You may be right :( 

But sometimes it takes  long time for people to get it.  
If it’s truly important there will be a better time.

 

btw congrats on your surgery🌈🌈

You look great!  
Your ability to make friends and relationships is greater..

Good morning 

 

You know, I really don’t know why I ever started drinking coffee, I guess I saw it as a right of passage.  Why not tea?  Well I did drink tea for a while but never got it right, except for iced tea.  My mother drank coffee and my father tea.  
 

I closed down my Facebook and other connections to my friends when I figure out I was a sheep in wolves clothing.  Then I opened a new Facebook account and slowly and carefully started asking old friends to be friends again.  Some have, some haven’t but I now know who my good friends were.  Some surprised me.  Never give up, you just don’t know.  My closest old friends have made their journey to the other side.  
 

I am having trouble finding someone in my plan that will take insurance to cover breast implants and without insurance coverage it can’t ever happen.  Out of state is a possibility but it can’t be too far away, I still have to get there and back multiple times.

 

@Confused1 now for the big debate, Coke verses Pepsi and diet verses regular.  I am a “Real Sugar Pepsi” fan but that isn’t easy to get.  Coke was developed about 6 hours south of here and Pepsi four hours north. These days Everyone uses corn syrup and that’s worse for you.  I’ve never found a diet drink that I could drink.  And yes I can absolutely tell the difference. Yet I know a lot of people swear by diet drinks often for the same reasons I swear by regular.  There will never but an agreement on this question.

 

i have someone interested in my boat coming to see it today and another Saturday.  I’m going to miss it but that’s the way it goes.

I tried connecting with an old friend a few weeks ago. He asked me what was up with me changing my name. O got as far as telling him I'm legally a woman now and that was the last I heard from him. I though he was marginally better than that but oh well, his loss.

I came out to (Who I thought) was a best friend from the service. A few years ago. While we are still facebook friends that is about it. I haven't came out to any other people I know from the past. To most I am the kid that had the white car. From the autoshop. I believe that is the way my classmates remember me.

 

@Willow I also don't remember why I started drinking coffee. Both my parents did. I think it was my wife, a coffeehalic. I cannot remember a time were she ordered anything but a coffee and an ice water at a sit down restaurant.

 

Fall has started here in the northern Rockies. Yesterday and today are in the mid 60s.

Evening all. Long day - could sure use a Mountain Dew, with real sugar, or Cherry Coke right now. In "dew" time. (Sorry)

 

Took my daughter to a medical appointment today, filling in all the parental blanks. She'll be 18 in a couple of months, so I had her fill some of other stuff herself, as the patient. In the blank requesting who brought her, she wrote, "Mom." Pitter patter.

Good evening

 

Hannah Renee how great.  Nothing better than some affirmation from your daughter.  
 

@KymmieL it’s been a long time but I think it as my time in the Air Force that got me started.  Just because it was there.  Hey beer call tomorrow?

 

I never expected selling my boat to be easy and quick but I’m glad fall is arriving tomorrow it was upper 90s today 70s tomorrow.  Even though the hurricane is about to hit Bermuda it is causing havoc with our beaches with rip currents and high surf 

 

next on just might cause some rain here.

Just finished packing for a long weekend in Sacramento, CA.  My wife and I are attending a trans formal (River City Sparkle) on Saturday evening.  I love events where evening gowns are the preferred attire.  Additionally, I'm really looking forward to rubbing elbows with some California girls.  Brian Wilson and David Lee Roth, eat your hearts out!

@Willow When I was in the Air Force, I always figured the Russians would attack when everyone was having their morning coffee.

 

And my daughter is a real treat. I am very fortunate the she decided to move with me when my ex and I separated.

Can two people on opposite sides of the political spectrum make it work? asking for a friend... ok I am asking for me. I am very right leaning, she is extreme left. I think she was shocked and hurt. I don't know if she will want to see me again... don't know if I can go through loosing someone again..

check out an organization called Braver Angels. They conduct classes on how to have difficult conversations.

Good morning all, The coffee is hot and strong this morning. So today is a big day for me as I officially come out at my company. I had a pre-meeting with the president of our division yesterday and he was totally accepting and told me he had my back. So starting Monday Billy will no longer work here as he will be replaced by Riley, free at last.

 

Hugs

      Hi! I'm a questioning afab (It's ok, you can refer to me as a woman or just a person) and I have a large chest, E/F cup. I am searching for a rather cheap and comfortable binder, are the gc2b classical ones good? Do any of you have other recommendations? Thank you in advance.

      I've had many favorites over the years.  My first was Ultima IV, which managed to pack a surprisingly vibrant (and large) world onto my 128k Apple IIc.  Star Control II was the next game to really capture my attention.  Both games managed to convey a story of surpising depth for a video game.   I had a brief affair with Total Annihilation. 4x games aren't usually my thing, but TA had a mod community that kept the game fresh for a few years.  As long as I played against the computer, my weak strategy wasn't a handicap.   Minecraft is my number one game, and is likely to stay that way, given how long it has held the top slot.  I loved Lego when I was a wee child, and Minecraft scratches that itch in a big way.  My daughter is always telling me that the things I build in survival mode are better than what she sees others making in creative mode.

      When I was a teenager, I was fortunate to have my sister backing me up.  There's less than a year of age difference between us, and we went to school together and played on teams together.  We also look very much alike and had the same style.  It helps to not be alone.   I wear boxers most of the time.  Actually, around the house, that's about all I wear.  I really dislike clothing of any kind in warm weather, so about the only thing my partners can get me to wear is shorts and a t-shirt.  One layer, nothing underneath.  I can be pretty stubborn about things like that.   A lot of the time, I wear basketball shorts.  Silky texture, good at sweat wicking.  If I have to wear a shirt, I often use ones that have the arms cut out.  Anything to stay cool in summer.  Bonus is that it is androgynous looking or even masculine.

      Hello & welcome @Beginsat43 . Nice to make your virtual acquaintance. I relate to several things you shared. Due to intellectual incompatibility, I also found making friends difficult during the early part of my life. To compound the issue, I was raised in a deeply fearful Irish Catholic family - my mother was afraid of everything and indoctrinated me into that legacy of fear. It took concerted effort on my part to learn the art of friendliness and how to relate to others to realize intimacy on levels other than that of the intellectual. One practical part of this process, which is rather amusing, is that I had to adjust my conversational lexicon because I had spent much more time reading (I also did not own a TV until about 2012) than talking to people that I rendered myself "conversant", but unrelatable - I'd speak words that most folks do not know. (Sometimes I'd get asked in a mocking way, "what are you, a librarian?") To say it's been worth the effort to learn better how to relate is an understatement. I am blessed with many wonderful, beloved and loving friends in my life. Related to that, my study of Eastern religions has taught me in part that the intellect is but a tool and not my identity. This knowledge has deepened my understanding of how my existence is an aspect of a unified oneness, and that truly there is nothing to fear. Also, like you, I began to self-medicate at age 19. And, as I gain insight into my asexuality and gender identity, I realize that, similar to what you describe, my attraction to men has been very much steeped in envy. I am gratified to hear you are feeling positive and eager to realize your genuine identity. It is indeed exhilarating to let go of restraints which have bound us for so long. In many ways, it's like starting a new life. Cheers to you.

      I'd also add, that a friend of mine does trans yoga through her trans affirming enterprise "My Feminine Heart." She's a sweetheart and I'd be remiss if I didn't point you her way.   Hugs!
