Congrats on a brand new healthy baby girl.

I have been an unofficial midwife at several home births.  It is an amazing moment.  And yes I am jealous in a way, and of the bond in nursing a child.

But I also was made the way I was.

My partner whom is a FTM and I went to event for transgender people last night.We were told that we were the most inspirational transgender couple they met too.Plus we met a 14 year old MTF there for the first time.She loved it being there for the first time and told her story.Plus she is lucky to have her parents for support.Said they see her much happier since coming out finally back in March.Wanted a picture taken with us and did.Get to check out a new nail salon out this morning.Found out it is transgender friendly.The last place I went changed owners,the new owner told me get lost

I'm glad that you have given a lot of inspiration and that getting to met someone like that. That stinks though about getting kicked out of a nail saloon. I haven't had my nails done yet which I'm kind of scared.

Strange enough, my 'stepchildren' are much closer to me.

Good morning Birdie,

 

This is supporting the idea that blood make you related, love make you family. It’s been said many times here on TPF that found family are more loving than blood family. 


Hugs

Sad to report that my friend that works at the food court quit. I used to catch up on gossip every weekend 😐

That really sucks. I guess they aren’t only strict on y’all but employees too. Maybe some new management would make things easier

Oh no, my friend in the food court at the mall quit. Not the day-centre.

Food service workers aren't always treated very well.

Well my wife just got home from helping our oldest son move. So she was telling me things that happened. Then she asked me, A meeting with your girlfriends on Tuesday. Yeah I told her. So our youngest is back to his old ways of blabbing about me to my wife. He told me that he had reconsidered his stand on me and was accepting. With blabbing to the wife and what he said on Wednesday. I am not so sure anymore. 

 

I tell my wife about the BS my company did about my appointment. She winds up siding with them. Saying she and our youngest have to put in for a half day off for their appointments.  It has been 2 weeks since I put all the little things that tell my wife I love her. Yet, She hasn't notice them gone. I'm still not saying anything about them.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

No, they are not treated well, unfortunately. 

I used to bring her a Diet Dr. Pepper every week.

Dianne Feinstein was at the center of a key LGBTQ+ moment. She’s being lauded as an evolving ally. “Senator Feinstein stood with our community back when few others did, fighting for funding and action to combat the AIDS crisis when most elected officials chose to look away,” the advocacy group Equality California said in a news release Friday.

While she may have been right on that issue, where I live we believe she was wrong on a whole bunch of other things.  And probably one of the biggest opponents of the 2nd Amendment, which is pretty much the canary-in-the-coal-mine.  I won't comment further here, as that would belong in the Politics area.

I understand this to a point. 

Two years of testosterone treatments have left their mark on me, and something 'I never wanted' (parents choice).

But I also was made the way I was.

 

I was more fine with it yesterday than I am today.  IDK why.  I'm normally not a very depressed person, but today I spent a good part of the day feeling icky.  Infertile, unproductive, and every bit the worthless little creature my mother always told me I was.  The logical side of my brain tells me it isn't true.  The emotional side....won.  It sucks, since I feel kind of selfish for having those emotions when I need to be helping.  And I didn't want to talk with my husband about it, since he needs to feel positively about his new daughter instead of dealing with my stuff. 

 

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I get those days too, and it's 'triggers' that bring it on for me. Just a week ago it got me, and I almost made a very poor choice. 

I try and focus on the wonderful things that life has brought for me. Like my stepdaughter calling me 4-5 times a day just to 'check on me'. Perhaps that my forced retirement is as 'stable' as it is, I lack nothing. 

There are so many great things that happen to us everyday that pretty much go unnoticed until we really look. 😉

Yesterday the bus driver asked me, "where are you from ma'am, you definitely are not from Texas?"

 

Considering I've been here since grade school, you would have thought my accent would have faded by now. 🤔

Arghhh, that wasn't a proposition!

 

Birdie and I have played the 'Strine' game elsewhere; it is a comedic look at the phonetics of the Aussie accent.

