Thank you everyone.    It is the story of all of us who knew something was different from an early age but didn't understand.  It took me way to long to admit what I should have known all along.  

 

Have a great day.

 

Willow

 

 

 

I was different all my life. I hate most sports. However I will attend a football or Basketball game of the UW Cowboys/Cowgirls. I was considered weird, Fa*, F*iry. in most of my school. Even after joining the military. I was mostly an outcast. Maybe because I didn't go out on break and get plastered. Yeah, I made some friends. but most never lasted long mostly thanks to my wife. 

 

That story hits me hard, every time I even think about it. I tear up.

 

Well on to today. It is my Friday. ANd even a half day for me too. Not sure what I am going to do. shortly I am changing into shorts as the thermometer on the fence says 102. Tomorrow I have a phone appointment with my GYN. then a video one with my therapist. I need to check with my GYN on my blood work. My triglycerides jumped from 85 to over 200.

 

But anyway I am chilaxing the next two days.

 

Hugs, All

Good morning everyone 

 

Im taking a small day trip today. I am going to briefly see a friend. She will be getting her surgery in a little over a week.  Unfortunately neither of us can afford to get too close for fear of covid. She has to be extremely careful due to her upcoming surgery and i for a visit with an ENT that specializes in issues of voice and throat.  

 

Im actually going to borrow a special sewing machine to fix a sail.

 

Ah coffee is done. Have a great day.

Hi everyone! Pancakes at Village Inn this morning. A little treat! Anyway today I feel especially girly so I put on one of my sun dresses. I styled my hair to look cute and I’m leaving my gold nail polish on. It’s hard to look authentic but I do my best. 

A GIFT (Amazing Story) 

 

A gift of 100 dollars was given to me from a complete stranger on Sunday! This lady in the mall prayed for me and told me God loved me and I am very special to Him. I was at the mall at this time and my Ex and son came walking in. My Ex looked down and quickly walked by while my teenage son waived at me and smiled. I opened up to this lady about my Ex hating me and then right in front of her she ignores me. The conversation started with how the world is and somehow it got personal. She was asking God who she could bless! This is an amazing thing that of all the people there she chose me! She was thinking of the man that was there with a broken arm in a cast but it was me instead! So with all the crazy things going in the world and all the people in the world I was chosen to receive a gift from God! We all are loved and this could happen to anyone! 
 

Everyone here has been amazingly sweet to me! I am on a journey of healing. I believe this was a sign of that. 
 

Blessings to all of you! 
 

Love

Just had my day made. I was out working in on the bike. when I heard a roar over head. Looking up I see an US Air Force B-1B bomber fly over. Wings back and everything. it was so freaking cool. I texted my oldest, he said FE Warren is having there air show this weekend. Now to really make my week a B-52 needs to fly over. Just got a text from my son. The B-1b is from Ellsworth AFB, Were I was stationed. I was there when we first  got the bones.

Tori. There are more kind people in the world then unkind. These people hide and we need to help them come out. It’s easy to judge someone based on skin, dress, their body, voice, mannerisms, and you can pretty much pick what you want to hurt someone but being kind you have to look over all of that and release your inner rainbow and see that no color in the rainbow wants to be the only color. Who would want a one color rainbow? Judging is a fast escape and a cowardly move. Some people walked by and saw my toes painted and pointed and laughed at me. I said nothing. I just let them walk by.  This world needs to see until we can love one another without judging we will never move forward. There is no one exactly like someone else so why do we want people to be like us? Be yourself and no one can judge you but you. 
 

Love

Going to start my day at Burger King. I have to go grocery shopping today. Last night I went to the 5 and below store. I bought a sun dress and a mini skirt. Only 10.00! 
 

I will start working next week at my retail job. They gave me 16 hours. This will help with bills. I still have off Mon, Tues, and Friday. I hope I can handle wearing a mask all shift. 
 

Next week will hopefully be talking to the CPS Worker on the case against my ex. I hope to hear good news. I feel free right now. I’m sitting in my patio in my Grey mini and a black shirt. I a

 being who I want to be. 
 

I took a long walk to the interstate bridge last night. I go there when I want to be alone. I listened to music and danced in the bridge. It was a freeing time! Some truckers honked at me to! Lots of trucks late at night. 
 

Time to soon go get breakfast and start my work day. I hope I can be an inspiration to my customers and show them the kindness they deserve. We are all struggling and we all could use a helping hand and I am glad to be that for them. Not all are nice to me but so is life. 
 

Most gender me over the phone as female. I am just for fun tracking the calls that don’t. Only 2 people mis gendered me over the phone. Today is going to be a good day! 
 

Love to all!

Good morning, everyone!  (actually bedtime for me here)  I haven't posted on Morning Coffee for a while because I didn't have much new/news to share .. but!

TODAY!  I finally, Finally, FINALLY had my first therapy session.  And it was wonderful! 

I have a great therapist .. she let me upack 50+ years of baggage (well we ran out time .. but she actually let me go long past our :50 session), and she wants to see me weekly.

Still dealing with my wife's anxiety about me making progress, but I am hoping she will come along at some point (my therapist suggested this also).


THANK YOU to everybody on this Forum who have strongly encouraged therapy as an initial step.  It gave me the courage and determination to finally take that step.  HUGS for everyone❣️

Good morning

 

Starting to see little green tomatoes

Casting seeds elsewhere, in all directions, like fishing nets.
Exploring options and opinions.
I will not neglect what sprouts before me (...though I weed through it.)
Bloom where I am planted.
Bloom where I am transplanted.

