Ooo That Smell

Recommended Posts

Timber Wolf

Hi Everyone,

The other night at work, I had a rather strange experience. I was eating M&M's out of a baggie, and as I started closing the baggie, I smelled marijuana. Not faintly, but very strongly, like as though that was what was in the baggie. Neither was it fleeting. The smell stayed until I put the baggie away. While it did not really make me want to get high, it wouldn't have taken long to start wanting to. It smelled good. And I haven't smoked any of that stuff in years.

I was kind of wondering if anyone else has had this kind of thing happen?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

I can't relate directly to what you are saying, but if you burn sage, it does have a bit of the same type of smell. I burn sage every morning as my sun ceremony and I do my gratifications.

I have found that two different things can happen. One is the thing that seems to be suggested above in that a similar smell (or a low concentration of the same one) can trigger the mind into remembering. Another, maybe even more powerful one is convincing the mind. An experience I remember well was when I was taking a night hike with a friend. He gave me a piece of chocolate. When I popped it into my mouth I asked what sort it was. He said dark chocolate, which instantly brought me to remember my childhood experiences with the chocolate of the time. It really mad me feel sick. I promptly threw up! It transpired the chocolate was really milk chocolate which I like. I really did taste the stuff I hated.

The power of suggestion :unsure:

Yes. Here's the cure. First burn your fingers, then singe your hair, burn tiny little holes in your clothes. Eat a whole box of Twinlies as fast as you can.. Better yet a case. Slam milkshakes of your least favorite  flavor with a cup of added sugar each. Put in a Lead Zeppellin album at full volume, dance as fast as you can while trying to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show. Then puke all over. It will be just like the good old daze!

If you smoke the nasty weed that turns to the flower in the mind after all that, we have a hug and a twenty four hour chip waiting. Don't forget to bring your medallion back. A loving satire by JodyAnn (If you giggle too much, we know you smoked.)

PS- Wave,waba,waba,waba... How many fingers??? LOL

A nice fresh bale of alfalfa hay has that sniff but the one that gets me is the rotten fruit and it's alcohol smell.  So far i've been blessed and M&Ms haven't taken me there.  

 

Hugs,

        Wow, that sounds so much like what I went through, Clara Bell.  I, too, thought maybe I was just pretending, and my GT talked to me a lot about it.  Please do be honest with your therapist about how you feel, and they will help you work through it, if they are any good at all.   Your therapist should let you do most of the talking, hon.  Be sure they have some experience with trans issues, and have some resources at hand to help you if and when you need them, such as endos and trans-friendly service providers such as electrologist and surgeons.   Carolyn Marie

      My therapist offered me a place where i could open up and explain feelings, actions, fears and eventually hopes without being judged.  From my experience the doubts you feel are not unusual.  I know i had them and despite years of being out as myself i still can get hit by doubts on occasion.  It's rare now but perhaps can be felt by many of us.  Finding a level of comfort was certainly helped by my therapist but as much as anything that was because i was as honest and open as possible for the first time in my life.  It was certainly emotional, filled with elation and sadness.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Make sure you tell your therapist about these doubts and thoughts of being a "pretender". That's exactly what they are there for. To help you understand yourself, and those thoughts. I don't know what I would have done if it wasn't for my therapist.

      Well, they should mention Gender or Transgender in their list of services provided.  Marcie is spot on with her assessment.  Mine guided me on my journey.   Jani

      My criteria: One that helps you figure things out for yourself and not one that tells you what you are.

      Extraction of the internal, see what comes out. I do have a sense of "ridiculousness" about seeing a GT, as if this couldn't be my reality, and I am going to laugh or frown at that time I saw a Gender therapist. There is this fear that I am a pretender that is just trying to avoid something, though if that is true and it could be revealed, well then good. What is to remember is that I am doing the best I can at learning, weighing doubts, and accepting myself no matter what lies ahead. I dont have anybody to talk to about this stuff(an old thought, if i talk about it, it becomes real, so i must not talk about it), so it is good this forum exists, and that I have a therapist now(hopefully a competent one). It gets emotional, and i dont understand why, i dont understand the elation, and the sadness. Does anybody have ways of qualifying a potential Gender Therapist?

       So I know for myself separating at 7 1/2 years, that yes some VA centers provide some basic care and treatment. But for those who made the long stretch to 20+ I was under the impression ya'll get Tricare still correct? I'm not sure how the VA's basic services are compared to still remaining on Tricare. As for current service treatment, still Tricare but obviously on post, I've not stopped receiving care up to this point. The army still continues to refine, but March is still slated to be the termination for surgeries covered, but I don't believe that affects HRT or BHH. Assuming Tricare's on post and retirement plans or similar perhaps expect something along those lines? But of course your best bet is to probably start calling and asking about it now.   ~Sara J

      Erin, welcome and back to your point.  The VA will treat you regardless.  You can ask for a referral to therapist and even obtain hormones after normal protocols are done, just like in civilian life.     What branch of service? Jani
