Ugh, I meant "Fremont, IN", not "Fremont, IL"!

🙁 I was all excited. Fremont, IL is like 20 minutes from me.

Happy Friday, everyone!

 

How's everyone's day going?

Okay, so far.  Baked bread and drank coffee.  And it hasn't gotten hot yet.

Unfortunately I need to take my car in for some repairs in awhile.

Good morning, storms expected today at some point 

 

@Heather Nicole as you drive past Fremont OHIO give it a wave for me.  That’s my home town, born and raised there.  Last time I visited was 9 years ago.  Said goodbye to my grandfather, parents and sister.  All are buried there.  When I left, I had no intention of returning.  Fremont is a great place to be FROM.  The home of President Hayes and the worlds largest Heinz ketchup factory among other things. 
 

You wouldn’t be going to Cedar Point would you?

 

Wife and I both had our last for now therapy appointments.  When she came home she was in a good mood smiling etc.  I figured things went well.  Later she we were at the pool and she said except for housekeeping this feels like being on a permanent vacation.  That was the point and we both feel that way.  For me I was also happy.  It was pre planned it would be my last appointment unless something set me back.

 

I made the coffee today.  Starring dark roast from Seattle.  I got it just right.  Lots to do today.  Drug store, new broker, same firm, get more things off our boat and out of storage. Lots going on


l hope everyone has a great weekend.  
 

Hugs

OK it's friday. And I'm nervous about tomorrow. Scared. The Big Trans picnic happens. Many trans folks I've grown to love online I'll see live for the first time. In person. I don't know what to wear. They tolerate me pretty well on screen, but in person I'll be the really old guy who won't shut up. They'll have to ask me to leave with looks of disgust and nausea. I'll have to change back into a cis male again and take my cheating ex back home. From there I'll join the French Foreign Legion and die defending colonialism and racism in a desert. Flies will buzz over my forgotten bones.

Or maybe it'll be a nice sweet picnic—not sure which.

Just thought I'd randomly toss this out there, but I don't suppose anyone's planning to be out around either Fremont, IL or Perrysburg/Toledo, OH (or Fremont, OH, for that matter) this coming weekend, on either Saturday or Sunday? I'll be passing through both those days to visit my cousin in Kalamazoo, MI.

I have a cousin in Kalamazoo

Tragically, I love on the other side of the state.

 

Enjoy your trip though!

That's pretty much my train of thought every time I have to socialize with people LOL.

 

But I think it will go well! Have fun and enjoy the tasty food and delightful company. :)

Right. Worst-case scenario would be to not show up at all based on fantasy-based self hatred. Better the Foreign Legion thing than nothing at all.

Well, I knew it was too good to be true. Looks like we may not be moving. The appraisal came in at $300 when we wanted to roll the closing in so we are looking for $310. I may have to bite the bullet and sell the bike. It will kill me to do it.

 

Well I snooped on my wife's phone. I now know where I stand with our oldest. I saw a text from him. "Hi, Mom. How are you doing. I love you" I have never gotten any texts like that from him. Oh, Well. I guess life will go on.  Another thing yesterday I was doing my normal morning stuff. When my youngest comes in. It seems like my wife's car has a flat he wants the jack stand out of the wagon. I guess that my wife doesn't think I would take care of it for her.  Again life goes on.

 

I wonder if she is at it again. I am working on doing a Holley Sniper fuel injection system on my wagon. I have finally picked up all the parts. But now I am missing my fuel pump, fuel filters, and a spool of 20ft of 3/8in fuel hose.  Nobody has seen it. I have checked everywhere but my wife's trunk. No sign.

 

hope everyone has a good day.

 

I'll try.

There seem to be a lot of Fremonts! And yea, unfortunately, Illinois isn't quite on the way from OH to MI. At least not the main part of MI anyway (Is that what they call it? The part that isn't Northern Michigan?) I'll just be clipping through a tiny corner of Indiana. (My gradeschool teachers would be so disappointed I still get IN and IL mixed up...Indiana's a neighbor, you'd think I could at least get that one right! 😜)

I have an aunt and uncle out near Pontiac. Unfortunately that won't be in the cards on this trip though, it's just a little more out of of the way than I'm going to have time for. ☹️

Yes, Fremont's nice! It's been close to 20 years for me, but I used to pass through all the time back when I went to BGSU. Coming from Cleveland, it was shorter and quicker to get off the turnpike at Fremont and take the back roads to I-75 than to go all the way to Toledo and have to drop back down south again.

