Good morning everybody and some fresh coffee!

 

Been away for couple of months living in denial again 😖.

 

I thought I got rid of dysphoria but the other day I was watching a german detective series tracking missing persons. There was this priest who turned out to be a trans woman and it just hit me in the face. I got rid of my body hair and wore my wig, breast forms, tops, skirts and realized how much I've missed it.

 

Had an appointment scheduled to a trans care unit last spring which I cancelled and now - if i so decide - must jump thru the hoops all over again.

 

I know what i should do, only I'm afraid to do it. Hope you all are doing better.

Good evening everyone. Things have started to slow down a smidge for me. Finally got out of our apartment today. Now for the maze of boxes in our new house. Which is not a problem as it is OUR house. The garage is still packed. We just need to start getting stuff put away and sorted or pitched.

 

Went about 5 days without my patch. Got them on yesterday.

 

Take care and have a good night everyone.

Hi

 

today was an interesting day.  I managed three different hospitals.  First I left home and went to MUSC West Ashley.  There I saw my endocrinologist.  Left there and went to MUSC Rutledge Ave to the pharmacy.  MUSC = Medical University of South Carolina.  This is The only hospital in SC trying to create a Transgender care team.  Endocrinologist, Therapist, speech therapy, urologist, and apparently cosmetic surgery/ face femeninization, top surgery and apparently even bottom surgery but I don’t think they will have that anytime soon,

 

on the way home, I stopped at our boat. Packed some more stuff into my car.  Went back for a second load.  Decided to run the engine a bit.  While doing that, a juvenile wasp came out of the helm and stung me.  Now unless you’ve been on here a long time, you wouldn’t know this, I AM HIGHLY ALLERGIC TO WASP VENOM!!!  I am supposed to immediately inject Epipen then call 911.  Well, I didn’t have an Epipen with me. The only ones I have are past date and they were at home.

 

So I got in my car to head to the ER as quickly as I could.  As I am driving I realize there is a fire station just ahead.  Stopped and ask if they could take me to the hospital.  Which they did.  Hence hospital number 3.  The EMS gave me a big dose of Benadryl directly into a vein. That started settling things down.  About 90 minutes after getting to the ER my wife and I were on the way back to the boat.  I knew I left the A/C on and wasn’t sure if I’d even shut the engine off.  That I had done.

 

lunch at 3 home by 5.  The meds are wearing off.

Too gosh darn early to say any more than “morning!”

 

I woke up 90 minutes ago.  I’ve been trying to get back to sleep but my hand is bothering me a lot and I have a headache, not yet a migraine.  So here I am.  Eating a bowl of my life long favorite cereal, shredded wheat.  I like it best with fruit and I used to add one teaspoon of sugar.  But since I discovered vanilla soy milk,no sugar added.  If you’ve never tried it, you should.  Much better shelf life, and I really like the taste.  But you have to get vanilla.  Mine comes in a bluish ½ gallon carton.

 

im going to contact my endocrinologist via mychart today to learn more about top surgery.  Just exploratory.

 

Other than that, not much happens before 5am.  Granite countertops are supposed to be replaced today we are slowly making some headway on the kitchen repairs. 🤞


 

I’ll let you know if it happens.

 

@KymmieL glad you are sleeping in your own home finally.  This garage you talk about, is that back at the apartment or separately rented from some one or what?  If you ever said I missed that but at the same time I didn’t understand why you were putting money into a garage if it was part of the apartment.

 

Hope y’all can get more sleep than I did.

Good morning everyone,

 

So one of our neighbors reported us for having a "messy yard". He claimed to have offered his help, which is a load of BS. He never once came over and interacted with us. He's a pastor, too...go figure the religious figure is also a liar.

 

And now my husband is dead-set on cleaning up the yard this afternoon. I'll be stuck at work until 4:00, so I don't know if he's going to start before then or afterwards. My housemates don't know who reported us and we're keeping it that way. They'd both start a fight with the neighbor and we'd (my husband and I) would prefer to keep this civil. Just clean up the yard and all will be good until the next time the neighbor decides to complain, I guess.

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.

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.

Good morning/afternoon the coffee is gone.

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,

      Just read in an LGBTQ Nation article where, yes. the thing about Furries is a characterization of Trans identities.  A political candidate in Colorado is the main shoot from the mouth person in that fracas.  She has over 30 state school districts and 3 organization of school administrators and superintendants telling her to go chase a cat, preferably a wild cat who will turn and chase her.

      @Marcie Jensen @Billie75B my E levels tanked three months ago.  I just did blood work yesterday for new numbers. If they are still in the tank, we will change things but it’s been a fight with my endo and he’s the only one I can go to.  This state likes to make it very difficult for doctors to help transgenders.
    • Russ Fenrisson
      Definitely, definitely. This seems very illegal and very invasive. It can already be embarrassing enough having a monthly and having it start at inconvenient times, and having documentation like this might actually embarrass an athlete and cause them- on the extreme side- to consider dropping athletic sports if that's how they're going to be treated. Really, it shouldn't be a school's business when a student experiences such a process or when they had it last. That's only important to the parents- if the student is comfortable with sharing such information- and doctors if a medical emergency occurs. No athlete should be barred under the basis of a process not everyone goes through. There are some girls who don't get monthlies or as often as other people.
    • KathyLauren
      If anyone opts out of answering, they will be branded as trans, and discrimination will follow.  The whole point is to identify trans people.
    • Russ Fenrisson
      At the time I went to see the counselor, I don't think the trans condition was very well understood or thought of as important. And it really isn't right for a therapist to make that kind of 'deal' situation with their client. Often, one issue causes another and they can't be singly ignored or favored for another.    I saw mentioned somewhere about interviewing a therapist before actually starting treatment. It genuinely sounds like a good idea, especially since you'll be seeing them for a time. I don't like the feeling I'm conducting an interrogation, but I'll have to get over that if I want to get better. And, maybe, the therapist won't mind either.   I'll remember to ask about that too. Where I live, there are few therapists available that work with transgender issues. I just hope they can help those that are FtM. My one concern is the therapist having a negative reaction towards me. It's probably in my head, but if I run into a similar situation as I related before, I might be mortified.
    • Russ Fenrisson
      @VickySGVSounds like a pretty funny situation. I've never been to a Furry event before but they look like fun. I've met a few Furries in person in the past and they're really cool, creative people.   @awkward-yet-sweetHaha! That's a funny one!    @Marcie JensenThat sounds like a funny sketch. I've always been a fan of puns.

      Since this is being done online, there is no way to guarantee anyone's privacy. They did claim it was optional though. Seems unnecessary intrusive.

      Looking for solutions to problems that do not exist and creating injustice and privacy violation for the whole of women in the state.  The mentality of the old slave owning states, that humans must be owned by masters is as alive and well as ever. Pass the DNA please.
