I was just wondering if you were going to wear shoes to the doctor.

Sh...oos? What are sh...oos? 😆

 

Of course, but they're going to have to be my snow runners. I'll take a last image before heading out the door tomorrow to prove it. lol.

 

Thanks for the compliment as well. 😊

There is no reason to rush and when you feel the time is right then go for it. It's a decision that only you can make.

What I will say is the day you decide to venture out you will wonder what took you so long LOL

Going after some firewood today, so it will be bibs, boots, and lots of warm stuff.

Just so you all know, I did wear shoes today. Well, my snow boots. See image below. After my appointment I went grocery shopping, still dressed up, went to the lawyer's to sign a revision to the divorce agreement and then went to the new thrift shop in town where I was boring and only bought a fabric belt so I can get rid of my leather one.

 

I can't express how liberating and gratifying it was to just get out there as myself. I was so happy. But now I have to get ready for work and don the boy clothes, but this too shall eventually change.

So glad you had the opportunity to get out and be yourself.

The ladies in the thrift store I go to all the time know me by name and treat me like any other female.

Come to think of it I don't think any of them know I was born male.

Thats because I never felt the need to tell them otherwise.

Being trans is hard enough and I made a decision years ago not to mention it and demand they accept me like some trans people do.

One quick way to start trouble for yourself is demand things from people. Just walk in do your business and be friendly.

@Niamhooh those boots!!!!

Speaking of boots. I had some time to kill yesterday and just happened to be next to a DSW and found these on the clearance rack.  I promised my wife to hold off on more shoes until our finances catch up a bit and it was VERY hard to not walk on out with these for only $48.  Not often you find inexpensive size 12 boots that fit well and look good.  I was a good girl though ;'(

Oh hey @Drayse! I just bought a pair of waterproof boots for snow-stuff myself. Naturally they'll arrive well after the snow hits tonight.

 

@Bri2020, I like those boots too! That's a nice heel too. I want some. I guarantee they don't come in size Sasquatch, but I'd definitely wear those.

 

@Teri Anne, I completely agree. I don't feel the need to stuff being trans down anybody's throat. I'll wear my flag mask to the gym occasionally, but allies are allowed to wear the colors too. It honestly never occurred to me to be in anybody's face about it. I'm trans. I'm trying to live my best life. I am a skinny bitch (seriously, I'm built like a popsicle stick) and none of it involves spectators.

 

Hugs!

Bri I would jump on those boots they are too cute.The heel is perfect for me.

Jackie the way I look at it me being trans is my business and not some sort of  thing I have to tell anyone. Oh sure some people figure it out  but by that time its a moot point.

I understand some feel the need to tell everyone they know but sometimes that causes more problems.

Absolutely love them. I think I might have prayed for forgiveness and got them anyway!

Thanks.... Now I think I need another pair of boots. Actually, I know I do. I’m still hung up on high heel hiking boots. 


I just don’t understand why some people have such a strong need to make sure everyone knows they’re trans when they would probably pass if they kept their mouth shut about it. I just want to blend in and be treated the same as other women, not special. But that’s me.

Blending thats the key word in the whole thing IMO.

I think the younger crowd just wants to stand out or prove a point or something. I think they put too much emphasis on identity.

I was talking to a young trans girl at a PRIDE event and she commented on my attire being too plain and I told her I didn't know being trans was a competition and that I wasn't trying to impress anyone..

Whelp, the youngest trans-girl I know personally is 27 and she's not like that at all. She's like me; perfectly content to live her life as a woman. Well, and maybe a little, "And find some flattering clothes that fit." Cis-women deal with that too though.

 

Which brings us back to the boots. Why can't I find those in a 13? Why!?!?

 

Hugs!

I think non passing trans are great and probably normalize trans and even non passing cis people.

Teri Anne

I think just being you passing or non passing is fine.

As long as you are happy and living your life the way you want.

I just got my new water-proof winter slip-ons! Glee! Now I'm much less likely to break my neck while shoveling snow.

 

Hugs!

      The most interesting non-famous person I have met is honestly my paternal grandmother. She grew up in Columbus, helping take care of her siblings, but also cousins growing up. She took the bus from Dublin to downtown Columbus as a nurse and worked at Grant Hospital for a period of time. When she met my grandfather, they eventually both joined the American Red Cross. They lived a great many places as my grandfather work as a base liaison and she joined as nurse. They were stationed a great many places, from Maine, to Germany, to Panama. Eventually they set some roots down near Fort Lee in Virginia. She would occasionally be requested to go work up in Washington, DC. One of those times, she actually ended up doing a blood donation from Jimmy Carter. One of the other interesting things is because they have lived all around the world, during Christmas time, they decorate the house head to toe, with 9 Christmas Trees and they are up to 4 Christmas villages. Prior to COVID, they would throw parties, and admission was a donation of food to the food pantry.   With living this interesting life though, unfortunately she is now battling dementia, which is winning. I know she has lived a full life full of adventure and rewards. This is just her story.

      self harm is self harm no matter what how it is inflicted. I used to cut and how I was able to stop was seeing a therapist and learning new coping strategies. It will take time and don't expect overnight results. the reasons you give for bruising yourself are the same reasons I used to cut for, to relive the emotions i didn't have to coping skills to deal with.  please seek help for this. it was a long road for me but it was worth it.

      @Red_Lauren. I love hearing about good memories thank you.   @Petra Jane what a refreshing and inspiring story. I am so glad you recovered and prospered from the meeting of another kind person.

