Good Morning everyone.

 

@Willow glad you are alright. Wasps are a pain literally. 

 

My garage is here at the house, 2 car attached. Full of boxes and other junk from the move. haven't gotten to unpack much, working gotta make the $$$$ to pay the for the 🏠. Working days today. heading to Cheyenne after work going to hit Lowe's and menards need to get a few things for the house. Like a lawn mower. It is still like a dream.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

The pink monster is OK. The problem is my wife and family.

Good morning coffee etal drinkers

 

we had a rough time getting to sleep last night, but slept soundly once we did.  I don’t suppose the batch of brownies I made after 9pm helped.  ☺️
 

we have some housework to do but mostly are looking forward to a day at the pool.  
 

i noticed that that location of the wasp sting was still quite noticeable.  I tried squeezing it and managed to get some fluid out.  Unfortunately, I apparently broke a sac my body had built around the remaining venom.  I am getting minor symptoms of the venom invading places in my body.  My hand is quite itchy again and I’m having other symptoms.  I guess I should have opened it to the surface and not risked pushing it inside.  I should have known better since I’ve had a lot of first aide/first responders training.  I even used to teach it to others.  Sometimes we just don’t think to follow all of our training.

 

Its August in the south.  Another day of high humidity and temperatures in the high 80s, low 90s will make it feel like it’s over 100°.  
 

Sweetie is patiently waitin* by the door to go out.  I guess I’d better get a move on.

 

enjoy your morning get me going beverage.

Brunch is hitting the table.

 

Suzie and I are planning out our camping trips for the rest of the year.

 

It's a good morning.

I quit cigarettes a long time ago, but I was on tour with my band in Arizona and I bought this lighter at a truck stop.  It was just how I felt at the time, doing my first tour since going full time.  Played country music in Prescott, Mesa, and Tucson, and got nothing but praise and compliments...a great boost to my confidence.

One of our local galleries and music venue was defaced by a group called Patriotfront that IIRC is named akin after a Nazi group called Stormfront, and pretty much use the same tactics. The gallery was decorated in tribute to BLM. The group uses stencils with various logos. 

It really did not come as a surprise I guess, my State is a fair cross section of the country. Although I have yet to experience violence myself it makes me more aware...

Good morning everyone,

 

Been getting better about taking my medication ever since I purchased myself a cute little pill tray (comes with it's on bag!). Even my nausea has been better! I'm thinking my flare-up is coming to an end, after two grueling months. I don't trust my bile reflux medication, however. I took it for over a month and was still having stomach issues. So I doubt that's helping...as it's clear that my esophagitis is still running strong (swallowing medication is a bit of a gamble...) We'll see once I'm able to see the specialist in October.

 

In other news, I've been working on edits for my book. My roommate is dead-set on drawing a cover for it, so I'm taking this opportunity to make necessary changes. Once that's done, I'll start back on the sequel. Wish me luck!

Good morning

 

im taking a break from morning housework. Sitting on the porch, listening to the gentle rain. I think the water aerobics class finally gave up.  Oops, I’m wrong I just couldn’t see them. I suppose if you are wet what difference does some rain make.  Oh there they go.  It just needed to come down harder.

 

Walked the dog, cleaned the shower, sorted laundry.  Things are getting a little bit better every day.  
 

we did some shopping yesterday.  Mostly just needed a day out of the house.  That sounds odd considering all the time we were gone last week.  Anyway, my wife showed me a very pretty blouse, somewhat poncho style.  I made the comment we’d be fighting over it.  She said no I picked it out for you.  Anyway, we both tried it on and both liked it so we will be sharing it like I thought.  We went to another store where I bought some jammies.  Pink top with flamencos on the bottoms.  Actually my first obviously feminine ones and no complaints.  So, yes things are getting better, much better!

 

Well I think I need to start another chore.  Have a great day everyone

Hi, Everyone. finally on my last of 5 Wednesdays. So today I texted my wife and asked what was wrong. What did I do?

