I only have the issue on my phone. Yesterday I couldn’t log in so I tried on my laptop and had no issues. Just in the mornings though.

 

And @ShawnaLeigh you are plenty smart, please don’t tell yourself otherwise.

Seriously.  I have no idea why.  

It's been happening to me too lately.

Hi

 

I was having trouble with my iPad getting to this site last week but not my computer.  But I did find that although typing the address wasn’t working searching the site would get a link that did work.  Then I noticed that it needed httpS://www.  Instead of just http://

 

now whether that was the fault of Apple or a change for the website I don’t know but all is good now for me.

Good morning! Slept poorly with the weirdest dreams last night. When I say weird, believe me they fall off the end of the strange scale! Got coffee, trying to get myself organized. Have a computer to nurse into functionality today. Oh joy.

I wish everyone a wonderful day.

I had late start as I had to go get a massive amount of blood drawn.  

I swear they took half of it.  Then drove an hour to work.  I had to fast from yesterday noon so I am famished but coffee first.  LOL

I hope everyone has a great day!  Mine feels like it has not even started yet and I am way behind.

Good morning 

 

beautiful blue sky and sunshine today.  For the older crowd, no lollipops.

 

drinking my morning joe.

 

going to try to get to water aerobics today.    No longer restricted but I have to be careful what I do while the bones finish healing.  Water increases the resistance while reducing the impact.  Doctor said that would be a good way to go.  I’m afraid yoga is out forever.

I don't know about the website but I generally use 'https'. That is a better thing to use as it is more secure than 'http'.

Morning all, today seems to be a good day. 

 

Got my blood drawn to make sure my medicine is not jacking me up inside, hopefully it's not because it is really working. I had to fast for it and it was really tempting to lick to peanut butter off the knife as I was making my lunch, but somehow I managed to not haha.

Running late today. I was talking to Rey about her grand kids, then to Chloe about my surgery and it put my workout back about forty-five minutes. Time well spent in my opinion. I still got to my allergist in time for my shot. I probably should have eaten something before I left the house though; I was a little wonky when I stepped back through the door.

 

Wolfed down breakfast (I don't think I tasted it) and found my test results from yesterday are mostly done. They still need to finish the mercer culture. I spent all day yesterday getting that taken care of. The good news being that all my values are within normal tolerances. REALLY should have eaten more yesterday, they took a good five vials of blood out of me. I basically ATTACKED a Jimmy John's sub around 3:30 (I don't think I tasted that either) then skipped dinner because I'd just murdered a sub.

 

Today, I've just got my writing project and maybe some more food on the agenda. I've got some peach yogurt with my name on it and some pears that need to be eaten. It's a good day though. It'll be better when Jen tells me that she got my check and I'm good to go for surgery.

 

Hugs!

Hi Willow,

Sorry I missed it, but what happened to your bones?  Did you break something?

Hi. @lauraincolumbia I had surgery to fuse a joint in my big toe 6 weeks ago.  I had two large bone spurs, other arthritis and the joint was rubbing bone on bone. Walking had been painful prior to the surgery.  Now it feels great, but won’t be fully healed for another month.  I am released to wear a shoe at least.  
 

water aerobics went well.

 

@TammyAnne yes I left out the rainbows but that’s because there weren’t any. Now I’ve had that song lyric stuck in my head all day.

Holy Moly the roads in Vermont are crappy this morning.  3.5 hours to drive a 1.5 hour commute.  Ran out of audio books and coffee!

Sigh

I hope everyone else is having a safe and warm day.

Cold, snow and slippery roads.  That’s why I moved south, just like the birds.

 

no coffee yet, but it’s coming.

