Hugs, @RhondaS

 

So sorry to hear about your goodbye. For myself I was hateful for my dad when he passed and even though we weren't close, it was hard to let go of. I was much closer to my mom and went through her loss with sympathy and love and her memory is dearer to my heart for that. In either case, it was a hard time for me. Take care of yourself now. And let love and care come sit with you.

All the best,

 

Davie

Here we go. My sax attempt after my accident. There are many members here that keep me going. We are not just internet,  we are people. This one attempt is for Jani, (never give up)  so much more to give.

Love and hugs,

So sorry about your mom. It's good that you were there for her. I believe she is not in pain now. I don't pretend to know where we go when we pass. My wife has had a few near death experiences and she said there is no pain. I believe her. The only pain now is ours because we love and miss our loved ones. I am confident that you will see her again. My guess is that she will visit you very soon. My mother did with me. It may be in a dream or a scent or something shows up to let you know she's OK.

Went to Social security office today to turn in change of name papers. Lobby is closed for covid. Luckily they have a drop box. I called them. They wanted me to leave my driver's license there. I didn't like that idea. They said I could give them a signed medical record with my info on it instead. Thank goodness my doctor office is only a half mile from there. So I gave them the medical sheet instead. Saved me from having to drive 30 miles back home to get something.

@RhondaS I can only imagine what you're going through right now, so I'll simply say I'm here if you need me for anything. We all are, really. ~hugs~

My condolances to you,@RhondaS.  It's always hard to lose family, especially when it looks like they may be on the mend and the situation instead takes a turn for the worse.  My heart goes out to you.

Good morning,


We’re internet acquaintances, so don’t feel the need to express sympathy, I’ll take it, but anyway, I helped my mother pass away yesterday. After 7 1/2 days where it was mostly just me as the visitor during the parts of the 12 hour visitation times we finally let her go. 

My condolences Rhonda. I feel we are more than that; for me, we people here are kindred spirits, who console, hug & rejoice with each other through it all happy & sad. I feel the sadness in my heart for your loss, may you find comfort.

 

A big spiritual Hug!

Got this morning's leftover coffee going on, this time around with ice cubes.

 

I saw my endocrinologist a couple of weeks ago.  We talked about upping my scrip a little.  I've been on a fairly low dose.  I didn't ask for specifics at the time, but when hit came in the mail he had doubled it.  In the past it had only been small increments at a time.  I started the new dose a couple of days ago.  This morning when I got up I felt just really  good, like happy happy.

 

Anyway…

Have to get a new sticker/renewal for a trailer tag.  Went over to the tag office - there were so many lined up I just turned around and left.  No rush on that.  I'll go earlier in the day next time.

 

I had lost my library card awhile back, so since I was in town, I thought I'd stop by and see about that since things are opening up again.  Thought just maybe I could get a new one in my name name.  They wanted my ID and all, which is still dead named of course.  (I have some stuff going on at this time in my life which would be unnecessarily complicated by a legal change).  She got her supervisor, I showed them some mail I have gotten as Jandi, and they finally agreed to do it.

I realize it's no big thing, but at least at the library, I am now on record as Jandi. 

 

I guess small changes are still progress.

@Jandicongrats. Doesn’t matter if they’re small. Changes are changes.

Big condolences, @RhondaS. At the risk of sounding all Captain Obvious, it's certainly not a good thing for anyone to have to go through. As you might remember I lost mine earlier this year, too. I guess this makes us grief sisters 💜 Hugs.

