Good morning All. Coffees on.

Recommended Posts

Good morning, starting on my 2nd cup of coffee, while watching the TV Show "Bones." Its a comfortable &2 degrees outside, with a slight breeze. The train sounded off somewhere near Pacific Highway , and a plane just flew by on the way to Lindbergh Field. The crows have left the area, probably looking for breakfast somewhere.

Afternoon all, Just got home from my quick trip to MI. We actually made it quick ourselves. With the heat we decided to come home. We went to the long way home. Went through the UP. down the green bay over to Appleton then through Lacross stopped in Lincoln again with our oldest. Left this morning just before 7 and arrived home a little after one.

 

Actually got correct gendered last Thursday. We left my sons in Lincoln early. (Before getting trapped by our grandson) After putting up with nightmare traffic in Chicago. We knew it was going to be late getting in to the wife's fathers. So we stopped at a Baymont Hotel in Portage, MI. It was still early enough to hit the pool. So we changed into our swim suits. Me in my one piece with matching shorts. and a t-shirt.

We got in the pool, there was a couple young girls 9-11. They where wanting to race. Ones mom said, You two stay on this side let these ladies have the other side. 😊 one of the girls corrected her. She apologized a few times saying with the hair(long) and looked like I had boobs. 😁 😁. I didn't say a thing, I winked at my wife. It felt good.

Didn't sleep at all last night, new meds (Argh).  At sunrise made coffee and had a small breakfast, read some news and laid down to give it a try.  I was able to catch a couple hours so I'm refreshed (like a daisy, Ha).  Off to run errands soon.

Good morning! About to start my second cup o coffee. It is a comfortable 70 degrees blue sky, for now. I’m in the east county, so the temperature will climb up to 93 degrees later in the day. But I will not be here when it reaches 93, I will be at my place where it will be around 84 later in the day. At that point I will probably head back here and crank the A/C, 😂

Im hanging out here a bit longer ,because I have an Amazon Fire Stick being shipped here, and it  is out for delivery. I had some tea and thongs arrive yesterday, one day delivery, I love that about amazon! I love the tea and thongs, but the peppermint tea is a bit pepperminty, so I think I will get the Spearmint tea next time. The thongs feel great, and I like the color assortment . Even tho I got a pack of 10, great price on amazon, I am already planning to buy more that I had been wanting to buy a while ago. I wanted to see how my thongs fit after everything settled down after my Orchie. I will be waiting for my cup size to increase before I buy a new bra, for now my nipples and buds are taking shape, but my breast size hasn’t increased  enough for me to buy a new bra yet. I’m ok with that since there’s is activity, and every little bit counts! 😊

Evening all. just got home from my first Sunday close in forever it seems. Had dinner and now playing on here.

I have noticed that I am loosing weight. Lately I have worn a bra daily. Just being the girl I am. On Fri I wore one that I picked up a few years ago. It has always been tight on my until I wore it Friday. It fit comfortable. I have noticed that some previously tight cloths fitting better. Yeah.

Good morning.  Working my first cup and eating my oatmeal and blueberries.  it's a bit cooler here today.  Yesterday we got an early start working with the goat herd.  It got pretty hot by the time when we were done.  Today i'm hoping to either take down a couple of dead ash trees for firewood and or get the next load of hay in the barn.  Living on this farm keeps this gal busy.  Now for another cup

 

Hugs,

Just had my breakfast, usual cereals (with added seeds and spices) and coffee. It is a bit fresher here now than it was at the weekend. It hasn't been the heat that has been the issue though. A bit of a plague of flies on Sunday. That's the problem of heat and humidity in a place so green as it is at the moment. I can usually keep pace with the house so fresh and clean that they are not attracted in but sometimes!!! As the sun is out I will go out and get some exercise.

Living on a farm with livestock we are not strangers to flies but screens and a well used flyswatter keeps the buzz at bay.  The occasional posker does bug us until my wife's service dog catches the bit of flying protein.  

I'm off today to bring home a couple of does to replace some we are culling this weekend.  Next weekend is the Eid El Adha.  That is a Muslim holliday celebrating Abraham's sacrifice of Issac.  Some of our animals will be sacrificed on the farm.  It is a sad time in some ways.  We are vegetarians but others do eat meat and these animals are treated with respect and kindness throughout their lives which is unfortunately not common with most meat animals.

Need a second cuppa.

Good morning, afternoon and evening! On my second cup, and watching NYPD Blue. Used the weed wacker mowed and used the leaf blower early this morning before the plumber came over to look at one of the shower drains. Plus i was trying to beat the heat 🌞🔥. After the plumber I took the Mazda to Discount tire to have the air pressure checked, they do it for free, all low, ooops. Then I drove back and forth three times to a local car wash to make all the cars shiny. Then finally breakfast. The best part about breakfast, is that’s when I take my Lady Meds. It is a guava year to put me in a great mood no matter how busy I get or hot it might be outside.

