Thank you. Since I am very new here I was trying to figure out how to go about all of this.
      Well I am 56 years old MTF I live in Michigan. I am a pilot so not the best job to transition in. I have known my whole life that I was different so like most I did what I had to to survive. I found that if I left the mask on with the gender I was born in versus the gender that I really a.m. is the only way to get by. It has taken me a long time to start to push in the direction of being who I truly am it is hard to Take the mask off that you have worn for so long. So here I am trying to start talking with people like myself gaining some knowledge slowly moving forward.

Transitioning. It's harder for some of us than others. My armor fell off pretty quickly, but I didn't have anything to lose. Well, my spouse and I REALLY should have had a plan B before I came out, but everything's mostly settled down now. There are issues, but we're working on them.

 

I do feel like I would have really benefitted from an understanding therapist and maybe not internalizing all the homophobia from the 80's. Not much I can do about that now though. I've found transition to be pretty painless and people here have been accepting, but I'm almost in Detroit and sandwiched between Ferndale and Ann Arbor which are both big LGBTQ+ communities.

 

On the other hand, the couple of times I've been up around Claire to visit my father-in-law... who doesn't know I've transitioned. I mean I present female, use my girl-voice, carry my purse, I have freaking breasts, etc... we just didn't tell him... anyway, the couple of times I've been up there nobody said anything and treated me like a proper woman so who knows?

 

Again, lovely to meet you and welcome to TransPulse!

 

Hugs!

Thank you. It is very nice to meet you too. I live in a very small town so it will be an interesting journey. A Couple people know my situation. I am trying to slowly transition as to keep my job to pay for the few debts that I have left and trying to set up a business that I could transition into. I am going to get back with the therapist that I had a couple of years ago and was approved for HRT I was on that for a short time and everything in my life took a crap so I had to step back and reevaluate make some changes and now I am on Track to get back on HRT I have a new Endocrinologist that I have talked to about getting back on HRT but Covid hit and I haven’t pushed yet but I am going to I need to do it soon I have to be moving forward. Backwards stinks

Hello @Tasha Marie it’s a pleasure to meet you.  You’ve come to a very good place to share learn and find others like yourself. I started my transition at this same age. We have that in common plus I’m sure a whole lot of other similar life stories. It’s nice to have you on board here and hope that you will continue to share your journey as it unfolds. It’s a very exciting time in your life and you will be creating some very fond memories that you’ll look back upon for the rest of your life especially the milestones. I wish you the best on your continuing journey and hope to see you around.

 

Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

It is exciting and very scary too. I just wish I would have been true to myself so many years ago. I knew who I was. Just scared to live. I had no support system then. I had many gay friends but that’s the point they were gay and I’m trans. I do hate these titles so much. I am a women inside so even though we were very close and they didn’t get me, I was an outsider in the gay community funny how that works isn’t it at least my experience we are all in little groups segregated why can’t we all just be who we are. So. I’m slowly taking the mask down letting my true self hopefully shine through this is going to be a very long long process but it is a process that needs to happen. I thank all of you who listen.

      I saw a heartwarming/heart wrenching love story called Soldier’s Girl (2003) about six months ago and it was worth the cry. I was not disappointed. IMDB gives it 7.9 and it was well deserved.   Susan R🌷

      I had a cowl neck like that many years ago, but pink. I had a love hate relationship with it. It gave me the illusion I had breast, but was less revealing. What I didn't like, and why I avoided any thing with low necks. Was because I didn't have any breast. Even though I was fluffy, a push up bra didn't do munch. Now that I have proper breast tissue, and my muscles have changed to fat. A push up bra is my friend.    Also a friend got back to me, and said it looked cute, and agrees with you guys. I can pull it off for daytime.  She just is worried about the fit. I told her I would snap a picture of me wearing it later, and send her the picture.

      I'll never have that hourglass figure.  But it doesn't really seem to be a big issue for women in my (older) age range.  Perhaps age has its perks after all.

      I like Carol a lot.

      I'm under 50 but still wanted to comment if that is ok. You said you can't bring yourself to talk to your wife about it, what about your daughter? Can you confide in her, and even check in with her to see how the wife would take it? Sometimes getting confirmation from another person that it may work out OK could give you that boost of confidence to approach her about it.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I don't have cleavage, but I have worn shirts for work that showed off quite a bit of chest, no one has said anything so far. As for age appropriate, I'm 37 and pretty much dress like a teenager (I get free clothes from a coworker's daughter when she gets tired of them). I have worn very small tops that show off a lot of chest and tummy, and things like fishnet stockings (not at work but out and about). I really don't think that top you showed is alarming in any way.

      Sounds interesting.

      I liked very much a Chilean film called "Una mujer fantástica" (A fantastic woman, 2017). It's worth watching. Perhaps you can get it dubbed or subtitled in English.   Many Almodóvar movies portray an LGBTQ story or have it as a background. They range from the kitsch / camp to the profound, and they also vary in quality or inspiration, so people may love some and dislike others. If forced to recommend only one, I'd go for "La ley del deseo" (Law of desire, 1987).   Also, I recently watched a documentary called "Bambi" (2013) about Marie-Pierre Pruvot, nicknamed Bambi: a French trans woman born in Argelia who performed as a showgirl in the 50s and 60s and then became a teacher. She tells her story and I liked it very much.

      Even before I began my journey, I was always fascinated by hourglass figure. I was, of course, making up some silly reasons why I would need a waist-trainer ("it helps with weight loss") or corset. With the beginning of transition, it only made sense and became just a natural hope to achieve it. Currently, I can get a fairly good resemblance with steel-boned corset laced up all the way. And I absolutely love the feeling. One additional benefit, it helps with the posture so it is another reason to use it at least around house if you spend plenty of time sitting.   Cannot comment much on the padding, as I was starting with very non-masculine figure waist-down, and new fat redistribution only enhanced those areas to a point where shaping clothes are new reality in my future 🙂

      Only one i have seen is The Crying Game

      Facial Team uses a private contractor, a trans woman, who is quite skilled at photo shop.   She tries to only show you what is realistically possible.   They are only interested in removing male puberty damage as much as possible and some aging in my case.  I hope it is OK to mention FT here, they are a wonderful organization.      ---WILLOW---

      Some films I especially liked The Dress You Have On (YouTube omelleto channel) Normal (2003 with Tom Wilkerson and Jessica lange) The Crying Game Transamerica Zerophilia The Danish girl Call me by your name Hedwig and the angry inch The normal heart My life in pink   Any others you recommend?

      Harassment seems to be the order of the day.   https://apple.news/AeKPcysdyQeS6bhc95V73lA

      Holly that top certainly does push the PG label.  A bit close to X.     I once dressed a bit over the top.  After all i had somehow noticed the women with short skirts  and low tops more than the "plain" ones.  It was also fun at first to excite that glance from men.  Time has lengthened my skirts and yet somehow i feel just as feminine even in dirty jeans and top working the farm.    We all have our styles which makes the world go round.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sounds like it may be loosely based around DBT but maybe not as in  depth.
