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 also great news.  I know how wonderful I felt being put on HRT.  Like a huge start that finally was “starting”.  Lol

(you know what I mean.  Lol)

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!

Yes,it was a huge relief for them.The one that is starting her transition next month,knows she is not alone and I will be helping her out.I told her my story and hers is like mine.Found out she has support from her parents and older brother which is good to hear.Her family does want to meet me and going to next week

So far this has been a great day. So was able to get out dressed without the blabber mouth seeing. Did take the truck went the back way to Cheyenne.

 

So went and got my blood taken. Then up to the eye DR. Appointment is for 2pm not 10 my therapist is at 11. So went for breakfast. Went to Taco Johns. The gal at the counter thought she made a mistake and called me sir, not ma'am. She apologized 3 times. It was great. 

 

To my 1st appointment. After telling my therapist about what happened. She said that if she saw me on the street. She would think I was actually female. Which made me feel great. I had borrowed my wife's Purple knit sweater, Jeans, a padded bra. some cute brown booties.  After I had time to kill before my eye appointment.

 

I wound up going to the mall. wasn't nervous at all. Just walked along with my head held high. Say the cutest blue merle pomski puppy. I wanted to bring her home so bad. If she would have been a sheltie she just may have been in my coat coming home. I want to get a Shetland Sheepdog so bad. I compromised and picked up a Sheltie calander.  Got some cute frames for my new glasses.

 

All in all a great day. Changed into something more comfortable once I got home.

Well thought today was going to be a better day than it turned out. Work went fine,even getting the front room freight put away before I opened the the door. took about 20 min to do. Good thing Sat is a light freight day. However the backroom freight was still in the cart when I left. The downer I looked into trading my 99 Explorer on a 06 Wrangler.  Didn't have enough to put down. God I hate car dealers.   

 

Debra, glad it worked out for you at the funeral. May she rest in peace.

Busy day today. Went to my wife’s MS Christmas luncheon, did some grocery shopping and just finished baking several dozen cookies. Made triple chocolate Nutella stuffed cookie with macadamia nuts. Tomorrow I make some Turtle cookies. It’s for a baking competition at work on Monday. I haven’t baked in quite some time. Forgot how

much I enjoy it. I hope everyone had a good day. *hugs*

Good morning from inside the fog! No, really! It looks like the coast of Maine out there, thick fog outside. But I've got my coffee mug filled, and my warm things on, so it's good.

Hugsee and wishes for a wonderful day to everyone!

I'm up really early (for me anyways..6am) enjoying a nice big cup of java.  Yesterday afternoon, my wife & I spent 4 hours at a book lecture/lunch in at a church in downtown Seattle.  It was amazing.  The entire experience...the people I met attending the event and the content that unfolded during it and the author himself (Austen Hartley) was incredible.  He lectured on all things "Trans and what it means in relationship to today's church".  It was enlightening to say the least.  He covered a lot of the material in his 2018 book "Transforming".  I had not read it yet maybe some of you have.  Ironically, my new church up where I live is going to be having a 7 week study on this very book in Jan and Feb..  I'm really excited about that now.  I just wish the author could be there too but that isn't likely going to happen...wishful thinking on my part.  My wife & I already ordered our books through our church but we got a signed one while there.

 

I'm up early to attend a one hour workshop he facilitating that's happening before a service at that same church I had attended yesterday.  It was that good. The material he's going to cover this morning introduces newer scientific details not covered yesterday.  I'm excited.

 

Have a great day everyone!

Got to sleep in today. 6am.  Lol

We had my daughter and her boyfriend over last evening for a small turkey dinner as we had nothing over the holidays with them.  Watched a couple movies too. They left around 11pm.  
This morning I am making turkey soup.  I do so every year with the bones and scraps this time of year.  I love it.  
My coffee is long gone.  So is breakfast.  I’m

having an easy day so I hope everyone else does too!❤️

Waiting to hear from the vet about my three-legged cat today. We found a lump on his remaining rear leg while cuddling Friday night. The vet says it has to go. Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be attached to much of anything so it should be an easy surgery and a quick recovery.

