May the poor girl rest in peace. I had a 97 with low miles also. It sat in a garage for 3 years.  Gave it to my stepdaughter, She's still driving it.

Sorry girls, I still love cars.

Hey there @Bobbie Scott,

 

I've said this to @jae bear on several occasions. Girls can be MOTOR HEADS, Race Team Leaders, and even Girly Girls can be Motor Heads.

 

Have you hugged an engine today?

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Liquid motivation came in cold form today. (Mt Dew) a little nervous today because I’m heading with the family down to Illinois to surprise both of the boys grandpas for their birthday. This will be the first time I’ve fully presented to any family.

@KymmieL Sorry to hear about your wheels. Hopefully the salvage is good.

 

@JustineM Good luck, hope it goes well.

 

Got my hair done last week, first time with a traditionally fem style. Went with a chin length bob, that really works with my natural curls. What an awesome and amazingly affirming experience it was. My stylist was so chill and she took great of me. Can't wait until my next appointment already.

 

For me, work has no updated my contact details in all systems except payroll. My name change is off to the government. Probably a little more than a month before I hear back and can get my new birth certificate and name change form and complete the updates at work. With my contact details changed in most systems, word is starting to spread around a little faster. Still nothing but support from those who have reached out and those I have interacted with.

Trying to book an appointment for tomorrow to get my ear lobes pierced. Did some online retail therapy earlier in the week, now waiting for the first installments to my fall wardrobe to arrive.

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful day, stay safe! Hugs!

Is it weird that I pictured that as a Scooby-Doo style reveal? You rip the rubber mask off and, "Ah ha! It was Justine all along and she would have gotten away with it too if not for you meddling kids!"

 

Either way, best of luck. May you find only acceptance and love!

 

Hugs!

Yes, I used to race against some fierce women, many of whom knew their cars inside out.

wow, I knew my rabbit ears were burning! Yes indeed, I know plenty of women, both CIS gender and trans that love cars, motorcycles, mechanical things in general and are just gearheads galore! Nothing like the site of a Chrysler 400 in.³ block on your engine  stand stuffed with a forged 440 crank turned down to fit the mains with flat top Keith black pistons decked .005” below the top ready to stuff into your 1969 Dodge Charger... that’s 451 in.³ for all those boys out there who didn’t  know how to do the math! I love baffling them with that combo as they’ve never quite heard of it before...  But I usually get a marriage proposal right after baffling them!

The funny thing is I used to love anything that was loud fast and had wheels or tracks. Now I can’t even stand them but, then doing it 7 days a week burns you out. Half of the time it’s not the piece of equipment it is the operator or the driver that I can’t stand especially when you hear that costs money and can you have it fixed in 5 minutes lol. Oh well such is life haha

Doing anything for a long time and we get subject to burn out.  Look at it this way, those bad operators provided work for you which you used to live and support yourself.

@KymmieL good luck!

 

thanks for the kind words. Actually big changes are under way for me. Interviewed for a new position in an ICU in Raleigh NC. They offered, so looks like end of November I’ll be moving. Now just to find people to pack 90% of my house!

Oh my goddess! This went so well! My biological family have all said I look so much happier. They even gave me a new real hair wig! Flying on cloud 9 3/4 right now.  Thank you ladies for all the kind words.

Even though I am a girl now, I'm not giving up my bike or my hot rods. I've been a motorhead for two long.

Why would you? Biker chicks... girl mechanics... just wow. Always been attracted to both groups.

 

If you look up "My Metal Family" on YouTube... watch the intro. I would have reacted exactly the same way.

Omergerd ... Jackie I love Mopar.

This made my morning thank you.

We didn't get any big block cars here so we had to make do with LAs, still a 318 done right makes 330hp 😉

I'm still wondering how or if my car friends will accept my changes.

Though I'm coming to the realisation that it shouldn't matter. I'll be me and that will be that.

Hugs

      There's the Pride Center of NJ not too far away. I know they hosted support groups pre-pandemic, but I've always been hesitant to go. I know pass as cis/het and very much give off that vibe. It's served me well as protection against additional discrimination in my life, but I worry that I won't be welcomed into LGBTQIA+ spaces because they'll see me as just another straight ciswoman invading their safe space. I realize that they're probably doing virtual meetings with the pandemic, but that's difficult with my husband being home all the time. Our apartment is on the smaller side and we're usually always together even when he's working. I'd rather not have him know what's going on. He's had some ongoing health problems and he finally has a doctor that will listen to him. It's been very stressful and things are possibly worse than we thought. I really do not want to add to his worry or stress right now.

      Hi Suzy!  nice to meet you, and Welcome! I don't like labels either.  I lived my whole life confined to being AMAB .. and so I hesitate to conform to only one new label.  I even had a hard time deciding what to "label" myself as for this Forum profile, but I settled (as it appears you have) on Transfeminine.  Seemed closest. My 3d gender therapy sessions (just a few months ago) I fully came to terms with myself, and the biggest discovery was not the "label" but Self-Acceptance.  I know who I am now (the what I am is not as important). Happy you found yourself Here, Suzy❣️  This Forum IS a Community of unique humans, but on similar journeys.  Hope you feel you can share more, and also gain something from the experiences of others.   Deep breaths ... one step at a time  
    • KayC
      Hi Ellie!  nice to meet you, and Welcome!  Yep!  You found the "Secret".  I am certain cis-gender humans have no clue about our feelings, and why would they?  I think this is the first step from going from "Questioning" to self-acceptance and affirmation of your true gender identity. Gender therapy was the next step for me, something recommended by the experience of many on this Forum, and that I can attest to as essential in my personal growth and confidence I am on the right path. I am sure you are still getting settled in.  I hope you can find something in your area, and specially a Community you can connect with.  In the meantime, this is a great place to share, and learn from the experiences of others.   Deep breaths ... one step at a time

