Well I hope the defecation doesn't hit the rotary oscillator today. With my son and wife finishing off packing a moving the last of the crap at our old apartment. I wasn't able to get my boobs moved. plus a couple personal items. OH, well I can take it. I am a big girl.

 

Thankfully I was able to get my wig moved. I have it up on ebay, at over half of what it cost.

reality will truly hit when you write your first mortgage check to the bank and you realize you are paying off YOUR mortgage instead of someone else's! Congrats

Hi everyone 

 

We've had several “it’s going to rain” notices.  But no actual rain.  I stayed home to be here to sign for a package only to get notified that the shipper never received the package from the sender.  So I wasted some time.  On that.  My intention had been to go to my boat to work on making it ready to take pictures to post to sell it.  Tomorrow I have to be here because the builder is supposed to be here to fix the things they destroyed it clean up the water leak. Still no word on the granite.  Wednesday and Thursday we have to be in Charleston.  We both have appointments but unfortunately they are on successive days.  I also have an appointment at the Genius Bar at Apple. Our iPhone 13s can’t seem to connect to cellular data.even when side by side with my Samsung and it’s getting cellular data.  All three are on the same carrier so it isn’t a carrier thing.  
 

I’ve been to the carrier and they couldn’t solve it.

 

guess I’ll call it a night.

@WillowA113 I don’t know how I missed you cry for help earlier.  There are a lot of sources of help available to you.  Besides all of us here who are always willing to help, there are any number of organizations out there.  
 

as for texting, I get that, things are private and not to be shared.  But we have a private messaging system right here  click on the envelope at the top and pick someone you want to pm with on transgender pulse they will get notified that you sent them a message.  Kymmie and I occasionally pm, and we have a third person that we have also talked to in a separate three party conversation.  That would also be the place if you really want to share private info like a phone number or email address, but you don’t have to do that.  Just keep it private right here.

PS look at “The Trevor Project”

So that birthday party I went to..... When I got there, thankfully, a couple of my other friends were already there, I really hate going to parties and not know anyone. I went to say hi to the birthday guy and since it was his birthday he wanted a kiss. Eh..whatever. His husband did too. ~It was at this point I realized I don't like cis guys and I will avoid them at all costs.~

I don't know how I forgot, there was another transwoman there. She's really nice and we have a lot in common so the conversation was never dull. As soon as her schedule slows down we're planning to meet up again.

 

I've been meeting so many people lately that I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. ~Maybe it's the blue hair. Maybe it attracts queer people.~ I never, ever, thought that would happen. Granted, most everyone has a crazy schedule and I don't know if/when I'll see anyone but my schedule is fixed so I'm able to make plans around their's.

 

And here I am again not able to say everything I want to.

I heard some civil liberty stuff about this hotline that it is monitored by law enforcement and they can commit you involuntarily

I feel like if someone is suicidal here in the States, you can be treated more like a criminal instead of a psych patient who needs medical attention. Just IMO but also referencing the prison system itself, and how difficult it is to find urgent psych care besides either waiting an ER for 6 hours or getting arrested. I was fortunate when I was suicidal, depressed there was a crisis center you could stay at for 3 days until you got a case worker and all that started. It's something to take seriously.

Good morning lousy night.

 

neither my wife nor I slept well last night.

 

@stveee  I have no idea if 988 is monitored by anyone or not .  But the purpose is to help people not to get them committed.  If they were monitoring any suicide hotline and word got out, that would be the end of it.  
 

@WillowA113. I said it before and I’ll say it again, The Trevor Project would be the best place to contact.  Please don’t even think those other thoughts let alone openly talk about them.

I don't believe it is monitored by law enforcement but yes, most crisis lines are monitored or recorded in order for the counselors to learn.  Even if they were, if you are calling a crisis line you NEED help asap. We should never discourage someone from calling, the consequences are too great not to.

@WillowA113I haven't been active the last couple of days, but how are you doing today? If you need to talk, I'm always available, too. ❤️

A little levity this morning. The shortcut bar on my laptop shows the local weather and provides a headline. Today the headline read, "Very hot outside." No kidding. It's August in Arizona. What were they expecting, snow or sleet?

 

Had to share this. it was quite the face palm moment...

Reminds me of my previous car, a 2006 Cobalt. (Keep in mind here, I'm from Cleveland.) It had this...umm, "safety" feature...where anytime I'd be bundled up in a winter coat, freezing my rear off, slip-sliding my way to the car so I could dig it out of the snow, then finally get inside, turn it on, and before I can even start defrosting my hands on the heater vents...the display on the dash makes sure to warn me: "ICE POSSIBLE"

 

/facepalm "Whaaat??? Ice? In this weather? No way!"

