Congratulations @Bri2020. I'm so happy for you.  It doesn't seem like that long ago when you started your journey.

Well, my relatives in FLA say they're safe, but I don't feel safe here. I live in a loft where the landlord is replacing the roof starting in about 10 seconds. My work is writing and with my bad back I can't go out much. Should be a fun ride—inside the drum of Ginger Baker.

Cheers,

Davie

Good morning everyone. Coffee, lots and lots of coffee.

 

I was asked on Tuesday if I wanted goto a fundraiser masquerade ball this Friday. I couldn't say no. Since I realized I'm kind of a mess right now and don't have anything to wear I've been in a bit of a panic mode trying to get everything together. Tried to get my nails done last night but the place was super busy so after wasting almost an hour sitting I made an appointment for tonight. The shoes I ordered came in yesterday so that's done. I found myself out at 8:30 last night looking for a strapless bra. Thankfully I found one pretty easily. The dress should be here today, it better fit. I still have to find a mask, that'll be my task at lunch today. It's all probably not as overwhelming at it feels but I want to give a good impression with my friend at the event.

Good Thursday morning everyone 

 

Today will be Ian prep day.  Bringing potted plants inside the porch, cushions from the porch to the inside and similar things to do.  One last check on my boat since I have to be near there later anyway. I’m a little concerned about one particular line being too tight.

 

others are moving the patio furniture inside from our pool this morning.  We aren’t supposed to get anything too severe but weather predictions aren’t always accurate.  This morning they have taken us out to the warning zone.

 

it will probably be a week before I hear from my friend who was right in the worst part.  She was a Marine Captain who used to come to our group with her things and change because her commander wouldn’t allow her to be on base dressed even though the medical command of the Corp had reviewed her case and given her authorization.  That was during the Trump reversal of don’t ask don’t tell.

 

@Bri2020 you too are in my thoughts and prayers for s speedy pain free recovery.

 

hugs

good morning everyone. Today is post op day 2 or better known as day two of TERRIBLE coffee. lol. 

Everyone I know in FL is safe thankfully but I have no idea when my daughter will be able to go back. We can't seem to get any info out of St Pete area. It was mostly spared but got tons of rain. No idea what the power situation is down there and we don't want her to go back to sweltering heat and no power.

Recovery going well. Still no pain to speak of unless I try to move too much in bed.  Tomorrow they let me move to a chair 3 times for 30 minutes at a time. Also means I can try to visit the loo.  Either Saturday or Sunday all the drains and packing come out and dilation training begins. Home sometime between Sunday night and Tuesday morning

Morning, all. Here in SE FL, we had some tropical storm conditions yesterday. For the most part, not bad here at all - although there were a few tornados which devastated some properties. But overall, nothing compared to what the FL gulf coast has endured which is unbelievable.

I think when all is said and done, the devastation and loss of life will come close to Katrina. Ft Myer area will take years to rebuild/recover.

We're still getting tropical storm winds and rain here in Deltona (between Orlando and Daytona Beach). There's been a lot of flooding locally. Ian should move off of us and out to sea late this afternoon.

Congrats on your procedure! And wishing you a speedy recovery.

 

I should be at work this morning but I home tested positive for Covid after a couple days of body aches, fatigue, nausea. The cat seems really happy I am able to spend so much time with her, but I have had every cold and flu symptom there is at this point. Still have three more days to recover at least and had vacay time to cover and keep things current. I get up and fiddle with things and then it wears me out and I end up back on the couch. Just a miserable experience. This new strain ain't no joke. Also my concentration is really fuzzy like when you are on certian drugs or medication and I get on the web and it becomes work to follow along.

 

Still waiting on my Endo and my latest blood results, but I am expecting i am probably not near target levels yet. Going to switch to night shift next week because the physical exertion aspect is lighter, so it's a trade off. But eventually I think i will get used to it.

WOW! From now warning or watches to hurricane warning.  What is going on with this storm or the forecasters?  So far a cool brisk wind but nothing mor than brisk and the cloud cover is thickening but no rain.

 

it will be what it will be but I’m not concerned.  We’ve stayed here through a cat3 and we’re in the eye of another.  The eye wall is allegedly the worst, maybe because if you don’t realize it you think it’s over.

It was downgraded from a CAT 4 hurricane soon after it made landfall in SW Florida and has remained a tropical storm since then. But when it moves off of us and out over the Atlantic to start moving north later today, it has the potential to re-strengthen to a CAT 1 over water before it gets to South Carolina.

We're getting a kinda chilly breeze here today.  But the sun is out.  The track they're currently predicting will come right through here.  They expect rain, but we're pretty far inland.  These things usually peter out by the time they get to us.

