I hope i will be able to make it back to the Sunday night 9:00 eastern  substance abuse meeting with the new discord system.  If you have joined us in the past or have never come to a meeting but think you might have a substance issue please join us.  The trans* community has an alarmingly high rate of substance abuse but there is a solution.

Here is the link:  https://www.transgenderpulse.com/chat/

Thanks Charlize,

I finally got signed up with chat now that I don't need Java and am hoping to make the meeting tonight. Are there any special things or sign ups I need to do first? Is it in the meeting room on the menu?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

You can post here anytime as well Regn and while it may take some time you will certainly get a response.

Even if you don't get messages on the TGAA list serve i hope you will come to the Zoom meetings as well.

They are at 7 on Mondays, 9 on Thursday, 6 Saturday and 8 on Sundays....all eastern time.  There is no need to use speak or use your video but listening can certainly help.  It certainly helped me.

Hi. I've been trying get into the chat room to chat with others who are in transition and dealing with all the aspects of living life and facing our issues without hiding in the bottle or in drugs and all the struggles and rewards that transitioning in recovery can bring all of us. I just don't know what I need to do to get there... kind of like when I first got sober and people guided me along the path of their recovery so I could chose my own. How the heck do I access the chat service here! LOL

I'm a newbie to this site (I guess you've figured that out?) and although I've downloaded the Discord app, installed it and registered, introduced myself in the Introductions Forum - Transgender Biography - I still cannot seem to access the chat service. 

 

I throw my hands up in the air,

I need your help, whomever's there,

So if you have some time to spare,

I'd like your expertise! Please Share?

 

Thanks,

Julie J

(a sober somewhat happy trans woman in transition :)

I'm sorry it is so difficult to get into the chatrooms.  I've had difficulties over the years and would still have issues without help.  I'm just not that great at using a confuser.  

Perhaps you could send a PM to Dev and she could help you get in.  I know i had to download Discord? and now seem to be able to blunder in without issue.

If your interested in a great trans meeting we also have them on Zoom and the information on how to get there is in this forum on a different thread.

Glad your here and hope to see more of you.

 

Hugs,

I think I just successfully created the Discord account and made it into TGPulse chat. But not sure. It’s pretty empty in there.

Please remember if you feel you may have an issue with substances that there is a weekly meeting here at the chat rooms meeting room.  There are also AA meetings for trans*folks at TGAA.  While those are for alcoholics most of us have been involved with many intoxicants.  Please PM me with any questions.

Our Trans Pulse chat rooms substance abuse meetings continue every Sunday @ 9:00 eastern.  It is usually relatively quiet so there is plenty of time to chat.  Hope to see you there.  

In 2012 i wrote this:

Considering the time and even a legal name change i guess i did.  Please join in what can be a good habit!

Me too, from Leah to Lee H, unless someone in the chain disapproves. I've been thinking, Zoom is smarter than me, insisting that I log on as "Lee". Maybe it's really just quite prescient. If so, I have a lot of questions for the Wizard of Zoom.

Really, I want to change because I want to start transitioning in earnest with HRT soon, I think. On this journey, I want to practice being myself, and not hiding longer than I have to. [Coming out timing issues abound, of course].

So, anyhow, see ya' at the meeting.

~~A hug from Lee, formerly Leah, originally Lee~~

      Great news @Emily michelle! Hope the increase of E and addition of progesterone give you results!    I am up recovering from the horror from my first GYN appointment yesterday. I love the GYN but hated everything else. Hopefully I heal from that both physically and emotionally!    Hope everyone has a great day!

      Right before electrolysis and therapist appointments my wife said we had to talk. We did and it was a tearful and long discussion but I'm  glad she did. Had I not been on HRT I would have fallen apart but I was loving "in the moment" and gave my complete attention to her concerns.    It drained her and me ... We talked through the electrolysis and I called in to apologize and rescheduled but I did make my appointment with my Therapist and it was a very good meeting.   I am not good with expressing my emotions and she gave me home work to help and she gave wonderful advice to discuss with my wife and welcomed her at any session or alone but felt she isn't ready yet and that we two have more groundwork to do.   I'm lucky. I have a wonderful wife and friends here who understand and co feel so good to finally have a therapist I feel really good about.   I am still drained but hopeful and optomistic

      @MargieK I think you let it come organically and I hope you have built trust in your child to be able to talk openly about feeling. When the topic comes but be supportive if the topic doesn't come up perhaps when stories about transgender come up on tv or news or social media make sure you mention that you understand their issue and are empathetic and build confidence in your child you want to listen.

      Obviously, I can't tell you how to do it, it's different for everyone and you have to do what feels right.   I can tell you what I did. At work I started by, as silly as it sounds, wearing scrunchies in my hair instead of the regular ties. The color quickly evolved from black to more fem colors. While everyone was distracted by the pink scrunchie in my hair I changed over to flare-leg jeans. Then I started wearing different tops. I did a lot of misdirection over a year. There were a couple things said but I don't think anyone really knew what was happening until I "accidentally" outed myself to the owner. I had somewhere to go after work one day and changed into more suitable clothes before I left.   Outside of work happened a lot quicker. I have a friend that I would go shopping with so I would just dress how I felt. She would help with the little social ques that cis-women already know and I was oblivious to.   The thing is, I don't want to have to bring it up in a conversation and I don't see a reason to. There are people close to me that I just outright told. Other friends that approached  me with fear in there eyes wanting to ask but didn't know how. I voluntarily told them but I've never wanted to or had a reason to bring it up in a conversation.

      @Heathick I am so happy you were able to tell your psych. That is a tremendous and exceedingly hard thing to do. It should get easier for you to talk about things and as time goes by it will get easier.

      Oh yea, that's working now. Immediately got two spam requests!   One requesting money and the other pure spam!
    • Petra Jane
      That is so weird! Thank you @Rowan. for letting us know about this. I was wondering why there was not the usual influx of junk filling up my inbox of late! Somehow, the form that the contact page used has disappeared!   I've made a simply straightforward one to replace it and will see if I can figure out how to replace the multi-function form that allowed you to choose a subject which then asked some more specific questions depending on the subject. But for now, there is a contact us form back on.

      So I am about to come out of closet soon. Have wardrobe and makeup done fairly well. So my question is how do I start telling people I am transgender? M to f. I am 54 years old. Just working on voice now to be able to pass. But to break the ice how do I bring it up in conversation??
    • Robin.C
      Omergerd ... I've got an appointment for electrolysis. Happy dance. I just needed to tell someone 😁 She's super busy this time of year here what with Spring and Summer heading our way over here, so I have to wait 2 weeks; it will fly past I'm sure. Only facial hair to start with and see how I cope. Yippee   Oh and for those following along at home, the home IPL does stuff all for my facial hair but seems to be reducing the foot and hand hair. Becoming less of a Hobbit every day ... hee hee   🤗 Robin

      If you can't vent your problems to your friends, then you need better friends. I'm just sad you are going through all of this. I have to say one thing though. It seems very out of the ordinary to be married and not transparent about who makes however much money. This would be concerning to me. I could care less about who makes the most or how even the split of bills seems but, there is no way I would accept not knowing anything. It may be normal to some people but I think any blurred lines are unhealthy with regards to a spouse. It's really none of my business so, I hope I'm not out of line. This sounds to me like you're being treated like your not an equal. Hiding income from a significant other does not sound like a health relationship. I remember I used to have to hide money to pay bills. I literally hid money for a year to buy my ex a car because, if there was money in the account, it was needing spent. It's not going to help a strained relationship. I hope things start turning around for you.    Abi
