@Betty_B, sorry to hear this.    I've lost 2 sisters and my brother to cancer and ALS.  I'm the only one left now.   It's a weird feeling, and sad.

Hi everyone 

 

@Betty_B I am sorry to hear about your sister.  Cancer is a terrible thing.  I’ve lost several family members to it, father in law, mother in law, sister and the worst of all my granddaughter.  It’s never easy to loose a family member and in your case the last person you felt you had that you could freely talk to.  I’m so sorry.

 

weatherwise it is supposed to be rainy off and on today. I have moving things I need to do.  Coffee hot, black and gone.  No more today!  I do wish caffeine free drinks were more readily available.  I have discovered that caffeine can trigger headaches for me.  Leaves me with water, which is good for you but tasteless, or lemonade.  I don’t care for fountain dispensed lemonade.  And some just put way too much sugar in it.  Yes, I do realize I live in the south where they mix a little bit of tea in the sugar and call it ice tea instead of sugar.

 

we stopped at a local farmers stand yesterday.  I picked out a ready to eat cantaloupe.  Boy is it good.  Locally grown so it isn’t picked green is always the best.

 

except that it is 4th of July weekend and boating will be ridiculous I wouldn’t mind taking the boat off shore for some sailing.  The predicted weather is for moderate wind and 5 foot waves.  My boat handles 5 foot waves like a Cadillac. When they are on open water.  But I’m not going out on the river to get to the ocean with all the revollers and drunks that will be ignoring the rules for of the water.  Coast Guard and SCDNR will be out to try to stop them but someone will get killed.

 

well I guess I should get ready for my day.  
 

until later

Good morning!

 

I'm currently at work and freezing my tail off LOL. AC is maxed out in the office building. Thankfully I have a blanket with me. :)

At any rate, to anyone who needs to hear it, I LOVE YOU. I may not know you irl, but I know that you feel the same things I do, and that is enough common ground for me to feel that for you. 

Vidanjali,

 

It is real love of like people, that is so important. I have an empathetic heart/soul that allows me to love people of all walks of life. I do have a close feeling with people who I've only known through correspondence, such as this wonderful place we know as TransgenderPulse.com 

 

I believe when someone takes the time to write or video respond to your specific situation, there is a connection of compassion. We don't have to meet in real life to develop a bond. The problem with an open empathetic heart is that hateful words and messages hurt deeply too.

 

Many of us share digital hugs on this forum, and I contend digital HUGS are still from the heart.

 

You are valued, worthy, and loved,

I have like 2 hours to turn a girls home into something that isn't going to raise 11,000 eyebrows.  I've always lived in what could only be described as spartan decor and furnishings but since my egg cracked I've gone full Martha Stewart. 

I wouldn't purge or hide to much, this may be the opening of more than your egg. This could be the beginning of your new sisterhood. Martha Stewart Living was always projected to me as gender neutral.

 

Since I'm 23 hours late in responding to this, I hope you're doing well.

@Betty_B sorry to hear about your sisters diagnosis. Cancer is a hard thing. My father in law has lung, kidney and spine cancer.  I know that it is weighing on my wife. She hasn't said it but I can tell. With my wife's denial of getting common tests done. She could have it too. I guess I'll never know until it is too late.

 

About 58 on the fencometer. overcast and gloomy. I hope it clears up. I need to get the driver window fixed on our 2 door crown vic.

 

I guess it is going to be a coffee and relax day. May even do some work on a model project I haven't touched in a month.

 

Hugs

Betty B,

 

I so sorry to here about your sister, and know you will be there for her as she battles cancer.

Having a physical shoulder to hug and cry on, is so important. You will be that shoulder for her. Although we are in the digital world here, you will always have a place to vent, cry, and be loved.

Good morning everyone,

 

The coffee is Dark Silk, HOT, strong and black.

