@MmindyYou look like you could use a few more hugs. I have plenty for you. ❤️❤️

Thank you, I’m really lucky that the main pinch point of my fall under the prop was behind my knee, and the size of my calf muscle kept me from sustaining a terrible knee injury.

 

Proud congratulatory hug for you and your name change.

Thanks, everyone, for the congrats. Still on Cloud 9, but on my walk to burn off excess nervous energy, I tried to sabotage it all by taking it down to Cloud 8. While it should be by the end of the month, we still don't have the final date for our divorce. The name change has no effect on any of the divorce stuff, but I tried to convince myself to feel guilty about the timing for my wife's sake. I guess I'm still only about 98% on "It's my life." And she actually told me that during our meeting last weekend. I'm getting there.

Houses are selling in three days for $50,000 - $100,000 over asking price!  So if we see a place we like, we can't make an offer conditional on financing or on selling our current house.  We have to be able to move fast.  Hence the pre-approval.

 

 

Things are chilling out in the DC area. still a seller market but they aren't getting those inflated offers anymore. Too many buyers dropped out of the market and inventory is sitting longer, almost 3 weeks on average now.  It was a rapid turn. Price will slowly go up but probably at only a 6% year or year level (according to realtor.com's latest numbers yesterday)

Good morning everyone.

@Hannah Renee Congratulations on the name change. The process in our state is a little weird but at least changing your gender marker is easy peasy.

 

@MmindyI'm sorry to hear about your mishap and thankful you're, more or less, OK.

 

I know I've been pretty quiet here for a while. I've had a LOT of traumas surfacing. Thankfully, my GT actually specializes in trauma and since I'm in a holding pattern with my transition right now we decided to switch gears. I've come to find out that I'm full of automatic trauma responses. Just the simple action of my supervisor calling me into his office fills me with anxiety and triggers a fight or flight response. Just normal, everyday things are setting me off and I can't keep going like this anymore. It's going to be a long and emotionally painful process but it needs to be done. I can't keep running from my problems.

Good morning, everyone.

 

I didn't sleep too hot last night (nightmares galore!). And my husband has me worried because he's panicking over the Supreme Court ruling and is having conversations with his parents that don't involve me at all...even though I'm the subject of the conversation. It's making me a little uneasy. I know he's worried and doesn't want me to worry, but he doesn't realize that by not including me in the conversation, it's making me worry. I tried telling him that and he just changed the subject.

I'm so sorry you're going through that, Elizabeth. As someone with CPTSD, I can certainly relate to having automatic trauma responses. You are doing the right thing by seeking treatment. I wish you the best of luck! ❤️

@Elizabeth StarI had to go in person (which I preferred anyway) since that e-file system is so convoluted. Being in a small county helped that process.

 

I'm sorry you're having to go through all this stress. I also know that you are a woman of strength, and you will get through this.

 

Hugs

@Mmindy I'm so glad you're thoroughly taking care of yourself. I hope you heal soon. Consider getting some arnica cream which helps with inflammation and bruising. 

 

@Hannah Renee CONGRATULATIONS! 

 

I feel for you @Elizabeth Star & @NashySlashy . It's not easy. Speaking from personal experience, (C)PTSD can be painful & quite a nuisance, frankly, for every day functioning. I was walking on the beach with my friend two days ago. We stopped to sit on a concrete slab. There was a backhoe driving back and forth, raking piles of seaweed. The driver seemed to be positioning the truck to drop the rake/hoe thing as close to the concrete slab as possible, but instead slammed it down on the slab. My friend and I both screamed. I felt extremely light headed, as if I stood up too quickly x10, but I was sitting. I felt so sick from the sudden rush of adrenaline - I was trying to collect myself, but kept seeing stars be felt sick. I commented to my friend, well there goes all my cortisol for the day. Next day (yesterday) I was in bed half the day - just had no energy. I did manage to make it to choir rehearsal last night, and I'm doing a bit better today.

My morning so far:

 

Woke up at 5:30 feeling nauseous. Not great, considering what else was in store. My wife is having a colonoscopy, so my older daughter took her. Dropped my younger daughter off at school, then headed to my wife's house. I am watching my youngest, along with a friend's 22 year old son with severe CP, 2 goldfish, a guinea pig that my older daughter wanted and now ignores, a foster dog, foster chicken and duck, and my younger daughter's ferret, because she'll be staying here for the holiday helping her sister take care of the friend's son, because the friend is out of town again and my wife is leaving tomorrow to visit her TG friend in Taos. (How's that for a run-on sentence?)  Heck, she doesn't have to go that far - I'm only 25 miles away. Guess I'm not her friend. Maybe I can spice things up with her by telling her I filed for my name change. Sorry. I'm in a peculiar mood today.

