Pridefall and paranoia

Recommended Posts

Hellothere

Look i know everyone seems to think this pridefall stuff is a hoax but im still paranoid. They've already doxxed three minors and attacked one. And an hour till pride starts for me, when stuff supposed to hit the fan. Me and some others run a small pride account on insta- hence my pranoia. Some live outside the US so they are safe, i sadly do not. Im debating logging out for the month judt for my mental health but if its all a hoax im gonna lcik myself for it. I hate letting them get to me but ive been losing sleep. Idk its my first Pride out and all this stuff happens. I try not to think about it but i cant. I get very paranoid very easily and this situation is unbearable. That and the protests are already making me angry that no one listens. The government doesnt listen. The police dont listen. Regardless of your views on trump- he isn't listening. Everything feels polled up and idk. Im not sure if this is even the right section to post this, im just lost on what to do. If consider it a trans issue- its a attack on all LGBT members.  We are taking all precautions but there are so many rumors and hoaxes, we cant tell whts truth and whats not.

I understand being scared, people can be very cruel. However, you shouldn't have to cower in fear just because of a possible threat. As far as I have seen, it is a total hoax, meant to scare us into silence. Don't give in, stay proud and open, we can't let them win.

Fear is mostly the reason I've been in hiding for the past 8 years.  Had a couple of bad experiences when I first moved here (I assumed all of Oregon was LGBTQ friendly... not!) while I watched the turmoil rise across the country about gay marriage.  I told myself and others, "This is going to get worse before it gets better.  I'm tagging out for a while."

 

Now things are getting to a fever pitch and the troublemakers are all up in the news.  It's the last ditch efforts of the minority who want to turn the clocks back to 1945.  They won't go down without a fight, that's always the way these things go.  They really are the few but they make a lot of noise.  The majority of people are good, as it always has been.  Remember that the majority of people quietly staying at home and out of the fight are good, too.

 

Hiding isn't working for me any longer.  We have to be safe and smart, but we don't have to stay quiet.

That's exactly how the establishment wants it.  Keep the masses distracted quarreling among themselves so we don't see the power-grabs they are pulling.  That's not new in this country.  It's always been that way, especially since the '60's.  We have to do what our heart desires.  In the end, we will prevail, I know it.  Always remember we're not the first to have to fight for our rights and acceptance.

Keep in mind that a lot of rhetoric we hear comes from the loud mouths.  In this country there has always been, and will continue to be, a silent majority, people who have an opinion but don't feel the need to shout about it at the top of their lungs.  I learned long ago to try and tune out the loud mouths and the news reported primarily for sensationalist reasons.  We have to look past all BS we are made to see and hear to really feel the pulse of the nation.  If we take the time to do that, we see that most people don't take issue with the way we express ourselves.  It's only the terrified loud mouths who are making all the racket, and they really, are the minority.  My experiences as a trans woman have for the most part, been extremely positive, and I absolutely refuse to cower in the face of a few blowhards.  Take heart, that it is never really as bad out there as it can sometimes seem.

      I have already spoken to someone who  had been over there. She was quite happy. The visit over there is about four weeks.  There are rooms attached to the hospital that I looked at before and that was part of the cost.  Still a lot of research to be done before I take any sort of action of any kind.  I am not rushing in just because I have permission to do something does not me I need to act now. There is time and I will do my homework first. 🙂

      As long as you talked with ladies that have been under Chettaut's knife, what can I say. You know better than me.   Remember you will have to add to the expenses, airplane tickets (round trip), hotel accomodation there. I hope NOT, but what if something wrong happens to you while you recuperate back in Sydney? Tailand is way too far from Sydney dear.   Do very well your homework Carrie!

      Hi Dinaki In Sydney it would cost $52,000 and that is without the hospital fees. Health insurance does not cover surgery in Australia.  I would not see any surgeon until I have spoken to someone who has already been to him.  I need to know his work is good before I make any commitments. I have already spoken to the Gender Centre about meeting ladies who have been to Thailand and hearing from their experiences and how happy they were with what was done. 🙂 I have waited this long a little longer hurts no one.  I do not expect anything until the middle or end of next year.  Thank you Carrie

      Chettawut is a plastic surgeon that started 1995 only, that tells you that he is young and is not having a good experience. In general, in Bangkok, all surgeries are truly not expensive but there is a price to pay if everything goes correctly. In this case dear Carrie, you do not want to gamble, stay way from him.   I would not let someone that has no experience, not even pulling my tooth.   I am certain that in Sydney, you have some experienced doctors in the field.  Visit this website, it is near you somewhere in Sydney Gender Reassignment Surgery

      Thanks Sara It surprised me as well.  I thought I would have to see him a few times at least.

      Congrats on the referral. Well that's a nice change from the usual gatekeeping. No feedback on the doc in Thailand.

      Hi everyone Yesterday I saw my psychiatrist for the first time. When I asked when he would like to see me again he said he did not need to see me again.  He gave me a letter of support for SRS surgery. For a Dr Chettawut  in Bangkok, Thailand. I think one of the reasons that this happened on my first visit to him is because I have lived as Carrie for the last 29 years. Has anyone used this doctor in Thailand before. Would love to here back from you. Many thanks Carrie 💖💗

      That's how I did it on my 3rd try. Tried gum and patches first. It was not easy, but almost 20 years smoke free now.   Hope all of you in the USA have a wonderful Independence Day!

      Talking a walk down nostalgia lane and found a Spotify playlist of all the songs from every Big Shiny Tunes Album.  All kinds of 90's alternative, rock and pop. These albums were compilations put together by the Canadian music tv station MuchMusic, similar to MTV in the US.
