Shipmates

Shipmates a family

together we fight our ship.

Separate and the ship fights us.

Shipmates a family

On the ship we may disagree

On liberty no family is tighter.

Shipmates a family

Brothers and sisters standing together.

Together we will stand tell Davy Jones takes us down.

Shipmates a family

From before Trafalgar and Nelson

Midway and Nimitz

Through today our shipmates bring us through.

Storm or battle it okay your shipmate has your back.

Shipmates a family.

So shipmate know this that intel we meet in Davy's locker

I will stand proud and tall beside you

I will call you my brother or sister and defend you as such.

Shipmates a family.

First of all, I am blushing! I am so red that cherries look pale, hehehe. Thanks so much sweetie! :wub: I am very honored and proud that you wrote this after being inspired by me.

Secondly, we come from all over the place and you accurately describe that. I wish I was in San Diego, lol, much nicer than Indiana. It doesn't matter what our origins are, we are bound together by our fate. Here at Laura's, we love and accept everyone. What a wonderful family we have!

:goodjob: Love the poem too!

Hugs a ton!

Thanks dear. While i was never in the navy my brother served through Vietnam and my father in law was a captain in the merchant marine. I have to think the poem includes all of us in this ship of fools. I'll stay below and cook up some grub as Jody swings aloft in the rigging looking for icebergs. Good thing Lilly and you have a clue about the ships workings. Hopefully we'll find a ship's poet. Oh yes i forgot ....we have. Thanks

Hugs,

Charlie

We reach through the ages, find commonality, band together and rise up. we are stronger as shipmates then we are apart, just know this continues to be true even after we find our liberation, together we succeed, divided we are conquered. :: hugs :: always good to have people who have your back, knowing they are out there just makes it a little easier knowing there are many people fighting your same battles, you are not alone.

      Yeah, if I'm a 54DD then it comes in my size but not if I'm actually a 58DD. Lol
    • Shay
      thank you - it is nice to have friends like you to give a comforting word.

      What an unending nightmare for her mother and family.  I'm sure they're relieved its over at this point.

      That's a great resource and charts @VickySGV.  Thank you!   @HollyNoel I can attest to the accuracy of the information provided by Vicky.  I eventually found my "right" sizes by trial and error and reading reviews on Amazon for "fits as advertised" or not.  (wish I had this resource before that) Be careful if you are buying online and the vendor is an Asian outlet, because their size charts are different and you need to go up two full sizes normally (like I am XL in US sizes, but XXL or XXXL if its in Asian sizes)   Have fun shopping❣️

      T-Shirt bras are super soft and comfy. There's a bit of give in them too, so that's lovely. Good choice! Doesn't come in my size though. <pout>   Hugs!
    • Shay
      That is super great news. I am excited for you. I am waiting for news therapist to get my referral letter and want to see if my old psych will also help me. Congrats. Shay

      Hey @TransMex! I'm glad to see that you're still with us.   Real talk? That's your depression gnawing at your ear. It makes it harder to focus. It makes it hard to love yourself. It makes it hard to pursue your dreams. I get it. I've been where you are. You feel hopeless. Alone. Afraid. You just want to put your burden down. You need the hurting to stop. I let that go on until I was forty-eight. Don't do that, it was a terrible idea.   So yeah, the first steps are the hardest. You need to be talking to a therapist. They don't have to be a gender therapist. That would be ideal, but learning to love yourself is a very important step on your journey. I realize that the depression makes it very hard to take care of yourself, but that first step: Talking to a therapist, helped a lot. Hormones helped a little more. Every step made things just a little better. It got a little easier to take care of myself. It got a little easier to pursue my dreams again. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting better. Every little step helps. After you force yourself to take that first step, every step after comes just a little easier.   HRT should help with the mental static too. Once you can think again, it will be easier for you to plan and work towards your goals. In the meantime, we're always here if you need to talk, OK?   I can see that pretty girl looking back at me in the mirror more often than not. It's a great feeling. I want you to have that feeling too.   Hugs!

      I actually did get the Diagnosis I was expecting!    I made a video about the experience which is here      But obviously any questions you have I'm happy to answer here no matter how personal.

      Hey Mex your only 27. I didn't start to full transition until 3year ago. I am 57. Your young which is the best time I think to start transition. I am not sure if you are American Citizen or not. Your grammar is well verse. But if you are and you live in Cali. I would look at trying to get on The Affordable  Care Health plan or Obama ( Heath Care L.A) plan . They will pay for HRT , Gender therapist  and if you qualify they will pay up to 80% of all your surgeries , which included, Female Fascial Feminization , Vocal, Breast and you bottom.  Regardless, Hardest part ( for me) in my transition is moving forward, not giving up or in to my  dysphoria. The easiest  part is giving up. Be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      Sad that it happened, good that some justice is being done, and there will be some closure.
