Trans AA List serve and Zoom Meetings TGAA

Recommended Posts

Charlize

I just wanted the folks here who have or think they may have a drinking problem that there are at this point 4 transgendered Zoom meetings available. The times are Thursday at 9:00 eastern, Saturday at 6:00 eastern and Monday at 7:00 eastern (now Sunday at 8:00 EST as well). I have found them to be wonderful with the trans* spectrum from all around the word in real time meetings. It is also possible to not turn on a camera if one is worried about privacy.

I am not the only person from Trans Pulse who attends. If going to real life straight meeting is difficult or not, these meetings offer a great alternative. To join us please an e-mail to https://oso-aa.org/mailman/listinfo/tggroup_oso-aa.org . You will be sent links to join us. or PM me here at Trans Pulse and i'll help.

Hope to see you there.

Hugs,

Charlize

Might want to see if you can get this pinned?

I agree it's a wonderful opportunity to engage with sisters and brothers from far and wide...

I might go to the one on Saturday, Thursday is definitely out of the question. Besides, my looks have changed. ;)

Our looks are not as important as our desire for sobriety which is good for me.

Hugs,

Our real time face to face on line trans* groups have gotten bigger than Skype can handle so we are using a different program to get together as we did before. The link above will bring you to us if your interested. You can be up with a live picture or not and like any meeting you can share or not depending on how you feel.

Hugs,

Charlize

The online f2f on the internet trans* meeting has outgrown Skype.  We are now meeting on Zoom.  We have also added a new literature meeting on Mondays at 7 eastern.  During the week there is a forum like meeting on line as well.  This is a wonderful opportunity to join an AA meeting if you are isolated or unable for whatever reason to attend in person meetings.  We have both audio and video of each member of the group but if your shy you can also simply be a fly on the wall.  Many of us feel that way at first.  Laughter and happiness can be part of life as well as the serious problem of finding relief from our addiction.

The link to get started if you are interested is:  6 posts above this one.

If you think you might have a problem with alcohol you may well find these meetings helpful.  The list serve goes out to over a hundred trans* alcoholics.  Our Zoom meetings  have up to a dozen folks in real time, able to speak and see each other if they wish.  We have everyone in the spectrum represented with one purpose.  To help each other with sobriety.

The TGAA Zoom meetings are expanding to add a 4th meeting taking place on Sundays at 8 eastern.  Join us if you have a problem with alcohol or other substances either at the list serve or the Zoom meeting.  You  are not alone in having issues with substances as you are not alone in being Trans*.   I found that i could find sobriety with help and in doing so i found acceptance of myself as well.  Please know there is a way to be sober and enjoy life as well!

I have just finished rewriting the text of the TGAA groups listing on the AA's website and thought it might be of interest here.  I've certainly been enjoying the meetings with trans diverse addicts from around the world.  If you think you may have an issue come join in.

 

TG-AA is a group of transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  We use an email forum with a weekly topic as well as having Zoom meetings 4 days a week for transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  
Meetings are as follows:   9:00 pm Thursday, topic discussion;  6:00 pm Saturday, Big Book study;  8:00 pm Sunday, speaker;  and 7:00 pm, Monday,  literature study. All Eastern Standard Time.   
We share our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking
To join us please contact us at:   https://oso-aa.orgmailman/listinfo/tggrouposo-aa.org

Hope to see you there soon Robin!  You won't be our only member from Australia.  Hopefully you will ask Ravin for our Zoom info.  

I saw your welcome e mail at the list serve.  Just email Ravin at the address he posted at the bottom of that email if you wish to come to the Zoom meetings.

