I've been to both when I had traveled west for work and I've tried them both.  Sort of upscale compared to McD or BK.   I remember buying a cool In 'n Out tee shirt.  I know they used to sponsor a drag racing team.  I eventually gave it to a good friend.   

 

Neither are here on the East coast that I know of.

There were in and out burger places in mass when I was a kid. But they shut down decades ago. Probably in the 80s

Hmmm If you have these consistently/chronically, you might want to get these checked out by your doc.  There are quite a few things that can cause them including hormonal imbalances, side effects of some medications, low blood sugar, TB, certain cancers, and a few assorted neurological conditions. 

 

And good morning to everyone.  Just getting ready to enjoy a beautiful day. 

No I just had the heat up for 20 degree weather and it warmed up for some strange reason overnight. Thermostat got turned down to a more comfortable temperature. It’s not a sauna anymore!

Got my coffee and trying to finish it before heading out the door. One more day of hell and then I’ll have 2 days off! I’m going to have to visit the library and get some more applications filled out since trying it on my phone is an absolute nightmare. I’m wavering between asking for another reassignment or trying to stick things out until something more permanent comes along. The trouble I’m having is not the actual work but standing in one place for 12 hours is not good for my feet and knees. I’m better off moving around so my feet and legs get exercise and the ligaments don’t stretch so badly that it causes injury. I’ve been injured before like this and had to go through 3 months of physical therapy which is not exactly fun, not to mention I can’t afford any time off for that. I’m a little bit scared to tell the agency because I can see the eye rolling now and “here we go again” looks. I just don’t think they are really trying to find a good fit for my needs. It’s as if they roll the dice and I end up wherever but no matter what benefit the job might have it’s as if the only way the client company feels justified employing people is to inflict some brand of torture on us just to feel like it’s worth the cost for them. What to do?

Wow. I hate double posting but since everyone seems to be dealing with the accidental ban problem this morning I guess I’m here with my coffee alone for now. I had to restart my phone completely because cleaning cookies didn’t seem to work. I always crave real cookies whenever I hear about browser cookies. My coffee is lonely now 😥

Good morning everyone 

 

coffee is is brewing.  Coldest night and morning of the year, low 30s with a wind chill in the 20s. Yes I realize this would be a warm spell for some of you.   Tomorrow is supposed to be colder the a slight warm up.  

 

Have a a great day and don’t eat too many cookies, save some for the rest of us.  😀

I’m actually lacking cookies right now. The other night I had a strange craving for a jumbo jack hamburger but there’s no jack in the box around here. I had to settle for wheat bran cereal and soy milk this morning. But it’s good.

 Oh my goodness, I stopped at Jack-in-the-Box at midnight last night because I was thirsty, I don’t drink soda anymore so I wasn’t sure what to get, in fact it’s gotten so bad if I get a Dr Pepper or Coke I can’t taste it correctly, it tastes weird and carbonated and not at all what I remember. I didn’t realize this but they had mellow yellow, so I got that and headed home, it was OK but again it just didn’t taste quite right, so I only had a little bit of it before I decided I was done. I don’t know  if my taste buds are just out of whack due to nearly a couple years of HRT or if it’s just old age, but soda just tastes wrong to me these days, and I pretty much only drink water. The one good thing Jack-in-the-Box has that I routinely get is a chicken club salad or their grilled chicken salad, both make a nice quick dinner and since my kitchenette is not finished and I have no pantry and no refrigerator this is often my dinner These days...

 Hugs, 

Jackie

I’m not a huge eater of burgers anyway it was just a really odd craving. I’m finding myself eating more chicken, soup or salad, and of course yogurt. I’m not a huge fan of sodas anymore either. I’m more interested in a good cup of cocoa or chocolate milk, and coffee of course. Juice is always a good one for warmer days. And I’m more prone to drink water most of the time.

Thats me too, but add in fish, and a little pork.  I rarely drink cocoa (but I enjoy it!) so its coffee in morning, maybe a hot tea in afternoon and water, water, water every other time!  😀

I love fish but finding healthy fish is not easy. Maybe there’s some at the local farmers market during summer time. I’m definitely going to check and see. Mmmm, lovely fillets with lemon!

Good morning everyone 

 

I had my coffee and breakfast today.  Definitely cold here for here last night.  I spotted a small bird who had taken shelter on top of a porch column.  That got it out of the wind tucked up in a corner.  Felt sorry for it.  

 

Started a fitness program this week.  Did yoga Tuesday and tabata last night. Ok today every muscle in my body is sore.  Maybe some water aroebics tomorrow or more yoga we’ll have to wait and see.  

 

Sunny 😎 today.

 

Wishing everyone a great day.

Good morning! Still need to make coffee but I’m starting to get ready for the cold dark cave I must go into this morning until this evening. I’m not looking forward to the pain in my feet but it pays the rent for now. Yesterday I took my drug screening for the other job and hopefully they behave until I can safely quit my current job and start training for management in the new job.

