Well....................................

Lizzy and I went to Wells Fargo today to cash in an annuity that I have......

She has other money set aside, as well ........

Please don't say "You're lucky"......

Why? Because "Luck" had nothing to do with it......

I started this annuity 20 years ago and worked tons of overtime and didn't take a vacation for 7 years...

And now....we're finally going to get our SRS....

When I called my "Financial Adviser" , she said "You need to save this money for when you're old and need it.....

DUuuuuhhhh....

I'm 62 and Lizzy is 64.........we're old....

We need it......It's time for our SRS.......

It's our time.....period!

God how I love your posts, and Lizzy's to. I'm so happy for you. I'm looking forward to hearing about your experiences. Pity the poor nurses. They don't know you girls like we do <VBG>. Hurry home and take care of each other. Kathryn

I was gonna say, Dee Jay, not to spend it all in one place.

But, well, you're gonna spend it all in one place. :D

Better than putting it on the Pass line in a Vegas casino craps table, I'd say. Because you and Lizzie are guaranteed winners.

So....I'm going for the other thing......

Actually Dee Jay hasn't even gotten the money yet and she already went on a Lady Bug buying spree.

We are going to have to keep her in a Lady Bug free zone until the surgery.

Love ya,

Sally

Dee Jay:

It's called working your butt off. It's called making sacrifices. It's called prudent planning.

Like, 'nuff said! You don't owe an explanation to anybody, girl. It's YOUR capital to use freely.

You've chosen your surgeon. You've got confidence in him (assuming it's a him). You're good to go.

Actually, I saw in one of your recent SRS threads where you mentioned that you're NOT using some cut-rate doctor. Hey, nobody said you were, as far as I know. You found a way to finance your surgery, made the deal (or arrangement with whoever), saw the surgeon to get your clearance and, I'm assuming, make a good-faith deposit. What's not to like? All systems are go!

Those on here who want SRS/GRS should keep in mind that ANYTHING can be financed. Okay, most really good SRS surgeons want cashe on the barrel head. Many of them don't accept insurance. No biggie. People can arrange financing terms and conditions with third parites (like you did with your annuity in this case), make the deal, get the funds, pay the surgeon and have the surgery. My point is that it's POSSIBLE and most of us can do it!

Need money for SRS? Make like Donald Trump, think possibilities, make the deal and get it done! Think it can't be done? It CAN be done! Dee Jay found a way. Most of you can too! As for me, I'll most likely not have SRS/GRS. I waffle back on forth on the issue. Anybody who waffles about it most likely SHOULD NOT have the surgery. That's just me.

Those of you that WANT the surgery CAN find a way to have it. Yes, you CAN!

Believe :friends: Lacey

Oh, yeah:

Think The Loy-Jenkins SRS Express is about to roll! Alright! Congrats! All aboard! Roll 'em!

Financial advisors...... yeah some punk who has no idea.........

Ignore the punk, and do what you need to do with your money.

It is your money afterall. The punk has nothing meaningful to say. That punk represents the bank's interests., not yours.

Love

Brenda

It's all arranged ...it's our money....

It's a perfect deal.... The SRS will be in a major medical facility (USA) and with a very experienced doctor....

Are we excited and happy?

HELL YEAH!

It's the end of this portion of our transition....

It's not the end, though.....

Much to go.....

....and I still need to collect those fees from all those other mods.....(tell ya latter)

If I had ignored my financial adviser and not left my money in his so charming hands I'd have top surgery and skin reduction scheduled for next week already. And he might have had to wait awhile longer to retire I suspect. Lost over 100K that way.

I'd spend my last penny and count it well lost -if I had one instead of my financial adviser having it :)-to get top surgery. Beats spending it on nursing homes and Depends some day anyway.

Go for it girls.

How often do you get to have a lifelong dream come true and how could anyone ever put a price on it?

I am so deeply happy for you both

      Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Good morning everyone!❤   Happy Birthday rorylm!🎂 Hope you have a wonderful day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾
    • Charlize
      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize
