Recommended Posts

With Halloween being not to far away. Has anyone have plans? Party, costume at work. or maybe dressing as your true self? For those that at still in the closet. I have the 30-31 off, on the 31 I have my lazer treatment. I am going as more of the real me. Gray sweater dress, gray leggings, slight heels. it will be fun and exciting.

I am going to a fetish Halloween party and have a costume that works for all three nights. Fairy princess for “whimsy”, Sorcerous for “Arcana”, and maiden for “decadence”. It will be fun because I get to be in costume, be my true self and just be in a safe space to be me.

I'm not honest;y sure. My sister-in-law has a party every year, but it's well-attended and as a raging introvert my preferred group size is about six or so unless I know them really, really well. Especially this year. My brother-in-law, who was a HUGE fan of Halloween, just passed and if the number of people at his viewing was anything to go by, the town's population is going to double that night.

 

So I'm torn. I want to go out and be pretty, but the thought of being around that many strangers makes me ill.

Would it be really to out there if i say ill be thinking of my passed close relatiives. trying to feel closer to them

 

Its actually celtic On the night of October 31 the celts celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

 

Be nice to feel them just a little closer to me. Even if its just in my mind.

 

 

I dont think ill be dressing up for it.

Not at all. It sounds like a lovely tradition. There are worse ways to spend the night than thinking fondly of people that were special to you that have gone on ahead. I could completely get into that.

A number of spiritual beliefs all come together in my neighborhood, we have neighbors who celebrate Samhain as Maid in Bedlam describes, although they participate in the U.S. version of Halloween, for me as an Episcopalian and the Catholic church just around the corner from me, it is All Saints Eve (All Hallows Eve) and most of the people attending the Catholic church are also observing a "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead), and in that Catholic Parish it is fine for children (and adults) to come to the All Saints Mass in costume.

 

My neighborhood is really pretty safe and the parents let them do Trick or Treating on my block, which my neighbors and I are happy to deal with and generous with candy hand outs and some decoration. 

 

My LGBT center which is a couple of miles away has a Trunker Treat event where participants decorate their car's trunks (boots) and have candy treats for the children, and then shows a Halloween themed movie out doors, with soft drinks and cup cakes and popcorn.  Not too sure which I will do the most of this year.

WThe trick or treating part of Halloween will be enjoyed with two 5 year olds and their mommie. There is a neighborhood across the way that is a goo area for kids to enjoy the celebration. 

 

I dont know what’s going on in my apartment building. I’m hoping the neighbors have something cool planned. There are a lot of parties going on in Hillcrest of course. There is always Balboa Park and downtown, and the haunted houses. 

 

Since i I haven’t presented in public yet, I’m excited, cause I might finally have enough courage to muster to venture out in the neighborhood.

It's my anniversary on Halloween. The party at my sister-in-law's place isn't until November 9th because a lot of the guests work haunted houses through November 2nd. I'm going to try and post Friday when my Jean's come in.

The band shirt is from my deceased brother-in-law's group. He was a HUGE fan of Halloween. You can't see my bat barrette or my tail from this angle. I haven't mastered the thing where somehow my butt and my boobs are prominently displayed in the shot. I might need more yoga.

@Rachael Very nice outfit.  You look really nice in dark attire and I like the dark hair too.

 

@Jackie C. You look just fine...butt, boobs and the whole look.  We are our biggest critics.

 

 

If things work out and the outfits fit, my wife our girlfriend and I may be attending a party as 1920's flapper girls.  It's been awhile since I got all dressed up for a Halloween party so I'm a little bit apprehensive.  It's social events like these I wish I drank.

 

Here's sort of what I'm going for...

@Susan R Ooh! Risque! I don't think I could get away with a skirt that short. Also, the butt and boobs on my costume are padding and falsies respectively, my body isn't all that without a little help. It's Halloween though and my brother-in-law would approve. The party is mostly for him. I'm a tremendous introvert so I'm hoping I can get through the evening without anyone having to peel me off the ceiling. 😋

Jackie C.  They are size 16 women’s. I think they came from exotic high heels. And are made by pleaser. EHH has lots of nice shoes and can be returned if necessary. 

Best wishes & have fun

      Monday morning Blaaa.  Coffee is gone.  Now I suppose I have to get somethings done at work. Some of which mean heading out to go do inspection at remote clinics around the hospital campus.  Its so cold out too.  Sigh. Oh well.  Its money...

      This is not a unique thing Ronan, I started HRT back in 94 and have never officially "Came Out" to anyone. As the changes took place everyone just assumed that I have become different. I've even been asked by nervy people who don't even know me if I'm MtF or FtM and I think it's hilarious, and I usually respond with, "I dunno, take your pick!"

