This has been me since before the holidays. Been down in the dumps. A lot of it is seeing my wife being ill so much this season.I decided last night to just get off my arse and get to work. 

Had to go to Walmart yesterday, 12 degrees plus strong wind. Was wearing workout attire, ankle socks, exposed ankles because I didn't have any womens boots. I bought some while shopping. I love these for $20. A little tight. A half size smaller than normal.

Have a great day everyone.❤️

These are kind of cute. I really need to get a pair of proper fitting winter boots. A friend gave me a pair of UGGS a few months ago but she actually has bigger feet than me, 12w, I wear an 11. Otherwise I just have a pair of beat-up, oversized duck boots for working outside.

Jamie I know passing matters to some and others just don't care.

I worried about passing so much it took me over a year to actually walk out the door dressed and that was at night walking to the mailbox.

Went 24/7 and its been my normal for a long time for over 20 years.

Do I pass you might ask?  I get called ma'am 99% of the time so I guess most of the time I do. Worrying about it wouldn't change anything.

I don't worry about it. It would be nice to hear someone actually call me ma'am. It hasn't happened yet.

 

It's -4 degrees here this morning. woke up to the furnace off and 55 degrees in the house. Condensate drain isn't keeping up. Have to turn off furnace for 5 min. every hour & let it drain. Pipes in laundry room frozen. I must have unplugged it when I installed new washer & dryer. Not exactly how I wanted to start out my day. It'll get better. At least the coffee is fresh and hot.

Good Morning, 

 

Last night I had a very vivid dream in which I was pregnant. I haven’t had coffee yet since I’m not sure how it is safe for my unborn child 😉

I think I would try to go back to sleep and find out.❤️

To be fair, I would ABSOLUTELY wear scrotum egg earrings out to the club. Maybe THAT would keep the jerks off me.

 

Hugs!

Good morning 

 

Thanks for all the chuckles this morning.  
 

Jamie, I’m sorry life took a left turn when it comes to your heater.  My daughter has a lot of trouble with her condensate pump as well.  But the way hers was installed, it doesn’t shut down the furnace, it just overflows on the floor.  They need to put alarms on those things.

 

speaking of pumps, Jandi, do you have a hand dug well or a drilled well?  Just curious how you are bucketing water when the pump won’t reach.  Glad the water level has risen enough to use the pump again.

 

Speaking of vivid dreams, I have the strangest dreams these days.  I never used to and I wonder if it’s a result of my antidepressants or HRT.  Some are recurring.  Anybody else having strange dreams have a clue as to why?

 

Yes, it is very reassuring to hear someone referring to you with ma’am or ladies when I’m with my wife.  Happens most often in a customer service situation like check out or waitstaff.  It tends to surprise me how frequent it happens here in SC since it tends to be an anti Trans state, so I guess I’m doing something right.  I do still get sir even though I am dressed, carrying a purse, wearing makeup etc.  I’ve learned to ignore it.

 

I too have a difficult time finding shoes that fit.  No one seems to carry larger than 11 med. we do have a place nearby called Mega Shoe Show that carries up to size 13 in women’s.  I can often find something there and occasionally at Walmart.  Sometimes the other shoe stores that carry off season over stock have the big sizes but you have to keep checking.

 

Have a great day and if you are where it’s snowing again stay safe.

It's like that here too, especially when you get away from the bigger cities.

When I do get ma'am-ed it kinda makes my day.

 

The well is old hand-dug type.  Some aspects of my life are from times past.  

Weirdly, I have both an outhouse and internet.

With our temperatures dropping into the single digits last night, I made sure to leave the bathroom vanity doors open, because it's the only outside wall with plumbing in it. I hope your frozen pipes thaw without any leaks.

 

Winter life,

I was going to call the earrings ear testicles but the other name popped in my head.

I do have the perfect top to match them. so they really are keepers.

I have that same kind of interference. Our orange tabby want's to cuddle in between my arms and the keyboard.

I'm definitely going to look for a set of "Acorn" earrings to match my western wear.

I was asked once why I wear women's clothing.

I replied....duh, ever try to find men's clothing in the women's section?

Erica, is a boy or a girl?

 

Sorry I haven't been on in a couple of days. I have been way under the weather. Don't think it is covid again. Just the flu. Started last Sunday. called in to work on Mom, felt better Tues and Wed so went to work. Wed night had an upset stomach.  Yesterday, runs, deep hacking cough, headache. Slept most of the day. probably do the same today.

My outdoor thermometer is reading 81!  However, it’s in the sun.  More like low 50s. When I finish my new instrument panel the thermometer will be part of it.  Then it will be in the shade all the time.   I have some new canvas tarps coming from Harbor Freight but they are somewhere in transit. FedEx Ground.  I hope they aren’t in a ditch some where.  Maybe they are stuck on I 95 in Virginia.  Boy do I hate driving that section of the interstate.  Even on a good day it’s all backed up at Fredericksburg.  They have no trucks left lane posted all along there but they don’t enforce it so the truckers use all three lanes and go as fast as they can until one of them does something stupid and blocks the road. What ever you don’t be on that road in the summer at closing time for Kings Dominion.

 

someone who was stuck there commented about walking on I 95 like it never happens.  We were stuck one time and the kids were out of there cars playing with a basketball.  Nothing unusual there.

