@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

      Yes. I see my therapist every week and we talk about my issues in general. While she's not specifically a gender therapist, she's an ally. With her help, I've made great strides in going from an angry bung-hole to, well, me.   Hugs!

      Who is that in the mirror? Is that me..? No, oh no it couldn't be. For I'm a girl but is that who I want to be..? I don't even know who I am.  I frown yet in that frame I smile. This thought drives me insanely wild.  Is it me or is it not..? I cannot tell, everyone calls me her or she. But, what if that's not really me? What if I'm not a girl?  If I told them all these feelings would I still be apart of their world? Everyday the same old lie convincing myself to be her. I put a mask on as I pass those I love by grinning ear from ear. While entrapped is this boy, begging to have a walk outside. This charade is permanent I fear, unless someone sinister were to hear. I pretend and pretend that it's okay, As I watch myself fade away. Wear this, put that jewelry on. The same commands I hear and hear. While I always find myself in tears. No one cared no one did, so this "girl" committed. She had a plan, scary but true she killed herself to be the girl her family always wanted her to.

      I wish I was seeing some numbers when they say "increase" but the heading is a bit misleading which I think our "concern trolls" will grab like a jelly doughnut.  In line with the study, my blood pressure has entered the "well controlled" stage that my medical team feels proud of.  It is good information for our doctors, but we need to keep it away from our H8ers.
    • KymmieL
      @Willow are suggesting that I be  an adult.  I don't wanna be a dult.  LOL.  I do agree with you.  I should just call.    Well good  new for my weekend.  My youngest is working days. So, its Kymmie time again.  Hopefully I will be able to get to my VA appointments. I will be going as Kymmie yeah.  Hope the stupid white crap stays away.    Hugs, Kymmie

      Pornography, especially the pictures of women in the nude, and even involved in sex action do show nice looking women in them who are presented with overtones of sexuality. As part of my career in business law enforcement I met some of them from time to time.  The same women also modeled for "non-porn" magazines and looked just a good without the sexual connotation and were just as beautiful in clothing and just as interesting to me as role models in those cases as the porn.  Cis males are looking at them in either place with the sexual connotation, I was not.  A role model is only effective when the role is one you find you must take on and you get them AFTER you decide it is for you, even if it is slight and hidden from your conscious world.  Porn gave you some idea of how you want to be, but did not INFECT you with being Trans.

      Yes, you are right. Gender comes from deep inside. Thank you for your answer, girl!
    • Natalie99
      My dear, Please don't do it! Suicide is never a solution. Try to find something that gives you hope. A childhood dream, a hobby, anything that you can imagine and will make you feel less stressful. E. g. reading a book, writing a story or a poem, listening to or playing music, doing sport, cooking, watching movies series anything. I know that it is really hard to fight these thoughts and depression. But it can be better! Sometimes life is a roller coaster, but you will eventually go upwards. Control your life, don't let your thoughts control you.
    • Mary Jane
      yay! 🙂 and I'm not necessarily more outgoing online but i am less shy and your welcome ^^
    • Taylor_The_Human
      Yeah, I agree It usually feels awkward sometimes..! I'm hoping it won't here though. I'm 14, but soon to be 15, I'm really shy usually, but it doesn't always seem so when online. I've tried making friends before but they've all turned out to be people I shouldn't associate with or just weren't great people... I agree a relationship of ANY sort requires effort from both people. If anything I'm more outgoing online but that's the only difference between how I interact in person. 🙂 And I'm will to get to know you if that's cool. Thanks!   -Taylor.
    • Mary Jane
      we could be friends im 17 now by the way and me too for being shy i dont seem like it now but i am and im typing here because for everyone ive tried and gotten a friend (3 times) its never really felt like an actual friendship maybe some kind of friendship but in comparison for how it feels, my current real life best friend VS every other wellll every other has felt like weaker and its never really worked out that long   Im also typing here because I've tried before but all the other people dont even try back and a friendship needs both people working or is it really a friendship? for me no even if its online only, which ive found most people usually treat it differently than real life but i try to not treat it differently
    • LusciousTheLock
      I'm on my third counsellor. She's admitted to taking a different approach to me as we come from similar backgrounds and we have a scary way of understanding each other. She reminds me of the little lady in the film Poltergeist!  Cow, can read minds!!! Knows everything about me, what I'm thinking or if I'm lying. I've spent sessions where I've been shouted at for an hour, and others where we've chatted about random stuff, laughing like old friends.   Its been three years and I can honestly say I wouldn't be here without her pushing me along when I've faltered and opening my mind to new ideas and learning to accept who I am.
    • JustKate
      I think you have to look at it from another perspective and your thoughts.   Would a cis guy see attractive women in porn and think "I could be a woman"? I mean I'm sure they have some sexual fantasies about being a lesbian for a day. But, when all is said and done, they want to be a man.   I do know that quite a common fantasy amongst the trans women I know before they transitioning was to be a "sissy" and liked porn like that.   Do I think it could change someone's gender impression? Maybe at surface level, but deep down, cis people want to be cis even if they have periods of time where they are influenced by outside issues.
    • Natalie99
      I'm sorry to hear that. Do not feel guilty! You were really brave to come out. You don't deserve to be called a liar. It is not like you have cheated on them or something!   However, understand that it is shocking for them, as others have said before. They experience grief of a loss one. But I recommend you to focus on your emotions, and that you are beginning your new life - the one that you deserve.   I also recommend watching this video. (And her other videos too, she explains stuff really well.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pfZyR-34-g
