A good Friday morning to everyone. Have the next two days off. work Sat then another 2 days off. Plus my wife and youngest are going to Lincoln, Ne to visit my oldest.

 

So Fri-most of Sun I have for ME. Just trying to think of what to do. So, I need to go to the VA to get my yearly letter stating my disability %. For my DV license plates. I just may go to Ulta beauty and get some things. Does anyone know if they offer make up classes?

 

Well I went ahead and did the changes with work. I am moving forward.

@Shaysorry for your loss Hun. Loss a younger brother a year ago this month and know how hard it is to recover from a sibling loss you always thought would be there with you.

 

@Emily michellehope for a negative result on Saturday and a speedy recovery for you wife.

To everyone else, wear a mask, stay distanced and avoid crowds, wash your hands and use sanitizer.  We keep both liquid and sanitizing cloths in our cars and use them all the time.  And since I’m being an advertisement for health and safety, get a flu shot! Pneumonia and shingles too if you are old enough.

Agree this is best advice to everyone. :) 

Love to all.

@JoniSteph thank you for your kind words - loss of first sibling does bring mortality more in focus and reminds me to keep working towards unuifying my inside and outside to where it should be and complete the transition I started.

I am exempt from wearing a mask.Doctor wrote up a note I can't wear one for medical reasons,I go paranoid wearing one

Hi everyone just chilling out here in my room. I started watching the show transparent last night. I think it’s a good show so far. I’m bound a determined to teach myself how to wear a headband with out looking ridiculous lol. Have a good day everyone!

Transparent was a groundbreaker - that's for sure and not all trans people are beauty queens and muscle men... sadly enough - but it's good to see reality - The movie NORMAL with Tom Wilkerson is also very good.

I only watched it this year.  Haven't see it all, but it was better than I expected.

@KendraMLI know what that is like. I have COPD so lots of times I have to lower mask to breathe through my nose.

Feels like cheating :)

A change, I only have Thur and Friday  off. The the same for next week. The manager isn't taking as many day off. Oh, well.  Still have after work on Saturday. 

 

I got an email from HR conferming that the change was done in the computer system.  On weird thing she addressed me by Kymmie. But I  signed the email as Kymbrill.  She must have remembered from a previous email that I sent.  Cool.

 

Hugs

Awesome! Congratulations! Kudos! Promotions all around!

 

In all seriousness, these little victories always seem to matter the most to me. Little moments like that are what you always remember.

 

Hugs!

I am starting to enjoy it,the used car dealer I bought it from treated me very good.Has the 5.7 hemi in it.I don't buy the vehicle on the spot,a trip to my mechanic for an inspection is first.I want to know if it is a good car or not,my mechanic charges me nothing for the inspection

Link to post

Kendra, congrats on the new car!  

 

Every time I take my car in for service, I am haunted by the thought that this time the service advisor is going to tell some really bad news.  My car is thirteen years old and has 233,000 miles.   Somehow though it keeps chugging along as if it were a virtually new car.  

 

I have to confess I have no idea what a Dodge Charger looks like.  There was a time a lifetime ago when I knew pretty much every car model.  My interest in cars has faded with age.   Hopefully it will prove utterly reliable.  

 

All the best,

 

Katy

I wonder if I was the cause for the gender identity to be added as a discrimination in the companies policies? Because it was just after I had emailed the girl at HR. When I noticed it.

@KymmieLI had a similar experience. Two weeks after the company OK'd and updated my info they issued information for everyone to take a course on sexual harassment and discrimination. Apparently my state has recently made it a requirement for everyone, for employment but I didn't know that so I was like OGM this is my fault.

Link to post

@KymmieL @ElizabethStar that’s interesting that both of your employers made sure employees were given information on sexual harassment.  more employers and states should act accordingly.

I think that was good both of your employers updated their policies. I honesty don’t know what my employer would do about that. I’m afraid I would still face constant ridicule regardless. My past employers would not have done anything to  their policies.

Today I’ve managed to make 6 months on hrt. I’m so happy. Its hard to believe how far I’ve come. I would have never thought I’d make it this far. I have my moments but I’m in a much better state than I was before. The changes are great I actually have boobs now and I have to wear a bra when I go out. It’s funny I used to be so happy to wear a bra now sometimes I can’t wait to take it off. My skin is much softer now even though it is much easier irritate. I actually just noticed my face is beginning to look rounder. I smiled the other day when I looked in the mirror and actually saw Emily. I’m excited to see what the next 6 months bring.