 

And I think Jamie is right about getting a sign from your mom. I don't normally even believe in things like that, but I had an experience like that myself only just yesterday. I'd recently been put in touch with a case manager who's been helping me with misc some paperwork. While doing this yesterday, just by pure chance, this lady was also able to connect me with a likely buyer for an old car I need to sell (I inherited my mom's car, so no point in spending the $$ to insure and maintain two cars.) I had really been dreading putting on the "salesman" hat, what with all of my social anxiety, so that worked out great. But then afterwords, this case manager started talking about how she's into things like crystals, reiki, other new age-y type stuff. Not my kind of thing, but I thought "OMG, this lady and my mom would have gotten along SOOO incredibly well!" Whether real or not, either way, that really made me feel like my mom's out there looking after me in ways she wouldn't have been able to in life. 🥰

 

On a different note, I had a really good day yesterday for another reason, too.  I finally had my first meeting with a local trans support group. And it was in-person, too! (I'm fully vaxxed at this point.) It was outdoors and the weather was perfect. It was a very small informal group, the lgbt organization its through was only founded just a little before the pandemic hit. But it was sooo nice to finally be able to meet and chat with other trans people in person. It's been kind of lonely around here lately anyway, so that really was just what I needed. I already can't wait to go back again next month. I might also go to the pflag meeting they're hosting next week.

Oh no @RhondaS! I don't believe any crying is ugly at all.

      @Kathy2020 same here. I love your suggestion about birthday, affirmation, confirmation. 
    • Shay
      The day before my court hearing to change my name I was a bit nervous and near 5 o'clock as my family came ashore from a trip to Put-In-Bay, Ohio , this sign appeared in the sky and especially being a rainbow I knew the folks above were giving me the thumbs up.    Did anything unusual occur just before you changed your name or if you haven't changed names - have there been any other special signs given to you that you are on the right path?

      Welcome Nikki. I graduated back in the '70s as well, and while my circumstances were a bit different, there are a lot of similarities we share. My heart weeps for what you had to go through and are experiencing now. As everyone has said, there is still hope you can be your true self. Have faith, be strong and keep in mind that everyone on this website is welcoming, accepting and supportive. You are loved. You are special. You will be in my prayers.   Hugs,   Marcie

      Hello Heather Michelle Shay, its so nice to meet you! 😊
    • Shay
      Good conversation - I like the birthday, affirmation and confirmation day concept - no reason we can't mark those days to be extra kind and special to yourself even if no one else is forced to give presents.
    • Kathy2020
      Never underestimate the power of a LBD to make you feel happy, secure, and sexy!!! Your shoes are a good match for it too! 😊
    • MelanieTamara
      Not me. Having adult children flips the table a bit. Not only do I get presents, I require them...kinda like tribute. In fact, I am so ruthless, I even implemented a 100 dollar buy in threshold.
    • Kathy2020
      I'm so glad we are working through the positive side of having multiple birthdays in this thread because I am a big supporter of it too!!! 😆 Presents don't have to come in a box either (except from my sister who thinks its a federal law); a nice dinner out, a spa or massage day, a mani-pedi with my bff, or just getting some positive support from my family & friends are all great gifts! 😊   Getting back to the original topic though... I've been thinking a bit lately about this very topic because I am less than two days away from beginning HRT and starting to get the paperwork sorted out for my name change. I think its all up to the individual, but I'm leaning toward my name change day being my "new" birthday, HRT being my affirmation day, and SRS being my confirmation day. If I can plan things right and have my court hearing for name change on my current birthday though, that would be ideal! I definitely see name change day being super important because that's when you become you legally to everyone no matter what, just like the moment someone put a name to paper when we were fresh out of the box! 😊

      I hope you waited, oh, four weeks in between. You wouldn't want them to catch you double-dipping.   Hugs!
    • Shay
      @AmberM I understand not getting presents - I usually buy things I want - but back rubs - that's another kettle of fish entirely. My daughter is a certified massage therapist but she ain't cheap and being half Polish I go for cheap. Heck when I go for a flu shot, they say it's free so I get back in line and get a second one.
    • Vini
      Also @Jandi not to belabor the hair topic, but I have heard that older mtf trans have an advantage in hrt transition, since they don't have as far to go compare to cis women of the same age.  Since Menopausal women experience hair growth and hair loss, and other hormonal changes.  So there may be many women out there who are balding on top, and their hairdresssers take care of them with wigs, extensions and or styling.  So you may be just be one of the older girls who are attractive in scarfs, berets and wigs.  My one experimental wig length was very enjoyable flowing around my neck and shoulders as you commented once.
