I get it. I'm in February (the 4th). I am so, so excited. The wait is finally almost over. I've been ready since we scheduled it. I'm guessing you're the same.

 

I'm so happy for you! You've got people who love you in your corner! Sounds like everything is coming up Debra!

 

Hugs!

We have a department pot luck tomorrow at the office. I just finished making a raspberry cheesecake with a dark chocolate drizzle. Looking forward to trying a bunch of different foods tomorrow. Gym clothes are in the wash now, as I know I’ll need them tomorrow after the pot luck. I hope everyone had a great weekend and can enjoy the little bit that’s left. *hugs*

Now I'm all hungry for cheesecake. That sounds delightful. Pot lucks are the bane of my diet this time of year. Still, this is why I work out: So I can eat garbage.

 

Hugs!

I have a work Christmas luncheon tomorrow, my wife’s MS Christmas luncheon on Saturday and my department at work is having a bake off on Monday, and I’m still full from the pot luck on Monday.  I’m not sure I can log enough hours in the gym this season. I think I’ll be eating nothing but salads for the rest of my meals for awhile.  
 

Well, the kettle is on, it’s not snowing at the moment and we’re one day closer to the weekend, so things are starting pretty good this morning. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Long commute today with very hot coffee in my travel mug.  Listened to an audio book and it makes the time go by nicely.

At work now and so thrilled TransPulse is back up.  Posting madly like a teenager can text.  LOL

Have a wonderful day all.

glad everything is good with the site. I was worried for a moment.  My Saturday of course the white crap is falling. and I have a VA appointment. probably not going to make it. me and crappy roads don't get along. Hope they clear by tomorrow. Have 2 appointments then. plus the wife and youngest are going to NE to drop off presents to my older 2 sons families. 

 

So, I am planning some girl time. Hope I can dress some for my appointments. Even if I have to take some cloths and my purse out to the car today when my son is at work. I will.  Right now I have to go out dressed when I can.

Saw the VA endocrinologist Nov.29th and told him that our little six month long experiment on T trying to resurrect my libido wasn't working and I wanted off. He said with no gonads I'd have to be on one of the sex hormones or else the bones will age rapidly and I'd be bent over looking at my feet when walking,  so he's put me on self administered estrodiol valerate injections every other week, no big deal. Guess I'm gonna be a girl after all.

I don't see that as being a bad thing.  LOL

 

I was asked about doing the injections. I know they work better being directly put into the blood stream.  However, I am afraid of needles and there is no way I could do it myself.  Not in a million years.  If I could have someone do it for me Id go that route.  But it would get expensive to go in just to get a quick shot.  It would be nice to not have to melt these big estrogen pills under my tongue though.

Finished my coffee, about to go to my drawing when I discovered the site was back up! Yay! I've missed everyone.

I have a VA appointment with my gender therapist tomorrow morning. Some decisions to make about my path towards transition. Wish me luck in finding the correct path forward.

I'm a little envious of those ahead of me heading towards girlhood while I still struggle with dysphoria over these floppy parts. All things in their own time, I suppose.

Big Hugs for all!

Good luck TammyAnne! Smartest thing I ever did was when I first went to VA many years ago, it's saved me a fortune in what I would have paid in counseling, HRT and other medical expenses.

You realize, of course, that that's exactly what I was thinking two years ago, hehehe 😎.  

Which is to say, while we're all on our journeys, each with its unique pacing and associated calendar dates, at the same time we're able to be here encouraging and supporting each other no matter the milestone each is working through. 

 

That's why I remain active here!

 

Hugs,

I used to live north of Boston, too! Arlington, then Somerville, then Bedford and Westford!

Yes, we're all moving at our own pacing on similar journeys. While I'd like to be less impatient things proceed at their own speed.

Congratulations on the new business venture @Debra Michelle  I wish you and your husband nothing but success. 
 

Well, snow is falling again, so it’s going to be a messy commute today. A nice cuppa should keep me warm on the way in. The weekend is almost here and I have my work Christmas luncheon today, so things are looking pretty good. 
 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Good news to see that things are going well (except for the sloppy commute) for people.

It's time for me to hit the drawing again, but wanted to check in to say that after a year of meeting with my gender therapist (the delay was mine, not the VA or therapist), I am being referred for the start of HRT, presuming my blood workup shows me healthy enough. I am so looking forward to becoming myself.

I've been smiling all the way back from the therapy session.

