You were absolutely right @ShawnaLeigh, the "unit" woke back up towards the middle of the second week. That's given me dysphoric moments in the dead of night or early morning. It's just a good thing I didn't get rid of my gaff panties. Otherwise I'd be mortified to go to the gym.

Yes I told you it would happen.  It was not a welcome thing for me either.  Quite the opposite. 

I will pray for you to you know who.

My surgeon? I've got just a hair over one more week. Well, a shade under two... Eh, eleven days.

 

Hugs!

Shawna, I hope you have a better today. Hugs!

 

Jackie,  I hope that everything goes well over the next 11 days. I’ve just recently started hrt and it’s already working it’s magic on my awkward protuberance, so I can only imagine what it would be like to deal with again. 
 

As for me, I’m really looking forward to the end of a long week. Work has been extra busy and last night I spent a couple of hours talking a friend through a crisis. My heart was breaking listening to her pain.
 

 That being said, my mood has been so much better since starting hrt. Not sure if it’s euphoria, placebo or it’s actually already helping my brain chemistry. Doesn’t really matter, as long as I can maintain the positive change. 

 

The weekend is almost here, it’s not currently snowing and my kettle is boiling. I said it’s a great start to the last day of my work week. 
 

Have a great day everyone!  *Hugs!*

Happy good morning to all.

Will be thinking of you with upcoming surgery.

My coffee is almost done, so I'll be heading to the studio shortly.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

It's been a night of poor sleep. But got my workstations set up, have Saturday morning errands to run, then rake leaves, then I get to spend time in the studio. Hurray!

Good morning, it's a dark and wet morning here in the Pacific NW, raining and a mild 45 at the moment, going up to the 50's later. Enjoying my 2nd cup as I type this, reading and posting. No work for me today, we have a visitor coming from Canada to our home, our daughter's boyfriend is driving down to take several of her things back with them in a car this time. She is in the process of moving to Canada, it will be nice to see him again. 

 

Have a lovely day.

We are also having a wet relatively mild day.30 MPH wind.  Actually a relatively big storm.  If it had been possible i would have finished the tapping today but instead i'm going to enjoy a day of rest after doing the chores on the farm.

 

Hugs,

Good morning all. I got back from a week at a work conference. Whilst I loved being there (was my first since being out as trans at work and everyone was so nice)  am very glad now to be home under a blanket with a kitten on me.

 

Love and hugs,

This is such a bittersweet moment as you know your children are moving on.   We can only hope we've done the best we could in raising them.  If certainly seems like you and your wife have. 

 

I noticed the PACWest weather as it made the news here.  It seems like some areas will receive some heavy downfall of rain.  Its gloomy here as rain is predicted later in the day through the night.  

 

@Krisvm that's good news about your trip.  Yes its always nice to be home!

 

I've been in a bad way recently but got some medication yesterday that seems to be helping out.  I was able to sleep most of the night.

Interestingly, I've heard about the mountain west, that they're experiencing a drought.  Parts of Colorado might get a snowless January for the first time on record!

 

Jani, I'm so sorry that you haven't been doing well.  I hope your meds are helping!

Thank you all for your kind comments.  I did lay low for the better part of the day and evening.  I just got up to get a bite to eat.  When I'm not well I do tend to "forget".  Not good.   

 

Again, thank you.  I'm feeling better already!

Starting my day with some Blueberry coffee my neighbor gave us for Christmas. Mmmm is it good.

 

Yesterday, my oldest daughter dropped by and to give me my second haircut since starting my transition back in 2018. Some of you old timers may remember the disaster I experienced with my first haircut back in July at a salon in town that sent my into a mild depression. I have to admit I was a bit nervous as my daughter took out the shears but it all turned out great.  Unlike my previous stylist, she actually listened to what I wanted and did a great job, IMO.  It wasn’t anything major just a trim, layering and feathering.


Have a great day all,

Susan R🌷

Finished coffee a long while back.

Then spent three hours shaving to get ready for my first laser hair removal appointment tomorrow. I hope they're not too stringent about my shaving, it's difficult to reach some places. After shave I felt around, then took my balding clippers to leftover fuzzy places hoping it won't grow in too fast. Caution: never use the clippers on your tender parts, I found that out the hard way years ago.

And of course, I'm such a dummy. I always keep my backup data RAID with me on in a safe place. I bent over to unplug it, lost my balance starting to fall. But when I reached out to catch myself, all my weight went on the middle finger of my right hand, bending it backwards severely. It's sore and swollen, but I guess I'll be alright. Just red faced.

Well, it seems that I must have broken my finger.

So much for finger picking on my guitar.

I'm going to have to splint the silly thing and make do for a while.

Oh ouch. Sorry to hear that @TammyAnne. The finger thing, not the laser hair removal thing. I'm happy about the laser so long as it doesn't turn you into a crispy critter (I personally go up like a magnesium flare with lasers, but as you can see I'm about two shades darker than 'Albino.').

 

Hugs!

Good morning everyone 

 

read that with some chipper ness in your voice!

 

I’ve had my coffee, and I made Belgium waffles for my wife and myself.

 

Yesterday was a great day.  We came home after church and changed.  I changed into Willow.  Why is that so great?  Because my wife can’t entirely get her head around having her (me) fully dressed up.  After we went to bed last night we enjoyed each other, something that hasn’t happened in a long time because of my coming out as transgender.  We are definitely talking about it more and she is slowly accepting it.

 

So yes, I’m in a good mood and so is she this morning.  
 

I hope everyone can find a good mood today, we all certainly need it.

 

Hugs

 

Willow

      i still just call it private part because when i first heard penis i was grossed out which was around grade 5 or 6 now it sound weird
    • MetaLicious
      I just call my penis for what it is.  I wish it wasn't, it is a penis, and I have no issues with calling it that.  However, I learned that the "seam" that runs down the scrotum is where proto-labia fused together in the womb - since then, I've taken to referring to that part on my anatomy as "labicles."  It gives me some comfort to know that my corret anatomy is there, just a bit mis-configured.   @ToniTone, it's not strange to me.  I have a history of UTIs that make the idea of a shorter urethra somewhat scary to me.  I don't think I want GCS (or any major surgery) at my age.  I just don't heal like I used to.  We all have to find our own comfort zone. 
    • Debra Michelle
      Mine are severe,we have a rule too called no smoking in the house including in the vehicles
    • MetaLicious
      Yeah, quitting is like fighting a bear - it just seems so much easier to give up the fight and let the bear win.  Then, after you have quit and feel like you're done for good, stress will come and whisper, "Wouldn't a smoke be just the thing right now?"  Or you'll walk past a smoker and the scent will trigger a nostalgic feeling instead of reminding you how disgusting it smells. I had a friend who would always complain about how his clothes smelled after hanging out at my house, and I was always dismissive of the notion until I quit.  Then I would visit a smoker and come home complaining about the stench my clothes had acquired.   It's like you can stop smoking, but you can never truly go back to being a non-smoker.
    • MetaLicious
      I know, right?  I was never much into social media of any kind, but now I find myself grabbing my phone before my alarm goes off just so I can hit the "Good morning All. Coffees on." forum.  It's truly becoming a second home for me in away no other site has been.
    • JoniSteph
      I can't afford it either right now. I am looking at too many other potential costs to even get started on HRT and rid myself of some of self-destroying dysphoria. One of which is multiple sessions with a psychologist @$180-200 per hour. Income is fixed so trying to watch the expenses knowing what is ahead. Just in a bad spot atm emotionally trying to do 1 day at a time. I am so happy to read of others progressions and can offer offer nothing but great support in their trials as well, even if I dont respond very much. I am lurking, reading and cheering you all on. Have faith in all.   Big Canadian Hug JoniSteph

      Maybe it's because of the 5 minutes I spent as a pre-med student in college (not literally 5 minutes but you get my point), but I'm fortunate to have a sort of clinical detachment on this topic. I look forward to the day I don't have to deal with the penis and testicles, they've always felt like foreign attachments, something that was grafted on to me against my will, but the words don't bother me at all. I can certainly understand why some would have an issue, though. 
    • Juelie_Atlas
      @ToniTone I don't believe that's strange at all. But just to point out from my own research, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but one part of gcs is hair removal from the area to prevent infection and other health hazards later on. Though I don't know about your other concern, a doctor would be the one to ask about that.  By no means am I saying you should go full gcs. That is very special for each individual and if they choose to follow the full process or not follow any at all, it makes them no less woman for us, or man for others. It is entirely up to you and your comfort level.   ❤️

      Honestly, my HRT just leveled me out. For the first time in my life I could think, react and feel appropriately. I can concentrate, feel compassion and generally function as a human being. I'm capable of loving myself as well as others. I have dreams again.   Without HRT, I was an emotional wrecking ball headed for a self-destructive end. Perhaps one of the most miserable human beings on the planet. You wouldn't recognize me if you'd met me three years ago. Seriously.   Surprises were things like how little emotion was actually getting through before the HRT. It was like switching from a sippy cup to drinking from the fire hose. I like the extra feels though. They make me feel complete.   Hugs!
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I too do not feel it is a concern of hers to manipulate anything for my sole benefit or even the benefit of many.  Would I like her to relieve me of this financial burden.  Heck yes but I would not pray for such a thing as I feel things do happen for a reason and eventually that reason will make itself known to me.  Countless times of strife and trouble in my life can be looked back on and a positive aspect can be seen of that event or incident.  Even if it is to just simply learn to not do that anymore. (I wish I had this mentality when deciding to get married four times)

      I'm also very allergic to cigarette smoke... how have you managed to co-habitate? Cigarette smoke on clothes will set my asthma off. I'm imagining a nightmare scenario for you... I'm only hoping your symptoms aren't as severe as mine.   Hugs!
    • Debra Michelle
      He knows I am very allergic to cigarette smoke too,doing this for me too.Found out when I was 5 years old,my allergist is glad he is doing it too
    • ToniTone
      I'm glad I got a giggle out of some of ya. It (the term) is both meant to make light of the situation (which has been another name for it, lol), and also me sincerely just owning it. Like many of you stated, I also don't really spend much time looking at or thinking about it.    I've decided I don't want gcs. I have too much hair down there, and some slight urinary issues that I worry would be compounded by a major change in my physiology. I'm not really that dysphoric about that bit. It's the other bits that bother me. I'm eager to get an orchidectomy. Is that a strange disconnect? Wanting the orchie but not the full gcs? 
    • ShawnaLeigh
      That is good to hear.  I've never smoked (never even tried it).so I hear it is extremely difficult to quit.  I applaud anyone who can beat an addiction like smoking.