Not this time 😭  Been awhile since I've been there. I'll be passing just south of it on the turnpike.

A Falcon?  My sister was a Falcon.  I’m a Rocket!  Sworn enemies.  LOL. Yes dropping off the turnpike and bypass Fremont then route 6 to Bowling Green is certainly the shortest way from Cleveland area.

Really? Wow, what I find even funnier about this is that UT was one of the schools my sister was considering back when she was looking into colleges! I remember being with her when she toured it, it's a nice campus!

Good Saturday morning.

 

@Heather Nicole the old portion of the campus is beautiful.  Then they tried to make it more modern. Since around 1967 they went to construction to match the University Hall.  Since UT started out as a City College they didn’t have the financial constraints that BG had when it came to architecture.  Many of the buildings, even the newer one received large donations from the Glass, automotive and other large companies in Toledo.   I’m class of 74.  It’s at least 3 times that now.

Well another potentially stormy day.  Safelight is supposed to replace our Jeep windshield this afternoon but they can’t do it if it’s raining.

 

we got a lot of our things off our boat yesterday.  I’m putting up a fan on the porch. And I need to get some more boxes out of storage before the rains come.  
 

Well the dog is asking to go out and my wife needs some attention today.  
 

hugs

Good morning. I'm already on my second cup of coffee.

 

Trying to figure out what all I need to do today. I definitely need to get my nails done. They're way to long and everyday tasks are a real struggle. I just don't know some women do it with super long nails. My riding mower has a dead battery. I had it out at one point and could hear the acid sloshing around when I shook it, sounded half full. I could just refill it and it might come back but it's 6-7 years old and I just don't want to worry about it.

 

My plans for selling my house and moving have been put on indefinite hold. There's been a lot of craziness going on in other parts on my life and I feel it's best to remain as stable and predictable as possible until the dust settles.

 

But, priorities, I need to get my day started. I'm going to get cleaned up and go out for breakfast.

 

❤️Have a great day everyone.

I walked in my first ever Pride parade today, at Annapolis Royal.  For a tiny little village (pop. 500), it was well attended, both in the parade and watching from the sidewalks.  It was a perfect day for it, sunny, not too warm, with a light breeze off the water.  That's me in the mask in the first photo.

 

My bigender friend Michelle was also in it (at right in 2nd photo), representing the Canadian Armed Forces' inclusivity program.

We’ll, I got as far as breakfast until I got word from from my friend. She’s super excited and wanted to let me know she’s going to be wear a pantsuit for our date tomorrow. Last I heard she was also painting her nails so she could look her best for me. I can only imagine how cute she’ll look. 
 

It brought up an issue for me. I have a lot of cute outfits but nothing that I feel will compliment what she’s wearing. So I’ve been in a bit of a panic for the last few hours trying to find a relatively classy dress. Unfortunately with such a short notice I’ve had no luck. However, I did find a black rhinestone belt to match my boots and hair band so it wasn’t a complete loss. 
 

Now I’m just waiting to get my nails done.

Well yesterday wound up being alright. Aside from the Ticketmaster app being a huge PITA.  The concert was great. Loverboy, Reo Speedwagon and Styx. I heard songs that I thought I would never hear live. 

 

Hugs.

Frustration - had my youngest for a third 6-day stretch last weekend. Wife out of town again. She was back less than 48 hours, Friday asked if I could watch him again because she had plans with a couple of friends for a concert and overnight. Sure, just not too late on Saturday, because I actually have tentative plans. Yesterday, no answer, no answer, finally "how about around noon?" Later than I prefer, but can maybe make it work. Then she pushed it back to 1:30. I said it would mess up my afternoon. "We'll you should have told me you had plans." No, actually, I shouldn't have to, even though I did.  It's not my weekend with him, it shouldn't be too surprising that I would.

 

Anyway, child #4, along with daughter, R, who lives with me, transferred to wife #4 for the rest of the weekend. Afternoon basically shot. Frustration, leading to mild depression and tears. Still this morning. Then, VOILA! Inside of my upper arm brushes against my breast. Hey, wake up, girl! You've got something you didn't have a year ago! You now actually, for real, no kidding, have breasts! Ok, some happy tears. And a new legal name in a month! Ok, more happy tears. And wife #4 will soon be ex #4, and don't let her bring you down. 