This is fantastic news!   I am so happy for you two.  Having trans employees is the icing on the cake too.  It must of been such a relief for them to have a boss like you.  
Good luck with your business!

      What a nice morning smile.  I remember shortly before starting HRT i had invested in a pair of silicone forms from our sponsor The Brest Form Store.   I had grown quite comfortable and had been full time for some time.  One day, while working with a young man in the summer, i had gotten quite hot and sweaty.   Bending over to pick up  a tool i managed to catch the flesh colored object flying towards the ground.  Awkward!  Silicone forms should be labeled "slippery when wet".   Soon afterwards i found mastectomy bra with pockets. Loosing a wig.......that's another story for another time.  Motor cycle helmets can be awkward. I can't imagine the stories our FTM members might tell.   There are certainly humorous aspects of this journey.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good Morning, World! I had the night off from work yesterday. I'm not used to sleeping at night but I did. Sitting here in front of my laptop computer with a qup-a-quafee in my hand. I love my Mr. Coffee maker. He is faithful. And always makes me feel satisfied. Even though he can be a little bit of a drip sometimes. What to do today? I know I have to work tonight. I don't have to be there til 10pm but I usually show up 2 hrs earlier. I don't like being late for anything. It eliminates the "Hurry up! You're Late!" anxiety form the equation. Why stress yourself if you don't have to. Besides it allows me the opportunity visit with my patients. I work on a rehabilitation unit. A few months ago I had patient who's grandson was trans MTF. She often spent the night sleeping in the chair in her . grandma's room. They were very close. The grandma was very supportive of her granddaughter. She was a cool 1960's hipster granny. I got the feeling that the granddaughter was living with the grandma because her family wasn't accepting of her desire to transition. She was very cute, shy and slender with long brown hair that she deliberately seemed to drape over half of her face. Her face lit up like a light bulb when I h The granddaughter was worried about losing her grandma. I reassured her that her grandma was going to be OK. Her broken hip will mend and she will be able to take her home in a few days. I love my job. It is part of who I am. My payroll direct deposit doesn't go in til tonight.   I did some rollerblading on Saturday for about two hours. It was a good work out.  I was a little concerned that the extra weight that I'm carrying would cause me to be off balance and fall. But I did quite well. I've been rather lazy all winter. I didn't go to the ice skating rink like I usually do. I'm actually pretty darn good on the ice.(It helps that I was raised in upstate New York on a farm with a pond that iced over in the winter.)  Now I've got to work the flab off of my thighs and butt. Fat distribution is a pain in the ass!  I've got to stop procrastinating on my artwork. Every time I have a weekend off I tell myself that I'm going to work on finishing the first issue of my comic book "The Specials". It's been quite a while since the last time I submitted anything new to DriveThruComics.com I put up the teaser issue of the comic but nothing more. I've had writer's block before. I don't want to go through that again. I've got 2 weeks of vacation time coming up. Maybe that would be a good chance to get to work on it? I noticed that there is a section on this forum for poetry. It's any to a good a place as churn my creative juices.   I'll catch a couple of hours sleep this afternoon so I'll be fresh for work tonight. Ya'll have a wonderful day!   Be safe. Be smart.

      Hi, Trisha.  Welcome.   I am happy for you that your partner is supportive.  I was a nervous wreck when I told my wife, but she said, "Whatever you decide to do, I will support you."  That kind of support is beautiful to receive.   Regards, Kathy

      She was wanting me in once per week to get the other issues ironed out before heading into real conditioning.  I do have a ton of physical exercises and stretches I have to do and a few voice training techniques to do while driving.

      I have learned never to rub your tummy while in the maternity clothing section of a department store. Especially if you have a bit of tummy. And are not wearing overly wise clothing.   So there I was, shaped wrong, apparently, wearing a house dress, over my long skirt, looking stupidly maternal (I was not aware of that at the time), and absent mindedly rubbing my tummy. "Is this your first?" a passing woman commented. My brain didn't get it fast enough, and as I have a son,  I responded, "no." 2 minutes later, my brain kicked in (the woman had moved on), 'you idiot, that was NOT the correct answer'.   And I don't always learn the first time. Same outfit (some of us never learn), grocery store, reaching for something almost out of my reach. "here, let me get that for you dear, you shouldn't be doing that in your condition." Blind sided, I accepted the item, didn't know what to say, and the nice man moved on.   Groan
