Repairwear Uplifting

Olay SPF 30 ( a must all the time)

*I don't use eye cream in the day, only at night


Nightime routine

Take The Day Off (cleasing balm)

Facial Soap 

Clarifying Lotion 2

Clinique Smart Night

Repairwear Laser Focus (eye cream)


What is yours ladies, do you have a favorite brand?

My go to moisturizer is Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair.  It doesn't make a big difference with the wrinkles I have, but it does a great job of minimizing pores pretty effectively and evening my skin tone.


My cosmetics come from several different brands.  For the past two years I have been using L'oreal Infallible Total Cover foundation and I love it.  It is highly pigmented, so it covers amazingly well, but it is surprisingly light on the skin.  The coverage is build-able, so it allows me to target the places on my face that need more coverage.

      Hi Tess! and Welcome! From reading your About Me page I see we have some commonality in our experiences and issues with our spouses.   You're not alone, so I hope you can find great experiences and advice on these Forum pages.  I have found them extremely helpful just over a few months.  Deep breaths .. One step at a time❣️

      I enjoy reading, so when I was beginning transition I bought several books written by transgender women.  Reading their life stories gave me a lot to reflect on and insight into the journey ahead.  Then I would write in my own journals.  That kept my mind busy, helped me find myself and discover the real me.

      Hi Charlotte! and Welcome!   Really happy to have you here.    Looking forward to hearing more from you❣️

      That was such an important Supreme Court ruling.  Hope the DoD listens and acts!

      For me, this is the hardest part too.  That my dysphoria involves somebody else ... somebody I love and I don't want to lose and that I feel responsible for her unhappiness about this.  Its a double whammy of stress and anxiety on top of what is already there. Aggam, I think if we both stay anchored in the 3 main points you listed, we have a good chance to navigate our way through this.  That's my hope anyway .. for you and me, both❣️

      thank you - I just received answer on hold up from my NP - she says my doctor indicates it takes up to 2 weeks to transfer records but they are trying to push tohe transfer - at least now I know - I'll try to keep my mind off it and continue with my lady'fing activities and maybe write another song or three.

      I am not a therapist, but to me the label guy you keep using, sounds to me like you are either struggling with self acceptance, or you are likely not a trans woman. There are still an infinite of options on the scale from cis male to trans woman, and it is possible you land somewhere in between. Labels do not mean a whole lot, as everyone puts their own interpretation on the labels; however, they can help to sort of guide you to areas of further self-exploration.   Again there is nothing wrong with being a cis guy who just likes things that our current culture has deemed feminine. If you look through history, there is constant change as to what is male or feminine, sometimes flip flopping, sometimes it's more blurred.   The only requirement to be transgender is to identify as anything of than the what you were assigned at birth. If you are more comfortable being a guy than being anything other than a guy, you are not trans. Hope this helps some.

      I agree With Kathy, find a way to express yourself. taking charge of my progress is a great way to ease the dysphoria for me. It also gives me something to take my mind of whatever is triggering me.

      Waiting makes dysphoria rise.  Making progress makes it fall.  So, what progress can you make today?  Paint your nails?  Try a new hair style?  Be "out" in some new situation or location?

      what tips besides doing my voice exercises, walking, make up and clothing and music....to help reduce anxiety and disphoria? My NP at consulr a week ago thursday said when test results and records were complete i could start hrt and it would be this past week. i checked to make sure everything i needed to do was done and that was complete. Friday no call from pharmacy and will check again today. I do have an issue with anticipation and i have all weekend to wait... and it is driving me nuts....waiting is not something to happen
