The really good news is that, while payroll has to be in my legal name, I will be called Hannah, and my time card and my NAME TAG will have HANNAH.

That will be nice

Princess Leia is close but not quit.

 

This is what I have so far. It still needs some tweaking and I will most likely be wearing a lot less underneath it. I feel the skirt need more personality, maybe I'll make it asymmetrical.

So gooood evening.  Think Boris Karloff 

 

We've been in the ER since about 2p.m.  it's now 8:45.  My wife Finally got seen about 7:30. The vampire just left with her blood. Why would be TMI so not going there.  Haven't eaten since  noon.

 

The condo is looking good. I can finally see the light at the end of this year long tunnel. We signed our letter of Intent last May. Initial deposit in June. Contract stated closing in October.  Seven months late.  8 months on the boat.  They haven't even started the next building and there are three yet to be built. Washer and dryer ordered with delivery scheduled for June 1st.

Hannah, I agree.

 

Looking good, Liz.

 

Well a good couple days, Yesterday, Went and got O2 added to my C-pap machine. Got it hooked up today. Will see if it helps any. Also, Yesterday. Had my hearing checked. Yeah, I'm deaf. HUH, What did you say? So getting hearing aids. I guess I am just falling apart piece by piece.

 

This morning had my legs waxed for the first time. An experience but the little pain didn't bother me, and I am a girl when it comes to pain. Wait a minute, I am a girl anyways. LOL. Going to look at a house tomorrow. Seems nice in the pictures and from the front. Good sized back yard for the grandkids, dogs, my wife's Lilacs, her cactus. and of course. I may be able to do a garden railway. First things first. liking the house and getting the house.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

This is very good news Hannah, congratulations.

Once you have your name legally changed there shouldn't be any trouble with your payroll change over.

I like the ties. I don't know why it never occurred to me to do that, I always used links. You're right about the skirt though, it's kind of blah the way it is. Some kind of shape to it would definitely be better.

 

Hugs!

Well dang. Now I’m sad that I’m going to miss Pride this year. I would agree with taking the skirt asymmetrical. Maybe a fringe under the top?

Good morning everyone

 

 130 am coffee in hand already 😖

 

sitting here trying to figure out why my daughter would drive 450 miles to the beach where  i live and only visit once for 15 min,

as far as the great grand children , looks like i will never get to meet them ever ,  sad, hurt that doesn't even come close to explain  the feelings i have over this , i cant do this any longer , not sure how im going to crawl out of this funk the hole has gotten so deep, in the end just  cutting  ties to all in my past life and just go forward alone seems all thats left for me to do ,

 

I could just cry ,, i am crying , life is just not worth living  some times

How could I have forgot the most important thing. My GYN who is monitoring my transition. Has increased both my Spiro and my E.

 

Betty, so sad that your daughter has done this. While she may have given up on you right now. You are still her parent, and one day she may surprise you.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

It went pretty good. I have to get a second letter from my HRT provider and a mammogram. Then a 6-8 month wait.

It's funny you should say that 'cause that's how I usually would have done it too.  Using as many links as possible.

If I can get my insurance figured out, my therapist and my HRT provider (at HB) have already told me they would write letters. I, too, have an endocrine disorder. Do you think that you could get the letter to reflect GD if that's what your insurer requires?

I'm so sorry for you.  I don't understand how some people can be so cruel.

 

I have a daughter in Wilmington that I haven't seen in several years.  We do text occasionally though.  It's a long drive, but I would go if she invited me.

Betty, I know how hard it cuts into our hearts when family rejects the real person we need to be. I hope you are able to see the the difference between sometimes and always. Please look for the good in your immediate surroundings and know you are valued, worthy, and loved. Just as you are. 
 

While we’re separated by miles, our situation is similarly close.

 

Hugs and Good Morning,

I'm just catching up after about a 5 day hiatus. My thoughts are with all of you.

I was at a women entrepreneur retreat with 14 of us staying at a massive "summer home" of one of the DuPont family that was converted to a retreat center. Started on Monday. By the time we left Thursday it was clear we had a covid problem.  We are up to 8 out of 14 people testing positive or sick.  Including me.  I feel like -crap-. Just as bad, I'm missing the opera performance I have been looking forward to and had to cancel my electrolysis trip to Chicago.  All of us were boosted. I'm double boosted.  I think the virus is winning the war on immunization vs mutations.

