Thank you for your prayers Mindy. The surgery gave me everything I hoped for, from no more internal pain to an improved  exterior. All I need now is a little more time to finish healing. I am also glad Aurora is doing so well.

 

Hugs,

Mike

Today on May 21st is my 1 month post-op.  I am feeling so good physically and emotionally.  Now at my 1 month post-op, I am feeling really -excited- and just need to be penterated.  I am not sure if I can wait till my 3 month mark to start to explore my body and find someone to sastify me.  but I am trying to keep it in control

Goddess, I know I was. Just remember that it can take a WHILE to completely heal and the nerve endings might not all be firing yet. Again, the word of the day is patience.

 

Hugs!

I just got my new shorts and sports bra and they are from Fabletics which I love.  But I love the way how the shorts fit on me with how I have my vigina.  Looking at myself in my shorts and sports bra, I have cleavage.  I am so happy that I have continued and still continue to see my therapist cause I am feeling really good about myself with how I got my vaginoplasty surgery.  Before surgery, my dysphoria was bad and even scared everyone and my therapist.  Now after my surgery, my dysphoria is very minimal.  For myself, I feel that I really dont need any additional surgeries as I am happy with myself.  If I would need additional surgery it would just be on my chin and jawline, but surgery is now low on my priority list.  I am happy with my natural boobs and my voice and for the most part my face.  I mainly now have Body Dysmorphia with my height, weight, hair length.  My surgery has really helped me out alot and made me feel so much better

I am 1 month post-op and feeling good.  As Dr. DeLeon has said that I am a over achiever with how I clean myself after every dilation and do a throual cleaning with douching once a day.  Dr. DeLeon has said that doching recommendation is once a week but I do it once a day.  I am walking alot and feeling good.  

 

Even when I was pretending to be a guy, I have never had sex.  I could be a nun with never had sex, or been kissed or been in a relationship or anything.  I have been single all 40 years of my life.  I am a 100% pure nun.  I am still single.  Part of my being single is due to my working hours of working 3rd shift and sleeping during the day so I am not really able to go out and look for a partner.  3rd shift working has hurt my social ability to go out and find a partner and to put myself out there.  At 40 years old and being the real life 40 year old virgin, it's time to say NO to 3rd shift working

@AuroraGirl I know! I work nights too. But I only work 3 nights a week. It is hard to function most days; but over the past 14 years of nights I’ve learned how to manage. I am getting close to switching to days once I find a job that suits me. I love working in ICU but my body can’t anymore!

Working 3rd shift in IT and doing it for 25 years, really takes it out of you and makes you very verdictive about 3rd shift and the company.  They really need to do a 3rd shift rotation.  Otherwise they will continue to lose people right and left when companies put people on 3rd shift for extended time.

IT!? You can do that anywhere and work 9-5, why stay with that company? I personally don't know anyone in IT that works those hours.

Oh wow! Agree with @rainflower. Might be time to find a new company!

Funny story that happened to me on Tuesday afternoon.   I was doing my afternoon dilation and I was relaxed on the bed when I closed my eyes thinking I will just close them for a bit till I realized that I had taken an hour nap.  So my dilator was left inside me for an hour instead of the 20min like I was told.  

 

From what some of my friends who have had theirs, this is a good sign that healing has gone this good and that I am relaxed cause my friends have had the same thing happened but longer.  As long as I am not hurt or not having any pain I was told, that is fine.  Just don't make a habit of falling asleep with a dilator inside of me.

 

Looks like I need to start setting an alarm for when time is up.

It shows you are finally living in the body you were supposed to have if you are now that relaxed.

Ha! I wish I could do that and sleep! 
 

Now there are so many times an hour will go by before I realize it!  Especially with a good show on. 🥰

Glad you’re progressing well!

Today Monday June 21 is my 2 month post-op.  I am feeling good and just love my vigina.  I am still at the same depth as I first started back in April.  I am healing nicely and swelling is going down more.  I have been sticking with the blue dilator instead of the purple one as the blue one feels alot more comfortable in me.  The purple one just feels too pointy and uncomfortable.  1 more month and then I can take baths and ride bikes and experience sex and explore my body.

 

I do not regret my decision at all.  I am happy with my new part.

Congrats @Aurora. Glad things continue to be in a great path. Keep safe and healthy!

I feel for both of you. I worked 7 years 7pm-7am in the PICU and it wore me down and I ended up with severe depression.  I wasn't seeing daylight most days :(

Shift work is for the birds.

I'm happy for both of you on your post op recoveries and happiness!  @Aurora I didn't realize how similar our hair is! Mine was that bright at your age but has lightened up a bit since then.  My goal is this woman's hair!  She's got some great pointers for our hair texture BTW.

20 days and counting till my 3 month post-op.  I am doing amazing.  I have been on the blue dilator since mid May as the purple dilator is too pointy and uncomfortable.  So been on the blue one which is so comfortable that I have even fell asleep with it inside of me.  Dr. DeLeon is alright with it as I am comfortable with no pain, so she said just stay with the blue don't touch the purple if it's uncomfortable.  I am looking forward to being able to take a bubble bath and go swimming after my 3 month.  I am looking forward to trying out some of my toys with my area and exploring my body.  I have my toys lined up and ready.  I cannot wait to I am able to ride a bike.  My new kitty is really looking good and it's looking very cis like.  My scares are starting to fade.  Swelling is going down more.  I am still able to dilate the same depth as first started where I am a little past the 5 dot.  Dr. DeLeon did an amazing job.  I love my new feeling with how I am in the right body.  I am feeling more conference with my mind and body.  So happy and comfortable

      Sounds like a wise man. I'm sorry for you and your family.   It's never easy, even when you are expecting it.
    • Delcina B
      Solly, I'm glad you found the forum. I've found it to be a wonderful place full of caring people who share their experience, give advice & support, & accept me just as I am. I think you will find it so as well. This gender journey isn't a race, so you can take all the time you need, relax & breathe. Where we fit on the gender spectrum is where we find we feel comfortable, some are fluid & don't fix themselves with a specific label. It's all up to you.   Welcome! Delcina

      @Willow those are legitimate gripes and I concur. Wish people would respect others differences and not try to find humor where it's not.

      Good morning everyone.  Rain predicted for here in the top of Virginia today and tomorrow.   I have a question for ya’ll.  I get offended by some things which I feel are taking a shot at us.  For example, a joke on Facebook showed a fat dog and the caption was “I identify as trans slim”.  Or I don’t like female impersonators.  They are nothing like us yet they were allowed to advertise their show on on a transgender only secret website.  Am I overly sensitive?  Is it wrong to feel these sorts of things are offensive to me?  Let me know what you think.   @Elizabeth Star I was a Jack! Now Jill of all trades.  Made furniture, repaired the house and car, replaced a roof, you name it ive probably done it.  But I’m getting older and muscle mass is lessened.  My last project was definitely not up to my standard so I’m done.  Giving my stationery power tools to my son.  Gave away or sold a lot of stuff during our move out.  And will likely have more to deal with after we move in to our new place.  And my eyesight, very frustrating and upsetting when I can’t see clearly.  Nothing is ever at the correct focal distance.     let me know if I’m being overly sensitive with things I think are slaps at us.   Willow

      @Elizabeth Star now that you have experience how about doing my and Cyndee's doors ?

      I would be so mad if I broke a nail working on this stuff. I could hire someone to do the work but since I know what's involved I have trouble trusting other people's quality.

