Tammy Ann is correct. enjoy time with your parents. I am lucky my mother is still around. still independent at 84. Lost my Dad in 06. Still miss him to this day. Also haven't came out to any of my family, Mom, brother, or sister.  well still not to my sons either. My youngest has to know he has seen me on this site.

Enjoy! I don’t think I’ll tell my parents, and I’m ok with that. 

One of my many concerns with coming out, is telling my mom.  I don't know how she'll take it.    She is understanding, but also from that older very conservative generation.

Coming out - I think it deserves its own forum - is a difficuLt adventure for almost everyone.

Fortunately I'm at an age where what others think matters little to me.

I'm enjoying my morning coffee on an obviously fall day with the bluejays screeching about outside. Wish everyone the best day possible!

That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.

 

Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁

 It does have its own Forum:  " https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/forum/57-coming-out/ "

Honestly I knew that. It was a tongue in cheek way to direct someone there, since I've never mastered the art of link posting on my tablet.

Thank you for stepping up!

I figured you knew, I just posted the link just in case  😉. All I do is copy and paste the link (using my iPad mini), nothing special.

Unfortunately Tammy Anne many of us who reach the age we don't care have difficulty with some of the technical aspects of these confusers.

 

Grocery shopping today.  Even farms need toilet paper.

Okay, if you only knew how jealous I am of you now!

I love - would love - that hairstyle. Baldness has put a dent in that so that even though my hair is longish, I look more like Ben Franklin.

Congratulations on your good news. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my November oncology appointment gives me the same news, even I can't have the same hairstyle!

We are in the 40's here so my oatmeal with blueberries, juice and coffee will help face a days work ahead.  Many farmers get some time off during the winter.  We stay busy with the goats kidding in February and a sugar season here that can start as early as January and run until march.  I'm trying to get some new doors on a pole barn to create a new goat shelter.  I'm grateful the i can still be this active in my 70's.

@Charlize And here I am complaining it’s 80-95 deg everyday still, 😂. I don’t mind the cold too much, but now that I have been enjoying wearing skirts and dresses so much, I don’t think I want to bother with pants anymore 😂. I got rid of most of my pants, and I’ve either worn shorts or skirts. Wearing pants actually feel weird now. It’s hard to tell what kind of winter we will be having, so maybe it will stay warm for a bit longer.

i love goats, so it makes me smile when you talk about them. 

Im happy that you are still active at 70 too, and keep staying active, that’s what will help you, and everyone, to stay healthy the more that time passes. Being active and purpose helps the body, it sure helped my grandpa live to 102!

Hi,  Telling my parents is something I don't have to worry about.  Parents and sibling all gone years ago.  At the same time, I have to think that my father would not be accepting but I often think that my mother and sister knew even before I did.  Telling people you love and who love you can be difficult.

Goats are very cute. They almost remind me of dogs when they wag their tails and try to get rubbed on their heads. Baby goats are lots of fun and like playing. I once helped care for a weak baby goat and the poor thing just needed some human contact. It gained its appetite and in no time was walking around again. Once it was ok then the mother accepted it back but initially I almost think she was going to just let it die. It’s amazing how animals can express gratitude, friendship, and even love without saying a word. I don’t think i’v ever met an animal that didn’t like me. Maybe at first they would be a little leery but they usually would warm up. I truly believe that not just people have souls. How else can you explain a dog saying goodbye and then dying a couple days later? OMG, I’m fighting back tears. I always remember my animal friends. They have often been more real than people.

Good morning! Almost finished with my Potato Breakfast burrito, but no coffee. I’ll make some later. 

My nipples are a bit sore, and they have been growing a bit, along with my breastages. They have been growing a bit more after the 6th month mark, and I think it also has a bit to do with the increase in the E Meds. I won’t be able to wear these shirts much longer without help from another shirt, or I might have to figure something else out. My friend said she has noticed more growth and  of a profile showing them a bit more. I’ve noticed my shorts have been fitting a bit more snug on my hips and buns. I’m very happy with all of the positive growth!

@Ellora congratulations! I’m also finally filling out the jeans that I bought last year. I’m eager to get more like them because they are so comfortable sometimes I just wear them around the house even if I don’t want to go out.

 

It’s a bit late for me to drink any coffee but maybe tonight I’ll get a sweet red and kick back with a glass. 

