The days may seem to drag but its just because you're immobile.  Your body is doing its best to heal so you can get back to living life to its fullest.  Rest well.

 

Hugs, Jani

Thank you, Mike. It helps to get post my complaints and get some i encouragement. Hard now, but I’m sure I’ll feel happy in the long term. Thanks.

I felt pretty happy when I could sit comfortably again. 😉 You miss the little things.

 

For me that was about four weeks if I'm remembering correctly. In the meantime, try to enjoy your princess status. 😜

 

Feel better soon sweetie!

 

 

Hugs!

Thank you, Jani! And Kay-san, too. At times like this, these little comments mean so much! I can’t begin to say how much! Progress is slow but steady. Thank you!

 Thanks! I felt more like a princess before this started! So looking forward to a shower, but not ready for that yet apparently. Soon!

That is SO true. I never wanted a shower more in my LIFE than after a week of bedrest. I felt SO gross.

 

The first thing I did when I got back to the hotel after the bandages came off, the catheter was out and the packing came out was shower. It felt so very, very good.

 

Still, nurses bring you things. It's nice to be waited on sometimes.

 

Hugs!

I remember being afraid of taking a shower so not to hurt the new bits, but the desire over rode the fear.  It felt so good.  Progress may seem slow but your body is working overtime!  Keep smiling.

 

Hugs, Jani

Update and thanks to everyone who sent encouragement and support. I’m doing much, much better. Will probably be another week in the hospital, but most of the tubes coming out of my body have been removed. I still have the catheter in and am still worried about eating. I’m now on a real simple (mostly liquid) diet and still worried about my colon. I guess that’s the biggest difference with the surgery: you have a section of colon removed and then stitched up again, so that’s basically another major surgery on top of the vaginoplasty.

 

Earlier this week, I had many tears and a few moments of panic, but the worst, I feel, is over. Thank you again. The encouragement meant so much!

I'm glad you're feeling better and shedding tubes. Tubes are no fun. May you continue to heal swiftly and well!

Thanks, girls! I just got home from the hospital today. More like a smashed up cactus than roses, but we’re getting there! This week’s goal is to become friends with my catheter—my first boyfriend! Well, not really my first, but he’ll be in me all week, and I’m fighting the urge of just yanking him out. I go back to the hospital in a week to have him removed from my life permanently. I’ll have to reread that peeing thread then. Thanks again, everyone! It was nice having a place to moan when the going was tough! Kisses!

Getting rid of Mr. Catheter was glorious. Well, not the removal part, that sucked, but afterwards (and not having to navigate the world with a catheter bag) was lovely. May the days pass swiftly until you can kick him out of your life!

 

Hugs!

      Looking great Liz! The high neckline works for you and it's always great to see you smile in your pics

      @AmberM I agree that I do go through cycles but with HRT and my GI therapist - the cycles aren't as extreme nor last as long and I am thankful for that AND because I am getting at the root cause of my depression and anxiety, those pains are less severe.   Getting the right therapist is a godsend.

      Today, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signed House Bill 1503 into law — legislation that allows student groups at colleges, universities, and high schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students.   https://www.hrc.org/press-releases/north-dakota-gov-doug-burgum-signs-anti-lgbtq-house-bill-1503-into-laww

      I have found therapy to be useful over the years, however, there was always this one thing that kept coming back that I didn't know how to deal with. After finally getting after my gender identity, I have noticed a lift in my mood, and improvement in several symptoms. What is hard though, is this time of year, normally my mood naturally increases. So we have to wait until October time frame to see if it dips down super low again. It isn't that I don't get dips week to week, because I still get some dips, just they haven't been as low as they were in the past. I think therapy has been pivotal to my success and will remain to be key to my continued success.

      Nothing special today.  Black high-neck tank and jeans. The neckline is more conservative then I usually wear but I really like the look and feel.    Also added finishing powder to my makeup routine. Not that I need it for work but practice makes perfect.

      Ok, thanks so much I'll be sure to check it out!

      Jandi, This is my life in a nut shell. I'm several years behind you, but this is exactly how I have come to see myself. @Jani is correct in pointing out that most of us are not girls, but women, and in my case an older woman. My Suzie is still coming around slowly to the fact that I'm transgender and we can openly talk about how this affects our relationship, and our different feelings. This June 26th, we will be married for 45 years, now she understands that my many girl friends, were just that GIRL friends. Nothing More. I'm not looking to be with anyone but my Suzie, and have to always remind her of that. It's human nature to want to be desired, in my opinion. Relationships die or fail when the people in them stop pursuing each other. It's the hunt, not the kill. It's about the fishing not just the landing of a trophy mount. My joy in gardening is the gardening, not just the harvest or cut flowers.   Good morning everyone, the coffee was HOT, black, strong, and never bitter.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      Retirement opened the door for me. I'd told myself I needed to free myself but the fear of more abandonment and rejection and as has been said in the most recent postings - I looked to please and comfort others and deny myself. It's getting easier but the road to recovery is long and grueling.

      I've seen probably 5 therapist over the years and they treated me for depression and anxiety, anorexia and panic attacks but my symptoms always came back. My current Therapist was the first Gender Identity Specialist I've seen and the effects have been so refreshing and helpful. I notice the waiting lists for GI specialists and the lack of coverage and lack of available therapists, specially when you get out of major cities. Zoom helps but in person meeting so much more beneficial.   How about you? Have you found a therapist that has helped you become YOU?

      I had always been a diplomat, trying to get the people around me to get along - damage control.  And I was willing to compromise myself to preserve the peace.  I think I had gotten to a place where I was no longer living, but only reacting. I wonder if I would have ever felt free to look at my own issues if I had stayed in that relationship.  It was only when it collapsed that I felt free to explore my own neglected identity.  I had been living for other people for years.   This said, I do think we have to consider those around us.  But we can't let them, or our fear of offending them control us.

      YOU would have to decide that during sessions with your Gender Therapist.  For some individual, it could be, for another Enby person it may just be a normal feeling of growing up that comes on and disappears as a feeling in a few months or less.  ALL teenagers Cis/Trans/Enby go through periods where their bodies do not look right and give them some form of distress, but if it is actual GD is up to each one and their therapy team to explore, and as I said it is an individual realization.  Also it will not be a single body part likely to do it.  I am in my 70's and my two Cis teenagers are "deathly stressed" about whether their bodies look right, along with their AMAB sister and her stress is not related to her gender.