      Not to make light of your situation, but I moved during the winter, once. My washing machine slipped off the dolly, fell on its side then slide down the hill a block away. I'm not wishing a winter move on anyone!
    • KymmieL
      TammyAnn, That is my strategy on the move. Getting away starting a new. I guess that I am just waiting for the right position to open up at the home office. There is one that I have put in for in the past in another location. That is one option but something keeps me here. that "L" word. Or maybe it is not wanting to move in the winter. My mind is in such turmoil right now it isn't funny. But I put on a male face and do what is expected of me.    Kymmie

      Well I clearly have a lot more to work with my therapist to understand myself and what my life is and what it is turning into.  Unfortunately my life effects others which makes it difficult to just pick a "road" and travel down it at Mach2.  I do not want to throw anything away, especially if its worth saving.  But I'm at a point where I am questioning this.  I've been her before and have lived through very hard divorces.  I know once you cross a point your mind starts to make itself up before you are ready.  A defense mechanism of sorts.  However, coming to common ground with her does seem possible to me.  I am still not sure if it ever will be that way for her.  Yes she has changed a LOT since I came out to her and our original statements don't seem to be holding firm like they seemed that night.  I know this will all take time but she still remains firm about this one thing, "once I start presenting full female in public.  That is the point where our relationship will start on different paths".  She said this to me just last night after a wonderful weekend together. I understand her point of view and feelings on this.  I do.  She is who she is and she respects me for the same.  I truly believe this.  However it does give me that little bit of a pinch in my heart knowing she can have this limit to where she can discard me as a spouse and just start being my friend only.  I have a hard time wrapping me head and heart around this one point she keeps saying.  However nice she is being now, accepting, kind, and even using the proper pronoun's she still has this limit she will not cross.  That hurts.  It makes me want to pull away before it gets any further.  We are both not getting any younger.. But I am waiting to see what develops and see what my therapist has to say.   I'm in no hurry to move out by no means, ruin what seems to be "working" for now but I definitely do not want to keep her life on hold either.

      I can relate to trying to sleep but the brain's little engine running and running... Sometimes we try to find solutions for things that only time will cure. My own situation - and it seems quite a few others - is similarly complex. If I'm away from her house for many days, she gets desperately lonely. So it may just be that the convenience shoe fits on more than one foot! Is my circumstance, in which I have a female "partner" but remain unmarried, one of convenience? Absolutely. But when feelings become intertwined, things seldom come down to simple transactions. It wouldn't surprise me to find that your wife stared into the abyss of being alone and thought "wait a minute!"
    • TammyAnne
      So I got a new CD on a whim. "Postcard" by Mary Hopkin. Have been enjoying listening to her clear, sweet voice singing "Those Were the Days" and thinking it odd that I never noticed that I identified with female singers as a child, singing in first person as a she and never giving it a thought. Does that make me smile? Yes. It even makes me chuckle. Singing has been out of my life since being in the Army wrecked my voice. But my voice is back, and the sense of euphoria that voicing happy songs gives me.

      Good morning! Sipping my coffee, cool weather with clearish skies. KymmieL hopefully things won't have to devolve into further difficulties for you.  But sometimes a change of place - starting over - all there is to do. Whichever way things go, I certainly wish you the best, smooth sailing, fair winds and following seas as the sailors say. I'm sure you know the VA is very transferrable. They will not only take your case in a new location, but I find that at every appointment I get asked "are you able to eat, are you in fear for your safety, do you have a place to live, is anyone hitting/abusing you?" As well as "have you fallen recently?" I feel really blessed to have my own home/studio away from my female partner, who has displayed some very negative reactions towards me in my feminine side. Getting away to another town has its advantages.

      I thought about it all a lot last night.  Laying awake not able to let my brain shut down and let me sleep.  This has me up all night many nights running every little thing through my mind trying to figure out what to do or think.  I think maybe she is trying to see a new alternative to her original statement of  "if your going to be women, a lesbian, I can not stay married to you".  Perhaps.  I'm not sure yet.  I will just see how things go and take them day by day. My friend here NB Adult, gave me some tough love in Toni post. (sorry Toni for hijacking your thread).  Her advice to look at myself before blaming her is quite spot on.  I am getting caught up in what it is for me and loosing sight on how it effects her too.  What the entire marriage is to me now vs when we first starting living together.  Time definitely has changed the way I think and feel.  NB Adult is correct in saying the things she said to me in Toni's post.  I may even look at marriage is a convenience to being able to live like I want to.  To not being alone.  Security. Im not saying that I do not love my wife but I also have never been able to truly be my self and I don't know what that means still.  I don't know exactly what I want or don't want still.   Now I will say I do not post everything about myself and my marriage.  Like some may think.  There is a lot that happens, or had happened, behind closed doors in our marriage well beyond my current coming out to her that effects us both.  Effects how we both think and feel about our marriage.  I can say I was trying to get past the shock and awe early in my reveal of loosing her and everything in my life, at her request, and now it seems she may be having a change of heart.  Time will tell.

      Such a lovely name Evelyn. Glad you found another part of yourself.    In addition to what Jackie has said, you’ll be surprised how many people read all or most of the topics on the forums. I read most, whether I have something to contribute and post or not. There are lots of times I have nothing else to add, as the many folks on here are amazing at sharing and offering advice or words of comfort. 
    • SaraAW
      I totally get how confusing this can be. This may have been an attempt on her part to explore possibilities. As much as she says she won’t enter into a lesbian relationship, this could have been a trial run to see if indeed she could make it work.  It could also be many other things, maybe trying to tempt you to stay in the closet or maybe she was feeling very lonely and needed some comfort.   I can’t imagine the current times being any less confusing for her, than it is for you.  I would suggest continuing to talk with her, ask her about this and what it meant for her and you.    Maybe it will soon be time for couples therapy to help work through some of this together.    I wish I had some other advice, but I’m pretty much in the same boat and am just trying to let time soften some of the raw emotion. Not reading into everything that happens in the meantime is so hard.    *hugs*