      Thank you all of course. I will get over it.  It's just that it's still a pain when it happens. That sounds kinda heartless but well....   to be brutally  honest.... that wasn't my dad anymore the last few years. It's his body of course.  But not him.. It was that, with every visit, he was a little bit more gone... So we already kinda said goodbye to him during the last 5 years or so. He could't recognize anyone anymore and couldn't do anything anymore..  For him it's sort of a good thing i guess....  He wouldn't want to be kept alive like this... Most things are already arranged by now... Cards have been picked and texts have been chosen. Dad is brought home in a coffin and ... what is the English term?...  laid out? (that sounds weird google translate) Just he's now presentable for anyone who wants to say goodbye. But it will be a week before he will get cremated. Mom still has her ankle operation going on tomorrow. So i have to get up early to bring her to the hospital.   Today i remembered something my dad thought me while i was a kid... Forgotten it for the longest time but .... He once told me:   "i don't care what you do with your life, be a president or a garbage collector. Just be happy with what you do" Not sure how old i was... somewhere between 10~12 years or something? I should keep that teaching in my life...  I know he mend it for my work career but i should apply it to my whole life...   Anyways,  for now i'm going to chill a bit. Woke up at 04am and with everything that happend i got a bit tired.

      Just a link.  But being informed is best and real sources .  Its not an easy read ,for most . I was a  science major .   nejm.org   The New England Journal of Medicine: Research & Review Articles on Disease & Clinical Practice (nejm.org)

      Liz you're a jill of all trades it seems! I'm done with that kinda stuff.  I know how to fix most things, but I started pawning tht out to contractors about 7 years ago.  I used my back issues as the excuse but in reality, I just don't want to do all the "fix it up" stuff anymore. (especially after a manicure haha).  I think people have also started changing their expectations of me as well.  People use to come to me for help with all the "manly trades" but no one in the last year has except to borrow a tool or something.  My neighbor didn't even ask for my help building his deck (I've built 20 by now) even though I offered to help back before my transition.  We used to help each other with things like that. It's not like he isn't comfortable with my transition, he and his wife have been amazingly supportive and his Oklahoma courtesies of "Yes Ma'am" never fail to tickle me but he is definitely not going to ask a woman for help with carpentry. haha I find myself slipping into my feminine stereotypes more and more and I like it .

      More of the news had a DR Zoom appointment Friday,  something in the New England Journal of Medicine  and from the research from Israel.  While no vaccine is 100 percent effective , its the non vaccinated who are at risk .   More of sources where to look .  While less of a personal touch I like the DR Zoom as no need to drive or take the T or pay to park near Fenway .

      On yesterday's episode of: A woman's Work is Never Done.   On my way how from work mt partner called to let me know her mother bought us a new back door. The original door was very old, beat up and had almost zero insulation value. We knew it had to be replaced, I just didn't want to do it "right now". I got home just in time to take five-er before there was knock on the door. In walks my MIL, FIL and BIL. Before I knew it, I was tearing out the old door. The door faces West and we're on a hill so I spent the next 5 hours roasting in the afternoon sun. Thankfully I didn't have all the trim that's needed so I was able to call it quits after the door was and frame were mounted. Plan is to get the final trim work done this morning and then back to cutting up the trees I dropped last weekend.   For you amusement I included a picture, my partner took, of me while I was working and of the newly installed door.

      @Niamh looking cute as always! @Emily MicheleAdorable!  I'm glad to hear you're healing well. You must be on top of the world!
    • Bri2020
      Congrats on starting the new chapter with your wife and daughter! I agree with your sentiments. Also, the longer you hide something from significant people in your life, the percentage chance of keeping it all together go down. I understood that when I finally accepted who I was, I couldn't keep that from my wife for long. Don't be surprised if however, things get more challenging for you two.  Talk to each other, opening up about the loss and well as the joy of living your true self.  She might be really supportive right now but then go through the stages of grief like denial, anger, bargaining etc.  GET a couples counselor to help you all navigate the change now instead of waiting for some crisis to develop. Good luck!

      @LaurenA I agree with @Jackie C. you are doing amazing considering what you've had to deal with and I'm proud of you. Just wanted to let you know that.
