Hello, 

My name is April (Yvonne or maybe Yvette I want as a middle name someday) I'm 32 years old amab and just started HRT 3 weeks ago. I was born and raised in Idaho (ughhh) I just learned about this forum and thought I would try to connect with people and make friends. I am mostly active on YouTube but there isnt the same sense of community there.

 

I finally have a job with insurance and the city passed trans friendly ordinances this year so I felt it was finally safe enough to start transitioning. I'm only out to one friend in town and some friends who moved out of state or are far away. I was lucky that there is a trans friendly doctor 30 miles from where I live and a therapist from California in the town I live in. So far that part hasn't been too hard but things will start changing soon I am sure. I am excited for the future it is finally looking brighter.

 

Thanks for letting me join!

Welcome dear.  I'm glad you are here to share your journey.  I know my typing has improved immensely since i poked my head nervously into this site and found a safe place.  Sharing fears and accomplishments has made a big difference.  Somehow the rough spots were smoother and the joys were stronger when shared with folks who understand.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

      Oh Liz, I am so happy for you.
    • Red_Lauren.
      This is the best I could get. I did the scoop and lift to make it a bit more, but you get the idea.

      Sounds like a must-have outfit.     And the saga continues....Now I'm home and have a full keyboard. Another short story by Elizabeth Star. When we reached the doctor's office our first stop was the receptionist station. She asked which of us the appointment was for. My wife immediately spoke up that it was for her. The young woman explained that only patients are allowed in the waiting room. My wife then asked her this would how work, my husband (motioning to me) needs to be with me, what is he supposed to do. The lady replied..and love this. She can wait downstairs or out in the hall, you can call her when the doctor says it's OK for her to come in. I just stood there in disbelief. Did this other woman properly gender me in front of my wife? Wife tries again. What's he supposed to do? Again she replies with She can..... This seriously just happened? Baha-ha-ha-ha! This went on for another minute. No matter what my wife said this receptionist was NOT going to call me he/him. I went and waited in the hall...like a good girl.   Out in the hallway I was able to beat the rush and get one of the only two seats. After about 30 minutes I had to pee and there was probably a dozen people standing in the hall. I stood up and took a quick glance out the window while debating if I should risk getting clocked trying to use the ladies room on this floor or find another. We're on the 19th floor so the view is kinda cool. The I noticed a couple of "Cows on parade" statues on one of the roof-tops. Just as I take my phone out to take a picture I hear someone say "no, I think she's still sitting there". I turn around to see who this fabulous person is that called me she and saw a little old woman standing there. After that I had no problems giving up my seat or using the ladies room on that floor.   A few minutes later I got a call from my wife. The Dr. Ok'ed me coming in back and they were sending someone to get me. As I'm hanging out by the door a nurse comes outs and wanders for moment, finds her way to me, looks at me an says, Liz?   Yea, that's me. -what the heck- just happened? My wife has promised to forever dead-name me. No one there except the doctor knows my name and I doubt he remembers it. So she had to of told them to look for Liz. Right? Later after the appointment she asked if I had noticed the name they used when looking for me. So she did tell them.  Of course I noticed. It seems something else has changed.

      They just are bashful. Because I'm bigger any way.  They still look like man boobs with out a top, but for some reason. They look different under a shirt, and apparently in a bra.  
    • VickySGV
      For me, cleavage is a no.  My boobs do the family women's thing and hide under my arm pits on the sides.  You can see boobs but hey do not meet in the middle without bras that leave me gasping for air. (C-cups too.)  I am glad you are happy.

      Hi folks ! my name is Myles. I’ve made a few other posts on the forums before, but I am starting this thread to continuously update my coming out process. I would really appreciate some feedback/advice too if anyone has any. I came out to my partner and therapist officially back in November 2020. Both have been 100% supportive in every way possible. I have also discussed with my doctor and have my prescription for HRT. I finally told one of my closest friends today (3/3). It was terrifying to work up the courage to tell her. But she was so sweet and affirming. She said she already did know, and was glad I was comfortable to tell her. She’s keeping my secret for me until I can come out to our other friends and at our work. I appreciate her a lot, and her response was everything people hope for. But I am not feeling relieved. I thought maybe it would make me feel happier, more relieved, or something. But I just feel kinda spaced out right now. This has many in an entire tizzy of self doubt. I don’t know really how to process this. I am planning to come out to my mom and sister tomorrow night. I’m not sure that they are going to take it well though. I just don’t really know where to go from here. I was hoping the “high” of coming out to my friend tonight would empower me to face my family tomorrow, but so far it hasn’t. I also have an important project due tomorrow morning, so maybe that’s clouding my feelings. Idk. Anyways, hopefully future posts from me on this thread are more positive. But for now I’d really appreciate some sort of feedback. Did anyone else feel like this? How do you battle the self doubt ? 
    • Red_Lauren.
      Believe me I was surprised. I can't wait to show the picture to my friends. As I don't want to show them my breast unless they ask. As for the rules I understand it. Most forums i have ever gone to. Seem to have at least a pg13 rating for the most part. Also I don't think I have any thing with a v neck. As  before the hormones I didn't like my chest region.  So I kept it pretty covered, or v necks never looked good on me. Ill see if I can find some thing with a lower or v neck some where deep in my closet.     Me too. Im only 2.5 months in to hormones, and genetics aren't on my side.

      Pretty.   I was always jealous of my sisters' hair.   We boys always got the buzzy treatment. I was a bit of a hippy myself once I was not so much under my parents.  After some military madness I went to California where I met my wife.  They weren't crazy about her either.  Oh well.  I was kinda the black sheep. My mother once said that "hippies" should be put in a concentration camp. But when she was old she had Alzheimers.  We helped keep her in our home, in fact she died there. But like I have mentioned, both my folks were gone before I came out.  I suspect they wouldn't have been thrilled.  I guess we were spared that one.

      I was fully out and living as a woman a few months before HRT.

      Given that this doctor is at the VA, I am not exactly filled with confidence.

      Welcome Rei! Love the look! So happy your family supports you.   Hugs! Delcina

      I should point out that you CAN display your cleavage in an appropriate bra and shirt combo. I know I have more than one acceptable for the public top that would display cleavage if I had any. You may peacock, just not in your underwear. Underwear and naughty bits must be covered.   I should also say that recommended practice is to post your pics in a gallery with a link in the forum post. This restricts eyeballs to site members and stymies fanciers, fetishists and other creepers. This has been today's public service announcement. Brought to you by the letters T, A and the number 69.   Hugs!
    • Delcina B
      Imagined, looking great! Just starting journey, so I can only imagine how wonderful it feels.   Hugs!  Delcina
