That pastry looks delicious!

Well, this morning has been great! I just received a scholarship that I didn't know that I had gotten. It came when my bank account is at its lowest, which is better. 😁😎

Finally sunny after a couple of rainy days.  We're going to head over to the Portsmouth Pride festival today to see whats happening there.  I understand there will be a number of food tents in addition to the vendors.  With all the great restaurants in town there is guaranteed to be something good to eat!   Enjoy your Saturday!

Seasons? They're all backwards now. We'll see what happens but ny guess is it wont be good. Anyway, having a cup of coffee now, extra strong and black, no sugar. The only way to have coffee (opinion of course) I'm enjoying catching up on my reading here. Hope everyone has a great evening....

Haha, so true! The weather people joke about our weather like that they usually spend more time reporting other weather around the nation.

We are having a perfect early summer morning here.  Now it's 60 under sunny skies with a forecast high of 83 with low humidity.......lovely!  The last of our doe kids are off this morning to start a new herd which lowers my workload and insures the capital for this years expenses.  That alone is a positive for farming.

Drinking my second cuppa.  I am a grateful person this morning!

 

Hugs,

It’s very strange weather here for this time of year. Today it’s raining and 67. That’s very much on the cool side of things. Not that I’m complaining but it’s strange.

Early Good Morning , sitting here , Tea in Hand, and the movie "Clue" is on in the background. I have not watched this classic in quite a while. A lot of great actors in this movie. Good to see them again.

Eating my oatmeal and blueberries with my first cup.  Have to remember the pills that keep my blood thin enough to bounce over the road blocks around my heart.  Years of smoking and drinking took a toll.  We've got the grandkids this week until camp begins.  Later i'll pick blueberries if the rain stops.  It is a good life and a cup of coffee only makes it better.

 

Hugs,

Just finished my breakfast bowl of frosties (mixed with added seeds and malt) plus usual coffee. I will visit my mother later but looking out it is still dismal. It talks of a heatwave for the weekend and in Euope they are making preparations for extreme heat.

Good morning all. Awake and no coffee at my friends house. I will have to wait until I get home later. The June gloom is alive and well in the East County, and the birds are being extra quiet. Over here, the Crows, or parrots are usually squawking a little bit by now. I don’t even hear any morning doves yet. It’s weird staying at a place that is so quiet, cause I’m used to having some noise going on. Sure the occasional car drives by this early, but that’s nothing. 

By now the airport is usually welcoming in the huge shipping airlines like FedEx, DHL, Amazon, and UPS. The freeway is beginning to hum a bit, and the crows are squawking. I actually like that type of noise. It doesn’t bother me. I have insomnia, and wake up early anyway, so noise doesn’t make much of a difference. I don’t take sleeping pills or NyQuil, cause I just wake up anyway. I always wake up at 4am ish. Always, it is extremely rare to sleep the whole night. I have to be completely exhausted  to be able to sleep through the entire night. Oh well. I hope everyone else sleep well !

      The Answer depends on the individual. For some people. their bodies might respond quickly, others not for years. I am 53 and have been on HRT for a little over 4 months and counting. I had an Orchiectomy a little over a month ago, and I am T free. I feel that My hips are starting to show, but not to anyone else. I can see slow breast growth happening , but only one comment about "have i been working out?" But thats Me, you and everyone else will probably have a different response. Speak with a Gender Therapist and your Doctor (that is fluent with the LGBTQ community), so they can help you with your journey. Continue researching until You are comfortable with your decisions. If you decide to start HRT, and do not like the way you look and or feel, then talk to your doctor, or stop all together.  Since you have a "year or two," you have plenty of time to do your research and talk to the GD therapist and your Doctor.  Best of luck in  your Journey!

      Facial hair is no longer my “beard”- pun intended as I’ve had laser hair removal. I guess my main question from here is the question of when the curves:fat redistribution and breasts became harder to hide. I do eventually want to live full time. I just won’t be ready to make that leap for another year or two though.

      Thank you all so much for the warm welcome!   I'm really looking forward to dive in! Just need to sort out my thoughts into words first. I find myself wanting to write something only to end up in a haze of abstract thoughts unsure of how to translate it into language.  I struggle a lot to articulate myself, so it's nice to be in a safe space like this to try and express myself and get input from other transgender peers.   Thank you! ❤️
    • Charlize
      It is most likely possible to be on HRT for a long time without being noticed.  Remember we have many FTM members here who pass by binding etc.   Remember baldness and a bit of beard screams male.  I would think a greater issue might be whether, after starting HRT, the desire to live as yourself wouldn't grow.   I know that when i was on HRT i had no desire to be seen as male but i suppose it is possible to be in the middle ground.  Don't forget that HRT also can affect sexual abilities, fertility and preferences for some.     Hugs,   Charlize

      NS,   You could try looking at the following:   https://www.behindthename.com/top/lists/united-states/1980   Enter your birth year in the drop-down field, and then look through the top 1000 names that were most frequently used at the time (you can also sort the list alphabetically). If you have siblings, you could also use that as clues to what your parents might have used.   For example, my birth year was 1960, and my sister's name is Melissa. Taking that and clues of other family members led me to select 'Melanie' as a logical given name (ranked #125 on the list from the above site, and 'M-E-L' the clue from my sister). I then selected my mother's middle name 'Jean' for mine, thus I became Melanie Jean, which IMHO has a nice ring about it (it also happened to leave my initials intact, as my friends usually call me 'MJ').   Best wishes on whichever you decide. 🙂

      I have been married for 44 years so I can attest to thinking at times that you're on the same wavelength when in fact you're are not.  Life and people are strange in that regard.   I think it may be time to have some serious dialogue about how he (and you) felt things have been going.     Also, in my opinion women are more prone to accept this change in a partner than men are.  Women can be close friends with each other without seeming sexual, while men never want to get too close so to not project the image of homosexuality.      
    • VickySGV
      By themselves you have a window of 3 to 6 months for the onset of action to 3 to 6 years to completion of the change per the WPATH Standards of Care.  It will also depend on the type of dressing you do at work.  Shirts and neck ties will be a problem a bit sooner, but T shirts and sweat shirts a lot longer.  A bigger issue is going to be our own nervousness and maybe a tad touchy PMS type day that will give you away.  Yes we do get mood swings pretty early in the game.  If you get in a hurry for longer hair , there goes another issue too.  Its not as bad as it was, but where I worked it could be anything from OK to physically dangerous is it was not kept right.  When I retired I had been on HRT for two years and it had not been a problem.  I have what I call family "B" cups since that is what my mother and sisters had, and loose shirts got along fine in two sizes larger than male me wore.

      I know this is one of those mileage  varies questions- However, I cant help but ask- How long on HRT( assume( Sprio and Estrogen) before dressing in the old male attire and presenting male becomes a challenge? How long was it in your experience? I’m trying to get a good sense of when coworkers or other acquaintances might start noticing something being up.   Thanks in advance for the insight,   Dina
