Hi! Im about to make tea, and breakfast, coastal clouds during our "May Gray" days, it should clear up later. Listening to the traffic and planes landing near by, not loud, I kind of like the the light noise, and watching the planes go by. One story higher, and I could see the San Diego Bay out my window(s). 

Im still smiling after my Dr visit yesterday, good news, I signed the "permission slip" to do the Orchie! A big baby step! 

Today is a good day!

evening all. Well chalk this one as a bad day for me. First was late for my PT appointment but my therapist was open when I got there so I was able to get in. The rest of the day went some what OK. Dysphoria was mostly high today.

Then, once the wife got home from work we headed to Cheyenne to refinance our bike to get some extra cash. 4 blocks from the house, I wind up nailing a suburban in the rear. Of course nothing real damaged on the Suburban. However our Lincoln MKZ got the grill busted along with the bumper. As far as I can tell only cosmetic damage. Even driving it to Cheyenne and back with no operational problems. Drove fine.

 

I am still upset about it. but accidents do happen.

 

Hope the rest of you had a better day.

 

Hugs,

0610hrs: No coffee on yet, but the crows are awake. I love crows, so that doesn’t bother me. Now the morning doves are cooing. Of course it wouldn’t be the morning without people rushing by in the cars down the street. I’m at a friends house, in the east county of San Diego, helping her out with her twins. I love the two princesses, they are two incredibly silly and clever 4 year olds. They won’t be awake for another 1hrish, which will be about the time I put the coffee on...maybe a bit sooner that perhaps...I hope everyone else has as peaceful morning!

Wow that's a great sunset picture !! how pretty. I used to go Pacific Beach a lot when I was younger (I grew up down there).

 

The picture I snapped was from my hotel room and it was in "old town" pretty much down the street from the stadium and convention center.

 

Have a wonderful day !

Hi! Sounds nice! Coastal clouds here, turned into a nice breezy day. 

Thank you! I used to take sunset pics like these all the time before they closed the access to the roof top here. The only time the open it now, is on the Fourth of July, then we go up topside and bbq, drink, play music all day, until the fireworks display. They put four barges on the bay and a radio station plays music to the fireworks. 

I wish they would reopen the roof, I definitely would be posting more posts here most mornings.

This morning I went to have a celebratory breakfast with My daughter, and her girlfriend,  my son and his girlfriend. My daughter Graduated today with an A.S. and Culinary Degree!! Super Proud of her!! She has worked really hard on this for a while. She deserves the best in life! 😊

 Congratulations on your daughters graduation.  I hope the breakfast lived up to the expectations of a person with a culinary degree. 

 I'm finishing my oatmeal cooked with our blueberries and maple syrup.  The trip from farm to table can be quite short here.

 Grow oats?   Na.... too much to do already.  That's coffee talking.

 

Hugs,

Thank you! I couldn’t stop hugging her yesterday 😂 I’m so proud of her, she very hard to do this. The culinary part was easy. The Math part of her degree was not. Anne was never good at math, but she pushed past that, and did it! 

The place was ok, but not the best. That ok, there are plenty more restaurants in SD for us to go to in San Diego another time. 

 

Mmmmm blueberries and maple syrup on oatmeal. Especially if they are fresh! Enjoy your breakfast!

(Hmmm, I wanted to add and can’t find the edit button). Having fresh breakfast from the farm has to be the best. How many farm animals do you have ? My friend I visit frequently, lives in an area where people have some goats and chickens in their yard. Some others have horses, one we can see from her backyard. A little further up the road The farms get bigger.

Sitting here, peering out the window...a plane passes by on approach to Lindbergh, passengers looking out of their windows at a rainy morning in San Diego.

Reading your post Ellora I jumped back in the past and visualised you peering out your window and seeing Charles Lindbergh flying past. Now that would have cheered up the rainy morning!

I almost thought you were saying something else Ellora! I’m so glad it was just me being tired and my vision being a bit blurry. 

 

It’s been unseasonably cold here lately, hot one day then cold and raining the next.

      Haha! I almost laughed too loudly, it was early over here. lol.    Partially cloudy skies, with a bit of blue and a nice coastal breeze. It shouldn't rain again until Saturday. I dont mind the rain, as long as i dont have to drive in it. I love to fall asleep at night to the rain.
    • Josie Beth
      Ellora I hope I didn’t make you spray coffee all over.    Thunderstorms again tonight and then another temperature drop? I don’t mind the cooler weather but the rain is a little depressing sometimes.
    • Kole Rickard
      Hello! I am Kole. My birth name was Kaitlyn. I didn't exactly choose the first letter to be the same for my name.  The name Kole or Cole was a name I really enjoyed. I don't exactly know how I came up with it or how I settled with it. It just kind of happened. Since I enjoyed the name, I needed to figure out how it suited me, so I did just that. I also tried a few other names but I didn't exactly like how any of them sounded with me. Cole was a name that a ton of my friends made up for me when I was.. around 7-8. I liked the name and I kinda stuck with it. The name didn't stick with me though. It was soon forgotten by friends but I still loved it. I would always sign papers, signatures, and things similar to that. It confused my parents and they disliked it so I stopped for a while. I am now 15 and I started to do it once more when I was 13. I messed with the lettering and found that the K is Kole is more like me. It is not used often and it has some contact with my birth name. It reminds me that I am still the same boy from the past. I have been openly transgender for 2 years now, but more comfortable for 1.    Now on to you, as soon as I read Samuel, I though of Samantha. Though, I think that is too easy. Though I don't know you too well, I don't have a vibe of how you are. If your friend suggests more earthy or down to earth names I would say out of the 3, Holly. I would think a good name as well would be Juniper, Brook, or Fay.
    • MaryEllen
      I will second what Vicky said. Over the counter, herbal hormones are bad news. To have any effect what so ever, you would have to take them in massive amounts.  The amounts you would have to take would be very toxic to your system. Leading to deep vein thrombosis, stroke, heart attack, liver damage among other things. I strongly advise you not to do it.   MaryEllen
    • Kole Rickard
      Nichole, I know this is very difficult to live with, and even more difficult that it is having an impact on your marriage. I really think therapy is a good thing for you right now. If it is necessary, I would say even couples counseling should be looked into if things with her gets worse. All I can say is don't give up and try to stay motivated. Take her comments lightly and don't let they get to you. I wish you good luck! 
    • NotSamuel
      Hey I’m pretty new on this forum but I thought I’d start it off with a pretty open-ended question.  My birth name is Samuel, and for the last two years I’ve been identifying as transgender. I’m finally starting to come out and explore my identity a bit more, which is why I’m looking for a name. Ive been experimenting with names a bit, Samantha being an obvious choice, and Chloe, which I used for a while online. However I need a name now that represents me more as a person. I don’t want to go by a name like Samantha jus because it’s the female of my birth name. I’ve asked my parents and they didn’t have a female name lined up just in case so I’m left to decide for my own. One of my friends suggested an “earthy” type name, or something feminine but still a little tough. So far I’ve narrowed that down to a shortlist: - Holly - Hazel - Erin   basically if you’ve got any suggestions, literally anything, I’d be really glad to take them. Or even if you have good advice or anecdotes about how you chose your own name, any comments whatsoever would be greatly appreciated. So yeah, thank you in advance if you do decide to make any suggestions:)

      As I sit here at my desk dressed as Nichole. I like the way it feels to be dressed as my feminine self. I love my long hair I have grown out. It's kind of scraggly right now as I have had weight loss surgery and one of the side effect is loosing hair. That's will turn around eventually. I have always had very thick curly hair. I love how it looks when I run my straightener through it. I like being able to style it. even though I'm not very good at it yet but I will learn. I have a limited wardrobe but do find the time to dress to express this side of my self. My wife and I work opposite shifts so I just have to be careful to reclaim all the evidence. She is aware of my feminine self but she is absolutely not supportive in any way. I say that but she allows me to wear Pantyhose, tights and leggings (even out in public). Grow my hair long. Wear guy appropriate jewelry (Earrings, Bracelets. I even have some piercings (which I love) that would go either way. I also keep my legs and armpits shaved. I had my chest shaved for the longest time but she has asked my to stop doing that. I'd shave it right now if I could do so without upsetting things.  I believe It's certainly an attempt to compromise with me. I was honest with her when we met. I told her about my Nichole side. But I wasn't dressing at the time and had no desire to do so. That's what I told her and at the time it was the truth. Somewhere along the way the desire came back. I have no idea what changed to bring this back. She did say the other night that if she knew this would come into our lives as much as it has. She's not sure she would have still married me. But she also said we have 18 yr's together and that's a lot of investment. So I'm guessing at this point she's not contemplating divorce. But I do believe she's hoping desperately that I can leave this part of myself in the past. Honestly I'm not so sure that this is even an option at this point. I have been doing or fantasizing about this stuff like so many others since I was 4-5 years old. So it's pretty much sewn into my life fabric so to speak. I am just hoping we can come to some sort of compromise. What that is at this point, I don't know. On my tv in front of me I have pics and gif's running on a slideshow. The pics/gifs vary through the whole spectrum. Crossdresser's/Transsexuals as well real women, "dressed to kill" as I say and in various sexual situations. Both straight and transsexual. I can enjoy images and videos covering the whole spectrum of sexuality...except. I can't get into gay sex. I means that as 2 guys, However If one is dressed and acting feminine. I'm good.  I am seeing a therapist to help me sort this all out. From that therapy I have concluded that it started due to my mother. She wasn't the most emotionally available person in the world. I had a sister that come into the world when I was 4. My older sister told me the love moved from me to my baby sister. My father was a soldier and it was during the Korean and Vietnam conflict's so he wasn't around much. So I was going through my early formative years with no male role model and surrounded by females. As I said, I'm seeing a therapist. It has been very helpful but I'm hoping to use this forum as a means of self exploration and as a source for other people input's and experiences that might help me sort myself out. I am NOT looking for sexual encounters or anything of that nature. So please don't even try. However, If you feel you have experiences/insight that I might find helpful, please feel free to post comments.   Thanks for listening. Nichole Spencer

