The Horror In Myanmar

Recommended Posts

Guest Isabella

I know much time has passed since the typhoon, & it's largely forgotton about in the world comm, but I am still haunted by all the needles suffering & death that could have been eased by the gov accepting humanitarian aid. There were so many who were willing & able to respond!

Kia Ora Isabella,

It is sad what been happening in Myanmar[burma]-and also what's been happening to the opposition leader 'Aung San Suu Kyi' she been imprisoned for over twenty years [under house arrest], but I'm not too sure why you have put this in the Buddhist section...The actions of the ruling military government has nothing to do with Buddhism, even though many Burmese are Buddhists, what the military government is doing has no connection to Buddhist philosophy, in fact the government has cracked down on Buddhists who oppose their rule...

Myanmar might be seen as a Buddhist country[just like the US is seen as a 'Christian' country] but what goes on inside Myanmar [the laws imposed by the secular military government] has nothing to do with Buddhism, it's all to do with politics and power, the government's need to keep hold of power at all costs...Sadly the local population continue to suffer because of this...

I agree! I've kept up with what news is made available including the tragic items you were so thoughful mention. I posted this topic in this forum specificly because the majority of the people going though this needless suffering are Bhuddist. Thank you your well worded & thought out response! Warmest regards, Isabella

Kia Ora Isabella,

Thanks for that, I was just curious as to why you put it in the spiritual/Buddhist section and now I know...

Wed. night on PBS, I think they said Frontline is doing an inside view of a painfully slow collection of video & other forms of info on what has been going on along with the more imediate aftermath of storm in Myanmar. Info is very hard to get out of this country & this may be a rare chance to try & put some pieces of what happened together.

We have to expand on our abilities in diplomicy. Myanmar is of little to no threat to the US. We have to find ways to get humaniterian aid into these countries after natural disasters through diplomatic chanells in more creative ways. This has been a human failure in action no matter what our Pov is.

      Salutations and welcome Lily, hopefully you can find some peace of mind and learn of yourself as well as others... The time to grow is now bit by bit🎵

      Well, I suffered for years not knowing or understanding how I felt or why.  Depression, anger and periodic “needs” involving being feminine.     When things got too bad to deal with I finally sought help.  It didn’t take long for my therapist to figure me out.  I am on hrt but no plans for gcs.     like others here, could I forget who I am?  No way.  Could I stop everything that I’ve done since ?  Not likely.  But, I am not full time.  That’s because my wife of 48 years is not happy about this but I don’t desire to let things go.  Lastly, I’m not ready to come out completely.   Could I go back to being cis, not likely.  At least not without bringing back extreme depression.

      Salutations Tristan! Welcome to Transpulse!   We're glad you're here. I'm going to stop short of chanting, "One of Us! One of Us!" Please avail yourself of the boards and the discord server. Join in the conversation, ask questions, participate as much as you're comfortable with. I think you'll find us an understanding and supportive community of folks who have, let's face it, been there.   I look forward to getting to know you!   Hugs!

      Here goes!   My name is Tristan and that maybe the first time I have officially introduced myself that way.  I was born in a body that I dont recognize on so many levels and, as yet, can't fully define.  I have had people try to define me for so many years that I have no idea what I really want for myself and that is part of the problem.   I hope that here I can find friendship and support as I puzzle through the jigsaw of identity that is me.    Right now I would like to use the pronouns he/him.

      I know what you mean. For the last 25 years, I thought of my feminine side as a "Michelle" but she only got a couple of chances to make an entrance into the wide world.  Now that I've decided to come out, I realized I would probably need a name that didn't also belong to my cousin.  The only names that felt right were variants of Michael, possibly that 51 years of using it biasing my thinking.  I have (for now) settled on Michaela, although I prefer the spelling "Mikhaila". Ultimately, I'd rather my name be easy to spell...

      we have to walk the line between painting a realistic picture to people who starts transition and also just being optimistic and giving hope to people. I love the model where you need to go see a gender therapist that has the job to be very real with you and tell everything about transition not being a miracle cure or something and helping people clear the confusion and on the other hand me personnaly just telling my story of things going far better then they were and not trying to put false shadows in the picture. We need the stories where things don't go too well to warn people but we also need the stories that are going well and that are giving hope. We need hope.

      My wife and I enjoy going out together.  No one thinks anything of it, and we don't get stared at.  The only time the question of whether or not we are a couple comes up is when we are asked if we want one bill or two.   My wife was a bit weirded out about being a lesbian through no choice of her own.  She considers herself a "lesbian by marriage".  But she has no reservations about us remaining a couple.  As far as she is concerned, my transition is part of the "for better or for worse" that she signed up for.  I am not sure I could have done the same had the positions been reversed, so I consider myself very lucky.   My wife likes to be bratty.  Sometimes when we are walking down the street and she spots someone looking disapprovingly at us, she will hold my hand, just to give them something to stare at.

      Thank you so much i do try my best   Sadly ive lost count on how many TS /TG  that have takend this step  (ie transiton + also in some cases HRT etc...  ) to fast and then crached (incl in here as well as otherwise online ) and its therefore i try to keep this aspect alive as much as i can  and this goes  for  fore all ages  young as well as even older then me  both MTF as well as  FTM  . Its VITAL that we that have transitioned   (with or without HRT or  and  SRS )  DONT  paint up this glorius life  and  happiness  /princess  / Prince life  without also mentioning the struggle and price many have to pay. + the medical risks of this as well as of course what we have gained  of course.   And i would also like to add  reg  our situation over here from  having to high  bounderies (they were  WAY to high )  to be alowed to  start the journey they have now lowerd  to much  and  therefore  we have this  problems  with   more and more  TG`s  /TS   being alowed HRT etc... to YOUNG when they get older  they regret  there  choice .   Also i must also add that of course  there are happy cases   of  (in this case  )  FTM  that have  gone back to female  but as i said  way more that havent been happy ending

      @Sarahnr1 You wrote it clearly dear!

      Welcome Lily.  I'm glad you decided to come here and that you thought it would help.  There are many kind people here to speak with and even vent every now and again, as life presents challenges.  I'm happy to hear you've been able to break through and speak to someone.  This is good.  Understandably your family knows you well and sees the change in you.  Talk to your therapist about how to address this subject with them.   All my best. Jani 
    • Sarahnr1
      I couldent agree more  nor been able to express it  better  even as i tried  WELL spoken indeed   
    • Jani
      Doubts are common, but if you're on the right track they subside.   This is the critical point to understand.  Transition does not solve all the worlds problems.     While there are some that bemoan "gatekeepers", taking a good long time to grasp all the ups and downs of transition and coming to peace with your inner self can never be overstated.  Its always nicer when looking over the fence.  But no doubt this is hard work, emotionally and physically.    Jani
