefs. I know it's dangerous to share my opinion. I don't care.  Nowadays it's dangerous to be anything but a super "woke" liberal socialist lol. Anyone with a different viewpoint is just a racist lmao. "Worse than Hitler!" 😆🙄 PS: Yeah, people in my country at least DID see other people as people. At least they did before Obama started telling everyone race was still a serious issue...despite becoming friggin' PRESIDENT lmao. XD I gotta love the hypocritical irony; just gotta laugh at it sometimes lol. Like when Biden said masks work but walls don't. That cracked me up lmao. XD Anyhoo....yeah, this country gonna get ran into the ground now. I'm just sitting back with a bucket of popcorn waiting for the new Civil War to begin so I can run for the hills to avoid my fate in the concentration camps lol.

      ive tried before (with cousins) plus kind of with parents but nothing is working and i talked to a therapist before while i was feeling too different but that just led to talk to a therapist that like specializes in trauma because of how shy i can be   ive heard once before from an online friend i had before that each of us needs to take care of our selves the most not seek help. thats true but each one of us does need help too   but thinking back to before i was open i never needed help and im trying to not need help like before

      Also I do care, I just am not in a position to help you, I was thinking someone like a parent or sibling.
    • rainflower
      Ok Mary, then you need to tell someone that cares about you and get help, either thru hotline or hospital.
    • rainflower
      Don't be blind to the issues, there is privilege based on race/sex/ethnicity/gender/economic status etc. and others suffer for it. There has never been a time in recorded history were people saw other people as people, the only difference is now these things are getting labels and brought into the light to be confronted.
    • Maddee
      I sang a lot to cope.   Avoided manu passages of man life.  Didn't want to walk through them I guess.   Not surrendering to being entirely "normal" (as I percieved it) helped me.    My life matrix aided and abetted my escapade.  Especially prior to coming to terms and committing to transitioning.   That last part may sound strange, but Im not sure how else to express it..

      Thank you for sharing the story, @Jandi.  It is unfortunate but entirely expected that such stories as yours will not play well in conservative-leaning communities.  Times change as well as attitudes, however slowly; the acceptance of gay marriage being the most obvious example.  Yet,  there are people who wish to roll back the clock on even that.  They will not succeed, because people have seen that gay marriages have not "destroyed the institution of marriage" as some predicted.  They will also come to see that trans people are not scary, and deserve equality and respect.  But it will take time.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