The CORONA virus mutates pretty rapidly and our response was pretty lackluster. Honestly I think this is going to end up being one of those things that mutates and just becomes part of our viral landscape like colds or the flu.

 

In other news, I've got the ick and I've been coughing up mucus for the last couple of days. My voice went away on the day I was supposed to have my job interview. I was game to try anyway, but the department head says I need to be able to talk. Hopefully I'll be good to go by Monday.

 

Hugs!

It certainly looks that way.  I haven't had the 2nd booster.  Don't know if I can get it.  The VA hasn't said anything.  I'm definitely over 65 tho.

Hi

 

@Bri2020 wow even double boosted and you got it.  I guess that tells me I need to be more careful in public.  I haven’t worn a mast except at medical appointments since they were lifted.  
 

@Jackie C. I guess you are unfortunately right.  This is just going to keep on mutating and will become the new norm.  At least the flu and pneumonia even shingles are controlled if you are willing to take the shots.  I have no issue getting poked.  Heck I poke myself every two weeks.  I really don’t understand the anti Vaxers.  If they have a history of problems, so be it, but to fight the idea of getting the vaccine just because.?  
 

oh well.  I hope you get over it really quickly with no long Covid problems.

That's a good question. The letter from my therapist has a GD diagnosis on it but yeah, HB (same place I'm using) has my HRT under the same "endocrine disorder". Surly they know and have work around for it.

That's partly why I went with them, under the assumption that it would make things easier. My therapist actually told me about them. And the PA that I see is fabulous.

Our group of covid has reached 9 now with another 2 saying they will probably test positive in a day or two based on how they feel.

3 days in I can't break this fever. Advil/tylenol round the clock and I can only get it down to 99. The body aches have diminished at least. I've been having to change my nightshirt in the middle of the nights due to soaking them in sweat.  I didn't think this would kick my butt like it is. Everyone I know that caught it before and had boosters basically just felt run down for a day or two or didn't have any symptoms. I have a very busy week ahead that's going to have to be rearranged.  Lots of interviews for real estate brokerages plus I'm supposed to interview 2 people for my business.

I think not only can COVID affect different people very differently, but the same is likely true for vaccines.  One of my son's friends was at our house and collapsed on his way to the bathroom. Breathing was not an issue, but the possibility of concussion was. I spent between 5 and 10 minutes with him, practically in his face. This was well before I was able to get my first poke, and I'm in the high risk group. He tested positive for COVID the next day, but I never had any issues.

 

FWIW, my current soon-to-be ex-wife has been working as a school nurse for several years. The standard for keeping a child out of school for a fever is 100.4+. So even though you still feel like (bad word of your choice), 99 is certainly acceptable. Get well soon and go out and continue to kick ***.

 

Hugs

Hannah

      Hi @Purple8. Welcome. Yes, I identify with your feelings. I think it is tough to "find" yourself when you identify as somewhere in the middle, such as non-binary. It's a process that for me, took time, and reflection, and writing about it and, yes, talking to a gender therapist, too. You're doing great by finding this TGP site. Keep coming. We're here all night. 💜 -- Davie

      You are in a pretty common place with a lot of us here.  We are not Gender Counselors, but almost all of us have been through Gender Counseling  and found that it really helped us.  When we tell the rest of the world that we are not their idea of what we should be and are going to be our own self, it can be a bit rough, but it is freeing.

      Hello everyone! I am a 32 year old person who was assigned male at birth. Generally fine with the pronouns he/they. Most of my life I have identified as a cis-man but lately have been really questioning how much that truly describes who I am. Throughout my life I have always had discomfort when I’ve been grouped with guys or asked to do things because I am a “man.” When I was a kid in school and I would be grouped with the boys I would always feel out of place. I used to justify this feeling because I’m gay and most of the boys I knew growing up were straight. Even as an adult now I feel pretty alien generally when I am around a group of typically straight men. As an adult I find myself pretty comfortable presenting pretty “masculinely.” But I still find myself experiencing a lot of friction when people have certain perceptions or expectations of me because of that presentation. And recently I have had interactions with a guy where while we were together he complimented how masculine and manly I was which felt incredibly uncomfortable to me. Which, has now lead me to self reflect and I feel I truly don’t relate to the terms masculine or manly other than my very surface level presentation. I also don’t consider myself really feminine. Though I do feel that with whatever feminine traits or qualities I do have, I really enjoy when those are complimented or affirmed. I definitely don’t identify as a woman, though. A couple weeks ago I finally was just like “maybe I am non-binary” and once I sat with that for a second and I realized I could just remove myself from having to wear the label of “man”, I felt as though a giant weight was being lifted off of me and it felt pretty amazing. So this is still very new for me. I’m still exploring this and have so far enjoyed the journey. Though, I do have a kind of imposter syndrome feeling as I still currently really am fine and enjoy presenting more masculinely (however sometimes with a little queer flair.) Really for me it’s mostly dealing with the general discomfort I feel from people’s expectations of me because they look at me and think “man.” Anybody with similar experiences?

      As overwhelming as it has been for you, I am glad you did it and found out so you can work toward the future of your life.  The anomalies make you simply you, but a you who now can be even more yourself.  I know that sounds complicated, but it is a happy thing.

      @DonkeySocks I can understand the anxiety around extended family. I don't see most of the people in my family very often, so I struggle to think of what is appropriate to tell them. Great to hear this!

      What a week.  I've been to appointment after appointment, and scared half to death.    It started out as a routine exam with an ObGyn in a larger city who was advertised as being LGBTQ+ friendly.  Thankfully, she was.  During my physical exam she did a lot of looking at me, and feeling around.  I hate that part.  But she found something previous doctors had missed. A couple of somethings, and she was pretty concerned and sent me off to get blood tests, and an MRI the following day.  Couldn't get one the same day, so we ended up having to overnight in a hotel.  I don't do well with stress, and I was worried sick.   The next day - MRI.  My husband has thankfully had one before, and he knew I would be freaking out.  He was allowed in with me, and even with him calming me down I had to be somewhat sedated to get through it.  Tight spaces and loud noises are not my thing.  After that, waiting for the doctor to look at the results.  More worry.    I'm not only intersex, I'm a medical mystery.  My genes are normal - just like any cis female.  My anatomy is unique, but the weirdness is mostly internal.  Among more minor oddities is a fully-formed PROSTATE.  Dear God.  I don't get how I could have been born like that!  It was a first for the doctor also.  It took a while for her to analyze the images and get the test results. She was initially concerned that I had some kind of cancer, and that really made the whole experience worse for me.  At the moment, her thought is that any surgical transition attempt would be ill-advised.  Thankfully, I wasn't interested in pursuing that.  I'll probably have to watch things more carefully than the average human, but other than that I can just leave it alone since things function well enough.     I guess most rural doctors aren't even looking for something like this?  And now I wonder what this means for the rest of my life... 😢    
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      Not sure how much help there will be in your area.  Since you list your location as "Religious Hell" I'm guessing probably somewhere that may not be the most friendly.    I live in a conservative area in the rural southern USA.  About as religious as it gets.  If you don't live in a larger city (and where I live, we define that as 30,000 people or more) then I'd look for the one nearest to you.  There will be an office called "Labor Department" or "Division of Workforce Services."  Something like that, but to my knowledge every state will have one, with multiple offices in each state.  They are paid by the public to help people in all kinds of situations, including yours.    Offices like that offer multiple kinds of services, including building a resume, locating lost former employers, and counseling to help you adjust.  They do a lot of work with people who have immigrated for work visas, refugee/asylum, etc.  It is by no means the only solution, but it is a GREAT starting point.    One thing to note - lacking a CV may not really be a problem.  In the city near where I live, most employers don't really consider foreign employment experience to be "valid."  We're pretty provincial here.  You're basically starting from zero....and in your case that could help you if finding previous employment documents fails.    I don't know about your area, but in many places in the South there are a lot of job openings.  Good paying stuff - they'll practically take anybody who can read and write English and has a pulse.  My sister barely worked until recently.  She lived at home and attempted to write short stories for magazines (without making money.)  Now she works as a secretary, and got the job with only personal references and no resume.
