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 would like to see that article. When I first started realizing what was going on I watched a movie with my wife called Tranzformed. It is a documentary created by detransitioners (by the way, gigantic trigger warning for the movie). I would like to see the full stories of those people, and see if any of them are changing their minds now.   This movie has been a huge source of confusion, difficulty, and dysphoria for me. And it certainly didn't help my wife move toward accepting me.   Belle 😖

      Hi, everyone. You can call me Lily!   I’m 20 years old and just recently had my “moment of realization.” I’ve been questioning my gender for four-ish years, but was mostly in denial about it until a few months ago. I’ve pretty much decided now that I want to be a girl.   I don’t really know what’s next for me. I have (diagnosed) social anxiety disorder and talking to people is extremely difficult. I haven’t been able to talk to anyone about these feelings, even my therapist. Lately my disphoria has gotten so bad that it’s affecting my daily life and my family has noticed and is concerned about my well-being. I can’t keep bottling up my feelings, so I had to promise myself that I would do something. That something was coming here.   It’s very difficult for me to share here too, but at least I know I will be accepted here. I look forward to meeting everyone in this community!

      Not sure if it was this site I saw a link to an article that stated those that de-transition are in the minority, and de-transition because of external pressures, (money, family, friends, job, support, religion, social constraints, etc). The article also states that a high number of those that de-transition resume transitioning months, or years later.

      Me too! It helps round your face out. They're really, really hard to find around here though. I feel fortunate that I managed to scrounge up what I did.   Hugs!

      Call your pharmacist and ask that one, beats me as to why.  I am not a pharmacist or pharmacist's assistant.
    • Jackie C.
      This was hard for me too. My therapist suggested that I take it slow and start with explaining my behavior away as cross-dressing and telling her it was completely sexual. I did not do that. PRO TIP: Do not open with a joke. It might seem like a good idea to break the tension, but it really, really wasn't.   Hugs!

      @Miseria, both of those glasses suit you well!  I couldn't say if I liked one pair over the other, but I may be slightly biased toward the round frames, possibly because I wear round frames... 😉

      Thank you Susan. It has taken a fair amount of imagination, to say the least, to picture the person I want to be when all is said and done. But when that moment hit me that I COULD imagine it, it was quite the revelation, like a thunderclap on a clear blue day. And it's fascinating the ways I've already changed since the realization. I feel a sense of optimism for the future I haven't experience since I was a teenager and a confidence that I'm on the right track that I've never had before.   Second attempt at therapy is set for tonight, and if that goes well, I might try to talk to my wife this weekend. Keeping her in the dark is the only real aspect of this whole process that's really bothering me.   Thank you all for the positive vibes and messages, it is making a big difference. It's great that there's a place like this where we can share these journeys.

      Thanks for your advice I love the story and I am really good around with strangers because I am extroverted too, just when I like someone my brain doesn't want me to mess up and look like a complete idiot, but he finds it cute. This morning he sat in the back of the bus and he told me to sit next to him, I abided.    There was one time I was in the bathroom and washing my hands and looked to the person next to me and let the water overflow and I said "Wow, this water is really getting out of hand." They laughed at me and smiled, I like making people's day better

      I get this. I respect everyone and I'm aware that each person is different but for me transition was a last resort solution that helped me a lot. I can't go back. (trigger warning) I know how suicidal I was before, I won't ever go back to that. That's true for my transition but also for other aspects of my life, how I make decision, how I take care of my mental health, how I allow myself to be positive or negative, etc. For me there's 2 options, accepting me like this or kill me, that's as simple as that.
    • Susan R
      Welcome Kathy, nice to have you in our community!  I had an nearly identical experience at that stage and the outcome was the same.  It has created an even stronger bond in our marriage and I’m sure you’ve experienced something similar.  The  reception to my coming out to family was and still is mixed after the dust settled.  I’m glad yours was much more accepting.  Also, congratulations on the upcoming GRS surgery.  This is wonderful and exciting news.  My wife and I have recently agreed that I will be having the surgery with an appt. scheduled in two weeks to discuss it with my Dr.  I bet you’re having so many emotions regarding your GRS.  I know I am and it’s, at minimum, a year or so off.  Thanks for sharing some of yourself with us here.  I look forward to reading more. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷
