Looking My Age -- Old but Happy


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

I decided to change my Avatar photo finally, the old one was from my CD days about 20 years ago.  I hope I am not scaring anyone with the new mug shot.  This one is from September of this year.  Older, no wiser, but OK with how I look today, nearing 8 years post op in January, and happy to be seen as just an older, but not horrible looking woman as I should be seen. If I can do it, all you younger folks can pull it off too.

Yes I noticed that on another topic, wondered what I've done to the forum at first! BUT I haven't been tweaking, HONEST!

Way to go @VickySGV

      I called my insurance company today and asked about coverage. If I go to an "in network" place they cover pretty well. It sounds like they go by the Harry Benjamin standards. They told me to check out WPATH and GLAAD. With insurance paying, I should be able to get it all done. YAY !!!!! I have Humana choice PPO  insur. I'm really excited now.  It's odd that PP of Illinois, 30 miles from me isn't in their network, but PP of Indiana is. It's in Hammond, Indiana. Probably a 2 hr. drive for me. I'll have to check, there may be someone closer. On the plus side, going on HRT that is monitored by a doctor instead of what I'm currently doing will be safer. I can't imagine what hell people went through before forums and insurance coverage. Thanks for letting me in here. It feels good to have people to talk to about this.

      Oooh that hard hat is gorgeous I wonder if I could get a mine light attachment on it.

      While I do accessorize in pinks, don't forget the power of purple. Lavenders are good too. Don't limit yourself until you've tried all your options. Ooh, do they make hardhats in floral patterns?     Oh hey! Look at that!   Hugs!

      Haha. My boss did give me the option of wearing a plastic bag over my head. I’d really like to get a pink hardhat. That’s what I should do I should show up with a pink hard hat lol.

      I bet that I would be one of the "mysteries" in my class. A football player and weight lifter? Now a girly girl!
    • Emily michelle
      Wow congrats! You look great.

      BTW, I love to hear stories like these, sure I'm jealous but people like your wife make the world a better place for current and future generations.  For me it's too late, my wife is how she is and won't change, I have to wait another few years before I can do anything.

      Any hat? The fool! He may have sown the seeds of his own madness.   There's no reason you can't be a bridesmaid though. I mean find an unmarried friend that is getting married and boom! Probably too late for prom. I didn't go to mine either. Probably for the best, from all reports it was kind of 'meh.' On the other hand, if I'd been AFAB, I'd have torn the place UP.   Well, probably not. Lesbians still weren't cool in 1988. Statistically, there should have been 20 LGBT people in my graduating class. Including myself, I can identify three of them (and we were all, in hindsight, obvious choices). The other 17 remain a mystery.   Anyway, the point being that you're still young. You have lots of experiences ahead of you. Go out and enjoy them!   Hugs!

      Hi Zooey, I'm SO happy for you and SO jealous at the same time.  I'm 52 and came out to my wife a few months ago and it was NOTHING like your experience.  The first thing she said to me when I told her I was a woman was "are you gay?".  To that I said "no, I'm lesbian".  It didn't make a difference, she wants to have nothing to do with it, refuses to go to couple therapy, refuses to acknowledge it, threatens to leave when/if I start transitioning, accuses me of destroying the family when/if I come out, blames me for deceiving her by not telling her before we got married 23 years ago, and on and on and on.  Notice she said "when/if" because to me it's not an IF it's a WHEN and WHEN it happens I'm pretty sure the kids will be with me and she'll be the one left behind.  Anyway, this is about you, not about me.  Do make the best out of what you have and take extremely good care of your wife, she so totally deserve it and you totally deserve her.   Love

      Hi everyone. Hope everyone had a happy Monday. Nothing exciting happening here. Except I have a laser appointment tomorrow. My hr department sent me the fmla paperwork for my recovery time. I was going to do it but my employer thought I should. Fill it out. My boss told me today if I want to come in his office again I have to wear a hat. He has serious issues about my hair. He will really be shocked when he has a meeting with me and hr. For some reason the idea of getting married is on my mind and it’s kind of sad because I never got to be a bride. Or go to prom or be a bridesmaid. I just feel kind of depressed about the events I missed

      I've made it a point to have different products on hand to better meet whatever is needed at the time.  For example, besides the longer lasting gels and base coats, I also keep around Sally Hansen Big Peel Off Base Coat for those times I want things more easily removeable.  And for a top coat, I have Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat when I want my nails to be nice and noticeable, and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat when I want to tone down how noticeable my nail polish is (I particularly like using the matte over CND Ice Bar for a subtle sparkly effect that I feel comfortable wearing anywhere).  All of the above is relatively inexpensive and fun to experiment with.     💅 onward!  Have fun!   Astrid