 

My hyaluronic acid serum arrived today! I have heard a lot of good things about it but I’ll just have to try it out and see if anything positive will happen. It’s about 4 fluid ounces so hopefully that’s enough to last 4 months before I have to get more. And that’s going to give me enough prolonged use to see results. It’s supposed to hydrate and plump the face really well. Supposedly as we age there’s less of it present in our bodies. I’m not sure how it really works but I’ll try to find out more information.

      As a fellow human being and long time trans person, let me assure you that there is nothing wrong with you, and I'm basing that on your description of your physical self. I think what's ruining it for you is your hypersensitivity over how you are being seen by others. That in and of itself can be devastating to one's public persona. I was friends with a very passable post-op MtF and whenever we went out in public she would begin to look furtively around to see if anyone was staring at her or whispering, winking at eachother or nodding as if they had read her, she was so self conscious that she actually drew attention to herself which only served to out her to others and left her feeling devastated. I'm sure that this is exactly what you are doing inadvertantly, you can work your way past it on your own or discuss it with a counselor who might even fix you up with a hypnotherapist who can get you past it. Good luck my friend!

      Thank you for the kind replies.    Also thinking about posting some of my artwork after school!

      As an American, I'm very curious how the UK government's National Health Service functions for transgender people. I hear a lot of trans people talk about it in passing as part of their transition, but not fully explain their experience for the benefit of people who don't live there and aren't very familiar with it. I know the basics  of what it is (it's a government/socialized healthcare system as opposed to the mostly private/for-profit American one), and I get the impression that it covers a lot of trans medical expenses at no cost, but the wait list is super long, so some people end up paying for private care anyway. So, to any Brits out there, what has been your experience with the NHS? Just curious.

      Two thumbs up Aidan!
    • NB Adult
      Vicky is so right about that! Dating to me was really just a means of initiating a possible friendship which is usually established once the other party began to see me as non threatening and a nice person to spend time with. The question of a possible sexual relationship, if at all, might come much later based on IF all the emotional factors between two people mutually click. 
    • Adrian Doyle
      I’m glad that she was pretty accepting! Have a great day!
    • VickySGV
      Transphobia comes in when the person decides sight unseen that they would never consider a Trans person as a viable dating option and when they find themselves attracted to a Trans person becomes violent toward the Trans person from personal disgust and self loathing.  It is the reasoning behind the decision.    I do get a feeling of disgust at the idea that "Dating" is actually a euphemism for SEX.  Maybe I am too old, but Dating was a way of getting to know a person intellectually and emotionally long before SEX entered the picture.  I Dated many people with the idea of having companionship and enjoyment of common interests, and only Dated people for those reasons.  I buy dinner or show tickets for many friends whom I have no sexual interest in although some hand holding and a hug or two are welcome with boundaries we both honor.

      Morning everyone. Got to school safely and now in 2nd period American Lit. Hope everyone is having a great day.    Yesterday night I came out to my stepmom as bisexual and she was pretty accepting. I held back on telling them because I didn't want them to think I was a lesbian, (Noting against them, I am just a guy).
    • TammyAnne
      I can't say I disagree. After all, if coercing someone into having sex is viewed as rape, then how would it be different forcing/coercing someone to begin dating a person they don't feel attraction to? The heart loves who/what it loves. Labeling someone phobic over those choices doesn't make it better. I'm open to being with anyone I'm attracted to, regardless of gender. I'm not open to being with someone I'm not attracted to, regardless of their gender nomenclature or equipment.
    • Lucca
      It's just, I can't think of anything that would irritate me more or make me more uncomfortable than someone telling me I had to want to have sex with them or else I'm morally wrong.

      Monday morning Blaaa.  Coffee is gone.  Now I suppose I have to get somethings done at work. Some of which mean heading out to go do inspection at remote clinics around the hospital campus.  Its so cold out too.  Sigh. Oh well.  Its money...

      This is not a unique thing Ronan, I started HRT back in 94 and have never officially "Came Out" to anyone. As the changes took place everyone just assumed that I have become different. I've even been asked by nervy people who don't even know me if I'm MtF or FtM and I think it's hilarious, and I usually respond with, "I dunno, take your pick!" 
    • Lilbitconfused97
      Thank you for the replies! Although it is sad to hear that you both had self-destructive behaviour, it is comforting to hear that others treated themselves the same way. I always felt angry that I couldn't just treat myself with respect and be a well-rounded 'boy'.    It seems as though the next step is try and talk to a gender therapist, as although the councillor I see at university is kind and caring, I think she is very out of her depth with my issues.    I am glad to hear that both of you came out of the tunnel on the other side! If you can do it so can I.    Hugs, Tom.
