I got a call from my GP (doctor) today and he accepted without question my request for a referral for therapy.  Clinic is just waiting for the referral to arrive to set up my first appointment.

Very nice @KayC. Incredible how this place is rolling in good news this morning. It is a big step and should help you make some big decisions. Therapy changed a lot of things for me in a positive way. I’m hoping the same for you.

 

My Best,

Susan R🌷

Japan? Might move there

Hi Sophie.  Send me a PM and I would be happy to discuss with you.  Japan has significant social issues in Trans acceptance.

Hi KayC

I found that therapy helped to clarify my thoughts.

When I grew up in the 60's those around me and in general talked about people like that, so I grew up thinking there was something wrong with me.  I thought I must have been crazy.

I sought out therapy and hormones in 1990.  

The first time I saw my psychiatrist I tried telling him I had felt that I was crazy and the spent the time telling me I was one of the sanest people that he had met.

It has always been a fond memory and something to laugh about in later years.

Dr Greenway helped me so much in accepting myself and just being happy being me .

So yes therapy does help.

Lots of love to everyone 

Hugs and kisses

Carrie

      Well that sounds like it went good I’m glad the management is going to correct the inappropriate talk. Hopefully you can get your employee file changed quickly. I’m sorry to hear that your wife is not supportive. I could only hope when I come out at work it goes that smooth I’m afraid not just because of the industry I’m in.

      First, it's not "transgendered", it's just transgender. No need for the -ed.   A transgender guy, is typically referred to as a trans man (FtM). Transfeminine may be a more accurate term as it's used by those who are AMAB (assigned male at birth), but may not fully identify as binary women, or just want to partially transition. I think the terms transfeminine/transmasculine are labels that are used more by Non-Binary trans people.

      i was just telling my wife i remember hearing Take It Easy for the first time on vacation with my mom and older brother on the only family vacation in North Carolina at some camp,ground in the north west corner, cant remember name but there was a dam nearby. i also aaw the movie Andromeda Strain at the campgrounds on a large white sheet. Wrote some of my first decent songs back then. ah memories...

      I was chatting with a friend this morning and she brought up this song. Great bass line, and the message rings true today, post transition...So here it is, their catalog (Eagles) is deep and wide....

      The whole question of how you identify is inherently confusing.  My brother highlighted it for me one time when he asked me what the difference was between feeling like a man and feeling like a woman.  I realized that the question was impossible to answer.   Initially, I thought it was unanswerable because I thought I had, until then, only been male.  But, since then, I realized that our gender identity doesn't change throughout our lives.  I have only ever been a woman.    At first, I was a woman pretending to be a man.  Now, I am a woman who knows she is a woman.  The only part that changed was the pretense.    What convinced me was trying it.  Acting like a man felt forced and unpleasant.  Acting like a woman was natural, easy and comfortable.  That is the difference.   If that describes you, then there is a good chance that you are transgender, though you might not be at one end or the other of the spectrum.  You might be somewhere in the middle.  Whatever feels unforced and natural is where you belong.    On the other hand, if what feels happy is being a guy, then you might not be trans.

      Great idea - I haven't jounaled since my first wife left and I'd hate to read those now - I was in hell and don't want to remember but I kept them just in case someday I might  want to what those days were like.   Since being drawn to Transpulse and found you tremendous women - you have changed my life in the matter of a month and I have a LOT to write about now that I have found kindred spirits.

      Congratulations Shawna,    I'm so happy for you.   Hugs
