That awesome news Ellora, well maybe not the soreness, but the rest of it. 

 

Josie, I’ve heard great things about hyaluronic acid. Hope it works well for you. 

 

Im headed to my father-in-law’s for the weekend. He is in some nice cottage country.  My wife is staying for a week, so I will be able to live next week as myself at home. I am so looking forward to it, as much as I will my wife. 

 

Have a a great weekend!

 

*hugs*

@Josie Beth Thank you! It makes me feel really womanly when I fit and feel the changes. I totally love the feel of my shorts now, so much i almost feel guilty lol 😂 😉. I giggled earlier, when i noticed them even more. The small changes are becoming more noticeable, which I love of course. Yesterday I got a compliment on my legs from a Mom that was dropping off her kid at T-K, (I was dropping of the twins). 

 

=Cheers=

 

Oooo sweet! Keep me posted!

@Ellora @SaraAW the hyaluronic acid works by preventing water from evaporating from the skin so it’s hydrating quality is second to none. It’s supposed to remove wrinkles and other blemishes. I have not had any adverse reaction to it. Upon further research I also found out that it can also repair gums which is great news for my teeth. It doesn’t squirt out a lot so I’m sure I can afford to put a small amount on my gums and repair the damage from smoking for so many years before I quit. 

 

Today i I got a job offer in Michigan to start working on IT contracts as soon as I can get out there. I’m a bit apprehensive because of my recent past but it seems very legitimate and I do have some solid proof that it’s real. Crossing my fingers that I can get everything in order soon and begin a new chapter of my life. Just the fact that I can work a more flexible schedule and be able to schedule with doctors and afford trans related surgery is almost making me cry. But I promise not to until I find out for sure.

Good morning!

A beautiful sunny day outside, inside I'm back in the studio painting away. Had a good, solid day yesterday - made a complete painting in the morning, then another in the afternoon. Hope to be as productive today too.

Everyone have a wonderful day!

We  just returned from a three day weekend in the Mid-coast Maine area (Rockland, Camden, etc) with our oldest and closest friends.  We had a wonderful time and the weather was very cooperative at high 70's to low 80's.  A great end of summer wind down trip.

@Jani - That sounds like a great time Jani, your weather out there sounds lovely. Here it's been raining all day, and 61f now as I type this, but the coffee tastes great, just sipping and getting caught up reading here.

It just started raining here finally. It’s been teasing rain for over a week and I’m ready for the fall to finally set in. Bring on the fall leaves and chilly weather. I’ time for hoodies and sweaters already.

We are in a bit of a drought here which is almost a relief after years of way above normal rainfall.  Unfortunately the temps have gone back up to the 90's.  Despite leaves beginning to fall it doesn't feel like the first day of fall!.  

I've still got to get more hay in the barn.  It's almost time to work on the tubing for the spring syrup season.  The bucks and doe goats are getting together to produce another years batch of kids.  Busy times here but i still like this.

Yes! I do love nice weather, but not when it’s too hot! We have been having cooler weather here, and hints of rain, but nothing substantial yet. Rain would be nice tho.

You were not too far from me. I'm over in Washington County, near the Canadian border.

The coast is lovely this time of year, the fall colors sprouting on trees all over the place. I swear I could see a maple tree turn colors over the course of the day!

Well even though it was a little chilly this morning the day turned out beautiful.

 

Yesterday, we drove about 130 miles for dinner. With our middle son and family. including one on the way. Looks like I will not have any problems when I come out the them. At dinner. My daughter in law noticed my painted finger nails and told my grandson. Then she said to my son "we may have any problems with gender diversity." My son pointed to both me then my wife. "We will have no problems with them."

 

Not really sure what they are talking about. but at least I will have no problems with them.

@TammyAnne Yes I see you are a little further north than we were the other day.  It certainly is beautiful country and the leaves are a wonderful sight.  The color is just enough ahead of where I am.  I commented at breakfast on Sunday that we saw license plates from all over the country and it's no surprise!  My friends have lived in Maine for 40 years and travel the state regularly.  I'm the only native Mainer of the four of us.  Who knows we may move back across the border at some point.

THe temperatures have been wavering, and next week it may be cooler, but we haven’t hit the Fall feeling yet. Trees have been changing color for about a month now, and that hasn’t been the same in a while. The weather has been wacky for the past 5-10 yrs and the trees have been confused as heck. At times we have had trees in fall colors, winter mode, and blooming all in January. Who knows what will happen in the next 6 months.

Well things have hit here now. Wet and miserable weather but not too cold yet. Autumn has come though and the trees are changing. I am now picking the apples for store as I get chance.

 

It is interesting how the weather changes these days Ellora. I have seen it predicted that we will have the worst winter for many years but that is said every year 😕

 

We will get what comes :D

Its still pretty much summer in the mid-Atlantic.   At least its not overly humid.  The bigger problem is the drought is becoming severe.

One of those grey, foggy mornings that this part of Maine's coast is known for.

But of a warm spell though, it's almost 60° here this morning.

It's felt like fall for a while here - the sounds of leaves rustling in the wind, smells and a cool tinge to the breeze, birds and wildlife in feeding overdrive. But the tree across the road here has gone from green to yellow to orange in just four or five days! The blueberry barrens have turned to red and orange and gold and maroon.

It's going to be a lovely fall. Then I have to go back to my studio in Arkansas and try not to melt!

Good morning all!

