@ShawnaLeigh, divine bovine, girl! It doesn't seem that long ago you were just starting your journey... This is a major milestone! Congratulations to you! I am so happy for you! You are an inspiration to me.  Things have been going so slowly for me, but I hope Maryland will be a great place for the new me. Hearing about your progress helps keep me going.

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

Congratulations @KayC It feels good doesn’t it? Just sharing it is a release of stress. I’m glad you’re getting support like that. You’ll start to see your world in new ways and if you’re lucky, some really sage advice.

 

My Best,

Hi

 

@ShawnaLeigh congratulations and happy rebirth day!

 

I’ve been working all day repairing a and trying to get the timing set on a sewing machine. I finally got it working well close enough, to sew two sections of a sail together. I had a sail that was in really good shape but was too big.  I cut it down and am sewing it back together.  I’ve broken a number of needles.  It’s still not quite right but I got it working so I starting sewing. Taking a Minon Break.

I had a pretty good day today. Woke up at 4am (it's been happening a lot lately) made watermelon sorbet. I never tried making sorbet and I don't like watermelon. Must be a good combination though, cause I love it. Than I felt confident enough to strip down to a sports bra and short shorts and lay out to get some sun. after I woke from a short 20 minute nap and rolled over I found myself watching the clouds. A lot of them looked like dogs 🐶. I haven't done either in decades. And then I ran a few errands. I'm still getting used to people opening doors and asking me to go first when I'm out shopping. Oh, and I got new sandals. Now I can paint my toenails. Just not sure if I should paint them in the Helms flag pattern to match my fingers or something different.

Elizabeth,  make sure you use sunscreen.  Don't want to over  bake. 

 

Well all the opening stuff is done. So taking a break to see how my friends are.  Early shifts all week. Then open on Saturday. Well  still nothing from anybody yet. But  I am not desperate to leave. I know that I need to finally be the girl I so desperately need to be.  

 

Have a great day every one.

Good morning everyone! My Sunday was good I rode 27mi on my bicycle. I went and seen my parents again after I came out to them they say they support me with my decision. My mom said she will not use my name or pronouns yet until I’m out to the rest of my family. She seems to be pretty affected by my coming out but that’s to be expected. We did go swimming while I was there along with some family friends. No one said a word or even batted an eye when l wore my new swimsuit. It has polka dots lol. My wife called me crazy later because I had a tan line from my swimsuit and I was so excited. I was jumping up and down saying I have a women’s tan line lol.

Good morning Emily,

27 miles on the bike! Wow, that's great. As for your mom wanting to wait until you've invited the rest of the family into your trusted circle. That's cool, give your elder family members a chance to see the new you and interact with you around others so they come along slowly, not forcefully.

 

I'm like you and the tan lines, when I blow dry my hair. Thank you "Curley Girl" videos, my silver/white hair is so feminine and pretty, my wife just shakes head and smiles. She's coming along slowly too.

 

Hugs,

Good️Morning Everyone,

The coffee is still strong and black.

I'm at the dealership having my company truck serviced. Everyone here is respecting COVID-19 suggestions which is a good thing since I fall in the high risk description.

 

The weekend was good however very labor intensive, my Suzie and I replaced the floor in our small camper as we ready it for the 80th Sturgis Bike Rally in August.

 

Love and Hugs for Everyone,

It’s kind of funny how something that little that should be a nuisance can be so gratifying. It just made me feel like even more of a woman. Even though it’s painful now haha

A few years ago I had a  racer back tank top tan lines. It was  great. It happens when you take off your shirt for a walk in the woods.

May your coming out be as uneventful as mine was.

 

 

Hi Jackie! My coming out has been sort of following a wonderfully consistent and happy pattern. I was thinking that I was having some of the "Shawna magic" rubbing off....... but things potentially took a southward dive, depending on how events unfold. My heretofore smooth gender reveal may be ruined by my ex-wife outing me in a court room. It's a Perfect Storm of circumstances surrounding a support issue. When I have a little time in the next few days, I'll post details. Hopefully someone here can give me some sage advice.

I am so sorry that you have to deal with that Patti Anne. The only advice I would give is stay confident, cool, and collective and of course, dress somewhat conservatively. You want to appear to be the level headed one of the bunch. I know these are obvious to anyone going into court with an ex present but it never hurts mentioning it. I wish you the best with this and hope to hear about how it went.

 

Good Luck,

Susan R🌷

Shawna is magic? What did you have to rub? (Suggestive eyebrow wiggle.)

 

I'm not sure what the situation is out West, but I hope you get a sympathetic judge. The kind that says, "And?" when your wife starts outing you like it makes you some kind of monster. I've only heard bits and pieces but your ex... she sounds like a real piece of work. Good luck! Fingers crossed!

 

Hugs!

Hi Pattie Anne I hope everything goes in your favor with your ex.

 

Well last night was interesting I came out to my brother in law who I was scared to death to tell him. His reaction was “Oh”. I don’t really know how well it went time will Tell he thought I needed to get a second opinion. My sister was there and said she was very concerned about my wellbeing because she hasn’t seen me much happier but everytime I see her I had been presenting male and it pretty much ruins my mood anymore and between the anxiety of having her husband find out was getting to me. She said she doesn’t know what to tell people because several have been asking questions and she doesn’t feel comfortable telling them. I just hope my brother in law comes around and will accept me for me.

It's the same judge that decided the divorce settlement that ruined me financially. He was a new judge at the time and it was his first or second divorce case. I'd imagine that he'll shut her down after she or her new attorney spouts, but by then the damage will be done. But, anything to draw blood. I'll go into detail tonight.

Good morning going to be hot here, over 100!

 

PattiAnne, I can’t imagine what she thinks she would gain by outing you.  The judge shouldn’t care and it shouldn’t make a difference in any ruling.  The only thing she gets is trying to embarrass you, and it could even backfire by turning the judge against her.

 

don't let it get you all twisted up.  Just go with confidence.  Is Family court even open to the public?

 

good luck

 

Willow

      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!