      I'm going through the VA. The Endocrinologist retired, so paperwork had to be submitted to get me to an outside consultant. Then the Covid 19 thing hit, and I'm going to try not to go nuts waiting. I understand that Planned Parenthood is still open a few days a week, so I'm going to ask for a possible referral there to get the ball rolling. Until then, I'm still waiting. But starting to feel very antsy. TA
    • Susan R
      Love this answer. Best reply of the day...so on point!  Thanks Jackie!   @Wes..its always ok to vent here...we love reading about your good times and bad....we don’t discriminate.   Susan R🌷
    • Susan R
      Sometimes humor is the best way to deal with frustration.  I have no articles specifically dealing with this issue but only my humble advice.  I would be sitting her down and seriously make the effort to reason with her.  Make an event of it away from kids, TV, music, etc..so she knows this is a big deal and something needs to change.  I think it would be important to keep all other issues out of the conversation and in a nice way explain to her why and how much this means to you.  You might ask her what you need to do to help make this happen...don’t expect a quick response.  Let her know how much this hurts when she calls you you’re birth name when you’re presenting as Shawna.  If that doesn’t work, there’s likely not going to be any resolution any time soon.  Communicating your needs in a polite, logical and calm manner usually works with reasonable individuals who are not vindictive or petty.  Let’s hope your wife is neither.   Susan R🌷
    • Emily michelle
      I’m glad you were able to come out to your wife and that she is supportive. That’s a huge weight of off your shoulders. When o came out to my wife she acted like things make sense now. I was the one who was an absolute wreck I cried for several days when I broke down, and so far she is my biggest ally. On the other hand when I told my sister she flat looked at me and said are you serious and that’s when I lost it again. She has come around a little bit but I still don’t think she understands.
    • Susan R
      @ShawnaLeigh This guy understood you meant business and he is in the past now.  Part of me feels proud of you for sticking up for yourself.  That being said..this stuff happens everyday and you don’t want to put yourself in that situation again ever.  Most of these online idiots are cowards and won’t actually go any further.  Realistically though, this might not be the case if it happens again.  You never want to have to do to ANYONE what you ‘inferred’ you’d do to him...no matter how justified you are.  It would immediately change your life in many detrimental ways for the foreseeable future.   My 2¢, Susan R🌷
    • Emily michelle
      Oh wow that’s a long wait since November I don’t think I would be able to hold it together that long. Is the endo just that busy or what was the hold up? If you don’t mind me asking

      Venting is good for you, Wes. We all do it. It beats standing on the street corner screaming at the cars! (Unless you just like being arrested!) TA
    • Jackie C.
      I'm sorry you had such a lousy, rotten, no good day @ShawnaLeigh!   Susan and I do what we can but... I'm helpless at household repair stuff. I can troubleshoot electronics and that's about it. She's actually more capable in a lot of areas than I am. I mostly just know who to call for help.   I'm not going to last long when civilization finally cracks, am I?   Hugs!
    • TammyAnne
      That's where I'm at (waiting) too courtesy of the plague. I'm told all my papers are in a file waiting to go forward to the endo. But I'm going to beg to get it pushed forward ASAP at my next appointment since this was supposed to start back in November. TA
    • TammyAnne
      Due to medical things being on hold for a while, I will not get to start HRT until I'm 70. Is it too late? Too late for what? I wish I could have started fifty years ago, but the times were quite different and this was unthinkable course of action at that time. I will never look like a nineteen year old college girl, I know that, but I can be me to the best of my ability. It is better to plow forward even if it's late than to finish my life in regret. TA
    • Susan R
      Wise words from a wise woman.  Yes, this is the case in our household too.  Apparently, I forgot to negotiate this change in household roles when coming out....too late now.  Sure, it’d be nice for my wife to do more of my traditional male duties around the house but I realize it’s not practical at our ages. I do those things easier, faster and usually do them correctly the first time...lol   I feel for you...especially these day with no salon to fix you up in a snap.  We’ve all been there...keep your head up, hon! My Best, Susan R🌷

      Welcome KM, what an incredible story of coming to terms with yourself and sharing it with your wife. You did the right thing for your mental well-being.  There comes a time when you can’t just pack it away any longer.  The freedom you describe is so memorable to me.  It’s like a 200lb weight had been lifted off you.  I know your still feeling some of that relief 5 days after the fact.   What you say above is THE recipe to navigate through this successfully. I did this same thing with my wife and it has brought us closer together than ever before.  Like you, I gave my wife the keys and trusted she would open a door whenever I needed more.  It’s been over a year and all the doors are unlocked and life is good.   What an inspiration this is. I’m very happy for you and your wife.  Please keep us updated as to your progress.  It’s still very early but I’m confident you’re going to experience a positive outcome. I was so impressed I had to share your story with my wife.  I said to her, “Doesn’t this sound familiar? She read it and smiled!   Best of luck to the both of you on your new path. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Wow super job and such a wonderful start!  I’m am so jealous.  My coming out to my wife was a drama cry fest that took me three days to get the bare bones out.  We are getting a divorce on friendly term though.   your wife is an amazing and strong women.   Welcome to TP also if I had not said so yet.  
    • Carolyn Marie
      No problem with venting here, Wes.  These forums are perfect for that.  Your parents will probably come around after they have gotten used to your new name.  Be patient; I think it will work out all right.   Carolyn Marie
    • Jackie C.
      It sounds like you're off to a solid start. You and your wife are communicating (Bravo!) and you're setting boundaries that you both can deal with. While there's no guarantee that she won't be overwhelmed by the weird somewhere down the line, you're doing everything you can to preserve your relationship. That's HUGE! Well done. Pip pip. Promotions all around. 😋   Hugs!