Hi all.  I'm still alive and kicking.  Absent but not gone.

Still just adjusting to life on the other side of the country after the big move and setting up a new life here in Oregon.  Unpacking, waiting for furniture to be delivered and now working at my new job just this week.  There is the crappy 2 hour commute one way for a month before the local 15 minute away VA hospital opens their Biomed dept. back up.  But all in all its going very well.

 

THEE Biggest news is I finally received my legal name and gender marker change this past Wednesday.  I am now legally Shawna Leigh and female.

The process was said to take several weeks so I filled out my paperwork and mailed it late Sunday evening.  In hopes to get it going soon. They called me a couple days later on Tuesday with a court date either that afternoon or the next day.  Holy crap that is fast admin.  Well I was at work 2 hours away so I opted for the next day.

 

@Patti Anne wanted to be there for me so we went for the 1pm appointment.  Waiting maybe 10 minutes for them to call me in.  Patti was unable to go in with me which was disappointing at the time.  The court room was empty and I had just walked in carrying all my papers to prove residency, surgery, etc.. and just received instructions from the Bailiff where to sit.

This is when the judge calls out, "Your all set."

I'm I stop walking and said, "That's it?  I'm all set???"

He says, "Yep, all set."

I say thank you and turned back around.  Maybe a total of 15 seconds inside the court room.

Now THATS fast justice IMHO.

 

However we had to wait 30 minutes for the signed copy to come down to get my own official copies for other agencies but all in all it was super fast.

Its did not even hit me until that evening what I actually had happen.

Its amazing to realize a dream come true and it happening so fast I did not have time to let it sink in.

 

Patti Anne went and got me a small cake and we had a small birthday party of sorts as it was my first day as a legal women and one legally called Shawna Leigh.

Damn, Sis. Shawnaleigh Why am I always last to know these things. LOL. Congrats on finally becoming a woman. That is one reason I have looked a moving to Oregon. The name change is so easy, there.

However the gender marker change is easy here on your license in WY. Just need to have your Dr. fill out a paper saying they are treating you and you are female. Take it to the DMV and get it changed. piece of pie easy as cake. LOL.

      I am old (school) so I am usually reluctant to sign up for automatic payments for anything.  There are a couple of exceptions.  I change passwords and credit card numbers often enough to make it very tedious to have to remember which auto payments I'm signed up for and change them out.   So I buy my stamps, lick my envelopes, and pray that the "Mail Goes Through" on time.  Even that is becoming less of a sure thing these days.  Some days I don't get my mail delivered until 9 p.m.   Carolyn Marie

      The last time I read up on it, which admittedly was several years ago, it was considered a cosmetic procedure by the IRS.  I have not heard of any change.  Breast enhancement surgery for MtF and mastectomies for FtM are usually allowable deductions if one gets documentation from medical providers that it was medically necessary.   That said, the cost of medical procedures must still exceed the percentage of income (usually 7%) in order to be deducted, and finally, one must be able to itemize deductions, which is a more difficult threshold to get past than it was prior to Trump's big tax changes from a couple of years ago.   So, as usual, it depends.  Please talk to your tax advisor to be sure.  I am not a tax accountant, nor do I play one on T.V.  🤣   Carolyn Marie

      Anyone know whether facial electrolysis is a qualified medical expense for transgender people for tax purposes?  If i'm going to spend 10s of thousands I am hoping to at least find a tax break

      Hi Cris31, My wife and I have been married for over 40 years. I’ve wanted to be female for 70 years. I’ve cross dressed since age 6 but was never able or ready to accept myself as transgender until a few years ago. My wife tolerates my feminine side and I believe quietly accepts me.   I’m not on HRT and I don’t plan on having surgery. As of now, I’ll live out my life the way I am.   I’m sorry your wife feels the way she. Life is still good    Hugs Sandra

      My wife also mentioned becoming a dental hygienist which I don’t see a problem with I’m just scared because wrenching is all I know. I do agree with her I should look into doing something else I just don’t know what lol. I have time I just need to start looking and figure out what I would enjoy. I’m kind of burnt out on being a mechanic and that was pretty much my fault because my way of coping before was drowning myself in work and now I’m at a point I don’t enjoy it.

      My wife has known of my preference in underwear. She has told me she was surprised when we got married that she never found tighty whitys or boxers in the wash. She says she was shocked the first time she saw me in a thong.   For the longest time she and I for that matter thought I was just a crossdresser. I finally put two and two together about 3 yrs ago. Hey idiot you aren't a crossdresser you are a girl. It was last Halloween when she first saw me dressed.First time for me going out dressed too.  OH, god. the blow up that happened. WWIII has nothing on this.   Kymmie

      Definitely know what you mean by imposter syndrome. I woke up feeling very unsure, and I'm sure I will feel that way for some time. But I put on three of my mom's sports bras (temporarily), pants from my male best friend, a t shirt, and I stood in the mirror like a guy with my hands in my pockets. I felt really good looking and confident. I'm taking it one day at a time for the future, but it feels I've finally unlocked the first step of *something*.

      I've heard that from so many transgender people, once they start transitioning, their depression lifts considerably.  I'm happy for you Willow!