Happy thoughts for the little guy. He's all alone at the clinic right now and probably frightened.

 

Hugs!

Oh, poor kitty.

Although I've seen a few cats that had suffered traumatic injuries that just carried on with their lives afterwards. Kind of inspiring.

I just got a call from Susan, he's on his way home. The mass was ugly though, it's going to Michigan State to get tested. Hopefully the vet got it all.

He's home in the recovery crate. He's not super happy about it, but I can't really blame him. Hopefully we can take the cone off in a couple of days.

Well the coffee shop was really nice today. It was a little rushed but fun talking to some people who actually wanted to hang out and just talk. There was a nice guy at the counter who was our barista and his husband is trying to buy a building nearby for some kind of reason that I didn’t catch but my coffee was delicious. 
 

We made plans to hang out north of town soon and have a home cooked meal. I guess once the ladies I met get a cousin settled in. It was refreshing to talk in a relaxed setting about paranormal things and astrology for a change instead of all the issues that have been going on. And it’s always good to make new friends who know what it’s like to be where I am.

Coffee! Hurray!

I couldn't sleep for some reason, so got up, got coffee going and just finished that beloved first cup.

Wish I could say I wasn't feeling stressed about things with the holidays coming, but I am. Terribly stressed. Partly because we will be entertaining quite a bit which includes the obnoxious husband of my niece who feels the need to grab onto me a lot. If this keeps up its going to lead to a very ugly situation.

Why do some people feel the need to act like 6 year olds all their lives?

      we have to walk the line between painting a realistic picture to people who starts transition and also just being optimistic and giving hope to people. I love the model where you need to go see a gender therapist that has the job to be very real with you and tell everything about transition not being a miracle cure or something and helping people clear the confusion and on the other hand me personnaly just telling my story of things going far better then they were and not trying to put false shadows in the picture. We need the stories where things don't go too well to warn people but we also need the stories that are going well and that are giving hope. We need hope.

      My wife and I enjoy going out together.  No one thinks anything of it, and we don't get stared at.  The only time the question of whether or not we are a couple comes up is when we are asked if we want one bill or two.   My wife was a bit weirded out about being a lesbian through no choice of her own.  She considers herself a "lesbian by marriage".  But she has no reservations about us remaining a couple.  As far as she is concerned, my transition is part of the "for better or for worse" that she signed up for.  I am not sure I could have done the same had the positions been reversed, so I consider myself very lucky.   My wife likes to be bratty.  Sometimes when we are walking down the street and she spots someone looking disapprovingly at us, she will hold my hand, just to give them something to stare at.

      Thank you so much i do try my best   Sadly ive lost count on how many TS /TG  that have takend this step  (ie transiton + also in some cases HRT etc...  ) to fast and then crached (incl in here as well as otherwise online ) and its therefore i try to keep this aspect alive as much as i can  and this goes  for  fore all ages  young as well as even older then me  both MTF as well as  FTM  . Its VITAL that we that have transitioned   (with or without HRT or  and  SRS )  DONT  paint up this glorius life  and  happiness  /princess  / Prince life  without also mentioning the struggle and price many have to pay. + the medical risks of this as well as of course what we have gained  of course.   And i would also like to add  reg  our situation over here from  having to high  bounderies (they were  WAY to high )  to be alowed to  start the journey they have now lowerd  to much  and  therefore  we have this  problems  with   more and more  TG`s  /TS   being alowed HRT etc... to YOUNG when they get older  they regret  there  choice .   Also i must also add that of course  there are happy cases   of  (in this case  )  FTM  that have  gone back to female  but as i said  way more that havent been happy ending

      @Sarahnr1 You wrote it clearly dear!

