Thanks Kymmie! Definitely talk to your doc. There were times I could breathe not too badly through my nose, but way more times I could not.

Well hopefully solved the battery drain in my wagon.

I hate troubleshooting electrical issues in vehicles. I had a pickup that would all kinds of weird issues when it rained. Took forever to find out that is the poor job the previous owner did/had done when tying in the trailer harness into the trucks electrical system. If the water got in, it started shorting things at random.

I am getting to that point. that I need to get on with my life.

I fully get that. I am at that point my wife now, also in coming out to whole world. I have really started moving forward with things, without waiting for my wife's "approval". I've worn a couple of cute tops out in public, they were femme leaning andro, but way more colourful than most males would wear. I've come out to many more people and told my parents they could start telling any friends or other family as they wanted. Hugs!

I am also guilty of this. Sorry, not sorry. If  I didn't  I would still be waiting.

 

I had a session with my regular therapist tonight. Turns out he can diagnose , perform evaluations and write referrals for the treatment of gender dysphoria. I've been seeing him for almost a year, it just never came up. I'm pretty excited we're going to start next week on changing my current diagnosis to GD. Now I just have to break up with the GT I started seeing last weekend.

That is super great news. I am excited for you. I am waiting for news therapist to get my referral letter and want to see if my old psych will also help me. Congrats.

Awesome news @ElizabethStar!

 

So my day started a little down but then I get to my clinic to open up for the day and find a note saying "Follow the Balloons Bri". SO there's a trail of balloons throughout the whole clinic leading to the back break room which is completely decorated with streamers, balloons and other party decor and a big banner saying "Welcome Bri" and a tiara sitting under it and a couple of balloons with "It's a girl" on them.   My staff threw a Gender Reveal Party for me! (insert crying mess here). I truly do have the best people around me.  What a way to start my day.

@KymmieL I hope it doesn’t come to leaving your son and wife behind, but If  I recall they teamed up Against you some time back so I understand your concerns.  My wife tries to accept me but can only take so much. She is slowly getting better.  Still hoping the Portland job will come through for you.

 

@Bri2020 so happy for you.

Good Morning everyone. With some work it looks like I will be able to leave on our trip later today. Got some good advice from my therapist yesterday. Hopefully doesn't come to that.

Looks like we are riding into some nice weather. while I won't have my laptop on the trip. Will be able to keep in touch with TP on my phone.

Good morning 

 

Kymmie, be safe on your ride and I hope everything goes ok with your son.

 

So I had my group meeting via zoom last night.  I do find it’s helpful to have others to talk to and get others ideas.  
 

i wore a blouse and pants we had bought for my wife, but it didn’t fit her.  Unfortunately I tend to inherit things that don’t fit her right.  Even on me it was a little tight.  I asked if she thought the top looked ok.  Her suggestion was to take out my breast forms so my breasts wouldn’t be as big.  I took her advice it did look better but she looks at me and asks if my breasts were growing?  My bra was molded cups so it didn’t make a lot of difference so I showed her.  She looks at me and decided she didn’t see breast growth. (I know she is sensitive to that). When ever she questions that, I get out the taylors tape and measure around my breasts.  Low and behold I now have a full inch more!  Good for me, not for her.

 

enjoy your weekend.

 

hugs

Coffee is long gone but emotional upswing is going strong ? Had one of the best Fridays. It all started with a visit to DMV. I finally found time to update my license with my new name. When they saw the name I was changing to, the tone of voice and attitude switched from candlelight to electric bulb ? I was getting "sweetie"and  "honey" constantly, and actually had nice chat about random things. Right after, I stopped at the bank to update account and card and the lady there was also much more chatty when she saw my name. And on top of it, when she called other department she was referring about me using "she" which was completely unexpected but so heartwarming. ?

Now, where else can I go and update my name? Teehehehehe

 

? To the great weekend.

Congratulations on getting your license updated!  Isn't it nice when you can feel the good vibes from total strangers?

 

I think a lot of people go out of their way to be nice to trans people.  It's hard to be stealth when you are updating your name in their records, so it's not like they don't know.  They are just nice people.  It is so heart-warming to experience it, and to hear you describing it.

 

Thank you for posting about it.  You made my day. :D

@RunValRun I can almost see the smile on your face and joy in your heart. Congrats.

Thank you for kind words ? It is absolutely wonderful to use the new name and hear it back.

While I was using it at work to get people accustomed for the last few months, it has more satisfying ring to it when it's supported by official paperwork ?

you bet - I love the sound of my new name but only you ladies and my medical teams use it yet -

Yes, it is nice to be called by your new name instead of a dead name.  I get called Willow at group by everyone which is nice.  by some close friends that know Willow and by my wife occasionally but that usually a little snarky since she doesn't like Willow.  Doctors will call me by that name if I am appropriately dressed and not when I'm not.  

 

Spent most of the day at the beach.  It was a nice day.
