Good morning everyone!! I've finished my first cup of coffee and am catching up on the news and things here on the forum. 

 

I hope your doctor's appointment went as expected @KathyLauren

 

I'm still on an emotional high after yesterday afternoon's full-blown reveal with my wife. We sat at our basement bar for a drink together later in the day - both in skirts and sweaters - and talked for almost 2 hours. We had so much fun and agreed to do it on a regular basis.

 

Be safe and enjoy this day!

@April Marie So happy for you.

 

Well the problems in MI keep going. Yesterday we receive a letter from the evidence dept of the Sheriff's dept. They had some valuables that was secured from my brother in laws. US currency. We have 6 months to claim it. Of course, in person.  The wife called the gal she talked to told her that we shouldn't have had the run around we did. She is going to see if they can send the cash. I guess time will tell. 

 

Work has been about the same favoritism excels there.  While I get to make the delivery while the 2 buddies of the commercial  guy gets to stay around BS. Oh, well. I am out on the road listening to the radio.

 

Hugs,

Thank you @KymmieL Even my morning workout didn't wipe the smile off my face.

 

I hope that they are able to send the money instead of you having to make another trip. It certainly seems counter-productive to have you spend money to claim money.

 

I've got my AirPods in and listening to a random mix of music. Up now? Who Can It Be Now? By Men at work. Or with the men at your work place, Men (Not) at Work. 

 

Stay strong, sweetie! Our thoughts are with you.

On the upside, maybe we can manage to see each other if you have to come back.

Good morning everyone,

 

It's another unusually warm March day here in Central Indiana. I'm putting on the Lumber-Jane duty, and safety gear to finish taking down the large Sugar Maple in the back yard. Because it's in the Northeast corner of the yard, it doesn't shade the yard, but it drops all the helicopter seeds, and leafs in the yard for me to rake. I'm to old for that! I have a 16' extension ladder that allowed me to fell/trim three smaller shoots of the tree. My son is bringing over his 28' extension ladder this afternoon, so I can reach higher up, and drop the top sections in a manor that they won't damage shared fencing between my neighbor's yard, and mine. Two weeks ago when I dropped the first sections of the tree, my neighbor said she watched from her kitchen window hoping and praying I didn't hurt myself. I said she was probably video tapping me, saying this is going to go viral... She laughed and said no, no, it was for insurance purposes only.

 

Hugs,

@Jackie C. Well we are looking later in the summer to go back. My wife wants to go to our property(now) up by Mio. and spread her families ashes. Maybe then we can. I am still waiting on a date for our 40th reunion. While we were in MI. she suggested that I fly. Just me.  IMHO, that would be fantastic. Then Kymmie would make an appearance in MI.  And I so would rent a convertible. :P

 

Hugs

Good morning everyone. Early morning duties are done and my first cup of coffee is making its way into my system. Time to read the paper...and then head back to bed for an hour or so before starting the day for real. House cleaning day for us.

 

Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend?

Congratulations, Heather, about the sentencing. 50 years isn't enough, imho, but it sure looks like the judge threw the book at this creep. I'm glad for you and your brother.

Oh, Heatherd. I am so happy for you, and that this creep is off the street.

 

Getting used to my new position. Now I don't have to answer phones or deal with customers. Now just hand my part off and I am out of there.

 

My wife lost her Uncle yesterday. After a 10 yr battle with the big C.

 

Everything is going good. Been able and remembered to change my E patches. I am going to try and keep regular. Is that sounding to girlie, great. LOL

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

Friday morning

 

We’ve  had a rough week.  An unplanned trip to Charleston to see a doctor.  And a couple of other things, I’m not ready to share, but I will when I know more.  So we are taking a lazy day at home.

 

I need to make bread today.  Each time I make it I learn another trick.  And I can tell you, temperature during kneeling and rise make a huge difference with the yeast.  Too cold, it doesn’t activate to warm kills it.  Sealing the top of the loaf before the final rise is the latest.  I wonder what I’ll learn today.  I do know I need different bread pans but I haven’t shopped for them yet.  The closest kitchen store is 20 miles from here although there is a bed bath and beyond just 6miles.  They just don’t always have the best price and quality combinations.

 

after I got my Endocrinologist to make this most recent change to my estradiol I feel much better.  Hot flashes are gone.  Migraines are all but gone.  Too early to know if I am going to see any body changes, and I don’t know my levels yet.  But for once he has given me a specific day of the week to get my blood drawn.  All so he can match the level to my cycle.  It will better reflect my average.

 

Have a good day

Excellent news.  I'm not surprised that he had a prior record.  The guy who hurt me also had a prior misdemeanor violence charge.  