My son has a landscaping/lawncare business.  He was on his way to a job this morning when a older fellow crossed the centerline and hit his truck and trailer.  He walked away from it, but his truck, trailer, and equipment are history.  He said some of his stuff flew 300 yards.  They took the other guy to the hospital.

 

In the pix the trailer is just bits here and there.  The equipment (what's left of it) is scattered across a field.  I'm just thankful he wasn't hurt.

It was kinda cool in the house this morning, so I wanted to cut the propane heater on.  But never could get it lit.  I had tested it yesterday and it did light, but took a really long time.  I thought maybe the tank was empty.  But it wasn't.  Finally traced it to the regulator and replaced it.

 

I can't use the wood burner until I put in a new metal chimney pipe.  My son was going to help with that, but with the wreck it looks like he'll have enough on his hands for now.  He's a hour and a half away from here, and doesn't have a truck anymore.

 

When I was at the Tractor Supply getting the regulator, they had some of the heaters like the one I have. So I picked up another.  2 of 'em should be able to keep the place toasty until I can get the wood stove functional again.

 

It's been an exciting morning.  Now I can just kick back and wait on the rain.

Sounds like you are getting along great Bri. You'll be up and about before you know it.

 

My mom is doing alright. She just had a lot of rain. Meteorology is the only science that you can get paid for being wrong half of the time.  

 

Just got back from my first injection of leupron. My endo has changed me back to it. Changed me over to Climara patches. but these things are huge.

 

One of the nurses at the infusion clinic made my day. She brought me back for my shot.. She said she had to meet me. She is friends with my GYN nurse, who told her about me and just loves me.

 

Well take care everyone. those in the storms way batten down the hatches, or head for the high ground.

 

Hugs,

Hi 

 

well everyone is saying Ian is coming to South Carolina.  Likely landfall of the eye is apparently Georgetown which is about 30 miles south of my condo, but less than 15 miles south of my boat.

 

supposed to hit here tomorrow morning with wind in the upper tropical tropical storm range to minimal cat 1.

Keep in mind there are but two career fields where being wrong or losing most of the time are counted as successful. Those are left handed starting pitching and weather forecasting...

Good morning 

 

Weather channel is broadcasting from just a few miles from here.  Rained all night but it isn’t raining here now.  Windy but no worse than it has been.  The electric utility has been working hard for several years now to bury the electric lines so every year, power loss becomes less likely.  There are no visable power lines anywhere near me.  Based on past experience I an not concerned,

.

 

still praying for the people of Florida where I have friends that probably don’t know if they have a home to return to.

 

have a good day and please remember our friends that are suffering from this storm.

Good afternoon 

 

I have a loaf of rustic bread rising.  It will be ready to bake about mid afternoon.  We have plenty of eggs, TP, bread in the form of yeast and bread flour, a cake mix, brownie mix, cookies and the most important CHOCOLATE!  It’s getting closer but it’s not expected to be here for two more hours.  We’ve had some significant wind gusts but no damage.  I’m actually sitting on my porch.  I m protected by the building on all but one side.

 

I’ll let you know how my bread turns out.

I'm helping my husband this week.  We're hauling electrical supplies and equipment to Florida to help communities get their infrastructure rebuilt.  Cities and electric companies typically have some spare things on hand, but little way to prepare for an epic disaster like this. My husband's company (and likely every other in the field) are going to be filling orders like crazy for a while.

 

We made our first delivery just after Ian went through.  I've never seen such a mess, even after a tornado.  No cell service and no fuel. Our convoy brought a service truck with tires and fuel along, and we needed every bit of it.  So much debris in the road.  I thought my husband was excessive having a snow plow mounted on the service truck but we wouldn't have gotten in without it.

 

And water.  Oh my.  As we got close we drove through water that was almost up to the doors of our trucks.  

 

We've got our second load and we're preparing to head back.  Fort Myers this time.  I've heard that's the worst spot...

Umm bread is just how I like it. Brown thick crunchy crust.

 

hurricane has now made landfall the eye was about 25 miles south of us.  We have been in a period of light wind but that will pick up again as it gets further inland.  Tornado watches until late tonight.

Stay safe! Meanwhile, enjoy the bread 🍞😎

      I normally keep my headphones level set at 16.  At that level, I don't hear the bulbs breaking.  When I cranked the level up to 90, I heard them.

      I had the connection thing with girls/women as far as I recall which is about 5. Lot's of things I didn't notice because of life events. It is all mostly spelled out in three sequential blog posts, you can start here if your interested - https://stephiegurl.home.blog/2021/07/26/trying-to-look-back-through-the-gender-fog-part-1/.   Good luck.

