Thank all of you SO MUCH for your support and I could never have gotten this far without.

Congratulations!

 

Now you too can say, "-what the heck-! I had my injection ten minutes ago! I should already be a woman!"

 

Strongly recommend the Bowsette the Queen Koopa series of transmemes on YouTube. Not all of them apply, but there's always one or two that make me laugh out loud.

 

Hugs!

Have the chin strap of your hard hat under your chin, buckle the seat and shoulder straps securely, keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times and enjoy the ride.  Toooowhoot toooowhoot.

That is great news Shay!!! I'm sure you are feeling a lot of different emotions about everything. Until I joined this forum, I thought transitioning was something that only really young people were able to do. I watched so many videos on HRT and being trans. They were all much younger than I am. I guess I just figured there was a point when it was just not allowed. I have been hiding behind my fear and making excuses. Everyone here has shown me that age is not quite as much of a big deal as maybe I thought. That gives me hope. Thank you.

When my band used to play the song, the audience was ALWAYS surprised to find out "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am" wasn't the title of the song.... 🤥

      T-Shirt bras are super soft and comfy. There's a bit of give in them too, so that's lovely. Good choice! Doesn't come in my size though. <pout>   Hugs!
    • Shay
      That is super great news. I am excited for you. I am waiting for news therapist to get my referral letter and want to see if my old psych will also help me. Congrats. Shay

      Hey @TransMex! I'm glad to see that you're still with us.   Real talk? That's your depression gnawing at your ear. It makes it harder to focus. It makes it hard to love yourself. It makes it hard to pursue your dreams. I get it. I've been where you are. You feel hopeless. Alone. Afraid. You just want to put your burden down. You need the hurting to stop. I let that go on until I was forty-eight. Don't do that, it was a terrible idea.   So yeah, the first steps are the hardest. You need to be talking to a therapist. They don't have to be a gender therapist. That would be ideal, but learning to love yourself is a very important step on your journey. I realize that the depression makes it very hard to take care of yourself, but that first step: Talking to a therapist, helped a lot. Hormones helped a little more. Every step made things just a little better. It got a little easier to take care of myself. It got a little easier to pursue my dreams again. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting better. Every little step helps. After you force yourself to take that first step, every step after comes just a little easier.   HRT should help with the mental static too. Once you can think again, it will be easier for you to plan and work towards your goals. In the meantime, we're always here if you need to talk, OK?   I can see that pretty girl looking back at me in the mirror more often than not. It's a great feeling. I want you to have that feeling too.   Hugs!

      I actually did get the Diagnosis I was expecting!    I made a video about the experience which is here      But obviously any questions you have I'm happy to answer here no matter how personal.

      Hey Mex your only 27. I didn't start to full transition until 3year ago. I am 57. Your young which is the best time I think to start transition. I am not sure if you are American Citizen or not. Your grammar is well verse. But if you are and you live in Cali. I would look at trying to get on The Affordable  Care Health plan or Obama ( Heath Care L.A) plan . They will pay for HRT , Gender therapist  and if you qualify they will pay up to 80% of all your surgeries , which included, Female Fascial Feminization , Vocal, Breast and you bottom.  Regardless, Hardest part ( for me) in my transition is moving forward, not giving up or in to my  dysphoria. The easiest  part is giving up. Be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      Sad that it happened, good that some justice is being done, and there will be some closure.

      This page on Trans Pulse was developed to address your need @HollyNoel   https://www.transgenderpulse.com/clothing-size-charts/   At least it is a start. 
    • HollyNoel
      Thank you Sara. You are an angel. I will check the websites to see if they have fittings.
    • HollyNoel
      Elizabeth, i really do like your name. It's so pretty. Anyway thanks for the heads up, I wonder if Target carries my size. Would be sweet to pick up several bras and matching panties. Thank you so much
    • HollyNoel
      SaraAW, the band fit nice around the rib cage. It wasn't snug so I'm guessing it might have been a bit too big but not by much I think. I could get 3 fingers between the band and my chest. The cups were definitely to big. My breast wasn't even clots to filling either one. The calculated said 54DD was my recommended bra. I'm thinking that since walmart has fitting rooms maybe if I explain to the attendant maybe she will let me try on a few different sizes. I can ask, all they can do is say no and if that happens I'll just buy a couple and return them if they don't fit. Most business like to work with trans people and the ones that don't like trans people do work with us out of fear of getting sued. So the next time I'm in Wal-Mart I'm going to grab a few that I like and ask the attendant.
