I was offered to tell my story to a group of transgender kids and teens and said yes.Going to be on Saturday.The bond between the transgender teen I took in and I very tight.We have a guardianship hearing next week and I know she will be staying with me.Knows I love her for who she is and deserves a much better loving parent in her life.Her therapist says she is doing a whole lot better now

 

Hopefully the hearing goes well for the two of you.  So much riding on somebody's opinion...  What kind of venue are you speaking at?

Hi all. I thought I would check in with an update. The only thing that has changed in my life is that I just got my zero depth vaginoplasty yesterday at Rush University with Dr Schechter. All went well. Recovering well.

Good morning everyone, 

 

I just started the coffee, and now I’m sitting on the balcony of my hotel, looking South from Daytona Beach, to see if I can watch this morning’s Falcon 9 launch. 🚀 

It’s scheduled to launch around 7:00AM. Once my iPad updates, I’ll also stream it live from YouTube.

Gooooood morning coffee lovers!

 

Who know what day it is? Not you @KymmieL I know you think it’s Friday.

 

Iiiiiiitttttts hump day!  So go kiss a dromedary.  It’s also second payday, senior stretch day, rainy but warmer day,  can’t see the rocket for the clouds day.  And last but not least, it’s a good day to be with friends day.

 

No I did not get into the booze early nor did I overdose on antidepressants.  It’s just a good day to hear from everyone.

 

@heatherd so happy for you.  Transgender teens need so much to have Allie’s and hear success stories.  So many of them get bullied at school and at home.  It’s really sad to hear about the ones who get kicked out or whose parents are too blind to see their needs.

 

Thank you for doing this.

XXX  EEEEEEEEE. Sorry wrong at least this week. Today is Saturday DUH. LOL.

 

This week off Wed-Thurs one of the other asst has a funeral to go to this weekend. At least I work days Fri-Sat.

 

Good thing that I don't work. We are getting snow, I am just going to watch it out the window.

 

Well our trip to Michigan is set for next month. My wife has booked the flight, hotel and car rental. Not sure how we are getting home though. My wife only got a one way flight. So it will either be a Uhaul or as she says drive the rental home.  Unknown how much stuff she will want to bring back from the family home.

 

On a Happier note, I wish  Davie a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. 🎂

 

@heatherd it is fantastic that you care so much to take a young transgender lady into your home and life. Hope all goes well with the custody hearing. My wife is in the perfect position to do the same thing, with her position as custodian at an alternative High school. However, Her attitude towards us is a down fall. She tolerates me being different but still doesn't understand.

 

SO, Happy Hump day everyone.  Stay safe and warm.

 

Hugs,

 

Kymmie

Thank you 😊.  It's going really well. Haven't needed any pain meds. Today they let me eat and made 2 laps around the floor walking 🚶‍♀️. I haven't seen the results yet though, still have bandages there. I can barely wait to see. 

Hope you are all well.

I don't know what part of the country you are in, but I am so glad this is working out for y'all.  I wish it was this way everywhere.

I'm a parent myself, and I can't imagine ever turning on of my children away - trans, straight, or whatever.

Good morning 

 

@KymmieL, you are full of surprises aren’t you?  
 

@heatherd can you get some of these teachers to attest to the changes in her attitude?  A friend of mine is fighting over custody and her spouse is trying to play dirty.  A lot of us provided attestations, plus our friend had physical evidence that refuted the claims.  She got everything she asked for and considering the state involved that’s unusual.  Good luck.

Chair yoga is very low intensity but it does get you moving. I needed that today.  (To get some movement). 
 

i think I’ll skip aqua fitness for now until I get my body more used to activity. 
 

Good idea or bad idea?  I bought (ordered) a 5” Alexa Show today.  I went with that because we already have Alexa set up in the house.  I wanted a clock I can see in the bedroom. I paid less for this than any clock radio and most straight alarm clocks.  I do have a single google station but that’s not plugged in because at the time Alexa did more.  The issue is, which if any will last.  Both Amazon and Google claim to be losing millions annually on Alexa and they are both on the verge of shutting down certain divisions within their programs.  So, no matter which way you go, in a few short years you could be stuck with lots of worthless hardware purchased because it gave you certain security or control whether you were home or away.  Let’s face it Ring, Nest, Honeywell, Rumba and many other electronics have hung their own future on these gadgets and it they go away, then what?  Paid subscription?  Units sold at double or triple the cost to remain economically viable to Amazon or Google?  Seems like maybe Apple is the smartest by staying away.

TGIF unless you are @KymmieL then it’s “Just another Monday”

 

well, tonight is our Transgender Teens meeting and a separate meeting for parents.  I plan on only attending this meeting going forward and dropping the adult meeting.  I can always go to a meeting if I feel the need, I have three different groups available to me.