      @awkward-yet-sweet. Yes, you're correct about transmission wires, they are mostly aluminum; particularly residential service mains (ie: from the power pole to the house). The vandalism was directed at the transformers, though. Electricity is transmitted at about 50000 volts A/C if I recall correctly. Residential power is delivered at 220 volts A/C. The transformers' function is to "step down," or reduce the voltage, the service main wires' function is to deliver the stepped down power. The internal wiring of the transformers can be either copper or aluminum. Copper is more common in transformers because it's more efficient as a conductor.

      Welcome Miss Robin,   I'm sure you will find that there are a lot of people here who have the same feelings, and experiences as you. I too, AMAB always thought I should have been a girl, and now a woman. I however took the male over compensation route, doing everything I could to prove to myself, and others that I was a Man. Well I'm done with that, and now I'm transitioning to be the woman I know myself to be. There will be others chiming in to welcome you. Look around, jump in on some conversations, you're among like people here at TransPuluseForums. This is a family friendly site.   Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Good afternoon everyone,    Here’s a video of my breaking of the lights. I found that I only have sound when I’ve clicked on the page first.  IMG_9073.MOV

      Hi im a 27 year old male or at least thats what they decided to brand me as at birth.   But im not sure about that , i have always for as long as i can remember been very different from other boys . When i was little I always wanted to play with the girls , we played with dolls and dressed up as princesses. When i got older i always had a easier time connecting with girls and spending time with them was much better then hanging out with boys my age.    This continues to this day and i have started thinking that i might feel more connected with them because I somewhere inside always wanted to be a girl. When i was younger i always dreamed at night about turning into a girl and i never missed a chance to have makeup or dress up in my moms clothes.    a few years ago i came out as Bi and i have found that I prefer to be the bottom with men that would pass as straight cis men.   I haven’t thought about this for several years but recently I broke up with my ex and since then i have started to explore with wearing womens clothes again. I bought myself a pair of high rise jeans and panties , i even bought myself a bra .  I also had a girlfriend put makeup on me.   And it just feels right , i feel comfortable in the clothes and i feel complete.   I know you people aren’t therapists but i want to see if somebody have the same experience or can relate.

      Good afternoon Stella, (only guessing)   I didn't comment on your September posting, and I love all the responses you received. My original coming out to my wife was much like yours, and the folks here were great help. I'm glad you are working through the issues that come with being in a relationship, and transgender. Suzie and I are two years into my coming out and slow transition. We have more open and honest conversations, even inside jokes now that she knows.   Happy Holidays to you and yours,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Wowie! Well...a bunch of the 80 somethings I've known had great hearing (don't even think of getting away with gossip if they were anywhere near 😷)  
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      😂 Here I was wondering if I was the only one who did that... its like I have a compulsion to do it every time the page refreshes.    I'm going to trot off now, chew on the furniture, shriek a bit, and maybe knock something off a shelf.  I don't belong in the house.

      @Petra Jane old or not, it certainly has a following.  I must admit I never heard it before the recording provided by @Colleen Henderson so thank you for that, Colleen.  I always use my iPad and it apparently doesn’t always behave itself.   Willow

      Hello,   Not to "bump" an old thread, but as I navigate what my support system looks like I've largely drifted away from the internet and as a result, have been largely absent from this site. However it's been on my mind lately that I spent a lot of time before starting my transition surfing threads here and seeing what other's experiences were, and that it might be helpful for someone else to see where mine is at.   My wife and I attend couple's counseling almost every week. We mostly discuss plans and feelings about how we can navigate this together, moving forward, whatever that may look like. There are days where I am sad, where I can sense her hesitation, where I can feel her thinking "I'm not sure how I feel." There are days where we feel more connected than ever before.   For once in a long while I feel like there are ups and downs - not a steady dragging through the mud. I am experiencing what it is like to live without major depressive disorder and largely without guilt and shame controlling my every thought and action. Starting my transition didn't solve everything. It gave me the power to stand against adversity with a self-worth I never knew before. And this is just the beginning of my journey.   I can't know what will happen for anyone reading this and wondering themselves, but I do know that I had little to no hope that anything positive would happen when I spoke the words "I am transgender" to my wife. But many positive things did. Every conversation I thought would devastate me has been un-catastrophic. And the happiness I feel in the most mundane of moments is far greater than I could have ever imagined.   This is just one woman's story, and yours might be different. Just know that for one random lady on the internet who was sure things would only get worse, things got better.   Thank you all for the words of encouragement when I needed them the most. I wish you all the best through the difficult holiday season. ❤️

      Good morning/afternoon Colleen,   When I first ran across the lights a couple of years ago, I had earbuds in, and it made me jump. I flinched, looked around, and still didn't make the connection that it was the lights at the top of the page. We have cats, so I started looking for something they may have pushed off a shelf.   Hugs,   🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