      Over the years I had my coworkers make plenty of statements about my reactions or things I said that compared me to their wives or some other female relatives. But instead of going defensive or getting upset I would just smile and agree. They never understood my reaction and any confrontation would just dissipate. However, for me all those statements were like badges of honor even if I didn’t fully understand why 😀

      Hi Kay, m'amie. Good morning and wishing you a good, safe, day.  I've been looking for the button to send you a PM, if you tell me you'd like to receive one from me. ... But I'm old and seriously maladroit with lining up all the digits involved with doing anything digital ... well, almost anything.... If you want a PM from me, know how to do it, and can tell me; and if you are interested in the slightest, I'll send you a little more info about myself and hope you send something back.  I feel like a giddy teenaged girl. Wow. Feels ... strange? ... good?

      thank you! it all makes sense when i write it down, but my brain’s in a big mess. i really should contact the GIC, i’m just finding it stressful at the moment

      Hair removal was my first priority.   My plan was to complete it before starting HRT and way before surgeries.  I would have, except I went ahead and had hair follicle transplants last year....  Which I love, despite it mixed up my priorities.   I was paying $60/hour for electro which seems normal price, as long as your buying larger blocks of time.  When things stopped in March, I was around $5000 in, plus around 50 hours labor bartered to my former electrologist.  I was going once a month since 2015. Usually 2 hours.   My current hair removal plan is saving up and waiting for Precision Hair Removal in IL to open back up for full face, multi tech, all day high volume clearings.  Not $26.  The tech there is highly recommended for backing up her claims with timely results on transwomen.     If i knew for sure a good rep electro tech where I could go weekly and actually get cleared, I might consider moving there.  I've done a couple consults looking around.  But precision says they could clear me in five mega sessions every ten weeks.  I'm thinking maybe possible since I already had so much done.   One thought on home lasers/electro: I am MUCH slower working on myself than a pro.  And this is a LONG project.

      although my wife was NOT happy when she hear me make the call - there is a local electrolysis salon professional who charges $26 for 15-30 minutes and she is like 10 minutes from my house and I have a consult Monday at 10 AM. My wife did say - get an electric razor and try that and asked if she does wax or electrolsis. I said she has various methods and will let me know Monday.   I am afraid of my wife's reactions to my forward moves towards transition and haven't proached the full surgery wants yet.   I know that when I told her I wanted to go oh HRT she said ok and I sent her links to some of Dr. Z the gender psch in California who talks a lot about older transitioners and how marriages can work out to the positive side but I happened to see her email account a month later and saw she hadn't opened it.   I have always been afraid to talk to her about my issues although she knows about them and even caught me years ago self HRT ing and had me re-visit the psych I used for depression. She has a friend who lost a husband a couple years ago and a long turn patient she cared for as a nurse and recently told my wife she is in a hospital in Germany for depression. My wife told her I was on new meds to help with struggles I've had for over 30 years.   I know and hope she can go through her understanding and phases of grief and come through continuing to love me and support me but I am pretty much a mess right now and even though I mentioned in my most recent blog about Attitude - I know I must continue moving forward for my sake and hope and pray she comes with me but I can't control her destiny or journey and know I must do this for my sanity.   I know the only one I have control of is me and I'm fighting the demon inside that is telling me - don't lose her.   My bigger demon me entire life has been being abandoned and it has happened so often I still feel that it will happen once again.   Thank you to all here who understand and can hold me in your mental arms and comfort me.   Shay

      I often wonder, who am I. 
    • Shay
      Thank you - tried to find out about local electrolysis and sent request - of course no response. Cleveland Clinic suggested several hair removal places so the search begins in Ernest today and I'm don't even know who Ernest is.....
    • Michellle
      That is something this guy would say to me. It’s funny this guy is a service tech also. I wonder if its the same person...lol. I love your comeback, I will use it next time.    Michelle
    • Charlize
      Elizabeth i like that response.  I've mentioned to a couple of men over the years that i am  unfortunately not at attracted to them.  That response might have worked well for Michellle as well, with the possible addition of " you are not that attractive." I think the strangest thing anyone said to me, and it was repeated throughout my life was:  " It is a phase and you will grow out of it." That's strange!  Certainly when you see me now.   Hugs,   Charlize

      There is a reason an Electrologist goes through hundreds of hours of training.  I honestly would not use a home treatment.  The real deal is time consuming and expensive but it is safe.    
    • Shay
      Still - you sound like a nurse and that is good.   Fly high FREEBIRD....🙂