      This thread --- https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/77407-conflicting-information-from-my-son/?tab=comments#comment-693841   I do agree with what the other Admin and Moderator said about seeing that he gets to a therapist who knows gender issues along with the ADHD and anger issues.  As much as we love our children there does come a time when we cannot have them rule us as well.  
    • VickySGV
      Welcome to the forums and I hope you can find what you need here.  The bad news is that on these Forums we cannot discuss "Hormones" from shops like you have.  The spellings of the one word, and the phrase "Anti-testosterone" tell me these are NOT medically prescribed products.  THEY ARE DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH and could prevent you from ever being able to complete your transition and live a healthy and joyful life.    The scenario is that those types of "hormones" (which could be fine if you were a rooted plant) will do nothing if taken in "safe doses" and so you say dirty words and move on to toxic doses that could easily lead to liver damage, which facilitates Deep Vein Thrombosis blood clots, which can break loose and travel into your lungs or your brain without having done a thing to give you hormone benefits of body change.  Even prescribed doses of actual Human Hormones have the same potential, but with the human stuff you will be under competent medical care and will be tested to see that they are not toxic.  Your OTC "vitamins" are not controlled and you may become ashamed to talk to your PCP in time to prevent tragedy.  The tragedy actually happened to the original founder of this web site.  Please take them back for a refund,. or throw them out and consider the price to be tuition to a school of experience.

      Thanks to both of you for the advice! I’m terrible at checking in online but it means a lot to hear those words. I’m trying to take them into consideration and just slow down a little. I tend to live anxiously and at a fast pace, but you’re right, it’s a lot better when you slow down and breath. This past week alone has had a lot of changes and realizations in it and sometimes that overwhelms me. But at the end of the day, when I’m alone in my home, I need to work on slowing down and just existing. It’s exciting to think about what life might have in store for me one day, but it’s also exhausting. Thanks again for the great advice, it’s really nice to hear from people that have felt similar feelings.
    • BowlofPetunias
      See the thread below for how he has been discussing it.  He only told me about the transgender issues about two weeks or so ago.  I have encouraged him to go to the GSA at school and I hope he will go to the state pride festival with me next month.
    • VickySGV
      Thank you for a better picture here.  You do in fact have your hands full there and it is going to be difficult.  You do have a responsibility and sadly you have only a short time -- two years is but an eye blink as I found.  With those facts about his behavior I doubt there is too much that would convince him to change his ideas.  I am not a medical professional, I am a retired tax collector who does have three adult children.  It would hurt, I know if he got into some trouble with the law, but it may be the way to get some serious third party help.  Perhaps talking to your local Police Department Human Trafficking team would be the best help for now.   Unless he is discussing his Gender issues though, his needs are outside of what we really have a clue on here.

      Hiya all,   I have been married for just under 10 years and we do not have kids, she has a high flying job and goes everywhere on business and with friends all the time.   I told my wife a couple of days ago I am MTF and transitioning, she said she would support it but would not support hormones or surgery was worried this would kill me very quickly.   What do you guys think? I am very determined to take medication and have surgery. I have been living with this since I was 5 and now I am 30!   Have a good one ladies   Cara
    • CaraMC
      Hiya all,   I am just new to the forums, I have been in the wrong body for just under 25 years now and at 30, I was either going to take the plunge or just live out my days miserably.   I decided to take the plunge, the NHS waiting list is between 2 - 5 years, as such, I found a shop in Manchester called Transformation, which has been there for around 30 years and they sell hormones. I have bought these (HRT, Oestrogen & Anti Testosterone Pills), I checked the credibility and they seem fine.   I wanted to have your guys thoughts, self medicating until I get to the medical help needed? This means I would pro-actively do liver and blood tests to ensure nothing went wrong?   What do you ladies think?   Best wishes,   Cara