Sitting at the side of the road in a dead car, waiting for a tow. I mentioned in another thread that I've come to like lavender. So here we are.

Wow,  @Mmindy get well soon.

 

@Hannah Renee congratulations on the name news.

 

@Bri2020  the Myrtle Beach market still appears to be pretty hot.  Fastest growing area.  We just moved in and the theoretical value is up about $40k.

 

three more buildings and they are done.  They have barely started on the next building.  It’s on the other side of the parking lot from ours.

 

I did not go to group this evening.  Traffic is bad and roads are wet so not a good travel day.

Well got a message from our realtor. the current owner has signed a contract on another house. Yea, now just have to wait till the closing date. Come on July 29th.

 

I am wondering if I will have my own bathroom in our new house. the master bath has a shower. and the other bathroom has the tub and shower. Being my wife and youngest most of the time take a bath. I wonder if I will have the master bath to myself.

Just after I got the good news I texted my wife. It was before noon. I had to ask her while out at dinner if she got it. over 6 hours later. I don't know what is going on with her. Does she want to move or not? She has complained about this place for over 5 yrs especially when recertification time comes. I just wonder what she has on her mind, about the house.  She doesn't seem to thrilled at the idea of getting one.

Is she expecting me to pay all the housing bills. like I do now. while she seems to always have money to burn. While I don't know bit I think she has about 4-5k in her savings. I know she has her retirement from her other job, and the reissued xmas check from her father I never saw. She calls it her Lincoln fund. She actually took 500 out of it to help pay the ernist money.

 

I'll tell you that if the SHTF with us. I have no qualms of just up and leaving her the house. 

 

Well I hope everyone has a good weekend. Of course I have to work.

 

I'll be checking in.

Good early morning

 

The NWS woke me up at 5am when they issued a Tropical Storm Warning for our area.  Gee last night it was only 10% chance it would produce any more than rain and maybe a thunderstorm.  
 

@KymmieL I’m sorry you are going through all this trauma.  None of us deserve to be treated like this, but many are.  I know more who have than who haven’t unfortunately.  
 

I could use a refill on my coffee.  Who’s hosting today?  Oh I guess I am.   I need to make a pot so everyone can enjoy a cup.  Any volunteers to bring the donuts?  maybe some Jersey blueberries?

 

If the rain doesn’t cancel it, the COA is having an ice cream social this afternoon.  Looking forward to that.  Our first social gathering/meet and greet.

 

hugs

 

Willow

Good morning Hannah,

Lavender is my fragrance of choice these days.

I hope the car troubles are minimal, and your house/kid sitting went well.

Well, as far as the car is concerned, it has actually been a dead piece of metal sitting just off my wife's driveway for the past month or two. It had already been replaced for actual usage, so we just wanted to sell it and recoup our money from previous repairs. "Probably only needs a new alternator." Yeah, definitely needs one, along with a radiator (didn't we just have work done on that in March?). Oh, and the chassis is rotting out from underneath it. Buh-bye.

      I've been inspired to count clean and sober days.  I got a 24 hour coin and triangle necklace.  I've been listening to Elton John lately.  I started counting days from my 30 year Navy anniversary.  I like the idea of celebrating 50 years since joining the Navy and 20 years fully clean and sober on the same day.  It's good to have goals, right?   Whether I'm truly an addict is an issue I struggle with.  My lifelong best friend definitely is an addict.  I come from a long line of alcoholic gamblers on my father's side.  Thankfully, my father started recovery through AA before I was born and then gave me a good education in it while I was doing drugs in high school.  That definitely slowed down my alcohol and drug use.   My friend has struggled with AA for decades and he is still in active addiction.  I think it is critical to have a good home environment to get clean and sober.  I don't think the people he is living with are using much, but it certainly is not a functional household.  I've been very protective of my home environment.  I guess I'm writing you about all this because I might feel like a bit of an AA imposter being around him.  I do credit AA with the successes I've had over addiction and I'm starting to show a little pride in that.   OK, I've got a real question in this post...  Do you think there is value in hiding my AA pride from my friend?  I certainly don't want to cram it down his throat.  But after actively coming out as transgender, I have a clearer picture of what it is like to hide.  Hide/pride.  There is both a positive and negative side to pride.   When I got my 24 hour coin, I looked at it and said "spiritual progress, not spiritual perfection."  I love the To Thine Own Self Be True and the serenity prayer on them.  It really is a good token.   On a side note, my father stayed clean and sober for the rest of his life, but he continued his gambling addiction.  It was a real turn off for me, so I've stayed away from gambling.  In a few years here, I'll be in the position of having money to invest and I'm realizing that the gambling aspect of investing is a total turn off for me.  I think I'd rather work another year or two to cover the interest I might have gained by investing.   -Lydia

