Just wondered if anyone ever shops at a good will store or other place where clothing is donated.  I had some great dresses and I have dropped some off at my local good will.  Its usually inexpensive there and I can see some of you have put a lot of money into some nice things.

I used to do much more shopping at our local Good Will stores than i've done recently.  Hoping there was amongst other things a great place to see what sizes  and styles fit me best  as i was finding my "own style".  Today it's so much easier......a few favorite skirts and tops and a nice outfit or two for special occasions.

I'm at the point where I am just replacing items now more than adding to my wardrobe.  I do shop at goodwill but am very fussy, as if its not what I am looking for or isn't in perfect shape I pass on things.  I will say I frequently find new items with tags still on them.   Good buys abound!

When I went full time last year I didn’t have any clothes, so that was my first stop. I ended up getting something like 20 pieces of clothing for less than 50 dollars. Without that I wouldn’t have been able to be full time. Since then I get a lot at target and old navy. And I still check in on all the consignment shops too. But a year in I feel like I have a good start to a useable wardrobe.

It's not often I shop in those type of shops for clothing but often look for other things that may take my fancy. I did buy a nice fleece in one recently though. It was just the colour I was looking for and in new condition.

Hi Ned, I have shopped at Good Will many times and have found some great skirts, dresses, jeans, tops and shorts. You have to look things over carefully.  I usually hold items up to me to make sure I’m close on size.  I buy my panties and bras in Kohl’s or the Hanes Bali discount store.  I don’t buy men’s clothing any more.


Good luck shopping.

      @Victoria_ I agree - really cute photo   @QuestioningAmber the reduction of anxiety and calmness has been my favorite part of HRT so far - hoping the body starts doing its thing but I'm happy with anxiety and depression reduction - that along has reduced the gender dysphoria.

      My 2 cents, it's just my opinion : No we can't. But, I suspect people are mixing periods symptoms with hormonal imbalance. Because the human body control hormones in a very complex way taking a pill can never replicate this delicate balance. So maybe sometimes the hormones you take doesn't match what the body need or phenomenons like that. If you are like me and forget to take them then maybe you will feel the consequences. I'm very skeptic about that, even when it's me feeling such things because I know just how much my brain react when it comes to dysphoria. I'm not trying to argue here, but for me when I feel things like that I'm just telling myself : "hey there brain, wishfull thinking" But hey, maybe I'm just wrong and I do have cramps and not just something like irritable bowel syndrome

      @Victoria_ I love the wig and the whole look in the picture, it is very cute.   Just finished my first cup of coffee. Took the day off since I need to burn vacation time and I have two appointments today, psychiatry and therapy. I have a span between the two, so I am going to go for a walk in the park I think. My psychiatrist was very pleased to hear that I have a less anxiety since starting Estrogen, which has been a happy surprise.

      As Sara said. Go to a professional piercer One who has been trained. Yes, there are trainers for body piercing. Make sure that all the equipment used has been autoclave sterile.  You also may check into the health regulations in your state. If the state references South Dakota's tattoo and body piercing regulations. That is one of the best if not the best in the country.   The South Dakota tattoo/ body piercing health regulations were co-written by a couple friends of mine, a professional tattooist and his wife, a professional body piercer. She took her profession very seriously  even taking anatomy classes.   But ultimately your choice, have a semi sharp stud pushed through your ear with an instrument not able to be hospital sterile or a sterile ultra sharp needle making a hole. Plus the after care instruction. and a place where you can contact the person who did the work about ANY problems.   Kymmie