 

Basically in a nut shell. I should have shirked the responsibility of having a job and unpacked crap at home. Because she and our youngest called out last week. I should have done the same. Once I got home just jumped in and helped, I was just terrible to sit and relax instead.

Then I told my wife we are taking a side trip on the way home from visiting our oldest next month. That after 7 yrs I am getting my sheltie. She went off about we don't need another dog. Etc. Etc. When she said years ago, when I mentioned that I wanted another one. She said, that we can get our sheltie once we move out of the apt. That has been done. She then accuses me of not changing since 1988. That when we had to get rid of our collie. when we move on base we will get another one. I didn't want to start a huge argument that we didn't move on base till 1990. The collie the trailer park made us get ride of was not Bandit.(He was the collie I had when I was a teen.)It was shadow. And she wanted the dog as bad as I did.

 

Other that that my life has been miserable, work is the same. I get screwed with the closing shift. Today when I showed the boss the connection cords that I took out of a delivery truck. All I got was Oh, thanks. When it is against company policy to used personal devices in company vehicles. I have put in for another position for dealer parts here in town. There was another one that has an opening. that is less than 1/2 mile from my house. But I found out the parts Dept and service manager I worked for him for a month and he is an a$$hat.

 

I hope that everyone has been having a better time than I have. So I wait for the hordes of locust, or The super volcano i Yellowstone to erupt. That would just clinch it.

 

Hugs,

To be fair, if Yellowstone erupts, we're ALL going to have a read bad day.

 

All I'm going to say otherwise is that your life isn't going to get better until you make it better. No magic fairy is going to come along and make everything right. The thing that worked the best for me is when my therapist asked me, "What kind of woman is Jackie?" I've been moving towards that ever since. The second best advice I got is, "If life hands you an opportunity? Take it!" Be on the lookout for ways to make your life better. When you find one, grab onto it and don't let go!

 

Good luck with the sheltie! I had one growing up and, while I vibe better with cats, she was a very good dog.

 

Hugs!

Hey everyone! 

finallmade a good at-home ice coffee. I keep trying to not make my ice coffee too sweet, but it ends up being too sweet. Finally made it less-sweet! 

What is it about waking up and making my own coffee that starts my day off better? ❤️

Excellent advice, @Jackie C..

The best I got was from my sponsor, who after hearing me complain endlessly, asked me: "Well, what do you want?" which I thought was the most ridiculous question I'd ever heard. He kept repeating it until I burst into tears. I'd never asked that of myself. Now, it's the first thing I ask. I believe my higher power gives me "wants" as her suggestions for my life and dreams. AND she's been right. It simplifies and directs every question I have every day. It's like a perfect cuppa tea with magic dust. Mmmm . . . .

hugs,

Davie

Well to make life bearable for me. I will not be getting a sheltie yet. Things did get so nice today. At about 1:30 we lost power at the store. Completely, our company is so money hungry. We had to stay open. even when we couldn't look up anything and taking CC was a pure nightmare. I refused to.  We had to stay open till 8pm. I know if it would have been a month ago. it would have been light later so we would have stayed open till normal. Thankfully when the power dies so does the phones.

Good morning everyone,

 

I'm enjoying a pot of home brew Folgers Black Silk, after being on the road drinking warm hotel coffee, and burnt training room coffee, at a major refinery in Wood River, IL most of this week.

 

Best wishes, positive thoughts for everyone,

Emotions Diary #9

— I’m feeling like a liar and a phony in two groups of my friends this week. In a group with my oldest friends on Wednesday we had a lively discussion and a good time for almost two hours. And on Tuesday I again had a great time but with all my trans friends for two hours. Back-to-back. Two separate days each I enjoyed myself. In each and with both groups I felt happy and liberated to be accepted and trusted to speak freely and to listen and accept and trust others—in those moments, within each. Sounds fine, right?

But immediately after each event, I felt depressed and angry with myself for putting on a phony mask face and pretending to be someone I wasn’t. It felt like instead of feeling good about both events, I felt awful about them. I felt like a liar and phony to both somehow. And I felt I’d lied about who I was with both groups and to myself. Ouch, that hurts. It feels  like I don’t know who I am and that I’m hurting others by my inability to be honest and caring. Once again: Ouch. Is this just a normal day in Non-Binary Transville or something else?