 

I'm ok

      Hi it's Suzanne      I finally did it. I've told my sister who I really am. I finally got to courage up last night, I asked her to come round today because I had something to tell her. Before she arrived I felt that I couldn't do it, I nearly backed out. Well she arrived and sat down I started to cry and told her I couldn't do it. She said that there wasn't anything I could do to shock her or make her hate me. It took awhile for me to give her my letter. I asked her to read it and then left the room. She came to me a few moments later and put her arms around me and told me that she already knew. Apparently she had known for years and was waiting for me to be ready to tell her. Also I knew that my mother had know years ago before she died, although she never said anything directly to me i knew from things she said to me in random conversations before she died. My sister confirmed that she did know, she told me that my mother had said it to her years ago that she knew. Twenty years ago, why did I leave it so long to tell her, if I had known back then I could have saved all those years of pain and loneliness. Anyway now it's out in the open. She says she doesn't hate me and never will. She has promised to stand by me all the way through my transition. She has even offered to tell her son for me. Apparently the last few months she and her partner had talked about me being Trans and he has no problem with me also. If only I had known. She said that she knew that I was going to tell her today because over the last few months they knew that I was having a hard time with something, and she knew It was because of this. Well I've finally taken the first step. I just need  to keep going. This is the first step towards my transition and to me finally being Suzanne the woman I should have always been. I know it's not going to be easy, but with my sister and hopefully her son, partner and other brother-in-law all supporting me I will have the strength to do anything. I will have the strength to be finally be the real me, to be happy in my new life. I know that other members of my extended family will probably have a problem with me transitioning but I don't see them that often and I don't care what they think anymore. As long as I have those closest to me supporting me I have all the support I need. I may lose friends along the way but if they care for me they will stick by me. Others if they don't then so be it. I feel better now knowing that I don't have to hide things from my sister, her partner and hopefully her son and my brother-in-law. Hopefully I'm now free to be the real me, Suzanne. I'd like to thank everyone who has supported and given me advice here, without you I wouldn't have taken this big step towards my new life, and with your continuing support I will finally complete my transition to womanhood and to finally being Suzanne and to finally being free. Again thank you all so much.   As always ❤️ Suzanne

      I thought I would write an update since it has been. I recalculate the timeline to day 26. I believe I have finally ended the physical withdrawal symptoms. This happen about 3 days ago. But, now I face and indeterminant duration of mental health issues. My mental cravings for opiates is surprisingly low. I exhibit no opiate seeking behavior. Wishing I could take some arises during difficult times of emotional upsets. I seem to be easily irradiate. And have angry outburst and even rage. I should be glad it is only verbal behavior. These incidents are usually followed by a period of sadness and some suicidal ideation (with no intention of carrying through. Also my means to do so are absent.) It is during these times that I wish I could have some hydromorphone without drug seeking behavior, I will often cry sometimes sooth by my partner. In between I may have a period of malaise. Just not feeling like doing anything. I have notice these symptoms are calming down, less intensity and duration. I am writing more. I kick off my new philosophy blog with I reposted of one I had just posted to my transgender blog. I will be working on both blogs, but eventually I feel that my philosophy blog is where most of my thoughts are going. [I know I must being boring people here or plain TMI] I am finally writing a long thought about piece on free will with 900+ words so far.   As far as withdrawal affecting my transgender life. It hasn't. I still take care of my face and other skin surfaces. I have always been easily sent in to a dysphoric mood upon seeing any hair on my body. Thankfully hrt seems to have lessoned hair grow on my body. This has only been noticeable except my back which happened earlier in the last month at the 2.5 months since starting. I also must don makeup if I have any contact with outside world in person or online video.    Anyway, that's my update.

      Good morning everyone    @Bri2020 it sounds like a fun day ( sarcasm intended). But it also means you are on the road to recovery. I hope everything goes well today     while Ian did leave significant damage in the area but nothing compared to Florida, we had no damage not even at our boat. I believe the area lost three piers. It would seem like the only time they get maintained is after a storm damages them our worse. No wind. Sun is out. It’s a beautiful fall day

      The idea of pursuing and extraditing them across state lines is…  I don't know how to word it.  It's just evil.

      I do have the E patches.   I have heard that the progesterone helps it work. The first clinic I went to (PP) gave me progesterone, but no estradiol.  They said I was too old for their protocol. My boobettes are barely A cup.  They are quite real though.  If that's all they do, I mean, okay then.  But just a bit more would be nice.  I would not do surgery for them though.  I'm 72 now anyway. I'm trying some OTC cream stuff.  It's not as strong as Rx stuff, but perhaps it might help a little.  IDK
