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.

No, it isn't true.

Nobody's worth as a person is determined by producing babies.

We are each who we are, and I suspect for reasons.

"Shall we not take the adventure that comes to us?"  I believe a quote from one of the Narnia books. (although I may have gotten it wrong - it's been a long time)

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.

Besides, an hour alone with me and his wife might be forgotten. 🤭

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

I wonder if she’ll ever notice. I’m sorry for for what you’re going through.

I’ve been a bad girl today. I tried to wake up for church and then I laid down and the next thing I notice is me waking up after church is over. I guess I needed it.

Somebody/something is looking out for you.  I'm not sure it matters what you call them.

The brain understands it... but the rest of me doubts it.  Motherhood and fatherhood are so important in our community and faith.  And me... sometimes I feel like I don't have as much of a place in that.

 

I resent the world and I resent the people who control the world for what they did to our environment that made me this way.  They stole from me what I could have been, before I even had a chance to become anything.  I'm not an aggressive or angry person...it really isn't my normal nature.  I try to love and forgive.  But lately I do not have kind thoughts toward the people who have influence in politics and the corporate world.  My husband has commented that I've seemed kind of angry during the last year.  I guess that's mostly a facet of hidden depression.

Well, Saturday. my wife really got on me, about the dog digging up her plants, Etc. In the back yard. I was so upset. I didn't say a word. I just left. I went and took care of a friends dogs. the to my work to pick up lug nuts I ordered. and put them on in the parking lot. I had our explorer I parked at the end of the street. Our normal place for it.

 

Our youngest came by. "OH, dinner is ready." He was going out to look for me.

 

Once I got back home me and the wife got into it. A friend of hers saw me in a dress. I said, so.  She kept on and on about not understanding my depression. understanding depression period. We went back and fourth. Even mentioning the "D" word. I told her I'd leave and she could have the house. She would just walk away from it. We finally calmed down. and ate. our son, just up an left, we were getting so heated. Everything seems OK now.

 

I am just Leary about everything right now.

I found out today that the acting manager wanted me to start the 7:30-4:30 shift today. and she will discuss it with the manager when he is in on Wednesday.

Good morning everyone, 

 

We’re still holding onto Summer temperatures here in Central Indiana, with rain and dropping temperatures into the upper thirties by the weekend. I’m truly ready for Autumn and cooler weather.

I'm thinking it hits here Saturday.  Guess it will be time to start closing windows and doors again.  This house is pretty much open all summer.

Good morning everyone,:coffee::coffee::coffee:

 

Tiffany, it's sunny and 54°F outside. I woke up knowing that my wife would be opening the doors and windows this morning. So before going out to brew coffee. I pulled on over the knee socks (compression) black leggings, black long-sleeve shirt, topped off with a plaid flannel shirt(black and red). I know this sounds like it should be under the "What are you wearing" thread, but it's so cool in the house right now that you can see the steam wafting up from the coffee cup. The cats are going crazy as they are overwhelmed by the fresh smells and the song birds they're experiencing through the screens. I'm actually having to take typing breaks to hold the warm coffee cup in my hands to warm them up. Not because they're cold, but the arthritis has them feeling stiff and curled up. This is the first October in decades that I haven't spent the first weekends in the woods for Fall Archery Season, and truthfully I don't regret missing it this year.

 

Hugs

We had a new girl start at the store. Another driver, the manager had her pair up with me to show her where our customers are. We hit it off great. I actually think I found a friend. I couldn't believe how well we get along. She has a trans daughter that unfortunately still lives with her abusive x husband. So, she is totally accepting.

 

I hope she sticks around awhile.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

      Sounds like a mullet! lol   My hair is continuing to grow. The longer it gets, the easier it is for it to find its natural style. After I dry it out of the shower, it actually parts itself. Today, I manually parted it off center and initially brushed it behind my ears but was then happy to let it do its thing and flop where it wanted to. Looking in the mirror at times, I became the sort of woman with pretty hair that I often envy in public. It is so affirming!

      It's so hard to keep up with all the goings on when you don't visit here for a while!   @Birdie, my condolences. Losing someone is never easy, but more so if they are taken before time.    @Ashley0616, I'm also sorry for your loss. My Cousin Count presently sits at 13 survivors from 17 born. It's scary, especially considering that I'm one of the older ones! I also sincerely hope that someday you get out of that darn dating revolving door too!   Just to prove that as one door closes another one opens, my wife and I became grandparents again today! A yet un-named girl born to my son and daughter in law, a couple of weeks early, but otherwise in perfect health. It's Girl City in my family; I have one son and two daughters, one daughter in law, and now two granddaughters. Oh, and a wife and a mother!

      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

      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.