Good morning, it’s my last morning in Daytona Beach watching the sunrise at high tide. 
 

The post just before this one was supposed to be on the morning of the rocket launch. But I didn’t hit the submit button, and it was saved here. So here’s my current view.

Pretty much correct. Reminds me of a song, I hate Mondays.

 

Got kind of a shocker. but possibly short lived. The boss changed my schedule. I have all day shifts from now till next Sat. Then the following week I am back to closings so as I said short lived. unknown about the following week.

 

Coffee is warm and tasty.

 

Have a great weekend everyone

 

Hugs

Good morning 

 

Wow! What a meeting with the teens last night.  But let me step back a minute.  A girl went missing and was found dead last weekend In Wilmington.  For once it didn’t take long to identify a suspect and he was arrested here in Myrtle Beach.  There was a vigil for her Friday after work hours In Wilmington.  The person that leads our meeting was asked to speak and he did.  Yes she was one of us.  Anyway, it was obvious he was still not ready for the meeting to start, somewhat disorganized which is not normal so I took the lead and started.  He then talked about the vigil and the death.  We got into a discussion about being careful and not taking up with strangers.  That lead into a pretty good discussion about not knowing how to answer when a cis school mate asks out etc.  Somehow that evolved into a discussion about surgeries.  Sometimes, It doesn’t take much prompting to get these kids talking.  Other times they are just as happy to just have time to be with people just like themselves.

 

@KymmieL happy to hear you are getting a week of days. I was trying to plant the seed for that song. 😀 .

 

Please keep KC in your thoughts and whatever you do, don’t agree to a first date with someone you just friended on Facebook unless it’s meeting them in a busy public place.

 

Be vigilant

I'm sorry.  I hadn't heard about this.  But I don't think we hear about a lot of things.  I expect things will only get worse with all the rhetoric going around.

This is why I drive to Asheville for my support group.  Just being with someone else like me is so nice.

@Ivy Wilmington and Myrtle Beach’s media both covered this but neither mentioned she was a transgender woman.  So you would have had to see this and guess.  It was widely spread throughout the Wilmington transgender groups on Facebook, however, you would have to be a part of that and like so many similar groups these are open only to members and membership requires an introduction to a leader.  Anyway, I’m not surprised you hadn’t heard about Casey or KC as she was better known.

 

I am afraid it’s only going to get worse.  Wilmington had been considered to be LGBTQI friendly, but the numbers killed or beaten has grown dramatically.  Most of the reported deaths in Myrtle Beach have been drug or gang related but it won’t be long.  We all must be aware of our surroundings and locations and stay away from the hate as much as possible.  Let’s face it not very many of us pass 100%.

 

I don’t want to lose any friends so be safe out there

 

hugs

      @Willow  I feel for you.  Sometimes female partners just can't be pleased.  Pick, pick, pick, as you say.  There are days my GF is just determined to have a fight with somebody...anybody...for any random reason.  She'll be nothing but fangs and claws and bitter complaints.  Its rough to live with somebody like that.  But there are also days where it isn't that way, and where they're the person we met years ago who captivated our attention 100%.  Patience....

      So do I! But geez, talk about time consuming! @MaeBe, have you given much thought into getting regular professional manicures instead? (not that I've gone down that path myself)

      Ok venting time.  @KymmieL I know you’ll appreciate this on.   this morning the home health nurse was here.  I took a picture of how my wife’s wound looked to show her like I always do.  Then I asked the nurse about a line of spots no one side she explained them then asked if I had a picture from the beginning.  Which I did. Then I was scrolling through my pictures to see the progression my wife angerly says “enough”. After the nurse left we left to go to the post office, lunch and Costco.  As we are driving away from home she turns to me and says not too nicely that if I wanted to be a woman I needed to spend more effort on how I looked.  At the post office we bought a roll of package tape.  Of course it won’t peel off the roll and the longer it took to get it started the darker her looks became.  We go into Costco.  Right inside the door are tables with women’s shorts and blouses.  I ask her, do you like these shorts?  Yes this color or the other? Can’t make up her mind so I put one of each in the basket.  Next some blouses.  She picks what she wants and the size she wants. I picked up two what I thought were sleeveless for me.  (Turns out they had built in bras which I didn’t discover until I got home.  She tries on one of her tops, doesn’t like it and says to me you want them? No.   later I want to work on me paper.  Oh then I can’t watch tv?  I hate this condo.  I’ll just sit on the porch. Somewhere in all this I want the ac on and a ceiling fan.  Well that makes her made too.  She wants it 80 degrees with no fan. I prefer 76 with the fan.  And the night continues until she has made me quite annoyed with her.   pick, pick, pick.   next I’ll likely hear about the pjs I have on.  Argh!

