@Jamie68 It sounds like you found a good thing.  Long drive, but worth it, I know.  I can't Imagine doing this without my therapist.  That's a significant step.

The baby shower at work went OK I guess. TBH it was a little boring. We sat around for 20 minutes waiting on food. After we ate the mother-to-be opened the gifts. There's a breast feeding kit called the THE TIT KIT, who knew? Seems rather bold for a product name and then there's lactation cookies (?). I don't know how much of this I need or really want to learn about. It's like studying for a test I'll never take. I was over dressed compared to the other ladies but several did tell me I looked really nice.

 

Change of topic.

At the end of last night I asked my wife what was up with her using my name when the nurse came looking for me since she promised to dead-name forever. She said she's testing-the-waters. So we're definitely making progress on that front.

impatiently waiting for 8:00. I have a dentist appointment. I have a tooth that is about an 8 on the pain scale. started Wednesday. Today was the earliest I could get in. Dr. doesn't want me taking anything for the pain so she can get an accurate pain rating(?)Yeah, it flipping hurts.

 

The other position I applied for in Spokane valley wanted me to come in for an in person interview at 1pm today. Even after I told them I was still in WY. OH well. Right now I feel that my best chance on getting out of here is with my own company.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

I would guess the baby shower ranked right up there with a Tupper ware party. I've always thought all those kind of events were boring. The good part was that you were invited, and treated the same as any other woman.

 

I hesitate saying this because my therapist just told me about it. It looks like the grieving process is getting over with your wife and she's starting to accept you as you are more. YAY!

I hope your tooth feels better soon!

 

You could suggest that they do the interview by Zoom or Skype or something.  This is 2021: everyone uses technology for meetings.  They would still get to read your facial expressions and see how you present yourself, which is why they ask for in-person interviews.

Good morning all. Been so busy last couple of days. I did do some investigating this morning and just found out that HRT will not effect me as far as my FAA flight medical. As long as I have no issues on it the FAA has no issues with me so I can keep on flying on HRT. 1 obstacle gone. Moving forward.🤗

They said I have the full support of my company. I’m giggly and giddy needless to say. So when I go back to work everything will be different. I’m officially full time.

This is very good news Emily,

 

How is everything else going? I hope when you get back to work there's a lift crane on your service truck. I remember when I was a young mechanic, thinking it was a waste of space on the service truck. Later I would use it to set tires, and other things off or on the truck. "Work Smart Not Hard" all of a sudden had new meaning.

That's great Tasha,

 

I follow a few of trans-women on YouTube.  One is a Pilot, the other two are Flight Attendants, they seem to have full support of their employers.

 

Best wishes, and good luck with the FAA Physical.

@MmindyThank you. I have been flying for almost 43 years but just never looked into the regulations for this. I am a commercial pilot but wasn’t sure if I could. I was kind of scared to look until now.

Hi girls. I'm not sure what to talk about here, but the coffee sure smells great.

I guess here is where I join? Pilots license. I'm no pilot but I have a CDL class B with P indorsement for the last 8 years.

Physicals. Every year, everything counted against me to get my medical card...so I went back to my personal doctor and one doctor to another...I was fit to drive, every year for 8 years. I'm retired now and happy that is over with.

Good afternoon Linda,

 

The coffee was HOT, black, and strong,

 

I'm also on the CDL Class A, Hazmat, Tanker, Motorcycle endorsement truck, and because I'm type ll diabetic my DOT physical card is restricted to an annual physical. I'm cool with that, and will keep my certifications as long as I can, even into retirement. If I want to pick up a part time driving job I won't have to retake any tests. I'm a self employed, teaching fire departments, and chemical manufactures how to handle cargo tank crashes. I cover everything from product transfers, environmental issues, to public relations aka news media. I use to get paid for what I do, now I get paid for what I know.

 

Oh by the way, I love the flower print with or without the sweater.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie,

 

I couldn't help but laugh at the possible Funny Bone joke here. Why do they call it the funny bone when no one ever laughs after hitting it? Welcome to Smile's a comedy shop for your teeth, we'll crack you up.

 

No really, I hope you keep your teeth healthy and on a regular visit to your dentist.

 

Hugs,

Had a CDL B for years when I drove for the city.  Since we were local government we could skip the physicals.

Had to run a bunch of errands this morning.  Had a guy try to pick me up at the grocery store.  Although I was full fem as usual, I believe he was thinking of me as a gay guy.  It was kinda weird.  I'm like 70 years old.  I really don't know how to think about it.  I was friendly and all, but just wanted to go back home.

I'm so far behind on all the news. I was able to occasionally read it, but I haven't had time to post anything. It sounds like mostly good news for just about everybody. @KymmieLI'm sorry to hear about your tooth. Other than that, I'm happy to hear that things are going so well. 😊

Hi Mindy things have actually been really good. I’m officially presenting full time and everything will be changed when I go back to work. My service truck is at home with me if I have tools on it I refuse to leave it somewhere. My truck has a crane on and it is used daily, I’ve been told I don’t play nice with others so my crane is my 2nd set of hands and I couldn’t live with it out. I also refuse to drive a small service truck, because what I work on a small truck is useless but then again I’m picky.How are things with you I hope there going good.

I'm, glad things are moving in the right direction for you. I understand not leaving your truck somewhere else. Co-workers think if you're off work, you surely wouldn't mind if I borrow this tool, and I'll put it back when you ask for it. We had a saying in our shop: "If you borrow something more than three times, you need to buy one."-ToolMonkey

      I'm under 50 but still wanted to comment if that is ok. You said you can't bring yourself to talk to your wife about it, what about your daughter? Can you confide in her, and even check in with her to see how the wife would take it? Sometimes getting confirmation from another person that it may work out OK could give you that boost of confidence to approach her about it.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I don't have cleavage, but I have worn shirts for work that showed off quite a bit of chest, no one has said anything so far. As for age appropriate, I'm 37 and pretty much dress like a teenager (I get free clothes from a coworker's daughter when she gets tired of them). I have worn very small tops that show off a lot of chest and tummy, and things like fishnet stockings (not at work but out and about). I really don't think that top you showed is alarming in any way.
    • Jandi
      Sounds interesting.

      I liked very much a Chilean film called "Una mujer fantástica" (A fantastic woman, 2017). It's worth watching. Perhaps you can get it dubbed or subtitled in English.   Many Almodóvar movies portray an LGBTQ story or have it as a background. They range from the kitsch / camp to the profound, and they also vary in quality or inspiration, so people may love some and dislike others. If forced to recommend only one, I'd go for "La ley del deseo" (Law of desire, 1987).   Also, I recently watched a documentary called "Bambi" (2013) about Marie-Pierre Pruvot, nicknamed Bambi: a French trans woman born in Argelia who performed as a showgirl in the 50s and 60s and then became a teacher. She tells her story and I liked it very much.

      Even before I began my journey, I was always fascinated by hourglass figure. I was, of course, making up some silly reasons why I would need a waist-trainer ("it helps with weight loss") or corset. With the beginning of transition, it only made sense and became just a natural hope to achieve it. Currently, I can get a fairly good resemblance with steel-boned corset laced up all the way. And I absolutely love the feeling. One additional benefit, it helps with the posture so it is another reason to use it at least around house if you spend plenty of time sitting.   Cannot comment much on the padding, as I was starting with very non-masculine figure waist-down, and new fat redistribution only enhanced those areas to a point where shaping clothes are new reality in my future 🙂

      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

      😉 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