So I woke up at 5:40 am this morning which is earlier than normal but I felt rested so got up. Went downstairs carefully so as not to wake everyone else up and made myself a coffee. The weathers has been nice the past few days here in Raleigh, NC. Cooler than normal and not as humid. I remembered my thoughts as I drifted off last night - thinking how I can get more tanned. How can I make my legs look better. So I searched for bikini's - end of summer sale you know. Now I neither have the body nor the opportunity to go sun bathing n a bikini, but for some reason that didn't stop me. The images of women with beautiful bodies and my yearning to be like them I guess.

 

At 7am , when the time seemed more reasonable, I went backup stairs to start my morning shower routine which I've come to look forward too. These days I spend longer in the shower than I ever did in man mode. I use shampoo AND conditioner! Not one of those all in one thingys I used to use. while I wait for the conditioner to do its thing I slowly and carefully shave my legs. I love doing this. It's been about two months now since I started shaving my legs. Everyday. It hasn't gotten old at all, I love the ways my legs look glistening from the shower spray and how smooth they are. I don't think that will ever get old. I've noticed, for some strange reason, my knees get  "stubbly" (for want of a better word) before any other part of my legs. So I spend a little time longer shaving there. I love  how smooth they feel in the day.

 

After the shower, I shave my face (which is a chore). These days even invisible stubble really irritates me. To think I used to shave ever other day - how gross. Then comes my second favorite treat - moisturizing. I've very liberal with it all over - and I really love the feeling. I used to hate it, again in man mode  - the greasy, slimy feeling. OMG how wrong I had been.  These days there is nothing me more luxurious. I top it all of with a very feminine body spay, which I really like. 

 

I still dress in man mode (sad face here), but at least I'm wearing beautiful women's panties.  I've been thinking about how I can move further along the transition path (hence the tanned legs etc.) and have been looking at bra's a might be able to wear under male clothing. Unfortunately I need to lose weight. My bra band size is 46 and all those bra's come with huge DD cups - which em, are hard to hide.

 

I'm getting there (slowly). Hope you all have a wonderful morning.

 

Hugs all around

 

Samantha

      I agree with ShawnaLeigh, you should see a gender therapist to help you figure things out. I do recommend a gender therapist, as I've been seeing a regular therapist for several years, but still have many open questions.  Its a question of focus, rather than competence....
    • MaryMary
      You know what's funny? I have so much dysphoria that I feel I look ugly. So probably I could say the same thing if you share an image.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      So I had this conversation with my therapist about this question and told him it bothers me considering my given name as a Dead Name.  A name that represents who I was practically my entire life and the persona of my life's experience and knowledge.  I feel like says its my Dead Name signifies I am killing that part of myself off. To me anyways.  A part I still like to some degree.  A part I need to help the women inside bloom and grow and be strong when times are tough and believe me times are tough for me lately. I prefer to call my male persona name a Birth Name.  Simply that's what it is.  A name given to me at birth by my parents. Plus there is no killing. LOL   I love to fact I get to choose my own female name.  Anything I want.   However I made a significant observation the other day. I have been signing my name as Shawna my whole life.  Signing anything legal or checks or whatever.  I always signed my name first name, middle initial, last name that all bunched together in a scribing mess.  However Shawn A. is what you would see before it turned into a scribe towards my last name.  LOL Like I have been telling myself my whole life who I am inside. Or I just reading into it to much.  LOL

      This is great news.  It seems given enough time most people will come around or at least understand.  
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I'm transitioning MTF and I still love to hunt, fish, icefish, go camping, get muddy on my ATV, shooting archery and guns.    So yes.  If you still like female typical interests you can be a guy. Why not? JMO
    • lauraincolumbia
      Congrats Astrid!   Fenway?  I used to know a girl that worked at Fenway.  Unfortunately, she passed away, but I never heard from what.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Well I'm still in my confusion/discovery part of myself so I am hesitant to lay a label on anyone.  I can see you feel a lot like I do/did in my earlier years.  Born male and being attracted to females was a big thing for me because I felt female inside but played my male role my entire life.   I'm going toward transitioning to female just now at age 52, in the early stages still, though I am still only attracted to women even though I am becoming one myself. Having a strong sexual connection to your confusion is not uncommon.  It is a sexual change you desire it sounds like.  Going from one sex to the other is a sexual change and it is not unreasonable to feel sexual stimulation when contemplating it or acting on it.  JMO Saying that you are bisexual reinforces this to me. All I can suggest is what I was told and that is to try and see a gender therapist and see what he/she says.  I can tell you it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I have meaning and I am valid.  Not broken or need to be fixed.

      First congratulations on the doctor change and getting T.  I can see you are excited.     As to your spouse, he loves you and the life you have together and doesn't want it to end but he's afraid.  The best thing now it to continue talking.  I think it is harder for men to come to terms with this as society is so masculine-centric.  I don't know what the answer is other than it will work out one way or another.  Possibly if you lived in a different state (or locality) that was more open and accepting things would be different.  Keep talking.

      Hello Astrid.  I'm glad to see you found Fenway to be a good resource.  I also go there.  It seems you have a good plan laid out.  The only negative I had with Spiro was having to urinate frequently but the body adjusts and soon things are bak to somewhat normal.  I also started with low dose patches as I wanted to see how it was effected by my other meds.  I found no issue at all.  From those I've spoken with who stayed on lose dose long term, its done what they wanted and calmed the noise in their heads.  I think this may be good for you.  Jani
