@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

      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..
    • Carolyn Marie
      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

      Welcome to the forum.  Obviously we do not condone self medication of any kind so I'm glad to read you've stopped.   Going on HRT will provide the benefits you desire as you've seen.  As your hair is fine now you might wait to see how it goes.  Time to start Electrology!