      Hi Audrey!  Nice to meet you, and Welcome!  YES!  me too!  I had been crossdressing (at home) and Questioning for several years, and the only good thing to come out of Covid for me was the down time to finally explore my feelings ... Fortunately (after many Google attempts) I found this wonderful Forum which jump-started my journey, got me to seek and start gender therapy ... and allowed me the confidence to accept myself as I truly am. I have other obstacles (work, relationship) that will limit how fast I can go, but the goal is clear now.  Hope to hear more from you and I hope you have the same experience here on the Forum I have had with all these wonderful human beings❣️ Deep breaths ... one step at a time

      Hi Kiara.  For me, going through different levels of dysphoria, questioning, and doubts has been something I have come to understand as just part of the journey.  A painful part, but we have to start somewhere. I cannot and should not give you any specific advice, because its impossible for me to know the intimate details of your life and situation. But, even if you previously had bad therapy experiences, maybe it was just the wrong time in your life and/or the wrong therapists. I just know how much therapy has helped me.  It cannot "solve" all my issues, but it definitely helps me deal with them in a more positive, productive way... and in the process I have learned a LOT more about myself that has little to do with my gender identity.  A good therapist can do that for you. Also, do you have any connections to LGBTQIA+ in your area?  I am sure that would be a great help to be able to connect with others. In the meantime, we are all here on the Forum as a Community to support each other.  So, I am happy you have a secure place to share your feelings.  Wishing you the best❣️

      Pepsi and green tea, breakfast of champions. I am engaging my brain with some Stellaris. The doggos are happy to see me.   @KymmieL Your patience is inspiring. Waiting out a rough situation until an ideal time takes grace. I know it's not easy, so good on you.   @Heather Nicole Bob Evans is delicious! I actually interviewed at their main restaurant a few months back. No dice, though.   I'm still going about seeking a proper gender therapist, but so far my mom has been my biggest supporter. I'm not sure if she quite understands, but she is unequivocally in my corner no matter what I decide. (Lucky for me, she's also a natural on the sewing machine, and is even willing to fix a strap on one of my dresses. Big shoulders. Oops. 🙄)

      Oooh, yeah! Just recently, I was getting my car's regular eCheck. My hair is just past shoulder-length and I have brand-new still-healing cubic zircon studs in my earlobes, but, aside from that, I was totally still in my usual public "guy mode" when I stopped into the local eCheck just after getting out of work.   Facemask, sure. Will Riker beard and stubble just under and around that, check. Clothes and everything, basic generic "guy" stuff. My voice (according to "Voice Pitch Analyzer") right at the bottom of the "male" range (drat ). Stature, 6 foot. But the older guy who was working there that day...there were a couple points where I could've sworn he nonchalantly, and respectfully, referred to me as "ma'am". And I never detected the slightest hint of contempt or sarcasm. It was just, a very below-the-radar, super-subtle, easily-overlooked "ma'am". Wasn't even sure he was saying "ma'am" instead of "man" (although the "man" colloquialism did seem a bit modern for him).   I still find myself puzzling over that one, but I do know I certainly didn't have any objection to being "ma'am"'d. I just found it odd and happy in a "just how badly does he need glasses?" kind of a way

      We live in a small area. So its not really surprising. The first time I saw her in march. She asked why I wanted a leg wax, and this was before I came out fully. I told her I was a cd, and she said that's ok. I have a friend who dose it also.    As we have gotten to know eachother over the last seven or so months. She definitely has gotten more comfortable with me, and judging by were she waxes now. Compared to at first. She's gotten a lot more comfortable around my binkni area, and she suggested underarm waxing a few months ago. Then in October. She suggested a back wax, and I told her in the summer. As its colder, and I won't be showing more skin till then.    She really started treating me like a woman in September. When I showed up as fem as I could get, and loved what I was wearing, and complements me every time since.    As for her friend. I have no doubts on she's real. She has talked about her from time to time, and on her Instagram page. She has a picture I believe of her all glamed up.  At first the picture didn't catch my eye. Till i viewed it later, and could tell wasn't a cis woman. She looks good, but had a few things that stood out.    Then as we were wrapping things up the other day. She mentioned shes been talking to "Nichole" about me. I asked who's that, and she said her friend. Then kind went in to more details on how they met, and she wants us to meet some time. I told her to pass my number on to her.

      Great resources @VickySGV. This first book mentioned sounds like an especially good read.   Initial reactions can change over time but it sounds like she’s genuinely interested in the topic. I’m a little surprised given her profession she hasn’t met more in our community. It’s optimistic that she has a ‘friend’ who crossdresses though....there’s a good chance she will be an ally. Looks like you have a new place to share experiences regarding your journey every now and again.   Susan R🌷

      Hello @BreM, It’s a pleasure to meet you...welcome! I wish everyone that found this site had this kind of support in place even though you had a rocky start. I feel for you and can relate to not having support early when you were younger and had little understanding of what was wrong. It was a different time back then but this does not excuse the lack of support from your birth parents. I’m glad you’re now flourishing in your new life and family. I think you’ll do great things with allies like that in your corner. I look forward reading more about your continuing journey and learning more about who you are.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷
