Got glasses!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I got some girl glasses. The lenses are a little thick, but who can tell? They're big and round.

Made of gold medal and clear plastics. Matches both my hats. Got a chain too. It's gold also.

Currently I am wearing as my favorite pair of shoes a pair of gray slip on shoes that feel really good to walk in. Really like them though.

That sounds good :)

I generally wear glasses and have accumulated several pairs over the years. To me, like watches, they a re a bit of a fashion accessory.

There is nothing like a comfy pair of shoes to boost confidence. It reminds me of an interesting experiment I once did in my early (going out) days. I spent a while around town looking at women's footwear as they passed to get an idea of styles and clothes they wore to go with them. After a while I decided it was too difficult to really see in passing because, by the time my mind had registered, the woman was gone. That gave me the idea that if I wore a pair of women's shoes people would not really notice. To test this, as an experiment, I went out into a busy town centre, not far away, and, while wearing men's clothing. Iwore a pair of Mary Jane shoes (flat with single strap). Although a bit scary as it was well before I had ever been out dressed as a woman, and did not wear makeup in those times, there were no issues whatsoever. To me the point was proved.

One of my early purchases was a cute pair of cheap reading glasses.  They certainly helped tp provide that extra "clue" that i was female and didn't cost much.

 

Hugs,

Yeah, I do want to get some readers to sprinkle around my 'haunts'. I need to start keeping an eye open.

God, I love my glasses also.  They're my favorite of all the glasses I have ever owned.

Ya their a little old fashion, but no one can tell it unless you look from the side.  Don't really care.  I love them.  Transitions and everything.  It is like I have two pairs even though I only have one to keep up with.

I need me some boy glasses.  The ones I have now are not too effete, but they could be better.  Unfortunately my prescription is complicated and expensive, so I'll have to put them on the  wish list for now.

        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