      Welcome Lily.  I'm glad you decided to come here and that you thought it would help.  There are many kind people here to speak with and even vent every now and again, as life presents challenges.  I'm happy to hear you've been able to break through and speak to someone.  This is good.  Understandably your family knows you well and sees the change in you.  Talk to your therapist about how to address this subject with them.   All my best. Jani 
    • Sarahnr1
      I couldent agree more  nor been able to express it  better  even as i tried  WELL spoken indeed   
    • Jani
      Doubts are common, but if you're on the right track they subside.   This is the critical point to understand.  Transition does not solve all the worlds problems.     While there are some that bemoan "gatekeepers", taking a good long time to grasp all the ups and downs of transition and coming to peace with your inner self can never be overstated.  Its always nicer when looking over the fence.  But no doubt this is hard work, emotionally and physically.    Jani
    • Sarahnr1
      Forgot to add  and  over here as well  with those on HRT  that had to stop because there mental problems.   
    • Sarahnr1
      Actually despite what is said in this otherwise brilliant article over here  (and also Finland for what ever reason actually ) FTM are sadly in MANY cases regretful of there  transiton (usely done  WAY to young and all done  with the  sergery etc...  )   and its  a HUGE problem this days  that to young  (ie  under  18 )  TS   being  given both HRT  and all the rest (incl sergery .)   and sadly over here  theres  no way back  as far i understand this  with FTM.       Its also important  to way in that  transiton is NOT the  magical gift that will magically  make youre life   a  living dream despite how many that claimes this. Its also  vital that if you go this route  you HAVE  to be  101  %   clear  on EVERY aspect of this desition  and the  possible price we may have to pay (or not  )and of course also what we  have to winn as well .   +  its also WELL known   that HRT   often  mess  with youre mental  mind  (hence im  refused to get my HRT  and   SRS due to my diagnosis i would  literly  go under  without   proper  support  24 /7 for the  first  year  or so   )  i have had  friends  (TS  )   that had to stop HRT on the count they were going  cracy   ( and i mean banarnas ) not to mention depression is  all to common  as well . Add to that if youre expectetaions  of this are not  in line to what  actually is duable.  other  words  its VITAL to have youre   actuall facts  on what  this step does  mean   and how far youre able to get .   All this said  let me be clear  im NOT against  any  transiton in any age (although SRS  or  the  other way for  FTM  )  to young   can and have been in many cases  gone the wrong  way .SO   its VITAL to get  proper  help   as  young  most defenetly  BUT   sadly im forced to say   that its  better to hold  on sergery  until 18 +   same with HRT   (blockers  fine  )    its  MANY  young TS  around  USA   that have to stop HRT as there mind  is  going   (ie depression etc...  ) same with  others that started  HRT   +  also many medical  risk factors  that force them to stop  of course     Same with  de transitioning  in general for some the  price to pay for this gets to high (incl they feel they cant  as it would indeed offend there god  & religion )  and so they feel forced to get back to there assigned birth. And  sadly they end up in many cases  brokend  down un happy and  in most cases miserable lifes  and also some commit  suicide.  This is the SAD  facts  of  being  TS

      Hi Lily and welcome!
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Lily!  I can appreciate the anxiety you feel even coming here and admitting how you feel.  It was a difficult moment for me, as well.  You made a good decision.  I would urge you to find the confidence to explain to your therapist about your dysphoria.  It's the only way he or she can help you deal with it.  They are there to help you, not judge you.   Please look around the forums and post questions and comments wherever you wish.  We'll be here to help.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Well, here's one...   Dispelling the Myths About Trans People 'Detransitioning.'   We're hard to study, because there aren't a lot of us and, by nature, we do not advertise our trans-ness. The biggest study ever conducted to date was less than 200 individuals. Even so, I'd take a movie penned by a minister with a grain of salt. I've heard way more stories about people who have chosen to live in misery to avoid offending their god in some way.   Hugs!
