Hi, 

 

it’s been a very stress filled day. We got to the airport only to discover something went wrong with our tickets.  So we still made it to Atlanta only to get stuck here.  We are finally leaving here at 11pm instead of our expected 3pm. 
 

we won’t get to our hotel until after 1am. At least we don’t have to be out until 11am. Next is boarding the ship at 2pm. Finally we can relax.  
 

Last time my wife and I went out, we got ladies and mame’d all over.  That is nice

Good morning 

 

haven't made any coffee yet.  I’m still half asleep.  Yesterday was a very stressful day.  If it could go wrong, it did.  I had wanted to drive from home to here.  But my son convinced me to use my flight benefits.  Even said we could purchase a deeply discounted ticket so we weren’t on standby.  So I agreed. Big mistake!  Something went wrong right from the start and the ticket purchase was never finalized. We get to the airport and I can’t check in. Finally got on a standby list.  Got to Atlanta where we had to change planes.  That’s where everything blew up.  We did eventually did get to Fort Lauderdale, at 2am.

 

But, today will be better, stress free.  Nothing will go wrong!  (Affirmations)

 

@KymmieL i think you hit the nail square, you (we) often don’t care to put ourselves first.  We need a social life and put that ahead of our own needs.  I know I do that too.  I’d rather keep switching male/female and keep an even keel on the home front than do what’s best for me.

 

see y’all in a week.

Good afternoon everyone. Today is my 69th birthday. Brought coffee ☕️ and cake 🎂 for you all. Before I retired 3 years ago I always brought treats to work for my birthday. No reason to stop now for my new friends. 🥰

I'm having a late afternoon coffee, because the weather has really turned here and the temperatures are dropping.

That’s a right Hobbity thing to do! I think they call that an ambidrone, where you turn it upside down and it still says the same thing! Happy birthday 🎂

Happy Birthday Jamie. Hope you have a great day.

 

Other than false ones. Anyone know how to strengthen finger nails? How's a girl to have nice pretty nail when they are breaking all the time.

The surgeon's report for my laryngochondroplasty was posted to my chart today. I pored through it eagerly relishing the details of every blade stroke, and looking up some of the medical jargon. I was feeling pretty good until I got to the part where it said "Prominent thyroid notch. Removed this to just above Montgomery's tubercle. Minimal to no prominence with skin redraping." Wait, what? I looked up Montgomery's tubercle. Dr Google says it's the goosebumps that surround the nipple on the areola! There must be two Montgomery's who were pretty hot back in the day and got a body part named after them, cuz there's no way they scraped cartilage all the way down my breastbone! LOL

I take Glucosamine daily. Also, I wear gloves when using detergents. Rub lotion or oil into the nails so don't dry out. Good luck and Happy Birthday, Jamie.

Take biotin. It also helps with hair growth and strength.  Other than that, welcome to the challenges all women face.  Growing up pretending to be men, we use our hands differently, without much care for our nails so you have decades of muscle memory to change in order to protect them.  I do acrylics because they are like Wolverine's claws- damn near unbreakable.  My nail tech gets so frustrated with me because I tell her I want them really short ( I can't get use to long nails- to restrictive). I tell her I just don't want to have to constantly "fix" them from all the work my hands tend to do without regard to my manicures lol.

She sees it as a waste. lol.  "don't you want them to be pretty" she always says.  

I also like them because I use to have a habit of chewing my nails and you can't do that with acrylics. At least not easily. lol

I tell people I need to keep my nails short because I'm really, really gay. They stop asking after that.

Weird.

It is kind of weird. I’ve tried googling Montgomery’s tubercles in the context of the trachea but can’t find anything. There are other tubercles named after someone whose name begins with a Z. I’ll ask the surgeon next week in my postop who wrote the report!

Weird, indeed. I swear, Doctor Speak is designed to be confusing, illegible or both!

I found it fascinating to read about how they pulled this muscle aside and cauterized that thingy and tattooed something else to mark the limits and then used a #15 blade to make an incision. OHSU is a teaching hospital and they had a resident helping the surgeon. I’m not sure exactly what his role was. Maybe he wrote the report? They were both MDs. OHSU called me a couple of weeks ago and said the procedure cost $21,000 but not to worry, my copay was only $300.

Reports are dictated and then transcribed. Left over from the days where Dr's handwriting was a required course lol.  Lots of room for error with transcription

Back in January I finally succumbed to a n overwhelming urge to paint my nails and walked around the house with them for a couple of days before my middle daughter did a double take on them. Which was the launching pad for my introduction to my family as Agnes. I kept them painted for a couple of months. But then I started looking at womens hands and noticed that a great many didn’t bother to paint them or did so only for special occasions. It really is a lot of work to maintain the exterior. It’s not like I need to attract a mate or something. It’s mostly to feel pretty for myself. Aside from some big male tells like facial hair, Adam’s apple, and bushy eyebrows which can be fixed, I’m more concerned about the inner woman and feeding and nurturing her at this stage.

      I really liked that, Ticket! Now I'm looking up more of her music...

      I waver and waffle, but I usually wind up on the right side of the hill by the end. I suppose it's a combination of letting myself feel the feelings, then taking steps to move forward. Sometimes it's journaling about my feelings and tracking them back and forth in words. Sometimes it's having a conversation with a friend or my wife. Sometimes it's a nap. When things are really bad, I think of my wife and kids and how much I love them and how I would march through fire for them.

      Welcome Laura Marie! Glad you're here. I stopped to think what my life was like in 1992. It wasn't transitioning, I was deep in the corner of a dark closet, with a lot of self hate & denial. How did you come to accept you as you? Was there any support?   Hugs! Delcina

      I am having a difficult time with this hiding. So I think I am going to start pushing my boundaries. This week I came out to a friend at work. He is supportive and told me he is available if I need to talk. I then spoke to my brother and he and his wife now know. They both told me that they still love me and though they do not understand that this is about my happiness and they want me to be happy. I plan on talking to my sister soon. Then the hard part will be talking to my son, he worries me the most but this must be done. Then i will start to look at work. I would like to be full time by the end of this summer.   Done hiding!    ~Rachel

      Well had a good feeling today. Our apt is about 50 yrds from the parking lot. It is a PIA. SO today I am walking out to do some work on the wagon. Get her ready for the road trip tomorrow.   I notice that my pony tail is bouncing as I walked. Just like a girls does. I made me feel great.   Kymmie

      Hi it's nice to meet you
    • Artpetal
      I'm naturally a happy person and it's only the bad things that have made me more timid over the years. It's easy to be happy and it's difficult (with a -cult) to be upset...

      I forgot to mention. Second day on my new job. Yesterday was all paperwork, today was all over the plant. Introduced to everyone as Hannah, and she this, her that. So awesome. Then I found out that my name badge can't have Hannah on it until I legally change my name. Not what I was initially told.😟 It actually didn't hit me all that hard at first, until I was introduced to a couple of folks in the same job who had their name badges hanging on their shirt pockets. Got kinda triggered.😬