      Wonderful HVAC went out yesterday and the temperature rose to 82 from 70. It was cooler outside. Was able to get a technician out and 340 dollars later it's working thank goodness. I'm not useful when it comes to home repairs or even car repairs. I can't even change out the alternator or even something simpler putting on a new belt. My phone quit working since last night. I was finally able to get it working again after 3 hours. The VPN was causing it to not work. I get to see my endocrinologist on the 18 so I'm excited for that. Girlfriend was very sorry that she hasn't been able to spend a lot of time with me. She told me that she was worried that I would leave her. I reassured her that as long as she treats me right I won't leave her. She owns and operates a floral store. I can't wait till she can live with me down here permanently. She said she'll me transition more with surgeries and makeup. Looking forward to being able to have my nails done. I got hit on by a trans woman and she wouldn't stop after I told her I already have a girlfriend so I blocked her and showed the messenger chat to my girlfriend. She was grateful of what I did.

      Sorry about your not so peaceful visit. Family can sure be jerks. I have a final answer if my mom would ever accept me as Ashley. I simply asked if she would put Happy Birthday Ashley. She said she would never call me that. To her I won't anything but Scott to her. She said we could put Happy Birthday or she just wouldn't make it. I hope you are better now. BTW I love your nails! Good luck on the volunteer opportunity.

      Hi, Lilis.    Welcome to Transgender Pulse.  Nice to meet you!   Please feel free to wander around the various forums, join in the discussions and start new threads.  You will find that this is a very supportive community.
    • Lilis
      Hi everyone, I'm Lilith or Lilis, and I'm thrilled to join this community! I'm a transwomen, but for as long as I can remember, there hasn't been one neat label that's felt quite right for our gender identity.  I say "our" because I share my body with a man, and we have walked a really exciting journey together  for many years. In this one body we both flow and change intermittently depending  on who is present, the changes and the flow could be daily and (or) sometimes weekly, and just recently, the term 'gender fluid' has really resonated with us. It's has been a very challenging journey ever since puberty our body went through some changes, and developed some curvy feminine features those similar to cis-gender girls, and nothing like the other cis-gender boys. I think this was when I was discovered but I was ignore for many years after that. This new body brought a lot of confusion and embarrassment, the boys locker rooms was a nightmare to change clothes without being teased or stare at by other boys, also shirtless activities such as the beach and at the pool were also humiliating when people would stare and say hurtful things. We learned from the medical professionals a little bit of what was happening and they called it gynecomastia, and something about a hormone imbalance. Our father wasn't to happy about the news and wanted to get this fixed asap with surgery or with what ever means were available at the time. But mother convinced him to wait and see if it would go away after puberty. Luckily for me it never went away so we have been together ever since right into adulthood. During this time I would be suppressed, or ignored most of the time and not allowed to exist, but I was a constant reminder every time shirts came off in public and private body inspections. Finally at around the age of 30 years old something changed. When our cis-gender girlfriend at the time was at work and we were both home alone we experimented with her clothes, wigs, makeup, and everything in her wardrobe. I think this was the turning point in the acceptance of me. Finally I was acknowledged and today we're both happy with each other, we live alone and like I said at the beginning of my post we share the same body intermittently depending who is present. Sometimes it's all me the other times it's all him, back and forth we go. We joined this community because exploring the feminine side of us has been both exciting and confusing at times. This forum feels like a welcoming space where we can connect with others who understand the complexities of our gender identity.   Also we just started hrt on this past Monday June 10th, 2024 as discussed with our therapist and medical professionals. We're on low dose estradiol, and low dose  spironolactone in an effort to create a balanced feminine and masculine look for both of us with our body.  Oh, don't worry about him. It's not likely he will join the forum he is into other things. Therefore, when I am present on this forums,  it would  be only me Lilis and I go by the pronouns she/her.    Again, I am happy to be here and thanks for having me.

      @DreamWalker I came out to my wife of 20+ years a few weeks ago. We agreed to try couple's counseling and have been working with a therapist for 3 weeks now. I think overall it has been very positive. It's providing a channel of communication that would otherwise be very awkward at the least and is helping us set up some ways to move forward. For example, I'm slowly presenting as Justine more and more around her ... the key word being 'slow'. If there's a day where she feels like she just can't handle it, she can me a text before she comes home from work so I can 'turn down the volume'. She hasn't done that yet, but the option is there and having that 'switch' is comforting to her. I'm very early in my exploration though and the compromises don't currently cause me a great deal of distress. Best wishes to you, I'm sure you'll find a way to move forward that works for you!