      Baseline audits are a normal thing for charities and the ones I was involved with as an auditor usually came up with nothing worse than that a former signatory for bank checks had not been removed from the account after the signatory had died in office or that bank receipts were not being turned into bookkeeper although the funds were showing on the bank statement, thus the statement showing too much money (the minutes of the organization were also quiet on the transactions because of that too.)  Nothing evil or felonious just carelessness corrected by a thorough review and admonishment.       A case where some POTENTIAL for harm exists, and a demand for ZERO potential for it by depriving ALL beneficiaries.  😵 😵  Even on these forums we know that some forms of binding carry the possibility of harm and we have done our best to recommend against those actions.  This is a matter between the Trans Man and their supportive medical team and NOT some busybody in the neighborhood who read The Daily Mail's scare piece on it.

      Hi y’all   Some time back my wife and I were in a fabric store together.  She is making a baby quilt for a friend of ours and was looking for backing fabric.  Any way I asked if she would help me pick a fabric and pattern and teach me to sew.  I thought it fell of death ears.  Then last night she shows me a pattern, what do you think of these?  Then we talked about the cost of making versing buying ready made.  The only savings would be a nicer fabric and multiple pairs off the same pattern.  Today she found where she could get the pattern.  Sounds like she is really making an effort for me.   😀willow

      The problem for some healthcare providers is that there have not been many studies clearly demonstrating superiority, however, it can be very useful. I have been on progesterone in addition to injections starting 1 month after I started estrogen. The key is the micronized progesterone. I had put out a few references regarding progesterone. The reality is that cisgender women have both during their developmental years and through middle adulthood. It makes sense to just mimic nature.  I will try to dig up those research articles. I found the same elevation in estrogen levels and reduced testosterone with progesterone. Progesterone suppresses gonadal androgen production.

      @Heather ShayWhat are you doing up so late, dear? Me too. Great trio of tunes you selected to post, Most people know Simone as a great singer, but listen to that piano—whew! And those three must be proofs of God's existance—it's about 30 billion light years to the next trio that good.  Hugs, Davie

      I don't know about Mermaids but, having in the past been closely involved with a somewhat smaller charity run by volunteers, I can attest that there is often very little knowledge of the law, even with respect to charities. It's only the big charity concerns who will likely have good legal support on their boards. In the most part they have no intention of breaking the rules but, as we know, ignorance is no excuse.   Tracy

      I don't wear male clothing anymore, because I packed it all the good stuff ready to be given to others and thrown away all the stuff that looks second hand.  I wear dresses more often than not, mostly because they equate to less weight and space in my backpack - practicality, I ride a bicycle to and from work.  Length of time since last wearing an outfit plays a pretty big part in my choice of outfits to wear. PS.  For a special night out, I always wear one of my prettiest dresses.  Dressing down would spoil the night.

      https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-63837761   I have no idea if these issues are legit, but I won't be shocked if they are.  Many charities run afoul of laws and regulations, and that would include those that assist and support trans people.  We'll see what happens.   Carolyn Marie

      I think we all want to belong and this is why labels exist, so I've labeled myself as Transfeminine here.  I suspect the vast majority of people have a mind that has both masculine and feminine characteristics.  For some, like myself the picture significantly favors feminine.   I completed a questionnaire that lead to a gender coordinates map about a month after finding out that I was born with a female.  From memory my score was 8/20 for masculine, 17/20 for feminine.  I trust the result because the questions were so obscure that I couldn't imagine gaming it.  I wonder what my score would be now that I've started HRT.
    • Trans22
      Pretty scary, I seem to inflict an ouch moment on my breasts/nipples several times a day - never intentionally.  I was hoping it might only last a few months.  Oh well, focus on the rewards at the end of my journey - taken same approach with the roller-coaster ride of electrolysis.
    • Trans22
      I often cried myself to sleep then dreamed about being a woman.  I've cried myself to sleep then dreamed about my life ending far more often.   I cannot remember the last time either situation has happened, thankfully.