And then today my friend emails me from Columbia:
A photo of her newborn baby. Lucas, the beautiful.
Just for the moment, I’m reborn, my own baby is me.

— Davie

Good morning everyone 

 

I haven’t posted anything for a few days because I haven’t really had anything to say.  But I have been on here and read every ones posts.

 

we’ve been drinking green mountain dark lately. Lots of doctors appointments.  Finally got new Epipens. I have one in my purse so I won’t be without again.  My hand where I got stung is still swollen and still itches sometimes.  I never had this reaction before but I’ve been told it will get worse each time I get stung.

 

it is supposed to be cooler and less humid starting today abundant throughout the weekend.  It also supposed to rain or storm some but so far that hasn’t happened.  Weave been fortunate that no hurricanes have formed.  The weather over the ocean coming off Africa has been blocking them.  I know this is very unscientific but that actually concerns me that when they do start rolling there will be one right after another and bad ones.    
 

Hugs

      Perhaps I'm in the minority but I generally put on light make-up unless I'm just working around the house. Foundation, darken my eye brows a bit, gel eye pencil along the bottom of my eyes (normally blue), mascara, a bit of rouge on my cheeks to add a little color and then lipstick.   Each of us is different and going with some make-up helps tamp down my dysphoria so that's the way I ride. :-)

      Yeah.  The eyeliner, foundation,  lipstick, blush, eye shadow and whatever else they sell to gullible young women gets abandoned as we get older, but it also depends on the crowd.  My wife wears makeup whenever she leaves the house, chiefly foundation that blends with her skin, hides blemishes (not that she has anything of the sort, says her dutiful mate) and probably can't really be noticed.  And lip balm.  Neither can be particularly noticed.   Yesterday we ate out and our waitress, young sweet thing, had at least eyeliner and heavy-duty lip paint, seemingly one step beyond lipstick, sort of a shiny black.  And facial piercings, which tend to freak me out.   The women at church after 40 or so are subtle in their makeup.  Some of the younger ones are more, shall we say, colorful.

      I don't have the report, but there was a study on teenage suicide prevention programs.  The conclusion was interesting: telling kids that suicide was an option that they should not take caused more kids to kill themselves.  Help should be available, but over-broadcasting it apparently turns some kids suicidal.   "Real" trans kids do not need anyone to tell them they are trans.  Someone with other problems may be told that all they need to do is transition and their problem will go away, sort of like giving an appendectomy for a broken leg.  I was glad to see the detransitioning rate is as low as it is; stuff I had read indicated it was a lot higher.   I think kids should be told there are resources available but not be pushed, which apparently happens to some kids, according to the testimonies of some detransitioners.  Gender dysphoria is real but treating it is not the solution to every problem.   Someone may work out they are trans only after decades, and growing up in the wrong gender will generate comorbidities.    I think detransitioning would generate all sorts of problems, particularly if the individual transitions again (someone did this).  Physical, emotional, psychological problems.  Best to be mean and screen people as accurately as possible, which I think is being done.  Gatekeeping can be important in sorting out those who are trans from those who are, say, suffering from bipolar disorder.

      Indeed.  I also suspect that there are trans folks who may not know who they really are.   And also those who think they are, due to the increasing focus on the issue, when perhaps they might not be.  Trying to figure it out it's like trying to diagnose yourself on WebMD.

      Woman's t shirt, women's jeans, sneakers.  No bra.  My boobies are bigger without a sports bra, but it is a Catch-22.  I fail the pencil test, so I don't technically need a bra. Bra == girl, boobs == girl.  Thinking about just breaking the barrier, accepting I look this way and cannot fight it, and buying a nice pink top and a denim skirt.  It would cause a lot of uproar that I do not want to face.

      Looks nice. I've never tried makeup.  One time my daughter put some on me, it was pretty bad.  But admittedly, the light was not so great.  IDK, I don't really notice any women my age with any.