Hi

 

Well, I’ve had coffee and breakfast.  I’m a little nervous or perhaps excited today.  I’m going to my first live support meeting this evening.  

 

Josie, good luck with the new job.

That's great Willow ! I hope it goes well for you this evening, and you have a nice experience. Your post made me recall my first support meeting, it was at a place called Ingersol in downtown Seattle. Being with others and hearing their stories and experiences live and in person, was an experience I'll never forget.

 

Coffee is on this morning, cool and clear here in the PNW, and should be a nice day. I'll be outside later in the yard...

 

Hugs

I don’t like coffee and it’s almost lunch.  Big day ahead.  Joining a trans support group today and attending my first meeting.  Super excited and nervous at the same time.  Going to have my hair done before.  

 

Wish me luck😊

I remember my first meeting, I enjoyed it a lot.  Until that time, I felt pretty much like the only transwoman in the entire state of Florida.  And there they were, 20 others like me!  I was not alone anymore!

I hope you enjoy your meeting as much as I enjoyed mine!

I had to miss my group today because of work but hopefully they meet again next weekend.

 

 It’s really nice to be able to be around other trans people and just talk.

I miss my TG group from way back when.  I met so many nice people but over the last 30 or so years have lost track of them.  I wish there was a weekly group in the area North of Seattle (Snohomish County).  The closest group is in Bellevue which is just as far as Seattle where my original group still exists.  Both take over an hour by car and longer if there's any traffic.  I have found only 2 ppl near me that are TG..  In such a huge metropolitan area, it's hard to believe so few of us post on forums.

My group is also almost an hour away in down town Fort Myers, an they meet only once a month.  But once a month is better than noting!

The area here has about 1 million people living here, but I do not know anybody transgender or intersex outside of the support group.

 

I wonder if people afraid to come out, or what it is?

I just wish there was a support group remotely close to me. None, here in Laramie, none in Cheyenne or Ft Collins. I think the closest is maybe boulder.

 

There is a PFlag group here. I contacted them about any trans groups. They were supposed to give my email to another trans person here in Laramie. Still haven't heard anything. 😞

 

Since I am looking to move to Chattanooga, I contacted the community LGBTQ center. Heard nothing. :(

There was a listing on PLlag awhile back for a group in Everett which is only 15 mins away for me but the website was defunct and the email didn't bounce but never got a reply.

I may go to my old group in Seattle eventually..realistically it's an hour and a half with traffic.  No one I know will likely be still attending.  Its been way to long.

That's my guess but it's not likely to get too much better than it is right now...acceptance wise..I hope I'm wrong though.

      Thank you. Because you like them here are some more. These pieces are to show courage. In the first one I chose pink because I wanted to show she was fighting for love.    Second piece she has a pink wolf. A wolf is suppose to be a vicious animal but when tamed my love it becomes a girl’s best friend.    Last piece I chose blue and red (red is my favorite color) Blue is for male and red is for female. The two are mixed but present together bring about harmony and strength.   I can’t take credit for the picture but I was the one who colored it. Enjoy!    Love   Tessa👩‍🦳
    • jo_g
      That's true, thanks.  I think I'll give them a call, but am hoping it'll be OK to shave sooner rather than later. 😂
    • jo_g
      Great news! Super happy for you.
    • MarcieMarie12
      Hi Jo-g, I will add everyones experience with laser and electrolysis is a bit different. I went through laser without lidocaine,. But for electrolysis I needed it since it took for ever. I did not worry about my body hair, as with HRT it turnedo ut less than most cis girls.   In regards to the not shaving, I was not told that in regards to laser for myself. But I can see they might have a reason for it. From not irritating the skin, to seeing how effective the treatment is. Your technician may also be worried about scarring. But in the end asking them about will tell you more, as they might also be trying to gauge the effectiveness of things.
    • SaraAW
      Naomi, I feel your pain. No matter how many different directions I shave in, I have a permanent very dark shadow. Within a couple of hours, you can use my face like coarse sand paper.  I’m torn between starting laser or electrolysis. Most of my hair is still really dark, with just a few patches of gray.    As for body hair, shaving or even using depilatories leaves me with insane ingrown hairs. I’ve actually started plucking chest hair to help with the GD, but it takes for ever. I might try waxing.    I wish you all luck in the quest for smooth hair free skin.    *hugs*

      A second hand makeup manual that I picked up some time ago suggests that liquids like mascara and liquid foundation are good for about 6 months, while pressed powders and the like should be good for up to 2 years with proper storage (though it bears frequently checking their viability during that time).

      Gosh Jackie that sounds like a genuine epiphany moment! It is not a bad thing to be able to forgive hurt, this world would be a much better and safer place if others could be as big hearted as you seem to be

      Welcome Lexi. I’m only a couple of years older than you and in a similar situation, without a child though.  It can definitely be stressful and worrying at times. But as I begin to learn to listen more to myself and what I feel inside, the better I am feeling.    I’m hoping to see a GT shortly, my GP is researching to help me find someone qualified in the area.    Lots of great people here, lots of information and many relatable stories.    Welcome.    *hugs*