      Good morning   so much happened since my last visit and that was just yesterday.  Back to 4am today, off tomorrow my schedule bounces around all week but Friday morning I leave for my weekend of Lay ministry school.    let’s see, guy who wanted to see your DL, run away and block that one.  Doesn’t sound right to me. Sorry for your losses this week.  Always sad to loos a good friend they are so hard to come by, and same is true with cousins, although I never knew any of mine.     One thing I don’t have and never will is a LBD. Too old to do one any justice.  Besides where does one hide the 45?     Don’t meet a stranger without one!   well gotta try to walk the dog.  It’s raining but not cold.     and don’t take everything I say to heart.  Sometimes my sense of humor is a lot worse than I realize.  LOL   Willow

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sarah.  I think this site will live up to your expectations as a friendly, supportive and knowledgeable place.  I know that transition can be stressful and daunting and we've all been where you are now at some point.  I do hope that you are seeing, or have seen, a gender therapist or at least and M.D. to ensure that your hormone use is safe and appropriate.  We want everyone to be safe, because hormones can be dangerous if not done correctly with good supervision.  If you don;t have a gender therapist, that would be help to add to your tool kit, too.   Please ask any questions that come to mind.  The only thing we can't answer is about hormone dosages.  Please have a look around and enjoy your time here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Update:  Judge blocked the AG until a hearing on March 25.  I don't think that hearing will go well for the Bully In Chief.   https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/judge-blocks-texas-collecting-info-transgender-children-receiving-107731447   Carolyn Marie

      PFLAG and the families have some powerful legal minds working for them.  Paxton may please his base of bigots, but he won't win.  I think he knows it, too.   Carolyn Marie

      This one is not that far "off the wall." They just consider us mentally ill anyway.  We need to be corrected somehow - kinda like the Chinese do with the Uyghurs.  Time to break out the pink triangles.

      hi i guess this is where i tell you about myself and some goings on. my quick and dirty trans history about 20 off years ago I confessed to my best friend about wanting to be a girl she was super supportive said she'd get everyone to use whatever name I want and treat me like one of the girls at the time I didn't know transitioning really existed the LGBT was really just an LG so I didn't think it was actually possible to more than cross dress and dismissed the idea and forgot about until 6 years ago I met a transwoman in a Discord community which and awoken 20 year old memories, a few years later after self debate I admitted to myself that I was trans eventually came out to a few people and in October of last year started taking hormones. The actually transitioning is taking time I duelmode mainly being my true self at home for right now. How I ended up here: I wasn't prepare for the hormones which have been a struggle wild mood swings and just constant anxiety attacks, I've only recently been able to clear my head and quell my anxiety with medication enough to function. I had some bad moment and alienated myself from some people dear to me and I'm questioning whether to keep going or not. I've been doing a lot to improve my situation picking myself up doing self care but I realize I can't do this on my own so I've been adding to my support network, people in my circles, support groups and communities like here. From what I read so far this feels like a wonderful community and I look forward to being apart of it. Thank you

      All I can do is shake my head. This will be followed by the other 19 R states soon enough. They are more persistent than piranha. A few days ago I received an email from a recruiter trying to recruit me to a hospital in Oklahoma. I told them that I was a transgender female and would not consider Oklahoma. The recruiter could have cared less.   Sadly, I am not sure the rest of the public really cares what happens to us. There is going to be some massive pain down the road regardless of who wins the national election. I think the next logical move is that they will try to roll back the insurance coverages we gained with private insurers.   Short of a huge blue wave hitting the country, they have zeroed in on us. I just wonder if there will be Schutzstaffel troops coming to take us away. Seems like the only missing piece.

      Had fun and he was great to me treating me right.Loved the LBD I was wearing.I am much happier including him.Said he has found the right transgender woman in his life,me.

      Ivy, these folks are beyond psychotic. Make America Germany Already. You could not make this stuff up. I am waiting for an initiative to be launched requiring us to go to a re-education camp, and receive forced HRT of our birth gender. Sometimes there are no words that one can express...