 

Hopefully 50 years will keep him away.  Since he's got a previous record, he won't be eligible for parole for a very long time, if ever.  People like that tend to mess up their parole chances by getting into more trouble inside prison.

Good morning, everyone! I've been sitting here reading and drinking coffee - if you enjoy reading I recommend The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai - and realized I'd forgotten to check in here. Ugly weather here with snow, sleet, rain, wind. Yuk.

 

I hope next week is a better one for you @Willow and that everything turns out OK. I'm glad that your endocrinologist is listening to your input and making the necessary changes to the dosage level. Sending you good thoughts!!

 

I think today will be another good day to get a fire going and just sit and read. 

 

Stay safe and warm.

Good morning all y’all.  
 

Someone was saying that y’all is singular and all y’all is plural.  Not too sure about that but hey! I grew up a Yankee what do I know.

 

So yesterday I indicated that I had some pending news.  I believe I can tell you now, I have a part-time job offer.  Yes a real one not a scam on the internet.  It would be 6 hours a day, most every weekend 4 or 5 days a week.  I can see the place from here as it is just across the highway.  Nothing glamorous but it will put some money in the bank so that I can get ahead.  Let’s face it, social security doesn’t keep up with inflation.  Dress code is easy, black or blue denim no holes and a T-shirt, comfortable shoes that cover toes and heels.  Some lifting but nothing outrageous.

 

Yet another beautiful day here.  73 a few cirrus clouds.  Ocean temperature is about 60 so I suppose to some of you it’s time to start going to the beach.  To me it’s got a ways to go for that.

Out here, 60s can be shorts weather for some. Not this girl. But I am cold blooded. I can sit in front of the heat vent for hours. Just enjoying the warmth. To bad our house has the vents on the ceiling.

 

Hugs, All

      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 💖

      I think your view makes perfect sense, Raine.  Labels and categories can help us make sense out of something confusing, bring order to chaos, set priorities, establish groups of similar things, and many other uses.  Labels are often essential in hard science and the social sciences, too.  But they can certainly be misused and become destructive.   Carolyn Marie
    • RaineOnYourParade
      In some ways, things have been better, but they've stayed the same in other ways. I haven't had any big changes at home or been allowed to really start transitioning much, and my anxiety kind of impedes my ability to correct strangers and such. In some ways, I feel like my anxiety surrounding my gender got a bit worse following coming out to my parents.   However, it does change things with my friends, and it allows me to feel more comfortable and safe with them, like I could take off a heavy mask. For that, I'm very grateful, since that's one less place I have to be afraidi.
    • RaineOnYourParade
      I know a lot of people don't like labels, and they can be harmful, but I don't think they're all bad personally   If there's a name for something, you know you're not the only one experiencing it, and that can make things a little less scary   If I didn't ever hear the label "transgender man", I'd still be wondering why I felt the way I did, and what was wrong with me   If I didn't know labels like "pansexual", I would still be beating myself up for having feelings for people of all different genders   So, while this doesn't apply to everyone, labels did help me some -- the problem isn't labels in themselves, but rather when labels are used against people or as a stereotype    ...does this count as a hot take?  💀
    • RaineOnYourParade
      The metaphor definitely applies, but I doubt it was intentional (mostly due to the time of release).
    • Carolyn Marie
      There were 3.5 million public school teachers in the U.S. in 2021-22.  If you accept the estimate that trans folk make up around 1.5% of the population, that results in over 52,000 trans teachers.  That's quite a lot, actually.  I personally know four, including two college professors.    Carolyn Marie

      Given that the story was published in book form in 1883 by C. Collodi, I think it's safe to say that the puppet and it's story has no relation to transgender issues, unless it can be shown that the author was transgender themself.   Carolyn Marie

      Not me, but I know my husband has a slight curve due to bad discs and pain.  Perhaps its something related to your time in the military?  I know that soldiers tend to carry WAY too much backpack weight, and that can cause back and knee issues even for the young. 
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      I hid my attraction to girls for years.  And even though the process of my parents finding out was painful, it was a relief to get it over with.  I didn't hide my gender issues like that, but I didn't have to.  When I thought I was genderfluid, my partners knew.  Once I figured out that I probably should have been born a boy, I talked about it pretty soon after.  I anticipated rejection from my husband, and was relieved to find deeper love instead.  Overall, it has worked for me.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      I'm kind of surprised there are any.  I mean, trans folks are a tiny minority of the population, and teachers aren't a huge part of the population.  So...a minority of a minority, its not like they would be very common.    As for "ending" them, pretty sure that's not legal.  Discrimination in hiring for government jobs was phased out a long time ago.  There's a big difference between private schools and public schools.