      I will not be medically transitioning, because the physical risks aren't worth it for me vs. my dysphoria. Transitioning is a spectrum, there's passing in public, changing pronouns but not appearance, and medically transitioning... I think sometimes there's a tendency not to be certain about where the stopping point is. Instead of saying "never", people might say, "it'd be nice if someday... so I'm not sure yet."  It's true that sometimes it makes some aspects of dysphoria worse.   Also, there's a stigma which I really hope goes away soon, but there's this toxicity about not being "trans enough" and sometimes people have valid fears about facing that stigma, and so stay quiet about not transitioning. Everyone here on this forum has been very non-judgmental about that though, so it's more of an overall thing, not something I've experienced so far in this community. If you want to speak out about not transitioning, if it helps you to feel more validated to talk about it, then every time you speak up, you might be helping to validate the experience of someone who's reading quietly on the sidelines. I think it's especially vital that kids who identify as trans understand that there are any number of paths they could take.

      Hi,   speaking of Thanksgiving dinner, my wife and I will definitely be alone.  I bought a turkey breast, I’m making acorn squash and stuffing.  My wife will roast the turkey, make asparagus and she already made cranberry sauce..   I’ll probably make waffles for breakfast but we’ll have to see about that.   if you are driving, be safe .   happy thanksgiving   Willow

      Here is the run down, at least in my experience: - dick jokes - making fun of their friends - messing with the weaker ones, but in a jokey way - the occasional deep conversation with some reassurance, you can count on your boys for anything - cars and stupid stuff they do - dick jokes again   Basically, guys are typically rude, disrespectful, and like joking around. But deep down, the person that you make fun of the most, the one who makes fun of you the most, is the kind of guy that would help you hide the body. Loyal to a fault, and always willing to call you on your crap. At least, the good kind of guys. Avoid anyone who seems to like pretending that he likes people just so he can be popular, they are corrupted.

      I’m surprised there’s not another group there labeled as being for members who “can’t transition” which would probably be a small subset of the “not transitioning” group. I know two people in this “can’t transition” category and originally they were planning on medically transitioning but for serious health reasons and their age, they can’t.   The interesting thing about these two ‘non-transitioning’ trans individuals is that their wives are more active within the community than they are themselves. My wife and I, for instance, correspond much more often with the significant other regarding their trans spouse’s trials and tribulations than from them themselves. In both cases, thy’ve reached a point where they can only express themselves privately. One friend, however, does go to trans related events out of their residential area...or used to pre-covid.   They definitely exist. I haven’t talked to one of them in several months and I think they may have just accepted the fact that transitioning was not in the cards for them.   It’s very possible that some non-transitioning members have found a place where they no longer feel a strong need or desire to discuss it further or focus on it as much. There have been several trans individuals here and on other forums that have made a personal choice not to transition for the good of a relationship or work or life situation. It is possible a few have felt hearing about others moving forward in their journey makes their decision more difficult. Everyone has their reasons and all are equally valid.   Susan R🌷

      Hi Red? Lauren? Red_Lauren?   I think my GT is helping me figure out ideas and actions that will help me move toward becoming more authentically the person I want to be, and comfortable with her. So far, it feels very genuine to me. Eg, Helping me identify and actually think about the stuff I usually just ice over and mush on. I don't think it will be a circular self-fulfilling prophecy, as in "I went to counseling to find out I need to go to counseling." That was my question at first, but so far, so good.   I think there is an app. on this site with GT referrals by locale. If not here, there are some on Google.   I'm not advocating that you seek gender therapist counseling. Whatever works, works. The VA offers me this service as part of LGBTQ Vets medical coverage. If it were out of pocket, I couldn't afford it, but then I'm trying to live on Social Security. I can't afford anything anyway....[I do see great deals on bras on ebay, however.]   ~~With a hug, from Lee~~

      Hi Ivy. Heh, heh,  I'm afraid I won't be much help here since I've never really figured that out myself. I think you just have to be yourself.  But, guys are weird.

      Typed words alone cannot convey how happy I am to find that there are others in the world not so unlike myself - a circumstance that is relatively new to me.

      Lying to people hurts them. Lying to yourself hurts you. I hurt myself for forty-eight years before I realized that maybe I should do something about that. After I stopped lying to myself, it was killing me to lie to my wife. My therapist told me to wait. That lasted about a week.   The point I'm getting at is you should tell this girl up front what's going on. You can't build a relationship on a foundation of lies. She might be more receptive than you expect.   Hugs!
