Sorry to hear about your sister @AdriannaB.   I hope she recovers well. 

 

Very cold (10 degrees) here.  Brrr. The wind was howling last night while I was trying to fall asleep.  Its calmed down a bit but the trees are still swaying.

Had the anger coming out getting the call from mom and I am letting the police do their job.It gave her a wake up call she needed to get out.

Shaping up to be a good day. Last night was date night. Susan and I went to our favorite Chinese restaurant and then out to Ann Arbor to listen to the Out Loud Chorus. They're a LGBT+ choir and my therapist was playing the MC (and the saxophone, I had no idea she could play) for the evening. After the show, the three of us met in person for the first time. It was magic.

 

We also beat the snowstorm home, so that was nice too.

 

This morning, outside is white and the last time I checked, it was still falling. I made stuffed French toast for breakfast. I may have overdone on the peanut butter. It was still good.

 

Now we're waiting for the white stuff to stop falling so we can run our errands. Well, that and doing laundry. It's quiet and peaceful. Just the sounds of my keyboard clacking and the snow-blowers grinding away in the distance.

 

Hugs!

That’s wonderful.   Everyone knows about me by now but no one has “met” me as me yet.  It may take time.  I have so few articles of clothing.  Lol

So all you computer techies.  I am still having intermittent issues with no being able to connect to the server TP is on.  I lost access for about 18 hours.  Just now getting back in. 
This is on all devices I use.  On different WiFi accounts and providers across two states. I  
I do not play around with the settings at all and it works most times just fine.  I don’t feel it’s a settings issue.  
I am getting frustrated missing out on what’s going on in here for huge chunks of time.  
Any suggestions on what may be going on?

I've experienced it as well.

From the Boss:  "The culprit is the server itself. Once Piper has all her equipment fully moved to the data center, she's going to pick a new machine to put us on."

Having a great day today with my afternoon coffee️.  Located the cemetery where my late birth mother was buried.  I called and had them email me her obituary which was not online anywhere. So after a long 7 month extensive search, I’ve found her and a huge assortment of my birth family!  Been texting my female cousin all morning and may sometime soon meet my only brother by birth.  Until today, I did not know I had any living blood family extended or immediate.  It’s amazing how life can change on a dime.

 

Yesterday was almost as amazing.  By pure luck during the search, my wife located my old trans roommate from 33 years ago.  Since we paid for all these search subscriptions we decided to find people we’ve long since been disconnected from.  So my old roommate and I have just started emailing back and forth but it looks like someday we might reconnect...we’ll see.


Here’s to tomorrow!

Susan, that sounds wonderful and terrifying at the same time. My dad was adopted, he’d found his birth family many years ago and they have been a big part of our life since. He spent the years after trying to help other adoptees reunite. Many successful, some not so much. I hope your new found family are lovely and accepting people. *hugs*

@Susan R This is nice to read.  I hope you won't be disappointed with any of them as sometimes these reunions can go sideways.  All my best to you.

 

So cool to reconnect with someone from your past that you have a present day connection with.

My mom was adopted. Found out that my grandmother by birth(is that such a thing) Was the subject of a book and later a movie about her life. my grandmother went blind in her early teens and was probably raped.

 

She was from the upper crust in new England. Great grandfather owned an outdoor outfitters. So everything was kept quiet. A young lady of society having a child out of wedlock. Was unheard of especially in 1936. So she was sent off to "school" in IL. Where my Mom was born.

 

She has been researching our family on both sides. Found out I am royalty I am descendant of King Henry the 5th.  Now kneel to your princess knaves. LOL

Thanks Jani & @SaraAW ...it has been so nice.  I hope to learn more about my bio family in time now that I’ve unlocked Pandora’s box.

Wow, this is wonderful news Adrianna.  I found this to be the case in my neighbors.  I wasn’t expecting it either.

That was a bold question by your neighbor but they probably saw that you were comfortable presenting female.  When I first came out, I can remember talking to some neighbors that had not yet seen me presenting as Susan.  They never even mentioned I was dressed as a woman.  They had likely already heard the news from another neighbor (word travels fast here).  It was several weeks later when things became routine that they were brave enough to breach the topic with me.  After a week and all their questions were answered, it’s never even discussed.  They treat me as one of the girls now...it’s been great.

      I'm sure it's your mental game. I never had trouble crossing the finish line all the way down to .1 T. You'll get there.    Hugs!

      Thank you Jackson, that definitely helps

      Four to six weeks is the projected recovery time. After that, I can go back to the gym. Right now I'm trying to figure out how much of my discomfort is the swelling and how much is this stupid diaper.    Hugs!

      Salutations Piper and welcome to TransPulse!   So yeah, the occasional bout of doubt is pretty normal.  However,  here's the good news: You never need to take a step that you're not comfortable with. There is no set road map for transitioning. Nobody is going to be upset if you just do it your own way. It's about alleviating your body dysphoria and taking steps so you can learn to live comfortably in your own skin. The biggies to remember are: Cis people don't question their gender. Like Mary said, we're our own worst critics. Finally, don't do anything that makes you uncomfortable. This isn't a quick process. No need to rush into anything before you're ready.   In the meantime, here we are with experience, advice and snappy answers. There are no silly questions and we'll do our best to answer.   Hugs!

      Hi Piper, Welcome to Transpulse. I'm glad you're here!   We are a friendly bunch. We won't bite, I promise.🥰   Lots of love and a big welcome hug, Timber Wolf 🐾
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I fully agree.  To a point.  I say this from what Vicky had pointed out that “passing” is mostly a mental aspect and if your physical self does not match the mental image then your always going to be trying.  Another wise thing I have read previously from Vicky as well is we are always going to be our own worst critics.  Couple those two mental components it’s a very small margin we give ourselves to “pass” in.   However I am a goal oriented person and always live life on a check list.  While this helps me organize and complete things I have had to learn I can not view my transition as a check list.  I’m not a patient person either so my struggles to say it takes time does not make me feel any better. I had to change that.   In other words I set far lower expectations of my appearance.  Yes I struggle with this.  I have my demons and dysphoric times where I do not “see it” but that takes time too.   At first I doubted I’d ever look feminine enough at all and now I feel like a beautiful women in my person my heart and on the outside too.    That is all a mental process.   I have always had a “not cared what others think” type of personality so this transfers nicely for me on what others may see.   Again to quote Vicky.  Most people will not even see you no less judge your gender.  Face to face interaction included.   It boils down to confidence.   And great hair and make up.  Lol  
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Well I have a T check this Monday so we will see.  Though I do not think I’m physically incapable but it’s more a mental component of I don’t care about it and it’s not a priority in my daily thinking.  Certainly not as it was when I was living fully male.   Which again makes me very happy.  My issue also is I’m not in a relationship where sex can even happen nor does anyone want me in the regard.  That plays a big roll too.  
    • TammyAnne
      Amanda I'm sorry to read of your disappointment and sorry that youve had to be rescheduled. Perhaps it's just as well if that hospital isn't going to be welcoming, you certainly wouldn't want to spend any time there. Or perhaps it's a technical issue, who knows? At any rate, you'll get there! 《《《 hug 》》》 TA
    • TammyAnne
      Hello and welcome Piper! You needn't feel shy. I lurked for more than a month just reading before signing in at the encouragement of my gender therapist! Lots of good information and friendly folks here. TA
    • Belle
      You probably want to make sure your T is high enough. T blockers may not even be necessary, and can apparently even be harmful and prevent future breast growth if your levels get too low. This is according to a few sources including my doctor.   From what I understand the "O" just takes practice. I'm sure you will learn if you try. They are not the same as before. I have had different types even before discovering who I was.   Belle ❤
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I’m not trying overly hard to speak differently as my voice therapist has my baseline voice at gender neutral.  I do feel I emit a more feminine voice and somewhat softer then before. I was told by my VT that I sound somewhat shy with being extremely confident in action.   But I do have lots of work still in that.  
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I appreciate the nice comments. I do feel confident in my female look now since I have finally seen that women from the inside come forth and I even show pride in myself.  I’ve always have been an overly confident person though so this is not new to me.  Lol  
    • Belle
      🤣 At least you will always remember it!   You've started the ball rolling now. Have fun being yourself in public. You know there's no going back now right?! 😋 It feels too wonderful.   And it is totally awesome that you are passing in public already! Are you using your female voice?   One thing I love about going out as myself is that even though I know I don't pass, most people treat me well, especially women. That affirmation is euphoric all on its own.   Belle ❤
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I ve always known that on some level but never thought I’d have to relay on my brain so much for this.  Lol My lady meds have shut down the works down there.  I’m both happy and sad.   I don’t know if I will ever have an “O” again. 
    • Belle
      That's super frustrating! I'm so sorry you're having to go through that I hope that is not a trend for hospitals!   I hope your trip to Houston was still fun in some ways.   Belle ❤