Good Morning all!  On my second cup of coffee, but need to jump in the shower, to go visit my mom who was moved from the hospital to a rehab facility.  Last week, she had fallen, and couldn't get up.  The hospital stabilized her fluids and got her on stuff to deal with an infection.    She will probably only be in rehab for a few days, before they send her home, and her house is in terrible shape.   

On Monday, I flew up to Massachusetts, to help out and get her house ready for her to go home, and hopefully get the process started for her moving into a retirement community.  

Sorry for the rambling post, but a lot going on in my head right now.

Sorry to hear about your mom, but good to hear she is progressing well. My mom had the same thing happen to her several years ago. And again several months ago. She does need to think about a retirement home as well. I hope all goes well with you and your mom.

Sorry to hear about your Mom Laura.  I was fortunate to be able to be with both my parents until they died.  They lived in the house i grew up in and we had built a house nearby on the farm. Even so helping Dad get from the hospital to home was difficult but at the same time the time was rewarding as i look back now.

Hopefully everything will go smoothly for you.

 

Hugs,

      Just one thing to think about which I have found with leggings Kay . I am UK size so won't quote actual sizes because of the difference but I found that I needed one size larger than my optimum waist size because of the size of my calf muscles.   Tracy

      That was going to be my next thought.   It's pretty difficult to figure out (for me) where to tweak the colours for some of the boxes on the right hand side backgrounds. I was kinda hoping that the Firefox Dark Mode option would resolve most issues.   Ah well, back to the drawing board. 😪
    • Susan R
      To some degree this probably happens to many of us transitioning with and without spouses although I never heard it referred to as a ‘pink fog‘ stage. Obviously, before coming out fully about wanting to transition to female to my wife the topic just was never brought up. Shortly after coming out though, we seemed to talk about nothing else. So much so that we talked about a [future] time when transition, gender, and all of the issues it creates would not be a part of our regular discussion throughout the day. I’m really not sure that will ever happen. Now that we have become quite accustomed to our life as two married women, we no longer worry about it like we once did.  My wife and I find enjoyment with several support groups where gender issues are the main focus. Plus, we are both involved of online trans communities that we really enjoy. It hasn’t got to a point where a ‘pink fog’ has detrimentally affected our lives. If it ever starts to interfere with our life together, I’m sure we would make some changes in our day to day although I’m not sure what those changes would entail.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      Thank you Kay!  My wife and I have been married over 30 years, and more than half of those she has known about, and supported me.  Last year I came out to her fully that there is more to this. i have mentioned to her that I want to go to therapy, but she insists that it don’t need it.  In one of our discussions she mentioned “MTF runs in the family “ (I have a cousin that transitioned many years ago), it may be that she is worried that I will end up going to a therapist and starting the transition that day? When it comes to money, she controls it, and I have learned that I need to ask before spending it or risk her anger. Kay, please let me know how things go with you and your wife and your approach for therapy.  I too don’t want to go behind my wife’s back, but I know that I need therapy.   Thank you Kay ❤️   Janae

      Youre on the right  way  and thats  great  . Just take  this  ONE day at a  time  and dont try to rusch things in the hope things will get better faster.  And whatever you do DONT for one second  think that suicide is  the right  way to go as its NOT TRUST me on this.      And above  all  if you feel bad again DONT be afraid to come back here  and  also seek  help and support from the profetinals if needed  youre NOT alone  Rosalina

      @michelle_kitten Great response and some great advice!! ...I especially like the parts in bold in your well thought out post.
    • KayC
      Wow!  this hits so close to home, its almost as I had written it myself.  Going on 2 years now since coming out to my wife (only), but not really being able to talk about it because it always gets uncomfortable.  I can dress at home (mostly in private) but similar "boundaries" about  going out or going farther .. not really sure I am ready for that yet anyway so its not a big issue so far. I received a similar threat of "leaving" if I transition, but recently she denied she ever said that (I didn't forget), so maybe that is a hopeful sign. I recently made a determination that I need to open the communication again.  Big reason is I want to start therapy, and I don't want to do it behind her back.  I am hoping she doesn't see it as a threat but an opportunity for me to get my arms around my gender identity.  Hopefully it will include her at some point too .. and I feel unless we understand and support each other, it will be difficult to continue without one or both of us being unhappy in this relationship. Thank you Janae for posting this .. I too feel I am fortunate to have found this forum. Wishing you all the best in your journey  
    • Carolyn Marie
      I'm really glad you're feeling less down these days, Rosalina.  It's rarely an easy thing to transition, what with roadblocks and family issues and self confidence issues and everything else.  Just take it one day at a time, and every day that you can stand tall is a good day.  And every day when things look bleak, don't stop trying for better, and know that you can come here and find solace with friends who understand.  Take care.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I missed my morning cup cuz spent the whole night up and spent most the day trying to rest with the neighbors blasting music that was so loud, the house vibrated from the bass. Looks like I got two black eyes, I'm so tired. But need coffee otherwise I start getting a headache. Use to be terrible, drinking up to 5 cups easy. Now I can barely have 2. My gut can only take so much abuse from acid.

