Ok I’m up now and the soreness from the double shots yesterday is wearing off!

 

went for a short 3 mile walk with my dog yesterday to enjoy a sunny break in the clouds. I bumped into a momma and her 3yo daughter dancing along the path play sword fighting with little twigs on the other side of this pond, and I asked if they were celebrating Halloween. O yeah! So I told them to keep their eye out for a little painted rock on the tree stump jutting out of of the fence just around the corner!
 

what I found intriguing was the little girl evidently enjoying a stereotypical boy activity and the momma totally engaged in the moment with this expression of joy with her daughter. A couple of blocks later I ran into 3 girls twirling hula hoops and evidently enjoying that activity. One of them had an old wooden hoop that had beads inside it and she proudly declared it belonged to her grandmother. I love the way little kids feel comfortable and natural expressing their own sense of gender. It’s a real shame that this image is too frequently shattered by parental or societal expectations.

Not much to report here, just a minor life changing event. 

I finished my meeting, which is now my last, I pulled out. 

 

No more people!!!! Freedom!!!!!    So now I'm focused on me. 

I've been studying my insurance, and I'm covered for srs, (I have federal blue cross)

 

I have nothing in my way to stop me now.

I know the march that is required, been through it a few times.

So now the march is finally real. 

I also have an ace in the hole. My doctor. 

 

So now my focus is real, and nothing holding me back.

All because of a meeting. I had had enough, I'm moving on.

 

Most important is my wife. She has been expecting this for over 20 years now.

So my full transition is in place.

 

That is where I'm at now. Moving closer to my final goal.

Good morning everyone, I hope you have a great day, and wonderful week.


Today I prepared Bob Evan’s real pork patties, two Texas-toast slices as egg-in-the-middle, served with Red Plum jelly on the side, black coffee and small glass of apple juice. #Fall #Brunch 

 

Hugs,

All I have to add right now is my smile. My battles are finally over.

So where do I go from here? Hmmmm... a new adventure is beckoning.

I hope everyone is doing better than I am right now. So, Friday I was feeling a little icky. But me and my wife took off for Rock Springs, WY to enjoy a pre-anniversery weekend. It is Tuesday. Hit the Harley Dealer out there. Then around dinner time things stared going down hill. I had body aches, head ache, chill, congestion. Friday night I was sweating my tail off one minute freezing the next. We headed home early.

 

Since our store manager was positive for Covid I got tested. Guess what low and behold. I am positive too. Yeppy. So I am off work for the next 10 days. My wife and youngest got tested today. The rapid test for them was negative. So, they are isolating themselves up stair. (nothing abnormal there).

Oh no! Take good care! This bug is a real crapshoot. Some people shrug it off and some struggle on a ventilator for a month, or worse. 


my wife is terrified of catching it. Me, not too worried. I got my booster. I turned down a job driving a school bus after my wife reemphasized her concerns. It feels like a prison sentence sometimes, being super cautious around crowds, but it does bring a measure of peace-of-mind on the home front.

Oh YIKES! On the plus side, studies show that women tend to weather the virus better so go estrogen! May you come out the other side unscathed and with none of those stupid slow-COVID side effects.

@Mmindy that brunch sounds super hearty! Yummm... 

 

Oh dear, @KymmieL. I also hope you weather it well and have a complete and rapid recovery. You'll be in my prayers.

I finally had a consult for "genetic" freezing the other day. Progress on things has been feeling glacial because this year's caused other priorities, but I feel like I'm finally getting a little closer to HRT (Can't believe it's been nearly a full year already since I started seeing a GT). Paying for the freezing and storage is still a big question mark, but the urologist I talked to was pretty adamant that the infertility effects of feminizing hormones is pretty reliably reversible by temporarily going off the hormones. Not that I expect I'd be happy to have to go off them, but in any case hopefully that may provide a path forward to hrt if I can't make the cryo storage work financially right now. Feel like I've shelved moving forward with transition plently long enough.

Random deep thoughts today. About 6 years ago my family and I escap… er moved out of Illinois and up to Wisconsin. After moving here I had more exposure to the LGBT+ community. Maybe a year or 2 after the move is when I started understanding what transgender really was. I wonder if we had stayed in Illinois, would I have ever figured out what I was feeling? Or would I have attempted to go through life as miserable as I was never really understanding or acknowledging my situation.

I think sometimes it takes a major change in our lives to free our minds and break a pattern we've been trapped in for most of our lives.

It did for me.

@Vidanjalithank you. It was so hearty, we didn’t eat anything until late evening. I haven’t been commenting much lately, but I do have to say, I love reading your posts. It’s like you’re writing about my life feelings.

 

@KymmieLtake care of yourself and rest. My COVID experience in December 2020 lasted into late January.

 

Hugs,

@KymmieLI'm not sure of your vaccination status, but if you were vaccinated then hopefully that means you've seen the worst of the symptoms. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts for a speedy recovery HUGS

I am actually starting to feel better. Congestion is lightening up. Not much of a headache. Still gonna sleep in the lazyboy tonight. Maybe the couch.

 

I have been fully vaccinated.

Good morning!

 

Came out to a cousin's kid yesterday (she came out to me with her variety of being human too). At first she thought it was a joke, so cross that off the bingo card. She did say I seem happier, but wish a year in it would be clearer that I wasn't kidding!

I'm glad you escaped from Illinois and found your true self. Sometimes it takes a change of envirement. I was away from Illinois for 11 years in Tacoma. It was awesome. Had to move back though. Wish I could have stayed there. It wouldn't have worked out.

It's nice to be accepted. Being transgender is definitely no joke. It's a lot of hard work and teaches us patience and budgeting, but in most cases much happier with who you are. I know I am.

@Mmindy I'm gratified that you find my posts relatable. One way of getting outside of ourselves (that is, to abate any tenancy to get sucked into the drama of suffering, for example) is to share. Realizing there's nothing new under the sun in the sense that what one person experiences or feels is likewise experienced and felt by others (albeit with varying nuances) is soothing, as it cultivates the impression that we're never truly alone. So, thank you for sharing that. ❤️🙏

 

@KymmieL so glad to hear you're feeling a bit better. Let the upswing continue. 

 

@RhondaS consider the possibility that your cousin's kid's perspective is based on (presumably) having known you for a long time. That is, when we know someone for a long time, we usually think of them in the gestalt and may not notice specific things that would indicate this or that. No one I've come out to as trans nonbinary has thought I was joking, but whereas some people were immediately able to comprehend as in "oh, of course you are", others were more incredulous as in, "but I've always seen you as so feminine". Note, THEY see me as this or that, not YOU ARE this or that. Some people, even people of varied ways of being human (as you put it), just aren't as keen at seeing things in another person. And sometimes it takes someone time to process that information and their immediate reaction may not reflect their potential for full compression. Even though you're a year into transition, she may need time to put the puzzle pieces together to realize, oh yeah! Suffice to say that her immediate perception of you does not equal who you are. So, please try not to be discouraged about the progress you've made. Much love!

Well darn. My dreams of surgery has been squashed. Not because of my age, but do to the fact I'm in bad physical

shape. If only I took better care of myself. My wife is terrified I won't survive the surgery, my doctor feels the same way

and I have the doctor anyone like us could have, he is gay and has a husband. 

Well to make a long story short, I'm not upset about this, I knew this would be the out come so I'm just moving forward 

with the best I can work with.

      Interesting about period symptoms. I get the backache, the emotional ups and downs and the desire to make a baby for about 2-3 days a month, and on a regular cycle (ie: it is always the same 3 days, give or take a day.) Since my knees hurt virtually every day--relics of an errant and misspent youth--I discounted them. The rest makes sense, though...

      Thanks so much for the input ladies.  Valerie, the only time I plan on spending outside is the walk from the parking lot to the restaurant, not a long walk, but could be as much as one-hundred yards.  I was leaning towards the pumps to be honest, but these particular boots, with the high-heels, aren't great when I am doing a lot of walking, so I thought this event might be the perfect opportunity to show them off.  I may just wear the boots while driving, bring my pumps along and make the final decision when I get to dinner.

      My father actually got very close to saying the "proud" word as i finished building our home.  It had taken over a year during which i had been almost fanatical.  I desperately tried to get by without a mortgage having sold our first farm and getting out of debt.  I guess i had proved that i was a man.    Hugs,   Charlize

      I did get this from one of my daughters.

      That’s interesting. I wonder how that worked seeing the process of the uterus shedding causes the bleeding. Wild to say the least. (I’m intersex ..had ovaries , although not functional )
    • KymmieL
      IIRC it was my GYN that said that. With my pushing to get on HRT. She was proud of me.   Kymmie
    • ValerieRun
      Based on the description of your outfit pumps sound like absolutely best fit. However, if you plan on spending any time outside and skirt is long enough boots might be reasonable choice. But yes, the event calls for chic and pumps are IT 😀

      So sorry Bri.   well it’s now the third day.  Talk about.bruises!  I’ve got bruises on top of bruises.  And In places I wouldn’t have expected.  I slept fairly well last night.  I’m really spreading out my pain meds now.    its mostly sitting around right now.   coffee is good this morning at least I can get back to that.  I missed it while in Charleston.   take care stay away from the malls.  Be good to each other.   hugs   Willow 
    • Heather Shay
      Never from family or friends except for music producer and recently my HRT NP. I have dear friends here who are encouraging but I guess the word proud is a trigger point for me. I try to tell people I'm proud of them especially young people.