 

At the very least, it always made me very glad cars no longer have voices.

Yeah, that's like the "tires are sliding" light Rhonda has. I mean I KNOW. I can FEEL it.

Oh, I forgot about that one! Mine had something like that too. I would get SO sarcastic with that car half the time 🤣

 

It did also have an outdoor temperature display and a sunroof, though. Now THOSE features I do miss on my current car. But this one has a lot less rust on the under-parts, sooo....I guess I can't complain too much!

Hey, the Germans clearly can’t convert centigrade to Fahrenheit.  Two different VWs I had both said it was icy at 39° F

 

We are back from todays trip to Charleston.  We got to our Genius Bar appointment at Apple.  Our genius lived up to his title of genius.  After checking both phones he determined it was a carrier problem.  Called the carrier, told them what to check.  Sure enough, it was a carrier issue.  They forgot to turn on cellular data on both of our phones.  We had a quick lunch and got to my wife’s medical appointment right on time.  Tomorrow it will be just me going back to Charleston for my endocrinologist appointment.  I hope to stop at my boat on the way home.

Ugh....I can't stand cars that think or talk.  My GF has a Challenger that she customized.  It has a completely different computer system in it, something she built.  Connects to the internet, communicates with other vehicles in her fleet, and literally has radar.  Looks sweet, but it talks.  And the way she programmed it, it has a sour and sassy attitude.  🤮  Give me a normal old dumb car from the 80's.  I still drive the clunker I got in high school...

      I got off cigarettes after nine years, and it was another year before I stopped dreaming that I had gone back to smoking. Arguably the least dangerous addictive substance in terms of impact on lifestyle, nicotine is nonetheless a formidable opponent when you're trying to quit.

      Hi @Jamey, nice to meet you. I wonder how other people respond to you on those days when you dress in jeans and a t-shirt? Do they treat you as male? And if so, do you correct them? I know for myself that jeans and a t-shirt can cause people to think of me as male, and while this hurts, it also gives me a day of rest from time to time during which I don’t feel so watched. In my case, I am out to every significant person in my life including workmates, so I don’t feel inauthentic so much as slightly eroded somehow in my sense of myself. But when I was still working with clients who did not know I was trans, and wearing jeans and t-shirt while I did so, that felt inauthentic.    I guess what I’m saying is, yes, authenticity is about how we feel on the inside, but it’s also about how we communicate that feeling to others. Maybe, in jeans and t-shirt, you feel you’re hiding in plain sight?

      I'm not sure if this qualifies as a thought for the day, but I wish it could be advertised to the wider community (I avoid using female restrooms/showers/... because of the wrong that exists between my legs). The trans woman in the public restroom is not saying, "I’m here to invade your space!" - she’s saying, "please take me in, I have no other place to go." We’re not conquerors or invaders, we’re refugees.

      I never understood (tobacco) addiction, until I overheard a conversation my Dad had with a smoking friend of his.   Dad had gone cold turkey on cigarettes after a close friend died of lung cancer at 40yo.  About 25 years later, he told his friend that he craved a cigarette every time someone lit up near him - so scary.  Kudos to every person who managed to kick an addiction.

      I was going to throw away my two pair of barely used "breasts".  I'm not aware of an LGBTQI center where I live but will take them with me on my ~1350km drive to Brisbane (nearest capital city) soon - should be something there.

      I think this is true for all mental aspects of HRT.  I've always been emotional so neither my wife or I expected much of a change on this front but there was - the emotions are stronger on both ends of the spectrum and I can swing fairly quickly.  The way I feel and sense interactions with other people has also changed.  I enjoy and desire conversations with women and I tend to get disinterested during conversations with men. On a slightly negative front, I have started experiencing a "loss of power" - I have been a team leader for many years and have recently started noticing that people (men) outside my team sort of ignore me and start decision making conversations with male team members who work under me.  My being less assertive since HRT may be one of the reasons for my perceived loss  of power.

      I'm sure that others have probably mentioned these before, but in my pre-HRT research I never saw taste/diet change or body odour change listed, so these both came as a pleasant surprise for me. The impossible to miss diet/taste change for me has been that I'm eating salads on a plate, with dressing, for the first time in my life.  It's not just that I'm eating them, I'm really enjoying them - having meals with plated salad at least 4 times a week now.

      It was many years before the shame of my addiction lessened.  I had heard the statement : "i'm grateful to be an alcoholic" and thought the speaker nuts!  Today i can echo those words as i accept my alcoholism and gender as well.   I have found that i when i share my journey it shows another there is a path.  It is always up to them wether they want to take it.   It took me time to fully understand " To thine own self be true" .  Yet another reason to be grateful.   Hugs,   Charlize

      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.
