    Tucking!

    I have not seen any issues apart from possible temporary low sperm count but this is something to discuss with your doctor. It would not likely be a specific time anyway as people's bodies vary. Tracy

    My "mark all read" button is only working to where it asks me if I want to mark all read. The it quits.
  6. It was not the shops, but rather the wares that had us concerned for you. Now you know and I will lock this thread for now.

    Gym

    Hi all, I am lucky to go to a very nice gym, however, I am transitioning MtF, I wanted to buy gym clothes and go to the female toilets to change and I did see advice of this online... I did e-mail the manager and he said he would need to get back to me, I would feel ashamed using the disabled toilet and there is no locker in the toilet either... Have you guys experienced this?

    Tucking!

    Hi all, I read somewhere you should only tuck for less than 10 hours a day or you can cause yourself to get ill and go to hospital is this true? or a myth? Thanks Cara xxx

    Hello all!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi all, So very happy to find a transgender forum!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope all of you are having a smashing day so far. I wanted to introduce myself, My name is Cara I knew I was female at the age of 5 and when my Dad found out I got beaten up many time before he decided to leave the family home. I tried to come out in school only to get beaten up with a few bones broken in the process. I then put a fake macho image on but my feelings never went away, I got married in 2010 with no children to a controlling but loving wife and as my feelings grew I threw myself into work to the point when I was realised I need to transition, I was so scared I would lose everything that I attempted suicide (Please speak to someone if you feel this way - never keep to yourself). Now I am in the process of getting private help and on a 3 year waiting list for the NHS. I came out to my employer, family, friends and wife, which was hard but worth it as I feel a giant burden lifted off my shoulders and whenever I am buying, wearing womens clothes and putting make up I am so much more comfortable in my skin! I look forward to talking to more of you, this Friday is the first day I am going to fully transition in public, wish me luck! Take care all and stay safe Cara
  10. Hiya Vicky & MaryEllen, I was hoping you would not say that! Sorry to discuss those type of shops did not know but thank you both so much for responding! I will take this as a painful lesson, I am in the queue for a private discussion with a doctor, so hopefully this will help alot! Cara

    Hi Reyindium and Ellora, Thank you for your responses! I think a sit down is certainly appropriate too, I will be sitting her with today on what happens going forward. Thank you for your support I did not expect any to reply. Take care Cara

    Welcome to Trans Pulse, Nichole, and thank you for sharing your story. It is in some ways like my own. I came out to my wife at the age of 55. She wasn't sure at first if she could stick it out, either, and had many doubts. But we are still together 10 years later, and doing well, so I hope that gives you some cheer for your own future as a couple. Why we are who we are, and what we are, is an interesting thought exercise, but it doesn't change anything in the end. n my case, I think it may have something to do with my mother's likely use of the drug DES during pregnancy in the 1950's. But there is no proof, and, like I said, it doesn't much matter. So my suggestion is to let that issue go, because it won't change anything. There are a lot of good questions among the forum threads, and an equal number of good answers, and some bad answers, too. Please look around and don't be shy about asking any questions for yourself. We have a lot of experience among the members here, and one thing we like to do is share it. HUGS Carolyn Marie

    huh..Good to know TY.. PLEASE be careful you up again some freaky weather.
  18. Congrats on the binder purchase. I remember being euphoric when I bought my first one. Who will you be cosplaying as? Conventions are great because the crowd tends to be so chill and inclusive (at least the cons I've attended). Years ago, I cosplayed as Gaara of the Desert...and I was so committed to the character I shaved off my eyebrows (lol).

    I suppose you could start by trying to educate her on the medications, surgeries, and the process to obtain both. It's not a speedy change you're seeking and the entirety of it is monitored by your doctors in collaboration with you. In your wife's defense, her concerns aren't unfounded. Any medical procedure is not without risk, but patients make their decisions by weighing the gain versus the risk. You may need to explain how your gains outweigh the risks and what the exact risks for you specifically would be, in order for her to better understand your desires to physically transition. The two of you could benefit by sitting down together to talk about what the HRT and surgeries will mean for your health, both mental and physical. Best wishes.

    Not to jump on your therapist's foot, but what you describe here, has been shown to be irrelevant to being Trans, although it was a theory at one time. Emotional neglect does not cause Gender Dysphoria, but it may hold us back on getting it out in the open earlier than we do. Whatever is going on has been going on for reasons of our own bodies and the brains in them. In your case the timing of your mother's re-focus on your younger sister may be misleading, but do discuss it with your therapist. Your relations with your mother do need to be resolved IN ADDITION to the Gender Dysphoria. As far as you and your wife's relations go, I would suggest that you see about getting two books by Jennifer Finney Boylan, the first is Shes Not There, about her life in denial for a variety of reasons, and the other Stuck In The Middle With You is about the relations she had in coming out with her family. Welcome to the Forums.

    I hope this doesn’t come off like a product plug but I’m trying out the meaningful beauty products and I’m very pleased with the results so far. After just two applications of the face serum and under eye serum I have noticed a very significant difference in how it has reversed some of the aging I was dreading. I also use the charcoal black sugar scrub and that has helped some but the two things combined are really getting great results! I’m losing those tired eyes and my blemishes are melting away.
