The last couple of weeks I have actually been leaving the house more, mostly to pick up things we need or for work. That being said, it is taking me a bit to get used to people looking at me publicly. I didn't realize how much more armor had softened during that time, but already … Continue reading Two Incidents
I have been posting to social media as a transwoman now for 4 years. The last two are when I have hit my stride, and while I don't pass, I can look pretty good sometimes, and I think it is just slowly getting better. In the last two years I have gotten a lot of … Continue reading Social Media DMs and The Weirdness of It
This weekend has been fantastic, primarily because of my awesome husband, but also because I think something in me has settled. Transition, the constant medical appointments, etc has all sort of settled into some acceptance of my life. Medical is something I just have to deal with, the weekly appointments, the travel to Phoenix in … Continue reading A wonderful weekend with my husband
At the start of the new year, there is always a 10 year (and sometimes 20 years) challenge where people post photos from different time periods. I am starting to really like myself so I thought I would do both of those. In addition, I am going to post my first "almost sexy" pic as … Continue reading 10 and 20-year challenge
It has been a long time since I was out and about in public as often as this last week. I forgot about the dozen microaggressions in each store, and the contrasting supporting smiles I get. This has been the most I have been in public with the new boobs, and the new fat transfer, … Continue reading Harassed twice in 15 hours…
I have to admit that I never understood why anyone would put botox or lip filler in before I transitioned. Not that I ever had a problem with it. I always felt a person should do what they want with their body as long as it made them happy, but I never understood it. Well … Continue reading Overcoming pre-transition ideas.
I absolutely love the results from my surgeries on my face via FFS. The bone work laid out by Dr. Ley, and the skin/muscle/fat work done by Dr. Mangubat have left me for the first time in 50 years finding I love how I look, and not looking at myself so hatefully. While I have … Continue reading Traditional women’s concerns
This is it, I turned 50 today and I am not sure what to really talk or consider about it. The first photo of me in my 50s. I can tell you I don't feel bad, I feel really good. I am in a great marriage of 29 years this year. I am happily working … Continue reading 50
I look back and I notice that the last post I did was the beginning of May, here it is the middle of June and now I am just getting around to posting. I suspect that is because this was a lot harder recovery from surgery the normal. I think it resulted in me having … Continue reading Hard recovery is mostly over.
Project Throwback: April 14, 2013 It is uncommon for the hubby to get pictures of me. Especially pictures I am not aware of. Here is one of those, plus a second from same day (but I was aware of that). That butt is "magically delicious" or at least that is what the PJs are saying. … Continue reading PT: Hubby gets revenge
