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.

Could make for an interesting sunburn.

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.

@Bri2020Oh dear!  sending loving "chicken soup good for the body and spirit" healing energy your way!  My parents were both real estate brokers and I've held licenses in two states while in my early 20's (seams like a lifetime ago now).  I'm so happy for you to be on your journey!  I'd TOTALLY pick you as my real estate agent if I was in your area!!!  Hang in there!

      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

      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.😬