      And I'm usually just listening to my own pandora feed, but WNIC has some of the same music so that's where the radio's at. They're more mainstream, but they gotta sell ads.   Hugs!

      Ok I used to listen to CKLW and Byron Macgregor. And my favorite FM station was WABX. They used to play LedZeppelin II full side.

      Good Sunday morning y’all    @KymmieL I had a Ranger in the nineties 2x4 long bed stick.  I enjoyed driving that.  But I lived where traffic jams were commonplace.  I also had a bad left knee.  My doc said no more clutch.  It was replaced by a Ford E150 conversion van.  Like driving your living room down the highway. Came in great for going to Florida to get our son in college.  Then came my first Jeep.  It was a Liberty.    we lived on a steep hill at the time.  One winter we had a pretty bad snow.  Now most of my neighbors had a 4x4 something Broncos, Toyota’s didn’t matter everyone  knew if you wanted to get up the hill in the snow you had to have one.  My son called me, he was stuck on the main road and the snow plow was coming. Could I try to pull him out.  I got in my Jeep,backed out on the hill and drove off.  Everyone of my neighbors just stared.  I got to him hooked up and started pulling. After we got home he tells me he forgot to take off his parking brake.  So nothing stopped that Jeep. And this one has the same transfer case and even better anti spin differentials. Not the Dodge setup they use in all the other Jeep badged Rams.  So while I like Fords, (my beater is an Explorer Eddie Bauer)! Nothing beats a Jeep unless it’s highly modified.   This one is named Tweetie.  I’m guessing that’s strike three, eh girlfriend? 🥰   hugs   Willow

      Unfortunately, I am now unable to remember very clearly those famous people I have met, I know I met some of the Grumblweeds (a UK band in the 80’s), local personalities but the person who made the most lasting impression on me was the team leader of the Stoke team when I was hospitalised following a couple of strokes. she helped me come to terms with the way my life changed, having survived two strokes, her words, survived the weekend when the nurses didn’t think I was going to make it, and giving me the support I needed to not just survive but improve my life and my health afterwards. It was a delight to be able to return a few years later, meet her, and thank her for her support, and to be honest, show how much improved I was from the day I was discharged.

      Love thrift stores and you never know what you will find. I collect military jackets and BDUs and I found a slant pocket insect repellent combat shirt. The pattern is more a woodland camo style. Need to do a bit of research into what branch wore the style of shirt.

      Not really famous, but locally famous. I know a few local djs at a some what personal level. From when I worked in radio.    I also got to meet one of our local news anchors when I was a bouncer, and it didn't click who she was till I asked for a id. She was super nice, and we chatted for a few minutes. As I was getting her a voucher for a free ride home. A few days later. I was walking in to the gym as she was leaving, and she looked at me like she has seen me before.

      WLLZ was 98.7 last I heard it was jazz in the early 90s. RIF has gone modern junk. I didn't know WNIC was still around. When I was feeling mellow, I would turn on pillow talk. for the slow romantic songs that I never got to dance to. I have WCSX bookmarked to listen to sometimes. They are a lot better than the canned crap we have here.  Then again that is why I have satellite radio in my Ranger and my wagon.   Kymmie

      Willow, I have a few friends with heeps so it is all good. I am just mostly a Ford girl. Well Ford and Buick girl. We have a 2020 Ford Ranger Lariat FX4. We got it simply because it has all the goodies that I wanted to put on our 2000 explorer Limited. Rear locker, trail control,270hp 290tq turbo 2.3l. plus it was new and reliable.  I had a decal on the window of our first Explorer trail truck, "screw your jeep thing." My friends with Jeeps thought it was great.   OK, You get over to Laramie and I'll buy the coffee.   Kymmie

      For me, it was a dream.  A dream where I had a woman's face, but when I checked down south, I still had male parts.  In the dream, I shrugged it off as no bg deal, and went out to show the world m new face.  The dream sparked an internal revolution, where I realized I had spend two-thirds of my life expectancy playing at being male (even while vocally protesting that I just didn't get it!).  I knew I would live the rest of m life in regret if I didn't make an effort to be the woman in y dreams, who went out proud into the world despite not being completely female.   It has made all the difference.  I spent some time rejecting my masculinity wholesale, until I decided I was non-binary.  A strong feminine leaning, to be sure, but I am not wholly male or female.  If I could wave a magic wand, I would love to be a cis-girl, but there is no magic wand, and that dream made me feel like it would work for me to straddle  both worlds.  So far, it has.

      If you want to go to church, go. If it makes you feel at home, if it makes you feel socially healthy, or in touch with spirituality, go. You can work on untangling from whatever toxic parts of it are affecting you. You might never agree with everyone in the "club" of a given religion, or with the overall teachings, even. If you feel the religion you grew up in is harming you, search for lgbt friendly worship services in your area.   All I know about LDS I know from a friend who converted to it, and reading about it online.   I can only speak to my experience of the Catholic church, which is this: canon from Rome is way different from Midwestern home congregations' practices. You'll find a lot of nasty, snide iterations of canon/dogma online. It's easy to find people not just repeating the rules, but writing them in a condescending way. But it baffles me to see that, because where I grew up going to church, in a suburb of a large Midwestern city, we had an openly gay couple as music directors. If an apparently trans person went to that church, nobody would have said anything--except that my mother would have criticized their clothing, because she criticizes people a lot, for everything. I don't go on this ramble to say you should go to a Catholic church. I only mean you might find friends in any denomination.