 

@Jandi it does sound like you are well off the beaten path.  Outhouse, hand dug well but modern conveniences inside.  I’d say not my cup of tea but then I’m living on a boat and have to pump out my black water tank every other day into a portable camper tank. Then every other time I have to take that to a state park to dump it.  That can get pretty messy and smelly too.  At least I have fresh water.  Piped in or out of an onboard tank through a pressure pump.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of me living in a house I own! As for negatives, it is terribly cold here compared to the rest of the state, where it's generally warmer, and the house is on the older side. Until signing the contract, I had NEVER lived in a house before, and it was so hard spending time in apartments all my life. It's one of those cute houses where you go in from the backdoor and it has so much character, dating back to the 1700s, although part of it was added on in the 1900s.

@Willow When I lived on the gulf coast, Texas City, I had auto mechanics during senior year of high school.

I also worked at the car wash. When I graduated high school for a brief time(2 months) I worked

at a boat boat repair shop, mechanics and fiber glass and such, as an Apprentice. 

Then the military.

I've been on a lot of boats when I returned from over seas, but never really wanted to

work on them again. I took a new coastal path, go for the ride, get off the boat, and let someone else

do the hard work.

I'm reading all your posts on your boat project. Just don't know how to reply to them.

Good luck and best wishes on your project.

Artpetal, isn't life so much more relaxing when your neighbors are separated by a property line and not a couple inches of drywall. Congratulations on being a home owner.

 

Best wishes, stay positive, and safe

That's good.

My son is living in (and working on) one from the 1800's.  They've found all kinds of things in the walls while remodeling.

Mine, while primitive, is no where near that old.

Old houses do have a character to them that new ones seem to lack.  I think it's from generations of people living in them over the years.

In my house 5 of my children were born, and my mother passed in the room that is my bedroom now.  I have no idea of what went on here before we came.  

Interestingly, the Fort Fisher Hermit lived next door (place is long gone) before moving to the beach.

      Good morning   so much happened since my last visit and that was just yesterday.  Back to 4am today, off tomorrow my schedule bounces around all week but Friday morning I leave for my weekend of Lay ministry school.    let’s see, guy who wanted to see your DL, run away and block that one.  Doesn’t sound right to me. Sorry for your losses this week.  Always sad to loos a good friend they are so hard to come by, and same is true with cousins, although I never knew any of mine.     One thing I don’t have and never will is a LBD. Too old to do one any justice.  Besides where does one hide the 45?     Don’t meet a stranger without one!   well gotta try to walk the dog.  It’s raining but not cold.     and don’t take everything I say to heart.  Sometimes my sense of humor is a lot worse than I realize.  LOL   Willow

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sarah.  I think this site will live up to your expectations as a friendly, supportive and knowledgeable place.  I know that transition can be stressful and daunting and we've all been where you are now at some point.  I do hope that you are seeing, or have seen, a gender therapist or at least and M.D. to ensure that your hormone use is safe and appropriate.  We want everyone to be safe, because hormones can be dangerous if not done correctly with good supervision.  If you don;t have a gender therapist, that would be help to add to your tool kit, too.   Please ask any questions that come to mind.  The only thing we can't answer is about hormone dosages.  Please have a look around and enjoy your time here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      This one is not that far "off the wall." They just consider us mentally ill anyway.  We need to be corrected somehow - kinda like the Chinese do with the Uyghurs.  Time to break out the pink triangles.

      hi i guess this is where i tell you about myself and some goings on. my quick and dirty trans history about 20 off years ago I confessed to my best friend about wanting to be a girl she was super supportive said she'd get everyone to use whatever name I want and treat me like one of the girls at the time I didn't know transitioning really existed the LGBT was really just an LG so I didn't think it was actually possible to more than cross dress and dismissed the idea and forgot about until 6 years ago I met a transwoman in a Discord community which and awoken 20 year old memories, a few years later after self debate I admitted to myself that I was trans eventually came out to a few people and in October of last year started taking hormones. The actually transitioning is taking time I duelmode mainly being my true self at home for right now. How I ended up here: I wasn't prepare for the hormones which have been a struggle wild mood swings and just constant anxiety attacks, I've only recently been able to clear my head and quell my anxiety with medication enough to function. I had some bad moment and alienated myself from some people dear to me and I'm questioning whether to keep going or not. I've been doing a lot to improve my situation picking myself up doing self care but I realize I can't do this on my own so I've been adding to my support network, people in my circles, support groups and communities like here. From what I read so far this feels like a wonderful community and I look forward to being apart of it. Thank you

      All I can do is shake my head. This will be followed by the other 19 R states soon enough. They are more persistent than piranha. A few days ago I received an email from a recruiter trying to recruit me to a hospital in Oklahoma. I told them that I was a transgender female and would not consider Oklahoma. The recruiter could have cared less.   Sadly, I am not sure the rest of the public really cares what happens to us. There is going to be some massive pain down the road regardless of who wins the national election. I think the next logical move is that they will try to roll back the insurance coverages we gained with private insurers.   Short of a huge blue wave hitting the country, they have zeroed in on us. I just wonder if there will be Schutzstaffel troops coming to take us away. Seems like the only missing piece.

      Had fun and he was great to me treating me right.Loved the LBD I was wearing.I am much happier including him.Said he has found the right transgender woman in his life,me.

      Ivy, these folks are beyond psychotic. Make America Germany Already. You could not make this stuff up. I am waiting for an initiative to be launched requiring us to go to a re-education camp, and receive forced HRT of our birth gender. Sometimes there are no words that one can express...