      Depression is indeed a beast. Debilitating, paralyzing. Coupled with the shutdown, it makes things difficult. You feel trapped, no way out. Kellysinclair101 I sort of understand. I was homeless in the Boston area, living out of my car, for over a year. You have to have faith in yourself that you can find a way through this. Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay? 《《《 Big hug 》》》 TA

      The best way. I'm jealous. Once upon a time I could drink coffee any time I wanted. Now it's just the early morning two cups and that's it. TA

      I have been having difficulty concentrating on things for the past few months. Today I was thinking about this more and it kind of felt like I was in a fog.  So I guess I have heard the term Pink Fog before I suppose, because I went ahead and googled it and came up with this post back in 2009 (oddly I could not find it here, but it looked like it was posted in this discussion group back in September 2009.   “Have many of you ever go through really bad pink fog stages where all you can think about is your gender issues? It seems like every two months or so this strikes me with a vengeance and I struggle to keep everything together. I am going through a pink fog phase at the moment and it is bitter sweet, I love the feelings and emotions I am experiencing and yet at the same time feel I am being smothered by a heavy weight of frustration.   I am struggling to keep on top of this and carry on with my daily activities, it's not so bad during the day when I have work etc to distract me but at night it is more difficult. Have you had these feelings and if so what do you do to manage them? My wife is very supportive but I can't talk to her about this as it makes her uncomfortable - I have already tried. It is so confusing and I just wished I could find a middle ground whereby I can be Rachael whenever the urge is there without being obsessed by the whole thing. Normally I am okay with being transgendered - love it in fact, but during these periods I find it a struggle as it makes me feel vulnerable and a bit lost.  “   Wow.  Yes, I couldn’t have described it better, or said it better, - same thing exactly but more frequently than every 2 months.  I have been dressing for the past 50 years. I found this forum a little over a year ago, and it has helped immensely knowing that i am not alone.  Everyone has been very supportive.   Things were going very well for me (my wife was supportive it seemed) until last October when my wife one day out of the blue told me she would leave me if I transitioned to a woman.  I was devastated as I thought things between us were going rather well.  (In retrospect- that week it was cold outside so I took advantage of that opportunity to wear a heavy coat to hide the fact I was wearing a bra and ran a few errands.  Maybe  my C cup was not so obscured) We have had some good discussion over the past couple of weeks and she told me she would have left me by now if she was unhappy.  So i am happy about that. She has some hard boundaries- no going out of the house wearing a bra, and I need to wear out some of my clothes before getting new ones.  I do love to shop, and have more bras and panties than she does.  She has a hard time wrapping her head around that, and has asked many times why i want to wear a bra when she hates it. I have tried to explain how it feels the right thing to be doing - it just feels right, (better than how I feel when I don’t have any breasts/bra) and when I look in the mirror I like what I see, but I think for a cis person they just don’t understand.     Probably way too much in this post - but if anyone has any of these feelings mentioned above how do you manage them?   Thanks for reading.   Hugs Janae

      @Rosalina101011 This is great news.😁 As you know, when starting out with your regimen it can be a little ‘up and down’ so just be on the look out for that. I periodically feel the ‘ups and downs’ but at least I’m more aware of the emotional changes now. I’ve learned when I need to change up whatever I’m doing to keep myself from being dragged down. Just changing my immediate environment is sometimes enough to help. But uplifting or relaxing music seems to help very quickly if I can’t drop what I’m doing.   Good Luck, Susan R🌷

      Odd dietary urges on estrogen? Not so much Estrogen but when I started Progesterone a year or so ago, it changed my cravings a bit. I find I have to fight my cravings of anything with vinegar and garlic. I used to be a very strict ‘blue cheese on my salad‘ girl but this last year I can’t get enough Caesar salad dressing on my salads now.
    • Rosalina101011
      I went back to  hormones  Pallets about three weeks ago. I seem to be doing better. I don’t have suicide thoughts like I used to. I haven’t had depression for a while. I have a very slow climb up where I used to be. I’m actually starting to like myself a little bit, not much but I would Settle for one percent. wish me luck everyone still here on this earth