It is a slow morning for me as I'm nursing a bruised leg after on of my props fell on me yesterday morning. I was rolling it up my driveway to prepare it for delivery, when a caster pad broke off causing it to roll over catching my leg underneath it. Fortunately the center of gravity allowed it to settle in the other direction when it came to rest. My wife was outside tending the front yard flowers and heard me swearing like a sailor, which I very rarely do. I save my swear words for the most important times, and this was one of those times. She rushed to me, and asked how she could help. I asked for her to get my roll around shop stool, and my first aid bag from inside. After self examination, I determined that my knee joint was still in tact and functioning without intense pain. She dusted me off, and wrapped an ice pack to the area with the most intense pain. I made it to a chair and foot stool on the front porch, and asked for her to get my bottle of over the counter pain relief. (pill form not liquid) I mass dosed it, along with a bottle of water. After sitting for 40 minutes to give the ice pack and pain relief a chance to kick in, I began to contact my business partner, fabricator, and customer that we had a problem. My business partner, and fabricator both prioritized that I take care of myself. My customer is okay with a delay in delivery, due to unforeseen issues with their prop, and what I said was a quality control issue.

 

I continued to self medicate with ice and pill form pain relief throughout the day. This morning I have only slight tenderness in my calf, knee, and thigh with a bruise running from just above my ankle all the way up past my knee. The darkest part of the bruising on the side of my knee is still very tender to the touch. I'm able to slip on a compression legging, and alternate warm and cold compresses to the area. I still have full range of motion of my knee without any pain, just don't touch it. I also dropped back the dosage of my over the counter pain relief. 

 

Hugs for all,

      I fully agree that this is best discussed with the child's parents.  It may also be something more important to you really than the child. In my early day's I had one young child that way in my life and comments of that nature were just the child's way of showing interest and concern in me.

      Thanks to all my family here on TP. You are the best. @Mmindythat would be great for all of us to have coffee, together. we would have to warn were ever we went to make sure they had enough coffee for us.   @Willow Happy Birthday, my girlfriend.   Hugs to you all.   Kymmie

      I've been devoting time lately to my late-in-life hobby: an on-line radio station. I spent 13 years in the industry back in the 80s and early 90s, both out on the air and in copywriting and production. In terms of audience, I'm pretty much targeting people close to or in my age group. I think the scientific term is "fossils".   I'm getting positive feedback from this toy of mine. It turns out that when you do something just for fun it can impact people in a positive way. Who knew?

      Hello,   One of my best friends has an autistic 11-year-old. I have known them for about seven years. When I transitioned 18 months ago, the child had questions about the new situation. I explained things as best as I could and answered every question. They have had no problem adjusting to my new name or my new pronouns.   But they have repeatedly made comments in my presence like "when is she going to sound like a woman?"   I have had two conversations about this topic previously with her. I tried "well, I have been speaking this way for fifty years and it has been very hard to change." Then I tried "not all women have to sound a certain way in order to be women." Neither has been effective. Is there another line I am not thinking of that will be clearer? Or is this just going to be an eternal thing?   I do not feel my attempts at voice feminization have been very successful, so when I am among friends I often don't try very hard. I am not angry when they make these comments, but it does hurt a little when I am reminded of the fact that I am 'different' than other woman in their eyes.   I intend to discuss this more with their parents, but I wanted to get any tips from y'all before I do so.   thanks in advance!

      While the Los Angeles area is much safer than many areas, even we have our problems from time to time.  No direct evidence in this case, and maybe none ever, but the Holiday Season with parties in many welcoming and supposedly safe places have a problem with  "Date Rape" drugging/  A Trans friend of mine whom @Carolyn Marie may know or at least know of was the victim of that a year ago. The person is a survivor but is still dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of the experience.  I am there for the person, but they are having a tough time still.  Please be careful about who you are with and what is happening to you.  Make sure there are several people with you and that all of you have each other's backs.

      @KymmieL, I'm sorry for your loss. It's sad to lose a family member; so sad that mere words aren't adequate. It's especially hard during this time of year. You and your family will be in my prayers. May you all find the comfort and healing you need during your tie of grief.
