The Ride

Recommended Posts


Board the train
Through the window
The world passes by

Hearing clickety clack
Saying no, no, no
Don’t, don’t, don’t

People laughing, smiling
Why not me?

The miles go by
Further down
I cry

Ask for directions
Am told, they will come
Yet, no where, to be found

Miles have passed
Time has gone
Be aghast

See the light
Relief is here
The end is near

Note the name
Womanhood Express
Be not ashamed

For the station
Is here

Towards the light
The end is here

Born again
Home at last

No more fight
Found Peace
In the Light

Huggs, :wub:

      Happy birthday Debra! I'm on my 3rd sip of coffee (maybe it's more like a slurp). With the holidays and family looming, I'm feeling very uneasy. Wish I were in a better place, I'm certainly feeling less settled in life than i expected to be by this age. But I guess managing expectations is what it's all about. But I don't know whether to expect the best or the worst. TA

      Some really great thoughts shared with you here, Laura. I'm not sure I could add much to those except to state my belief that we are not on this earth to be unhappy. Each and every one of us deserves happiness. Time is so limited in life that it's not worth trying to sacrifice your own happiness in the (probably in vain) hopes of making someone else happy - especially if they seem to be shifting the goal posts. Let me offer you a big hug and a thank you for sharing this. I logged in this morning feeling very isolated and alone. You've reminded me that I am not alone.

      That sounds a good idea, at least for some. I don't know how many such numbers you have over there but, for me,  it gets confusing if numbers mount. I would still be calling 999 here which I learn't when I was little as a single easy remembered number rather than having to make a decision from unclear memory. I would not remember all ours without looking : 999, 111, 101 and 112. That is without a suicide line although 112 is the same as 999. Otherwise advising use of the Samaritans number here (free and unlisted on bills) 116 123. Obviously more to remember, but at least no area code so only six digits.   Tracy

      Thanks for sharing this, IMO you deserve happiness, I too struggled with the same feelings you have and it took a major life event to open my eyes. My wife of 20 yrs knew from the start I was at the least a cross dresser and she tried to accept it in much the same ways as yours (“I know you have to but I can’t really accept it”) type of way. Now that these things have happened and I came out as what I truly am my marriage is better. I had geared myself for divorce as well knowing her history. Like others have said be very careful of her sudden focus and deadline for a baby. Life is too short to make others happy when you can’t be happy yourself. It’s actually impossible to do. Find a new therapist and do some true soul searching to find out who you really are. Unfortunately it sounds like she won’t be able to be there for you, remember that’s not really her fault or yours, it was brought about by uncontrollable circumstances. I hope you can find yourself through all this and find happiness in whoever you may be.

      Me too, Sandra. I started at about 8, I seem to remember, but there were times before then when I just tripped on tight DIY costumes. I've reached 75 years with those same things as you, and I'm very happy to know I'm not the only fogy on this forum. I'm sitting here in a comfortable black bra that's starting to poke, and tight fitting tuckable panties. The feelings are moving away from sexual gratification toward enjoyment of the sensations and some understanding of how women feel. I'm letting my hair grow out, enjoy the "curls" in the mornings, but other than home, I wear it in a man-style pony with a bandana head scarf. I imagine myself as a young attractive girl, I enjoy dressing up alone at home, but the sight greeting me in the mirror turns me off on the idea of "presenting" in public. Uugglyyy.  Really, I have no idea what to make of it all. This forum is teaching me to accept, "It is what it is." I shop on ebay and AliExpress, where the clothes are cheap in price and quality, but it's fun getting new stuff in the mail. Go try it on immediately, usually with my collection of vibes, but they're becoming irrelevant. So I don't know where this path will lead me, but I don't care much at my age, and I'm curious to see the sights along the way. From here on out, we fogies can live our lives the way we want and I enjoy trying to figure out what that is.  Hope to talk some more, friend.

      That “mold“ is always changing with the times and it’s likely your view and understanding of yourself will change and develop over time.  In my own journey, as I reach each new milestone and look back on my thoughts and beliefs, I noticed how much they have changed as well.  Each journey is unique and independent of everyone else's.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/nobody-can-question-my-faith-evangelical-lutheran-church-ordains-first-transgender-latina   Japan has been very slow to adopt policies & laws to protect trans rights.  Not surprising in a tradition-bound male dominated society.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you @Jackie C. truly is important to find what makes me happiest. I lose sight of that a lot and get caught up in other things. I really appreciate your wisdom! The only thing stopping me from finding that happiness is myself.

      Here here! I love our community. So much love, it feels like family. It's probably the first time in my life (besides maybe my punk rock family) I feel like I belong...    ~Toni

      Gotta love the VA. I walk into the woman's clinic. the receptionist asks, "How can I help you, Ma'am. it just feels good. most everyone there calls me Kymmie. I truly am comfortable at the VA being my true self. Even though it is a place where military personal are everywhere. The air even seems full of T. yet.   I had a discussion with my GYN. I feel that I am working towards my goal. How ever slowly. All of my medical team is helping me towards my goal. Whether it is divorced or still married.   Kymmie

      Thank you for sharing this part of yourself hun! I hope whatever happens in your relationship, it's for the best for your happiness, and hers too. We do need to be self-focused sometimes though, or we might never be happy.    I totally relate to growing up feeling envious of females, shopping and dressing up and all. I remember always wanting that but it felt forbidden, you know...    ~Toni
