I know I need it but I also want to have more spending money left when we visit Artes and Crafts in Hartford tomorrow.

rainbow unicorn


Love it. You don't want to live with regret! And it will look so pretty with your hair color.

So I bought a corset online and I have been trying to get used to wearing it. It's different and a little difficult to get used to. But so sexy! My spouse and her mama tell me they wish they had my body every day. 🤣 


Anyone have any suggestions on how to get used to a corset? It would be much appreciated!

Love the dress Bri and you look fab in it.

Kaltia  wear the corset for a few hours everyday no need to cinch it up real tight at first  to just get used to it.

I used to wear a corset a lot but just let it be known they aren't comfortable at all.

Oh to add if you think a corset will give you a more feminine figure thats not always the case.

If you were born with no hips and a tiny butt a corset won't help much.

I got my souvenir Mackinac hoodie. I saw other one I really wanted but thought the rainbow unicorn may have be a little to much “on point“. 




Liz, you look great, and most of all comfortable for a Fall day on the island. I’m afraid the unicorn 🦄 would have been way too much for my Suzie. It’s good to read that your trip is going well. Love the Fudge.

Here’s the hoodie I bought during our Michigan Fall Colors vacation.

That's what I'm doing. I actually find it fairly comfortable. Not super comfortable, but it feels right.

I have a nice butt and my hips are pretty fem already. Literally just got it for the style... Kind of going for steampunk and goth look. 


My wife, her mom and sister all said they hate me for my body... And I've only just begun my life long journey. 😁

@Kaltia_Atlas  after I put mine on and lace it, I do a couple side bends and a waist torso wriggle. It kind of helps set the laces and distributes the tension across all the laces. It will also form the arc of the fabric to your body. Normal movements do it too, but slower. look at your corset after you take it off… it will be all shaped and curvy, when it started flat!

busy day: electrolysis followed by a shift at the consignment shop.  At least i'm dressed to kill. lol. I haven't worn this since March so I was happy they still fit.  And the top finally works now that I have boobs ;).  The plunge top looked a little silly and big when there was nothing to fill it. I probably need a tummy control garment though since I put back on about 7lbs in the last month.  Inspiration to get my eating back under control.

Love the new hair colour Emily!


I'm switching to a more fall look :(. I will miss summer dresses.

Today is an errands day so went a bit more utilitarian. The red top is a sleeveless flared bottom top I tucked in a bit. my earrings are a "denim" shade ceramic hearts. I really need to up my belt collection for fall.

So, I’m wearing black again today and some new earrings I got over the weekend. 


Fortunately, black looks good on you. You'd be in pretty dire straits otherwise.

I don't have a good today picture, been busy, so I'll post an old one of me.

This was taken by the news media in Atlanta, Georgia years ago. It was a big event, 

I was picked out along with other trans ladies, not knowing what was next.


I think this was taken in 2004, I was in a world I never knew existed. 


So we ladies are sat down in a very nice big room with these reporters, and others,

Very nice fancy drinks and then the prep talk. We will release you one at a time, and they call the first one.

Then the next one, and we others are still in the dark? What is going on?.


Linda your turn. I walk to the door, get my last briefing...from a birth woman!!  I'm in a dress at one of the largest conventions in the world (Southern Comfort Conference)  for trans people, and you tell me don't look from side to side, there will be many people there, we want you to focus on the steps, and not the cameras.


(I'm thinking no big deal, I'm a tough girl, I got four years under my belt in the trans world)


Then the door opens, and I nearly peed myself. I had never seen so many flashing lights at me. I was totally shocked, little tough girl listened to the woman and followed her directions. I had no choice, I was so scared.


Make the walk, make the walk!!!..don't look around, 


I made the walk, What was at the bottom was the news media, taking pictures of me, flashing lights, a welcome venue by the news media, strange thing was those along the side of the steps, so many along the side lines out of view, taken pictures, and all I did was watch the steps. I made the picture, they took this, and all I did was follow directions.

This is me wondering, how do I tell my story.

At this time in my life I'm faced with questions and answers

and I have no answer.

So young back then.

Scared is an under statement, 


My thoughts are, where do I go from here, how do I get there and most important, how do I gain trust from those that know me.


I admit it has been a long struggle. I admit  I get short with anger at times, I admit, I'm only human.


I'm a lot older now, hardened so to speak. I have no answers, I do not know what is best, We have our 

agendas. All we can do is share our life and move on. 


So what am I trying to say?


I will leave that to your thoughts.

I've been away for a while, but you gals just keep looking better all the time.  It's fun to watch, and reminds me to trust the process.  Just a little movement each day can add up to an amazing difference.

You're all getting so darn cute!

      This is a big part of it. I had internalized transphobia for years - "I'm not like that!"

      I don't want to pretend anymore.

      Thank you for sharing this. I wish I had the ability to have conversations like this.

      My wife initially set a boundary at “no surgery” but has since changed her mind, or become resigned to that surgery actually occurring. I discuss everything with her, but it is my decision. She has acknowledged that she has also changed during our 14 years together (she’s an aneurism survivor) and wants to continue our relationship as a lesbian couple. The sad thing is, or really the thing that is hard for me to deal with is that she is very dependent on me. She doesn’t earn a living wage, has no credit, and long ago gave up helping to manage our finances. I feel that she is trapped and her support for me is due to not having any other choice. This breaks my heart.

      Since on HRT, my hair has actually grown back some but it will never do much. I haven't had much hair on top for too long. It's wig time. I went to Hair Club recently. They have a hair transplant system but I don't have enough donor hair. They have another system where they glue on hair that looks natural. It's only for the wealthy. We're talking about $4,500 to start with and $350 every few months to replace it for the rest of your life. Not for me. A good synthetic wig can look awesome. Just wash and put on stand to dry. Never loses it's shape. A real hair wig has to be styled like any other cis womans hair.

      @DianaW I thought I was reading my own entry except I've been married 28 years and my wife is in the same mindset. We just had an explosion yesterday with me on HRT for nearing a year and a half. Just finally found a separate therapist she plans to see. I have an incredible therapist and I must say find one you like as soon as you can because it is vital for you. Best Heather

      Parting ways with someone that you shared your deepest thoughts with has to be hard. It sounds like your new therapist will be good for you though. Hugs

      This brought me to tears. So sad. That very easily could have been my spouse. I firmly believe it was divine intervention that stopped me from ending myself. I am so thankfull.

      I had my last session with my other therapist last night. It was surprisingly hard despite the negativity I had been feeling over the last couple sessions. We skimmed over what had been worked on and I how feel now about thing. I think I really surprised him at one point, he had asked if I remember our start date and how sessions we've had. Not only did I know the exact  date, off the top of my head, but also how many sessions we had and the fact that the day and time were changed after 2 weeks.  When the clock ran out I did have to end things rather abruptly as it was getting hard to hold back the tears. It was hard to say good bye and I did actually cry a little afterwards but it was for the best. Now that I've already had the first meet and greet with the new one last week and just ended with the old, it feels like a passing of the baton as I start a more definitive leg of my journey.    Gotta go for now; have no idea what I'm wearing today.

      I think this is the way it is for a great many of us. I've been married for over 50 years. I started taking transitioning stuff without telling her. I think that made it easier for me when I came out to her. Then it wasn't a question of me starting HRT. It was a question of what is safest for me to take. I'm not suggesting that this is what you should do though. Starting this way caused HUGE trust issues, a lot more than if I would have talked with her about it beforehand. Communication has always been a big problem with me. I'm learning how to now. Since then, every step I take is a huge step for her to accept, almost game ending for us. It's a delicate balance between my moving forward and holding back to wait for her acceptance. My spouse is in end stages of autoimmune pancreatitis. She was born with it. She is never below level 4 pain even with heavy pain meds. We're alike in that I didn't figure myself out till recently. Not till after I retired and had more time to dwell on things. My spouse didn't sign up for this either. It will never be the way it was between us, but we are working through it.  I wish you well. Hang in there. Don't give up. You deserve to be happy with yourself. I don't regret transitioning at all. I am so much happire now. I can never go back to who I was. Hugs.

      faceapp is really kind of useless for seeing what you'd look like. I look absolutely nothing like my faceapp pics from before I transitioned! But I'm happy with what I got/am getting anyways   also I don't know why but snapchat and faceapp filters always gave me the most awful dysphoria, so I stopped using them and was happier as a result.

      Students had been encouraged to wear rainbow colors to school on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day, as part of the celebration, which was hosted on campus by the Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club in support of people who publicly “come out” as a member of the LGBTQ community, said Heather Bailey, a Windsor Unified School District spokeswoman.   https://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/news/group-of-windsor-high-students-don-red-white-and-blue-and-gadsen-flag-to-p/?taid=617233c17778c400018f0c1a&utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=twitter
