Glad that justice is being done.  I can feel a bit of your relief... probably more intense than my feelings at the guilty verdict last month.  Hopefully the sentencing hearing will bring you some closure.

Like @awkward-yet-sweet, I'm glad you got justice. I hope you and your brother's speaking out get this jerk put away for life. In solitary confinement.

That's good news Heatherd, I'm so proud of you for standing up and going to and through the Justice System, pressing charges. I hope you are relived by the future sentencing, and can feel safe again when you're out and about. 

 

Hugs,

I have noticed that this once popular thread has gone almost stagnate.  Remember this is a social thread one were you can talk to friends. The same as sitting together having a cup of what ever you want. It is open to anybody who wants to post. 

 

I have seen that some haven't been around lately, @Bri2020 and @Elizabeth Starto name two.  have disappeared I hope that they are doing alright. However I also hope that they didn't just up and leave. Having achieved their goal and don't need our friendship.  Both me and @Willow have seen that  happen before. 

 

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning everyone

 

@heatherd I’m so glad the slow wheels of Justice Turned in the correct direction in your case.  We hear so many times that some one just gets a slap on the wrist and does it again.

 

Like @KymmieLsaid, she and I have noticed a bit of a slow down in posts.  Some long time posters have moved on and some new ones have taken their place.  And that’s a good thing.  We want this to evolve.  Kymmie created this for everyone to know they have friends and a place for conversation.  We talk about anything and everything as long as it doesn’t break the TransPulse rules.

 

Yes, it seems to be normal for people to achieve their goals and move away from groups.  I have a good friend that hasn’t been to a group meeting in a year.  I have seen her, because we stopped at their home last fall.  And I hate to admit it but I am not going to be going to the adult group much either.  However, that’s in large part because it costs too much for me to make two 150 mile trips a month and I’d much rather go to work with the teens.  And because of the increasing violence In Wilmington.

 

I suppose we each have limited time to spend writing about the many things we all have going on, and there are so many good forums here that have more specific topics.  Just remember to come here and say hi to your friends and have a beverage with us.  We are always here to comfort and console you, or share a joke or just sat “Hi old friend!”  @KymmieL created this for that very purpose.  This is your forum.  Use it.

 

hugs and love

Good morning everyone,

 

I'm back from my six month dental check up, and everything is good. The Dentist even noticed that I must have given up cigars now for a couple of years. She said she could see the change in my tongue and soft pallet. She also knows that I won't be giving up my coffee,:coffee: so the staining process is still a battle for her. I'm still working in the back yard cleaning up and making ready for Spring.

 

This coming Saturday morning my wife and I are heading to New Orleans, LA for a week of vacation. We're checking out the historical south, as well as several Civil War Battlefields. On the return trip we'll be stopping in Vickburg, MS for a couple of days. Then it's off to Nashville, TN and a Saturday Night at the Grand Ole Opry. I'll be checking in on my phone, and seeing hope people here are doing.

 

Hugs,

Hi @Jamey-Heather.  Nice to see you.

 

@Mmindy  that sounds like an interesting trip.  I’ve never been to either state. Actually I’m down to

about 10 I haven’t been to yet.  And I don’t mean stopped in an airport but spent at least an hour.  I’ve also been to the majority of the US territories.  Just not American Samoa although I spent several hours in Samoa and in Okinawa and I don’t know that I’ve stepped foot in Guam.  I think we will try to close out Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Arkansas, then Minnesota and Wisconsin this summer.  That leaves me with Alaska.  Places in Canada I’d like to go are Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

G'Day @Jamey-Heather I hope all is well with you and yours. I love that this forum has a global reach.

 

@WillowI've spent time in all of the lower 48 states thanks to Fire Departments, State Police, and Emergency Management. aka Homeland Security. Oh and I can't leave out our Armed Forces, they had us in for Base Management and Hazardous Materials Response to Bulk Deliveries. We always managed to see some local sites while traveling around teaching. Now I'm taking my wife to the most interesting locations. We hope to add Alaska, and Hawaii, completing all 50 states for me. I've also been to several locations in Mexico, and Canada when I was a Safety Manager for a Chemical Tank Truck Company. We're also looking into the British Isles, Dunkirk, and Normandy in France.

 

Well today's yard 👩‍🌾 work was enough exercise for a couple of days. They're calling for rain and high winds tonight. Saturday we return to normal February Winter Weather. 

 

Hugs,

Bri is busy with her new business as a realator on top of her existing business and profoundly busy social life (we're Facebook buds). I don't know about Liz. She's probably busy with her polycule if the other polycules I know are anything to go by, but I very much wish her well.

 

Hugs!

Just checking in with an update. Surgery went awesome. (Zero depth vaginoplasty). Took 6 hours. They were amazed that I didn't need any pain meds during recovery. Healing quickly. Rush University is a great place. Rented a studio apartment style at Hyatt House. Only one block from hospital. I walked there to doctor visits. Got to stay at hotel for recovery instead of going to skilled nursing facility. The only downside of the whole experience was that I ended up getting c.diff. doing much better now. Thanks for all your kind words. By the way, my surgeons were Dr Loren Schechter and Dr Brielle Weinstein (she/her). Both awesome. 💜

Hi y’all

 

Long day. Left at 7:30am met with my endocrinologist about 10:30  He was happy with me for all the care I am taking of myself.  Pleased that I started mammograms.  He said he usually waits 5 years on hrt but at my age and with all the testing I’ve been doing he thinks it was a good idea.  
 

we talked about body changes thus far. Body hIR, lol but completely gone not even underarm.  Breast growth, not much but nipple changes. All in all a good visit. 
 

then I picked up some water shoes I’d ordered.  I think even though they Say womens, but I think they are actually men’s sizes.   Way too big.

 

got home about 3 after a stop at Ulta for some facial treatment and a new lipstick.  We share these things.  Finally, we went out to dinner with friends and neighbors.  And got home again about 7pm.

 

definitely tired after a long day.

Well TGIF

 

Today the rain begins. 2 ½ inches over the next three days.  Good news/bad news the coastal land here is pretty flat and sandy.  Good news no mudslides. Bad news flooding can and does happen as the rain water tries to get to the ocean.  At least I have flood insurance.  I figured being on the first floor and close as I am to the swimming pool that might not be a bad idea.

 

Worst part is taking the dog out.

 

Yes @KymmieL I do realize it’s not your Friday.  But on the other hand it doesn’t really matter to me what day of the week it is, the only difference it makes is taking my injection and appointments. Boy is auto correct stupid I had appointments written out perfectly and it decided I meant appreciates and changed it.

 

well we had a nocturnal visitor. Walked by checking cars to break into. My neighbor shared ring video of someone peering in to cars and checking door handles.

That is one thing about being retired.  It kinda takes some getting used to.  "3 Day Weekends" mean nothing to me anymore.

I have my phone set up to remind me when to change my titty tape.  I would forget otherwise.

Oh, I gave up the days of the week long ago. Its just another day. just like any and all Holidays they are just a day. nothing special.  I thank uncle sugar for that.

 

As for your complexes night time visitor(s) I don't know anyone on goddesses green earth that doesn't know the sound of a 12 gauge be racked. I miss the old days when you could give a trespasser a load of rock salt.

      I've suffered anorexia once trauma and GD comfronted me. It was a coping mechanism... and I still don't eat well. working with therapist helps and might work you if indeed schedule causes your problem and you aren't rationalizing. A visit with a nutrionist could also help

      Simon & Garfunkel broke up early in their career and Paul Simon went to England and wrote songs. He heard the record company added drums and other instruments to Sound of Silence (he hated the idea) and it took off - S&G reunited and the rest is history.   Speaking of break ups - The Who nearly broke up and if their next LP didn't go well they would break up - the LP was called Tommy.   Speaking of the Who, Pete Townsend was working on another concept album called Lifehouse and it wasnb't fgoing anywhere - so he abandoned it and took some songs from it and added others and it became Who's Next.   Seals & Croft where in Jay & The Americans backing band originally.   Poor Monkees - they were chastised because they hadn't played on their first 2 albums - but neither did the Beach Boys and The Grassroots, etc., etc., etc. as a studio group called The Wrecking Crew did most of the musical work.   And speaking of not playing on their own records - Motown has the Funk Brothers, and Stax had thweir own group and of course let's not forget The Swampers.

      I agree with you, Raine. Having a label - a word with a definition - can be so very helpful in understanding yourself and others.   To me, the danger isn't in the label but, rather, in how much of society ascribes rigid norms of behavior, of dress, and of actions to them. The majority of us in the greater LGBTQ+ communities see a fluidity, perhaps, not a hard label but a sense of recognition that helps us understand ourselves better and to garner that feeling that we are not alone (although, there are even some communities of people within the greater LGBTQ+ that see more rigidity than most of us). And, as we all know, that can lead to a belief that anything that doesn't fit into the box that carries the label is wrong, or bad.   Wouldn't it be wonderful if, instead of labels, life had bar codes that offered a wider description instead of a word or phrase? Scan and see the possibilities and not just one internalized definition.   Well, this is way too deep for having just had one cup of coffee.   Thanks for opening the topic, Raine! So thought-provoking.

      I love that trans and gender-diverse folk have a bunch of labels for gender. To me, it shows that we’re making sense of it, really taking a close look at it, breaking it down. Of course as you explore something you have an urge to categorise it, that makes perfect sense to me. And, as you say, knowing what label applies to you helps you feel less alone. Coming from a time and place where there wasn’t even a word for trans, I can vouch for the importance of that.

      The problem is mostly on weekdays, when I have school. I wake up right before leaving for school, but I don't get hungry until a while after I wake up, so I usually skip breakfast. Eating too early in the day makes me feel sick, so I'm usually better off. I have the first lunch shift at my school (10:35-11:05, I believe), and I'm still not all that hungry, so I usually only end up eating about half of my lunch. I sometimes have a snack when I get home, but that's still 50/50 at best, and then I usually eat most of my dinner (though I sometimes only get through closer to 70%). I might eat a snack before bed sometimes, depending on the day. In addition to my morning sickness (not from pregnancy fyi lol, I've had it for a long time, it's just the best name I have for it), I get a lot of anxiety-induced nausea throughout the day basically the entire time I'm at school and my stomach doesn't settle all the way until I've gotten home usually, too.     I'm still at a healthy weight with this, and I eat better on weekend days since I can control the times I eat more, but I'm aware it's still not exactly a healthy eating schedule. It could still potentially lead to problems in the future, I'm assuming. Any tips on how to eat better for someone whose aversion(?) to food comes from a lot of nausea?

      CNA called an ambulance yesterday at my evening meds check. I was having chest pains and very short of breath.    They arrived shortly and I had an abnormal EKG and Tachycardia. I told them 'right bundle blockage' was normal for me from a previous event, and they saw nothing new.    They said it was my decision if I wanted to go to the hospital or not, but they really didn't see nothing new based off my history and the nitro was working well at relieving my discomfort. I decided to stay home and rest.    Night call nurse called me to inform me to rest and take it easy and the doctor will see me in the morning as well.    The CNA did remove my bra before the ambulance arrived saying, "just less to explain", and she of course gave them all my medical history referring to me as "he". The medic lifted my boob to attach the EKG lead and all three referred to me as "ma'am" the whole time.    After they left she said, "I was the only person in the room that thought of you as male?"   Birdie 💖
